Ah, yes. Our new place in Columbia. Just the beginning phase of building.
Our driveway. Well, what will be our driveway. Looking from the road towards where our house will be.
See? They’ve dug it out. It’s going to be a nice little one story house with a walk out basement with lots and LOTS of windows. This next photo is my beautiful meadow.
The builder saved me some big old rocks that I think I’m going to put beside my garden to sit on, or maybe under some trees in the orchard we’re going to put in. Apple trees, peach, pecan. Oh, yes!
Here’s the meadow looking another direction. You can just see the telephone wires in the distance. Oh, and our meadows? They come complete with lots of ticks this year due to the mild winter…
This area used to be the pond/lagoon/icky stagnant water thingie. We’ve drained it and we’re filling it in. This is where we’re probably going to put the orchard. In a nice little secret opening on the land.
This is the elm tree that SuperGuy cleared all the nasty Locust trees out from underneath it. And got stuck in the leg with a nasty locust thorn. And we’re currently having a “discussion” on whether or not his leg is infected…
So, all roads lead to home…come visit!! It’s supposed to be completed in about 6-ish months. So October, maybe?
We haven’t thought of a name for our new home yet. We’ve had our series of “Love Nests” and we’re thinking of naming this home something else. Considering it took us almost a month to name Murphy, I’m not sure a name will pop up for us any time soon.
Oh, and yes, we still have our home in St. Louis and go back and forth between them. World travelers, don’t you know. Well, state travelers anyway. Back and forth on Hwy 70. Back and forth.
