The push pin is on my pond. you can see the few houses across the street from us. This photo is outdated since there is now a house just to the south of us as well. Then you notice all the FIELDS.
If you go north for just under a mile, you get to the thriving metropolis of Little Town. You may notice all the FIELDS around it.
This, by contrast, is where we used to live. Perhaps you notice the distinct lack of FIELDS? And the fact that it rates color? And the fact that the town continues on beyond the borders of this photo?
Culture shock, folks. It’s been almost 18 months since we moved here, but . . . culture shock. I still can’t get over how far we have to drive to get anywhere. I’m pretty much kinda over the whole Lack Of Target Within Five Minutes Of My House thing, but not quite over the Lack Of Anything Within Fifteen Minutes Of My House thing.
In other news, we have fence posts! I mean, what is the point of having all that FIELD around if you don’t throw up a fence and stick your horse in it, right? I’ll maybe take a photo this weekend after more progress has been made. The goal is to have the first part of the pasture done by the end of the month so that we can bring the horse home. The barn won’t be up until sometime in October, but we can build some kind of temporary lean-to to shelter the horse in the meantime.
In other other news, I have been caffeine free for three days now. I don’t think I’ve gone this long without caffeine and a resultant migraine (which consequently sends me straight back to the caffeine) for at least three years. I’ve got one can in the garage in case of a migraine, but that’s it. No more daily dose. Yay me!
Next on my hit list: sugar.
Anybody with me on that one?
And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt would be getting proficient on the horse were it not for an evil doll threatening to skewer him off.
