Vince signed the papers last night to list the house in Texas. It’s what I’ve wanted to do – move to Missouri, and have Vince here, so why did I cry when he sent me all the paperwork?
Here’s a little trip down memory lane.
I went back and pulled some of the memorable photos. Before we had the high fence built, we had to put PVC pipe and chicken wire up to keep the deer from eating all the fruit trees. The high fence is up but we must have just had it installed and not taken down the PVC fencing yet.
Above is the inside of the shop . . the area where we built the sewing room. Just seeing these pictures – the planning, the anticipation . . it was a fun ride.
I loved the porch! Many hours were spent out there. A couple of times a year, we’d take everything off the porch and power wash the porch and walls.
Boots . . the day he showed up. It was July, 2013. He was such a little kitty but he was sweet!
Carrots from the garden.
Oh, how I miss my chickens but that was something I agreed to give up if he would move here. Vince never liked having them.
Fresh garlic and onions!
I’ll so miss the fruit trees. I loved when Addie was there this past summer and she’d get up in the morning, go out to the plum tree still in her night shirt, climb up on a ladder and sit there eating plums. When she had eaten all she could reach, she’d move the ladder and eat more. She loved those plums.
I’m glad George was able to visit and spend some time in the old mesquite tree.
Farmer Vince on his tractor.
I’ll defintely miss the free high speed internet with battery backup for when the power is out.
I will NOT miss the scorpions!
I will not miss driving 10 hours and being so excited to see this sign.
In the end, I guess I wasn’t tough enough for Texas. Or, maybe I just wasn’t tough enough to live without being able to see Addie more. 🙂
