Our agent had the house listed at realtor.com but had said it was going to be this weekend before she got it up on her website and several other “land and ranch sites” and she would have more info there. I noticed it was up on her site today and as I was reading through the listing, this sentence made me sad and proud, at the same time.
This property provides everything needed to grow your own food and enjoy the fruits of your labor year round…..making it virtually self-contained.
That was our goal and I’m happy to say, we did it!
This is another part I loved.
The land is absolutely beautiful….covered in oaks and other native trees and brush. Trails have been cut through the property to allow for easy access to all points either by walking or on an ATV. Hunting is awesome in this area with plenty of deer and turkey.
I need to save that webpage so I can go back and read it and remember all we did there, the fun we had, the trials, the anticipation of garden produce and fruit, the years we had freezers full of venison.
Here in MO, we’ll still be prepared, but not trying to grow our own food as we were there. Here, it means keeping water on hand and not having a well. There were a whole lot of people in Texas over the past couple of weeks that would have been real happy to have a well and even a small generator to turn it on and pump fresh, clean water.
For us, it was shocking to see how many people just totally were not prepared for three days of no power. One Second After should be required reading! The frigid temps made it a bit more challenging but we’ve always said it was easier to stay warm than to be comfortable when the outside temps are 110+ and there’s no power.
There were several showings of the house today. One couple was from the Austin area and had been without water for a few days and then had to boil it and said it still doesn’t taste right. Vince gave them water straight from our faucet and they were impressed.
According to our realtor, we’re supposed to get an offer this evening. My fingers are crossed! 🙂
YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!! Fingers crossed for a good offer and Vince be packing and headed your way on the QT!
GREAT! Fingers crosseed!

One Second After(book): by which author, Judy?
Agreeing in prayer, Lord Jesus, please send a buyer for the property who will absolutely love being there, and will offer them a good price.

Laura – One second after by William R. Forstchen. He has a trilogy. One second after, One year after and The Finial Day. When I started the first one I had to put it aside and come back to it at a later date. I was home alone the first time with my husband out of town and started thinking all the worst case scenario thoughts.
Judy Laquidara says
I did the same thing. Kept putting it down and picking it back up but it made me a better prepper having read those books.
Susan Nixon says
That is really fast, but that was predicted, too.
It was a great place…keep your fingers crossed and I give up a little prayer…
I’ll bet the people who were not prepared before will not change and the next time it will be the same…it’s happened many times in California.

So exciting – keeping fingers, toes, arms, legs crossed for y’all!!

I sure hope you get a great offer quickly! It sounds like a wonderful property so should sell quickly.
Sandi B says
So excited for you! I know it’s bittersweet. But, I think this has ended up being perfect timing. Prayers being sent.
