Hello friends….I have missed you!!! We  have been in our home for a week now. I do believe it will be quite a while before we are settled. There is much to do along with painting and some repairs and a lot of things to figure out now that we live at the elevation of 5,700. It was my first time driving home from work last Saturday. This is what it looked like.

I got off at 5:00 and had heard that it was supposed to snow. I ended up pulling off the side of the road along with a few other people. There were men that were ready to assist with putting chains on for $150.00, plus the price of chains for $40.00. I opted for calling my husband. It was quite an experience for a greenhorn like myself.

I have many stories to share about our events in moving. At times it brought out the very worst in us because we were tired and still are.

Room with a view

I love the trees

Our view from our front door

Here’s the kitten we rescued. We are calling her Riley.

Riley has adjusted to living with three other cats. She runs around like a little wind up toy when she is not sleeping. Despite the challenges we have faced we are grateful to have been able to purchase a home. Ten years ago we actually were in a tent for about four months. It is amazing now to look back and see where we have been and to now  be living out our  dream of being  homeowners. My husband tells me this is it…What I have learned during this ordeal is that I am actually one tough little cookie. I have moved and carried things that I didn’t think I was capable of doing and helped do my share of shoveling snow. I will get to live out my version of Little House in the Prairie in the mountains. Wood stove and all…Great to be back!

      Mufidah, nice to hear from you..Yes, we have been busy and still at it and will be for a while. It is indeed worth the work. I love viewing your photos!

    We got stuck in a blizzard near Dalhart Texas this past December 17th and were in a tight spot for almost two full days. Glad you made it safely.

      It makes me think how important it is to have necessities on hand for those times, water, flashlights etc. I appreciate your thoughts!
