Joy List Monday

We have been blessed with abundant Joys lately. Here are just a few:

  • dinner brought over by neighbors after a long day unloading the truck when we first arrived
  • farm fields just a few blocks away
  • "urban" (in a town of about 4,400 I'm not sure that urban is quite the right term) farming in our new neighborhood -- chickens in backyards and veggies in front
  • local food -- our fantastic food co-op, the co-op creamery (cheese!) in the next town, the butcher/meat-processing facility just outside of town that sells local meats
  • friendly, welcoming people in the neighborhood
  • seeing a bald eagle above my parents' farm and then a couple days later seeing one fly over our house in town
  • visiting with new friends who not only fed us a delicious meal of home-grown, home baked goodness, but also sent us home with buckets full of bounty from their beautiful and productive gardens
  • seeing Amish buggies driving down our street multiple times each day
  • lots of time to hang out and visit with my parents
  • long walks each day with much to discover
  • feeling settled and cozy in our new home (I will share photos soon!)
