I sure have been enjoying this Fall weather!!! Its been in the 60's during the day and the 40's at night! Perfect! We've pulled out the long sleeves and jackets. No, I haven't given in and given up my sandals yet. :) It has to be snowing outside before I put on boots again! I hate shoes! I grew up barefoot, and can't stand anything on my foot. I've reluctantly agreed to sandals, but that's as far as I'll go during the summer! :) You'd be surprised what I can do in sandals! If I can't do it in sandals, I'd rather do it barefoot! The folks at church here can tell how cold it is outside by what I'm wearing. Winter has officially arrived when JoAnna puts on her boots. :) I never even used to where those when we lived in TN. But, I gave in when we got 2 1/2 feet of snow last Christmas and my toes froze every time I attempted to go outside. I lost that battle. :)
Anyway, we've been spending a lot of time outside in the evenings. We've been praying that God will give us a house in the country soon. Andy talked to a realtor recently who seems to think he could get us a real good deal on a place when one becomes available. God knows our hearts and our desire to raise our children in the country. Town life may work for some, but the best place to raise a child is the country. We want to give a country atmosphere to our children before they get much older. Both our children would live outside if I let them! :) I pray almost every day that God will grant us this desire and provide us with a house that would suit our needs, with a little bit of land to plant a garden. I can't wait to raise grape vines again! I so enjoyed toying around with my grapes in TN, and the result was fresh juice on our breakfast table and jellies on our toast! There's nothing like growing a garden and then enjoying the fruit of your labor! Oh don't get me wrong! God has been so good to us and the house we have in town has been such a blessing and just what we needed to get us moved up here to Indiana last winter. But we would love to eventually have a country home when God sees fit to give it to us. And when He does, the first thing I'm going to do is buy some grape vines!!! :)
