After some fruitless Google searches, we remembered a message we had seen on a car in the food co-op parking lot earlier that day:
|LOVE TRUMPS BUMMERS|
One of my favorite quotes from a Barbara Kingsolver book comes from Animal Dreams:
So in the spirit of embracing love and not running screaming into the woods (with some exceptions), here we are.
Now that you know all that, here are some pictures of our house!
|The view of our patio from the kitchen. Note the Red Chile Bible cookbook.|
|Here is Eric on our patio!|
|A cute chicken that lives on our windowsill.|
|Our kitchen's best feature, a double oven!|
|We have a FIREPLACE in our bedroom that has this awesome tile mosaic.|
Coming from the wet moss forest that is Bellingham, I'm a little shocked at how dry it is here. Dried-up riverbeds are prolific and there is much more dirt. I'm definitely missing the greenness of the pacific northwest. On the plus side, all of our dishes and clothes dry at (comparatively) rapid speed and it is sunny every day! Today I spent hours reading in the sun and wearing my floppy sunhat, and when I walked to the plaza I left my coat, hat, and scarf at home.
|On a walk to the park in the sun! Almost every building or structure here is adobe.|
Eric here. I'll be posting on this blog in bold. Marie basically covered everything so I don't really have much to say, but I hope all is well with you and yours and that someday tons of people will read this blog and Marie and I will become rich beyond our wildest dreams. Which leads me to wonder... how do people make money on blogs?
Anyway. Much love. Keep on the lookout for the impending flood of kitty pictures.
