the thing I'll miss

The sky. As my hubby says "they have great dark here." That's because there isn't much here so not a lot of lights around. We can turn off the porch light and see the Milky Way from the front yard.

We can also see the lights from towns 10 miles away. During the day if you go out on the highway that runs past here you can actually see the buildings of one town 10 miles away. There's a wind farm down in Texas that we can see the very tops of the windmills during the day with binoculars and we see the red lights all blinking right down on the horizon at night. The wind farm is about 20 miles away.

There are no obstructions between us and the horizon for a full 360° so we see full sunrises, sunsets, moonrises and moonsets. I've seen some pretty awesome ones here. We've also seen some pretty wild looking storms.

5900, more or less

That's the approximate number of miles I'll drive from the first time we went for Bill's first in person interview the 10th of May to when I'll take my cousin's daughter home the 6th of July.

The girls and I are just going to shuffle stuff around in the house today so it's easier to get around in.

Tomorrow I'll take granddaughter home to her father's in Alamosa and cousin's daughter home to Lamar. That little trip will be almost 700 miles.

They'll both be back to help load and unload the 4th of July weekend. Then I'll pay them both and take them shopping in Greeley. At least I'll only have to take cousin's daughter home after our shopping, granddaughter will go home with her dad.

16 more days!!

My middle granddaughter and the daughter of one of my first cousins are both here packing. They're both 14 so they still have good backs and knees. LOL

They have the kitchen packed. Tomorrow they'll start the sewing room.
