Out in the Country...

Hey y'all!  I'm back with a quick post about our adventure so far in a new town and house.

We still have boxes to unpack and some things to organize, but when it's done I'll take you on a virtual home tour.

Here's what I've learned so far...

1.  There's only *one* light in our town.

2.  Only *two* cable companies come out our way...and both of them have come to our house.  However, we still don't have cable because of all the trees in our front and back yard.  One company is coming again on Monday to possibly give us cable.  We can't drill a hole into the yard, which is the main problem.  We did get Netflix and have been watching "Saved by the Bell" and movies though.

3.  Everybody knows everybody.

4.  Everybody is really friendly.  So far we have met two people at this cutsey little antique market {which I will be at A LOT!}  We were invited to an auction that happens every other Saturday; and to church!
We bought that welcome to our home sign for our house!

5.  Everything closes early for the weekend.

6.  You can't take a shower while running the dishwasher or washing machine-- or else you'll end up freezing cold in the shower.

7.  Louella Mae has hiding spots that I still haven't found yet.

8.  People live a quiet, 'slower' way of life 'round here...which is different from fast-paced Birmingham!

9.  If you're "going to town" plan to stay for awhile because when you have to go "to town" you have to drive at least 30 minutes to do pretty much anything.

10.  People like to use the backdoor instead of the front door.  I'm not sure why, but the mail lady and a neighbor that came to introduce himself both used the back door. 

And that is what I've learned so far living out here...out in the country...and I think I might like it that way.
