I’ve moved a few car loads of stuff to the cabin now, and am excited. Not only by the move, but by the LACK of moving. I truly won’t need to move more than another 3-5 carloads, if that. Depending on exactly what I decide to keep, of course. A rocking chair, a book case, a table (maybe), a quilt rack (that’s very debatable), a Christmas tree (probably not), and the free closet organizer since it can be taken apart…

Three weeks ago I met someone who encouraged me to apply for a job. I did, and have already had a prescreening and an interview. There are other positions coming up as well. I’ll know in two weeks. And I’m excited-the staff seem friendly and professional, they work as a team, the office was clean and neat, and there would be someone available to train me. They reminded me in the interview that it was “entry level” and that I’m overqualified. I told them that frankly, I didn’t care. I’m not looking for status, just stability. And a way to move to my two acres and still have time for cats and maybe some chickens. The job would suit me very well, and if what I saw in my interview is any indication, I’d enjoy not only the cabin but the workplace as well. Now if I can just get utilities run and still save those tadpoles…


About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? Baptism!
