Here we go again

Giving the blog another shot. Life's made some changes in the past year and good ones at that. Listed our house for sale, it sold to a wonderful couple that will be great caretakers. We moved to our new community in SW Minnesota that we absolutely love and say it out loud several times a week. We both have new jobs that are going great. It sounds just too nice right? I know! I keep waiting for the hammer to fall but apparently we keep seeing the positives around us and maybe the hammers falling, we just don't care. Life is good.

I look forward to writing about our discoveries in this "new land" of ours. There is an abundance of good people, beautiful scenery, creative souls and great reminders that the important things in life are not things.

We've made many friends here in town and one very good friend is the city clerk. Another one of those creative souls I was talking about. Well, every month she sends out the bill for city utilities to everyone. I'm not sure why I did, probably to brighten her day at work a bit, but I started "decorating" the envelopes that contain our check and invoice stub for the monthly utility bill. It's usually a combination of a poem and some drawings. She says she's been saving them. That doesn't surprise me as she's a scrapbooker. It is expected now so it got me into a creative schedule again. At least once a month I do something creative. I hope she enjoys getting it as much as I enjoy doodling it out. This month I wrote a poem and a few doodles...thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy!
