PostHeaderIcon Still in Limbo

A quick shout out to all of you. It seems like forever since I updated last and since I did we have made the jump across the ocean and are situated now in El Paso Texas. Well not exactly at this present moment because at this time we are in Nebraska to be exact.
Nevertheless, we are back and we have also settle on a house. That is why we are on vacation in Nebraska at this time.
Our future home is still occupied and the present owners are taking the time we are gone to move out so we can close on this home 7/22 and move in 7/23. Wow, I can't believe it, we are indeed back and will soon call a home our own again.

If you are familiar with El Paso you will know that it is located in the midst of a desert (If you are not check the link above). One thing I missed the most living here the two times prior (yup, this is our third time in the sun city) is GREEN!
What do you think we found on the outskirts of the city in a suburb? A little half acre oasis with flowers, roses, grass and lots of fruit trees . We are buying this home and it's the first time we are buying a home not for it's house but for the yard (don't laugh to hard).
It is able to stay that green in the middle of a desert because of it's close location to the Rio Grande and the irrigation canal that leads to the lot. We will have irrigation rights to flood the yard every two weeks which will be something completely new to us as well.

We are very much looking forward to be settled again. Now you know how I am spending my summer, would love to hear about your summer and what you have been up too.
Until we meet "bake" again!

So much exciting news...fun to hear about all of it and we will be so happy to have you in the kitchen again, baking/cooking and blogging! Best wishes on everything from travel to house occupation, etc. See you on the other side! The baking side!

I'm so happy for you to have a yard!!! An oasis in the middle of the desert. I know because I too live in an arid desert. Those trees will be heaven. I just came in from picking another two gallons of raspberries from my patch, so right now I'm not as appreciative of "green" but I know I will be in the winter when I have those lovely frozen raspberries to munch on.

We'll hope to see you soon on the HB in Five group. In the meantim, good luck with your move.

Glad to hear you've got a house! So much stress involved in moving.

Enjoy your vacation!!

I was just wondering how you are doing! Thanks so much for the update! I fell in love with our beautiful garden of our house, too!

Thanks for the great news. Enjoy your vacation and new home.

Congrats on the house. Being from Texas originally, I know what you mean about the desert. The nice thing is, Texas has about 3 other enviroments within a couple hours drive. Have a good vacation.
