Coming home...

After a nice vacation, we returned home to our animals and our place.  While out for a morning walk, I took some pictures of my incredible neighborhood. 

 This is the view from the back of my pasture, facing my neighbor's property.  They have horses and their property sits along the creek.  The colors are just beautiful on this day.

 Not as lush, here our back pasture.  We have a little over 4 acres.

 Down on the cul-de-sac, again the colors are so pretty.  This is a wonderful, little neighborhood.  We each have acreage, but still have a community atmosphere.

 We know all of our neighbors by name.  We've each lived here for quite a long time.  I can't believe it, but we have lived in our house now for 20 years!

 We've seen some families come and go, but most of us have been here for over 20 years.  Neighbors still work in their pasture and yards, take walks through the neighborhood, and stop to catch up on each other's lives.  It's as if we live in another country.  I hear about other friend's neighborhoods, where they don't even know their neighbors and sometimes never even see them.  I feel so very, very blessed.

Here is a random picture of my daughter feeding a little cria (baby alpaca) whose momma won't feed him.  We get to bottle feed every three hours.  This little guy has stolen my heart.  He gets so excited when he sees me coming with his meal!  :o)  Yep, count YOUR blessings today.  I bet you have a story to share, too.
