This is where I go out on a limb and ponder a while.

Big Sky

This is all I can seem to think about these days.  We just bought a ranch.  160 acres of beautiful views in every direction.  The house sits right smack in the middle of the property on a hill.  This is the view from the deck.  When I'm there I spend a lot of time just looking at the big expanse of sky. And when I'm here at home, all I think about is the ranch and wish I was there.  I'm a bit claustrophobic and I am loving all that spaciousness.  I used to love going out west to Wyoming and Montana where I could see for miles and miles in every direction.  Never much liked the closed-in feeling of the big woods.  So now we have two properties that we're trying to take care of, and I have to say it's more work than I expected. We need to make a commitment to one or the other, I guess.  We know we want to live out at the ranch, but it's a hefty commute for my husband to make to work each day, and not such a great trade-off as far as schools for our daughter.  So, for the summer, probably just a place to knock around on the weekends.  So much fun...!
