The Barn...

Candace and I moved from the place we were renting at the end of March. We had been living at her grandparent's old house south of Odon, but have now moved to a pretty little Barn a little to the west of Odon. We are renting The Barn from a lady in the church who owns the property. There is also a large pond to fish as well as a substantial wooded area to explore. It is a lovely place to call home.

 There is a little fish pond in front.
 We have a nice stoep/porch area to sit and enjoy nature.

Easter in Indiana...

Candace worked on Easter Sunday (5th April) and so I went to church on my own that morning. Later in the day we had a family supper and an Easter egg hunt for the children at Candace's grandparent's house a little north of Odon. It was a fun evening!

Eastern Garter Snake...

This little fellow kept Rusty interested as he slithered past our front door back in March. :) The Eastern Garter Snake is a common reptile here.

 This non-venomous snake sought refuge between the cement and the building.
Rusty was very excited.

Back to the blog...

It's been a while since I last posted on here. Candace and I have been incredibly busy since March ended. We've moved to a new place where we're renting just west of Odon, and the move itself and the subsequent settling-in period have kept us occupied for several weeks. Our Internet was only hooked up this past weekend and so more regular posts will start appearing again. To start things off, here is Indiana's state bird, the Northern Cardinal, as seen in the barren vegetable patch this past February. :)
