The Lot!  Today we finally got the call we had been waiting on.  We have been eyeing this lot since we moved here but it wasn't technically for sell.  We contacted the owners of this development about 2 months ago to see if they would be willing to sell it and today they finally called back and said they would.  We were going to give them until the end of the week to contact us and then we were going to move on to the lots we found in town.  This neighborhood is in the country.  The lots are big and they have good standards as to what you can and can not do.  It is beautiful and peaceful.  We still have to work out the details of the lot as far as how big it will be (approx. 2-3 acres) and figure up the price.  We kind of have an idea as to how much it will be based on what the other lots have sold for but we don't have an exact price.  I am just happy that we have finally picked out something.  I never would have guessed that it would be this hard but when you are building a house you plan on staying in forever you want to make sure you put it in a nice area.  I think we will be really happy here.  (aside form the snakes...ewwww!)

We had a nice quite Saturday.  We went and had lunch at a little Mexican food restaurant in town.  It was FABULOUS!  Seriously some of the best food I have had in a long time.  It reminded me of the place I used to work at in Bronte.  I don't know why we haven't tried this place until now other than the fact that we just don't eat out much here.  After lunch we went and did a little shopping in downtown Albany.  They have such neat little stores in this town.
The kids played outside this evening and I worked on editing a photo shoot that I need to have done by tomorrow.   I just ran into one problem after another and still don't have it worked out.  It is amazing how complicated editing can be.  I will probably be working on them most of the day tomorrow.

Looking South from the front part of our lot.  There are houses along this road on 1-5 acre tracts.

(The picture at the top of the page is looking NE to our lot.  It is on a corner.  The side street is a culdesac and the other street leads to 2 houses on the top of the hill.  There will be no more development because they don't want it to get too busy out there.  We love that.)
