Technically, this post should be called, “these weeks at the Community First! Village,” as I’ve fallen a bit behind. Here are two weeks’ worth of the neighborhood sights, sounds, and hopes.
Wandering the neighborhood with our friend and fellow missional community member, Wendy.
Discovering cochineal bugs on the local prickly pear cactus — an incredible natural dye. Can you see the purple?
More neighbors every day!
The cooler weather has the farm cats frisking up, down, in, out, and everywhere!
A cozy gathering of missional community members, learning together how to be good neighbors.
November comes home to Texas.
A new favorite fragrance combination: ripe satsuma (from my own tree!) and fresh southernwood (Artemisia abrotanum)
And this little tempest-hound, who came barking to our door in the wee hours before a weekend of terrible storms and rains. We couldn’t couldn’t be her forever home, but we were blessed to have this little stranger join our household for a few days.
