So… We’ve officially been on American soil for one whole week! It’s already been quite an adventure and we’re getting the hang of things slowly but surely.
Farm life is the good life. The early morning comes with a variety of sights, sounds and smells. Standing on our deck outside I hear a variety of familiar and unfamiliar bird songs. Some geese (I think) far in the distance and the soft wave-like ocean sounds made from the wind through the pine trees. On our lawn a small bunny hops along, unaware of my eyes following it.
Good morning America!
Everything here is strange and wonderful all at the same time. The hubster has been working good hours the past week so the kids and I decided to be brave and pack the bull by the horns to look around and get to know our surroundings.
On Tuesday I decided to get in the car and go to town! We needed some things and the only way to get it was to actually go to the town that is just a couple of miles from us. Before getting in the car to drive on the “wrong” side (😂😂) of the road, I was pretty intimidated… But Holy Spirit reminded me that: “I can do all things through Christ Who gives me strength.” So we got in the car and we went to town!! No problems. Like I’ve been doing it forever… There were maybe two times when I turned at a stop street that I went to the left lane, but I quickly realized it was the wrong lane… 😅😅 No one got hurt during that practice run…
Grocery shopping can be a little intimidating… I have no idea about the different brands or what the food tastes like. Not to mention the cleaning products! Cleaning products are cleaning products right? Yup, until you don’t know the brands and need to read almost every label to see what it’s used for. 😂😂 I spend hours in the store trying to figure these things out, but I expected this! You can’t go to a foreign country, thinking everything is going to be the same… That’s silly!
So here’s what I’ve seen.
A variety of food and cleaning products are available, but limited, because of the small sizes of the towns. They are known as rural communities so we drive a lot to see where we can find what. It will change with time as we become more familiar with things, but for now that’s what we do. 😊
So… These are only a few of the interesting foods I found. There are more, but the hubster wants to know why I am photographing our food… 🤣🤣
Just took the last sip of my coffee creamed coffee. Back to the black and bitter for me. I’m not really a sweet coffee type of gal.
