In June 2009 I bought a foreclosure property on 5 acres in the small, gold country town of Mokelumne Hill, CA. Since then I have done a lot of things to the house and the yard trying to figure out a way to live there permanently. The town's main street is almost the same as it was in the mid-1800's and the Hotel Leger was featured on "Hotel Impossible". The people are mostly bay area refugees and very welcoming. They all love this little town and I am beginning to see why..

Someone Stole My Pumpkin! Oct 22nd 2011
Moraga -Yesterday afternoon, just after posting on my blog about the only pumpkin I was able to get from that big 100ft of vine, it was stolen from the bench it was sitting on. I noticed it was gone when I went out to walk Casey. Nick has posted it on facebook too because he was going to carve it today and now he is disappointed as well. My next door neighbor has 2 ordinary pumpkins sitting outside her garage but they didn't take hers! Sniff...
RIP - 2011 1st Hill House pumpkin
In better news - Nick has a "try-out" this week for a job at the Orinda Country Club working on the golf course. He has 2 shifts and if he does good they will hire him on permanently. Please pray for him to get this because it would make a huge difference in his life. He has been looking for work for months and hasn't had any luck so he is really excited about this opportunity.
