Thanks to everyone following this blog. There’s so much going on in my life right now that it’s been hard to write a post. I promise I’ll post a longer “what’s going on in the desert” story soon.
In a nutshell, I’ve been neck-deep in boxes in my garage still preparing to move at some point. This is a long story. There’s a lot to go through and dispose of – some things I’m not ready to do that with yet, posing another problem.
The house being built two lots down is really progressing at a fast rate now. I suspect the owners want to move in before school starts in the fall. The beautiful front door arrived the last time we did a walk through one evening. We’re going back there again tomorrow, after the workers leave, to take another look before they start locking up the house.
Koki’s favorite lizard was breakfast the other day for a passing roadrunner. She’s rather down over that. I’ll write more about this later and post pictures. This is a story by itself. We get such a first hand look at nature here and some of it’s brutal.
Tootie’e eye is starting to look normal again, although not quite as bright, but we’re still doctoring it once a day – more on that later.
Raven’s growing fast and is almost eight months old now. He started choking tonight and my husband calls me to say the cat has asthma. What? I would hope not. That’s all I need to deal with right now. I administered petromalt and we’ll see if that does the trick.
There are issues to deal with every time you turn around that I have to add to the list of things to do before we can sell this house. Most things are minor, but it’s still another task and annoyance.
The heat is getting to both of us, although we have had bit of a break the last three days with it being only in the upper 90’s. By next week, we’ll be around 108. Running a fan in the garage does help with all that work, but you still sweat like a pig out there all day and come in exhausted and still having to get dinner together and then clean the kitchen up. I think I could sleep a week.
I’ll post in a couple of days as soon as I can download some pictures.
