Last weekend began with me almost hitting a bobcat. He darted out from the sagebrush where I had no chance of seeing him but luckily he made it okay. That’s definitely the most exotic animal I’ve ever had the pleasure of skidding out to avoid.
One of the things I love most about the desert is how the wildlife is still abundant. I watched a roadrunner dart through the wash from my living room. Then today this rattlesnake was sunning across the road blocking our way. My least favorite wildlife of the weekend was definitely the large spider building a dense web in my pile of clean underwear. I really don’t want to think about what he was hoping to catch.
We did some thrift store shopping for our upcoming Gold Rush themed party and found this gem:
Which immediately inspired this ridiculous photo shoot:
This should tell you just how slowly the days pass in the desert. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
