I got recruited to help at the PeFo booth at Route 66 Days on Saturday in Holbrook!
Bringing rocks, although I just found out the early breakfast is sponsored by Hashknife Posse. Not precisely the same guys I know, but .... Just rocks....
Got out a little later than expected and I will be only posting photos from the phone, because I forgot the loader for the camera card. May take a while.. but GREAT FUN ALREADY!!
The other casita is at an angle. The kitchen is bigger and the view out the door is pretty spectacular. I No protective wall and top to bottom view of that hill (the one the deer were wandering) and only the neighbor and road are hidden from view!
I immediately re-arranged it.
I was not facing the sunrise when I woke. The cat might have been confused. I can look at walls at home. I moved the desk against the wall and maybe shoved the bed a bit into the corner, but makes the room very spacious.
I also met my neighbor. I told her I had valued my solitude and she was welcome to talk the me, but I would let her be, so she could have it all to herself.... then proceeded to move furniture, drop things, talk to the cat and pretty much be noisy. I just realized I talk to myself ALL THE TIME!
The bathroom is even cool! It has a smaller tub and the same size water heater, so I am able to fill it warm! Not that I am as excited about a HOT bath, as the casita had windows open and was 86 when I got there! I know the nights are cooler. That is what I am most looking forward to: Silence and dark. Wind blows most days and it is calmer at night... or it was when I was here!
Ran across the street for my ice cream and then I had to head over here (yes, the old visitor center) to find out what I am doing tomorrow. The rumor is to meet at the Adamana exit at 7:30. I CAN SO DO THAT!
Wanna know the best of the best of it all???
There was a Tony Hillerman book in the desk for me!!! I may be too tired to read, and THIS time I know what to do with all my spare time, but JUST FOR ME!!!
I am in heaven for a few more days...
Since there's no Wi-fi anyway, and data is a bit more reliable in the Casita and Wi-Fi at The Visitor Center, (where I saw a moth that was easily four inches wide)
Is though the thing has found the outdoors very entertaining. He managed to squeeze through a rip in the screen. This one is not nearly as well put together as the other one. So I noticed out of the corner of my eye he was in the window and then kind of not in the window. Never quite figured out where he went but it was in the other room and I had gone outside to watch the Sun go down. When I went in I couldn't find him, and that's when I noticed that although it was somewhat small, there was a tear in my screen with lots of fur around it. No cat. I found him on the other side of the house. I had been outside the whole time. He just didn't come around that side.
I was rewarded with a pretty spectacular Sunset, which I usually get! However this one was from the other side of the building. And I was lucky to have witnessed my second full moon! This is it rising over the old place...
