The weather was gorgeous here for a few weeks and now it’s cold again. Boo. What better way to deny the cold weather than to look at pictures from nice weather? (I think that was a question. Maybe.) I took these pictures on the 12th, when it was warm. Nice and warm. Warm warm.
After looking forward to living out west for so long, now that I’m here, it’s a smidge odd sometimes. Like…oh. That thing that I wanted for years actually happened. Now what? The answer to that question, for now, is getting re-familiarized with the area. (I still remember where most things are in relation to our address 10 years ago. From our current address…I have no idea where I am.)
And then there are things that I have to get used to again. Things like…cattle. Being driven down highways.
Also, there is a distinct lack of trees. (This blog is named for a tree that does not grow out here. If I wanted to be geographically correct I’d have to call it Juniper Hound or something.) I think the views are, you know, acceptable, even without trees everywhere.
I think this was a hawk. Of some variety. And I got a nice picture of his tush.
Last February at this time I was whining because I had nothing to talk about. This year is a major improvement so far.
Let’s see, what else…I finally got my driver’s license switched over. I bought a new coffee maker that gives me way too much joy. If only over-caffeination made a person live longer, I would live to 142. I’ve already scoped out the local thrift stores and had to be physically restrained to prevent me from buying a 1930s freestanding wardrobe.
(But it was so preeeeeetty.)
See you later!
