Its almost a new year. 2012. And when I read the book 1984 I thought that was a long ways away! Wow! 2012! We are gearing up for a low key New Years Eve fireside gathering, conversation, food, laughter, whatever. We sat around the fire pit last night. Dan built a great fire. It was actually not too bad out weather wise. Its warming up a little during both the night and day. It would have been a perfect night to sit and watch a meteor shower...........There were only three rigs here besides us. Now there are 5 more. We are becoming a neighborhood. I'm thinking that a couple more rigs will be pulling in for our gathering. Poor Bella was totally puzzled by all the RVs and dogs. She checked them all out VERY carefully from a distance, and then when she felt somewhat comfortable, off we went in the opposite direction to go walking/playing/critter hunting/bird chasing.........I've put a couple of pictures on here of the sunset reflecting back towards the northeast across the desert. The colors were great. The dirt looks so red and its really light brown. The few clouds in the sky always makes for a great sunset. On my "to do" list is to head into Quartzsite and get a couple things I need to make a pasta salad and spinach dip for our New Years Eve gathering. Always good to have munchies.
