Just pictures of everyday living out in the desert near Quartzsite, AZ. Everyday living for us anyway. Not very exciting by some people's standards, but it suits us just fine. We, more or less, have a routine and that's fine. Bella definitely has a routine and that works good for us too. We take her outside a few times a day for walks in the desert and so she can lizard hunt, we play on our laptops, and do chores and errands when necessary. Sometimes hauling water, sometimes getting propane, sometimes getting gas for our generator, sometimes going to a grocery store, and sometimes just going out for a ride on the quad to mess around. Everyday life for us. We did have one exciting thing happen though. Below is an old picture of Bonehead's tree. While she was alive, she loved being on or around this tree. You can see a pack rat nest to the right. Well, we were coming back from a walk with Bella and if we're near the tree, we walk under it and sometimes Bella will climb it. There was about a 4' rattle snake on top of the old pack rat nest. I didn't see it as I was ahead of Dan and Bella. I walked right past it. Dan seen Bella slow down to look at it, he seen it, and she shooed Bella out of there to me. The snake slithered back into a hole of the pack rat nest. You can be sure that we won't be going to Bonehead's tree until the snake is gone. Its pretty close to our rig so we'll be making Bella go walking in the opposite direction for now. Scary stuff.
