Wild Things

During the 1960s, New Mexico imported some exotic animals. Nothing dangerous and I believe they were brought here to improve tourism and hunting. We have natural wild things as do most states like, bears, coyotes, wolves, mountain lions, wildcats, pronghorn antelope, ringtail cats, Javelin, lynx, bighorn sheep, and many, many more. The imports are: the ORYX,and the IBEX. We are also concerned about the jaguar that keeps creeping into our state from Mexico.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day was great around here, heard from all my kids and a few grandchildren. I have a fridge full of sweet goodies, should last a while! It was a lovely day all the way around. I don't know how I raised such considerate people.:)

We have had great weather, not really hot yet although the temps may seem like it feels hot. We only turned the cooler on twice for a short period each time. We have a canopy cover that we need to assemble but we are going to wait until we are guaranteed a calm day. The big wind we had a couple of weeks ago tore our old canopy apart. We can't really complain though, we had the old one for 12 years, lol. I think we paid $125 for it at Sears. This canopy should last as long if we can anchor it somehow.

We are enjoying this nice time of year and sure hope that everyone else is too.

Really summertime

Today will be about 90F for a high and it just delights me. Warm weather has been elusive this Spring. I do believe that it is here to stay. I love living in the desert. Low humidity, no mosquitos and clear skies, no smog. I love the clear night skies when the Milky Way is so pretty and it seems there are a gazillion stars in the sky.

Even though our weather has been a bit odd, our Spring flowers are doing just fine. My pink poppies are thriving and are spreading a little more each year. This year there was a really bumper crop. They are so pretty.:) They were a gift from my neighbor Connie who passed away last fall.

Today is Cinco de Mayo and normally I would be preparing mexican food, but not today. I am upset with the illegals and the assistance they get from the semi-legal mexicans who live on this side of the border. Oh well, things generally work themselves out.;)
