Michael was raking cactus droppings away from our walking path and out of the sand came this guy, he was probably about a foot long. We have cactus wrens building a nest right outside our kitchen window—this will be fun to watch and maybe a little noisy!
Last Saturday I wrote “…started a rug making project—Michael built the loom a couple years ago….”, well yesterday I quit, finding the process to be incredibly boring. The loom is just a rectangle with small nails for looping strips of fabric around eventually making a rag rug—and eventually is the key word here!
We were in Wickenburg not long ago and for some reason went to the Basha Supermarket instead of the Safeway. I was looking for honey—every container I chose was labeled “from Argentina,” or “from China,” I kid you not! So, it was taking me a while to find US honey—these two older ladies came down the aisle, pointed to a jar and said, “that’s real good honey!!” And I said, “but it is made in Argentina!!” They absolutely could not believe that until I showed the ladies the label. Well, then they began pointing out other honey until I was ready to just take ANY jar—I chose a smallish container and one of the ladies said, “WHY DO YOU WANT TO GET SUCH A SMALL CONTAINER!!!” Geez, can’t a person just shop for groceries on their own????? The cowboy and I had quite the chuckle over my helpers in the grocery store!
It was another cool and rainy day in the AZ desert. Michael is coming down with a bug of some sort so he stuck close to home, I visited with Larry and Geri a bit then walked across to get a bundt pan from Jim and Ellie. There is a cream cheese pound cake cooling on the counter—Larry wore me down and I had to make him one just so he would be quiet!!!
