This morning I woke with an odd feeling. As I got dressed I had the strange sensation I was being watched.
Sure enough 5 sets of eyes were staring at me.
A family of deer stood perfectly still watching. As I aimed the camera they took off. A family of five tromped across my yard as calm as could be.

This morning I awoken happy to finally have my washing machine repaired and looking forward to washing clothes.
Clothes are in the machine and will soon need a place to dry. You may remember how the line broke leaving all my wet clothes in the dirt.
So I climb the mesquite tree and start tying on the line. Bees are very curious and distracted me enough I fell out of the tree my knee connecting with a hard rock. I am fine a bruse and a bit of stiffness. All I could think of was Keith richards..being a sensible woman i ran inside to hopefully find I only channeled falling out of a tree not his petrified looks. Assuring myself all was well I checked my knee a small scrape some swelling but not bad at all. I covered it with frankincense oil and ice.
The morning progressed clothes were hung to dry and I drive to the mail box where I open a warrent for my arrest from another state. My name was not correct but just as people interchange jack, jon, john, Juan it still needed to be investigated. I called the justice department who after asking for birthday and other personal information assured me it was not me and they would remove my address from the warrent.
Well it’s just another day in the high desert.

Sometimes despite how you hurt you just need to pull up your chaps, strap on your gun, and get back in the saddle.
You never know when that horse can turn into a unicorn.

Like everyone after a long trip I needed to wash clothes. Loaded up my brand new washer turned it on and water out every seam none in the tub.
No problem move all the clothes to Lil Adorable wash and rinse. Hang on the line go in for the last shirt. Clothesline broke all the clothes are in the dirt. No problem again. Spray them off with the hose and hang off the plastic laundry basket. Go out to check laundry and swarms of killer bees loving my laundry.
NOW THAT’S A PROBLEM.

Standing on the studio roof taking a photo of Mexico.
So how did I get here? First understand I an afraid of heights. A month ago I put the extention ladder against the studio. 3 days ago I climbed the ladder and looked over the roof.
Today I climbed the ladder walked around, checked what needed to be repaired, emptied a puddle. And fought the urge the run. Almost had a panic attack stepping back on to ladder to climb down. But simply inhaled and put my foot on the top rung.
Climbed back up with the supplies I need to repair roof.
The big black square is one repair I made. Did two more then the wind kicked up so I finished and climbed down. I am very proud of myself. Yes, I flipp’n rock.

This morning while working in the yard I lost a simple braclet I always wore. By the time I realized it was gone I dug 5 holes, planted 3 metal poles and one tree, weed wacked and watered . No luck finding it. This afternoon as I racked by the clothes line I found $5, all chrisp, clean and folded as I aways do.
Eb and flow, give and take, karma, lost and found. All is good.

Some mornings you just don’t feel like putting your gun on. Cold wet dark days.
Then you make friends in the most unexpected places…..
Yes, a kind word and a cup of tea. And I came home with a beautiful pink teapot and a glass elephant with a broken trunk.
Of course my clean laundry.
I’m not sure how life works but it just seems to fall into place exactly as it should.
Probably should say something deep and philisophical but I’m afraid to ruin the flow.
