I had a busy day yesterday, I spent a lot of time on my feet. The 5 o’clock whistle never sounded so good. I made myself a steaming cup of coffee and headed outside to torch our camp stove. As the sun slid into the west, I noticed an outrageous display of color over my nopalito bed.
Lately I feel life is moving way too fast. I have to grab it by the seat of the pants and make it slow down.
It’s like eating – ever notice you are bolting your food, you can’t even taste it? Time to slow down.
I put my knees right up to the door, my close friend and constant companion Arthur Itis likes to stand with his butt right up against the box. I try to keep the dogs away but they want some too – Biscuit actually had her tail in the ashes the other night!
But we had another visitor last night.
He didn’t seem to mind us pointing a flashlight at him to get a few snapshots.
It made me kind of nervous the way he kept looking down at Badges, like a quick meal. We were relieved when he suddenly disappeared. I mean, one second he was there, and the next he was gone. I felt very lucky not to be a little mouse or a bat.
I had cooked all day, so my husband decided we should get some take out for dinner. We sat by the fire and ate our meal out of paper containers and hit the sack early.
