Miss Jessie however, is still fast asleep on the couch. She is such a sweet girl, not at all your typical Jack Russell. She's fifteen going on three the way she jumps for treats!
My first look every morning is to the dove nest. Yesterday I spied with my little eye THREE eyes! There are TWO babies along with mom instead of just one. During the day, Mom goes out for longer and longer breaks while the kids test the limits of the nest building by perching on the very edge.
So far they have been able to hang in there. Dove's are terrible at nest building, using too few sticks that are way too big. I'm sure they will be flying away soon!!
Around noon I had another visitor. Another beauty of the desert. It's so weird to me because I've only seen deer in the high mountains or on the coast. It never even crossed my mind that there might be deer in the desert!! Magnificent ones at that. This one is much lighter in color than the last few.
BEEP ... beep ... clip ... (shhhh). At long last I got up the nerve to clip the wires for the CO2 detector. I wish I had taken some kind of electrician class somewhere along the way. It sure seems like it would come in handy. I called Lazydays to see if the tow hitch wiring had come in and added a monitor to the list.
Yes the parts came in, but now I can't get an appointment to have it fixed until Wednesday. I should have just done THAT work myself! My buddy Zach said they had these in stock. We shall see!! I also think I could find one at Camping World, but they aren't exactly my favorite store.
I made one last exciting trip to town to find lithium AA batteries. I've got a new project I'll tell you about tomorrow. So far it's resulted in pricks, sticks and pokes, along with debris caught up in my hair. Sounds fun, right?
The sun was weird as it set in the sky amid white/grey clouds. It almost looks like smoke!
WAIT!! ............ there was another critter at the water station!!!! It's just so different in the desert this year. I've never seen so many birds of all kinds, nor so many deer in the years I've been here. It's an epic year for the animals. Right up my alley!
