If you were here, you would hear me taking deep breaths constantly. That's my way of trying to JUST RELAX. My brain works overtime trying to remember everything. I try to fake it for Cooper's sake. The more I stress out, the more nervous HE gets.
I've been distracted from packing every morning by the fabulous sunrises ... but on THIS day, the clouds came down like a curtain and there were no bows on stage for Mother Nature. It was a dark gloomy morning.
An hour or so later I look outside to see a nice blue sky. It's weird how the clouds hung on the mountain tops all day long. In no time the clouds were back making for a gloomy day.
I probably haul more for the dogs than I do me! On one of my trips outside I spotted several of these guys. It appears they are a black throated sparrow. I haven't seen them much in the past, but they are here in numbers this spring. Tiny little guys ... maybe only 2-3 inches tall.
Pretty boy ... disco disco and here kitty kitty kitty were the words of the night. They tend to talk a lot just before the sun goes down ... then they become quiet as a mouse so predators don't know they are there. No one wants to be a midnight snack.
With most everything packed that I could at that point, I even got out to mow the lawn. Mow the weeds would be more appropriate. That weed and feed stuff I bought doesn't seem to be working one little bit. This I always do just before I leave because if I don't, Mr. Chance comes over and does it to be sure there aren't any tigers hiding in the dandelions. I could feed a grizzly bear there are so many tasty dandelion morsels here.
Today will begin the house prep ... there's a lot to do when you leave a house ... before I take off to visit with Deb and Tom who have arrived in Tucson despite the bad weather and potholes big enough to lose your tow car. Although Arizona does fix their roads, kinda sorta, it's based on travel patterns. If you drive the back roads, hold on to your teeth.
I'll be heading out in the morning to big Q town.
