I Do Love It Here

After months in the desert, one feels….dusty.  So…..

Shiloh gets a bath….


And the next day Joy gets a bath.


Too hard on my achy joints to bathe them both on the same day.

Much as they love jumping into any body of wild water, baths are barely tolerated, but getting dried off is loads of fun.

Then a few days later, Wandering Spirit gets a bath too.



After the washing a couple days later she gets a wax job…except for the top.  Right now my knees aren’t letting me go up and down the ladder multiple times like waxing the top would require.


Joy next to WS as if we were still camping.  This was taken while everyone was still dusty.

And then I bought this great big tarp and Mary helped me cover WS to protect her from sun damage.

California is in bloom right now…..

Gardens everywhere.


This is called Breath Of Heaven.  A favorite of mine. I planted one in Mary’s garden.

Yes, I do love it here!

    So glad you are getting to stay in a place you love so much! Nice to see the dogs relaxed to (even with the bath thing).

    • Hi Dawn. I think we all needed some stability. I still have no idea what’s next. For one who is always planning ahead, that feels weird. Maybe it will help me live “in the moment” more.

    Welcome back 😘.

  6. Can see why you love it there. The picture of the beautiful blue of the Bay is enough to suck me in!! Got a chuckle out of Joy laying by WS. Enjoy every bit of your stay, however long that may be.
