July 16 - Our two kitty cats on my bed. Sparky is black and white and is 15 and is doing fine. Pumpkin is an orange long-hair and is doing much better. (He got really, really sick in May. We thought we were going to lose him; then he got better! I wonder if he got Covid.) Pumpkin is 9.
Picture above and three pictures below: July 22 - We drove to Penasco, New Mexico to get our teeth cleaned today. We took the long way home and had coffee in this Dixon Cooperative Market in Dixon, New Mexico. And there's a cool building in the town. It was a long day. We're home now.
July 22 - I thought this was kinda cool. My sun glasses sitting on our table in Dixon, New Mexico while we were having coffee. They are reflecting the red and black umbrella above us.
July 22 - Full moon in New Mexico!
July 23 - Green shoulder bag I got yesterday at a thrift store in Dixon, New Mexico. It was only 4 bucks! It looks like leather but it's not. I like it. It had a clunky chain handle. Bert removed it and I added a black strap. It's PU Leather, which is polyurethane leather. So. Yeah. Not leather. It's vegan though! Which means plastic. I don't know what's better, vegan products that are plastic - which means more plastic in the ocean and landfills - or products made of leather. Anyway I got this used. And there are the backs of our two phones with stickers from @thespindlesisters
Picture above and four pictures below: July 26 - We went to the Taos Ski Valley today in the afternoon. This is the small river there and some condos being constructed! Lovely! We wanted to have coffee but all coffee places were closed. It was a beautiful drive up there even though it was raining on the way up and a bit while there. We did have coffee on the way home at Arroyo Seco. We live in a beautiful place! The base of the Taos Ski Valley - the Village - is at about 9200 feet elevation. We live at 7400 feet elevation. Videos of the river are on my Facebook.
August 3 - Pretty mini sunflower in our back yard. Photo by me this morning.
August 7 - Sparky and Pumpkin today. Sparky is 15 and Pumpkin is 9. They are both doing well. Last month Pumpkin was really sick; he's doing better now. He hangs out mostly in our back porch area. Sparky hangs out on my bed or other places around our tiny house.
Above and Below: August 7 - Happy Taos Pride. We attended the Taos Pride Event this evening. The band was Katy P and the Business. They were good!
August 14 - Happy Birthday to my darling daughter Erica!
August 18 - We went to Taos Plaza Live on August 12 for the first time in a couple of years; here's a photo by me. This band is Last to Know. We were going to attend again tomorrow but it has been cancelled. No more Taos Plaza Live this year. There were supposed to be two more. One tomorrow and one on the 26th. Not happening! Oh well. Stay safe everyone and if you haven't got the Covid Vaccine yet GET VACCINATED! Just sayin'.
Above: Fall of 2010. That is what "our" street looked like when we first got here in 2010. Picture below: August 25, 2021. And here's how our road looks today with our off-the-grid house. 11 years later. There's the same rock in the lower left corner that's also in the previous picture. As of today it's been 11 years since we bought our land out here in Carson Estates. Two Peaks. Northern New Mexico!
Sept. 7 - Rattlesnake munching on a mouse we saw during our walk in Carson National Forest. Some guy said it's a diamond back but I don't know. Picture by me.
September 19 - Full moon. Photo by me.
October 14 - Snow on the mountains. Pictures by me. The one on the right should be on the left and the one on the left should be on the right.
Abobe and below: October 18 - We're up at the Taos Ski Valley. Just took a walk around. That's always fun. I found someone's phone in one of the rest rooms and I found the woman it belongs to! Yay! That was nice. I felt like pictures of trees and not condos.
October 20 - New addition to the Mesa. I have no more words for this.
October 20, 2021. We got a new mini trampoline. It's outside in a little enclosure in front of our travel trailer because we have absolutely no room indoors. We'll probably cover it when the snows come.
October 22 - Smoke to the west of us and spreading to the north. I can smell the smoke if I go outside. It's supposed to be a controlled burn but it looks like it got out of control.
October 22 - Close-up of the smoke from the fire. It started yesterday. It looks to be maybe 50 miles away from us. To the west. It could be in Rio Arriba County. I can't find any mention of it. Picture by me. See my previous picture too.
October 22 - Cool clouds. Looking South.
October 31 - Lovely Happy Halloween sunrise in Taos County, New Mexico. Looking toward the Sangre de Christo mountains.
October 31 - Happy Halloween! That's me, today. I dressed up even though we are now at the Burger Stand Taos having a beer and a burger, and they had their party last night. We don't do night stuff any more
November 2 - Close-up. Beautiful sunset, facing away - east - from where the sun is setting. I removed the bus and the truck and other stuff.
November 13 - Our house with the Taos Mountain in the background.
November 13 - Our house with the Taos Mountain in the background. I cleaned it up, removed the mobile homes and stuff, and brightened it some. Just playing around.
Nov. 11 - We saw something in the sky today at 1 PM Mountain time. Here it is. I photoshopped it for clarity and it's way zoomed in. It was moving from south-east to north-west. It was kind of boxy and rectangular. It was totally silent. I got a video when it was too late and only got a dot in the blue sky. I wish I knew what it was. A satellite? An alien space craft? It was too big to be the ISS. And the ISS is too far away to be seen during the day. Anyway. This is a screenshot from a video. Like I said, it was too late to get anything but a dot in the blue sky. It wasn't a plane as it had no wings that we could see.
November 19 at about 2:30 AM. Ha ha. Picture by me of the partial lunar eclipse. See that teeny tiny white dot? That's the moon partially covered by the earth's shadow. I woke up at that time. I grabbed my digital camera. I threw on my bathrobe, slippers and a warm hat and went out. This is a screen shot from a video I made. It was freezing! I went back to bed. I didn't wake up again until 6:54 AM. At my age I'm just not going to mess around much with middle-of-the night picture taking. Especially when its freezing out there. I did see it tho.
November 12 - Alrighty then. We're still seeing #tarantulas wandering around. This one is from today. Cool huh?
November 23 - Me. At the Taos Ski Valley. We didn't buy anything, just walked around. There are restaurants, condos, hotels, stores, an ice skating rink and other stuff. Anyway, all will be open soon. Besides skiing, of course. No skiing for us though. They are making snow with machines.
November 23 - Same as above, without me, but I made many of the pictures into a collage. One of the pics to the left shows Wheeler Peak, the tallest Mountain in New Mexico. They are making snow. There were some skiers. Not many.
November 30 - Latest addition to "The Mesa" from a couple of weeks ago. And that's me and Bert. Somebody hauled this in not-too-far from us. There are some other pics of this on Facebook, on a group where I am a member, and someone said: "It is a drying unit from a lumber mill in Colorado." The owners said: "It used to be in a lumber mill burning sawdust for drying the wood. (Heat exchanger). We love how sculptural it is." It seems to be from about 100 years ago.
December 3 - Happy anniversary to us.
December 9 - Pumpkin our long hair cat. He's 9.
December 9 - Our cat Sparky. He's 15.
December 16 - I got a new phone! Actually, we both got new phones. Our old ones are going bye bye. This is mine.
December 24 - Happy Holidays all!
December 25 - We have a white Christmas! The snow is only like a quarter of an inch. I feel a little sickish today but not as bad as yesterday.
December 25. And here's another one. And there's my finger. Too bad. I'm not going back out there! It's c-o-l-d!
December 13 - Me and the adorable puppies. Not our dogs.
December 13 - Me and the adorable puppies. Not our dogs. They belong to a neighbor.
