… not in my yard, though, I went to the Bi-County Fair. (That’s McKinley & Cibola counties, for all y’all playing along at home.) Continue reading this time it’s poultry
I’ve spent most of the week working on what I’m calling ‘tinker’s wagon infrastructure’, or stuff that’s gonna make the build easier — from buying a bench vise to making cutting guides specifically tailored to work with my roommate’s circular saw, thus allowing me, for the first time in my life, to cut wood, or indeed anything, in a straight line.
But more about that next week! Due to circular saw issues, I spent the latter part of last week on another task I’ve been putting off, that of Making My Space Pretty.
Above you’ll see the purple shelf I finally got hung up, & gorgeously adorned with pretty things. It’s above my desk, so that I can look up & see it there.
No cat pictures this week, because this time it’s cows. I … don’t even know.
I’ve been heaving hoofbeats at night every once in a while, but I’d figured it was the horses until one night I heard someone moo. I mean sometimes it’s still horses, but apparently sometimes it is, also, cows.
They were still around the next morning, so I got you a picture of cow butt.
Plus other cow pictures, but. Cow butt.
Or, ‘how I made a lovely custom mobile with crap someone else found in their back yard’. Continue reading Duck stick!
I really _do_ love New Mexico. It’s GORGEOUS.

But I mean. HORSES. I didn’t think y’all would mind. Continue reading again with the horses
There’s an abandoned house down the street, right across from the mailboxes.
(Okay, there are a LOT of abandoned houses around here, but this one is VERY VISIBLY abandoned.) Continue reading unabashed looting
There are only two cat pictures this week, but what with one thing & another I don’t feel bad about that. Continue reading surprise horses
or, what to do when you’re stuck behind a train, like graffiti, & have a camera.
I was having a REALLY rough day Saturday, so my ‘run into town to ship a couple packages’ jaunt turned into ‘also accidentally drive to Crownpoint, do half the week’s grocery shopping, & find a really pretty canyon to almost fall into on the way home’ trip.
As you do.
(I did not, in fact, fall into the canyon, but I did climb through barbed wire twice, so there’s my store of bad ideas for the week.)
I found pretty flowers:
Also this cool plant that grew — flowers? Fruits? I do not know!
Some really excellent lichen.
Also Bones of Long-Dead Creatures in a more literal sense than usual.
