Another mini staycation--I am house and dog sitting in the somewhat cooler Prescott Valley for the next 10 days. The temperature here today was 98 degrees, as opposed to the 114 down in the valley! I brought my camera but was disappointed when I found out the home owner's computer wouldn't accept my camera card! I didn't think to take along the camera's USB cable, so I've posted a photo I had stored in drafts.
I will be going home for a day for a birthday party, and hopefully, I will have my camera set up and ready when I return, so that I can get photos of Shelby, an Australian Shepard and lab mix who is 19 years old, as well as the abundant wild life. The home owner's backs up to an unfenced wash that allows javelina, rabbits, etc. to come and go at will. Shelby is somewhat blind and deaf, but still takes a nightly walk, has only lost 2 back teeth, so her appetite is good.
So far it has been a very easy job! Sat will be a busy day attending a combined birthday party for three in my family! I won't feel like driving back up after eating a gourmet dinner at my daughter's home and at least 3 homemade deserts! On Monday I plan to start my 84th diet! Wish me luck! Actually I need more than luck. I need a kick in the butt!
