Over The Rainbow


Our first night, sitting on the porch and eating our dinner, we saw a Western Bluebird! I have always wanted to see a Western Bluebird.

Last night I heard the owl hoot-hooting.

And who knew gopher holes were good for anything? Betty found a good pile of gopher diggings and she had the happiest dirt bath of her life. Bliss.


The gophers may decide to move out... Maria runs around the yard so much they are probably getting cave-ins and tunnel collapses!


I had better get back to packing. I love this house so much, I cannot get moved in soon enough.


It's like we are over the rainbow. And there's no place like home.

  7. soon and very soon, you'll be in your home :) all the way. Love the sounds of home don't you. As wonderful as they may be I'm sure you know that Miss Betty might attract some interest from the local wildlife.
