Yep, we bought an airstream! It’s a 1968 safari 22’ airstream. It was remodeled about 4 years ago and we decided it was the best investment in regards to any RV. Seriously, these things keep their value, thankfully we got a good deal on it.
Most importantly, Nettie loves it, since it’s going to be her little getaway. We named it Delilah, (now we can sing to her.. hey there Delilah, what’s it like in noodle (Nettie’s nickname) city 🎶 ~thank you Eli for a new version of the song. We got it set up in the back yard.
We’ve been keeping busy, last time, up in Washington, we tore down a shed, this time we moved a shed!
We’re still learning about all the different bugs in Arizona, last week we encounter a giant black flying creature with red wings in the garage. I opened the door for him to leave and he just wouldn’t fly out, finally Angel came and sent him to bug heaven. After some research, comparing pictures we found out what this guy is called.
Come to find out they actually hunt, paralyze, lay their egg, and feed off the body of a tarantula. What do you know.. a week later (yesterday) the guys called us out to the front to show us something.. it was a dead TARANTULA! Holy moly, what a wild west insect world there is here in Arizona.
Mitchs sister Cindy came for a visit and we took our first outing to the lake in Bullhead City AZ, less than an hour away.
It was over a 100 degrees the day we went but being in the water we never could’ve guessed. Side note, three applications of sunscreen in four hours and we all still got spots of sunburns.
Who’d ever think there was clear cool water in the desert. Thanks Colorado River! The area is called Lake Mohave and telephone cove. Since it so clear we plan to bring our snorkeling gear next time.
Oh, I also got updated news I’m sure you’ve been holding your breath to hear…my hairdryer has been found! It was in a box on Mitchs side of the closet! Wahoo!
As the sun sets on a another 100 plus degree day I count my blessings. I am grateful for all the things in life, including all the hurdles we’ve encountered, but especially for my sweetheart who does so much for all of us.
