TEARS FOR BUDDHA....
The sweetest, most gentle, most loving cat, I have shared my life with for the past nine years is gone. Buddha has been missing since Friday and in the desert, 99% of the time,that means one thing.
As I told my Dear Blog buddy Lois, at Home Fires,
"That fucking Felinapause may have been the end of sweet little Buddhatootah (my nickname I have crooned at her in the stupidest voice imaginable for the past nine years.) Sarah and I have been weeping off and on, all day long. I have that nauseous- something stuck in my throat - dreadful feeling .
Please let there be a miracle!"
So much sadness here in the desert.

what Kind Of Person Are You?
life in the desert Life as an ENFP
I took this quick test at Monster.com and Finally! after 43 years. I have an answer to the question:
So, what kind of person are you?

What shape is open?
As irrigators lead water where they want, as archers make their arrows straight, as carpenters carve wood, the wise shape their minds.

The sweltering wind blew us toward the shops . There it was ..that familiar green circle,
if we could just make it to the door...
Then it hit
The vacuumesque suction of freezing air
Goose bumps spread over every inch of me
the coffee grinder
A long exhale from my daughter
I pointed to two , stuffed purple chairs
Ill get the drinks
Smiles(in perfect synchronicity)
life in the desert
Just as we slumped our over heated bodies into my our scorching car following my dd's two hour medical appointment in the 115 degree lower desert, her cell phone rang.
"What did you say summer? Well, how big is it? The highway's closed? Both Lanes?"
Turning to me, her swelling feet propped up on the dash," Both sides of the grade are closed.
(in perfect synchronicity) "Oh Nooooooooo!"
FIRE ON OUR MOUNTAIN
