Living in the Desert

Those who follow my blog have heard me whining over the last few months about cleaning and packing and unpacking and all of that. Moving is always stressful, and moving in seems to take forever, but we are finally getting settled into the new house and exploring the area. We’re still in the same town, but we’re in a more rural area now. The quiet and space is something we’re loving and we’ve been enjoying the wildlife even if our dog Finn still isn’t so sure about some of them running around the yard.

Living in the desert my not be super green, but the views are still gorgeous, especially the sunsets.

There are lots of interesting places to explore, although I’m slightly concerned about what might be living in some of those burrow/holes in the rocky areas…

One of the downsides of being out in a more rural is that the bugs are a little more prevalent, and apparently bigger! So gross. This spider, all curled up, was about a big as a penny, which means it was even bigger alive. I tried to push it off the porch with a stick, but I’m a chicken and had this irrational fear that it would “wake up” and come bite me, so I’m going to see if my hubby will get rid of it tonight.

Seeing more wildlife than bugs has been fun as well. We’re not totally sure where the little cottontails live, but they seem to have a warren somewhere on the property and leave lots of little droppings everywhere!

DelSheree Gladden was one of those shy, quiet kids who spent more time reading than talking. Literally. She didn't speak a single word for the first three months of preschool. Her fascination with reading led to many hours spent in the library and bookstores, and eventually to writing. She wrote her first novel when she was sixteen years old, but spent ten years rewriting it before having it published. Native to New Mexico, DelSheree and her family spent several years in Colorado for college and work before moving back home to be near family. When not writing novels, you can find DelSheree reading, painting, sewing, and working with other authors. DelSheree has several bestselling young adult series and has hit the USA Today Bestseller list twice as part of box sets. DelSheree also has contemporary romance, cozy mystery, and paranormal new adult series. Her writing is as varied as her reading interests.
