I'm baaack!

Greetings from sunny New Mexico! We are all moved, and settled in. We will be here for about a year and then DH is done in the Army and we get to move home. YAY! But, for now, we are enjoying our time here. The people here are friendly. Although I can do without the "wild life" as I like to call it. On the way down here I saw a tarantula crossing the road (it was about 50 miles from here), and on our second night in our house I found a scorpion. yuck! We have killed lots of bugs, and spiders. We even had a black widow hanging by our front door (luckily it was outside). It was being chased by a vinegaroon which is a cross between a scorpion and a spider. Yucky! DH killed the black widow and caught the vinegaroon and put it in the field across the street from our house. I am scared to death of this type of "wild life" so this is going to be an interesting year. So far I'm handling it o.k. No snakes so far, but we are told they are around.

Anyhow, enough yuckiness. We just got our internet up and running today so this is the first chance I have to post anything. I have been busy unpacking and getting us settled in, but I am happy to report that I am done! well, at least as done as I can be right now. We left some of our furniture behind in KS so we have to get a few things before I can finish unpacking, but that will have to wait till we have money. So for now I am done with that. I don't have any projects to share with you, although I am working on some, just not done yet. But I do have some photos to share.
This first photo is the outside of our house. I took it from across the street, they are doing construction around us.

This one is a view of our back yard. It is HUGE! It is actually bigger then it looks even in the pictures. Needless to say the dog loves it! You can kind of see off to the right, our back patio is covered with a nice pergola.

Here is a view of our living room, it's huge (the photo only shows about 3/4 of it). Anyone actually doubt that my living room would be purple and green? LOL

I have a few pics of my favorite room, which is my craft room. *grin* (a RAK to the first person who can tell me what movie I'm watching, lol, didn't mean to get the TV in the picture)

Another view of the craft room.

And the third and final view of my craft room. I'm going to have some fun creating in this room. Although I can't wait to get back to Utah, and buy a house so I can actually decorate my craft room, but for now, I'm just thrilled I have a craft room and not a nook in my bedroom.

And this final photo I have for you, is one I took yesterday at White Sands National Monument. My cousin Shelly was here visiting for a couple of days. Her boyfriend just got stationed down here as well, so she came to see him. (Small world, he is actually in DH's unit, and for now is even in his company.) Anyhow, we all went to WSNM last night, and got there just before the sunset. It was so pretty! The sand there is so white and so soft and beautiful, we got to walk up into the dunes (there were some pretty tall and steep dunes there) and I took this shot looking out over the dunes, and towards the mountains. Boy it's good to see mountains again. Enjoy!

Till next time.... I hope to have some of my projects done soon.

Glad you made it safe. Looks like you've been busy. I don't envy your wild life. I think the most I can complain for Enoch is that our traffic jams are caused by sheep.

Your place looks nice.

Soooo... when are you coming to visit??? Miss you lots. :(

Wowsers Sharon! You have been a very busy beaver! I love the cards you're making-very nice form.

The pictures of WHNM were totally awesome-thanks for sharing.

I read about the vinegroon-I don't care how docile and innocent they are; I don't care how many annoying crickets they eat-they are scary to look at. I am definitely not letting one tickle the palm of my hand. What did Sirius think about it? If I were him, I'd turn tail and run!
