Emilee's new home and her surrounding 5 acre desert!

Kitchen and Living Room Area


 Emilee's master


There are three other bedrooms and three full bathrooms.  She will use one of them as her office, one as a guest bedroom for visitors(family and friends) and her roommate Barb will have a master suite on the opposite side of the house with her own private entrance.
Here now please enjoy some of the surrounding views of her sanctuary.....
Front of the house.

These are beautiful and she has 4 of them and the hummingbirds love the orange flowers!

This tree is gorgeous and huge in the front yard area.

This mountain area is a preserve and a view to the NW

The past three days has been exhausting but we got ur done....

Another beautiful sunset~~~~~

As you can see from the picture below we were blessed with another gorgeous Arizona sunset last night.

But first the next few pictures are taken from inside the fiver of my hummingbird feeder.  But it isn't a hummingbird.

And here he is.....
It was another perfect night for a balloon ride to watch the sunset!

Work at the sanctuary and BBQ~~~~~

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Craig and Emilee did some yard work yesterday at the sanctuary while I stayed home and prepped for a nice Sunday evening BBQ which included my Mom's potato salad, homemade baked beans, and chips and salsa.  Along with that, we did portabella mushrooms and cheese burgers on the barby!

They were tired when they arrived back here at our spot #526 but enjoyed the meal and recap of their day.  Next Friday and Saturday the fencing goes in for the pups and the following weekend is moving day!  Emilee is getting excited about that.

We have been enjoying our stay here in Arizona and may be making some major decisions within the next few years.....more on that some other time.  HeeHee!

This morning Craig and Libby had there first run in with a rattler!!  Thankfully they warn you before striking for which they immediately turned around.  He did turn and look at it and it was almost invisible against the desert d├ęcor so that was scary!  It was about a five footer and big and fat!  Says he and Libby will be staying on the pavement from now on.  That is where Oprah, Mandie and I always stay when we do our run!

It is getting a lot warmer here so the snakes are starting to appear.  They are more afraid of us then we of them actually so we shouldn't have any other issues with them.  We have yet to see any Scorpions which is fine with me!!

Here is a picture of Libby watching all the bunnies and ground squirrels running around.  It just about kills her that she can't go get them.

Nice dinner last night with Em~~~~~

I had marinated some chicken and beef, separately of course, with peanut oil and old bay.  Threw the meat on the grill, had baked potatoes, carrot coins with brown sugar and rice wine vinegar, broccoli and mushrooms with amino, and roast beets.  Along with that a big salad with homemade ranch dressing.  She was a happy camper after working 10 hours.  Next week she starts with a new schedule with four tens and Friday, Saturday and Sunday off.  These hours really help with her new initiative -  Rusty's Angels Sanctuary plus getting the new place set up for moving in!

We headed out for groceries today as it had been a while so it was a bit of a shock! Heehee!

Now we are relaxing and watching another Arizona sunset.....beautiful!

Thinking about renting Gravity tonight.....looks like a good one!

Tomorrow we head over to the Sanctuary to look at where to discuss the plan for fencing.

I will take the camera and get some pictures for everyone to see where the wonderful and appreciated donations will be going.

Thank you all for your continued support!
