A few nights ago Dan wasn't home and I was out with our dog Marley collecting stone in our arroyo. I was singing songs and I got a weird feeling that I was being watched. I told Marley it was time to go home as it was getting dark. I let her stay outside on our patio. She started barking. I went outside and looked around and listened and I heard footsteps in the desert brush around us. It was dark and I couldn't see much. We went inside the house. I turned on the light and kept it on for a long time. Dan came home and I fell asleep. I told Dan about it a few days later.
Last night we heard some screeching from a mountain lion. We stood in the house listening for sounds. We could hear it breathing really loud. It sounded really big. After awhile it took off and I went to sleep. I'm going to have the camera ready tonight if it comes back.
Dan is almost done with the solar panels. We're excited to hook them up and give our house the extra boost of power that it needs.
