And just like that I'm back in Phoenix, AZ with my beloved Pioneer. It's been 2 months without it and I'm so happy to be back. I know I know full-time RVing is associated with the retired, the seniors, the old man with a passion for barbecuing and maybe his wife and all her little dogs, and love of games like bridge and Mah-Jongg. Maybe not so much the active, still working, rock climber, vegetable loving couple in their 30's. But you know, Sean and I really never once dreamed of a house and a picket fence. We never felt comfortable in one place, where we could settle down. We don't care if we ever have a career, in fact, we prefer not to. An ideal situation for us is to work seasonally, live simply, and travel often. Play outside, see beautiful places. Eat tasty things. " A glass of wine, a crust of bread, and a view. What more could you ask for?" (Anthony Bordain said that.) I couldn't agree more.
Well we are living our dream right now. Back out west where the sky is so blue it's almost purple, and the humidity is a distant memory. It is no longer a battle between my hair, and the moisture in the air! My hair has yet to win that battle. I can't wait to find out what is next for us! I think a celebratory snack is in order.
|Black Bean Salsa with Corn Tortilla Chips|
Black bean salsa and chips. Mine has liquid smoke in it, which is a condiment I use all the time for a nice hickory flavor. It is not at all spicy, just smokey. You can find it in the bbq sauce section at the grocery store. It's around $2.
