Working, Working, Working

A week full of work, thank goodness. I’m spending a lot of time out of town, and loving every minute of it.  As I said on Side Notes, we’ve been working 10 to 12 hours a day, then heading to camp.  Once there, of course there’s  charcoal grilled steak, and baked potatoes.  Last night, I even made my stuffed jalapenos.   I use ground venison-browned, and four cheese,  shredded cheese mix, then wrap with bacon and toss it on the grill.   Umm Umm good!  Add a cold beer to the mix and we’re relaxing with the best of them.   Then it’s off to the fishing pond for a little fun.

 

One other nice thing about working out there is the scenery.   Possum Kingdom, where we’re working has some beautiful deer.  We saw this guy on our way into the job site.  He just stood there for the longest, letting us take pictures.  Then three more came out, all smaller than him.  It was quite the bachelor group.  We also saw twelve doe in a different

place.   When he decided to leave, he just  moseyed off, not a care in the world.   He doesn’t seem to be worried at all about a truck sitting on the road only 30 feet from him with some dam fool hanging out the window, taking pictures with a cell phone.

 

The only bad thing about working out there, is I don’t have the time to deal with my writing.  I am still working on the next piece of Friday’s Fantasy, I’m just not happy with it yet.  Hopefully I’ll be able to get it all straightened out and posted this Friday.

OMG!!! What a beautiful buck! Doesn't it seem like they know when hunting season is over. LOL

But lordy, what an amazing recipe for stuffed jalapenos! I can't wait to try that!

Yeah, he knew he was in a place where theres no hunting. Safe and sound not a worry in the world. He was a brute, but I think he's only a three or four year old.

You should try the jalapeños, I could try to figure out a way to send you some ground venison. ;)

That is just something I don't see here in the desert, we have tons of lizards, snakes, scorpions, but haven't seen any real wildlife like Deer or tree's like that since back east days.

I can think of worse places to work and even worse places to go "home" to when work is done. Now pass those poppers please.

Now I so very badly want to go camping. Or fishing. Or just to hike in the mountains. Sigh.

It is fun seeing the wildlife. We have our fair share of snakes though too. 8-)

Hey Mark, Yep those poppers were pretty darn good, LOL. I can think of many places that would be worse to work in. 8-)
