Spent the second week in October back in New Mexico and Colorado two of my favorite places in the world. Finally got to attend the annual Balloon Fiesta outside of Albuquerque and it was well worth the trip. Two of my children were able to join me, we rented a car in Denver and spent some time there with family and then had a road trip down to Albuquerque.

With the move in mind some of the things I need to gather information and learn about include:
Gardening in the High Desert
Feeding and keeping livestock in the High Desert where pasture is minimal and weather and predators can be challenging.
Straw Bale Building ( Although I don't think my home will be straw bale I dream of building a little guest house using this method).
Heritage Breeds of livestock native to the Southwest.
Trail Riding in the Southwest.
I have a vision of the life I want and a plan for how to get there now I just need to remember to not get so focused on that dream that I forget to enjoy the here and now everyday moments that come along.
