HI NIcolelynn, YES i'm finally here, just arrived wednesday! WHEW is it hot here!...I'm in palm desert too
WEnt to the living desert in may when we came to scope everything out..NOT impressed!!!!!!! THe conditions that some of the animals were in, is awful!!!! I'm NOT a "zoo" type person, and honestly wouldn't have gone if i thought it was like that, but the locals said it was like safari, and I spose for some of the bigger animals yes, kinda...but the vultures and smaller creatures were kept in enclosures the size of my living room!!!!! NOT COOL.
WHats jadabug?????? What EXACTLY is Joshua tree.... i thought it was a state park.... is it not?
I'm also looking for good open or indoor farmers markets to score some reasonably priced local/org. produce......went to the one at COD but the produce venders aren't there yet ;-(
SProuts and the local grocers that i have been too are "meh" for prices, comparable to NJ, i'd say. Was hoping since it IS cali, that i would be able to find better prices ;-( ALso looking for a local farm to pick up some org. meats and eggs, maybe even some raw dairy. Got any suggestions?
BUT, other than that, it's awesome here, i'm thoroughly enjoying having a pool, seeing baby geckos in the house, and watching the local fauna. Not to mention watching my own parrots flying in the cathedral ceilings! I can't wait til the weather simmers down then i can explore the area more on foot.
DS starts school on monday and I have to get him some uniforms, this will be new for us too, but i'm looking forward to less (maybe) laundry?...lol
