Bill and I were both wide awake at 6:30 on Wednesday, Jan. 9th and getting up out of bed. For me, not surprising as I was in bed by 9:30. Bill was in bed an hour after me and that is unusually early for him. He must have been slept out too! He made his coffee and sat reading blogs while I finished mine from Tuesday. It was another mild morning around 9C and on my walk, it was one of those “every time you turn, it’s another picture moment” morning.
|I couldn't decide, now you see why|
When I returned, I made my tea and Bill had toast and jam while I had cereal and raspberries. After getting some directions from Rob for one store, we were in the truck around 9:15 to head into Yuma. Rob and Pat were also driving themselves to do some errand running around as we prepped to leave the park on Friday. It just made more sense for us each to drive and do what we needed to do individually. We both needed propane as well as diesel.
First off, we went to Ferrellgas to get propane for our small tank that we use for the Weber Q. From there we went to Hobby Lobby. Bill bought some paint for his kit and I bought some wool so I can keep in practice with my needles.
|We just walked through this store to check it out|
because it was next door to H.L.
Next it was the goodwill store so I could drop off a blanket and 2 bags of used clothing. Then a quick stop at Lowe’s so Bill could get a piece of dowel and then we found a new place, C-A-L Ranch. Here, we were just browsing but I found a new weighted water dish for Clemson for outside. One that won’t blow away in the desert winds.
|I'll be back in February to check the inside of this store :)|
The next thing on our list was Fry’s for some last-minute groceries. Beside their store was O’Reilly Auto Parts and Bill still had to find a gas can before we went into the desert. We needed to carry gas for our generator as we’d more than likely use it a few times over the next 3 weeks. While he went in there, I went and started with the grocery list. Bill had success, getting the can he wanted, and then joined me in Fry’s.
|Meet you in fry's|
|Actually, there was no line up at the fuel pumps|
for the first time
Okay, we were done and headed out of the city. We arrived home before 12 noon and we were hungry.
|I missed my breakfast quesadillas|

We could smell the ribs from next door and when we returned just before 6 they were done to perfection! Yum! We didn’t even need to brown them on the grill mat as originally planned. I had bought an Asian Sesame salad kit a week ago so we had that on the side. I won’t buy it again, neither of us liked it much. I liked the sesame and nuts the best out of the whole cabbage, kale blend. Live and learn.

Bill loaded the dishes in the washer and turned it on and soon after they left to go home and make their own supper.
|almost 6:00 and it is still warm out|
|The ribs turned out great and still juicy inside|
This was a great day! Thank you for your visit.
