When I woke up on Sunday, Feb. 10th, it was 6:30 and Bill had just nicely risen, I think. I rolled over for another half hour of shut eye but it was merely a rest. I remained awake. I got up at 7 and joined Bill downstairs while he drank his coffee. He began filling our pill cases and I chuckled, thinking ‘we’ve turned into our parents’. Not really, we only take daily vitamins.

I had a blog post to finish so worked at that and then around 8 I went for my walk. Nothing exciting to report today, it was later and I didn’t get the pretty sunrise photos that I’m used to seeing. The good news is that the sky was clear and we were in for a sunny day. With a forecast of some 6 to 12 mph winds and a high of 65F/19C, we were in for a pretty nice day. It started out calm and I had a nice walk. I didn't get a picture but I saw a new sign "I make wine disappear, what's your magic trick?"

After getting back and making breakfast, we walked over to visit Rob and Pat for a 'chat'. Every time we mention a ‘chat’ to Pat, she starts wondering what we’re up to. I guess we need to word it differently because we basically just wanted to re-touch on our route plans for heading home. Things have changed over the last few days from a week ago. We pinned a few more ‘possibles’ on our calendars and some were changed into ‘probables’ with ‘definites’ still hanging in the balance.

Back home, I set about making up Jell-o dishes and did a bit of crocheting. Bill and Rob took a drive to the Yuma Airmodelers air field for a couple of hours. They enjoyed some great planes and even better flyers. Bill said Rob really enjoyed the entertainment. At 1:30 I took a walk up to the pool since I hadn’t been in for a few days. The pool area was packed but I found an empty lounge chair and settled back near the seating area, facing the sun.

The water is so warm but alone, I just swam around for about 10 minutes before getting out and stretching out on the chair. The wind gave me the chills but the sun was so nice. At 2:00, I flipped over to dry the backside of my suit and I got a text from Ken and Kim saying they were in the area. “Yes, come for a visit!". At 2:30 I was dry enough to walk back home. They arrived a few minutes later.

It was so nice to see them! We set chairs out on the west side of the Suite and all 6 of us enjoyed a good couple of hours. I guess it turned into Happy Hour, really our first real outdoor one since we’ve arrived here. They said goodbye around 5 with promises to see them either tomorrow night at Pilot Knob or at least on Wednesday. What a nice couple they are, we are all so glad to have made their acquaintance this winter.

We’d decided on a simpler supper than originally planned mainly because the pork tenderloin was not completely thawed. Poor planning there. So, instead we turned the switch on to electric power and I preheated the air fryer for fries and pork meatballs. At 5:30, things began to cook. Rob popped over with a couple of chicken wings that Pat had cooked in their air fryer. They were very hot (to the touch) but they were very good!

Supper was ready shortly after 6 and Bill gave the fries a thumbs up. Woops, forgot the picture! We were hungry. The meatballs were good too and we had a nice easy clean up. We shared a couple of meatballs with our neighbours. 😊 After dishes, I focused on finishing my blog so I could either sit and crochet or read before I got too tired. It was a nice day today in the sun, some at the pool and some at home.

There is nothing on tv worth watching tonight again, so we spent a quiet night together. I hope you had a good day. Thank you for the visit today.
