Pilot Knob RV Resort, Winterhaven, CA
On Monday, Feb. 3rd we were making an appearance downstairs at 6:30. With another batch of shingles that appeared late yesterday afternoon, I was slow moving this morning. First full day is painful but I applied my cream, took a pill and I left Bill at home and went out for a brisk walk. Don’t focus on it, I tell myself, and it isn’t such a big deal.

I say, "Yes!" it makes my day to see the sun come up

We left the house around 8:30 after getting cleaned up for the day. The weather people got it right when they forecast cooler weather. It has arrived and after sleeping through with no heat last night, Bill had turned our heat pump up enough to take the chill off the Suite. It was 57F outside and 64F inside. The problem was the wind. It was gusting between 14 – 20 mph. and we were happy to have chosen our jackets before we left home.

hopefully only for one more day
Today, we drove to pick Keith up and headed to Los Algodones for Bill’s 9 o’clock dental appointment. The endodontist was finishing his root canal now that the abscessed area had healed. Keith and I left him in the waiting room and we walked around the vendors. It was cool out there and every so often the gusts of wind would have me closing my eyes, even behind my glasses, to prevent the sand from getting in.
I had a mission and with Keith’s help, I was successful in getting grandchildren’s gifts before we headed back to meet up with Bill. His appointment was delayed by a surgery that Dr. Hernandez had to tend to prior to 9 am but other than that, Bill came out smiling and happy with the results. He will be going back tomorrow for a root canal on the tooth right beside it. Not something I envy at all. Keith and I are prepared to wander the streets again and I appreciate the company while we wait.

Back in Arizona, we went to Sam’s Club for coffee, bacon and a couple of other items and then to Hobby Lobby so Bill could pick up the paint he needs to finish his model car. While in there, I checked out the wool, 30% off, and came out with 3 balls for a new project. When we returned home, we were famished and tired out. I’d already managed to meet my steps requirement for the day and it was only 12:30!

I made us sausages and eggs for lunch and I had mine in a wrap. Ooh, that was good! We dozed in our chairs, one of us better than the other (teehee) and read our books while listening to the wind howl. At 3, I texted Kim to see if there was any interest in getting together and of course, she said yes. With the cooler air and uncomfortable winds, we were invited inside their Journey. I texted Keith and extended the invite to him as well.

Once we assembled in the coach, we called Suzie (at her request). Putting her on speaker, we all said hello and had a wonderful conversation. Her main message was that we don’t have to worry, she is doing fine. It was great to hear her uplifting voice as she moves on with her life.

Glad his isn't up in the elements today
We probably overstayed our welcome (again) but Kim and Ken didn’t seem to mind.

It was after 5:30 when we all said goodnight, parted ways and returned home for supper. I reheated our roast beef, gravy, veggies, the last potato and put some salad out. It was a filling meal and tasted very good. I love the gravy flavor! When dishes were done, I sat with this post and Bill sat to watch America’s Got Talent.
|The clouds sure took over the sky today|
We don’t always agree with the judge’s choices, but it is entertaining and now that they are down to 6 contestants, something we don’t want to miss. Bull was on next and we watched it together. This has been a full day and we have enjoyed every bit of it. I hope your day was great too.

Good night everyone!
Thank you for your visit.
