I was awake on Thursday, Dec. 21st at 5:30 and remained in and out of grogginess until 7 when I got up. When I opened a couple of blinds it still looked a bit dark but because we are in a park, I dressed to go for a walk. The temperature was registering 48F/9C and yet the winds weren’t too bad yet. We’d heard they were going to get nasty today.
|Looking to the east on my walk
I noticed our chairs and little tables had blown over so I stood those up and headed around the park. I can’t get over how deserted the park is. Now that it is no longer ROD, we imagine a lot of the former rv’ers who had this as their home park have pulled out. Sad, really, but for myself, I honestly don’t mind it not being jam packed full.

You can see all the vacant sites along our back fence
The rv's you see are at the blm land (free) behind the park

I came back from my walk, Bill was up and we had a tea together before he made a phone call to CanAm. He wants to get to the bottom of why our inverter isn’t working. I won’t say any more about it because Bill is writing a post today on the steps he took when he couldn’t reach anyone. Check it out at On Our Way. All I’m going to say is something I’ve said before; my sweetie is the smartest person I know.
|And the winds already are prominent
and they got much worse during the day
He hopped in the shower so we could head out at a decent time to Los Algodones, Mexico. Bill has lost a filling over the last couple of months. I bent over to pick up Clemson’s water dish to give him his refresher for the day and felt dizzy. Hmm, weird. I had a piece of date nut bread and some yogourt before getting into the shower myself. That’s when the day went to pot. And Jello was in the pot.

I'll blame the wind for my blurry picture - ha ha
Halfway through, after my hair was wet I had to crouch down and call Bill to bring me a towel. Once I dried the best I could, I crawled into bed. The rest of the day is history. The dizzy spell controlled my actions from then until 2:30 I finally was able to get downstairs to my recliner. I don’t have a definitive answer but still go back to how much water I drank the previous day. Not even ½ a bottle. Could be the culprit.

At 4:30 I was able to move enough to step outside, wave to George indicating I survived and plant myself at my laptop. Very few pictures were taken today but no one is more disappointed than I about how this day went.
|I thought it was cute to see these two little pooches in their bed
They didn't move except to watch me and not a peep
We didn’t get Bill’s tooth looked after. Thank goodness, he didn’t have an appointment or he would have been going alone. Also, my Christmas decorations did not get done this afternoon. Maybe after I have a bowl of soup, we’ll get a start at it. We’ll see. It is a quiet tv night.

Waaaayyy at the end

I've seen yet this winter
So, that day went and according to Bill, George and Suzie, with the strong cool winds, I didn’t miss much, so that certainly helps. I hope you all had a better day than I did.
Between Bill and Clemson, I was well cared for.
