For some reason, Bill and I are having a very tough time, this season, dealing with the time changes. This last one especially from CT to MT. We have been going to bed much earlier than our ‘norm’ of 10 and 11 pm and therefore waking at 4 and rising at 5ish as a rule.

Last night, it was 8:30 (yes, 8:30!!) when we both went to bed and dropped right off. We were awake at 11:30 (after what felt like a full night of sleep) and then at 12:30 (almost got up to read) and then I was wide awake at 5 am on Monday, Nov. 12th. I got up. 😴 Bill seemed to have dropped off again and didn’t rise until 5:45. We had our morning drinks.

Since we can’t read blog posts and I can’t post any, instead we delved into sorting and arranging our photos. Bill is still catching up on his from Graceland. Today, we are going to Sedona so today’s words will be fewer (Yay! You say?) and the pictures collaged. I hope you enjoy them.
We didn’t walk around town today as it was their Veteran’s Day holiday and the town and areas were crazy packed. Trying to get in and around with Black Beauty was a challenge. We jiggled the jello a bit from what we were originally going to do but ended up seeing better views by driving up Airport Road to a parking area and hiking a mile to the summit and back down. We had fun climbing together, took many pictures, as you can see and took a nice leisurely drive home down 179S to I-17S.

but we all did it with smiles and pride

The rest of the day was quiet and very relaxing. None of us are as young as we used to be so we were all very proud of the exercise we took in today. For supper Bill barbecued steak and we had Caesar salad on the side with, of course, Tillamook White Chocolate and Raspberry Swirl ice cream for dessert. Bill likes peanuts on his and my favourite topping is walnuts.

Rob and Pat had to a number of years ago when they stayed here
It appears to be the number of feet from the river bed
We watched a new episode of Bull and then The Voice. These shows usually start at 7 which means we need to start watching at 5 pm.

By the time the latter was over, it was only 8, my eyes were droopy and Bill had switched channels to a Christmas movie. I decided to go up to bed to find something that I would enjoy and that would keep me awake. I enjoy Sex in the City (the program!) and haven’t seen it for a long time so watched a couple hours of that and turned the lights off at 10. That felt much better as I knew I’d sleep in later.

It was a wonderful day. Thank you for popping by!
