I can’t believe that I slept in until 7:30 on Friday, Feb. 7th! I knew I saw 5 am but then nothing for an hour and a half. Bill was already downstairs drinking his coffee. He greeted me with “Good morning, sleepyhead”. I deserved that but I must have been tired. The night and early morning was filled with dreams, I just can’t remember details.

We were there by 5 minutes to 9
There was no time for a walk this morning so after my tea, we left the Suite at 8:30 to pick the ‘kids’ up. We were all going to the Arizona Market today. I guess it is true, there IS no rest for the wicked! Ha ha Once at the market, Kim and I wandered together and left the guys to do their own perusing. I didn’t buy much but I did pick up the bicycle basket I’d seen before. It was a great price and I couldn’t pass it up. It will have to come off each time we pack up to move but it just slips over the bars. No need to screw it in place.

Kim found some sweet deals and came home with some nice things in the clothing category. 😊 She is so petite that anything looks good on her, in her colour tones. I’m sure she’d look great in my shades too but ‘it isn’t me’, she says. When we left the market, Keith with a chair under his arms and Bill with new wheel covers for the Suite, we drove to Southwest Exchange. I wanted to kick up their 20 cm copper frypan that I’d seen for under $10. Got that and I was a happy camper!
Lastly, Kim and I took a saunter through the Kitchen Store (although it isn’t called that). It is very pricey but fun to walk through anyway. The owner is an elderly gentleman and a very polite one. One last stop at Fry’s for milk and we were headed home. It was 12 noon when we pulled in and I immediately shed a layer and walked up to the clubhouse to sign us up for 5$ burger night.

At 3:00 we walked up to the Wilson’s site for Happy Hour with our cooler of drinks, our chairs and our dishes for supper. Keith arrived a bit later and we chatted it up in the partial shade until it was 4:30, time to walk to the clubhouse for Burger night. I had ordered a hot dog tonight and took a chance on getting the bun. I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to eat it on the left side of my mouth so took a knife in preparation of having to cut it up on my plate.

As it turned out, I did fine. After a couple of bites, the rest was easy. They had macaroni salad, not my favourite, so I passed on that. Instead, I had lettuce, pickles and tomato on my plate and then a chocolate brownie for dessert. It is never too much food, but enough to fill us at the same time. We walked back together and said goodbye to Keith and then Ken and Kim on our way.

At home, I sat and worked on my blog post. Bill and I found an interesting program last night about a Dr. who helps people with skin problems. It isn’t pleasant but it is reality and for the time being, we are caught up in it. It is pretty amazing what can be done with deformities.

The rest of the evening was pretty quiet between tv and our books. This was a great day with more relaxing than the previous week. We are happy that tomorrow and Sunday are days with nothing planned. I’m hoping to just get really lazy.
