Pilot Knob RV Resort, Winterhaven, CA
It was closer to 7 when we got up on Sunday, Feb. 16th. Half way through the month already, wow, that is just crazy how time flies 'when you’re having fun'. That sounds better than saying ‘when you’re older’. We didn’t have a lot on the agenda today but we did decide to go into Yuma for groceries and a couple of other things this morning. I might nip into Hobby Lobby for 3 more balls of wool at their 30% off sale.

This would indicate spring, if we saw this back home
We had our showers first thing instead of walking, then our drinks and a bite to eat. I had some of my homemade apple sauce with yogourt. Good for me but it is an acquired taste and I’m not sure if I’m getting there with it. It put something in my tummy and then I set out an antibiotic pill before we left. It wasn’t time to take one yet. My mouth/gum was great last night and I didn’t need to take a pain pill. Yay! I wonder how long that will last.
|It wasn't too busy this morning at 10:30|
So, we left around 9 and picked Keith up so he could stock up too. First, we went to Walmart and Bill got 2 jugs of DEF fluid. The price is amazingly cheap when you buy the Walmart brand and it works just as well, leaving $ in your pocket. I wandered around and picked up some Vitamin C pills, something I like to have on hand. Then we drove to Fry’s for groceries. We all stocked up and came out with savings. Our fuel points are adding up again.

Keith needed gas for his quad so did that while we were in the parking lot. One quick stop at Harbor Freight (and they were quick!) to get a small furniture blanket for $3.99. We use our plug-in cooler sometimes and set it on the back seat of Black Beauty. Bill is concerned about that ripping or marking the leather so the blanket is a great idea. Keith and I were all excited about going to Hobby Lobby but we’d forgotten it was Sunday and that HL is closed. Darn! Another day.

When Oreo saw Bill, she jumped off and ran over and up onto his lap
(wish I'd got that picture)
When he drove away, Oreo jumped off Bill and hopped up on the quad again
We drove home. We unloaded and unpacked, filling the fridge up again. Famous last words ‘we don’t need much’ always turn into a full fridge and cupboards. We don’t buy what we don’t need but today I picked up some Tillamook Vanilla Bean ice cream, for one. After all the recommendations and commendations, we HAVE to try it! I took an antibiotic pill when we got in and then after putting groceries away, made a coffee and took a pain pill. There was a slight bit of discomfort. Then I sat quietly.
|And the slippers are started|
Bill went back with Ken to Doug’s to offer some advice and assistance with the White Lion. I moved outside with my crochet bag and began working on my slippers to replace the ones with the hole. Luckily, I had some of the same wool left as I really liked the colours. Following my short cut of instructions in the little note pad, it went really well. After sitting for a while, I decided I’d better get out for a walk since I missed one this morning. Walking at Fry’s didn’t add much to my step count. I saw that the boys were saying goodbye to Doug and I carried on for a bit longer.

We shot the bull until 5 and then everyone went off towards their respective homes. Time for supper! Bill grilled a pork chop and inside I put salad out on our plates and warmed up the leftover cheeseburger soup from last night. It tasted good and I was surprised that I ate it all. We weren’t done yet; we had some apple crisp with the vanilla bean ice cream. I concur with what we were told. It is delicious! Kim, you’ll have to come and taste it. 😊
|My 'soft' supper|
We did dishes and watched the first episode of American Idol. We both enjoy the tom foolery between Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. We also agree with each other that it is nice to have all music entertainers in deference to America’s Got Talent, where it is all over the board. I sat at my laptop and wrote on my post for today. After pictures were downloaded, I decide to finish and publish it tonight. I was feeling tired but it was early.

Today was a nice day. We managed to get our groceries bought and had a quiet rest of the day. Unfortunately, we had another upset with the toilet but we’ll figure it out.
Good night y'all!
Thank you for taking the time to see what we’re up to.
