Pilot Knob RV Resort, Winterhaven, CA
I was up out of bed at my normal time on the holiday Monday, Feb. 17th. I sat quietly downstairs with my book until Bill came down for his coffee. It was mild overnight so no need for heat this morning. At 7:30, we went for our walk. The daylight is starting earlier now which is a sure sign of longer days. It was a warm 57F with little to no wind as we walked the perimeter of the park. Back home, my creamy tea tasted very good.

There were no issues with my gums overnight but I will continue to pop the antibiotics until they are done. I don’t want any problems by stopping too soon. We sat at our laptops and I read blogs while Bill checked out the prices of a new toilet online. Camping World is the best deal although it means ordering one in and waiting for it. Being a Good Sam member helps a lot and we got $30 off the sale price. So, we ordered it and will hope it is delivered here sooner than the suggested delivery date of Feb. 25.
Today is Monday, bocce ball day so at 9:15 I walked up to play. Bill was undecided when I wrote this so I left without him. It was a gorgeous day, the nicest yet at this time of the morning. There were16 players plus Gordon and Barb, the scorekeepers, so we switched between two courts. I think I only played 3 games this morning, not a winner on any, but at 11 I was ready to go home. I needed to take one of my pain pills as I was feeling a bit of discomfort in the socket.

Back home, Bill was reading outside and when we came in, I made us sausages and eggs for lunch. At the same time, I boiled 6 eggs in Madame IP – 5, 5, 5 – and let them sit in ice water for the last 5 +. After dishes, I blended my cream cheese and heavy cream and added it to the raspberry Jell-o that I made up yesterday. We needed some no-cal, no-sugar desserts in the fridge again.
|Lunch went down very nicely|
Bill went upstairs to lay down and I sat in my chair with my book to let the pain meds work. After Bill got up to work on his model, I wanted to see Doug’s White Lion so wandered down the back row to his site. I also wanted to tell him that we wouldn’t be around for Happy Hour today. As it turned out, he must have got results from his phone calls about a bad tire. The White Lion was gone but his Jeep was still there. That can only be good news for him.

I walked around the park a bit before heading back. I sat outside with my crochet bag and worked away on my slippers. It was very hot but it still felt wonderful. Around 2, I came inside and we put our drinks in a cooler. Bill had our bag chairs in the back of the truck already and at 2:30, we drove to pick Kim and Ken up with their chairs etc. Today, we drove to Westwind RV Resort in the Yuma Foothills to visit Jo-Anne, Bob and Higgins.
|Higgins was just as cute as ever and very good today|
They were expecting us and Jo-Anne and Higgy were waiting outside. We all had a nice catchup chit chat until 5 and talked about our plans after Yuma. It sounds like we will all be going together as far as Lake Havasu and that will be fun. We drove back the long way, stopping at Fry’s grocery store for fuel. For some unknown reason, Bill wasn’t offered the discount on fuel but at least it wasn’t a full fill so it wasn’t too disheartening.
