La Posa South, Quartzsite, AZ
On Saturday, Nov. 27th (wow, our time here is flying by!) I was up first with Gibbs at 7. Slept out so I took him out for his morning constitution. It was a calm morning and if the wind remained at bay, it would be a hot day. The forecast read 73F/23C. At home, that is a lovely warm day. Here, that is a lovely HOT day if there is no breeze. 😊
I haven’t been walking in the morning and since I was still in pj’s, I didn’t this morning either. We’ve got in the habit of waiting for our first coffee/tea until the sun is up and starts hitting our portable solar panel. The batteries drop overnight, since the sun is well gone by 5:30 and even if I don’t cook with power, the tv pulls them down to about 11.4 by early morning. So, I sat quietly downstairs and searched through my cupboard of books.
My unread novels are on the top shelf and Bill’s are on the bottom, after I’ve finished with them. He has a lot of catching up to do. This morning I chose an alternative to the mystery/detective stories. Pretense is by Lori Wick, whom I’m sure I’ve never read or heard of prior to picking this one up – somewhere. It looked and sounded interesting, so after my choice, I put the others back for next time.

Bill took his coffee in a go-mug and drove to his Quartzsite flying field. I wasn’t sure if he’d be flying but he wanted to get reacquainted with the whole idea before we left. I didn’t expect to see him before noon at the very latest. After my tea, I left Gibbs inside and took my Norwex materials outside to wash the large back window and the ones surrounding the kitchen table. 😊
Boy, did those pads look a mess when I finished! I should have taken a picture of the filth I’d removed, but instead, I was so pleased with the cleaning job that I took a picture of the window and then washed the pads and hung them to dry. As Gibbs and I sat outside in the sun, Gayle popped over to sit for a bit while John prepared breakfast. I’m glad she doesn’t mind coming here, it is more of a challenge taking Gibbs over there and although he gets excited to see them, he settles down eventually.
I forgot to mention that on Thursday night when Bill and the boys drove to the flying field, (which was a disappointment when no one was there on Thanksgiving), Gayle came over and her and I played a game of Cribbage. We’d not played for a long time since our hubby’s don’t play so it took a bit of re-learning to get the procedure down pat. It was fun and I’m glad she suggested it. We talked about how Mom and Daddy always seemed to have card games on the go. ♥
Bill returned around noon today so I lit the Weber and he cooked the sausage patties while I cooked scrambled eggs inside. We’re going to look for a small bbq compatible grill pan for the eggs too. I don’t know why I wasn’t that hungry; I’d just had yogourt at 8, but I seemed to be forcing the last few bites in, slipping a few pieces off my plate onto Bill’s. 😊 It tasted good though but I think I prefer the mini sausages.
After dishes, Bill went up for a snooze, I think he had another late night. He forgot his coffee mug and jacket at the field so we drove into town and first stopped there to get them. I wanted to check out the grocery store that Gayle mentioned yesterday so Bill parked in the busy lot of Coyote (yup, that’s the name of it) and I nipped inside. It was busy and mainly I only wanted eggs. You know that wouldn’t happen and I came out with tomatoes and some seedless grapes as well.
Before coming home, we popped into the Hardware/Grocery Store on Main St. Nothing we were looking for was in there so we came home. The rest of the day was reading outside for me and inside for Bill. It wasn’t really windy, just a slight breeze, and that sun was hot. I go a little crazy on my first opportunity to sun-sit on this journey so fully enjoyed it today again.
Bill took Gibbs for a walk on his long leash, giving him the opportunity to run a bit and then we all came indoors just before 5. I had thin chicken breasts thawed for supper and leftover spaghetti (w/o meat) to warm up so something would work. A potato extra for Bill plus veggies. Doesn’t that sound delicious? 😊 Well, that was what we had and it filled our tummies and tasted just fine. Gayle informed me earlier that they were having a fire tonight so we popped over there for a bit.
Judy and Gary were already there so we had a nice little catchup, laughs at John’s expense and a few great stories. It was 8:30 when we came back home. The propane fire was very nice but both Bill and I (plus I think the rest) were starting to feel the chill on our legs and backs. The Suite was very welcoming when we stepped into its natural 75F surroundings. ♥ We watched a pretty good Christmas Halllmark movie and I went to bed. Not sure when Bill came up.
This was another good day, they are stacking up just the way we like them, as busy or as calm as we like them to be.
Thank you for your visit and patience with my late posts. 😊
