Pilot Knob RV Resort, California
On Wednesday, Dec. 15th we were up at 6:30, dressed, Gibbs was walked and fed and we were on our way to Mexico with our hot drinks at 7:30. We each had an appointment for a cleaning, checkup and a possible filling replacement for Bill. Dr. Eva’s office opened as we arrived in her beautiful courtyard and Bill was called in within 5 minutes.
They have 2 dentists, Dr. Eva and her younger counterpart, I missed her name. Dr. Eva handles more things but I’m sure it’s nice to have someone available when she can’t be. 😊 I was called in just a few minutes after Bill and had a successful cleaning/check through and was back in the waiting room within 20 minutes, smiling. Unfortunately, Bill didn’t get off as lucky.
Almost two hours later he came out and we made another appointment, one of two more, to get things fixed up. ☹ Darn! That’s what missing a year did to us, I guess, we sure weren’t expecting a big expense this year. Oh well, the flip side of the coin, which is the bright side, reminds us of the costs for root canals, crowns and cleanings back home. We still consider ourselves blessed to have this opportunity.
When we left there, we stopped at the Purple Pharmacy and I picked up a couple of bottles of their white vanilla and when we heard the price of the shingles/cold sore cream, bought 4 tubes. The prices have actually gone down for the things we purchase! My pills that I bought last week were only $10.25 compared to $13.99 in 2020. 😊 Gotta love that! Even the vanilla was $1.50 less. No line up again to return to California at 11:00.
I had one egg left, after my baking yesterday, so I offered it to Bill with some bacon and he had it in a toasted sandwich. I finished my noodle soup with a slice of fresh bread with peanut butter. They go hand in hand for me and that was good and filling. We felt tired out, I guess we’re getting used to sleeping in after all! Bill and Gibbs went up for a snooze and I made a coffee and started my post writing.
Rather than plan a trip to Fry’s for food tomorrow afternoon, we drove into Yuma around 1:30. There are a few things we need, some for my baking endeavours and some for every day. We were hoping to w/d some cash from the AllPoints machine at CVS but since it was out of order, we picked up a couple of greeting cards and came home. We’ll go back before Monday, unfortunately, many dentist offices only take cash or cheque.
With the bags
emptied and food put away, we relaxed for the remainder of the short afternoon.
😊 Now I really felt the results of early rising! It was my
turn to go upstairs for a rest. I took my book but instead got involved in the
tv. Gibbs was up and down, not sure who to hang with so he shared his love. ♥ I watched the tail end of a good Christmas movie and hope to see it on
again. A Heartland Christmas is one of those real Christmas movies.

I fried thin coated chicken breasts for supper, cooked stove top stuffing and made a Caesar salad to go with them. They were quite good and Bill and I got involved in another good movie. This one was The Christmas Visitor. 😊 When a Hallmark one came on, I moved back upstairs to watch something different. You could say that Bill and I don’t share a lot of tv these days but soon the season will be behind us and we’ll be back in the swing of our normal lives. LOL
We had enough dishes from today so we filled the dishwasher. It was time to run it for a change. This was a mixed bag of a day. Not all good but not terrible either. The sun kept the temperatures pretty decent with a high of only 61F/16C but without the high winds, which ended in the wee hours of the morning, it was a nice day.
Thank you for popping around.
