La Posa South, Quartzsite, Az
On Friday, Jan. 28th it is like we blinked and the month has flown by. I’m happy to say though, that it didn’t feel like that to me, us. It was a slow leisurely January and we have enjoyed it a lot. It is our first time to be boondocking for this long, in one stretch. 😊 We still think this year is not a good judge for how much we liked it.
In one way, maybe I’ve said this before, it was too quiet without the hustle/bustle of many friends and many Happy Hours. Another perspective is that it was more peaceful, more relaxing and the privacy was great for our little family. Given a choice, we’d rather connect with our friends, here for the 2-week period during the Quartzsite show, since we have all the time in the world to be on our own, away from here. Sounds confusing, but it really isn’t.
Today, Gibbs and I went for a shorter walk since Bill and I wanted to head into the Big Tent one more time. We left the Suite a few minutes after 8, got a good spot and after playing our Wordle game on my phone, read until 9. There was no lineup today, the 2nd last day of the show. There was hardly anyone in the tent and we walked down the middle of each aisle with only a couple of stops at booths.
We’d bought magnetic bracelets last Saturday and I needed the young man who sold them to us to take one link out of mine. He did that, we reported on our experiences after wearing them for the time since purchase and moved on. We did one walk around outside and then spent some time wandering through the Grand Design Solitudes. For no reason other than finding the one Bill fell in love with 2 years ago. 😊 It was fun but nothing will be happening in that department.
|A yummy lunch if I do say so myself!|
Back home, I dust mopped the floors and did some dusting, basically (in his mind) chasing Gibbs around the Suite. Ha ha. What is it with doggies and mops and dust mitts? ♥ At noon, I made us toasted omelette bun sandwiches and wow, they were really good! After dishes, I took my blanket outside and worked away until the clouds moved in and cooled things down. I’ve made good progress which tells you that it is an easy pattern that I’m following. 😊
Supper was one of those fall back on meals. Mac & cheese with tube steaks (aka wieners) and it was good. Are olives a vegetable? That was my side dish. Teehee. We did the dishes and watched a bit of fill in tv until Magnum P.I. came on at 7. Because of the clouds late afternoon, we put the generator on to watch the show and spent the last couple of hours with our books. Bill has finished another one! He’s leaving me in the dust.
This was a good day. We had fun touring some new rv’s this morning and spent a pleasant afternoon together. I hope you have had a good day as well. Funny story - my little brother in Cold Lake, Alberta texted me a thank you for his Christmas card. It just arrived today. LOL Mailed from Yuma early December. The good news is that it still looks like Christmas in that neck of the woods with all their snow OR that it is early for next Christmas! I'd say it took a trip around the world.
Thank you for your visit. Get ready for the weekend!
