La Posa South, Quartzsite, Az
Thursday, Jan. 27th was a very cold morning for us. Our outdoor thermometer was reading 33F/.5C. That’s cold. Our indoor temperature was reading 51F/10C, chilly. I wasn’t discouraged though when Gibbs woke me up at 7:10 to go out for his first piddle. He was in bed with me at 10 so what a good little sleepy head! I took him out quickly for his piddle and then came in to get dressed for our walk.
We walked fast and the only thing that was cold on me was my face and my hands. We returned before 8 and Bill was downstairs with a coffee. Another clear sky so we knew the sun would charge our batteries very quickly. I made my tea and we relaxed reading blogs before getting washed up. We left Gibbs in charge of the house at 9:15 and drove to Parker. Not Blythe today.
Walmart will have the groceries we need for the same or better prices than Albertson’s and we wanted a CVS Store. I also wanted to look for more wool for my blanket. We really stocked up with our groceries and as luck would have it, there were 3 large balls of wool in a colour mix that would work perfectly with what I started with. I grabbed them all! The shelves were pretty empty of choices. 😊
We were both very hungry when we got home and got the food put away. It was a quick decision when I baked some cinnamon rolls for lunch. Since it was around 1:30 we knew this would interfere with supper. Oh well, it would be a simple one.
For the rest of the afternoon I did a lot of crocheting outside and Bill did a lot of reading inside. Gibbs rotated in and out and was a pretty good little guy. He is still quite infatuated with my project so I need to keep the wool out of reach when I’m not using it.
Some days I think I should put a photo book together
of the different people we se 👀
From 'hippies' to 'classy' to 'farmers' to 'homeless' to 'cowboys'
all normal everyday people that make this world go around. 😀
Supper turned out to be out of a can. Denison’s Chili Con Carne is the name and I’m writing it here so I can remember it. It was delicious!! Mom used to make chili con carne a lot for our large family and I could have eaten it night after night. There were seldom any leftovers, because we all loved it. I will definitely buy this again for Bill and I. 😊
After dishes, we relaxed for the evening. Either my book or my blanket kept me busy. This was a great day, it was nice to get out for a drive.
Thank you for stopping around.
