Another Town Trip, Quiet Day

La Posa South LTVA

On Tuesday, Nov. 29th we are enjoying our last 2 days here in the desert. We were up by 7:30 and Gibbs and I did the walk. It was another short one so I dropped him at home and went out again. The sky was clear blue again and with a cool breeze first thing, it felt cool. Cool enough that I needed to return inside for my mini gloves.

My shadow was happy to 'go the distance' with me
this morning

This is a gathering of the buses, I guess
I'm sure there will be more coming!

I met a fellow rv’er from Niagara Falls, Ontario and we chatted for a few minutes before I made my way home. By the time I returned, 50 minutes later, I was warmed up and couldn’t wait to shed my layers. It was still only 50F/10C. The sun warms it up so quickly here. 😊 I joined Bill with my tea and breakfast, the last of my oatmeal – darn – and then Bill took a drive into Satellite Advantage and a few other places.

You tell me, what do you see?
I see a fellow leaning on a post, waving

Gibbs and I stayed home and played my Word games online and got caught up on our friends’ blogs. He was looking for something in particular for his hobby and after relaying to me what he’d seen at Goodwill, we decided we’d have lunch and both go back in for another look. I was also looking for a yoga mat since I left mine at home. I’m not getting into ‘yoga’ per say but do want to be able to do some morning stretches either inside or outside.

I was happy for the hat today
that sun was beating down!

Gibbs had a Daddy thing going on
He wanted to sleep in his shade 💗

I found what I was looking for for $4 and Bill picked up what he’d seen earlier. A charging cord, something that got forgotten back home in the Hangar. We then went back to the Army/Navy Outpost where I found Polarized sunglasses. My new glasses are a different shape, bigger and squarer, so I needed to find some covering shades that fit at a reasonable price. I found a pair and so that was two bonuses today.

We returned home and relaxed for the remainder of the day. The neighbour behind us walked over with her dog (a Jack Russel/Poodle mix) to chat about our weather station and we talked about many other things beyond that. A nice lady and her husband is new to the radio controlled airplane hobby. Bill will probably connect with him at some point before we leave. Gibbs and the pooch got along swimmingly, by the way, after the first excitable meet and greet.

When we came inside, we all snoozed
I stretched out on the couch and Gibbs
had to lay on the arm above my head
Mama's turn

For supper, we had leftover sloppy joe ‘mush’ over rice, ending with a pumpkin cheesecake that I made this morning. Everything was very good. The cheesecake turned out pretty good although it didn’t set as much as I thought it should. Although I know I made one over the summer and it was the same so we’ll enjoy it anyway.

This was good on rice

We watched The Voice and a pre-recorded NCIS: Hawaii on our pvr. That was our evening. This has been a great day.

It was yummy for dessert
Good night!

Thank you for popping in. Your comments are always welcome.


  1. Love the hat. Sounds like you are enjoying your boondocking experience but looking forward to getting back to full hook-ups.

    1. Thank you Doug. Yes, it has been very peaceful out here but we are looking forward to being closer to town and having the hookups.

  2. My daughter and I have been using a stretching video on You-tube called 8 minute stretching routine for people who aren't flexible. It's a relative easy routine - even I can do it. :) I like it because it doesn't take long and no equipment (beyond the mat) is necessary.
    Enjoy your last day in the desert!

    1. That's encouragement, Maebeme, for me to do a similar stretching routine in the morning. Thank you!

  3. Nice hat. Glad you found a yoga mat. It’s amazing the things we forget at home!


    1. Thanks Deb. Yup, we're all guilty at forgetting things or not realizing we'll need something. ;)

  4. I get my morning stretches in trying to find Cooper's toys under the couch. No mat needed. Maybe you can show me the thrift stores when I get there. The look on Gibbs face just melts my heart.

    1. I bet you do!! My knees are not good on a hard surface. They're too bony! :)
      I sure can show you the stores we go to.

  5. Cute pic of you and your hat :) Lunch looks yummy too. You never know what you'll find at the local thrift stores. Your cheesecake is making me crave dessert!

    1. thank you, the hat does the job! Thrift stores are fun to poke through for sure. The cheesecake is yummy!

  6. The cheesecake looks perfect to me. You wouldn't care to send a couple of slices up here?

    Yes, that does look like a man leaning on a pole waving.

    God bless.

    1. I can try but it might be either liquid or frozen by the time the cake reaches you! haha
