Yuma Lakes RV Resort
Thursday, Nov. 17th has arrived and we’re sliding down to the end of the week. Or is it up? Hmmm. Anyway, the days are zipping by but still not a whirlwind like I think September was. We are enjoying our time here in Yuma Lakes, heck all of the places we’ve been since we left home. It hasn’t even been a month yet but it feels longer than that, in a good way. 😉
Gibbs and I got up shortly after 7:30, we slept in today. Bill was still pretty sleepy so we left him in bed and slipped out for a nice tour around the park.
To the east
this time. I was able to catch a long-distance photo of the blue heron across
the pond and that made me happy. What a grand bird he is, so big! There was
another large white bird on the opposite bank and I assume it was an egret or
white heron? He wouldn’t stand straight enough for me to get a good photo.
|The courts are nicely maintained
They have tape measures on a stick which makes it very easy to judge which ball is closest to the ‘pea’ ball to see who gets the point. That beats getting down on your knees to measure by hand. Smart idea!

playing, it was a bit chilly to start as we were up on a hill in the wind but I
soon warmed up, as did others, and we removed jackets. There were about 12 or
14 players so 3 courts were utilized and I was able to run all of their names
over my tongue when I got home. Don’t ask me to put all the faces to the names
though, that would be asking too much! I look forward to going back on Tuesday.
night I finished Fatal Error and I started a new book this morning. James
Patterson’s ‘Private Down Under’ is in large print so I’m slipping through it
quickly and Bill started another J.A. Jance called ‘Proof of Life’ last night
too. My Goodreads list of books read this year may not meet my expectations but
I’m sure making a good stab at it this month! 😊
We had lunch and I changed and walked up to the pool. Taking a non-verbal hint from Carol, I decided to do noodle laps like she does. It’s exercise that I could certainly use and enough to get the heart rate up without actually swimming, which I’m not good at for any length of time. I completed 15 and got out to relax. The clouds moved over but they were light and still allowed some sun to peek through.

gorgeous Arizona sunsets

I started my post back home and then sat with a cup of tea to read. For
supper, I had Madame IP cook us up some pork ribs with potatoes. While I was
browning them up on the Weber, Bill cooked my asparagus and his corn. Supper
was delish!! After clean up, we relaxed for the evening with no tv tonight.
for coming by!
