Short and Sweet – Oh, and Warm

Park Place RV Park

We woke up on Tuesday, Mar. 14th to another warm day. The sun didn’t really make an appearance all day, but we weren’t expecting it to. Bill took Gibbs out at 6:30 and fyi, Gibbs is now jumping off the bed to go out most mornings. He has put the ‘trauma’ experience behind him. Bill left for the field shortly after 7:30 and after my tea, I got into my own activity.

The sun was hoping to make an appearance
but it didn't happen

I got all of the ingredients out for a couple of recipes. First, banana bread to use up the black bananas and secondly, it was time (and a good day) to make Gibbs some birthday cupcakes. ๐Ÿ˜Š Nancy put the bug in my ear so I googled an easy 3, well 4, ingredient recipe. Before starting, Gibbs and I went for our walk around the outskirts of the park.

The cupcakes look pretty inviting
with a piece of his treat on top
I told Bill not to touch them,
they belonged to Gibbs ๐Ÿ˜‚

Back home, I finished both of the recipes and popped them in the oven. In no time, the cupcakes were done and soon after, the bread. Bill returned home around 10:30 just as I was about to leave for some puzzle time. We chatted a bit and then I had a shower and went over until noon. The girls were playing pool so I had the puzzle all to myself.

With my sandwich at noon, I tried one
of these Keto yogourts that I found at Walmart
They are good!

Sorry, couldn't get this picture to rotate
This is how I left the puzzle at noon

We had egg salad on French bread for lunch and then I went back over for another hour and a half. Because the weather will be turning tomorrow to a cloudy, rainy, windy day, I packed my painting things into the containers I had outside on the table.

They look good, eh?

Gibbs thought they tasted pretty good too

The temperature today remained around 79F/26C and dropping only to 61F/16C overnight. The rain is expected to start around 7 am.

With the ladies playing Pokeno,
I finished 'erecting' the barn ๐Ÿ˜€

This group of ladies meet every Tuesday
at 1 - 3 pm for a friendly penny game

I was thrilled that for lunch, Gibbs ate and loved one of his cupcakes. Oh good! We’ll taste the banana bread tomorrow after it rests in the fridge for the night. I hope it turned out. For supper, Rosy air fried chicken nuggets and I made a garden salad as a side dish. Both were very good. We watched The Voice and then a special called The Seven Ages of Elvis that Bill recorded on our PVR.

Our afternoon walk, was warm but
still under those cloudy skies
Notice the Plomosa Mountains at the end of the road?

Supper was good
And that's it for Tuesday for us!
Good night!

This was a great day, another one, ๐Ÿ˜‰. I hope yours was too! Thank you for the visit!


  1. We are in Why and it sounds like the weather here is very similar we started the morning with sunshine and in no time the sky was filled solid with clouds. I was reading your last post it does seem like the winter flew by. Cute rocks.

  2. I'd like to have the cupcake recipe for pups sometime Patsy. They looked cute. Glad that Gibbs has forgotten his step worry.

  3. I bet Bill stole one of Gibbs cupcakes!! LOL. They sure look GOOD!!!

  4. Haha, Bill had strict instructions NOT to touch. ☺️

  5. Lucky Gibbs! He certainly had a happy Birthday.
    Enjoy that warm weather and try to bring some back to Canada with you when you return.

  6. Oh my. Gibb's cupcakes looked delicious. Lucky dog....lucky dog!

  7. I agree, those cupcakes look yummy!

  8. I am glad Gibbs enjoyed his cupcake. You did a good job.

    God bless.
