Quiet Day, Jello Plans Jiggled

Park Place RV Park

On Saturday, Dec. 16th we were up by 7. What a beautiful sky I saw when I first got up! The day read a bit warmer on the thermometer but with clouds that never really disappeared all day, it felt cool to me. Bill left for the field by 7:30 and Gibbs and I went for our walk. I didn’t have anything going on today so walked over to work on the puzzle for a bit. Adele and Susan came in later but played some pool while I worked away.

Sometimes you just wake up to this

And you can'tget enough

It is a fun puzzle, fairly easy, and I’m enjoying it. At 10 or so, Bill popped over to the clubhouse and asked if I wanted to go to walk around Tyson Wells with him. For those that don’t know, it is an area in Quartzsite, on Kuehn St., that is all ‘tent’-type vendors. Kind of like a flea market but permanent for the winter. There aren’t too many here yet but it was a good time of the day to check it out. Bill found a few bungie cords for back home and I found some things in the big food tent. 😊

By late morning, it was like this

We were back home just after 11 so I walked back to put a few more pieces in before covering the puzzle. At 2 today is the Music Jam and there isn’t a lot of thought put into ‘being careful around a puzzle’ by the musicians. Sheila had already covered up our table so I turned around for home. Bill had a doze with Gibbs and I prepared lunch.

You never know what you'll see out here
that people live in.

Vendors on both sides of the streets
but not too busy yet

I had Madame IP boil 5 eggs from the fridge and we had our last 2 with bacon for a change. Adele and Robert offered some eggs from the farm he works at so I accepted 6. I debated taking the 2 chair quilts over to wash but with no sun to dry them on the line, ixnayed that plan. The Jello jiggled. 😊 Bill went back over the flying field, they had the runway sprayed yesterday and they are waiting for it to dry.

Gibbs and I sat outside for a bit.
He slept and then guarded Daddy's new delivery.

It felt chilly in the Suite, or at least I felt chilly, so Gibbs and I sat in the little patch of sun on the patio for about an hour – or less. We came in around 3:30 and Bill wasn’t far behind. For supper, he will barbecue steak and we’ll have a potato and vegetables. There we go again with the Sunday meal on a Saturday! Ha ha!

Our meals today.
Lunch and supper.

Last night, I watched the last 3 episodes of Justified, just couldn’t tear myself away, and it was soooo good. I’m sad it is over but I thoroughly enjoyed the series. I’m sure Bill will be watching movies tonight so I’ll see what I can find downstairs. This was a quiet but good day. Can’t complain about that!

Present earrings for the 4th day of Christmas.
Good night!

Thank you for the visit.


  1. Enjoyed the skyline pictures. Sounds like a quiet, enjoyable day.

  2. I love your twelve days of jewelry! It's good to see the vendors setting up. Hopefully this year will be even better. That little abode would be a no. I need a few more amenities than that!

  3. You got some great sunrise pictures! I took a good sunset picture last night.
    Earrings look cute!

  4. The sunrise was lovely. Hope the sun shines for you today!

  5. Your sunrise pictures are so pretty, we had a good one as well but I didn't take any pictures.

  6. Here is hoping that you had sunshine today. Yesterday you had a lovely day visiting the sales, and working on the puzzle.

    God bless.
