Park Place RV Park
On Friday, Dec. 8th we were up by 7. Not all at the same time but up, just the same. Bill went flying, I took Gibbs for his morning walk or visa versa. I decided that perhaps I needed to get myself out more often for those walks. Last winter, I was much more active in that department and it felt pretty good. 😊
So, after bringing Gibbs home, I headed to the east and walked through some of the residential homes. One section was a dead end so I had to turn around and come back.
I had my eyes peeled for rocks so ended up strolling back into the desert and turned my walk into a Saguaro hunt. My goal was to put some miles (steps) on this old body and just enjoy being outdoors.
returned, I sat with Gibbs for a while before walking over to start a puzzle.
This is another one I brought from home, another pretty picture, another 1000
pieces. 😊 Boy, did it seem easy to flip and
sort the pieces after that last one! I worked on my own until 11:30 when Adele
came over. I had done a fair bit and left her to it while I returned home for
surprised, and a little stunned, when Bill texted to tell me that Carol-Ann and
Kobus had pulled out! They never said a word so we hoped everything was all
right. Turns out, they were going to visit friends until after Christmas so we’ll
see them when they return. Gibbs will miss his pets from them, for sure! We had
our lunch and Bill went to get water and check the mail depot for his (Ken’s)
parcel. When he returned, I was stunned once more!
bread maker, the one that was ‘lost in transit’, arrived! No reason why,
because the address was correct, but now I have two. LOL. I have a decision to
make because we sure don’t need both. I think I’ll keep the newest one, it was
the most expensive, and check with my sister before offering the other for sale
anywhere. How funny! A lot of people said ‘it will arrive, wait and see’ and
that is exactly what happened. 😊
this may look soft and cuddly BUT....
it is an ant hill made of cactus shavings.
I watched them for a while, keeping my distance.
the video won't show up for you but take my word for it,
it was fascinating watching them so busy.
Bill and Gibbs at home and went back to the puzzle at 1:30. Adele was still
there so we worked together on it. It seems so easy! It was a fun afternoon and
when we parted ways at 3:30 ish, we said we’d finish it tomorrow. Bill and I
shared a Seagram’s Calypso Colada that Susan gave us rather than my cup of tea.
A whole one would have put me under the table! It was tasty and refreshing.
Gibbs and I went for our afternoon walk and I slip past the 6,000-step mark. Good for me! I needed to find a new book so pulled out The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz. I’ve read a couple of his first ones so wanted to check this one out. It’s in large print so that will help! For supper, we had grilled bacon cheeseburgers and the evening was spent quietly.

today's Saguaro pictures.
a good day, they are stacking up! Good news from a friend back home too.
Look closely here.

The tree branches are tightly wrapped around the
It is amazing how they can still stand,
thrive and produce babies while their
bases are so beaten down.
I love their stamina.
And then like brave soldiers, they fall.
After hundreds of years, it is just sad to see them.
