Just want to start out with something pretty. This was taken the Saturday before we left Huatabampito. They have pretty sunsets there. [Aarrgg - have to get used to the keyboard on my PC - some keys are in different places from laptop.]
We were happy to see that all of our plants survived the winter, even the bougainvillea. Everything seems to be getting new leaves.
Even the ocotillo has one branch with leaves. See the arrow. One whole branch out of 20 with signs of life.
The Palo Verde has really leafed out.The RV and car out front. Between Monday when we got here and yesterday we got everything out of the RV. And put it back in storage. Of course it was a couple of hours later that I remembered three things I forgot to take out. One of which was sausage! So went over there this a.m. and got the stuff. It is only two blocks away so no big deal. Good thing I remembered.
Woke up to rain this morning. Glad we got everything done when we did.
At least we managed to get everything out of the RV before this started up.
I've been busy. Did all the piled up laundry from travel, RV things that need to be washed and all my skirts and blouses from the trip - Didn't want to send them to the laundry as the blouses need delicate wash and the skirts and blouses all need ironing - I know - IRON a four letter word. If I didn't quilt I would not have an iron! So ironed this morning while it was raining. All done, all put away.
The stuff from the RV that been cleaned and waiting to go back in it. Will do that when we bring it back for cleaning. I found four dish cloths in the kitchen goods drawer in the RV. So took them out to use instead of paper towels. Remember them? Also had two more in house cupboard. Do they even sell them any more?
The Jeep is already in the back yard and covered. And my car started right up.
I even cooked breakfast this morning. Can't remember the last time I did that. We had fresh fruit, home fries, sourdough toast and each had one egg. I wish we'd bought a couple of dozen when the store in Amado had them. I figured we both needed to get a solid meal into us. I was thinking about baking a cake, but don't want to use three of our few eggs. Going to fix some kind of chicken for dinner. Have to be sparing with our potatoes too - there weren't any in the markets in Amado.
Not much else going on today.
I think I am kind of a rational person, but this thing is creeping me out. Every time Bill or I sneeze, snuffle or cough I want to freak out. We both have mild allergies so we both sneeze and sniffle during the day. Never thought about it before. And suddenly 80 is a bad age...first time I've been aware of our ages.
And here is another sunset from Huatabampito. The night before we left.
