It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Making Use Of Miserable Weather, Adjusting Our Sidebar and Fixing Doucettes But Getting Cabin Fever.

Our Location today is Quartzsite, Arizona, U.S.A. 

Slowly we are making changes that are helping us in our effort to live comfortably when the temperature decides to dip down on the cold side. Kathy gets to sleep moderately warm while I need to be toasty and that is all done with the use of blankets and how they are put on the bed. The fact that yesterday’s rain kept a slight but steady rhythm on our roof last night was like a message that kept repeating itself that whatever we had to do outside could wait and to turn over and go back to sleep. 

I slept in until nearly 7:30 MST this morning and after opening the blinds was surprise to see Fog enveloping most of the area. We couldn’t see the mountains, nor the traffic on the road for that matter. This made it feel more depressing than yesterday’s cloud covered day. When Kathy got up shortly after 8:00 the sun tried breaking through the clouds but only managed less then a minute before being blocked from sight for the entire day. With a light drizzle falling throughout the morning we were in no hurry to do anything outside so we stayed at the computers a bit longer than normal. We really needed to do just that so the weather was actually a blessing in disguise. 
For less than a minute we saw the Sun today.
On Tuesday Night’s Blog Post, I relayed the message of the Third Annual Blogger-Fest with a copy of the Flyer on our post. Last night since I was running out of time to post I forgot to include it. This morning I added it temporarily to our Sidebar so that everyone can see it. If you are a Blogger, Follower or occasional Reader and are in the La Posa South LTVA near Quartzsite on January 28th 2017 just after 1:00 stop in and get to know the people behind the Blogs. 
After accomplishing the normal morning chores, I got things lined up for what would definitely take most of the afternoon to accomplish. Kathy made a well-balance lunch with Soup, some Fruit and Cookies. It worked for us. 
More rain this afternoon.
While Kathy washed the dishes, I organized myself at the Dining Room Table to do our Pill Doucettes. I’ve mentioned before that when I did them every Saturday Evening we had a hard time to go anywhere. I later started doing multiple weeks and went from just over an hour for one week’s worth of pills to ninety minutes for three weeks worth of pills but it was still on Saturday night. I now do six and a half weeks worth of pills in less than two and a half hours. The best part is I am not always refilling our Doucettes on Saturday evenings. 

Just as I was closing up shop from that chore UPS finally delivered my new Credit Card. Looking at the Address on the inside mailing envelope it was not the fault of UPS for this Mix-Up. The first thing after the table was all cleaned off was to call and activate this card. I’d no sooner finished that when Kathy was having trouble while making an Online payment. We left a message with the Credit Union but since it was so late I’ll try again in the morning to get it straightened around. 

With the damp, miserable looking weather Kathy was starting to suffer a bad case of Cabin Fever and just needed to get out. We first drove by the Vendors Area but they were all battened down and many of them closed because of the weather. As we drove through town we could see large pools of Standing Water in some of the Washes.

I suggested eating out so we tried the Times Three Family Restaurant as our choice for supper since we haven’t eaten there yet. Their Thursday Special was Spare Ribs the same as the Main Street Eatery. This place is slightly larger, their food was just as good, prices and service the same but we just like the Main Street Eatery better.

It was getting dark by the time we got Home and with the dampness in the air we immediately turned on our Electric Fireplace to take the chill out of the air.  

Since we’ve left McGregor other than the time we were in Nashville we have had little time to enjoy ourselves or do any exploring on this trip. With the sun expected to greet us for breakfast we might just do that tomorrow and save some of that work for between the Holidays. We also have a Birthday Greeting to get out tomorrow so we’ll just wait and see how the day turns out. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.
