It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Getting Warmer, Odd Chores, Updating Sidebars and Changing Plans.

Our Location today is La Posa South LTVA, Quartzsite, Arizona, U.S.A. 

With all the Fresh Air that we breathed yesterday while at the Blogger-Fest neither of us had any problems sleeping. With our habit of warming the trailer just before going to bed then shutting it off overnight we also tend to stay cozy under the covers. I was shocked to have slept until nearly 8:00 MST this morning and I didn’t even have things ready for breakfast when Kathy came downstairs thinking she’d overslept. With no appointments or plans for the day she didn’t have to worry. 

Our plans for the day were to do what we could without overdoing it because we’re Retired. After getting partially caught up on our morning reading because of the poor Wireless Connection we started focusing on other more concrete things to do. Kathy had purchased a couple of pieces of Wall Art while we were in Lake Havasu that needed to be hung. Using Velcro as a means of fastening things to the walls eliminates screws into the walls therefore there are less air leaks. 

I was also going to hang the Over the Door Multi-Towel Rod we had purchased only to find the Product did not match the picture on the Box. We had similar Towel Rods in our other trailers that worked great but this style was more Fancy then it was Practical so we’ll be looking for something else that will do the job. 
I went outside to take measurements for a different style of Bracket to hold the Mast for our HD Antenna to the Ladder. The Brackets I had made before were from Scrap Ends of Aluminium Angle Material from the Solar Panel Brackets. Though these Brackets worked they were Not Practical due to the High Winds that we have been having and would allow the Mast to lean.  
This morning Kathy spent some time finishing a book she’d started yesterday before making lunch. By lunch time the outside temperature had reached 59 F (15 C) and felt comfortable if you were in the sun but we were still getting a Cool North Wind that felt extremely cold in the Shadows. For lunch Kathy kept it light with a Chicken Salad and topped it with some Strawberries we bought in Parker on Friday. 

Kathy has a little Family Project she is working on and since it required a steady hand and no movement in the trailer I was told to take a walk. I visited with George and Suzie for a short while before making a brief stop at Bill and Patsy’s RV 

I’d made the offer to fill Mike and Dee’s Fresh Water Tank if they needed so they took me up on the offer but only if it wasn’t an inconvenience. Since I’d emptied our Fresh Water Barrel on Friday to make it easier to handle because we were going to Parker I needed to refill it today. When I arrived at the Water Fill Area one set of the Refill Faucets were marked “Out of Service” but it meant that there was a Higher Water Pressure in the remaining set. It took very little time to top off both our Neighbour’s Fresh Water Tank as well as Our Own. 

By 3:00 in the afternoon our outside temperature did reach 68 F (20 C) but still if you were in the shadows it still felt cool and since Kathy was done her project for the day I went inside to get some computer work completed.

Yesterday at Blogger-Fest many of the Attendees had Business Cards that they exchanged as a way of introducing you to their Blogs if you weren’t already following them. That meant I had to enter them on our Left Sidebar as “Bloggers We Have Met” and the ones that we were not already following are also on the Right Sidebar as “Blogs We Follow”. There were also a number of people that didn’t have Business Cards so when we get their information from Lorne Green I’ll add those at a later date. 

Ariane, Doug and Yuma.

For supper Kathy made a Vegetable Stir-Fry to go with a Spiral Sliced Ham we had and she topped it off with the remainder of those Strawberries we had earlier for another tasty treat. 

Since most of our Canadian RV Neighbours will be leaving La Posa South in the next few days Kathy and I might head down the road where our LTVA Permit is still Valid. That will give us a change of scenery and give us a chance to explore someplace we haven’t seen yet. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. If you haven't been to Imperial Dam LTVA yet, that's a good place - and it has wild burros roaming around. Sometimes I see them, sometimes I don't. But I usually go at least once a year, hoping they are there when I am. It's on this side of Yuma, off the 95. :)

  2. It was nice to meet you at Blogger-Fest Rick, and those strawberries sure look good 😊

  3. Lots of great area to explore and your permit is good at any of them.

  4. If you do move down to Imperial Dam LTVA we will be anxious to hear your thoughts on the area. As it is one of the places we are considering this year.
    Stay safe and keep enjoying the desert.
