Our Location today is La Posa South LTVA, Quartzsite, Arizona, U.S.A.
It’s hard to believe that I’m able to get an early start at writing the Blog this evening. It must have something to do with the rest of North America moving to Daylight Savings Time while here in Arizona that didn’t happen.
We slept with our Windows and Vents wide open once again Last Night though we didn’t have the excitement from the Coyotes like we had late Friday Night. Being that little bit more relaxed helped the both of us to get a solid night’s sleep. I was so well rested that I was wide awake by 6:00 Arizona Time so after getting a few things ready for breakfast I settled in to read my E-mails and a few of the morning Blogs until the Computer flashed a message that I was down to Ten Percent on the Battery.
It was perfect timing as I shut down Kathy was getting up at 7:30 so we had a wonderful breakfast where we discussed plans for the next couple of days. As soon as breakfast was over I shut one Inverter off and turned the Main Inverter on to charge things up. Surprisingly the morning temperature here at Quartzsite was only 57 F (14 C) but it was more than thirty degrees warmer then back in McGregor and we didn’t have the forecasted white coating to put up with.
By 10:00 we’d finished our normal chores and Kathy had moved on to working on a Décor Change while I headed outside. Even at that early hour being exposed to the direct Sunlight robbed you of your energy levels very quickly. Today my plans were to try to organize the little things that have ended up in multiple containers throughout the basement.
|Even with the Sunshade it was Hot.|
First things first though in order to cut the heat not only where I was working but inside the Trailer I took the time to install our Sunshade on our Awning. The difference was immediately noticeable but it was still too hot to work on the sunny side of the trailer. I’d also planned on checking our Propane Tanks before we head off on Thursday. I was pleasantly surprised how much cooler it was on the north side of the trailer in the shade.

and Pudding for dessert.
With the Propane Tanks Switched out I started my sorting until Kathy called me in for lunch. She had made Turkey Sandwiches sliced from the Mini Butterball Turkey we had grilled on the Weber Q the other day. It all tasted great but the inside of the trailer was like an oven. When I told her how cool it was to the north side of the trailer she didn’t believe me. I suggested she continue her project in the cool of the up coming mornings and to come sit by where I was working to cool off.

She finally joined me by 1:00 and couldn’t believe how cool it was compared to inside. We spent the rest of the afternoon outside together. Kathy was reading her Book and after I finished my sorting for the day I finished my Cryptogram puzzle book. There was a gentle north breeze that really made it pleasant.

|Potato Salad, Sauteed Mushrooms and Baby Back Ribs.|
After 4:30 Kathy went inside to make a Potato Salad and sautee some Mushrooms while I grilled some Baby-Back Ribs on the Weber. With the temperature inside the trailer being 90 F (32 C) as soon as we finished eating Kathy was about to start the dishes. I suggested leaving them until the Sun went down and things got cooler. I didn’t have to make that suggestion twice. As the Sun slowly approaches the mountain range Kathy is sitting next to me in front of the trailer reading while I am writing this post.
With the Sun already set we
were packing things up to go in for the night when we started seeing what
looked like a ball of Fire coming from
behind the mountains to our east. We thought that we were witnessing the start
of a major Fire when suddenly a
round glow came over the mountains. Neither of us had realized that the Moon had not yet risen. We were actually
embarrassed and relieved at the same time.

|Love the Sunsets|
With Hot Temperatures forecasted for the rest of the week there is no telling what the next few days will bring but we’ll definitely have lots to do. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
