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.

Sleeping In, Lunch For Breakfast, Meeting Neighbours Doing Laundry, Picking Up Packages and A Beautiful Sunset.

Our Location today is La Posa South L.T.V.A., Quartzsite, Arizona, U.S.A.

Since late Tuesday night I have not taken any more of the Generic Mucinex medication. After experiencing relief from the congestion cause by the “Crud” I wanted my own immune system to take over again. Knowing that we would have a busy day I set a mental note that I wanted to wake up before 8:00 MST. My brain apparently didn’t get the message! With the Window Shades keeping most of the sunlight out of the bedroom when I rolled over and looked at my Watch my first thought was that it had stopped last night. When I went downstairs and saw that the Wall Clocks agreed I went into shock. It was well past 9:30!

Even when I shook Kathy awake and told her we slept in she thought I was joking. When she said her watch had stopped I had to tell her to believe it. We both felt well rested but it was like we had just gone to bed.

For breakfast it was a simple snack with our coffee before we started getting ready to go. It has been twelve days since the last time so today was Laundry Day. It didn’t take long but it was still after 11:00 when I started loading the Truck. We had planned on doing other errands as well but in a more relaxed manner then we were presently in. 
Packages that were shipped to us.
It was 11:40 when we arrived at the Main Street Diner in Quartzsite. Figuring that we would be busy later we started by having our lunch. On Thursday’s Lunch Menu they serve what they call a Cowboy’s Nachos. They make their own Kettle Potato Chips covered with their own Nacho Blend. When you start eating them you just can’t stop until they are all gone. They were that good and we were both very satisfied. We had left in such a hurry we forgot the camera at Home so there is no picture but I’ll get one in the future.

After checking how busy the Main Street Laundromat was we got our Laundry from the truck and were on our way in when we ran into Wayne and Sue our neighbours. They were there to get some washing done as well. Once the Washers were going we had a chance to talk. They left with their Laundry wet with plans for the Sun to dry it on their lines. It only took Twenty-Five Minutes in the Dryers before Kathy and I started folding it all. 

After leaving the Laundromat our next stop was the Quiet Times Greeting Card Shop to pick up Packages that had been shipped to us. The place was busy enough that there was a line up of people getting things. They were surprised that we had Five Packages in my name. Judging from the weight and size we didn’t think everything was here. Since they were closing shortly all they could say was to check our tracking numbers. 

The first thing we did after getting back Home was to open all the Windows, Vents and Door. The outside temperature was only 63 F (17 C) but inside the temp was in the 80’s. Once everything was inside the next thing I did was to go On-Line to check all our Tracking Numbers and the Package Contents. Some of the things that we thought had not arrived had been added with other things and a few things we were hoping for are still in the Mail. One item we had no Tracking Number for and were surprised to receive the new power cord for our Weboost
Pizza Hot off the Grill.
With only a slight breeze it was perfect to cook a Pizza on our Weber Q. Preheating our 12” Pizza Stone then adding a Store-Bought Pizza on a 12” Pizza Pan it took 30 Minutes and it was perfect. 

Even though I totally missed the Sunrise I managed to get a few nice Sunset pictures today. Thanks for following along, feel free to leave a comment and click on the pictures to enlarge them. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. You just gave me a great idea. Reheating our pizza on the barbecues!!! Glad you are feeling better!!

  2. I think the sleep in did you both wonders. Sleep can cure a lot of ailments. I know many times I go to bed aching so bad I think I'll not be able to walk the next day. But after a good night's sleep, I'm ready to go at it again.

    Loved the sun shining through the trees.

  3. It is great to get up after a good nights sleep and feel better. Tom and I are both starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
