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.

Restless Night, Colder Then Home, Researching Old Blogs and Making Data Entries.

Our Location today is at the La Posa South, LTVA, Quartzsite, Arizona.

It was a good thing that we weren’t travelling today or we would not have gone very far. One of the side effects of Sleep Apnea is Insomnia and last night it was bad. One’s mind starts to race thinking of things to do, things they’ve done, things they are concerned about and even replaying an old song that hasn’t been heard in ages.
After spending more then Half The Night awake my back let me know at 6:30 that it was time to start my day. It was still dark outside but that didn’t stop me from getting things ready for breakfast, opening the Window Shades, turning our Blue Flame Heater on low and knocking off Three and A Half Difficult Cryptograms before Kathy came downstairs for breakfast. By the end of the day my eyes are so tired that it is impossible to solve those Cryptograms but when my eyes are fresh in the morning they are easy to solve. With the Cold Winds still blowing after breakfast I finished the Last Cryptogram before turning on my Computer.
The first thing I checked was The Weather Network to find that it was warmer back in Essex which is close to Wildwood RV Park where we stay mostly in the summer then it was here in Quartzsite. We could already hear the stronger North Winds gusting to around Thirty MPH rattling the Cables to our Solar Panels on the Roof.
Essex is near our Home Park.
London is where my sister lives.
The Freeze Warning is for Quartzsite tonight.
There wasn’t much we could do as we watched the occasional Dust Devil off in the distance but otherwise the air seemed clear of dust. Most people that were walking outside were bundled up with Coats, Hats and some with Gloves. After completing some inside chores we settled in to do some research on the Computers.
For lunch we had a nice Omelette along with an English Muffin as a filler and Yogurt Cup for dessert.

Both Kathy and I made Data Entries on different Spreadsheets we maintain before going back to more research some of which involved looking at Five Year Old Blogs. Wow have things changed that much?
Supper was simply Chicken and Wild Rice Soup along with Cheese Sticks then a piece of Pecan Pie for dessert. We took our hot drinks to the Computers until it was time to do the dishes. Because of the weather I haven’t had a chance to check the Connections on our Batteries so we are not taking any chances to run the Main Inverter too late in the evening until then.
Cloud-Free finish to a Blustery Day.
Since I didn’t sleep too well last night maybe I’ll do better tonight. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  2. Sleepless nights are tough but eventually we catch up.

  3. There's definitely a cold front going through. Nice you have a blue flame heater!!

  4. If it weren't for the winds it sure wouldn't feel so cold. Hope you sleep better tonight!

  5. Ah! I have insomnia but don't have sleep apnea. Leonard falls asleep the second his head hits the pillow and has sleep apnea. Go figure.

    Seems it pretty cool all over the country right now.

  6. Not a fun night when the brain will not shut down and take a rest. Hope tonight is better.
    Living with the dust the trade off for being in the wonderful desert.
    Stay warm and safe.
