I think sleeping is becoming a habit with me and I’m very glad to say so. I’m enjoying the nights of uninterrupted sleep and feeling much more like myself in the mornings than I have of late. A good start to the day for sure.

We were up and at ‘em this morning before 8 AM, enjoying a leisurely morning before our expected company arrived. We puttered around doing a bit of tidying up and the usual morning stuff. I started to read blogs and answer comments when my computer cord decided it was tired and wanted to permanently retire. So I couldn’t charge my laptop and had to stop doing my regular morning reading. I knew I had another cord but I couldn’t remember where it was and so I hunted and hunted in the spots I was certain I would find it. Can you guess? I didn’t find it. However Riley offered up a suggestion and wouldn’t you know it, there it was. So I’ve dodged the bullet with that good find and can finish what I started this morning and not have to worry about getting a cord quickly as this one will work until I can pick one up at my leisure. Otherwise I wouldn't have been blogging until I picked up a new cord.

Knowing our visitors would be arriving mid morning we were outside enjoying the sun when we spotted a plume of dust coming our way, and sure enough before long a once nice black jeep, now a lovely desert dust colour, turned in to our spot and out popped Tom and Deb (Celebrating the Dance). We plopped ourselves down in the sun/shade and just started chatting. Before we knew it the time had flown by and it was middle afternoon before we said our goodbyes and watched them drive off. Our paths have crossed slightly a couple of times in the past and we've had a couple of ten minute 'hi, how are you?' type of interludes but today we actually managed to sit down and visit. Riley and I truly enjoyed our time with this wonderful couple, we laughed, we shared, and from our view we just had a really great visit. Riley and I are looking forward to crossing paths with them many times again in the years ahead. Thanks for the wonderful visit folks!!!!

After that it was time to cook some lunch and pack up the outside yard in preparation for tomorrow’s move. The sun was warm today and we enjoyed moving into the shade once all of that was finished. Our thermometer was well into the middle 80’s which would be about 28-29C for part of the afternoon. As a typical desert day as soon as the sun is down the air cools off and a bit of a breeze is kicking up, just enough to ruffle the leaves on the mesquite bush.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.

Until next time… take care, be safe,
