Our Location: BLM, Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, CA
A nice morning, I slept better and no Riley didn’t hit me with a hammer. I just somehow managed to sleep better. I was out the door around 6:30 AM finally warm enough for me to be out there without worry of aches later when I warm up.

A very amazing sunrise and I managed to snap a few pictures. In fact all of today’s pictures are sunrise this morning. I weeded them down to my favourite few so as not to overload anyone.
I walked pretty much to the Ogilby Road and back while taking sunrise pictures this morning and so I felt that was enough of a walk for me today. Riley opted for a day off of walking. Tomorrow I think I’ll head out again but limit myself to an hour out before heading back home. That may work better for me and I’ll just have to be wiser when I pick my destination instead of wandering where ever my feet take me.
It was a lazy day here, we didn’t do a whole lot but Riley managed to vacuum the Igloo and she even mopped the floors. She is such a big help and I appreciated all her efforts. I, on the other hand spent my time cleaning the Dogsled, windows, desert sand, dust, etc. You know how a vehicle loves to collect this desert dust. A black interior is not good at hiding the dust either.
I puttered around outside and did a few other house keeping chores before finally sitting down to read my book for a while. An off again, on again coolish breeze had me changing from long pants to short, to long, to short until I finally just gave up and stayed inside in short pants. Riley and I played a couple of games of Battleship this afternoon just to pass the time. A little bit more work to make lunch today as we enjoyed scalloped potatoes, salsa chicken, corn and of course Jello. We both had a pre lunch salad as well.
A call from dad to see how things were going. They had a huge snow fall Monday into Tuesday which was followed by freezing rain, followed by rain. Still lots of snow though and they are heading into a deep freeze with temps being around the -4F/-20C mark. Better them than us.
Two birthdays to make note of today. Well actually just one and a remembrance of another. A birthday wish to my oldest niece Amber, she is my sister’s daughter. Another year behind her and I’m sure she’s wondering where it’s gone. Amber is the mother of 3 children, 1 girl and 2 boys and works part time as a medical secretary. Happy Birthday Amber.

The remembrance is of my late Uncle Harry. Mother’s youngest brother. Harry was a very warm hearted man with a few issues but always willing to lend a helping hand and with a heart as big as the great outdoors. He is sadly missed.
So there you have it, our day here in the BLM land off of Ogilby Road. A quiet, lazy day without much to do. We like those days for certain. I hope you had a fantastic day where ever you may be, and whatever you may have been doing. Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time… take care, be safe,
