Our Location: BLM on Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, CA
A somewhat restless night last night for me. I have no idea why I have those nights. I was certainly tired enough to sleep but oh well.
|The beginning of sunset tonight.|
|You can see the not so defined image as it sinks slowly.|
A nice sunrise but I didn't get any pictures so you'll have to take my word for it. Today was a do nothing kind of day but of course we never do nothing, do we? However I did take the day off from walking, instead opting to make a turkey pot pie using fresh veggies and making up the recipe as I went along. It turned out well and thanks to George (Our Awesome Travels) for the idea of using crescent rolls for the crust instead of the actual crust. Riley doesn't like pie crust but enjoyed the pot pie with the crescent roll crust.
|The sky was more orange than it appears.|
|you can see the pink in the top of the picture and soon that will turn darker.|
The wind picked up this afternoon as we started packing away a few of our outside items in preparation for leaving in a few days time. We tend to pack up things we won't be using for the remainder of our stay to lighten the work load on moving day.
I did a bit of research this morning as well as spending time reading my book, Deadline by Sandra Brown. I finished the book this afternoon. It was pretty good, a very interesting twist or two in the plot kept one guessing in a spot or two. I've since started reading a Tony Hillerman book, The Wailing Wind based in the area in which we've passed through recently on our way to the southwest.
After our wonderful lunch we spent the rest of the day doing a bit of this and that, a bit of reading and a chore or two as well. Not an exciting day but we enjoyed it.
A few phone calls to Ontario tonight had us chatting with Courtney, message on Bradey's machine, and friend Linda. Very cold back in Ontario, Canada and will remain so for the next number of days. Courtney, who lives in Toronto says they are predicting between 10-30 cm /4-11 inches of snow. The temps are in the -16 to -20 C / 3 to - 4F range for the day time highs for the next week or so. Glad we aren't in Ontario.
Happy Birthday to son in law Matt. Matt turns 32 today. Matt is a research doctor and is currently working at York University in Toronto after a 2 year stint in Switzerland. Matt and Courtney started dating in high school and have been together ever since. We are fortunate to have Matt as part of our family.
Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Until next time...take care, be safe,
|Goodnight from California.|
