Our Location: Near Tonopah, Arizona
(The last of my hiking photos)
A nice warm night in the history of our time here, we stayed above 50F/10C all night, yeah us. The sky didn’t look too promising this morning and so we decided to do a rainy day thing and do some errands. Little did we know that the day would turn out very warm, full of sunshine and spectacular.
|The snow on that mountain peak is now gone.|
After a ham quesadilla (of course with many other things as well, blended cheeses, salsa, celery, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and eggs too) for breakfast we loaded up the water jugs, garbage and ourselves heading toward Buckeye. I had an errand that wasn’t on the list but it was the first thing we did, I had the Big Dog’s tires rotated, I’ve been meaning to do it for a while now and today I just made up my mind. From there we headed off to Walgreens for water from their nice outside dispenser, and then to Fry’s for fuel ($2.65 per gallon), and some groceries. After that it was a Walmart stop for haircuts, and numerous other things, including groceries. We managed to find most things on the list and enjoyed the exercise.
|Not sure if it's a Saguaro family or a single, I didn't go check it out.|
Heading home we veered off of I-10 before we reached our Tonopah exit and instead jumped off at Wintersburg exit. They have a Dollar General and I wanted to pick some cleaner that our friend Lorne (A Place Called Away) mentioned. We found it in the big bottles but not in the spray bottle. No problem we’ll just use one of our empty ones. After that it was home and time to unload the Dogsled.
|The shadows make the views so interesting.|
When we got home the Igloo was swarming with flies, inside and out even before we got the groceries and water inside. We managed to get the groceries away and then I started with the swatter and the Raid can. I don’t normally use any bug spray but this was ridiculous, as it was last night just after dark, they seemed to find a way inside. So I closed the bedroom doors, vents, and windows, sprayed everywhere, and most especially around the slides. We didn’t spray in the living room/kitchen area as I don’t like doing so around food. Eventually I think we got most of them and then settled down to eat, do you know it was 4:30 pm? Where did the day go?
|It's gravel or sand on those rocks.|
After about an hour I opened the doors and vents to air the spaces out and sure enough it seemed to have done the trick. This evening I took the swatter outside and started around the door and took the spray to the underside of the slides again. Hopefully that helps us tonight. It’s crazy the number of flies here.
|Look at all that yellow, it's all flowers.|
So there you have it, our busy day and it was very busy. We hope you enjoyed your day where ever you were and doing whatever you were doing. Thanks for stopping by.
|Nothing quite like this view.|
Until next time… take care, be safe,
Nice to get those chores taken care of , but not fun with those flies, glad we don't have any here.ReplyDelete
I think we may head south sooner than we expected because of the flies. We wanted to get the chores done in case we decide to leave a few days early.Delete
Take care, be safe,
I am glad to finally hear you guys talking about warm things. It has been way too long for you. Thanks for the plug in your post, and I hope it works for you. Secret is to let it do its thing before scrubbing, but dont let the sun dry it. (So many rules lol).ReplyDelete
How about we meet somewhere and you can show how it's done? I'm a slow learner so you may have to take a day or two to show me. Hahaha.Delete
Take care, be safe,
Nice to get all those things done and then you have to wonder where the day went! Ham quesadilla sounds awesome! Those flies are horrible! Hope they get better for you two!ReplyDelete
The flies may send us further south sooner and so I wanted to be ready to go whenever the urge hits. I'm always surprised at how quickly the day passes.Delete
Take care, be safe,
