Catch Up Day

Having traveled long distances the last three days we were all glad for a home day!  Woke to the sound of rain on the roof and the very light rain continued most of the morning.  This afternoon we have some pretty strong wind gusts but not enough yet to make me take in the window awnings.  These awnings are one of the things I really love about this motor home—our 5th wheel did not have them.  The awnings shield the windows from the sun without having to block the view by closing the inside shades.

We are all including Dave having a cookout this afternoon late.  Jim volunteered to make a run into Parker for a few needed items.  Mike, Emmi and I took a walk and before we got back the rain got a little harder, just enough to get us fairly wet!  I whipped up some quick veggie soup for lunch (saving all my points for tonight) and made some Weight Watcher friendly spinach dip—I’ll let you know how it turns out. 


When Mike rolled the awning up the other night the strap became tangled and sucked up inside the awning—uh, oh, now there is no way to get the awning back out.  Jim and Mike climbed up on the roof and shoved the awning out with their feet while I stood on the ground and looked for an appearance of the elusive strap—found it and was able to get everything back in it’s place.  Success!

Michael woke this morning with a sore neck and shoulder so he and Emmi are examining the backs of they eyelids.  I have been reading cookbooks and surfing on the internet.  We are trying to figure out where we are going next. 

today2 The desert is becoming so green and the moisture we got sure helps—we even have green grass on the desert floor in places!

A big thank you to Al from the Bayfield Bunch for suggesting Live Write and to Ellie for showing me the ropes.  I love it!  Inserting photos is so much easier than with Blogger Dashboard.  Just have to figure out how to make it auto save!
