Off They Go

Gina and Rollie took their time leaving us this morning but pulled out about 11:30am.  It was a very sad leave taking and it has been a sad day around here!  We wish them safe travels as they head for home.

Has anyone noticed the little WeatherBug widget at the top left of our blog??  This morning it read MINUS 30 degrees!!!  I decided then I would stop complaining about the wind and colder temps AZ is supposed to get this weekend!

Michael hauled us a load of water today and got the grill propane bottle filled.  I replaced the zipper in his favorite down vest—Michael is extremely cold natured for a man and almost always wears a vest, winter or summer.  I know it is extremely hot if he doesn’t have the vest on first thing in the morning.  The new zipper doesn’t look as good as the old but it will do for a vest he wears when doing grubby things such as changing the oil.

I tried a new grilled chicken recipe for late lunch/early supper—I found the recipe on the Pioneer Woman blog.  It was so good!  When we were in Yuma the other day I purchased a whole pineapple and today I marinated some of the sliced pineapple and grilled it with the chicken—YUM!!!

That’s it for our day in the desert—a quiet, sad day.


  1. Yes - we felt every degree of that cold this morning and it is forecast again for tomorrow morning. Then it is "supposed" to warm up.

    We are planning to leave tomorrow after it warms up a little bit - if it warms up a bit.

    I am keeping Rollie and Gina in my prayers for safe travel. Although I don't know them except from their blog, I know they are angels on wheels.

  2. It's always sad to see good friends leave but I'm sure they'll be back to see you as soon as they can.

  3. A sad day..we feel your pain..hopefully tomorrow will be a wee bit better!..have a nice quiet weekend!

  4. We even had only 9 F here this morning!!! That is sooo unusual for us. We had a hard time getting the house warm. Cliff got up in the middle of the night to put another log on the fire. One more night of the cold and then it's supposed to get better. Wish I was in Arizona ☺☺

  5. Sorry it was a sad departure for Gina and Rollie...I pray they had safe travels.
    I too love the Pioneer Woman blog. She has some great recipes!
    Hoping for a happier weekend for y'all. Kathy
