Thankfully the wind died down overnight and today was a bright, sunny day although it was a bit cooler than it has been – only a high of 71F but we are NOT complaining. It wasn’t hot enough for me to get excited about a swim so I passed for today.
On Saturday John stopped on his way home from the gun show to take some pictures of the flowers growing in the dessert but when he went to download them he had the wrong setting on the camera and they didn’t turn out so today he wanted to go and take some more. I wanted to go to Wal Mart and pick up a few groceries and we needed to fill the barbecue propane tank so off we went this afternoon to do all these chores; when we got to where John wanted to take the pictures of the flowers and he pulled out his camera there was a fair bit of muttering – turns out the battery was at home charging!! Someone was NOT a happy camper but fortunately my camera was in the truck so he used it to take some pictures.
When we got home I put the groceries away then sat out and read for a while, then went for a walk and stopped to check the mail as I figured the hydro bill would be there – sure enough it was and it was a real biggy - $15.85 for the month of February.
Dinner is now over, the dishes are done and it is time for a relaxing evening; and so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to the mystery of tomorrow.
