There hasn’t been much happening to write about. On Sunday the temperature took a dive and although it was sunny we only had a high of about 63F (16C), a bit cooler than normal. I don’t like temperatures in the 80’s so I would rather have the cooler weather than hot and humid.

Kel, Tim and Cara had a good trip to Ottawa and didn’t get the snow that was forecast so had a good drive back and forth, I was glad to hear from her that the trip was fine.

Our friends on Vancouver Island sent us a couple of pictures of all the snow they are having there – glad it’s them and not us! You guys should hurry up and come south where there isn’t any snow!!

Vegetables Growing in the Yuma Area

On Sunday we stopped to see our friends from Calgary, it was nice to catch up with them again. They are in another park so we don’t see them too often but it is nice to catch up once in a while.

We have been out doing a bit of shopping, we went to Marshall’s and John got a pair of Clark shoes for $29 and I got a pair of Naturalizers for $25, how can you argue with those prices! I have been looking for a new vacuum, I bought a Dirt Devil Featherlite last fall and didn’t like it at all, I felt like all it was doing was blowing the dirt around. Today I found what I was looking for, a Shark Navigator, it has had really good reviews so here’s hoping it is a lot better.

The showerhead started leaking this morning when I had my shower so that was another thing on the list – seems like there is always something!

I went out this morning and got my bar bells for the pool exercises so am now all ready to go. I am not sure if I will get there on Friday as we might go to Mexico that day to see about glasses and the dentist.

Tomorrow we get the truck and trailer washed and they sure do need it – they are totally filthy.

And so ends more great gifts of days and we look forward to another good tomorrow.

That is cool for Yuma, we had an 83deg. day today.

I bought a little upright, with a collapsible handle and onboard hose and tools, Hoover Nanolite at Walmart over 2 years ago.($50) It really is light weight, and sucks up the pet hair out of carpet like I could never believe.
But it isn't really great on hard floors, as it seems to blow the dust forward, which it doesn't do on carpet, so I have a little Shark canister for that.
I, too, looked at a lot of reviews before I bought them.
