We have had a couple of quiet days and a couple of busy ones but all of them nice. On Saturday we went to the Peanut Patch and looked around and I got a huge cup of ice cream for $1.50 – boy it was good. John passed as his tooth was kind of sensitive so he didn’t want to irritate it with something really cold.

From there we went to the market and wandered around for a bit then a quick stop at Wal Mart and then on home where we had a quiet evening.

Sunday morning wasn’t too bad but then the wind picked up and by early afternoon it had clouded over and we knew we were going to get a storm. We had asked Jim & Sonia over for a drink so it was another inside happy hour and visit. Just as they arrived it started to rain and it really poured, with lots of thunder and lightning and even some hail just to make it exciting. Fortunately it was small hail so no damage done but poor John just cringes when it is hailing. I had put a pot roast in the slow cooker in anticipation of a bad grilling day so we had a nice dinner.

Monday was aquafit in the morning and we just kind of loafed the rest of the day other than a quick run to Fry’s for a few groceries.

Tuesday John left about 9 to pick up Dave and go to Mexico to get his tooth finished. Right after he left the wind picked up and it really blew hard all day, I had planned on doing a major cleaning while he was gone then a long walk but I passed on the walk as I didn’t really want to eat dirt while walking. So my day consisted of cleaning, talking on the phone to a friend and reading – tough life!

John didn’t get home until about 4 so had a long day but his tooth is done and he says it feels good. Apparently Dave didn’t mind all the waiting as he ordered new reading glasses and was able to pick them up before they left so he was happy he didn’t have to make another trip back to Mexico to get them. When John got home we made a quick run to Wal Mart to get some romaine and had a chicken cesar salad for dinner as it wasn’t a good night to grill with the wind howling.

This morning was cooler than usual and it was darn cold getting out of the pool after aquafit - I was glad to get home and jump into a hot shower. We met Janet & Dave at the Olive Garden for lunch – just love their soup, salad and rolls lunch, then Janet & I went our way and the guys went theirs. Janet & I managed to spend the rest of the afternoon checking out J C Penney, Target and Marshalls without doing a lot of damage to our wallets.

Tonight will be a quiet evening of reading and TV and hopefully the wind will die down tomorrow and it will be a warmer day.

And so ends a few more great gifts of days and we look forward to more wonderful days here in Yuma.
