Nice Days in Yuma

It’s been a few days since I’ve blogged but we have been keeping busy. New Year’s day was spent getting organized and being surprised at what we had left here, just like Christmas!

Wednesday we did more grocery shopping, sure is a pain without the trailer and the food in it as we have to pretty well start from scratch getting in the staples let alone meat, veggies, fruit etc. Not cheap!!

Thursday I did some laundry and puttered around while John went out to get a few things as well as a TV, at least now we will be able to watch Downtown Abbey’s new series starting on Sunday night. Diane & Ben invited us for happy hour so we had a nice visit and Gail and Don and Gail’s friend Fran were also there. Shortly before going over to Diane & Ben’s I was outside and saw Fred, across the street in his shed so he came out to the front and Valerie, his wife, came out, John came over and Sharon & Bob came home and joined us for a good chin wag. We certainly have nice neighbours!

Yesterday we went to the outdoor market, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Best Buy, Marshall’s, Target and Walmart – sure got shopped out and lots of walking. When we went to the market both John and I took our canes – we looked like a couple of old crocs but we managed to walk around for almost an hour, a record for me.

We were looking for a new toilet for my bathroom as the one in there is leaking a bit around the bottom so we found one we thought would do the trick, and that is higher than the one that was in there, so John went out this morning and bought it and is now in the process of installing it – lucky him.

The weather is still cool, only about 15-17C (60-64F) but the sun shines brightly so we aren’t complaining as it is better than home.

Tomorrow we are planning on going to the indoor market then to the afternoon matinee to see Lincoln, another tough day in paradise!

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