Slow Day


Wednesday began with this sunrise behind Lupe and Janelle’s home. 

We got a few things done after fixing breakfast.  Even though we awoke a bit early, we stayed in bed until the sun came up to begin charging the solar panels.  Ted had to be at Sky Harbor Airport by noon.  We had a little time and I was in need of some new sandals,so we ran over to Arizona Mills Mall where there was a Sketchers store and I found exactly what I wanted and was out of there in about 15 minutes. 



Ted stayed in the  truck  with Angel as it was starting to get a bit warm.  He wanted to get something to eat before getting on the plane, so we went over to Tempe Market Place where there was a Best Buy.  I was having trouble charging my phone and I Pad  while in the truck.  We bought a charger with two USB outlets.  After that it was time for him to be at the airport.  I think that that part was hardest part of this trip, Ted leaving. Boo Hoo, but  I really didn’t cry.  I am so thankful that he was able to take the time to help me drive this far,and be with me to help with all that transpired on the way here.  THANK YOU, Ted!!!

From there I went home, but stopped  at my former church, Love of Christ Lutheran Church in Mesa.  I only knew one person there, the secretary, Darlene.  We visited for a few minutes and went on my way.  I did stop to get some fuel before I got back to “My Spot”, (paid $4.159—Thank you Betty for correcting me on my last post. can I blame it on being tired--- that’s my story and I’m sticking to it).

I really must be tired, because I actually took a two hour nap. Later, Heidi and her husband, Chris came over when she got off work.  She went through all the pictures that I still had, (that’s some of what Mellissa brought with her the day before).  Mellissa will come over on Friday with the kids and go through my STUFF to help me reduce the weight in my rig.  Heidi will be back to do the same. 

Before we knew it it was nearly 10:00 pm, said our goodbyes and I went to bed.

Thanks for visiting


Susan and Angel


  1. Good time for you to relax and unwind from that journey over here. Jim is still out fishing. I may not see much of him anymore. Still hoping we'll make it out to see your "spot".

  2. It's good you are safe and sound, and with friends and family. I'm glad to hear you are going to try to reduce the weight in your rig. Stay safe.

  3. Hey Susan,
    It really wasn't a correction so much as an OMG you paid $400+ to fill up?? :) Just wanted to know if you had extra tanks, fuel was stupid expensive or you were tired. :) Sounds like you're getting settled in. Yay!

  4. I'm just glad you got here safe. I will be coming out in a few hours. So how's the retired life treating you so far mom? I have another 30+ years before I can get to that point :(. I love you and was very happy Ted got to come out also. It was nice to be able to visit with him.

  5. Glad things are getting settled. I'm sure Ted was sad to say goodbye as well.

  6. Hi there Susan,

    Glad things got resolved for you with the hitch, what a pain in the backside! Oh well, every new adventure has it's hickups. Now that you have that out of the way, time to have some serious fun! :-) Take care! Eric and Carol

  7. Great pic of you and Angel. I'm so glad you're getting some rest. Sounds like you have a wonderful family and great friends.
