This morning was nice and cool with cloudy skies, so we sat outside, me reading and Angel guarding. That Roadrunner didn’t stay long, neither die the bunny. So far, other than the one tanker after midnight, only Adrian, the company man has shown up.
Since my last post, it has been busy during the day, not much in the evening and a few tankers at night. I’m really getting tired of the caliche dust. I leave the door open early in the morning for a bit of fresh air, but after an hour or so, the gate across the road begins to get busy, so I have to close it and let the A/C run. I stay outside until it starts to warm up and when most everyone has signed in, then I go inside too, where I spend the rest of the day.
just a couple of the big things coming through the gate
The highlight of Friday was defrosting the refrigerator, freezer and the portable freezer. I thought that I would get that done before Evelyn comes today. In my past life, (pre RV), that chore was one of my least favorite things to do. It still isn’t in my top 10, but it is a lot easier and doesn’t take too long either. It has to be done, especially out here where it it is so hot and it helps keep boredom at bay for a little while. This morning, I have already done two loads of wash and just need to do the dishes and then I’m all caught up on the chores. Don’t cha just love this life style, same old chores,but they don’t take as long.
Yes, my sister will come today with my mail and a few groceries, but most of all we will be able to celebrate her birthday, which is today. I made a pineapple upside down cake in my Redi Set Go cooker. I haven’t used it for awhile, so it’s a good excuse to get it out. Sure beats using the oven. A Jiffy Cake Mix will make two small layers made individually. Each took only 5 minutes. Definitely made in a Jiffy. With whipped cream to top it off, it will be a nice dessert.
As an after thought I drizzled some cherry juice on top of the whipped cream.
In one of the comments Tom and Lynn suggested using a container to catch the water dripping from the A/C, so I used an extra Frisbee and weighted it down with rocks. I believe that the local bees are really enjoying it. They are taking baths too.
I still want to figure out how I can move it out where I can watch the activity from the window. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see the bees.
Birdies, Bunnies and Bugs, ( BBBs)
I guess that I can add another B to the things that Angel guards me from, Bugs!
The spider, she tracked until it went away, but the grasshopper, no interest!
I finished another painting. I’m sure some of you will remember seeing this flower on Judy’s ( Travels with Emma ) blog. Thank you, Judy for letting me download it. You take amazing pictures.
As I close this evening, it has gotten really windy and I’m getting a lot of the dust from the gate across the road. I think that my voice is changing because of so much of it in the air, so it’s a good thing that I’m out of here in three, yea, three weeks. I hope that you all have had a great weekend.
Thanks for visiting
