Mon. Jan.9 Another great day!

Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer,
 since August 2006 

 Where are we Today ?

         Another wonderful, warm, sunny day! Does it get any better? don't think so. An awesome sunrise, blue skies and almost hot, no wind.
nice sunrise
        Coffees and walkabouts just enjoying the scenery, exercise and fresh air. I made a quick trip to town for some supplies to make a big pot of chili for happy hour. We chatted with a couple of our friends and went to see if Elmer and Claudia's, pet parrot "Roadrunner" was outside in her cage. Not right now but we got to meet here anyway, she is 13 years old.Probably shy towards strangers because she can talk a blue streak we have been told. They hand fed her as a baby.

Ailene and Don's patio room, nice comfort for a desert setting.
        The Geothermal plant behind us uses the hot mineral waters and steam to produce electricity.
        I whipped up the chili and just let it simmer while we relaxed in the shade with our books for a while, with birds chirping in the bushes around us.
nice day

snacks?  for happy hour
        Well we had the meal snack again for happy hour, a pot of chilli, veggies, dips, crackers and cheeses and some delicious chocolate truffles for desert.

        Now the sun's gone down and we are inside nice and snuggly warm with a book and computing we looked out a noticed a beautiful orange moon rising in the east. We started the day with a nice sunrise and ended with a nice moonrise, love it.

  1. Glad you are having a great time there. Does the entire group get together for an 'early diner' or just select few?

  2. Contessa:

    Not sure how it evolves, sometimes snacks and sometimes lotsa food, we never know for sure, depends on what's going on during the day. The chicken soup started it with Claudias leftover chicken, Vegetable soup Ailene cleaning out her fridge, my chili to use up the two lbs of fresh hamburg I bought to make meatloaf. Today not much I think.

  3. We are sure enjoying your adventures, George !!

  7. Love your sunrise and moonrise pics! We get that here over the lake all the time, nice and flat and nothing to get in the way of the view! Can't get enough of it! Even looks fabulous when the lake is frozen!
