Not much going on, enjoying our last few days here in the sun.

Where are we today ?
       Just another sunny Arizona day, clear blue skies and perfect temperatures. What's not to like? Really enjoying my early morning walkabouts, the warmth of the early morning sunshine is just wonderful.
       I took a few pics of an interesting bird this morning but the lighting was not right so did not turn out. I wish they would have.
       Then we headed into Benson to our book exchanges and searched out a Country Music and Poetry  festival thats in the area. Thought it would be fun, but is a very small town event on a ranch in the desert. And after checking things out it appears most of the fun things happening would be late at night and relatively expensive with local bands. We are not really late night people any more, especially out on the backroads here in the desert. Think it is more geared to the local young people in the area.

       Next was to go to our favourite book exchange in town, but heck, she was closed today, for some reason, no problem she will be open tomorrow. Then we back home for a light lunch and putter around a while. I fiddled with our bike cover, then we had a chance to enjoy our books in  the sun, shade, sun, shade with the light breeze that just kept us moving about.

         About 4 pm a nice "Happy hour" with our friends Rob and Pat then time to fire up our Weber Q. Grill a couple salmon burgers, and zucchini slices.
add to that the leftover macaroni salad from our broasted
 chicken the other day and we had wonderful supper.
         That was it for our fun day hope you enjoyed yours too.
         Thanks for dropping by and hope y'all come back again.
     
         Our counter did not show up but only 19 days left and we be back to Ontario, sure hope it warms up there.

  2. The darned weather could go either way. We have had snow around the first of April, so it's a crap shoot. Maybe you'll bring the warmth back with you. That would work.

    1. As long as the snow is gone and it above freezing we can deal with that.

  4. When we're in the warm desert sun, it's hard to imagine other places aren't quite as warm. You might even have to dig out those long pants and sweatshirts before you make it back across the border. Enjoy those Arizona days while you can..

    1. I am sad to say the long pants and sweat shorts will be on before we get home.

    1. All I can tell you it was rummaging around in the bush, about the size of a sparrow, kinda gray but had a red head. Does that help?
