Thursday and another late Thanksgiving dinner with friends in the desert.

Where are we today
clic on a pic to enlarge it
          Over night cloud cover so it was much warmer last night about 40f  at 5 am much nicer. And the sunrise amazing at 7 am during my first walkabout for a few minutes, again because of the cloud cover.
gotta love the desert skies
        Shortly after 8 am I whipped into town for a few supplies, and stopped by the Library. To see if Gerry found it. And sure enough he was in his glory with the free wifi and all the computer terminals there.
       Back home to get a few things done here with Suzie, then time for a nice light lunch. And while she had a short nap I headed out for another walkabout enjoying the desert scenery. Got about 3 miles on today.
so many places to explore here
      Then a couple hours relaxing with our e-readers under our awning slightly out of the intense sun, Even though it was 60 f feels much warmer and was in shorts and t-shirts for a few hours.
what's not to love about this?
         About 3 pm over to Gerry and Melinda's to set up their Weber Q 2000 to grill a 1/2 Turkey we picked up yesterday. We all love Turkey so Gerry thought it would be great that we have a Thursday Dec 1st Thanksgiving Turkey dinner with them Mashed taters, gravy, cooked carrots, cranberry sauce with orange zest (recipe click HERE). Right here in the desert and was a great idea. Ans one dessert as well.

Where have we been this Winter


  1. Looks like you had another great day.
    We are somewhere around the corner in Quartzsite. Once we figure out where you are we'll stop in to say Hello.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Looks like another great meal and great friends to go along with it.

  3. Good looking plate of food. I'm not a big fan of plain ole turkey, but bought a 12 pounder while they were on sale, roasted it and Bev turned it into turkey salad which I really like.

    1. Thank Larry was very tasty.
      I do lotsa stuff with it, soup, turkey salad, hot turkey sandwiches, turkey casserole, lots of possibilities.

  4. Never can have too many Thanksgiving dinners. Yummy.

    1. Thant's for sure we are Thankful for this amazing lifestyle among many other things too.

  5. Wow, that turkey dinner looks delicious! :)

    1. It sure was too bad you weren't still here we had lots.

  6. Still pretty empty out there on the flats.

  7. Nice to see all that blue sky. We could use a bit of that right now. Glad you got to enjoy another Thanksgiving turkey, can never have enough turkey, especially with good friends.

    1. The blue skies and sunshine is why we are here, and enjoying the company with our friends and good food.
