Amazing springtime Sunday weather here in a wonderful park in Arkansas.

Where are we today ?

        What a  wonderful day we have in store for us. After a good nights sleep up early as usual. Checked e mails and stuff, waiting for the sunrise and a nice walkabout the park. Down by the lake/ponds and love the morning mist over the water. Looking to see  if I can spot the resident alligator., It is only a bab about 4 ft long, but all the times I looked dud not have any luck.


just  a 100 yards from our site 
    They have 20 rental cabins here on the water. they all look wonderful.
love the porches and rocking chairs on each one
larger cabins as well
     About 9 am I (took a drive out and around a few back road over to the Millwood state park. Passed by some wonderful blossoms on the trees, yup it is spring time!
      This state park looks so nice, lots of great sites  with full hookups , a boat launch ramp and many people out on the water on a perfect day for fishing on the lake.
channel to the lake
       On my way home passed a few more blossoms.
         Then walkabout our park for a  bit and the soon time for lunch/ brunch.
       Now it is a Sunday and a treat we used to do every Sunday. Bacon and eggs. So fired up our Weber Q, shredded some baked potatoes we had in the fridge. Fried up a bit of bacon. fried the taters then the eggs on our grill mat. The weather was perfect for it 80f by 11 am and no wind. just gotta do it !  Not a big deal for me when I use to cook up 25 dozen eggs for breakfasts, almost every Saturday morning for 10 years.
our grill mat sure works really well for some things
and this is one of them
why go out when I can cook it better at home
for a lot less money?
 
very tasty brunch for us
       Now the rest of the day was putter around, walkabouts, enjoy our e-readers in the shade. Very hot in the sun and no wind, this is what we are here for, warm sunny weather.
perfect afaternoon
         Between ready and walking I did a few maintenance things. Clean and lube our levelling jacks as well as our electric steps, that I like to do a 3-4 times a year.
this is the life
     About 4 pm thought I wanted fire up one of our air conditioners. Opps nothing! Not the front one and not the rear one. Hmmm.. Looks like our thermostat not working again. So plan B.  Take it a part like I have done in the past and  spray it with  this electronic cleaner as you can see below. Did all that and let it sit for a bit , reassembled and now all is good once again. We have air conditioning and heat, when we need it. Only ran the A/c for a about and hour and now very comfortable.
        Enjoying our reading, a couple dropped by to chat for a bit with their doggies, to say hi again.  Missed a pic cause I was fooling with the thermostat.
        Soon time for  supper tonight turkey burger for Suzie and a Chirozo burger for  me. (the fresh chirozo I bought from the butcher in Borrego Springs California )and I made burgers for me, to spicey for Suzie.
our Weber Q does the trick again
burgers loaded and a salad, we fed up !
     Just another nice hot spring day for us, the reason that we are living this lifestyle.
     Thanks for stopping on by and hope y'all had a wonderful day too !

Where have we been this Winter

  1. I'll also plug your CRC Electronic Cleaner, I follow it with a coating of dielectric grease and the cleaning seems to last longer than you report ... of course that could be my mild climate :) On those warm days it sure is nice to be able to cook outside. BTW - the crowds in BS were not worth the effort to pick up some chorizo, it's pretty common in the local markets. Safe Travels!

    1. I will keep that in mind Jeff., the cleaning usually goo for a year our two, nice easy fix. I like to cook outside as much as I can year round. Other than in the southwest good chirozo is hard to find.

  3. Great pictures of the green grass, trees, flowers, and the water. In a couple of weeks we will be gone from the desert area and we will miss it. Then as we travel east and north we will start getting anxious to see the forest and Lake Michigan. The best of both worlds.

    1. We do have the best of both worlds, miss the desert but do enjoy all the greenery a lakes as well. When to gets too hot there you will be glad to be heading back north.

  4. Sounds like summer already in Arkansas. Our weather here in Missouri, changed to cool and rain for the next few days. Sure it will be the same in Illinois when I get there later today. Good luck getting a picture of that resident alligator.

    1. It is perfect weather , no complaints here. I will keep looking but they are pretty elusive.
      About 10 more days before we head through Illinois.
