Warn sunny day, windy, yup, car issues looked at and really enjoyed the day.

Where are we today ? 
clic a pic to enlarge it
        Was a very warm night and gonna be a nice sunny day, but windy. No problem got out for a nice walkabout as the sun was rising.
        Then at 7:30 am I headed into Benson to get an oil change on our car, at the Super Lube Express .And while there they checked out the thumping in the font end of our car. And just what I thought the sway bar needs to be replaced, kinda worn out. Considering this Saturn is 16 years old and over 500,00 kms (310,00 miles) on it not too bad. No major repairs and still runs like a charm.
heading back home  to Quail Ridge   
after the lube got a free car wash,
still in amazing shape
           Back home for a light lunch and a few walkabouts, enjoying these warm sunny days. It was windy but we can find spots to stay out of the wind. The sunshine is what we are here for. Most of the day was in the mid 60's f , ok, we may need some warmer clothes but sure beats what we could have back home.
nice walking to the back area, some nice seasonal sites here
gotta love thus Retro Trailer back here
      Below the sentry tree that was so tall and proud last fall has finally bit the dust, this was HUGE.!
        While outside enjoying the sunshine and reading a couple walked by we met the other day walking with Sandy. And  Suzie got a doggie fix. They are from the UP where Tom and Deb are from Apparently they live just down the road and think they go to the same church. They have seen their Stinger B. Now to ask me their names again? But their dog is Scoby do! Not a chance. sorry this old brain does not remember names, never has.A dog's name though.
doggie fix for Suzie
Scooby do
        Yesterday Sandy dropped off some Kale for us, that we had tried the other day at their place . These Kale Chips,we really enjoyed this so I whipped up a batch and they are amazing. Gonna do them again. For the easy recipe you can click HERE or my recipe blog top right sidebar.
crunchy. tasty healthy and addictive 
a wonderful warm sunny day
we seen most the day here outside , out of the wind
enjoying our reading between walks
        Git a phone cal from the Super Lube in Benson our part is in for the car so I will head beck in the mornings and this repair taken care of. Don;t want to loos our left from wheel on our way home we have to tow this car over 2.000 miles to get there, better safe than sorry.
         Soon time for supper, for a treat tonight gonna grill some of these smoked sausage to go with a Mexican rice  that I found in the cupboard and finish the rest of our very tasty fresh asparagus.
not long on the Q, they are smoked
this hit the spot, very tasty
 and enough leftovers
 for a light lunch
Supper done and I managed to catch a bit of a nice desert sunset
        Another wonderful desert day , sunshine, clear blue skies and no complaints here. Now tomorrow morning we may have a bit of snow not something we wanna see. But it won't stay long
Gonna hang out here till we get the part for Suzie's computer and get it fixed. Who knows how long that will be, hope fully we can get outta here early next week. We can stay here just need to move sites, no problem. Our plans are written in chalk anyway we still have over a month to get back home.
        Wannna  thank you for stopping by and hope you had a wonderful day as well.

  2. Those Saturns are amazing cars. I had two of them. I wish they still made em!
    Hope the snow doesn't materialize. We had some rain in Q today and the low will be below zero. Don't think it will snow though. I'm getting RV Lifestyles to install a heater just like yours! Do you want the commission? :-)

  3. Kale? I have it in our garden and yet have to find a way to make it palatable other than in a smoothie! It'll be nice to have your Saturn back 100%, does it log mileage while being towed? 300k seems like a lot of miles. If you need some more kale let me know :)

    1. The kale is actually pretty good like this, your should try it, also nice topping for our salads.
      It does not log while towing have actually driven it 160,000 miles towed the rest, everything else gets the wear except the engine

  4. Sounds like you're getting things wrapped up for the start of your homeward trek. Reminds me I should get an oil change on the Jeep while I'm close to a big city.

    The weather sure has been fickle the last week or so. But, I think the warm weather is just around the corner.

    1. Yes Doug we are on our way getting your jeep serviced is a good idea.
      We will be looking around some corners for nicer weather.

  5. Well if you have to be "stuck" somewhere waiting on a computer part that is not a bad area to be in. Hope the snow does not materialize. We did see some along the side of the road when we drove up to Julian on Sunday and that is as close as we care to get to it.
    Okay, you do know that Tom and I are now curious as to who it was from the UP but, since, I have the same name remembrance problem...I understand not remembering their names. Stay warm.

    1. No problem staying here for us, anyway just have to move campsites.
      I don't mind seeing remnants of snow just not too much of it, lol...
      If I see them again I will try and get their names and write it down.

  6. No snow here, but lots of rain and it's pretty chilly!

    I hate it when those tall beauties fall over. They just don't have the root system to support the height.

    1. No snow here either just a light rain, that's ok.
      It is sad to see them topple over this one was so tall too.

    1. Think you would like these a tasty alternative snack.
      We did find a nice spot to enjoy the sunshine. The snow fluffies did not stay on the ground here and that is just fine.

  10. Not good to see your wheel passing you on the highway, good catch on the car's needed repairs. Money well spent. :c)

    1. The noise was bothering me and I figured I knew what it was and wanted it checked by people we trust. Things do wear out and it is either repair or replace . would much rather repair a good vehicle.

  11. Glad you got the car fixed. Always nice to have those things completed in a timely fashion.

    Hopefully no snow fell, it's too early to think about that issue!!! We'll be thinking about it soon enough when mid March rolls around won't we?

    Enjoy your stay there.
