Sunshine, hot, and an up and down day....

Where are we today ?
       We had a great day here in Benson AZ. with the exception of the news about the passing of James (Butterbean) Carpenter. I did a posting earlier today about this unfortunate tragedy here.
        Just another sunny day and not a lot on our agenda. Thinking about the short visit we had with Butterbean and Joyce, then getting chores done. So glad that we took the time to stop for a short visit with them.
         More laundry, more walkabouts, enjoy the wonderful life that we have. We take everyday , one day at a time. You never know when our time is done.
beautiful cactus garden here in the park
       Then we do what we do best in the afternoon. Enjoy reading our books in the warmth of the Arizona sunshine.  Until its time for me to fire up our Weber Q. Suzie's request was a pork loin roast and grilled sweet potatoes. Yep, can do that and grilled a cored apple to go with the pork.
our Weber Q 100 sure does a great job
         Added some steamed broccoli with cheese and a tomato slice sure hit the spot. Oh yes we do have a lot of leftovers too.
so tasty
then we have an awesome Arizona Sunset
         Does it get much better? Think not. 
         Glad you could stop by for visit today. It was an up an down down day with the news of Butterbean Carpenter but we do have some great memories of him. We became very close in a short period of time.
        Hope you had a great day too! 85f here...

  1. We didn't have the beautiful sunset tonight but we did have the nice warm weather. Butterbean's death just makes me want to tell everyone I know how much they mean to me because like you said, you never know when it's time.

  2. Sorry for the loss of your blogging friend. Yes, life is precious and one should live it as best one can. Sounds like he lived it well.

    Yes, the rising temperatures are sure appreciated. We took advantage and hiked a long ways in Lake Havasu City this afternoon. Awesome sunset and truly enjoyable evening outdoors.

    1. Now we are getting the weather we came here for, enjoy.

  3. Just from following Blogs over the years and the events that suddenly happen makes you realize how we never know when it's our time, enjoy today as we have no idea if we have a tomorrow. Living everyday happy is what counts and how we treat others for sure. Beautiful sunset picture you posted and as always a great Weber Q dinner. Have a great Tuesday!

    1. We do enjoy every single day, no matter how nice the weather is.

  4. Welcome to Arizona and sorry to hear about your friend. We have to live everyday to its fullest for sure!

  5. Glad the weather is so warm for you guys ……. actually a nice sunny day here too! Another great looking meal! Funny, I always leave hungry from your posts!

    Yup - sorry to hear about Butterbean - he looked to be/sounded like a super guy. Sad.

    1. So glad that we did meet him.
      Enjoy you sunny weather and a tasty supper too.

  6. Sorry for the loss of your friend. We're in Arizona and will be at Apache Junction for Christmas. How long will you be in that area? Would love to catch up with you.
