Another perfect mild night again about 52f at 5am. Think we can enjoy that. I wanted a few groceries so just before 8 am I made a quick trip to the Del Sol in Yuma, easy in and easy out back here by 8:30 no traffic and no crowds just the way I like it.
Got a few walkabouts this morning chatted, with a few people including Bill and Dee, Bill is heading back to Mexico for his crown today, hope all that goes well for him.
|Before noon it was getting quite warm again and has to be|
with Suzie back in shorts, partly in the shade too!
|repainting the signs doing a great job too|
|Patsy and Bill, he was looking for clouds in the sky , could not find any|
At about 12:30 we went to Lin's Grand Buffet in Yuma
for our favourite Chinese buffet. With Bill, Patsy, Roger and Sue. Only about a 20 minute drive so we got there at 1 pm after most of the lunch rush but still busy, no lineup really just a few minutes to pay 2 seniors for lunch with water $19.00 for good deal considering the choices of great tasty fresh food they have. We have been here many times over the years and never been disappointed. This is must for us when we are in the area.
|this the place|
We were seated right away our drink orders taken immediately and away we went to attack the buffet. Today we did not have breakfast, lunch or snacks so gonna do it all in one place.
|my breakfast salad included an egg|
and a chicken wing
|off course we are eating|
|then I had a snack Hot and sour soup and Sushi |
|lunch, fish , chips, shrimp , broccoli ,|
and a chicken wing
|supper, chicken, shrimp, pork,stir fry, rice,veggies,|
I already ate another chicken wing
yes I do love my chicken wings
|no room left for the grill or a steak|
Desert, lots of choices, our friend Pat Aljoe loves these bananas, too sweet for me. So many choices cakes, pies, fruit, ice cream oh my these bananas for Pat.
|these are too sweet for me|
|But I did have room for a bit of soft ice cream Rob Aljoe's favourite, |
This little bit can fill in the empty spaces in my tummy.
We had our fill some fun conversation and time to head back, we started to take the back roads but I made a bobo, turned too soon and ended back onto I-8 a bit of traffic back up but no big deal. Back home by 3 pm.
|passed some of these fields harvesting broccoli maybe?|
Home now even too full for happy hour so we just vegged out, Enjoyed the shade of our awning did get up to 85f (29C), no wind and clear blue skies. More relaxing reading time , what a perfect day for it too. ate an very tasty, Breakfast, lunch and supper. Because it was warm enough I wanted exercise our air conditioners, not that we really needed them but rain them each for about a half an hour, just because we could.
|Suzie did the Mary Poppins thing wth the umbrella|
gave her some extra shade
|Umbrella right where the sun is|
I did get a few more walkabouts done and finished a J.A Jance book then began another one of hers. Don't need to make supper tonight so get more reading and walking time, bonus! Got in 3 miles to help work off our buffet.
|just started this one another great book|
Then what a great way to wrap up the day again with another wonderful sunset, we are so blessed to be able to enjoy these most every night here in the southwest.
A fun day lunch buffet with friends and more great winter weather. Much better than back home . My sister sent me this weather for today below Kitchener is the area where we call home and the coldest day on record in the last 100 years. Sure glad we are here and not there.
|Kitchener is only 10 Miles for our home area,|
-24.2 c is -11.5 f
That was it for us just enjoying the weather and good times with friends, and so glad that we can enjoy this amazing lifestyle. Nice enough to sit outside until almost 7:30 wrap up this posting and head inside for the night maybe cath a movie on tv, We have lots of choices.
Hope you had a great day and kept warm wherever you might be.
Thanks for stopping on by.

Great day in this wonderful area. loving the heat too!ReplyDelete
Lin's was wonderful, as usual, it is now one of our 'must stops' too when in the area.

Yes Roger we sure did.Delete
What a great day. Some amazing food there on those plates. Fantastic sunset!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Deb it was awesome , hope enjoy your locations as we love the areas around there.Delete
Lin's is a Yuma landmark for sure, however it's too much good food for lunch - IMHO. We will hit one of their Cactus League locations on occasion. At least the Weber got a break :)ReplyDelete
Continue to enjoy your prime location and those beautiful days.
It is a Landmark, we like to go for lunch and enjoy a feast then have the hole day to work it off works much better for us than going to bed on a full stomach.Delete
The Weber got a break and still enjoy this area and amazing weather.
Wonderful sunset pictures.ReplyDelete
Yes, we are glad/lucky to have escaped the cold. I know the Upper Peninsula of Michigan as been recording below zero, also.
Thanks love the desert sunsets in this area.You guys got outta there just in timeDelete
I have to believe that Canadian weather report generated a smile of satisfaction as you sat around in shorts under the awning.ReplyDelete
Oh yes Larry it sure did, so glad that we can enjoy this lifestyle!Delete
What a great looking day and especially lunch with good friends . Those bananas and strawberries sauce sure looked wonderful I could almost taste them from here George . Rob says thanks for the taste of the ice cream . Lol. Looking at the pictures almost made me feel full. Always lots to choose from at Lynn’s to eat .ReplyDelete

Now I know why Canadians go south for the winter. BRRRRRRR
Nancy it is amazing and worth a stop for sure.Delete
Yes it is cold back there, so glad that we can enjoy this lifestyle.
When you spend most days living the "South Beach" diet, you can afford to have a meal like that once in a while. Gotta love that weather!!ReplyDelete
Once in a while is ok, back to our healthy eating style again after that.Delete
Yes we are loving the weather!
We've driven by Lin's many times and wondered how good the food might be. Now we know! It will go on our list of places to try.ReplyDelete
I am sure you will love it the best we have ever been to, so much good fresh foodDelete
Wow, after reading the Canadian weather you smiled from ear to ear being so far away from that type of winter weather...BRRRRR.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a lot of fun having that Chinese buffet with friends and good food.
That is so true, we are really glad to be here and not back home right now. The buffet was excellent as always especially with friends even better.Delete
We're heard a lot of good compliments about Lin's. There's one close in Phoenix. We need to try it.ReplyDelete
Don't know about the Phoenix one by this one is awesome.Delete
