This morning instead of facing East and watching the sun rise over the mountains I decided to face West and watch the shadows move across the desert floor as the sun rose behind me. It was wonderful feeling the warmth of the sun on my back as I sat there.
Later in the afternoon we drove over to Parker so we could attend mass at Sacred Heart Parish. It is a lovely little church and the same priest who is the pastor at this parish is also the pastor for several mission churches including Our Lady Queen of Peace in Quartzsite.

After Mass we picked Lily's Mexican Food restaurant for dinner. I did a Yelp search and it had good reviews, four and a half stars. It was an order at the counter then seat yourself type of place but the food was good. Tom and I agreed we would go back again but probably not for a Saturday night out. It was a good choice for tonight, since, our next stop was Walmart to pick up a few groceries.
We turned back into La Posa South about 8:30PM. It is always an adventure finding our home in the pitch black. This is our third year parked on this pad so we do eventually come to the pile of rocks identifying our "driveway". As we turned in we could see the Stinger B lit up by the Jeep's headlights and we were home.

but of moments.
Moments to enjoy and quietly celebrate."
