Today it rained and rained. The desert was filled with puddles and the small washes in our area had water running through them. For the most part we spent the day inside. During one slow down I took a quick ride into Quartzsite to visit Hardies Beads to pick up some supplies. I have to admit I have now replaced buying material with beads. One good thing they take up less space.
When the rain finally stopped for the day I put on my shoes and went for a walk around the area we are parked at. Right now we are a group of 5 rigs parked together and though we have just met 2 of the couples we can already tell the days ahead are going to filled with lots of fun moments.

Hoping for tiny green leaves soon.

descended on us from the evening before.
|The blue sky was making every effort to show up.
|Some people think there is no green in the desert.
As the sun was setting everyone came out to take a picture so we did enjoy a brief chat before everyone headed back in for the evening.

Today the sun was shining as we opened the shades and we could see blue sky. We enjoyed our coffee and then Tom took a ride into Quartzsite to take care of some banking business and pick up a couple of groceries. I made almond cream cheese pancakes and fried up some bacon while he was gone. (I am not sure whose recipe it is. When I wrote it down I failed to write whose it was but thank you. Low carb and good.) He arrived back just as I finished so we enjoyed brunch before going out to have "fun" organizing the other half of the basement. It is now done. After we finished Tom set up our outside patio.
Then it was time to join the people below in the middle of our "circle" at Happy Hour. A very nice way to bring our day to a conclusion sitting and chatting with friends.

Two days spent very differently one inside and one outside, both special.
We are glad you stopped by for a visit.
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
