As I sit here writing this I can hear the wind blowing and feel the gentle rocking it is creating inside our home. It is our second day with this wind and according to the weather predictors it will end sometime overnight or at least it will be only a slight breeze when we awake in the morning. I am not complaining because we are safe and warm inside our home just mentioning what the weather is like this evening.
It was a quiet day out here in the desert and I just realized I did not even step outside once all day. We did have a surprise visitor this morning when Bill, On Our Way, stopped by. He was actually looking for Doug, Miss Adventure Travels, who was not home when he got here. Doug has been having some trouble with his inverter and Bill had an idea of what might be wrong so he took a drive out to see if he could help. We have met and become friends with a lot of nice people living this lifestyle. People always ready to lend a helping hand when they can and Bill is one of them.
The two pictures I did take today of the Cargo Muchacho Mountains and the lovely shadows the clouds were creating on them were through the front windshield.

The day started as most of our days do sitting and enjoying our morning coffee. Sometimes during this time it is very quiet, sometimes I am reading blogs to see what our friends are up to and sharing with Tom, other times we talk about what is going on in our world, then there are times we discuss where we will go when we leave where we are at. I personally enjoy the days that start out very quietly and there is no real plan for the day. The type of day that we just let unfold and enjoy the moments.
The wind picked up and dare I say it got cold out. I know, I know our family and friends back in Michigan and Wisconsin do not want to here that we thought 52 degrees was cold but it was. So because of the temperature and the wind which kicked up later in the morning we decided not to have an group Happy Hour today. Tom and I took off and took a short ride a little closer to the mountains. Just making a quick check of our surroundings. I did not take my camera and did not even take a picture with my phone. It is a road we have driven several times along the powerlines and I decided to just enjoy the views while we talked. We were probably only gone a little over an hour and then we came home to enjoy a quiet Happy Hour. It was just an ordinary day to be lived and enjoyed.
