Last night I had a big piece of that delicious apple pie. Had to call Dolly so she could tell me what to do to heat the pie. Wasn’t sure if I heated the whole pie or just cut a piece and heat it. Well she straightened me out. I cut a piece and put it in the oven for around 10 minutes at 250 degrees. It came out warm and delicious. Now, I just need some vanilla ice cream and it will be perfect. Won’t take long if I eat portions that size each time.
This morning felt cooler slightly because of the nice breeze. Laid around and slowly fixed breakfast. Was going to have another piece of that apple pie, but was so full from eating a huge grapefruit, I just wasn’t hungry.
Around noon, Yuma and I decided we would hit a few of the many metal sculptures they have around Borrego Springs. Today, we went to the ones on the north side of town out on Borrego Springs Road. I think these are the neatest ones because of the serpent.
The drive out Henderson Road is always beautiful!
Everyone seems to have beautiful photos of roadrunners; but not me! Whenever, I see one cross the road, it’s gone before I can stop and get my camera ready. Today, I finally get my chance and what does that bird do? It stops for his photo opt right in the shade. Took a photo and then tried to get it to move into the sunlight, but instead it just ran off into the trees and disappeared. See that smirk? Hopefully, I’ll get another chance this winter.
That serpent is impressive, even at a distance!
Notice the serpent goes under Borrego Springs Road?
Got home early and played with a new image editor that has not been working right. I spent some time figuring out why and got it to work properly. Doesn’t really improve the photos that much, but it does have some bells and whistles that I want to learn someday.
With that done, I made a quick run down the hill to see if Deb and Riley were home and they were. We had a nice visit for about an hour. They may be leaving in the morning, but haven’t quite made up their minds yet. I think Yuma is smitten with Riley. She actually plays with him so that makes him happy.
The breeze continued all day and made it feel much nicer. Nice to have a relaxing day and not be in such a hurry in the evening getting dinner ready and working on my blog.
That was our day. Time for dinner and another big piece of pie. Kicking myself for forgetting to get some ice cream today when I was in town. Wonder if it is worth driving twenty miles for tonight?
See you later.
