The sun is rising earlier and so am I. This morning I woke with the Sun blazing in my window at around 7 o'clock and I was out of bed at 8 o'clock. Took a small walk around our site. Every time we move, Yuma is afraid to go out the first couple of days for some reason, but he gets over it.

I was getting tired of the dust, dirt and hair all over the place, so today is cleaning day. I will do the living and kitchen area today and the bathroom and bedroom tomorrow.I swept, wiped, mopped and rinsed till everything shined. Had to shake all the rugs and clean those areas that had gotten spilled on. Felt so much better when it was done.
|Nice and shiny now.|
Finally, around 3:30 Yuma couldn't rest anymore so we jumped in the Jeep and headed the short distance to the Empire Creek so he could run the trails. The first year I walked this area of Cottonwood trees, it was beautiful and lush, but they had a fire that ran through the creek area and destroyed nearly all the trees several years ago.
Heading into the creek area.
|Fire damage everywhere.|
|Creek is underground and pops up here.|
|There's a sign saying beware of falling limbs.|
|Can you find Yuma?|
|There is a little water movement.|
It was nearly 5 o'clock before we got back so I edited my pictures and then fixed a cheeseburger and a salad for dinner. Yummy! It's now 7:30 and I'm finishing my post so I'll have time to relax and watch TV before bedtime. All the 4-wheelers have left so I'm now alone in the grasslands. Sure do hope for a quiet week ahead.
