As usual I wake at 7 o'clock, listen to the news and then go back to sleep. Normally for only an hour but this morning, I didn't get out of bed till after 9 o'clock. I could see out my window that it was cloudy and getting windy. The weather in Bloomington, Illinois is as fair as it is here today. It was 57 and clear there but windy. 61 here and cloudy and windy.
Took my sweet time with breakfast. Got a text from Tom and Deb Celebrating the Dance they plan on moving into the area this weekend. Be great to have company and if Nancy Kissack Adventures can bring that new rig of hers down, we can show her how to boondock in style😃
After breakfast around 12:30, Yuma and I decided to run into Sonoita to get a couple of gallons of drinking water. Didn't take long. Couldn't believe we had a little sprinkle as we headed into town. Just enough to clean the windshield is all though.
|Real or metal?|
Sonoita has a different sign for each of the four ways into town. Hopefully, you'll see more in the days to come.
When we drove back to the ranch, I checked out another parking area to see if I would want to move there if the 4-wheeler crowd bugs me too much this weekend, but the only two sites I like were already occupied.
The wind blew the clouds away and the sun came out later in the day, so Yuma and I braved the winds and took a stroll through the grass.
Yuma has gotten over his new place fears and runs through the grass and loving it. Glad there isn't any shooting around here.
What did Yuma think of the horses? Pretty pictures of the area. It doesn't sound like you got enough rain to keep the dust down, after all that cleaning. Love the horses!ReplyDelete
Yuma didn't see the horses. Took the pictures from the Jeep and he was laying down. Not that much rain for sure. Sure hope more horses come.ReplyDelete
If you please, turn up the heat before I get there. It looks like I may come out on Wednesday. I'm trying to stay in a little bit of warm. The puppies and I don't care, but the fair-weather bird does! LOLReplyDelete
You got it. The temperature sure dropped. Luckily it is bright and sunny.Delete
I love the windmill and the flag pictures the best! Nothing better than watching Old Glory blowing in the breeze! How fun if you get Tom, Deb and Nancy there for a few days! Gotta say wind gets old after awhile, we get a lot of it here!ReplyDelete
I thought of you two when taking the flag picture ☺ Had more winds this winter than in the past. Does get old. Will be nice to have company.Delete
Sonoita looks like a nice western themed town. Cold winds yesterday blew in a cold rain this morning. So needed, keep an eye on the weather, you don't want to get caught in this.ReplyDelete
The temperature dropped to 30 degrees last night 🥶 At least its sunny with no wind so far.Delete
Probably have to go a Larger Store to find the Water Dispenser.ReplyDelete
Glad to read that you'll be having visitors. You can all share your adventures and Knowledge.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
If you are a beer drinker you should check out the Copper Brothel Brewery in Sonoita. https://www.copperbrothelbrewery.com/ReplyDelete
They even have "Red Light" specials in the afternoon. Food is ok, but nothing special. We used to go there to listen to the music but I think the music is a casualty of Covid-19.
If you're camped near the Empire ranch buildings, there is a nice water tap there!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tip Ivan. I am almost out of drinking water now.Delete
Beds here really not meant to be made up. In Vietnam we left the covers pulled back to let out the moisture from sleeping in it. Sounded good to me so no I don't make my bed but air it out which freshens things up nicely. There not you have an excuse not that you really need one :O)ReplyDelete
Bob, I like your reasoning for not making the bed😀Delete
