January 28 – February 10, 2013 - Yuma

After saying our “see ya later”, we left our little spot and headed south to Yuma.  We arrived 2 hours later at a very crowded Yuma Lakes RV Park and was able to get a nice end spot:

Every once in a while we just need to spend that time in what I call a “reset.”  Not only cleaning and laundry but fixing or improving all the little things that break or need to be improved.  So these past two weeks have been a reset for us!

We spent days getting the dust and dirt out of the inside; Laundry – LOTS of laundry; Had the chip on our windshield fixed – it looks nice – :-); Had the outside washed by Roberts and Andy waxed the outside; and got caught up with paperwork, emails, blog, computer stuff, and made all the phone calls we need to make (I hope anyway).

We made our shopping rounds – AZ Marketplace, Wal-Mart, Frys, etc. and of course some of the fruit/vegetable stands in the area – :-)

And I made a side and back sunscreen for our awning:

I was really pleased – they came out nice.  The back screen can be moved to the front if needed.  Still haven’t decided if I will make a front one – then it will be like a screen room.

And we added a decal to our door window:

Our kitties, now that the vacuum cleaner is no longer running.

We were able to reconnect with family and friends who were in Yuma.

A picnic in the desert with Larry and Peggy and their friends and neighbors.

Andy, Clovis, Ann, Sue, Larry, Peggy, Dale (I think I got them all right):

It was great to see everyone.  Did I say we were blessed – :-).

Stay tuned and enjoy today!
