Just Another Day in Paradise

Yuma, Arizona       High 69  Low 50

Yesterday the morning started out OK. We had a some of shuffle board matches here at The Palms with another Park, but about when it was time to start, the wind came up and soon got so bad that both teams decided to cancel.

The wind kept getting stronger and the dust was flying so much that we couldn't even see the mountains.

Then at about 2:00 it started to rain and we had a fairly good rain until about 3:00.

At about 5:00 there was a large rainbow that reached clear across the sky. About that time the clouds started to break up and we woke up to clear sky today.

While it was a little cooler than it has been, it was still a nice day.

I got to play 2 games of shuffle board this morning, winning one and loosing one.

This afternoon we went to Cindy's quilt group where she is giving out a new block every week. I go along to help some of the new quilters with their cutting and with any small problems they might have.

After the quilt group I took Penny to the small dog park so she could play with some of her friends. She always lets us know when it is time for her to see her friends. Last year I had to carry her a lot of the way, but this year she will walk the whole way. It is about a half mile one way and she get a work out going there and then does a lot of running around while there. This is not too bad for such short legs. Then she walks back home. she usually settles down until it is time for bed when she decides it is time to play.

There is the annual Quilt Show here in Yuma Friday and Saturday. I'll let you know how that goes. We might have to buy more fabric. (As if we don't already have enough.) I think Cindy said she has finished 8 quilts since we have been here in a little over 3 months. But life is good.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. You are keeping busy there so many activities, glad you are enjoying it.

  2. Yes you HAVE to buy more material. Some day there may be none to buy, but you will have plenty stored away. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!
