Winter has returned to Arizona with a vengeance. All Thursday night, and all day Friday, the wind rocked our motorhome, and the sky was gray and ugly. I’m still not feeling all that great, so it was a good day to stay inside. I did some work on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, but my brain is still foggy and I have no energy, so I’m not sure how much I actually accomplished.
We finally ventured outdoors about 5 p.m. to ride into Cottonwood with Greg and Jan for dinner at Sizzler. The food was just as good as it was last week, but our server left a lot to be desired. It’s not often that I only leave a dollar tip in a restaurant, but with this guy, that was generous. Some people are not cut out for dealing with the public, and he obviously is one of them.
Back at the Thousand Trails campground, Greg and Jan visited with us in our motorhome for a while, then retreated to the warmth of their American Eagle. I had recorded the last two episodes of Who Do You Think You Are? genealogy television show, so Terry and I watched them until almost bedtime.
The overnight temperature dropped down into the 30s, and we have an inch of snow predicted today. Did I mention that I hate winter? 🙁
We plan to stay home today, and if I can muster up any energy, I really need to get some work done. For the last few days, I have been pretty much worthless. If I don’t start earning my keep, Miss Terry may kick me to the curb! 🙂 and I can’t say that I would blame her.
Terry has enjoyed the downtime to get some baking done, and Greg and Jan have enjoyed reaping the benefit of her output. Of course, I’m not complaining either! 🙂 She made some delicious bread the other day, and today she’s making bagels. Yummy!
I’ve received a couple of letters from blog readers asking about our Eastern Gypsy Journal Rally and expressing concern what the weather might be like in Ohio that time of year. Usually it very nice, with pleasant days and cool evenings, and the leaves will be turning to put on a beautiful color display. It’s my favorite time of the year.
We’re due to leave here on Wednesday, and with the downturn in the weather, it’s a pretty sure bet that the Show Low Elks lodge campground won’t be opening by then. So we may see if we can get into the nearby Western Horizons campground for a week under our Resorts of Distinction (ROD) membership. I hope so, because if I don’t get some more energy, I don’t think I’m up to traveling very far.
