Desert View - Day 64 - Real Friday....

8:11 am - Saturday - January 13th - Grand Canyon - 33º F, 55% humidity, wind 1 mph out of the southwest.....clear blue skies......forecast high for today is 52º......BP 134/80.  It is so nice to sleep in!  I haven't done that for a while.....nice to wake up with the sun for a change.

We are now at the half way mark in our stay here at the Grand Canyon......we've been here for about 9 weeks, and we have about 9 weeks to go.  I confirmed our last work day with Dakota, our manager, at work Friday, so it is now official that on March 19th we will be rolling our wheels once again.  Friday also marked the one week mark since I had gotten my cold, and as of Friday I feel about 98% back to normal.....my energy is returning quickly.

I had the 'open' shift again Friday, and drove the VW once again (TLE was not working) as the trail is still drying out, but it should be fine again by Monday when I return to work once again.  I anticipated Friday not being very busy, but we had customers within minutes of opening and doors, and it stayed relatively busy for my entire 5 hour shift.  I ended up dropping $219.  Of course, this is the Martin Luther King holiday, and that may explain the amount of foot traffic in the store.  I'm glad I'm not working Saturday, or Sunday as the last thing I need right now is to be exposed to enormous amounts of people who may, or may not be carrying cold germs into the store with them.  We are still selling a lot of over the counter cold remedies.

After working 4 days in a row I was ready for a nap, and that is what I did within minutes of getting home from my shift.....in fact I took two nice naps over the course of the afternoon in addition to reading.....it was a nice, quiet, relaxing afternoon.  TLE continues her recovery from bronchitis, and has two more days to do so before she must return to work.

So, for a change, this Friday was Real Friday for us.....we're off Saturday and Sunday this week, which is a first for us here at the Grand Canyon.  I think I am going to take some time Saturday to just stand outside in the sun, and soak in some vitamin D.....it's been a while.

Thanks for stopping by!
