A wonderful Sunday......
8:36 am - Monday - February 11th - Wittmann, AZ - 39º F, 45% humidity, wind 7 mph out of the west by northwest.....crystal clear, blue sky day with a forecast high of 59º F.....
Deep blue skies this morning
.....managed to sleep in until after 8 am this morning.....love being awakened by the rising sun on a clear day gently oozing through our bedroom curtains!
It was a little overcast Sunday morning, but by early afternoon the skies had cleared and we had a delightfully sunny, balmy afternoon. We watched the entire English Premier soccer match between the Tottenham Hotspurs and Leicester City which was won by the Hotspurs 2-1. The second match between Chelsea and Manchester City was a 6-0 blowout in favor of Manchester City.
By the time the second match was at full time it was time for me to venture outside. As you will recall I spent a couple of hours Saturday getting our gray water macerator pump working again, and I was successful, however, it began to leak after a few minutes of running so I was determined to completely remove it, take it inside the trailer to my work bench, then disassemble, clean, and put it back together. This time I was completely successful and now it works properly.
By the time I finished with the macerator pump it was time to get dressed and drive into Surprise to meet fellow Newell owners Adrianne and Karen for lunch at Rio Mirage Cafe on Bell Ave. We ate at Rio Mirage a few years ago when we were in town, and liked the food so a return visit was in order. We met our friends there at 12:30 pm, and were seated within 5 minutes.....
.....Yelp gives them just 3.5 stars on 326 reviews, but after eating there twice now we would be at a solid 4 stars.....no question about it. Very good, rustic, fresh Mexican food. We talked endlessly for a couple of hours before paying our tab and heading for home.....thank yo Adrianne for treating us to lunch!
On our way home we stopped in at the local Goodwill, one of our favorites by the way, to see if they had anything without which we could not live......I found a very cool, black Tabasco shirt which I have to share with you.....
......TLE also found a couple of things and we were on our way across the parking lot to the Trader Joe's. We had bought a bottle of wine they were promoting within this store (a 2014 Cab) at the amazing price of $3.99/bottle (normally sells at $11.99/bottle). We drank that bottle Friday night and loved it so we returned to by 6 more bottles......what a killer deal!
We were home a little after 3 pm putting away our spoils, and settling in to watch the Pebble Beach Pro/Am. They had a late start due to rain, and hail in the morning, so it was obvious they would not finish all 18 holes on Sunday. By the time the final pairing finished the 16th hole it was dark, so as I sit here this morning they are playing the last two holes with one of my favorites, Phil Mickelson, ahead by 3 strokes with 2 to play! He began the day 3 strokes down, so he had a very good final round.
And that, my friends, was our Sunday.....thanks for stopping by!
