Saturday.....for real......

7:34 am - Sunday - August 11th - Ramona, CA - 51° F, 86% humidity, wind - CALM....clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 86° F.....the view this morning.....

I felt so weird to be off work on 'real Saturday', which was also the beginning of the new English Premier soccer league.  Our DVR had recorded a match from Friday afternoon, and then over the course of Saturday morning three more matches, so that is how we began 'real Saturday', watching one English Premier game after another.....

....outdoors, no less.  As you can see from the above picture, it was also home maintenance day, which involved vacuuming the interior, cleaning out some cabinets in the salon, washing some clothes, cleaning out the basement 'through' storage bin, and hauling what we do not need on a daily basis up to the trailer where it will remain until we depart RORVR.  We now have room to store the step ladder in our basement through storage bin so I do not have to retrieve it from the trailer each time we need to use it around the Newell.

Additionally, it involved the installation of another piece of sun screen to the southern end of our patio awning.....

.....the morning sun, which is only an issue on our days off work, tends to penetrate our web of awnings and popups making it a little warmer than we would wish.  TLE made that end piece years ago when we first began living in our Newell full time.  It can be installed on either end of our patio awning via large velcro strips she sewed onto it.  It looks like it came from a factory somewhere.

We remained outdoors for most of the day except for a 2 hour period during the heat of the day.  We watched all four English Premier matches with our annual favorite, Tottenham Hot Spurs, coming from  behind (1 to nil) to win 3-1 with all three goals scored in the last 15 minutes of the match.  They trailed from about the 5th minute of the match until the 75th minute.  Elsewhere, the favorites all seemed to win (Manchester City, Liverpool, etc.) their opening day matches.

Later in the day I spent more time continuing to binge watch 'Breaking Bad', and as of Saturday evening I have now finished Season 4.  For dinner I grilled another filet mignon, whilst TLE grilled some onions and mushrooms, as well as steamed some wild rice for our sides.  We ate outside enjoying the quickly cooling evening air.

August is quickly receding into the distance in the 'rear view mirror' as we have now lived through 1/3 of that summer month.  So far we have avoided triple digit temperature days, and the overnight lows continue to hover in the low 50's making for wonderful sleeping conditions.
