Finished....at last!

7:15 am - Tuesday - March 12th - GNHS - 54° F, humidity 72%, wind 5 mph out of the west by southwest.....partially cloudy skies today with a forecast high of 75° F.  On this date in 2015 TLE and I were having lunch, and some brews at Prescott Brewing Company.....

Apocalypse Chocolate Porter

You can feel the warmth each morning remaining in the air from the day before.  Sure, it's not hot right now, only 74° F, but it's not cooling off as much overnight as it was a few weeks ago  when there was a 30° F differential from day to night.  Now it is about a 15° F overnight differential.  It appears our first of many 80° F days will occur this Sunday, and the 70's are gone until move to Fontana in a couple of weeks.  Here at 200' below sea level summer is never far away.

Mid morning Monday I got busy connecting the wiring for the new fog lamps to the existing 12 volt supply line.  I made sure to utilize shrink tubing (3:1) to protect all the connections from moisture....

....then, once I was sure everything was properly connected had TLE turn on the new fog lamps for the first time....



....nice!  I love it when a plan comes together!  I've been meaning to replace those fog lamps for a few years now.  It's not that we often drive in the fog, or after dark, but if and when we need to it is nice to know we now have enough of the proper illumination.

TLE and I took a single 1 mile out and back walk Monday around 2 pm....it has been a while since we walked with all the traveling, and socializing we've been doing the past 2 weeks.  We kind of poked along ag 3.1 mph....

....around 3 pm I backed the VW out of its parking spot to give her another spa treatment.  It hasn't been that long since her last spa treatment, but it has rained a few times since then, leaving water spots.  We, hopefully, will be heading into Thousand Palms Tuesday to have new 'shoes' put on her, plus get the new trailer tires mounted.  I'm still awaiting the call saying the tires have arrived.

Other than that we spent a good portion of the day reading, and napping, and talking about our departure, and setting up a schedule to begin taking down our site.  It never takes as long as I think it will, but it is always just as tiring as I imagine it will be.  

I applied the last layer of chemical cream to my lower lip Monday evening....yup, it has already been 21 days since I began the twice daily application of the cream, and my lip has been protesting vociferously for the past two weeks.  Time to begin the healing process prior to my March 25th appointment with my dermatologist to see if the chemical peel was successful.  I sure hope so, because I don't want to go through that again any time soon.  My lip looks, and feels like I've been lying in the sun for too many hours and got a good sunburn on it, that will soon blister, and be very uncomfortable, and that is how it has been for most of the 21 days.  Dealing with the effects of too much sun over a lifetime is not for the faint of heart....lol!

Thanks for stopping by!
