12/26/07's COLD in the desert!!!

Woke this morning to very cold weather. Weatherman says it went to 27 degrees last night! The weatherman also says this area is about ten degrees colder than it normally is for this time of year. The good news is that by the end of the week we'll be back in the high sixties and we'll see seventy by New Year's Day. Back to shorts weather!

This morning neighbors were thawing out their water hoses with hair dryers or laying them out in the sun to thaw. Bob had put insulation around ours but we did have a minor freeze at the water source coming out of the ground. It didn't take much to get through that though.

We're off today even though our three day schedule would normally run Monday through Wednesday. Since all Activities workampers had to work yesterday everyone is off today for our Christmas Day holiday.

We stuck pretty much close to home today. We figured with all the gift exchanging that had to be done and people shopping the after Christmas sales that traffic would be a pain to get through and that was one headache we could do without.

This afternoon I went next door to help LaVon with her blog, showing her how to add a counter, weather stickers and the such. Quite a few in the park are reading this blog and several have asked me to help them with their own blogs so I'm going to be busy in the next few weeks.

We have orange trees all throughout the park and they will be ready for picking in the next few weeks.

Looks ready for picking doesn't it? I'm sure once the word gets out that the oranges are ready these trees will picked clean in no time.

After dinner of homemade steak sandwiches Bob settled in for a night of TV and I made my way to the Cantina to work on the new puzzle that was started today.

All in all a pretty uneventful day in the lives of these fulltimers.
