I am 2 days in to my mini walks. Hope to be able to build up a little further sometime next week. If the weather will cool down I would go a couple of times a day.

The other night I made a meat loaf in my new pan it was to small and the juices ran out onto the bottom of the oven grrrr. I wanted to use the oven again but wouldn't turn it on and further burn that stuff in.  So this morning before my walk I sprayed Easy Off on the bottom and the door. I had forgotten all about it until way later in the late morning.  But all the crusty stuff cleaned right off. The biggest problem is the bending over to clean it out. That really cuts off the breathing. So I took my time and got the job done.

Did a load of laundry too. I'm getting bored can you tell.

I made another 3 wash clothes but even that is not all that amusing.

At least tonight my favorite shows are on with the finale episodes of the season. But I have to jump back and forth because they are on at the same time.

It's 102 today but they say that's it and will start cooling down now. Lets hope so I am so done with this heat. I was done in June.

Good Night All


  1. Hi Jo, Just wanted to let you know that I am NOT bored with you ( saw your comment on Gypsy's blog ) - Ha - I am just a quiet person who likes to read - I have been quietly following your blog for maybe a year ? I have a love for Tucson and share your desire to have a van - wish I could escape the upcoming Ohio winter - I enjoy the heat of the desert and worked in Death Valley in 2012 from Mid Dec to mid July - it was 128 when I left but I was still happy and wished the seasonal job was not ending ! My favorite temps were around 113 - and I walked everyday but of course the humidity was only 9 % ! ! - Life has taken many interesting turns and I am approx your age so we share some of the same experiences. I visited Tucson in the 90's and stayed at the Ghost Ranch Lodge - back when it was still a motel - I think it is now a senior citizen apartment place - Anyway, just wanted to let you know that there are probably lots of others like me who quietly read and enjoy your blog and wish you well - Keep writing and having adventures - Hope you find the perfect van soon ! Cindy

  2. Hi Cindy,

    Thank you for responding. But it does seem like some comments are not making thru.

    Yes the Ghost Ranch Lodge is now senior citizen apts.. This town had changed and grown so much you would not believe it. Some changes are not very good ones.

    You and my daughter would get alone pretty good when it comes to the heat.

    Again thank you for your response. Hope you get to come back again some day and we can meet.
