This Is The Perfect Time

The weather has been so wonderful! While the mornings are still chilly that's fine. Of course this morning was 40 degrees which is much warmer than it has been. By afternoon it is perfect with high 60's or low 70's.

I have been working on cleaning up the porch of the winter wind messes. I cleared some pots off the porch that once held pretty colored flowers. But with the pretty flowers come skeeters and so this year no flowers. Besides once the heat hits they all die anyway but the skeeters remain.

I had moved one of the wicker chairs into the spare bedroom but removed it back to the porch since I never used the room for what I intended it to be which was for crocheting, which these days I am doing very little of. 

Back to the porch; Fred and I have been spending our afternoons out there and really enjoy being outdoors after this crazy really cold, windy and wet winter.  Of course all to soon it will be way to hot to sit out there once mid morning arrives. 

So once again summer thoughts of escaping are hitting hard. I think I have finally found an outlet where I can sell some of the things I have been wanting to get rid of. I will gather them up and take them in to the store next week. I have lots of change to roll and take to the bank, going to build the summer funds up so maybe I can find something to go traveling in. And also get rid of lots of things I don't need or use anymore.

Getting out and about these past 2 weeks with friends and getting things done has been great. I did get my license renewed finally. I had mentioned needing to go to one of my friends and she I will go with you. So we set a date and off we went. Drove to Green Valley and we were out of there in 20 min. It was great. After that we went to Big Lot's and did some shopping. I miss that store so much. There was one just down the road from me but for some reason they closed it. It was always packed so don't really know what happened. There are other stores in Tucson but I hate this town and they are way to far. Green Valley is so much easier to get to and it sure is a nice big store. 

After shopping we went to Denny's for lunch and we both brought home half of the meal.

Well better get a move on must go get a hair cut today I have put it off long enough.

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Do you have any idea of what you are looking for to go traveling in? If I had any energy and put my mind to it I could probably fix up my Toyota Highlander to go camping in, but I don't have a clue where I would go by myself.

  2. Good idea to take your unwanted stuff to a consignment shop get some cash for your stuff!
    I sold for 2 years on ebay all the stuff I found in this house that I did not want to keep my son's toys from the 80's sold the best! Hope you get a good plan going for a get away. Spring is happening here we will have some more cold snaps but it's coming on big time!

  3. Getting away for a bit is always a good thing. Coming back home is even better!

  4. Hi Gypsy,

    I was hoping to find a high top van either conversion or cargo but have had no luck at all for what I can afford. Today I was reading about a young girl who turned a regular van into a sweet little camper. The dimensions are the same as my truck so I need to figure out how to make this work. Like you I need the energy to get a move on.

    Hi Sondra,

    I remember you selling on e-bay. I really have no need for this stuff and the money would allow me a better summer out of this inferno.

    I'm sure we will have a few more cold snaps here too so right now enjoying the outdoors before that happens or the heat hits.

    Hi Jim,

    I am so ready to get out of here, my problem is I never want to come home. Thought hard about selling this place but it wouldn't bring enough money to buy anything else without having a mortgage and I sure don't want one of those. And I'm to old to start full timing in an RV.
