Sat. Dec 29 to Fri. Jan. 4, 2019- Sun City AZ

Saturday-  We were under a freeze warning last night, so Bob had disconnected the water and covered the spigot. The park had sent an automated phone call reminding us we needed to do that. Luckily, we have water in the tank

It was 43 when we woke up this morning. Many other areas were below 32, but we stayed warmer. This cold spell is going to last through next week. Highs are in the low 50’s and nights are supposed to be in the low 30’s.

Since is was supposed to have been below 32, we had turned on the Hydrohot on electric. Bob noticed in the morning that the water was not as hot as it should have been. It turned out that the Hydrohot is not working on electric. It does work on diesel, so we can turn it on if we have too… the reason we would turn it on is to keep the glass tubes inside from freezing and breaking.

While Bob was doing a check of all of the Hydrohot systems, I went to Kohl’s, I need some more long sleeve shirts and they were having a sale. What junk! I could see through all of the shirts there!

So I went to Macy’s. I purchased the only one that they still had in my size, for less than the “on sale” junk at Kohl’s! I started to feel bad, so I returned home, drank some of the Propel and had a quiet rest of the day. Bob seems to be back to normal.

I found a really good show on Netflix called Bodyguard. It is a British show and I binge watched all the episodes. Bob got caught up in it also!  The show had more ups and downs, and twists and turns, than a roller coaster! It is a 2018 show, so no second season, yet!

Sunday- We woke up to 45 degrees, even though Bob had taken in the water filer and disconnected the tubing’s. We did not need to run the Hydrohot last night. We were glad for that, as it is noisy and smelly when run on diesel.

We did our usual Sunday tasks, we watched the Redskin game in the afternoon, and had a quiet afternoon and evening at home.

Monday- We started out with a busy day! We ran to Lowes for the paving blocks to put under the shed. We bought 1/2 of them, loaded them in the car and returned home. The weather report for today was for it to be 51degrees for the high and for rain in the evening. It started raining while we were at Lowes! We had taken the stuff that sits in the back of the car out, and left it sitting on the patio. Ugh, it was wet! So we bought the stuff into the rig to dry and Bob unloaded the back of the car. When the stuff dried, we put it back into the car.

We picked up MaryAnne and went to Baskin Robbins for the “31st” special. We returned and had a quiet evening. It had rained most of the day and the high temp was 43.

Tuesday- Happy New Year! We had a quiet day at home, watching some TV and the Rose Parade. We went to Café Zupas for salads for dinner. We watched Bird Box on Netflix. It was very good.

Wednesday- I went to Maj in the morning. Bob has been working on getting the spot ready for the shed when it arrives on Friday. I returned and we ate lunch. We had a quiet afternoon. In the evening, Bob went to the Astronomy Club meeting. It had been changed from yesterday due to the holiday.

Thursday- I went to Maj and Bob continued working on the spot for the shed. He has been placing the pavers. He had to go purchase the second half of what we needed. He finished this afternoon getting the site all ready. We watched Game of Thrones season 6 this week.

Friday- I went to the card class. Bob waited for the shed to be delivered. They were supposed to call 1/2 hour prior to arrival. They did not, they arrived just after 9 AM. They were to be here between 9 and 12. They came with a hand truck to deliver the two large boxes, from an 18 wheeler, on a pallet. Bob opened the boxes and got started putting the shed together.

We ate lunch, then I went grocery shopping. I returned and picked up MaryAnne to take her to the Toyota dealership so that she could pick up her 4 Runner.It was in for routine repair, but they found that the rabbits had been eating the wires in the truck. $300 worth of damage. They are going to talk to their neighbors about their fruit trees, as they are leaving the fruit on the ground and rabbits are collecting in their area.

We ate dinner at home and watched more of season 6 of Game of Thrones.
