The Wind Strikes Again

Yesterday, Thursday, I did some laundry and Tom washed the Jeep. We did our walk about the campground in the morning and again in the late afternoon. We ate dinner in the motorhome. We had to make a run to the grocery store to pick up milk and juices. It was a nice sunny fairly warm day (60 degrees). Tom and I both like to read and on days as this we do just that. There was a jam session in the clubhouse in the afternoon that Tom went to while I stayed back and took a little nap.
This morning about 4:30am I was awakened with the rattling of our slide awnings due to wind. The wind continued blowing all day and finally began to settle down at sunset. It was also cold with temps staying in the 40's. Even though the sun was bright, the wind and chilliness made for an unpleasant day. We did walk about the campground but certain directions proved to be a challenge with the wind. We went into Wickenburg around noon. After walking through a small area of shops called Mecca and not finding a thing that I could not live without we went to the Hog Trough for a barbeque lunch. The Hog Trough food is much to our liking, the meats are well cooked and flavorful and the beans are the best that I have ever eaten. After our lunch we walked to the Chapparel ice cream shop as there was some local musicians playing there this afternoon. We got some coffee and sat back to enjoy the music but then we felt we should probably get some ice cream so we each had a small cup of their homemade ice cream. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do, right?
Tonight is to be a cold night but then tomorrow the temperature is to start rising into the 70's and Sunday into the 80's- sounds good to me.
