I like walking in the washes.

Exercise: My walk this morning was about 2 miles.

Weather: Although it has been a bit windy today we have had sunshine all day, sweet! It is good to be back storing up the solar power!

I want Sunshine!

Pictures: The cloudy days are staying around for a while, not why I come here! The good thing is, it will pass 🙂

If I want to see a bird out my window ….. :/

In all fairness I do get to watch Hummers when it is not real windy like today. On windy days, I have to set my Humming feeder on the ground to keep the wind from rocking it back and froth causing all the sugar water to spill out. This sugar water would end up on the side of my RV.
Mind you, if I was not in such a homebody mode when I was here in my winter area, I am sure there are areas not far away that would be pretty good birding places if I got out and about.

Exercise: It is already 3:30 pm and I have not did any exercise, not sure I will get to that today.

Solar: There has been a couple of days in a row now with little to no sunshine, I may have to get out the generator for a while tonight. I don’t very often have to do that with my solar system on the RV. I have about 520 watts of solar on the roof and 4 batteries to store the power in which is about right for my needs. In the RV solar game some folks need/want/have far more and some need/want/have far less, all depends on how you use things and your needs/wants. I think that I am likely in the middle of the road with my system. I do see a lot of folks that have half or less but than I see them use their generators far more (sometimes not always). I see some that have twice as much and still run a generator a lot (sometimes not always). I find few folks that are at just the right amount for their needs. I think solar is kind of like money …. the more you got the more you spend, the more solar you have the more you use 🙂

Internet : My connection continues to be problematic, with all the folks around. Could be that the weather is not helping much today.

Internet: My internet is acting up a bit now that all the visitors are coming in packs now. The Wireless towers take a pretty good lick every year about this time. Quartzsite, AZ is a town of about 2000 people but it can have as many as a million people visit in a years time with most of those folks coming in Jan and Feb, in their RV’s. Read more about Quartzsite, AZ here. At any rate it puts a load on the wireless towers and I can tell by the the way my MiFi device and phone behaves. Well, maybe that is right …… I am about 12 miles or so from Quartzsite and maybe I am on different towers but no matter, same effect because this area is busy too.

Exercise: Just my usual 2 miles.

Things Getting Green

Pictures: There are a couple of the plants around here that are starting to green up. Maybe it is all the rain or I just had not notice them starting to green up this early in the past.

Cactus, this one gets a beautiful bloom on it, which will happen in a matter of weeks! I take pictures of them every year.

I am pretty sure the first picture in this post is the same plant and I took this shot last March.
