I woke up at Cindy's, and Jim said you are the only one still in bed. I couldn't believe that, I said go find me some eye drops, my eye's are so dry and I can't see till I get drops. I got ready and made our bed and went downstairs. Christine made me a cup of Keurig coffee. And we watch the news. Then we packed up our things said our thank yous and goodbyes to Cindy and headed to Denny's for breakfast. We all drank more coffee, and had a pretty good quite large breakfast. Then we headed back to Pio Pico Campground. The main road through there, one side of the road was closed the other side had quite a lot of water rushing over it. Cars were backed up we had to make the decision to drive through it or not, if not there was nowhere else to go. We watched a few cars and trucks drive through. I was freaking out, we drove through it, her car sits up a little high and did great. Still was scary. We got back to FW and went in Chris waited while I changed, brushed my teeth and put on a little makeup. Grabbed more water and a diet Pepsi. Her and I left to go Sharon's nail salon, she is the one Chris stays with a lot here. She is a wonderful singer, and foster mon and has lost 96 lbs. Anyway I forgot my nail color, but picked out a nice sparkly pink color. The products the nail salon used smelled horrible, was almost giving me a headache. They never do it the way you're used to at home. My nail Lady Mary said I was going to miss her and I do, if you're reading this. We were going to go to get spring water for us, and go to some other clothing stores in the area. Chris was going to take me home after that and then she was going to go with Sharon to listen to them play music. Jim and I were going to take the night off. But the more I thought about it I decided if they would have me I would see if I could tag along. So we didn't have time for water and shopping that day after the nails we went right to Sharon's house and her husband was kind enough to make us lunch and I got a tour of the house my second California home tour. And then we left and met Lori and switched into her car and went to hear the music. We had to drive almost 2 hours to get there which was beautiful and a little scary some incredible views that the pictures do not even do it justice. We were heading to Casa de Zorro which was all the way down to the valley floor, so beautiful. I took pictures of the hotel, I got to play Roadie for some cool chick singers. It turned out to be a lot of fun. We had a fancy light dinner and awesome dessert and I took pictures of the desert. And the people next to us we're having so much fun I had to go talk to them and we were all dancing to the evening was over together. We had a long drive back and it started to rain again at least it wasn't windy it was very windy when we arrived. We got to Sharon's and we called highway patrol to see if road was open, it was so we decided she would take me home. By then it was after 1:00 am.

I woke up first came downstairs. I had a card for him, and. Strawberry dark chocolate, I figured only way I would get some, we said we would not, but I got the cards free in the mail on our last mail shipment. We were getting picked up by Chris at 2. When Christine picked us up the water at our bridge on our side of the campground was right at the top of the cement. Which made me nervous and thinking we probably shouldn't even leave. First place we went was to Felipe's Italian Grotto restaurant. We actually took three slices home with us. Then we went to pick up Christine's friend Cindy, she came along with us. Then we went to the Valentine's Day All You Need Is Love concert with Jerry and many others.

I was up first this morning, Jim wanted to sleep in. Eventually he got up had eggs, and his steak he grilled yesterday, he went took a shower. I made a smoothie first, I had cereal and yogurt and Christine picked us up at 10. Then we went to La Jolla Beach Cove to see the seals. Wonderful views one of my favorite things so far.
Today we had the day off, I got up it was almost 8 a.m. Jim had his breakfast late. I did two more loads of laundry I vacuumed Karma it took a long time because I tried to do every nook and cranny. I had leftover chicken vegetable soup for lunch, Jim grilled two steaks when he saved one for breakfast tomorrow, and grilled whole bunch of veggies, we are just chilling, Jim watched the hockey game outside and I tried to catch up on my TV shows alone. Jim did make a disturbing Discovery when he noticed the slide we've have issues with has water underneath that we have to figure out where it's coming from, I think it's the window at my chair.
I did not want to get out of bed this AM. I finally did I think it was after 7:30. Did our morning routine kind of had a light breakfast planned on having brunch in Yuma. I did another load of laundry. While Jim went to the shower house I finished getting ready for our day trip out of the state. Packed a little lighter today, no lunch for 3. We both had long pants on at the last minute we both put on shorts. We were getting picked up by Chris 9:15 AM, I procrastinated so long but I was ready. And we started our drive towards Yuma. We made one rest area stop. Then we stopped at Buttercup Imperial Sand Dunes, took some COOL pictures, some people were sand surfing, you could see dune buggies up there.
When we woke up this morning we got a lot of things done before Christine came to pick us up. Jim dumped 30 gallons at the dump station of grey water. He went to take a shower, and took trash out. I did one load of laundry and washed my hair packed a lot of food for lunch to take with us. First we went to a produce stand, I bought 2 kinds of potatoes, 2 pineapples, green beans, zucchini, oranges, spaghetti squash, tomato's, all for $11.58. We went to a friend of Christines that is in the hospital, took care of her cat, she stays there sometimes. It was really fun to see her home and how she had it decorated in the southwest style, since I miss decorating.
