Friday, December 4, 2015, La Posa West LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 18, 0 Miles, 3,585.9 Miles for the Trip

The cloud cover kept it reasonably warm overnight, just down to the 40's. Because I didn't run the furnace as long as usual, it only took until around 11:00AM to recharge the batteries, even with hazy sun. Now, at 1:45, it is completely cloud covered with no visible sun, but I'm still getting 3 amps from the solar panels.

I went into town to buy wrapping paper, boxes, a Post Office mailing box, and clear nail polish. Managed to find it all between the Dollar Store & Quiet Times. The nail polish is to seal the knots in the necklaces I made for the granddaughters. An interesting project. I can see how one can become addicted to making jewelry; it is fun, and while a bit repetitive, something you can do while listening to the radio. Anyway, here are my first two attempts:

Two Necklaces

It will be interesting to see if the girls can keep from breaking them. I used a stretchy cord to string them, but that makes tying the knots at the clasps difficult. There is probably an "official" way to do it, but a couple of half hitches & a blob of nail polish is my solution.

Even though it is completely overcast, it is warm enough to sit outside so that is where I'm headed.

Dinner was a quick trip to Sweet Darlene's for their all you can eat Friday Fish Fry. Very good beer batter Cod, excellent coleslaw & fries, all for $9.95. Hard to beat!

Until Tomorrow -
