A Beautiful Christmas Eve Day

This was another bright sunny beautiful day with a high of 70F (21C). This morning I got up about 1/2 hour later than usual. It was just too warm and cozy under my electric blanket and I could hear the furnace running so I knew it was still cold.

This morning passed uneventfully with interneting and reading. This afternoon I decided to try to go for a walk with my foot wrapped so put on my velcro sandals (with socks which I usually hate) and headed down to the office as I could see the owner was there and I wanted to tell him that we're leaving on Thursday and find out how we were to pay our electric bill. I found out that it's .22/kwh here. YIKES! With the cold weather we've had our electric heater has been running a lot of days non stop so we're going to be in for a big bill! He also told me that when we come back our site will be reduced to $427 ($395 + tax) + electric. We paid $449 + electric
for this month. The reduction is because we're a returning customer. So we'll be paying the same amount as they pay up front except our site has a view and a beautiful back yard.

When I came back I sat outside and read and enjoyed the scenery and the birds for about an hour then came in to make cornbread and boil some potatoes so I have a head start on the Cornbread Stuffing for tomorrow.

This little house finch sat with me for a long time in the cholla next to me.


It was a pretty quiet day overall. Sure glad it warmed up!

We went out for sunset for what I thought was going to be a short trip but turned out to be a two hour drive so everything is late tonight!

Mountains at sunset on our drive tonight.
