|Deb, the gold chair is still there!|
|Love the color of the lake..|
|Crops on the way to Yuma|
We headed to Fry's and some grocery shopping. That parking lot is crazy! Took us about an hour in there. Topped off the gas tank and Walmart for a few things. Cannot believe how crowded and busy everything is! Yuma is sure a long drawn out town!
By the time we were done with all that it was about 1400 way past time for lunch. We went back to a little diner that is in the same parking lot as a gas station. We'd seen it many times but never have gone there. Took us awhile to get there as we were headed the other way and looking for the sign to I 8. Finally found it and off we went. Closer to 1430 or so when we sat down.
The Daybreakers Cafe is a cute little place, obviously older but well kept. They just got craft beer on tap so Ken ordered a tall Deshutes IPA and I had a glass of Chardonnay. Ken had a turkey melt which he loved and I had a grilled chicken breast sandwich, both came with fries and they were very good! We were stuffed when we left and both knew there would be no dinner.

|This little place is very good! We would definitely go back..|
One more stop at Amerigas for propane and luckily we got in. The last vehicle in line and they shut the gate. Sign says they close at 1600 but it was more like 1530 when he shut the gate. $2.39 a gallon, so not bad. After that we were homeward bound.
Got the stuff put away and sat outside a bit. The wind was blowing hard but the way we have the trailer parked it was fine. Later we watched the news and then back outside. The evening was beautiful and the moon was gorgeous!
Our son Bryan called while we were outside so I talked to him and so did Ken. He had a cord of wood delivered and so spent part of the day stacking it. Looks good Bryan!
|The load delivered..|
|and stacked..you deserve a beer, son!|
Eventually we called it a night and slept with the windows and door open! Nice. A good breeze going right across the bed so it was awesome!
Woke up this am about 0600, started the coffee and closed the windows and door. No need for the heater but it was a little cool. Got Ken up and we started the day catching up with our friends. While we were sitting there I noticed a glow in the dining window..what a sunrise!! Had to get it!
|Our gorgeous sunrise..no enhancements..|
|A little wind this am..|
We had decided on a brunch for breakfast. I had the ingredients to make Ree Drummond's (Pioneer Woman) Tater Tot Casserole. Before we left home we saw her make it on the show and it stuck with us so decided today was the day. Got all the good ingredients going sausage, onions, bell pepper cheese and the egg mixture. YUM..all kinds of goodies you shouldn't eat, well the veggies don't count. haha..
|Layer of tater tots..cooked for 15 min..|
|Everything else dumped on top..|
Ken wanted it made exactly how she does it, (I thought there should be more eggs) so that's what I did. Outcome was awesome just that way. There's enough left for his breakfast tomorrow and maybe a bit more.
|I even treated myself to a mimosa..had a bottle of champagne|
since home..seemed like the perfect morning..
Cleaned house, Ken ran to get some fresh water and now we're ready to see what the rest of the day holds.
|Congratulations to our Grandson, Jacob..got|
