Change in plans

Yesterday when I got up I checked the weather for Bisbee, Arizona, our destination. Well imagine my surprise when it said snowy/rain! I let Anne know and she said no to travel as did Scotty. when Jim got up we told him we were staying in Las Cruces one more day.

We had a few errands to run so the four of us hopped in the truck and headed to Lowe's and the guys spent so much time we thought they should take us out to lunch, but nooooo. We stopped at Albertsons and picked up some groceries.

Back home we had some lunch and watched the weather deteriorate. It really didn't get bad, but the temperature dropped and we had spitting rain. Scotty said he saw snow flakes while working outside.

I made a pot of taco soup for dinner and Anne made a salad and corn muffins. A good meal if I say so myself! We then made plans for our next stop.

A cozy evening indoors and life is good.

This morning I was up at 7 and woke Jim shortly thereafter. We wanted to make an early start for our trip to Benson, Arizona. Since we have reservations for Monday we changed our destination from Bisbee to Benson. I was ready to go around 10 minutes after 9. Jim was almost ready to go as were the Scotts. But they couldn't start the Winnebago! ERS was called and we waited about 45 minutes for them to show up. They got the rig started and we were on the road!

Better late than never. Our drive over to Benson was easy if boring. We took I-10 and though the mountains broke up the monotony of interstate driving it was a long trip. About 220 miles. The most interesting part of the trip was Texas Canyon! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_Canyon We may have to check it out some day.

Arizona doesn't do daylight savings so we gained an hour when we arrived in the state. We're staying at SKP Saguaro C0-Op for two nights. the rates are good and the park is laid out nicely.

For dinner we ordered pizza and having it delivered was nice because no one wanted to drive out to get it. Anne made a small salad and we all ate our fill. Scotty and I drank a bottle of red wine while Jim and Anne had beer.

Back home we've showered and we're computering as Ginger would say. The TV is on but we're really not paying attention.
