Rainy Days and Mondays

always get me down…

Below are the graphic weather forecasts for our area over the next four days.  They look exactly like the ones from the past week.  Lots of rain and humidity keeping us indoors spinning our wheels.

Rain Chance for Measurable Precipitation 80% Rain Chance for Measurable Precipitation 80% Rain Likely Chance for Measurable Precipitation 70% Rain Chance for Measurable Precipitation 80%  

Rain Likely Chance for Measurable Precipitation 60% Rain Likely Chance for Measurable Precipitation 70% Rain Likely Chance for Measurable Precipitation 60% Rain Likely Chance for Measurable Precipitation 70%

I have spent the past week recovering from a tough sinus infection, but feeling much better now.  Seems I was able to pass it on to Wanda, though.  She’s having a tougher time with it than I did. 

With the weather being like it is, we have spent lots of time reading, loafing, and just being lazy.  I finished another Jack Reacher novel and Wanda has tackled a 2000 piece jigsaw puzzle. She will probably have it finished before the weekend.

Watching the weather in the Southwest a little closer, also.  Still kicking around Quartzite, but not fond of traveling that distance just to be trapped indoors while a cold wind blows.   I’m also getting reports of really warm weather in Florida with lots of paddling opportunities.  Decisions, decisions.  Hopefully, the forecast for the Southwest will improve over the next week or so and make our decisions easier to make.

Bottom line is that there’s not much happening around the old home place.  Just bidding time……jc


  1. It's the same at our house, too, Jerry.

    Wishing you sunny skies and warm travels soon! :)

  2. So sorry you both got that sinus ugh...it hangs on forever. My husband uses the nettipot but I get maneuver it right :O) This is not the year for nice weather out west...we got spoiled last year. Saw things are to look up mid week Yuma way...and Florida in the 80's now WOW - decisions, decisions. Hope you find your sunshine soon :O)!

  3. Cold here this morning (26) but we're looking at mid 70's along the lower Colorado this weekend. I'm headed out Friday for nearly a month of river trips, boondocking, and Q visits. Hope you decide to come this way!

  4. Rain forecast for Ocala area come this weekend and temperatures dipping down into the 60's within 10 days. If you leave soon you might make it to the big tent show at Quartzsite!

    Sorry to hear about the illnesses. That sinus thing hung on forever last fall.

  5. Hope you are both over the sinus problems soon - that's no fun.

    Russ and I like to listen to Jack Reacher audio books when we travel. Hard to fall asleep at the wheel when Jack Reacher is up to his ears in trouble!!


Thanks for looking, and comments are welcome.
