La Quinta, California: We have officially moved to SoCal! Dave and I were up before the chickens this morning and presented ourselves at our new abode to wait for the movers, who were bringing our life-long belongings from Portland to La Quinta sometime between 8-10a. They arrived at 8:30a. (We moved from our Portland home on September 20th.)
A great crew, and our new house has a convenient floor-plan that expands from a center outdoor courtyard into various rooms, so the crew didn't have to venture too much into our house. (COVID!) Everyone was masked and gloved. We had every door/window in the house open, the air conditioning blasting arctic temperatures and every ceiling fan on "typhoon" setting.) Thinking we had a lot of "stuff", the crew were finished carting our belonging from the moving van in just over two hours. By 11a, they were gone, leaving only one guy who was putting our Chinese wedding bed together. He was gone by noon. We were home/back to the RV by 12:30p.
Waking so early, and being on our feet from 8-noon, we came back to the motorhome, had something to eat and fell asleep. Daytime naps are the best... even though we felt a bit woozy the rest of the afternoon. We will now leave our new house alone until Friday afternoon, to hopefully rid the property of any COVID-19 germs. Nice to have a day of rest.
Since our lunch today consisted of cheese and crackers (basically stuffed into our faces, as we were STARVING upon returning to the motorhome this afternoon), I served only vegan pickled and fresh things for our appetizers this evening. Dinner was frozen/left-over Suppli Telephono from a few weeks ago... and a salad.
Must. Make. Salad.
Until my next update, I removed your moved correspondent.
