Here's a view of the rear of the house, barbecue grill and patio table ready for action.
Judy did a great meal on the grill last night. First she marinated some skinless, boneless chicken breasts in a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce and Mrs. Dash spices. Then she put them over low heat on the grill and also grilled some split lemons. Later when she checked and noticed the lemons were browning too much she moved them to the rack above the chicken. Later still she noticed they were dripping lemon juice down onto the chicken. Yummm! Later still she cooled the chicken down, sliced it and served it over a mixed green salad. Wonderful! (And she said she didn't want to cook anymore!)
We have a number of wildlife specimens around. We've seen a couple of small bunnies. I saw a long-eared jackrabbit one day. There are doves, a couple of Gila woodpeckers, and a number of Mockingbirds with their wonderful songs. Here's one of the latter.
We can hear the traffic on Baseline Road from where we live but we're trying to convince ourselves it's just the sound of the surf in our nearby ocean. (We wish!)
But so far we're enjoying our new life.
