Party Time!

Gosh, who knew I was a party animal?  Well…not quite, but I really enjoyed my ‘Thank you and come say hello’ party last night!

In the morning I start the chili in my cast iron Dutch oven and that pot is filled to the brim.  I make a good sized bowl of guacamole, there were chips, dips, etc, and last but certainly not least there were margaritas.  The recipe for those came to me many years ago from friends Laura and Joel.  There was enough for everyone and lots of seconds, and I have to say, I didn’t skimp on the Tequila.


We were a happy group!  😁


This morning the chili is gone, but the fire pit still radiates some heat….and if I listen I can still hear the laughter in the pre-dawn silence.


Life is interesting.  Ten years ago I would have cringed at the thought of 20 people attending a party I gave.  Last night it was something that I throughly enjoyed.  I’m happy to say life for me is a work in progress…I’m still changing, growing, and learning.  This lifestyle is helping that happen.  img_2682

I MUST give special thanks to Colleen and Fred who have helped me in so many ways since I arrived here at CLR even through last night.  I couldn’t have pulled the party off without them!

Next….off to the big Q for a few days for the Fiberglass Rally!  Then back to home on the hill!

    Hmmm I can taste those margaritas from here! Looks like so much fun. Love that bird feeder pole and of course the views of the area. Have fun at the fiberglass rally! Think about me and give the girls we met last year a hug for me.

    hi, mickey, glad to hear you’re coming to q. merlin and i have been in q for nearly 3 weeks. i am in the “oasis” site at dome rock, heavily decorated with rock formations with 2 lizards, turtle, gorgeous firepit, lots of shade. hope to see you there soon, claire and merlin

  8. Looks like a great spot, and a great group of friends. Thanks for posting!
    Is the recipe a secrete or can a thirsty Michigander get in on it? (My homemade Margaritas have always been iffy at best)

  9. Hi, you party animal!! Sounds like a great time was had by all. Love the pics. Did you make that pot of chili over the campfire?? I SO love campfire cooking…and I really need to do some. (as soon as I thaw out) Have a good time at Q…

    • Hi Pat (freespirit),
      Actually no I used the stove, then was going to put the pot over the campfire to keep it warm as people served themselves, had a holder thing all set up. But the pot never made it that far, and later when I was going to warm it up again over the campfire the chili was gone!
      But I have a lovely fire pit and someone just brought me a huge load of wood yesterday, so when I get back from Q I’ll have lots of opportunities for campfire cooking.
      It’s like 80 something right now in Gila Bend, on the way to Q. You could thaw out here. 🌵
