ordinary 1737

Day 2 of my two-week “staycation” and so far all is ordinary.  We ran up to Parker, AZ (35 minutes each way) to pick up a few extra extra groceries and a case of water.

More things that are part of my normal weekend. We have fruit trees throughout the park.  People bring in their extra fruit to share with other residents.  These are some of the grapefruit.

This is not cropped; it is a macro shot.  In PSE, I selected just the grapefruit, none of the table, and did auto smart fix, which brought out a bit more of the sun (from the open door) shining on the grapefruit.
