Same things going on here

Yeah, just the same things going on here.

Going to the store one or two days a week, taking out the garbage, house cleaning, and all the things that take up the time in a normal week.
I didn't need to go to the store very much this week because we had our freezer full and had to empty out some of the food so it would not get too old.

Of course watching the college basketball games, some good and some not so good.
Basketball is kind of crazy this year with more upsets than usual.

Being off the road means nothing exciting in the blog. 
Nancy and I are relaxing more this year.  Last year with all the things that I did kind of wore me down and did make me feel my age.

Thanks for stopping by and do have a great day,

Almost a busy day.

Our weather here in Florida keeps jumping around.
It has been rather cool with day time in the 6o's and night time in the low 40's.   Last night the temperature was a low of 61 and today will be the real Florida temperature of 86.
Now this is more like it and why people come to Florida for.

Yesterday I was at the mall doing some shopping for myself for a pair of sneaker's.

The Gulf View Mall looks kind of deserted with half of the stores closed.
The Shoe Dept. Encore is the only store in the mall that sales shoes.  At one time there were at least five stores that sold shores.

So after walking up and down the rolls of shoes I decide on a pair of Skecher's that felt good on my feet.

I told Nancy that I would prepare supper when I got back from the mall, since she wasn't feeling well today.

So after getting back home I started with the food.  First it was slicing the steak into small strips and set it to the side.
Then it was cutting the green pepper and onions up.  Next I fried up the steak almost done before I took it out of the skillet to put the peppers and onions in.
After the peppers and onions were all most finished I put the steak back in (with Nancy having a loud grin at the way I was doing things).
After all that looking just right to my satisfaction it was ready to put on the warm " super soft" tortillas and wrap up.
All of it tasted good and the steak surprised me at how good and tender it was.

The rest of the evening was just relaxing.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Cooler Weather

Well I hope that everyone is safely over the holidays and are ready to get back to whatever is your normal day of living.

Nancy and I had some kind of stomach bug the kind that last three days or so.  We  were like the first day you don't want anything to eat because the night before we had stomach cramps and you kind of feel like you have the flu coming on.   But we are ok now.

I did get out Saturday to get us some drinking water.  We got into the habit of bottled water when we went full timing because of the different places we were and knew the water departments never have the same kind of water mixture.

Our weather has changed to be cooler now from the 80s and 70s at night to 60s day time to middle 40s at night.
So what ever the weather you just have to dress accordingly to it.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

A good day with Cabbage Rolls

I hope everyone had a good and safe New Years eve and day,

I spent the most of Tuesday evening making Nancy and myself cabbage rolls for New Years Day because I knew I would not want to be busy on the 1st of the year.

I would be watching ball games and eating some of the cabbage rolls.  They were really good this year with the taste just right.  So good that I started on eating that I almost forgot to take a photo.

I did take all the scatter rugs outside to shake out and use the swifter to dust and wet with a lemon scent pad. 

I finished one half and hour before the games so I had time to get a couple of the cabbage rolls and settle in my recliner to watch some football.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

WOW--63 Years

Today makes 63 years that the love of my life and I got married. 

Nancy and I are still working on our marriage, because when we decided to get married some of our people said it would not work longer than six months.
Yeah we were young with Nancy being 17 and me at 18 it was hard at times.
But the both of us believed in the marriage vowels we took.

 

We celebrated our Anniversary  by going to the Hibachi Grill and Buffet.
Here Nancy looks happy with her plate full.

And here's mine, I don't eat much, well starting out that is.  I like to get a half cup of the noodles and then add Won Ton soup.

Then here comes my first plate of food.

Then the second smaller plate of food.

Then my dessert, which looks happy to see me.  A couple of donuts, a little pineapple and a couple of  baked coconut cookies.

I don't have to tell you we always enjoy the meal here and we get there early enough for the early bird
special.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Enjoyable Day


Yesterday I went to the Winn Dixie to get a few groceries a little early because I had my day planned.
I mean like a full day with basketball starting at 11:30 am and football finishing up at midnight.

Isn't being retired good at times, when you can set your day doing what you want no matter what day it is?

If you like college sports of football and basketball, this is a good time for you in the calendar year.
Nancy even got into one of the basketball games with me which she rarely does.

There is at least one basketball game that I will watch today and maybe more, with nothing else scheduled.

Its a good day to stay inside with the air-conditioner anyway with the warmer temperature outside.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.
