Lake Sinclair

We did leave Sunset Beach mid-morning Friday and were on the two lane roads for the first hour and a half.

Then it was on I-20 for most of the day.  I wanted to travel at a faster pace than the two lane roads I usually take but sometime you need to go at a get there quicker speed.

This is not the kind of scenes that I like, roads everywhere.

But I guess if you happen to have a flat tire it would be very helpful to be on this interstate.

After many hours of traveling I-20 it was time to turn at our exit.  At the end of the off ramp we made a left turn in the direction of Lake Oconee on route 44.

Soon we were driving passed Lake Oconee and on our way.

Soon we were in Eatonton and another twenty minutes or so to our destination of Lake Sinclair.

Once again we blessed with having an electric site to pull into.

Saturday I did some projects that needed my attention and still was able to watch a couple of the college football games I wanted to see.

Yesterday I went to Walmart to buy bread which we had run out of and  few more groceries that we needed.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Preparing to move

The T-Bone Steaks I grilled the other day were so good that I just had to go back to Hill's and buy some more of them.  The ones I bought were not as thick as the first ones but still a good  1/2 inch thick where the first ones were 3/4 thick.  So in the freezer they went to be grilled later on.

Yesterday was a trip to the laundromat to do the laundry.  We went yesterday so Nancy would have a day to rest up before we move on south Friday.
I think both of us are ready to get on the road after setting in one place for a month.

Today will be our day for getting things ready for our moving home on wheels with tomorrow being the final latch down of the things so they will stay in place while traveling down the road.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Real good T-Bone

Sunday we started the morning off with a light breakfast.
I told Nancy I was going to take it easy for the day but that didn't work out as I went out side I notice once again how bad the rugs looked on the out side steps.
I had already bought some new rug runner and I had the grommets to do the work at hand.
Getting the measurement and cutting the rugs to size then I installed three grommets on each side.
These are usually attached with small springs but I find that the plastic wire ties work just as well.

I finished in time to take a short break then it was time to grill a couple of T-Bone Steaks that I bought on sale a couple of days ago.

Here is my steak with baked potato, cole slaw, onions and tomato. 
The steaks were good and juicy and so tender.

Nancy had a sweet potato with her steak.  The steaks were around 12 oz  each and to much for us to eat all of it so there was enough left over for a snack some other time.

Yesterday was a day with a few chores of us getting ready to leave this coming Friday.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Rain is gone--for now

All the rain we have been having for a week is finally over, at least it has the last two days.

The sun is out and shining on the just picked tobacco field next door to the Wishing Well Campground where were are staying.

Also this is one of many of the golf communities in the Myrtle Beach area.
There are a lot of people that like their golfing so much that I've seen out in a hard rain playing.

Friday Nancy said she was overdue for a haircut so it was off to Great Clips for a haircut.
She was in and out in a short time.

Yesterday was of course was my college football games day.  So more or less I wore the Lazy Boy and myself out.
Avery good day for some of the teams as they upset the favorites.  Those are some of the best games to watch unless you are wanting the favorite team to win.
Anyway it was a nice relaxing day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Getting by on a little

Wednesday Nancy wasn't feeling very well so I went back to the Roses Store to buy a extension handle for a window cleaner to use on the motor home windows.  The handle extends out to five feet so that will help me by me not having to climb a ladder to clean the windows.
Also while down in North Myrtle Beach I filled the car up with gas again with the fuel still being $2.25 a gallon.  I just filled it up when we were down there the other day so the tank just held $9.00 worth.

Yesterday morning I got up and ready then went to the Hardees Restaurant which is only a couple of miles down the road from us for our breakfast.
For me it was the special of two sausage and egg biscuits for $2.50 and because Nancy doesn't like sausage I got her bacon and egg biscuit not being on sale was $5.98.  Still a good deal and it will be for breakfast again in the morning.
 I went to Shallotte to do some shopping.
First stop was to home depot for some supplies for a couple of projects that I'm going to do.
Next stop was to Dollar Tree for shower spray and Damp Rid because all the rain we have been having everything has a cool dampness to it.
Next up was Walmart for some vitamins we were getting low on.
I stopped at Hills again to get some items that were on sale.
Before I left town I got us a Little Caesar's Pizza.
So buying food for breakfast and again for supper at a cost of close to $15.00 including breakfast again this morning is pretty good getting by on a little if I have to say so myself.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Intercoastal Waterway

Not much going on yesterday since it was a raining off and on kind of day.
I did  go down to the Walgreen to pick up our medicine.

Once again I went down to see what was on the Intercoastal Waterway.
There were six kayakers out on the water enjoying the day.

Boaters out as usual going up and down the coast.

Nancy and I enjoyed the beef roast from the day before for our supper.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Dash air once again

Friday was a busy day again with a project that I have been putting off for sometime.
Our car (Little Red) which is a 2004 red cavalier has had an air conditioner problem for way too long so I thought I would look into the problem a little closer.  I knew the problem was the actuator door by the sound it was making a clicking sound.
So I went to google to see what needed to be done and the suggestions on you tube.  Also the cost if I would take it in to a service place which said the cost would be $600 to $800 because of the difficulty of the labor involved. On you tube they showed how the dashboard would have to be removed in order to get to the actuator.  After checking things out I decided I could do it myself by getting at it from beneath the dash and in order to do that I would remove the front passenger seat so I would be more comfortable lying on my back.

After taking the actuator off I was off to Advance Auto to get a new one.
From there I went to hills to get a few groceries then I picked us up a pizza from Little Caesar's.

After getting back home Nancy ask if I was going to eat and I told her I would rather wait until I was finish with the car than eat the pizza and have to lay on my back to finish up with the car because at times pizza doesn't agree with me anyway.
Checking my time with the car including taking the seat out and putting it back in took all of 45 minutes. 
Not to shabby in the it saved me at least $600.

Saturday started off good with Nancy fixing me a good breakfast as always on Saturday.
Two eggs with peppers and onions, two sausage patties, two small slider biscuits, a fried hash brown patty that with a cup of coffee tasted mighty good.

Well it was another trip to Walmart because although the actuator door was working the air coming out of the dash vents were not cooling enough so I had to buy a can of freon to put in.
Back hone I added the freon and after a short time checking the temperature it measured 47 degrees so good enough with the car setting still and idling.

With being caught up for the day I settled into my lazy boy and watched a couple of college football games the rest of the day.
