Work days and Rest days

Going to the store sometimes seem like an every day occurrence.  At least the grocery store is only a couple of miles down the road.

But all those trips knock me out of working on the motor home.  Which is taking longer than I had planned it would.
The priming of the walls is coming along though.  With having to take down the window blinds and putting them back up until its time to put the coat of paint on takes up time.
And of course now its coming to do that to the dinette with the table and seats.  Then the sofa with all the things we have stored under it.
Doing all of this with living full time in the motor home is quite a chore.
Of course we knew it would take time in knowing how quick I tire out these days.

Today it will be college basketball games where I will be watching them on the tv.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Doctors and Doctors

Nancy's kidney doctor wanted a copy of her bloodwork before she was to be there for her appointment in case there was something else needed to be checked.
So I ran a copy off of the results and we took it down to her to look at.  As a result she still has to have some more blood drawn because the kidney doctor needed something else checked.

Then it was a stop at the doctors office where Nancy was the other day, they were suppose to call a prescription in which they didn't do.  So they said it would be called right in.

By that time it was time to eat and we decided to go to Chili's to have supper.  We had their version of chicken fingers and it was really good and more than enough so we brought half of it home for another time to eat.

On the way back home we stopped off at the Walgreens to pick up the medicine the doctors office had called in.
After getting back home by which time it was dark we both pulled our shoes off and relaxed after a half of the day from running around.

The weekend consisted of watching college basketball games.  Some good and others not so good.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Bloodwork report

The doctor showed Nancy her results of the bloodwork up and she was surprised that her numbers were better than she expected.  So we were happy about that.

As far as mine went the numbers had gone up a little since the last time I had blood work done.
Not very much but enough that I do want them down in the normal range they should be.
Most of them can be corrected by changing my eating pattern.

Yesterday I filled up the tank on the car the first time since it was filled up in Georgia.
I filled up at the Shell Station where I used my "Rewards Card"  with the price being 187.9.
That was a 25 cent discount from the price of 212.9, it sure did fell good to pay less than $2.00 and more a gallon.

From there it was to Walgreen to pick up our meds I thought, but they didn't have all of them ready.
So I went to Winn√Dixie to do some things we needed while they finished up the prescriptions.

After getting back home and having a light lunch Nancy started washing our laundry in our small washer/spin dryer.  After she had a good load washed and spin dried I took it down to the laundromat here at the park to dry completely. The small washer takes two loads washing before it is one dryer load.

By sunset yesterday it looked like it was going to be a cold night and it was.
This morning it was 36˚ I know that's not cold, but hey folks this is Florida.  You know the sunshine state.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Sorta busy

It was a slow weekend in that I did no work on the remodeling.

I started Saturday off with a nice breakfast of ham and eggs, hash browns, cut up Hungarian hot peppers, biscuit and jelly and coffee.

But I was real busy watching some college ball games and eating hot dogs.  For some reason hot dogs are one of my favorite foods.
Reasoning may be that all through high school my mom had a little snack bar beside the school that kept her busy.  And after being there all day she was not going to be home the rest of the evening fixing supper for my brother, me and herself so we had hamburgers or hot dogs from the snack bar.
Being teenagers my brother and I didn't mind this as any teenager would love to have a choice of hot dogs or hamburgers for a meal.

Mom was a great cook, so weekends we would have nice big meals. She would have fried chicken that would put  Kernel Sanders to shame.

Nancy and I have an appointment tomorrow to go in and see the results of our bloodwork. 
Nancy's may change from time to time but mine usually stays the same.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Anothe day

Nancy had a early appointment to have a ultrasound, so that meant another morning without breakfast.
But that was ok it also was breakfast eating out again. This time it was a late breakfast at the Sunny Side Up Restaurant, which only a half mile from where Nancy had her ultrasound.
As it turned out our breakfast was just as good and a little less costly than the Breakfast Club the other day.  And on top of that more food, a bowl of gravy, extra piece of bacon for Nancy, larger sausage patties for me.

After getting back home I continued working on the motor home remodeling which looks like is going to take up most of my time this winter.
Did I mention I'm more than kind of slow.  Well these days I just get tired really quick.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Busy Morning

With the Thanksgiving ham that was too much for Nancy and I to eat I sliced the rest of it off the bone.  We had four packages that were sliced to go in the freezer for a later date to eat.

Saturday was football and basketball time for me, which took up most of the day.

Yesterday I did get some time to work on taking one bench seat loose of the dinette.  They had more screws holding it than was needed.  But of course there were many that was suppose to go in the floor that were short and only the carpet was holding at that point.

This morning we went to the Gulf Coast Medical Clinic to have our blood drawn and Nancy had to have a chest x-ray.
Next we stopped to have breakfast at the Breakfast Club.  It is not a Breakfast Club but a restaurant.
This was our first time eating there and we enjoyed it and will be back.
The price was good for what we had, so was the food and the service.

Our next stop was Walgreen's to get our flu and  pneumonia shots.
That took up half the day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Very good day

I hope all you people had a good Thanksgiving and didn't eat too much.  Or you may be like me and try to eat up most of the food so you will not have to eat it all week.

When I got this potato out of the bag to peel it so we could cook it, I notice it was looking at me with its lips sticking out ready to say something.  It looked like a potato head straight out of the bay.
I didn't hear it say anything , so I went ahead and peeled it.

We put the ham and potatoes in the Instant Pot to cook together and that worked out to be good.
Nancy did the sides while the Ham, potatoes were cooking.

So with the ham and potatoes, the sides of green beans, sweet potatoes, pickle eggs and hot rolls we had a very nice and quite dinner.

after dinner we watched a movie then took us a short Thanksgiving Day nap. It was a very nice day for us with each of our children calling us.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
