Trying to stay busy


The laundry room finaly got open after being down since early November. It was supposed to be down for remodeling, but the only thing I saw inside was that it got a new paint job on the walls and ceiling.

 Also three of the washers were out of order. I did do three loads of laundry and that saved me some time by not having to drive five miles down the road to a laundromat.

The week has been around the same as the week before in that I took the rugs out for a good shaking, aweept the floors then used the swiffer to shine them up.

 Yesterday Nancy put together a really good tasting stir fry. It came out of a frozen pack but she added more noodles and extra spices to make it very good. 

Our weather here is still on the cool side with the temperatures some days being 20* lower than normal, still better than having snow.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Nikita Khrushchev's speech

Nikita Khrushchev sent chills down my spine In 1956 when I heard Russia’s Communist leader Nikita Khrushchev said, “We will take America without firing a shot. We do not have to invade the U.S. We will destroy you from within....” I distinctly remember thinking , “That will never happen.” And now I am horrified to see Khrushchev’s words coming true.

Maybe not Khrushchev but maybe someone else.

  That statment I have thought of many times down through the years. A sad day in America yesterday.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Cabbage Rolls and Football

Nancy and I made it into the start of a New Year. We did as planned for new years eve.
The cabbage was rolled and put in the pot to cook. The last two years we have been doing them a little different in that we have cooked them in the Instant Pot instead of on the stove. Doing the cabbage rolls in the Instant Pot for 72 minutes vs low heat overnight on the stove top is much better.
Of course when they were ready we had to sample them to make sure they would pass the test.
Yup, good to go, Nancy said they were better than last year.

So yesterday it was eating cabbage rolls and watching football.
A nice relaxing day with the children calling wishing us a Happy New Year.

Hey you can leave a comment if you would. I would like to know you a little bit.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Anniversary 64 and a Happy New Year

Well Nancy and I made another year together. Just think one of my aunt said it would not last six month's when we got married. Our love for each other grows stronger every year.

It must have been the big wedding we had, yeah sure.

We got married at the county court house with a cost of $5.00 I gave the court clerk for the marriage. Hey that was big money in 1956.

May all of my readers and their family have a very healthy New Year.

Nancy and I will be eating inside today instead of going out for dinner as we usually do. The one thing we always do is we will be making cabbage rolls for our New Year Day dinner.

Our forecast today is for sunny with the temperature to be in the low 80's.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Christmas day and after

I hope all of you had a great and wonderful Christmas.

Nancy and I had our Christmas Day of putting a small dinner together. I told Nancy that I would go out and get us something to eat, but she wanted to do the dinner herself. She said she know how I like to watch ball games and snack on the left overs after dinner.

So this is what we had for our Christmas Dinner, Ham, Potatoes, candied sweet potatoes, green beans onion rolls and macaroni salad that I put together the evening before. I tasted really good, Nancy hasn't lost her touch of cooking a delicious meal.


These egrets were on the lawn trying to find food to eat.

Yesterday was my usual Saturday of finding some college ball games to watch.

It is going to start a warming trend this week with today going up to 67* and the rest of the week being in the middle 70's.

The last two mornings we have got up to the temperature of 34*-feels like "its cold".

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Merry Christmas

First thing is that I want to wish all of my readers a very Merry Christmas.

If you need to travel during the Holidays be extra careful, with all the things going on this year I don't want anything happen to you.

Well the Doctor report on the MRI is just as I thought it would be.  The foot has a gathering of fluid and the ankle joint shows arthritis.  But the good news is I do not have to wear the boot any more.

Getting over that I just couldn't have anything hurting me, so yesterday I slammed the motorhome front door on my thumb. Boy, don't do that it really hurts! 

Our weather todays temperature is going to be up t0 78* with rain this afternoon and tomorrows temp will be a high of 54*. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

I had to get out to Walmart yesterday to buy a few things and man was everybody else out there  doing their shopping.

Good NCAA games.

The weather is about the same with the temperatures being on a yoyo going up and down. the night time it is in the low 50's and the 40's with a couple of mornings down to 37*.

I have one more appointment with the doctor to see the results of the MRI and with the blood work.

I don't expect any surprise on either one of them.  As far as the foot and angle goes its one of those things about being old everything takes longer to heal up.

Been going to the store only when we need something, of course that is still the normal even before the virus.

There were a couple of good NCAA football games on and basketball  that I watched.

Nancy made some of her good chili so that was good eating for me while I enjoyed the games.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
