Strawberry Cake

Yesterday I just had to get out of the house.  I've been inside way to long the only time I've been outside was to take the trash to the dumpster.

First place was to the roadside market for some tomatoes at .69 a pound where as the stores want $1.49 a pound.  I also bought banana's at .27 a pound, the store price is around .59 a pound.
The price on strawberries is about the same everywhere because the Plant City Strawberry crop has just come in and everyone has them on sale.

I have been wanting ham salad for sometime so I stopped at the Publix to buy me some. Their ham salad is not great but taste better than any other that we have bought.

My next stop was Winn Dixie to get a package of smoked pork chops that Nancy has been wanting.
Nancy fixed the pork chops along with green beans, slaw and fried potatoes for a very good supper.
For dessert we had some more of the Strawberry Cake with coffee that put the finishing touches on the meal.

Today is my regular Saturday watching the College Basketball Games on the tv as I do each Saturday.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Sunny and Cool

The days are still being cloudy then sunshine and the wind is still blowing. 
Yesterday was the new week ad for Winn Dixie and Nancy saw they had a Strawberry Short Cake on sale for $6.00.  She said she would sure like to have one and so would I so I bought one.
Evening time didn't come any to soon we cut right into it and the cake tasted as we thought it would.

on the way back from the store I drove out a couple of streets toward the Gulf waters.
These people have a very nice backyard with the canal for their boats that they can take out to the Gulf.

The wind had diminished enough for me to let the patio awning out this morning.  I just hope it last long enough that I will not have to roll it back in soon.

The temperature is suppose to get down in the high 40's tonight.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Valentine Day

Yesterday started out as an all cloudy day, then in the middle of the day for a couple of hours it was a cloudless all blue skies day.  then back to the cloudy day.

I took time to take part of the laundry down to the park laundry room.  It doesn't seem hard to do the laundry because our site is close enough the I can carry our laundry down in a matter of a few minutes. I put the clothes in the washer come back home and when the washer has had time to waher the clothes I go back to put them in the dryer. The dryer takes about 45 minutes to finish so it back home until the clothes have finished drying.

Today is Valentine Day and I have bought Nancy candy in a valentine box since before we were married.  The other day she told me she would rather have a pizza today instead of candy so I shall grant her wish.

We still had some Pinto Beans leftover so Nancy fried cabbage to go with the beans.  The Pinto's seem to taste better the longer you eat them and they tasted mighty good yesterday.

Going to bed last night it felt a little warm so I opened the window which is located over the head of our bed.  Sometime during the night it had cooled down enough that it felt cool so I closed the window.

The temperature is going to get up to 77* today so it will be a nice day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

The College Basketball Games that I was wanting to see Saturday came on earlier in the day so that gave me a chance to get out and do a few things.

I pulled out the patio awning that had been stored in the up position for all most a week because of the constant wind.  I also set up the small table, chairs and rugs. I did find the one rug that I thought had blown away, it was under the car.

I told Nancy that I would like to have some Pinto Beans and Corn Bread so that was a trip to the store for Butter Milk. That with some slaw made for some good eating.

I'm about  95% better and doing good but Nancy still has that deep cough so she still has some to go before she starts feeling better.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Flea Market

Yesterday was the first time in a week that I felt good enough to want to get out of the house and move around.  So I went down to the USA Flea Market see what they had.  One thing I bought was some Ball Bungee Cords.  The ones that I have are old and the elastic is stretched that they are no good.
It sure was good to get out in the sunshine and enjoy the day.

While I was out Nancy wanted me to go to Walmart and buy her some cough syrup and Vick's Vapor Rub.  She says she is feeling better but she still has that deep cough.

Today I will be back inside because it is College Basketball Game Day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

No Snow Here.

We had a cool down from yesterday morning, in fact it is 46* this morning that is 20* cooler than yesterday.  So no snow here but plenty cold for us.

It seems that no matter the temperature the wind just keeps blowing all the time.
The other night when I let in the patio awning I folded up our chairs and put them under the motorhome but I left the two small rugs out.  So in the morning when I went outside I came up with just one rug the other one was no where in site.

The Fantastic Fan I install last year has really be nice and we have been using in every day.  Even when the temperature gets up close to 80* we can turn on the fan open a window and get a cool breeze flowing through. 
It is 12 volt so we appreciate it more when we are parked in a place when we do not have electric.

I think I'm finally beginning to feel better than I have in a week.  But now Nancy is coming down with what ever I had.  That was kind of expected though.  When you live in such a small space you can bet that the germs get passed around from one person to the other it has happened before and sure to happen again.

I think I may  got down to the USA Flea Market today to see if they have anything I can't do without.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Tom Brady's Jersey

I went to see the doctor Monday, it looks like I have the bug that's going around.
I've got it with a sinus problem, sore throat and coughing.
So I'm on a 6 day Z-Pac plus three other medicines.  To tell the truth its only helping very little and hopefully the meds will kick in and do better. 
I've lost my appetite and the result of that I've lost a little weight.

Well the Super Bowl is over but now the news is about Tom Brady's lost jersey.  I imagine someone is planning on making big money on that.   Of course that would be a hard item to get rid of unless they offer a reward for the return of it with no questions asked.

The forecast for our area was for the storms that hit in Louisiana were going to be heading for us.
I went out last night at 10:00 pm to let the patio awning in and lightning in the distance.
Not a good time to have a metal rod in your hand letting the awning in!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
