And leftovers

 Nancy and I hope all of you had a very nice and enjoyable Thanksgiving.


It makes no difference if Nancy is feeling good or not, she likes to do up the dinner for Thanksgiving and so it was this Thanksgiving.

We didn't get a turkey because we had ham in the freezer and frig that needed to be eaten.
So, with the ham we had green beans, stove top stuffing with gravy, candied sweet potatoes and a roll.
Which was plenty enough for us since there will be leftovers for the next few days.

I didn't get out of the house for black Friday sales, I made the mistake one time and learn myself a lesson to not do that again.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Happy Thanksgiving

 I did want to say Happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers.   Not only this day but thanks for sticking with me all these years through thick and thin.
I just wish I could make the blog more interesting, but after all it is about what I do and most of the time it is not very much of anything.


Tuesday morning Nancy and I hard to go to LabCorp to have blood drawn.  Afterwards Nancy was feeling better than usual, so we went to Susie's restaurant for breakfast.
Then she said since she was out, she wanted to get her haircut.  After that she really surprised me when she agreed to go walk in the James E. Grey Preserve.

"Where did she get all that strength from".  

Of course, she had to rest a few times along the way.

It is always nice to be out and walk here.

We even stopped to sit at the river park along the way back home to enjoy the nice view.

I truly enjoyed this day to be out with my "Sweetheart" this day.

Thanks for stopping by and do have a great and Thankful day.

A few things

Have you noticed the older you get the faster time goes by.
Nancy and I were talking about it the other day or maybe last month? 

You may think something happened a week or two ago when actually it was a month or so.
And if I start into another room, please don't stop me to tell me something because I will forget what I was going to get in the other room!

Yeah, we laugh a lot at the things we often forget.


One thing I don't laugh at is some of the breakfasts Nancy has for me when she feels good enough to stand at the stove to get me a special breakfast.  Like the one the other morning, which was an omelet consisting of eggs, bacon, hash browns with vegetables, toast with blackberry jam and topped off with a good cup of coffee.
It may not be healthy to eat all of that, but man 'o' man was it a good way to start the day.

Thanks for stopping by and do have a great day.

Same O Same O

 We have slowed down seeing the doctor's a little but still have a few appointments in December.

I tell you I have never had this many things go wrong that I had to have so many appointments in one year.
Of course, I have not been this old either so maybe that the reason.

Well, the college football season is rolling to an end soon, but the basketball season is just getting started and I like that.

Nancy is about the same with her aches and pains that she has had for too many years.

Nancy and I rode out the hurricane-tropical storm Nicole just a lot of wind and rain.  The rain seems like it was coming sideways hitting the windows.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Using the old grill.

 I'm still just staying a little busy on some necessary things.


Like grilling some steaks for dinner.

Two nice size Sirloins so we only ate one of them and the other the next day.
they were a a good price so I could not turn them down. Like cheaper than the price of chicken.

Then there was a day grilling ground for some cheeseburgers.  It's just hard to turn down meat selling for a bargain.

Looks like the burgers are ready to take up.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Back to walking

 I seem too finally beginning to be getting stronger as each day goes by so Sunday, I decided to do a little walking.


I thought James E Grey Preserve would be a good place to go to.

To the starting area there is a board because that's where the river backs up to make it swampy.

There are different kind of berries along the trails and the birds seem to be enjoying eating them.

More berries.

In some places the swamp is 3-4 foot deep.

Near the end of the boardwalk is a covered resting place.

Start of the dirt trail.

Couple of benches by the water for a relaxing rest.

Kayak launch to make it easy to put kayak in the water.

Here are a couple of kayakers enjoying the water and a very nice day.

My short walk ended up being two miles long.  I have to tell you my legs could feel it Monday morning.

Thanks for stopping and have a great day.

Cooler weather

 The weather has changed to fall of the year with a temperature of 62* this morning.   The temperature forecasted for tonight is supposed to get down to 59*.  
Now that is beginning to feel more like winter for us here in Florida.


I don't know if it was the cooler weather or what, but I felt like making some of my almost famous macaroni salad.
I say that because in the wintertime is when I put it all together.
It usually takes me around two and a half hours to finish it because I have to dice up all the vegetable that go into the salad.

Even though the weather has turned cooler we have not had to turn our heat on because the temperature is in the eighties in the daytime. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
