Rain and grilling

Things are about the same thing around the old home place.
At least we don't have to wear our mask when we stay at home.  It is required when entering in stores which I have been doing even before Florida put it in as a rule and it seems everyone is doing so now a days.

A few days ago I was going to take couple of sirloin steaks out of the freezer and put them on the grill. but I didn't get a chance to because it has been a rain storm each evening for over a week.
I did do up the steaks though, but they do not taste the same in the small table top oven that we have.
Sorry no photos because I was in such a hurry to eat them I forgot to take the photo.

The days usually start out like this.
And end up like this.
Yesterday I took a couple of loads down to the laundry room to do them up which I had finished up before 11:00 am.
Could not believe it but it didn't rain in the afternoon.  So I took a couple of ribeye steaks out of the freezer and grill them to perfection.
To prove it here is a photo (once again tasted so good I almost forgot the photo).
What's left of the steak with fried potatoes, good Bush's BBQ Beans with onion, tomato and cucumber.  Yeah really good tasting.

Today we will get into a little house cleaning.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

A little this and a little that

The weather here has been the same for a couple of weeks now and we are not use to it since we have always have gone north at this time.
The night time temperatures have been close to the 80's and day time at or near 93 with a thunder storm in the afternoon.
But yesterday's evening storm was something else!  I mean it poured the rain with the thunder and lightning It sounded and looked like we were in a battle zone.
After that let up later as the evening settled in with a ray of sun shine, everything looked better.

So this is the look we had before the dusk of the day came in.

The week has been as normal as it could be with me doing a load of laundry one day and then the next day of taken up the throw rugs and shaking them out, sweeping the floor and running the Swiffer wet pad over the floor.
It sure has been easy to keep the floor clean since I installed the vinyl plank floor down, much more clean then the carpet was.  also easier to do.

Not going to the store as much and when I do the mask is on the face.
Nancy is going to have to learn how to shop again when she does go shopping. she has not shopped  since back in March.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Things I will not repeat

Well as you can see, everything is about the same.
I could tell you the I've been out to the store a couple of times but I will not bother you with that.

Or I could give you a report on the weather each day, but I know it would be boring to read about the record or records of the high temperatures we are having with a chance of thunderstorms every day.

Or maybe tell you about what we had to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner like this  Chicken Parmigiana with a delicious pasta that we had for supper one day last week.
No I would not bother you with that!
OK, now seriously we still do not if or when we will be leaving here to make our trip north, it is still a wait and see situation.
I'm waiting until I know we will be going somewhere be before I buy the 4 new tires for the rear of the motor home.  Also I have not heard anything on my new glasses being in where I had them made.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Happy 4th of July

First thing I wanted to wish all of my readers a very Happy and safe 4th of July.
If you are traveling in your car please do be careful out there.  May you have the best ever day with your family and friends.

Nancy did get out for the first time since March.  Her hair had grown out so much that she just had to have it cut and also she had a head full of gray hair so she has it colored also.

Well it looks like we will be here longer than we expected to be.  After the latest report of the CODVID-19 we decided it best to stay put until things got a little better.
And the talk about a 14 day stay in the states that we would be in as we travel.
Also some of the campgrounds that we usually stay in are closed down and will not be opening anytime soon, if at all this year.

The only time I'm out and about is when we are in need of food and other things.

Gas has gone up ten cents a gallon in the last few days as it always has this time of year when people are traveling.

Thanks for atopping by and have a great day.
