Sick Monday

Monday March 19, 2018

Orlando, Florida

I got up right after Jim did this AM. He was not feeling good kept coughing. I made breakfast with the leftovers from yesterdays. I made bacon scrambled eggs with grilled onions and peppers, the potatoes shared a biscuit and the waffle. I  got ready and went to Line Dance class. I was up there for 2 1/2 hours. I thanked them only one more dance day left for me. I saw Helen stop in, we met yesterday at breakfast, I gave her my card she hugged me they were leaving now tomorrow we are suppose to have some bad weather. I hope I get to see them again some day, so nice.

When I got home Jim had put away most everything outside. I took a shower and got our salads ready. We had yogurt with strawberries too. We watched some 70 Show for awhile.

I made dinner turkey meat sauce for me, I made Jim's with beef both with grilled veggies. I put spaghetti squash in the microwave. It was really good. Then we went for a little walk up and got some ice cream. We walked over to the pool and stuck our feet in, was pretty nice. Jim thought the hot tub would feel good on his back. We went back put the ice cream in the freezer and got our swim stuff. We walked back to the pool, not a lot of people there. Jim got in the hot tub. I was talking to some people that came in right after us. They are full-timers too from California. They were telling us about the TT they have there. We didn't stay to long. The sky was really getting black, was suppose to storm and rain. So far we didn't get much, unless it comes latter. Changed and walked back, had our ice cream I did the dishes. We watch our shows.

Sunday at Home

Sunday March 18, 2018

Orlando, Florida

We got up had our coffee, did our morning thing, got ready and went up for breakfast. It was really good but we order to much on purpose, Jim wanted sausage and gravy on biscuits. I wanted a waffle and eggs. So we took 1/2 a waffle fried potato slices and a
biscuit home. There was a couples sitting across from us. Of course I started talking to them, Helen and David, they are from Brandon Florida. We talked about so my things, The Villages, golf carts, nails, CG we liked, full-time RVing and a lot more, before we new it an hour and half went by. They were so nice, RV people are just good people. I also saw Norma there too, and we chatted for a few minutes. She had been sick, but said she tried to find us when we had the yard sale Saturday, I told her where we were and told her to stop by later.

We said our goodbyes but unfortunately we did not get to say goodbye to the June's, they were leaving this AM around 11.

We had a lot of veggies we had to grill. So I started chopping and Jim started grilling. We had 3 or 4 things that he had to  double batch them, they all wouldn't fit on the grill at the same time.  He started with strawberry onions only had one but  it was huge. Then zucchini and yellow squash, peppers, carrots, green beans, and last some ribs. So he was grilling for hours, what a guy. While we were doing that Norma stopped by, we chatted a little outside, I invited her in to chat while I kept chopping. I made 4 salads too. She wanted to show me the bag she was making. She gave me a water bottle holder, and I told her I gave it away to a lady who bought some of my bags, so I gave her the one I just made.  She is  such a nice lady, we were line dancing together, a lot the other week. We had a nice visit. When she left we had our salads, finished cleaning everything up.

We watched some TV, and welcomed our new neighbors into the spot the June's were in. They have a big white hairy dog named Diesel. He was used to there other neighbor giving him a treat they have a FW too, I gave him a piece of chicken. Later we had dinner, ribs and the grilled veggies.

Then I wanted to go for a walk before it got dark. Jim had a few beers by then, He was grilling a long time, so lets just say it was an interesting walk. When we came back he wanted to start a fire, it was to windy and not safe when drinking. He went to bed  shortly
after. I watched some of my recorded shows, and made another water bottle holder.

For the last couple of nights I kept hearing this noise outside. So before I went to bed I went out to see if I could figure out what it was. It sounds like when you bounce a basketball once. I never did, but it sure was a nice night. I guess it was good I went out the light was still on and the awning was still out. Then went to bed.

St Paddy's Day at Home

Saturday March 17, 2018

Orlando, Florida

When we got up today I made smoothies, have not had one for awhile, keep forgetting to make one. We did our usual morning routine. Today here at TTO you can have an on site yard sale from 10 AM till 2. So about 9;40 we got out my two banana boxes of bags I make with recycled plastic bags. I put them out by the road. I started selling some very early on in the day. Even before I was really ready for the day.

I made some eggs with grilled onions and peppers. My brother Drew called. He couldn't hear my phone. I told him I would call him back. I had to finish my eggs and I had more sales, he thought I forgot about him, I didn't. We had a nice talk, I even got to talk with my other brother David too. Was really nice.

We sat outside was so beautiful, but windy. Cindy and John were on there walk with Nutmeg, they stopped by and we had a nice chat. I had to keep stopping our chat to attend to my bag sales. Was the best day of sales I ever had, and the easiest. A few people came back with friends to buy more.

For lunch I made unfried chicken and had more grilled veggies.

We got ready to leave, to go to my appointment to get my nails done at 4:00. We went right there, was weird going to someone else. Jim went over to Lowes to look for something while I was in the salon. We came right home after I was finished.

We watched a little TV and news. Had salad with a little more grilled chicken. I was reading my book outside a little but it has been making me so sleepy when I do. Our new friends, The June's, Gerry came over when I was reading and said the people that he met from PA, were coming over so we could all talk, they have a Cameo FW too. He invited them to join the club that we are all in now. CTC= Carriage Travel Club. We had a nice chat all  6 of us over with the Gerry and Diana. We all left right after the fireworks started, we all watched them for a few minutes. We all went home then. It was not as cold out as it had been.

I read some blogs while  Jim watched Hockey, we called it a night.

Line Dance Party # 2

Friday March 16, 2018

Orlando, Florida

Jim was up first today, I got up a little later, he says almost 2 hours, ok then. So when I did get up I made breakfast right away. I made potatoes, onion and peppers he grilled yesterday with ham and eggs and a little cheese. I got ready to leave for dance class. It starts at 10 AM. Was a lot of fun, always is. Talked with a few ladies that I never met before.

When I got home I made 4 salads, 2 for tomorrow. We ate alfresco was so beautiful out, the sky was so blue no clouds in the sky. It is so dry here no humidity, our skin is really getting dry. It just sucks the moisture right out of you. There is also a very high pollen count too. A high risk of wild fires, we are not having camp fires like we usually do in PA. We even have quite a bit of Florida firewood leftover.  
I called and made an appointment for tomorrow at 4 to get my nails painted, a lady I line dance with told me where to go, I hope I like it there.  I also had to call home to PA to make a reservation at Quintin Riding Club where we will stay for 2 weeks till TT Hershey opens.  I asked about the weather there, he said it was 40 windy, but sunny. Oh my, not ready for that yet.

After lunch we talked about what we wanted to do on the weekend, and beginning of next week. There was some chores I wanted to do. We had some wild critters visit our site too, a turtle and a crane with the red head, I forget what they are called. So I washed dishes, and the picnic table cloth needed washed, some critter had little dirty sandy foot prints all over it. Probably a squirrel. Washed a load of white cloths. I froze the ripe bananas that they give away at the produce stand yesterday. I ran my rainbow vacuum cleaner. As I call it all real life stuff. While I was doing all that, Jim fixed the one running light on the FW that was not working. We sat out and enjoyed the weather. Jim grilled more chicken. I finished the blog from yesterday. We ate grilled turkey burgers and veggies he did the other day. We also had some smoked chicken and veggie orzo soup I had in the freezer. After we ate we got ready to go to the Line Dance party tonight.  It was from 7 to 10. We did a few of the dances we love to do together. Had a few sweet treats they had for dessert. Jim left just after 9, he is not a fan of the non country music they play a lot of now to dance to. I really had fun, he goes with it just to make me happy, which he does. When I walked home took a shower, put the rest of the laundry away, I had washed earlier. Watched some TV he went to bed first.

Yea back to Line Dancing

Thursday March 15, 2018

Orlando, Florida

Didn't get up as early as I wanted to. But in time to go line dancing. I ate a yogurt and left. We had a nice group all the regulars I remembered, and some new people I met. I changed into my boots when I get there.  We are parked a lot closer now too. I danced until about noon.

I washed our sheets before I left and Jim hung them out on our clothesline he made. We had salads for lunch. We wanted to find the place that sells outdoor rugs, the June's told us about. We should have went at out last campground in Eustis, we were closer there. So we left it was a nice drive. The place is called Beasley MFG, Inc. in Center Hill Florida. They have all different sizes and colors. They cut to the size you want. And you can't beat the price. We wanted a new smaller rug, for short trips when we don't want to put out everything. We got a rug 6x10 and a big door mat size for $17.00. Cash and checks only, no cards or mac. Has been a long time since I wrote a check.  It was giving me so many ideas of different things we could do. The garage building does not look like much, but it is worth going. They also have sun shades too. They have been in same location last 35 of 37 years they have been open, and they don't advertise.

Then we talked about what else we wanted to do. We decided to go to Red Lobster. I was getting hungry with only having salad and all that dancing. It was really good, we shared an entrĂ©e, but also had an app that we shared and dessert too. So good, love it there.

Then we went to WalMart and food shopped. And that's all I got to say about that. I bore you enough without going into details. Then we went to Publix, they had a water kiosk in the lobby there. After we filled up with water we came home.

Jim watched Hockey on his outside TV. I was trying to get some of my shows watched. I was outside a little too, I chopped veggies and Jim grilled them, zucchini, green beans, onions and peppers he also grilled some chicken. We are all set for tomorrow.  I ate some grilled veggies, so good. I stayed up too late like I always do, I took a very late shower and went to bed.

Moving Day Back to Orlando

Wednesday March 14, 2018

Orlando, Florida

Jim was up first, I was up about 1/2 hour later, have to get going on moving day. I made ham eggs and potato, for breakfast. I arranged everything inside and Jim worked on the outside. Check out here is 11 AM, but you can't leave to early because check in here at TTO is 12 noon, not before.

When you get here you get a number, we had 26, and they take you to a site of your choice in order of arrival. We found a great large site with a cow pasture right behind us. really great, we love it here. We had a large turtle walk through the back of or site. And the cows arrived later too, fun to watch them.

When we got here, just after we backed into our site, I saw a Cameo FW, I told Jim that I think it was the June's. We met them here a few months ago, and went to the CTC Luncheon with them. I was right, they waived to us we said Hi. Could not believe we came in at the same time. We both went back to setting up. I made us our salads for lunch. We watched a little TV, it seamed like we got set up really quickly.
Then we went for  walk around the CG. We went into the activity center, it was buzzing with activity as usual. Bingo was about to start in the back. They had spaghetti dinner for sale. You got salad a bread stick with it and 2 large meatballs, for $8.00. Jim kept saying it smelled good I said get one. I took a few bites of spaghetti
was good. We walked home, we were going to sit out, the wind died down a lot. The June's stopped and asked if they could come over with there wine for a little visit. Of course, we had a nice chat wanted to here about there cruise.

We called it a night, was going to be a cold night. Jim made 4 turkey burgers on the grill. I made some veggies. We watched some news. About 9 PM the fireworks started first you hear it, when you look out back behind our FW above the trees in the pasture you could see the fireworks. Was so beautiful, they go off every night tomorrow I'm going to try to take a picture of them. So glad to be back here.

Nice Day at HOME

Tuesday March 13, 2018

Eustis, Florida

I was up first, smelled that coffee. Jim was up shortly after. I made my New Paleo banana blueberry nut pancakes, and eggs and bacon.
We had things we wanted to do today, because tomorrow is moving day, going to Orlando. So after we watched a little Today Show, we went outside he wanted to wash the camper and the truck. Well I like to think I try to help but lets face it I really don't do much to help. I washed 5 loads of laundry. And cooked, I almost always cook. I had some eggs and potatoes I made in the Instant  
Pot  I just realized I should have made them at the same time, but I didn't. It is really cool you can, I just forgot. We had lunch alfresco, I love to eat outside. Jim was still working, but he stops to eat.

It was cool out early on, warms up a little later and not much breeze today was nice. I wanted to read my book outside today. Was to cold in the shade and to hot in the sun. Jim had a call he talked to his friend inside. The truck was parked behind the FW in the shade I sat in the truck and read at least an hour or so. Was perfect temp, I kept opening the door more or shut it a little when it got to cold. Then Jim came out to find me, wondering where I was.

We went in I finished our salads I did earlier and made us each one for tomorrow. I made 1 and 1/2 grilled ham and cheese and a few sweet potato French  fries. We went for a little walk and took the trash and recycled cans out. We usually do it on our way out but we don't pass the dumpster on the way out. Yea probably TMI, anyway
we watched a little TV, I stay up to late. I touched up my nail polish. I got my last gel nail off my thumb today. Watched a little Tonight Show.
