Rain and Sun today

We had a mixed bag today but on the whole it turned out OK. As usual we started the upstairs fireplace but could have left it unlit since it still was pretty warm in the house. Shortly after the downstairs insert took over and the house was cozy and warm all day.
I found a squash today that had started to have a bad spot so I decided to use it in a stir-fry. It turned out very tasty. Now I am trying to figure out what I will cook tomorrow. I find that is the hardest thing about cooking, making up my mind what it will be.
I am following Wandering Willy's Blog. He is taking the same route we used to take the last few trips we went South. The last time we stayed overnight in Jackpot I won $ 174.-- at one of the casinos. That was a lot of fun. We don't normally visit Casinos except for their great buffets. We allow ourselves $ 10.-- each and when that is gone, we're gone too. So far one of us has always been lucky.
We have extra medical insurance for 40 days but I cannot see going to Arizona just for that length of time. It takes us 5 days there and 5 days back that only leaves 30 days for fun and then we would have to return. Bah Humbug!!
Since nothing exciting happened today I shall say:
That's all folks !!! Good night.



  1. Hmmmmm, 30 days anywhere other than sitting at home sounds pretty good to me & especially if it's to a warmer climate. I find it's mentally stimulating to break with routine whenever possible. Kind of gives a person a new perspective of where they are in life:))

  2. We love our 30 days in paradise, we could give you a e-mail of the place we rented last year, so nice and peaceful in Apache Junction, all equipped. 29" 5th wheel, in the backyard, nice and private. We took our bikes, lots of canals to ride along, library close by...
    It is a beautiful part of the country, lots of hiking close by.
    Very Nice couple...
    Take Care

  3. You should come and visit me!!!!
