My cold is better, but Tornadoes are flying by! We are fine.

Where are we today ?
       Well I had a pretty good nights sleep last night, between the cough suppressant and decongestant recommended by the pharmacist, and a remedy that Monique suggested. She gave me some Vicks Vapor rub to put on the bottom of my feet and wear socks to bed, Hmmmm??
        Hey something worked, chest pains and coughing stopped, headaches gone, me feeling almost brand new this morning! 
        But then the weather was trying to give us a rough time, tornado warnings early morning so we just tuned in the local tv channels and watch where its going. Heading into this county but west of us about 10 miles. Touched down in Mobile and a few other spots but we were lucky no affects here. Just a bit of wind and rain. By 9 am all is good, the early morning temp were close to 70f and very humid but as the day progressed temps dropped and by 5 pm it's only about 40f. The weather system has passed us by, cooled down, but we are all comfy in our home.
heavy rains this morning for  bit
        I spent some time installing our new, free Sirius Satellite radio today, the other one was causing problems, so this was a nice bonus for us. Really make our driving trips much more fun, just toe trapping and singing along down the road.
checked out the pool and hot tub but did not go in :<(
        A few walkabouts the resort today, get them legs working again after sitting in the car for so many hours, chat with a few people here and there and picked up our new MI FI Package from Verizon that arrived late afternoon. Will tell you about that in my next posting. 
nice blue skies for Happy 3/4 Hour
        Well our package arrived in time for Happy Hour and we do have priorities  So our neighbors outside and we need to join them for a bit and chat but the north wind coming in ended our social time rather quickly so inside before 4:30, fire up the oven and whip a meatloaf for tonights supper. Perfect for this kind of weather.
tasty meatloaf
add a few taters, and brocoli we are all set

        Hey guess what our day is done and we had so much fun doing nothing, that it was awesome!
        Thanks for stopping by for the read, did not do much but that is just fine by us.

  1. Saw the reports on the news about your weather. Looks like on the radar you got the bottom end of the storm that came through the mid-states. You certainly dodged it on your trip this past week.

  4. That hot tub sure looks inviting but it's probably not the place to be during a storm. Stay out of the way of those tornadoes!!

  6. We'd like to see some of those cool nights. Temps just barely get down to 75 here at the Keys.
    New remedy for cold & flu, have you heard? Peel & cut an onion in half and put near your bed at night. Onion absorbs germs & turns black. Check it out on my FB page.
