indoor Sunday

Good morning.
Well, yesterday was definitely and indoor day. Although the rain subsided in the early afternoon, it was windy and cold, with a high of only 51.  :-(
Sooo, I spent most the day painting. I finished the living room ceiling. Now the entire house is painted except a few doors.
And as what is fairly normal for crappy weather days, Craig fixed a tasty dinner.
 he made a potato, ham casserole and I did oven roasted carrots.
These carrots are really easy and really good!
clean the carrots, cut thicker ones so all are about the same size. Toss in a zip-lock bag with 2 Tbl olive oil, 1 tsp each of balsamic vinegar, garlic and thyme. Bake at 400 for 30-45 min. or until tender. Yum!
For Craig's casserole, he used one box of scalloped potatoes, one box of hash brown potatoes, sauteed onions and peppers, leftover ham cut into bite sized pieces, and baked at 325 for 45 minutes.
I also went online and ordered a medicare brochure. Craig will be 65 this next Jan. and we need to start figuring out all there is about medicare and the different parts and costs. Craig also had a customer Saturday whose on medicare and said to call the Tri-County Office on Aging. They can sit down with you and help navigate all the different parts. I think he'll do that as he gets closer to signing up.
And today looks to warm up a bit, so hopefully I'll get out and get some outside stuff done.
Now time to get going.


  1. And you didn't invite me for dinner!!!! Lol, that looks good. Nutty weather right? We went from high temperature and humidity Saturday, to almost snow by Sunday morning. Good to work in the garden however, mosquitoes can't fly very well with snow suits on.

  2. It's 80 here at 8 PM. I went through all that Medicare stuff for our youngest. Glad you have someplace you can go for help.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
