Sun ~ Some Clouds ~ Cool Day ~ Kylee Ice Skating ~ Betty (Laney) Mueller ~ Slow Cooker Onion Potatoes ~ Cloud Chart ~ Dude ~ TV Shows

Good 49º sunny morning. I have to say, even the heat is not a problem since we FINALLY have sunny days! All that gloom in past months was depressing~!

Yesterday Mike of All Natural Pest Control was here, checking the bait boxes. Looks like the ground squirrel population is decreasing because of them. Yes!!!

The clouds came in, it was super nice and cool, 60ºs  for quite awhile... We hit 73º by 11:30. Still heavenly outside! We topped out at 87º. No AC on, doors and windows open. Ahhhh......

Breakfast was a Schwans ham/cheese omelette topped with Parmesan, tomato, and Greek non-fat yogurt with dried veggies on top.

My friend Lovella, aka Lov, shared her great granddaughter's ice skating video with me. She is 12. A blue ribbon champ! Go Kylee!!!

Today is my oldest sister's 88th  birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BETTY!

You want some potatoes to go with your barbecued steak? Instead of heating up the kitchen cooking them in the oven, try this easy slow cooker recipe....

2 pounds russet potatoes, thinly sliced (about 8 small potatoes)
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. pepper
1 pkg Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1/3 cup olive oil
4 qt or larger slow cooker
1. Spray inside of slow cooker with cooking spray
2. Add the potatoes in a spiral design
3. Sprinkle on garlic, pepper, and onion soup mix
4. Drizzle olive oil evenly over potatoes
5. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours without opening lid during cooking time.

Here is a chart of what types of clouds there are...

Later Dude was limping REALLY BAD on his left rear foot. He had gone out when Mike was here and ran to the barn and back. Even Mike said, "he sure likes to run". Yes he does! So, first thing today I was going to take him to the vet's, but the limping has subsided. We'll wait and see.

Last night I watched a new show I had not seen before, Animal Cops Phoenix. It's on the Animal Planet channel. Great stories and people who abuse animals get cited!!!!  Yes! Animals are taken from abusive situations.

Then I watched some Family Feud and Andrew Zimmerman's Bizarre Foods. Some super strange foods people prepare and eat!!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

Insurance Awareness Day

My favorite agent:

Check his site...
Insurance Awareness Day has got to be one of your top holidays, right!? Now, at this point, one must be asking... Why Insurance Awareness Day? Good question.
Insurance, be it home, auto or life insurance, offers you peace of mind that if something happens, you will be financially protected. Of course when it comes to life insurance, if something happens, you won't be around to worry about the outcome.  
Insurance is a gamble. If you buy it, you're gambling that something will go wrong. If you don't buy it, you're gambling that something will not happen.
Were not sure what you should do to enjoy and appreciate this day. We are certain what the insurance companies would like you to do today........

As for me, my agent, my son, takes exceptional good care of me and my insurance!!
