Am I holding the map upside down?
Yes, you are hearing an awful lot of whining and whimpering from this "snowbird". It is just plain cold. I know it is like a broken record hearing about the weather again, but I am amazed that the morning temperature in Gulf Shores is lower than the temperature in Minneapolis, MN. The only saving grace is clear skies, bright sunshine and the promise of this unusual cold front moving out. As I said in yesterday's blog, thankfully it is not 15" of snow!
A comment yesterday from Judy (Travels with Emma) prompted me to post pictures of my new toy. I have never owned a toaster oven before now and I am wondering why I waited so long. My answer seems to always be the same...I don't spend money easily without buyers remorse. This time is different. I baked chicken for dinner last night in it...Wow, crispy, juicy and delicious with nothing but olive oil, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and pepper. I am sold! So thank you to Judy, I am giving Breville a free advertisement for their Smart Oven.
Unpacking it, I was instantly impressed with the power cord of all things. You know how cumbersome the three-pronged plugs can be? This should be standard on all plugs for us nimble fingered seniors.
Bob has just gotten up for the day and it is showtime...have to go now. Thanks for checking up on us...have a good day.
