It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Still Organizing

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.
Even though we've been in our apartment since July 15th, we are still trying to make things just right. We have everything except our office the way we want it. The fact that we were away travelling also slowed down the progress in the apartment.

So in an attempt to better achieve this, I designed an add-on to put on top of our file cabinet. We spent the day at our son's home in Amherstburg, cutting out material for this project.

However there was a problem in the act of accomplishing this. In order to minimize the sawdust in the garage, I figured it would be easier to cut it using saw-horses outside.  Just as we started the cutting, the wind started to gust, and when it wasn't gusting, we were busy sweeping the snowflakes off the wood so we could see our lines. Needless to say we headed back inside as soon as the cutting was done.

Once all the pieces of the project were together, it looked pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. More time was spent sanding, wiping the dust off, and finally staining the whole thing before calling it a day. With the wood stove going overnight it should be dry enough to bring home tomorrow to install. Most importantly is a big thanks to my son Kevin, for the use of his garage, and personal help on this project, because without his help I'd still be working on it..

We will stop by our trailer to install the new A.C. covers on the trailer, hoping there's no snow accumulation overnight. Then it's off to pick up our cabinet extension.

With this extension in place, it will eliminate a stand-alone shelving unit, and open up very valuable floor space. When we had our home our office was 1.5 times the size of this room we have today.

 So slowly everthing is starting to fall in place.

Another thing I almost forgot to mention, Kathy has already finished wrapping all the Christmas gifts, for the Kids and Grandkids.

It's about time.
