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.

Writing Blogs

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.
Today Kathy and I got serious about taking care of business between our adventures. Even though we are somewhat draggy today there were still chores needing to be done. This morning was spent mostly at the computers catching up on E-mails and Reading Blogs we follow.
After lunch it was full speed ahead. We sorted the laundry together and Kathy did the pretreat while I readied things for the trip downstairs. After I left with the laundry Kathy started cleaning the dust that had gathered since we left on our trip first by dusting than vacuuming by the time I had completed the wash.
Once the dryers were loaded I came back upstairs while we had a talk and again reading more blogs. From the time I went down to fold the clothes downstairs and returned to the apartment Kathy had been doing her magic in the kitchen preparing meals that would last until we leave on our next adventure on Friday.
Before supper I started writing an E-mail to our RV dealer about a few problems that had popped up on our trip. After supper I tried attaching 5 cropped photos of those problems. When I attempted to send it outlook was going to break it up into 65 messages. Trying the best I could to change the settings on the program it continued to want to disect this message. Finally I had no choice but to send the message without the photos.
After stopping at our daughters for our Sunday night visit only to find nobody home we stopped at the grocery store for needed food stocks.
Back home on the computer it is not unusual for new bloggers to have difficulty to have something to write about. When experienced bloggers start posting that they need a break or have nothing to talk about they are missing the point.
The reason we all blog first and foremost is a log, a journal, a post or diary of what we did today. This is supposed to be for our own benefit as well as for our family & friends & especially as we age we all need to have some way to remember things. If we elect to let only certain other people view these personal writings that is also fine. If we elect to allow any and everyone who wants to use their time of day to read our writings or ramblings that is also great.
We do not have to write on a daily basis because we feel the need to entertain our followers. We do so because we want to remember what we did or how we felt about world events or other things in our lives. If we are travelling or are ill or have chores to do or do not feel up to writing on any particular day it is not a crime and we should not have to announce that there will be no post today. The reason is because we are writing for ourselves and everyone will understand even if you take a few days away.
Had to get that off my mind because Kathy and I will be back on the road in 5 days for a weekend in Frankenmuth, Michigan. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.

  1. Thank you Rick for reminding me about the whole reason I decided to write a blog. You may have to remind me again after a little while when I forget your special words.

  2. Thanks for the Pilot/Flying J RV PLUS card comment on my blog! I'm looking it up as soon as I post this and I'm going to apply for that card. I often stop at one or the other station, and didn't know they had all that for RVers. And probably for truckers. :)

    I'm glad I found your blog and I look forward to going back and reading your past posts and following you on the roads ahead.

  4. Always busy with something to do. And Blogging should be exactly what you said. Do it when you can and have something you want to write about.

  5. Good thoughts on blogging. Publishing a post simply to announce you don't have anything to say has always struck me as a bit odd and left me wondering what was the real reason for that?
