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.

Frugal Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Kathy and I have really been enjoying these comfortable temperatures the last few days. We’ve been having the windows open enjoying the sounds of the birds and the cooler breezes with the oxygen enriched air blowing through the apartment. The best part of the fresh air is it helps us to sleep soundly at night.
Kathy had to go for her three month blood test today but instead of setting the alarm we took the we’ll get there when we get there attitude. The strange part is we slept like logs and just woke up and were out the door before 9:00 this morning. That doesn’t happen when we set the alarm and have the AC on at night. Since she cannot eat before these tests I will wait and eat at the same time as she does so as not to cause her temptation. Strangely she was done in less than ten minutes today.
With more errands to run we stopped at McDonald’s for breakfast. Micky D’s is not one of our favorite places to eat but we had a coupon that allowed both of us a coffee, a hash brown and sandwich for $4.99. To top it off today is the first day of their Monopoly Game for this year. Between our two breakfasts we managed to win a cheeseburger and small pop as well as a number of game stickers.
This guy has been really busy gathering food for the winter.
We are always seeing him skurrying across the parking lot.
Since we were driving by Walmart we stopped in to look around and do some walking. Again we lucked out finding more Christmas gifts. What the bad thing was that I thought we still had 93 days left until Christmas and I was wrong. Christmas is exactly 3 months from today in other words only 91 days left before the big day.
After we left Walmart we stopped to check if a clothing order had arrived at a store but it hadn’t so we headed to the trailer. We had emptied a number of containers from the other day when we had removed some of our food stock from the trailer to return. Again today we also took more of the items from the pantry to bring home for the end of the season.
As we left the trailer our stomachs were telling us it was past lunch time. Since we still had more Micky D coupons we braved having our second meal of the day there. Using the free coupons we had won earlier and a coupon lunch was less than $5.00.  Two meals for two people cost us less than $11.00 with the taxes which is not bad in one day.
After arriving back at the apartment we spent the afternoon sorting and putting our food from the trailer away before barbecuing some pork kabobs for supper. Now dishes are done and everything is put away it’s time to enjoy our evening. Thanks for stopping by and feel free to follow along with us and leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

There is a six-inch gap between the bottom

 of your shirt and the top of your pants.


  1. It's always nice when visits to the doctor or labs so smoothly and quickly.

  2. Don't think that you could do much better then that with coupons. At least a good reason to visit Mickey D's. Glad you both are sleeping better.

  3. Another nice fall day and cleaning out the trailer, always felt sad when we had to winterize our rv. We disliked that so much we decided it was much more fun to leave it stocked up and just move to warmer weather.

  4. definitely a sad season when you are closing up the rv....:( glad to see your both sleeping better...have to love this fall weather...we sleep better too with all the windows open....fresh air...awww
