It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Simple Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

I’m sure that Kathy is counting down the hours to our leaving on Tuesday which is 3 days before the start of our next adventure. Again last night she kept waking every hour and fighting to fall back to sleep. Myself I’m suddenly sleeping most of the night and not having trouble to fall asleep.
After breakfast we headed to the Credit Union to pick up travelling cash for next week. Once that was done we headed to the grocery store for supplies for the trailer pantry and fridge. We made it home by noon.
With lunch completed we headed to the computers to catch up on blog reading and E-mails. I also called our son Gary at his in-law’s home. He had called and left a message while we were out running our errands. They decided to come back and let the kids have a visit with the Grandparents before they head back to school on Tuesday. We made arrangements to get together tomorrow at a local municipal park. That way the kids could play on the equipment and splash-pad while the adults could visit and enjoy an outing.
After we hung up I continued reading blogs while Kathy needed a rest due to her poor night time sleep of the last few nights. Her nap lasted well over an hour and a half but she said it felt like only a few minutes.
We gathered more stocks that had to be brought to the trailer so we wouldn’t be dealing with it in the rain that is predicted for Tuesday and to pick up a couple of lawn chairs for tomorrow. Kathy packed away the food stocks while I checked about a little project in the outdoor kitchen.
Once she was done we went to A&W for supper using a coupon to reduce our costs. While we enjoyed a pleasant conversation with our meal I suddenly realized that we had forgotten to get the lawn chairs from the trailer.
After returning to the trailer and getting the chairs we stopped at Walmart to walk around and pick up a few supplies we had been unable to get at the grocery store.
Our choice of not pulling our trailer during a holiday weekend was a wise one. People were zig-zagging in and out of the lanes of traffic, were stopping in the middle of the intersections and then turning across other lanes plus talking on the phone while driving and almost causing accidents.
We both breathed a sigh of relief to make it home unscathed. Besides looking forward to being back on the road for a short trip on Tuesday we also noted that it’s only 115 days left until Christmas Day. Thanks for following along. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Did you hear about the two men from the monastery

who opened a fast-food seafood restaurant?

One was the fish friar, and the other was the chip monk.


  1. Holiday weekends have always been a good time to lay low until the dust settles.

  2. Being full time, we always like to be settled in somewhere for the weekends especially the long ones. There is enough traffic on the roads and we don't need to be part of it.
