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.

Feeling A Lot Like Winter

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It was another surprising night to have slept the entire night without waking up any time through the night. As predicted the temperature was cool and comfortable at 9:00 but it was all downhill from there. The temperatures dropped from 45 F (7 C) at 9:00 to just above the freezing mark by noon with cold winds that were well below chilling you to the bone.

Once breakfast and the normal computer work were finished for the morning Kathy and I watched a bit of television. The Peter Walsh show Enough was on the OWN Network. He helps people who become so overwhelmed from the messes they have in their homes they just can’t bring themselves to part with anything. These people are basically one step down from Hoarders. He helps them to deal with the emotional detachment from things as minor as magazines they brought home to read years before but never read. Other excuses for keeping some of this stuff is they want to give it to their children. He also teaches these people organizational skills that helps keep themselves in check.

For many of us who chose to get rid of our sticks and bricks we were able to handle that kind of detachment to stuff on our own. Unfortunately many of our critics just don’t seem to understand how much freedom getting rid of that stuff has given us. Instead they are more than willing to criticize us for our ability to travel and in the next breathe wish they could do the same thing but they don’t want to give up their stuff and make their life simpler and have more time and money.

After lunch Kathy and I bundled up to bring a couple of chairs from off our balcony out to the trailer. The reason for bringing them with us is they are recliner chairs that really don’t fit on our balcony. Also when we leave in January we need to clean off the balcony for the contractors who will be refinishing it while we are gone. Good Timing!

Remember the cold wind I mentioned earlier it was also causing a problem for trying to close the basement door down on my arms and head. Once that was finished we did a walk around Walmart and then did the same around Canadian Tire where I picked up some Diesel Fuel stabilizer. I was quite surprised when I found that the price of the stabilizer was normal price 50% cheaper at the Canadian Tire store.

By the time we got home we had seen a lot of unpredicted white flakes flying across the road and swirling on the pavement when we were at the traffic lights. That meant we needed more of the Taco Soup we made yesterday to warm ourselves back up. With Christmas being only 31 days away it’s beginning to feel a lot like Winter. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
