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.

Relaxed Organizing Day.

Our Location today is Crystal River, Florida.

The summer time weather that we are experiencing the last five days is definitely making us feel better. It even makes us sleep so much better that we are sleeping later as well.
After a pleasant breakfast and a quick glance at the computer I had planned on reorganizing the trailer’s basement that had a lot of last minute items crammed inside. The biggest part of not having any space was that many things had been packed separately in individual bags. Once things were sorted like with like and organized there was much more space.
There were a couple of lounge chairs that were on our balcony at the apartment that are now in the basement as they should be. We have a set of chairs we normally keep in the trunk of the car but we used last summer and are still in the basement taking extra space. Time will also make space as some of the supplies in the basement became stockpiled and will be used up with a little time.

Kathy’s doctor had encouraged her to spend more time in the sun to help increase her body’s supply of vitamin D so she spent time outside keeping me company, reading a book and so much needed relaxing.
After getting the basement straightened Kathy and I watched a couple of rigs taking residence on nearby sites. A quick glance at their license plates showed they were from Florida and will probably only be here for the weekend.

With a cool breeze blowing Kathy and I went for our first walk around the front lower part of the park. After having been cooped up in our apartment most of the winter we need to break in to walks in the great outdoors slowly and it felt good.
Another quick check of the Weather Channel for back home shows our kids have been enjoying spring like temperatures this past week but will be going back to seasonal weather starting Sunday.

Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! Be sure to go back and check the photos.

It’s about time.
