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.

Wierd Freezing Day

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

My body’s internal clock continues to wake me earlier than necessary so I was awake before 7:00 again this morning. Kathy on the other hand jumped out of bed this morning and it wasn’t because I wasn’t there. At exactly 8:00 this morning the contractors who have been redoing all the apartment balconies started on ours with a jackhammer. When you here one of those going off you don’t need an alarm clock. It sounded like there was a war going on outside our walls.
We managed to have breakfast and to repack things that we need to bring to the trailer. We are now leaving for Florida in 3 days. By the time lunch time rolled around we were both starting with headaches from all the noise.
After enjoying a piping bowl of homemade vegetable beef soup we packed up the truck with clothing and nonperishable food stocks that the freezing temperatures wouldn’t spoil and headed to the trailer at Guardian Storage. I loaded everything inside while Kathy started sorting where things needed to go. I went back outside and used the jumper cables to power the fan on the furnace because the trailer battery is at our son’s home on a trickle charge. We managed to get everything put where it belongs without freezing ourselves but we still had to keep our coats on.
Once the inside was all battened down I had Kathy stay inside the truck while I hooked up to the trailer. The reason for doing this was to pick up the wooden plank ramps the trailer is parked on and bring them out to our son’s for storage. If we were to leave them lay on the ground while we are away they wouldn’t be there when we’d returned.

By the time we got back to the apartment the contractors had moved to a few floors above our unit making it much quieter. By 5:00 they pack up for the day so we got to enjoy a more relaxing supper. We also enjoyed the warmth of the apartment compared to the windblown storage yard.

Come 8:00 tomorrow morning we are sure that we won’t be sleeping in again. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
