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.

Where Did The Time Go?

Our Location today is Apopka, Florida.

After having worn my partial plate all day yesterday with no discomfort I felt things were back to normal and I was right. I slept for two hours and stared at the ceiling for another two before I went to read on the computer. Finally I started feeling tired again so I did manage to get another couple of hours sleep before getting up at 8:30.
Ego whole grain waffles with mixed berries and whipped cream.
Kathy wanted something for breakfast this morning so we had defrosted some frozen berries last night to put on top of our waffles. It is nice to spoil ourselves once in a while.
While I was still working on the computer Kathy managed to get a second campground reservation booked this time in Largo, Florida for the week our daughter and her family come down. Now she is still researching other parks to fill in the last two weeks of March.
I was outside by 11:00 so that I could finish wiring in our new batteries. It didn’t take long to strip the cables and install the lugs but I needed to drill holes in the stands to create a grounding point. By that time Kathy thought we should have lunch because she was starting to go stir crazy from staring at the computer screen. Later before hooking up the cables I used red colored Rescue Tape to cover the positive cable connectors insulating them from shorting against metal and making them easier to identify. The way I have set up the battery racks that I made inside the front part of the trailer gives us room to add more batteries at a later date so we can eventually add solar panels and be able to dry camp off the grid.
Red Rescue tape on the cable lugs for safety.
Once I was finished that job I started writing down measurements for my next project on the truck. I had purchased metal roof trim at Home Depot over a week and a half ago and now it was time to lay them out. It took me nearly three hours to complete the first piece but had the second piece finished in an hour. The reason for this was I had noticed that on rainy nights when I park the truck near a curb it’s impossible to see where the outside dual is compared to the curb. Kathy has also banged up her legs on the step bar getting into the truck on dark nights a few times because she couldn’t see it. My project is to add amber clearance lights under the cab to protect Kathy from the step bar and hopefully allow me to see how close to a curb I am without looking like a redneck.
Barbecued hamburger, twice baked potato,brussel sprouts and dill pickle.
By then it was time to grill the hamburgers on the grill as the sun was setting and we were wondering where the time had gone. Hopefully I’ll have those light bars installed and running in the next day or so and Kathy will have completed her research so we can enjoy the wonderful weather like we had today. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


What did the dragon say when he saw Sir George coming?

"Oh no, not more canned food!"
