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.

Catching our Breathes.

Our Location today is Savannah, Georgia.

We slept with the windows open again last night as the low temperature was predicted to be around 63F (17C) without any chance of rain. Unfortunately for the second night in a row Kathy could not shut down her train of thought so she spent the majority of the night staring at the ceiling. I forced myself to stay in bed until 7:30 but once I was up it was only minutes later that Kathy was awake as well.
French Toast for Breakfast.
After a breakfast of French Toast we talked of different stops we could make while on our trip back to home. With a second cup of coffee we checked our E-mails and went directly to Mapquest for a change of course. Between Kathy finding the park addresses and me printing out the routes we were able to finish planning outings and stops that we would make along the way with only one five hour day on the road.
For the last two days it has been very difficult working at the computers here because of all the waterfowl just outside our rear window. It is like we have been deprived of this kind of peacefulness for so long that it is hard for us to take our eyes away for even the slightest moment. At times it can get fairly noisy out there as well but Kathy still wishes there was some way we could bring this small lake and its habitants home with us.
At one point I  counted Thirty turtles on branches around the pond.
Today different birds seemed to be joining the group as well as a whole bunch of turtles that were sunning themselves on branches in the water. It was comical watching one poor turtle who kept climbing this particular branch only to fall back into the water when he would get to the same spot each time. He tried and tried again over and over.  I guess we could all learn a lesson from this turtle.
Home made French Onion Soup for Lunch.
When we had managed to complete our task of planning our trip home we realized that it was nearly 1:00 so it was time for a bowl of home made French Onion Soup. (Do you notice a French Theme developing here?)
Once lunch was finished I needed to drain the grey water tank and Kathy needed to take a nap. Her lack of sleep and problems with allergies was too much for her to not let her body have a rest. When I returned inside I sat down to write a short note to Curt of Il Camper and mistakenly wrote him a book. I just hope the information I shared with him will be useful.
Pork Chops and Apple Sauce with acorn squash and Spanish Rice.
Finally I got caught up on reading the blogs we follow before it was time to start barbecuing a couple of pork chops on our new Weber Grill while Kathy prepped the side dishes. We had a wonderful meal of pork chops with apple sauce, acorn squash and Spanish Rice. Oh well that blew the French theme but it sure tasted great anyway.
After dishes and taking out the trash we watched the Weather Channel to keep track of a severe storm that could be heading our way. Back in Ontario Al and Kelly from Travel With the BayfieldBunch and George and Suzie from Our Awesome Travels have just returned in the last few days and could be getting hit with another winter storm.
Now we’ll just have to put up with nature’s sounds for yet another night but I guess someone has to do it right. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Enjoy that nice weather while you can, its still cold here.

  2. Rick, thank you for mentioning me in your post today. I did find the information very helpful(you probably already read my email reply). I always learn so much from fulltimers like you and your wife. Looking forward to being busy the way you are instead of work. I could use some information on how you research and find all these great places to stop at and explore. Thanks again. Love your meal photos too. :-) Curt
