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.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Other than an hour that I couldn’t sleep the rest of the night I slept soundly and didn’t wake again until Kathy got out of bed at 8:30. Surprisingly the sun was shining this morning but when we opened the rest of the windows we knew it wasn’t going to be a hot day. Turning the Weather Channel on while we had coffee and toast for breakfast verified that we had temperatures in the low 40’s overnight and our high would just break the mid 50’s. We adjusted the window openings to just a crack. 

At the computers we read our E-mails and the morning Blogs we follow. Kathy has been patching and sanding holes in the office wall where she’d had me install and then recently remove some shelves. While I was working on changing the function equations on one of my working spreadsheets she painted over those spots masking them from sight. 

We had just sat down for lunch when the phone rang. Our daughter Karen wanted to know if she could borrow her mother’s expertise at organizing for around 2:00 this afternoon. Since we had only planned to go for a ride and some store walking it was no problem. Being RVers we try to keep our plans flexible and most times can change them. 

When we arrived she was cleaning the garage and loading bottles that needed to be recycled for cash. It was not hard work for us and we felt we were there mostly for encouragement and coaching her at keeping like with like when organizing. There were a number of outdated documents that we would later bring home to run through our shredder as well as sorting things to be given to charities and what was to be kept. A lot of the clutter was cardboard boxes that were only partially filled and things that were purchased and left in bags. Once that was sorted through and useless STUFF was gone there was plenty of space to better organize what was being kept. The change was amazing. 

Since everything seemed to be under control and we had already had our Sunday visit we decided to leave around 4:00 even though we were invited to stay for supper around 6:00 but we didn’t go straight home. Kathy said she was hungry now and didn’t feel like cooking for a change and we haven’t been to the Michigan Dinner in a while so that’s where we went. We both enjoyed their Barbecued Spare Rib meal off the Senior’s menu. It’s a slightly smaller sized meal even though we both walked out filled and it was also 30% cheaper. 

By the time we got home there was another major change. When we left Karen’s it was Summer but at 4:44 this afternoon it officially change to Autumn. Does this mean I’ll have to put my sandals and shorts away? Back at the apartment our son Ken called to talk to Kathy for some advice as most kids do. We watched the 6 o’clock News before relaxing for the remainder of the evening and spending some time on the computers. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.          


You Might Be a Redneck If

The judge begins your trial with "welcome back."


  1. Nice that you were able to help your daughter organize things. No, don't put the t-shirts and shorts away just yet.

  2. More sandal weather to come yet. Don't give up hope!!
