It's about time.

Getting Ready.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Without the use of an alarm it seems that waking before 8:00 is becoming a habit and there was no reason what so ever for doing so. I didn’t even make it to the kitchen and I could hear Kathy moving in the bedroom. By the time I had opened the window blinds and started making the coffee for breakfast Kathy was already making toast. Of course the Weather Channel confirmed the pleasant temperatures we’d have to endure so that was hard to take. 

Shortly after sitting down at the computers the phone rang and our daughter Karen was thanking us for bringing our Granddaughter Kylla to work last night because she would not have been home from work on time to bring her personally. She also confirmed that we’ll be celebrating our grandson Tyler’s birthday on Sunday night and inviting us for supper. She asked if we could make a simple cake for the occasion to bring along as well. 

After Kathy got off the phone she immediately went to the kitchen to start baking the cake. I in turn called General RV to book an appointment to get the warranty work looked at. Because the truck was in the body shop for two weeks I waited to make this appointment so I would have to call back for a rescheduling. The service manager was busy so it was simple enough to just leave my number and ten minutes later he called back. So now we’ll be up early and bringing the trailer across the border next Friday. 

After the cakes were cooling we headed to the Bulk Barn to purchase some ingredients we need for decorating this cake and for some baking we’ll be doing for a Halloween party towards the end of October. We found almost everything we needed and Kathy was going to have me drive to another grocery store but I insisted we return to the local Zehr’s because today was the last day to their no Tax shopping. Again we saved at least another $10.00 by getting the few things we bought. 

Back home I was just getting back to the file that I have been working on for future travels for Kathy when she called me for lunch. The leftover pizza from last night hit the spot. After clearing the table we immediately started to level and decorate the cake. We work well as a team and had the cake assemble in ten minutes and while Kathy applied the icing I was busy coloring the icing for the decoration. In less than an hour the cake was finished and we got a chance to sample it. Most people don’t realize to make a cake flat you need to trim it and when making icing you always make more than you need so hence we have a sample without cutting the actual cake. 

I spent another hour and a half completing the file making it ready to print. The download was 135 pages that I compressed to 10 pages then adjusted to a printable version of 24 pages and it only took me four days. With that completed I downloaded another file that only came in at 115 pages. Oh the Joys! Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
