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.

Rainy New Year Get-Together.

Our Location today is Old Town, Florida.

With the change of weather it seemed that neither of us could keep our eyes open last night and by 11:30 we simply wished one another a Happy New Year and closed the lights. Kathy slept a lot better last night because we ran the furnace the entire night and she had the sound of raindrops tapping on the roof which always makes her sleep. This morning the temperature outside was a cool 52 F (11 C) but because of the continuing rain the temperature never moved until after the sun set this evening and it surely didn’t rise.
Enjoying our bowls of hot oatmeal this morning and hot coffees we felt slightly warmer but with the constant rain we made it an indoor day. After our morning reading on the computers Kathy started getting caught up on our budget entries and was doing good until she realized she needed another category. That gave her the time to read a book she started just before we left home while I modified the spreadsheet that I had created to make her job easier.
For lunch she made a wonderful Baby Spinach Salad with a small serving of chicken on the side keeping it light but filling. She continued her reading while I set-up additional budget sheets for the next seven years. Once I’d finished explaining the changes to Kathy I played a few games while Kathy decided to take a Snap in an attempt to finally shake whatever was bothering her.
Just before 4:30 we walked over to the park clubhouse where the park hosted a Pot-Luck New Year’s dinner. As usual there was way too much to eat but we played it safe by bringing our divided plates and only going for one helping in an attempt at keeping our weight in check. We met another couple Herald and Jeanette Sluder who were here last January parked next to us back then but now on a premium site by the river. We had a little catching up to do just as if we’d known each other forever. We also met a number of other folks who were work camping as well as a young couple from the Florida area who had just rented an RV and headed of out state for a vacation. 
We were back home by 7:00 as Kathy was again tiring and wanted to rest up as tomorrow we’ll be moving to our next camp. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.        


The World's Great Proverbs

Procrastination is the thief of time.


  1. The divided plate is a good idea. There is always too much temptation at potlucks. Have a wonderful 2014.

  2. Sounds like a busy and fun day! Happy New Year!

  3. Happy New Year to you and Kathy. Looks like a very nice park and beautiful club house.

    Hope you both enjoy good health and good times in 2014!


  4. Enjoy the New Years pot luck and warmer weather than back home.

  5. Hope Kathy feels better soon and kicks that bug.... it hit us twice and we are hopefully over it now for the new year.
