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.

Warmer Busy Day.

Our Location today is Crystal River, Florida.

It’s amazing how well you can sleep with just a bit of heat to take the frost off in the middle of the night. Mind you we both put our hoodies on while we had breakfast because there was still a chill in the air due to the outside temperatures only being 41 F (5 C) at the time. With breakfast done we did just as we would at home reading E-mails and Blogs until it was time to get caught up on our chores. 

After sorting all the laundry we had collected since leaving home I loaded it in the truck between the rain showers we were experiencing. Next I walked down to see how busy the laundry rooms were. It was busy but in that short time there I was also reminded that the sizes of the machines were smaller than most home sized units.

The Red Cross Blood Donor bus was parked by the clubhouse so I inquired the location of the nearest Donor Center was because I do plan on donating while we’re away this year but I still have time before my next allowed visit which is eight weeks between donations. 

When I told Kathy of the laundry room and small machines she simply went online and found the address to the nearest Laundromat which was just five miles away. We then prepared lunch together so we could head out without the worries of having to eat out two days in a row. It only took minutes to arrive at the Laundromat from the trailer but it was at the same time that the skies opened up to really cause a downpour. 

Luckily we’d worn our raincoats so we were able to get in and I got three washers in one row and the fourth in another. That’s just when it looked like everyone in the county had decided to do their laundry as they started pouring in the door. By the time our clothes were ready for the dryers I had to take three machines apart from one another. Once the clothes were dried and folded it seemed the rain had finally stopped. Strangely there were quite a few trucks with fifth wheel hitches suddenly in their parking lot. 

Back at the trailer we were finally able to open the windows and door as the temperature reached 61 F (16 C). With the clouds continuing to make everything Blah like we decided that I’d grill a nice sausage on the Weber while Kathy cooked a nice side dish of buttered noodles and Spinach for supper. Of course I had to once again wear my raincoat as a light rain started falling. Grilling the sausage low and slow like George is always saying just seemed to make it taste that much better and there is still some to have for breakfast. 

Tomorrow the temps are supposed to be back to normal for this time of year so we are already making plans for a busier but relaxing kind of day. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Good day to get the laundry done!

    Honestly, i hate going to laundromats, so we have a washer/dryer unit in our rig (it came with it) and I love it! i can throw in smaller loads throughout the day while doing other things. If i do a load or two at night before bedtime, often I just hang things on hangers to dry. I suspend the hangers from all the overhead cabinet handles and by morning its all dry!

  2. Yep, low and slow on the Weber Q works great for me.
    In the warm weather we don't wear many clothes so do a lot less laundry, you just need warmer weather.
