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.

We Did Ask For Warmer Weather.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Once again it was one of those nights where Kathy slept like a log and I spent most of the night awake. I still managed to be up and about before 7:00 with only three hours sleep while Kathy slept past 7:30. We didn’t have anything planned for the day so we simply had breakfast before going to read on the computers.

Shortly after 9:00 I went outside to put many of the tools away in the tool cabinets in the truck that I used in the trailer. I then brought the rest in so that I could work on the new doors for the CPAP storage compartments for the trailer. I couldn’t have been outside any longer than fifteen minutes but with the high Humidex feeling like it was 95 F (35 C) I was already beginning to wear down. Considering my career evolved around high heat this is a revelation that I’m not capable of doing the things I used to. I spent the rest of the morning copying the Tutorials for our Rand McNally GPS for Kathy from E-mailed instructions. 
New drawer not the color it was supposed to be.
Shortly after lunch we went over to our daughter Karen’s for a short visit. She and a friend are taking the kids up to the cottage in the morning and not returning until after we hit the road in a week’s time. We got our puppy fix playing inside the house with Sanford and before we knew it Greg was home from work. 
You can see the red tone in the wood.
Our next stop was the Home Depot store to return the extra fittings that I didn’t use while redoing the drainage to the kitchen sink in the trailer. While there we also visited the Paint Department to ask what we could do to make the stain the color we had purchased. Nan Talley gave us good information last night about a possible fix. I had brought the camera and when I showed the pictures to the associate working there she instantly told us the brand and what the color was but not the color we chose. Kathy and I had chosen the color Gunstock which matched the interior wood trim but what came out was Sedona Red. Even though the brand is a good product apparently we are not the only ones that have gotten a different color that we had bought. She gave us the phone number to call the company on Monday to try and rectify the problem. 
You can see the red not brown tone better from this angle.

We stopped at the Zehr’s grocery store for a few needed supplies before heading home. Once everything was put away we walked next door to the Chinese Restaurant for supper. We didn’t feel like cooking because of the heat and we were celebrating our Thirteenth Wedding Anniversary a couple of days early. It was a nice casual dinner and of course we brought enough leftovers home for another meal.

Tomorrow is supposed to feel much warmer so we’ll see what we get into. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
