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, Canada.

After having a mostly restful night I still managed to sleep in but as soon as I got out of bed Kathy was right behind me. It wasn’t long that we were both checking what kind of weather we were going to have for the next few days. Today under sunny skies but a Humidex that would climb above the century mark this afternoon if I was to accomplish what I wanted at the trailer I’d have to head over there as early as possible this morning. 

With Kathy’s heart condition breathing in that kind of heat for an extended period of time would be nearly impossible so she stayed back at the apartment with research and online banking to keep her busy.

At the trailer my idea was to remove all the storage boxes that I had in the basement and front storage box. I even emptied out the storage racks that I mounted on the bulkhead in order to keep the smaller items off the floor. I amazed myself how much stuff was being brought back to the apartment but had to do it so that it could be better organized. 

I made a couple of stops on the return trip to the apartment. Stopping at the drug store for vitamins that they no longer carry and then at the post office to recover a parcel that had been shipped to me.

In the apartment parking lot I used a grocery shopping cart to haul everything from the trailer up to the apartment. Kathy had already spread a plastic tarp and was holding the door open when I came with the first load. I did manage a second load before I had to stop because the heat was getting too much for myself. Kathy quickly made up lunch so that I could cool down and get reenergized. 

After getting the last load in the apartment I started sorting things but soon ran into a roadblock. Not everything that I’d brought in was in clear containers. Some were loose, in bags and cardboard boxes and some were in clear plastic bins that were too small for what was needed. Some of these things will end up in the recycle, be given away or even tossed in the trash rather than going back to the trailer. I needed to put like with like and be ruthless. 

Kathy and I headed over to Walmart and managed to find a couple larger clear containers that I needed but it wasn’t enough. We also found some accessories for the bathroom and a birthday gift. Kathy grudgingly waited for me inside until I had the truck loaded and drove near the door to pick her up. We made a few more stops in search of the containers that I needed with no luck but we did manage to scratch another Christmas Gift off our list with only another 156 shopping days left
Since we were in the neighborhood we dropped in to see our daughter Karen who had forgotten about our visit last night. Greg was home from work and busy grilling supper on the barbecue. We talked with Tyler and played with Sanford for a few minutes before we headed back home. 

At the apartment I split an Acorn Squash and cleaned it out for Kathy who seasoned and cooked it while I grilled a couple of hamburgers on the Weber. After supper I managed to repackage three containers with a pile more to go.    

Tomorrow we have other things to do but I’ll keep picking away at that pile until it’s all reorganized and back in the trailer. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
