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.

Fast Start to a Hot Day and Success.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We managed to keep ourselves awake until after the evening news last night but we probably fell asleep as soon as our heads hit our pillows. I don’t even recall waking up any time before 7:15 this morning when my back told me it was time to rise. 
Remounting the Breadbox
Not wanting to wake Kathy I sat in the living room reassembling the hardware on the doors and breadbox that we had to restain for the trailer. I was in the process of finishing the last piece on the breadbox when Kathy appeared in the room. Seeing what I was doing, she automatically started getting breakfast ready.
Reattaching the drawer face under the oven.
As soon as we were finished eating Kathy went to check on the morning blog posts and her E-mail while I started loading the truck. It felt good to pick up the tarp we use when I have one of these projects in the drying stages. It finally looked like home again. 
No more green tarp covering the rug and furniture.
By 9:00 we were on our way to the trailer at the storage yard. The reason for such an early start was that the Weather Channel’s forecast for today include a Humidex that would reach the century mark along with possible thunderstorms. By getting it all installed during the cool part of the morning helped to keep us from looking like a couple of very wet Rag Dolls. 

The first place we went to after the trailer was the specialty shop that had been closed when we arrived yesterday afternoon. We looked around the shop before finally talking to the proprietor. We explained what we were looking for and why. He went online trying to find something locally for us with no luck. That’s when he suggested that we try an online site meant for collectors. We made another stop before arriving home.   
Replacing the CPAP compartment doors.
The first thing we did at home was to have lunch. Then Kathy started wrapping more of the Christmas Gifts we had purchased over the last few days. My job was back to the computer to continue looking for that special gift. After striking out on the site that we were told to visit this morning I decided to go back to E-Bay. I had searched that site repeatedly over the last few days without any luck other than the ones that were priced through the roof. Would you believe there were three new listings just today at reasonable prices on the Buy Now listing page. With Kathy by my side we reviewed each one before making our choice. We can now say with only 117 shopping days until Christmas we have officially bought our last gift for this year. We just have to wait for the last gift to arrive from New York City.  
My best side while replacing the last CPAP compartment door.
Kathy needed some wrapping supplies so we headed over to the dollar store before going over to the Michigan Diner for supper tonight. Back at the apartment Kathy finished wrapping the rest of the gifts on hand. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
