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.

Baking Again and Another One Down.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After sleeping with the windows just slightly ajar last night Kathy woke up feeling somewhat more like herself this morning. We simplified breakfast by finishing the last of the homemade muffins that Kathy had baked yesterday with coffee. Once we’d watched the Weather Channel and saw that it would be a clear day with a high temperature of only 65 F (17 C) we went to do our morning reading on the computers. 

Kathy was once again in the mood to do more baking and cooking so she played in the kitchen by first checking the fridge for anything that could be close to spoiling. Once the food is cooked it will last longer in the fridge but normally that doesn’t happen because we’ll eat it first. 

I went back to cleaning and rewiring the lights that are mounted on the mudflaps for the truck. During the mounting process this time I used an excessive amount of Silicon Sealer to be certain no moisture would find its way into the lamps again. I was in the process of reattaching the backing plate to the first mudflap when Kathy noticed the time was nearly 1:30 and we hadn’t had lunch yet. Even though she was still baking she quickly made us each a nice Ham sandwich that would tide us over until supper. 

After lunch Kathy returned to finish her baking while I returned to assembling the mudflaps on the tarp in the living room. As soon as I had completed the first one I ran it out to the truck giving me more open space to work in and to take the odor of the silicon out of the apartment. Even with all the windows and balcony door wide open the odor was extremely strong. As I was about to bring the second mudflap out to the truck Kathy suggested having supper first because of our two previously light meals and it was already past 4:00. 

For Supper she had made a wonderful Quiche and a Peach Cobbler that just melted in your mouth. As soon as I was done eating I headed out to the truck to install and reconnect the wiring on the mudflaps. Upon testing the lights I found a faulty bulb that needed replacing. That scratches another item off my To-Do list of things needing to be done before we leave for Florida in 103 days. 

Having just jammed myself in the rear wheel tubs and laying on the ground to remount the mudflaps there was no argument that I was badly in need of a shower. I got that finished just on time to watch the 6 o’clock News. 

Right after the news was done we headed over to our daughter Karen’s for our Sunday night visit. When we arrived Tyler was out front practicing his hockey. When I asked if his homework was finished he hastily went inside to do it. Karen was outside burning fallen branches from this week’s storm in the firepit that I built for them a few years back. While talking at the dining room table she told us she had been in a cooking and baking mood the last couple of days as well. It must run in the family. 

Tomorrow I’ll finish cleaning the living room out and move on to something else on my To-Do list. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

The highlight of the family reunion was the alien abduction update.


  1. Bet you're glad to have the mud flap repair behind you, even if it did require a shower! ;c)

  2. Nice to get those this on the list checked off.
