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.

Packed, Fueled and Cleaned.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

I actually slept in until 6:00 this morning but as soon as I was up I made certain to start my workout routine and I even managed to increase my reps. It was nearly 8:30 by the time I packed it in and started getting things ready for breakfast. Kathy had really been tired last night and with the heavy fog that we were experiencing outside this morning it was dark enough in the bedroom that she didn’t flinch until she heard the kettle pop in the kitchen. 
This morning after the fog started lifting.
We watched the Weather Channel again this morning confirming that our plans to go to the trailer and finish packing what was coming with us had to be done this morning. As soon as breakfast was finished and we were dressed we started loading the truck. It was a good thing that I had exercised this morning because I had to hand carry a few of the heavier items down the stairs. 
Taking a load down to the truck.
We were at the trailer by 11:00 and spent the next hour and a half putting everything in its rightful spot. Kathy busied herself putting things away inside while I repacked the basement. I then returned inside to help her along. On the way home we stopped at the gas station where I managed to fill the truck with Diesel at only 1.109 a liter. That is the cheapest it has been in Canada in over three years. That will help us to cross the international border at night and make some mileage without having to worry about finding a fueling station at night. 
This is the best the weather got today.
Back at the apartment just before 1:00 we had a light lunch that helped us to finish eating some of the food that we are not allowed to bring across the border with us. Once lunch was finished I had laundry to do. As I’d already figured there was nobody else downstairs today. While the clothes were drying I went back to catch up on my blog reading. Kathy was once again rearranging what Christmas gifts that are still in our apartment. 

Since we’ll only be eating breakfast at home tomorrow and we’ve been emptying the fridge there is little in it. For supper tonight we went over to A&W to have supper. It’s a good thing we didn’t wait any later because when we walked in the door they locked it behind us. We’d forgotten that on Christmas Eve most businesses close early but since we were in they took our orders and we were satisfied. 

Our area is under a high wind advisory with winds expected to reach between 50 and 60 mph tonight. We are presently listening to the windows rattling so we can only hope things don’t get any worse for tomorrow. 

Kathy and I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hope you all can spend it with your loving families. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
