It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Reorganized and Updated.

Our Location today is Old Town, Florida, U.S.A.

I must have started to catch up on my rest because even though I watched the late local news last night I still managed to wake up before 7:30 this morning. After getting things ready for breakfast I even managed to get caught up on reading half the blogs we follow before Kathy woke up just after 8:15. The one thing we didn’t do was turn on the Weather Channel to see what kind of weather the rest of the country was experiencing because all we had to do was read the RV blog posts and everyone was telling you what they were getting. 

By 10:00 this morning we had all the windows in the trailer wide open and we were busy reorganizing clothes that had been put away during colder temperatures back home. We also had food stocks that we had purchased since arriving in the southern states to organize in the pantry instead of just putting it where there was an empty space. When we arrived here at Yellow Jacket RV Park yesterday we were told that there was no New Year’s pot luck dinner planned like last year. Since we had picked up chicken for our contribution to that meal we also had to cut it into portions and get it into the freezer to use later. 

After having lunch and gathering the excess packaging from the food stocks we took our first walk around the park enjoying the 79 F (26 C) temperatures. Once we’d disposed of the trash we sat on one of the many benches on the floating docks that line the Suwanee River for a half hour enjoying the view, the light breeze and the sounds of nature. Knowing there was more to get done at the trailer we started walking back but got sidetracked when we stopped to check out the water temperature at the heated pool. It was nearly 3:00 by the time we got back to the trailer so while Kathy took things from the freezer to defrost I busied myself setting up our Weber Q so that I could grill up supper later. 

The few days that we were busy traveling to get here by the time I’d put together our blog at night I was too tired to add the pictures. This past year Yellow Jacket RV Park has greatly improved their WiFi connection so I spent the remainder of the afternoon adding the appropriate pictures to those posts. I actually was working on that while we sat outside and I was slow grilling Sweet Potatoes, a can of Sauerkraut and some pork sausages for our supper. 

Just as we finished eating our meal inside we started hearing something tapping on the roof of the trailer. It didn’t take long to realize that the slight chance of showers had turned into a surefire rain storm. Now we can really say that we’re back in Florida. Tomorrow we’ll be busy exploring the area. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

You strip naked to the waist to eat barbecue.
