Sleep, Chores and I Got Caught.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Last night both Kathy and I had a cup of the Celestial Sleepy-time Tea about a half hour before going to bed but we should have done it earlier. Due to the fact that we’d also had a heavier meal than we’ve been becoming used to we still had a problem getting to sleep. However when we did fall asleep a bomb could have gone off next to the building and we wouldn’t have heard it. 
Let's travel back to Daytona beach today.
I had mentioned in last night’s post that I would probably be heading to the trailer to give it a good washing. Well that didn’t happen as there were other pressing chores calling my name. I needed to install the new license sticker on the truck’s front plate. However I used clear plate covers to protect the plates as well as keeping them bug-free. When I went to remove the front one to install the sticker it had been shattered probably from a rock. I knew that I had slipped on the rear bumper and cracked the rear one as well so I needed to replace them. I looked at the car and decided to add covers on it as well. 

I discussed going to Canadian Tire to get replacement covers with Kathy in case she needed anything. She chose to take a break from her gift wrapping so she could come with me. We had to match a color to co-ordinate another gift. We went to Walmart first so we could match the gift color. While Kathy was comparing different things I walked over to the automotive section and found four license plate covers that said Made in Canada so I didn’t need to go to Canadian Tire. Kathy also stopped in the grocery section to get extra salad fixings to help us get back on our reduction schedule. 

Back at the apartment Kathy dug back in to getting as much of her wrapping completed as possible. I went back to mounting the plate covers only to find that I’d need to notch the edges where the factory mounting bracket attached to the plate. Attempting to do that with a utility knife proved futile. The plastic used in these covers just would not whittle away.

After I grilled some Chicken Kabobs to go with the Sautéed Spinach and Salad that Kathy made for supper we watched the news while having supper. We headed back to the storage yard to put some things in the trailer and to get my rotary tool to fix the covers. While we were there the sky got really dark and the sound of distant thunder was heard but we only had to use the wipers for a few minutes. We made another stop at the Dollar Store to pick up more wrapping aids. 
Even Surfers.
A comment from Karen about last night’s pictures. She knew we were home but the pictures looked like Key West and she was right. Most bloggers that take pictures don’t post them all. They also don’t have a camera everywhere they go or the subject matter isn’t that interesting. Now you use the unused pictures and when you look back at the blog it makes you feel like you are there. That is what many readers do. They travel in their mind’s eye by looking at the pictures we post. Besides if we hadn’t had to return to do our tax returns we might still be there.    

Kathy and I would like to wish all the Mothers and families reading this blog a Happy Mother’s Day. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
