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.

Solving Some Problems While Faced With Others.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

When I awoke this morning I felt slightly under the weather even after sleeping well last night. Kathy also had a rough night and felt all congested when she got up. Sitting at the computer catching up on our morning reading I noticed the start of a headache that I just couldn’t seem to shake. I had hoped to finish connecting the solar panels on the trailer today but the headache seemed to be affecting my balance so that idea was scratched.

As mentioned in a previous post the solar panels don’t have enough output to support our needs in the trailer and there are plans to add more panels in time. These panels were purchased with the intention of adding them to our trailer we had before the purchase of our 2011 Avalanche. The price we paid for them when we purchased them you can buy over four hundred watts of solar panels in today’s market. The first couple of times we wintered in Florida we purchased two AGM batteries in an effort of building up our battery bank and yes we declared them on our return to Canada. We called it working on a budget but once we become Fulltimers our budget will be less restrictive.

Since I wasn’t working outside I spent the rest of the day working on our computer/blog/Facebook issues. The problem with the Bad Request 400 Error continues to plague our blog by not allowing us to upload any pictures. Kathy was having a few simple document issues but the worst part had to do with her Facebook page where thousands of Spam messages were being sent to her Gmail account from people she doesn’t know that were all commenting about somebody’s picture. We could only set it up as Spam and clean up her mailbox but Kathy finally had to notify Facebook of the Spam problem. As of this writing Facebook seems to have taken care of the problem and she is only receiving legitimate E-mails.

Hopefully we’ll both feel better tomorrow and get more of our chores completed. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
