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.

Making Progress On A Yucko Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We both slept later than usual this morning but for a few good reasons. First we didn’t have anything special planned and second when we opened the curtains there was no sun shining through the sleet that was falling. As Kathy would later describe it as being a “Yucko Day.” 
This wet slush is what fell this morning.
After breakfast and our morning reading we still found things that we’ll probably need in the trailer later this summer and other things probably longer. We only kept things that we knew there was a greater chance we’d be using at the first sign of spring. Kathy made certain the bins were labelled so there was no mistaking the contents. 
The ditch between the road and the fence was full.
After the lunch dishes were washed and put away I dressed wearing rain gear and only loaded plastic containers on the utility cart to bring down to the truck. I didn’t take long getting them inside but I still had to clean the morning accumulation of slush from the truck’s windshield. I didn’t stay out longer than necessary but was pretty well soaked from the waist down and in bad need of a change of clothes in that short a time. 
The gravel is covered with water not snow.
It was closer to 4:00 when we drove over to Guardian Storage. All the outdoor storage areas such as where our trailer is parked were totally flooded. The only thing visible was water everywhere you looked. At our Climate Controlled Storage Unit Kathy manned the door to keep the heat in while I unloaded the plastic storage containers from the truck. Once they were all inside I needed to tip them on their sides to drain the water from their lids. 
Water all around our trailer.
We stopped at McDonalds where we both had chicken wraps for supper before making our way out to Amherstburg. Because this is Wednesday we were on our way to our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa’s for our weekly visit. We had our usual fun filled visit talking about a number of different things.

On our return trip the intensity of the rain made it hard to see the lines on the road. I simply turned on both sets of Fog Lamps on the truck and the problem went away. As a fact other vehicles started following us like we were the Pied Piper leading everyone through the rain. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

You needed more than one shopping cart at the thrift store.
