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.

Making Improvements and Progress.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It felt great waking up to the sun peeking around the edges of the bedroom drapery but the brightness was not reflective of the outside temperatures. We had warmer temperatures in the middle of February and now that it is spring the forecasters are expecting flurries for this first weekend of April.
I’d barely started getting things ready for breakfast when Kathy joined me in the kitchen. We’d already planned our morning so that after getting dressed, staging the bed, having lunch, washing the dishes we’d be out the door before 1:00 this afternoon. That was the time the building management along with the local fire department had started running regularly scheduled monthly Fire Drills and when the alarm goes off it doesn’t shut until it is verified that it has been heard everywhere throughout the building.
Yesterday while we were at Walmart as we were walking around we noticed that they carried a special kind of seat cover that we have become accustomed to and at a fraction of the price that most hardware stores sell them for. Our first stop was at Guardian Storage where after checking for our mail we went to the trailer. After opening the slides Kathy busied herself removing the original Bedcover and Shams that came with the trailer. They’ll be cleaned and stored until such time we come off the road and trade our trailer for a smaller unit. I retrieved the last of the storage containers we didn’t get because it was a miserable day and we didn’t open the slides. I also managed to get the necessary measurements as to the seat sizing.
I dropped Kathy at the door at Walmart and by the time I’d parked and joined her in the hardware section she’d managed to get the last two covers available. Before leaving we also picked up two more of the large clear plastic storage bins to store the pillows and bedcover that have been removed from the trailer.
From there we headed to the Devonshire Mall to walk around because there were two more tenant showings of our apartment this afternoon. We took our time looking around for more early holiday gift ideas. We are lucky in a sense that our youngest grandchild turns nine this year and is not really into toys in the traditional sense. Also since we’ll be celebrating two Canadian Holidays together with our families we get to look at it from a different perspective. With that in mind we walked throughout the mall trying to make a few purchases only to find out that they were out of stock. We were finally starting to make some progress just as our legs and hips were giving us telltale signs that we are no longer used to prolonged walks on hard surfaces. Since we had to walk through the food court to get back to the car we had Chinese food for supper. That also gave us someplace to sit and recuperate from all the walking.
Back at the apartment building I packed everything into the clear plastic storage containers which made it very easy for me to carry up the stairs. Hopefully tomorrow we’ll get more things moved in an effort of reaching our goal of Fulltiming. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. If you haven't tried the vacuum bags for storage, give them a try. You'll love them and use one fourth as many containers.
