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.

Getting Stressed but Getting There.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It must be Spring! We woke up to the sun peaking around the curtains again this morning and we didn’t mind one bit. Watching the Weather Network while eating our breakfast made us happy to be inside because even with the sun out the temperature was only at the freezing mark.
We had plans to continue to get things finished inside so after Kathy had finished her morning reading she returned to finish the light darkening curtains we’d started yesterday. The only thing I help her with on those was for pinning their lengths and tying the ends of the seams.
When it got closer to lunch Kathy took out the ingredients from the fridge and went back to finish the last of the small curtains while I started chopping everything nice and fine. By the time I’d finished chopping things for lunch Kathy had finished the curtains and returned to mix the ingredients for lunch while I continued chopping the vegetables for the Homemade Chicken Vegetable Soup. Lunch was tasty and filling and gave us a break from our projects.
We’ve had family question why we didn’t just buy the drapes we are making. The reason is RV windows are a different size than anything readymade. Since Kathy has arthritis in her hands and hasn’t done a project like this in over thirty years, it is taking longer than it would take most but we are also Retired and don’t have to rush. We also decided yesterday to make tiebacks that would match the curtains so after lunch we were busy cutting the material for the larger curtains.
I finally got the soup simmering on the stove and cleaned up the dishes while Kathy started the first set of tiebacks. By the time the soup was ready to rest I was able to start helping once again tying off the seams. They actually look like they were store bought so we are happy with the results. Trying to engineer how to create these caused a lot of stress and by supper time Kathy was packing it in for the day.
The Homemade Chicken Vegetable Soup was delicious and there is another serving for tomorrow. There are a couple of things you might find us working on tomorrow but it will all be towards getting closer to our Fulltiming Adventure which will begin in less than two and a half weeks. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

The first thing you ever said to your wife was, "Are them real?"


  1. We are lucky we don't need room darkening, go to bed after dark and wake up before sunrise.

  2. Kathy is so lucky to have the gift of sewing. My mom was a great seamstress. I, on the other hand, am lucky to sew a button back on.
    Don't will all work out just fine.

  3. It is fun fixing up your RV and giving it that personal feel. Sherri loves to redecorate now and again to make a change is good for living in small places.
