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.

Tying Up Loose Ends.


Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Even after having an Enjoyable close to our day yesterday helping Kevin and Melissa to celebrate their 20th Wedding Anniversary we still seemed to be in a state of loss over Ross’s passing this morning. It felt like history repeating itself as we have both walked in Kathie’s shoes in the past. The loss of a friend as dear as they are will never be as great as the loss of a spouse that you have shared your dreams with for so many years. Looking at the comments from the blog this morning we can only say Thank You and we will pass those condolences on to the family.
We chose to stay close to Home in an attempt to finish the small little chores that we have had to set aside in order to accomplish our larger challenges. One of those chores included calling two of our friends who knew about our Fulltiming but held back until we got settled in.
We worked together to make lunch, Kathy pulling out the ingredients while I was busy finely chopping the vegetables and meat that would become Chicken Salad.

Once the dishes were washed and put away I recounted our medications and vitamins that we have on hand. Since being shortchanged by the Pharmacy one time I now count every container we get and then log it on the computer as a way of keeping track.

When I finally got to opening the shop manual that we purchased for the truck yesterday I was very disappointed. I’d hoped that it would give me the information needed to repair the rear window. Instead it showed how to mechanically fix the engine, transmission, brakes, lights and simple body repair but not the rear window. It did give the wiring diagrams for everything in the truck including the rear window but not how to mechanically repair it.

In an attempt to move ahead with this issue I spent almost two more hours online looking for a complete replacement with no luck. Visiting sites such as Ford, E-Bay, Amazon, a number of after-market shops as well as a couple of recycling sites all with no luck.
For supper while I was outside grilling a couple of pork chops Kathy was busy inside making a nice southwest flavoured salad, sautéing some mushrooms and making a Blackberry Yogurt dessert.

Sitting on the patio after watching the News our neighbours Rick and Charlotte came over for a short chat. We shared some travel plans for when we head south this coming fall as did they but their way of doing things just didn’t appeal to us. Like the saying goes everyone has a different way of doing things.
Tomorrow we’ll try enjoying our new lifestyle more thoroughly. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Thats right everyone has their own way, some people like to settle in one spot, we like to move around all the time, and take each day as it comes. No particular plans, other than to enjoy everyday.
