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.

Beating The Storm.


Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

We managed to sleep soundly with the windows open last night but by 8:00 this morning it was already feeling like it was 84 F (29 C) outside. As soon as we’d finished eating breakfast the Air Conditioner was turned on and the windows were closed. Depending on whether you looked to the internet or at The Weather Network on the television they both indicated afternoon rain showers but at different times. 

Not wasting any time instead of doing my morning reading I headed outside to water the new grass seed that I’ve applied to our site. We’ve had the promise of rain in the past that didn’t materialize so there was no taking chances. That resulted in a usage of a least fifteen minutes before I climbed to the roof of the trailer to reinstall the Max-Air roof vents. With the A.C. running all the vents were in the closed position which made the job of refastening the brackets to the vents that much easier. The white roof looked so nice not having any discolouration from age spots nor the noticeable trail left by the water discharge from the Air Conditioner. 

I’d spent less than an hour on the roof which included using fresh Dicor self-leveling sealer over the screws but my bottle of water was already empty. There had been a steady breeze that had been blowing which helped to make the heat feel less oppressive. When Kathy came out for a short visit but only stayed about ten minutes due to her medical issues. A quick check of The Weather Network showed a Humidex of 106 F (41 C) at that time. 

The sky remained overcast the entire day but just before we sat down for supper the skies opened up with a downpour that definitely helped the area farmers and their crops. It was a good thing the vent covers had been replaced because the rain would have damaged the vents themselves. Tomorrow the temperatures will once again feel above the Century Mark but we are sure we’ll find plenty to keep us busy. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

I wish the buck stopped here. 

I could sure use a few.
