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.

Unbearable Heat.


Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

Even though we both went to bed at the same time last night Kathy couldn’t remember doing so because she was asleep the moment her head touched the pillow. We both slept late this morning thus waking up totally refreshed. Even after the heavy rain we had last evening as soon as we’d eaten breakfast I was outside watering the plants and grass. The Humidex at that time was only 95 F (35 C) at 9:00 in the morning. 
We made a few phone calls as well as getting our usual reading finished before lunch. Last week when we were busy getting ready for Ross’s Memorial and to leave on our vacation we somehow missed our haircutting appointment. It seems we had not written it on the calendar we hang on the wall so it wasn’t until we looked at our Day-Planner that we noticed the mistake. 
Chicken and tomato sandwich with Blackberries and yogurt for dessert.
The past few days as well as a few more to come have had and will have Humidex readings above the Century Mark and it finally got to be too much. Not for Kathy and I because we simply stay inside the Air Conditioning in the trailer. It was the trailer that was having the problem with the heat. Our Humidex readings during the dark of the night have not dropped below 90 F (32 C) so it got to be too much for our waste tanks. Even though there was very little waste in them the heat was drying out the tanks and causing them to smell up the inside of the trailer each time a toilet was flushed. After emptying all the tanks again this afternoon, I also had to flush both the black tanks using the internal flush system. As soon as Kathy saw me coming back inside the trailer she was busy adding deodorizers in those two tanks. The trailer is now smelling much fresher. 

For supper while Kathy sautéed some Onions,Carrots and Scalloped Potatoes inside the trailer I was grilling some Spare Ribs on the Weber Q outside. With the Humidex being 115 F (46 C) at the time it didn’t take long for our meal to be ready. As usual it all tasted great. 
You could tell it was Friday as the weekend trailers and working seasonal RVers were pulling in all day. The high Humidex for this area will not start cooling down until nearly next weekend. Hope they can handle it as even Environment Canada has issued heat warnings for our region. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

  1. The heat shouldn't give you a smell from your tanks.

  2. Humidex? Is that the heat index? I can't believe it's hotter up there than Florida.
