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.

More Adjustments, But Finally Some Pictures.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

We are truly Home and our sleeping soundly proves that statement. We have both been sleeping like a couple of rocks and sleeping later to boot. Again I’d finished my morning reading by the time that Kathy woke up this morning. Our schedule for the day included final cleaning and putting tools used to do what was needed back where they belong. 
Light sandwich with Macaroni salad and Cantaloupe for dessert.
I continued getting the last of the electronic conveniences up and running while Kathy was busy going through the owner’s packet that we got from Leisure Trailer. She was busy filling out warranty cards for all the appliances inside the trailer that she felt was necessary. Once Kathy was satisfied she had everything completed she started making lunch keeping it light. 
A cooler windier day.
As mentioned in yesterday’s blog I was busy mounting things to the walls using double-sided tape and Velcro. Once we’d finished eating lunch today there were more things that got the Velcro treatment which holds things from bouncing around as the trailer is being towed down the road and being that we are towing our Home there are some things that you prefer to leave out. 
Level/Flag-Holder bracket mounted on the pinbox.
With everything in its place my next chore was to put away my tools while Kathy busied herself dusting and shining windows, mirrors, television screens and countertops from fingerprints had left their telltale smears. I even had time enough to fasten our Level/Flag-Holder bracket in place on our pinbox. 
End cupboard and small counter in kitchen.
Double door fridge and freezer. Aa appliance garage next to the stove.
Microwave/Convection/Exhaust hood over Oven/Stove.
It was at that point that I thought about checking how much rain we got with last night’s rain storm. When I checked the rain gauge I was surprised that we had received an inch and three quarters (1-3/4”) of rain and there was a possibility that some of that had evaporated due to my checking it so late in the afternoon. I showed our neighbours Larry and Nicole as well as Kathy just so they wouldn’t say I was bluffing. That is an unusually high amount of rain for this area but the farmers can really use it. 
Entertainment Center above electric Fireplace/Heater.
Kathy working on her laptop sitting in one of the recliners.
Going back inside the trailer I shocked Kathy who was working on her computer when I started taking pictures of the interior. Many of our readers had asked for pictures so now that things are better organized it was only right to give you a tour of our new Home
We kept our bedcover we'd bought while in the Avalanche.
Our mascot Cleo on the pillows.
The clock and phone base are Velcroed to the countertop.
Looking towards the linen closet in the bathroom.
The key rack is screwed into side of the linen closet.
For supper Kathy again kept our meal light because we were expecting company. Our daughter Karen and son-in-law Greg came to see our new trailer as well as dropping off our grandson Tyler who helped us with the move into our new Home. Tyler is spending the night and then tomorrow he has a 2:00 “Tee Time” to play golf. Even though he has golfed for a couple of years he is not old enough to drive the carts here so I’ll be tagging along as a non-golfing chauffer. 
Supper was macaroni and cheese and an Asian salad.
We’ll be taking a few days off from the organizing to have a rest and to take care of other things that might come up. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.


Ask a silly question 

Do you need a silencer if you are going to shoot a mime?


  1. beautiful! I am so jealous of your refrigerator! We had one in our Motorhome. We have a regular one in our 5th wheel. I don't like it. You bought a beauty! Good luck.

  2. Boy, that looks like a luxurious 5th wheel! So glad the transition went smoothly for you.

  3. Your new home is beautiful, I know you will enjoy it very much.

  4. Your new home looks great. Is your flag holder something that you made or did you purchase it somewhere. I am looking for something like that for our pin box.

  5. Wow, you have traded in your Avalanche! Congratulations on the new one! It is beautiful! Enjoy!!

  6. Beautiful new home... I know you will enjoy it and you're travels coming up!

  7. Your new home is beautiful. Love that brick fireplace and spacious kitchen.

  8. Well the photos were worth waiting for. It's beautiful. Congratulations.

  9. It is a beautiful 5th wheel guys! I'm sure you will love even the smallest upgrades from your Avalanche.

  10. Your new home is BEAUTIFUL! It's so roomy. Love the counter space. It's bigger than the first stick and brick home we had! Is the fireplace the furnace or is it for extra comfort and pleasure on cold evenings? Again, lots of luck in your new home. Couldn't be prettier. I love the bedspread, by the way.
