Computer Accomplishments.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Looking at the time on the clock I was surprised to read that it was nearly 8:00 when I got out of bed this morning. The surprise was because the only thing you could see outside was the rain splashing off the windows coming from very dark rain clouds. By the time I prepped the kitchen to make breakfast and turned on my laptop Kathy was already walking into the dining room. The Weather Network confirmed that we were not hallucinating and we could expect more of the same for the rest of the day. They also showed that the high winds would not only blow but gust enough that our windows would rattle from the force.
We spent most of the day reading, researching and making entrees on a number of things on our laptops today. We also decided to just stay put when Dan the building manager was showing a prospective tenant around and listening to the reaction. They had no sooner left the apartment when Kathy and I both said at the same time “That guy didn’t seem interested at all” because there had been no questions asked.
We’ll manage to get more things accomplished in the next few days even if the weather is more winter-like than it should for this time of year. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Making Progress And Making Sense.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After another great night of sleep we were both up eating breakfast shortly before 8:00 this morning admiring the sunshine that was lighting up the view outside our balcony and melting the heavy frost from the car windows. By shortly after 8:30 we had settled in at the computers getting caught up on what is happening in the RVing community and around the world. The outside temperature simply lingering around the freezing mark so we chose to pack and gather things that we wanted to get out of the apartment.
As soon as the lunch dishes had been washed I took the time to rearrange the back of the truck as well as transferring fuel to the main tank. As I was finishing on the one side of the truck I walked around to the other to do the same but stopped momentarily in my tracks. There was a steady drip of diesel fuel falling to the pavement below the truck. Within seconds I’d closed the flow from the auxiliary tank. Using an old rug I keep in the truck for such purposes I tried unsuccessfully to see where the drip was coming from underneath. Sometime next week when the weather is supposed to improve I’ll be taking care of a problem that nobody needs to have repairing a fuel leak.
Once the backseat of the truck was loaded Kathy and I drove over to Guardian Storage for a number of reasons. The first stop was at the trailer where we dropped off the seat covers we purchased yesterday and to pick up the Extra Pillows that had been left behind the other day. We then drove to the Climate Controlled Storage Unit where we added the Extra Pillows and storage containers to our unit. The last thing we did was to stop by the office to see if any mail had arrived in today’s delivery.
Now it was time to drive across town to the Computers for Kids where we dropped off 2 old laptop computers. Kathy’s had a fried motherboard and mine had a broken hinge and casing. They will first check out the computers, salvage what is reusable, they will wipe out any residual information that might be hidden on the hard drives and then they will recycle everything else keeping all that material out of the landfill. The usable computers and parts are used to put in community centers where underprivileged children can use them to keep up on their school studies.
Since it was past supper time we stopped at McDonalds where we used a coupon to have a very satisfying meal at a discounted price. We did take our time eating just to relax and do some people watching.
Being this was Wednesday evening we drove out to Amherstburg for our weekly visit with our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa. As usual we talked about a wide variety of things such as the kids in school, other family members and friends, to the weather. Our grandson Matthew will be celebrating his Confirmation this weekend and the temperature is supposed to plummet to below seasonal. The weather guessers are once again using the term “Polar Vortex.” Throughout the evening we always had plenty of reasons to smile and laugh.
In answer as to the question left in a recent comment “Why has no one rented our apartment yet?” When Kathy and I rented our apartment years ago our rental fee included parking for our vehicles and our electric. Since the buildings were sold last year the new owners are no longer signing any leases with the tenants so they can try raising our rents more often. The new owners also plan to charge new tenants the cost of electricity and per vehicle parking. This is something that is quite normal in the Toronto area but not in the Essex County area of Ontario. New Prospective Tenants are eager to rent the apartment until they hear about these new charges then they change their minds or say they are still looking around. There is another apartment showing tomorrow afternoon.
With less than 31 days left to our becoming Fulltimers we’ll once again be busy tomorrow getting things ready for our Adventure. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Making Improvements and Progress.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It felt great waking up to the sun peeking around the edges of the bedroom drapery but the brightness was not reflective of the outside temperatures. We had warmer temperatures in the middle of February and now that it is spring the forecasters are expecting flurries for this first weekend of April.
I’d barely started getting things ready for breakfast when Kathy joined me in the kitchen. We’d already planned our morning so that after getting dressed, staging the bed, having lunch, washing the dishes we’d be out the door before 1:00 this afternoon. That was the time the building management along with the local fire department had started running regularly scheduled monthly Fire Drills and when the alarm goes off it doesn’t shut until it is verified that it has been heard everywhere throughout the building.
Yesterday while we were at Walmart as we were walking around we noticed that they carried a special kind of seat cover that we have become accustomed to and at a fraction of the price that most hardware stores sell them for. Our first stop was at Guardian Storage where after checking for our mail we went to the trailer. After opening the slides Kathy busied herself removing the original Bedcover and Shams that came with the trailer. They’ll be cleaned and stored until such time we come off the road and trade our trailer for a smaller unit. I retrieved the last of the storage containers we didn’t get because it was a miserable day and we didn’t open the slides. I also managed to get the necessary measurements as to the seat sizing.
I dropped Kathy at the door at Walmart and by the time I’d parked and joined her in the hardware section she’d managed to get the last two covers available. Before leaving we also picked up two more of the large clear plastic storage bins to store the pillows and bedcover that have been removed from the trailer.
From there we headed to the Devonshire Mall to walk around because there were two more tenant showings of our apartment this afternoon. We took our time looking around for more early holiday gift ideas. We are lucky in a sense that our youngest grandchild turns nine this year and is not really into toys in the traditional sense. Also since we’ll be celebrating two Canadian Holidays together with our families we get to look at it from a different perspective. With that in mind we walked throughout the mall trying to make a few purchases only to find out that they were out of stock. We were finally starting to make some progress just as our legs and hips were giving us telltale signs that we are no longer used to prolonged walks on hard surfaces. Since we had to walk through the food court to get back to the car we had Chinese food for supper. That also gave us someplace to sit and recuperate from all the walking.
Back at the apartment building I packed everything into the clear plastic storage containers which made it very easy for me to carry up the stairs. Hopefully tomorrow we’ll get more things moved in an effort of reaching our goal of Fulltiming. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Overcast Day but Making Progress.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

When we went to bed last night the sound of distant thunder was moving even closer. At one point we could have sworn that it had struck just the other side of the parking lot. With weather like that I slept soundly while Kathy kept one eye open in fear until there were no longer sounds of the storm outside. The strange thing is we both have childhood occurrences to thank for the way we react when there is a Thunderstorm nearby. It was not uncommon for me to help my grandfather on his farm herd in the cattle during thunderstorms wearing knee boots and a three-quarter length raincoat. Later on in life I’d learn of the danger associated with these storms. Kathy’s fear comes from being in an automobile as a child that was struck by lightning. No one was injured but the engine caught on fire.
We had a quiet day mostly in part that the sun was well concealed behind a wall of clouds and we were waiting for the young woman to come pick up the Bathroom Shelving Unit that we sold on Kijiji. We spent most of the day on the computers doing more research. In the afternoon Kathy tended to her online banking and budget spreadsheet entrees. I managed to get some of our pill doucettes filled as well as counting each of the medications we have in stock. I created a spreadsheet that helps to keep track of that on my old laptop but when I transferred the files to the new laptop I had an issue with OneDrive. The issue caused me to delete those files not just from the OneDrive but from my Documents in the same instance. I am slowly rebuilding the spreadsheets that I lost.
After the shelf had been picked up Kathy needed to get out of the apartment. With the lack of sunshine, she was starting to get a touch of Cabin Fever. It was also late enough that we went to Dairy Queen where we each had a chicken wrap combo for our supper. We didn’t rush because we just wanted to be out and about.
Since we hadn’t checked our mail since early last week we drove over to Guardian Storage only to find a single piece of junk mail addressed to us waiting to be picked up. From there we drove over to Walmart with plans to only walk around. We spent nearly an hour getting our exercise in but did end up bringing home a few food stocks that we’d forgotten to get on Saturday.
With the monthly Fire Alarm Testing tomorrow afternoon and another new Tenant Viewing we’ll be making ourselves scarce and maybe we might even visit the trailer to see what we can do in preparation for our Fulltiming Adventure. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Slow Day Of Celebration.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

I must have been more tired than expected because when my head hit the pillow last night the next thing I knew the sun was seeping around the edges of the bedroom curtains. The worst part was that it was already 9:00 in the morning. While I made the morning coffees Kathy busied herself making toast which is a rarity to start the day with carbs. Again we finished our coffees at the computers while we read our E-mail and morning blogs.
It was nice reading of how other bloggers were planning on spending Easter with their families. After finding other things of interest to read we managed to have a light late lunch because we would be going out for supper as well. At that point I removed the bathroom shelving unit in preparation for tomorrow morning as the buyer planned to pick it up shortly after 9:00.  Once that was finished we returned to the computers where Kathy opened a fresh E-mail from the buyer of the shelf saying she had forgotten about an early doctor’s appointment and asked if after 5:00 would be better. She is eight months pregnant but that also means that we’ll be able to get things accomplished in the morning.
At 4:30 we arrived at our daughter Karen’s home for Easter Celebration bringing a nice Carrot Cake that we brought for dessert. Greg was outside grilling the vegetables on the grill while Karen was cutting the spiral sliced Ham from the bone. Tyler was helping to set the table while giving us more inside information from yesterday’s hockey game. Kathy helped make a wonderful Caesar Salad and even though I offered to help they told me to just sit down.
 Minutes later Bob and Ginny arrived so Karen and Greg started putting the dishes on the counter where everyone served themselves. Conversation kept flowing throughout the meal on a number of subjects but especially hockey. As I mentioned yesterday Tyler will be leaving the Bantam division because of his age and moving up to the Midget division in September.
(L to R) Bob, Tyler, Kylla and Ginny.
We had an enjoyable visit but we headed back to the apartment shortly after 8:00 and while Kathy had a small bag of popcorn for a snack I got to eat the leftover Caesar salad that I brought home from supper. The weather guessers were all forecasting severe thunderstorms late this afternoon. Well they were only off by about six hours because by 9:00 we could hear the distant sound of thunder accompanied by a steady falling rain. That will help us to sleep soundly tonight.

Again Kathy and I hope that you and your families had a Happy Easter. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Busy Exciting Day Making Progress.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After all the fresh air we were both exposed to yesterday I was quite surprised when I couldn’t sleep last night. That meant that we had to sleep in later this morning to make up for it. As soon as we finished breakfast Kathy headed to the computer while I immediately started sorting laundry. With this being a long weekend I knew that getting downstairs as early as possible was key to getting this completed in a timely fashion. I was surprised there was nobody downstairs in the laundry room when I arrived. The moment I started the last washer with our clothes people were coming in with piles of clothes to wash. I made certain not to leave the machines unattended and as quick as I emptied the machines people were putting their own clothes in to wash.
Tyler (Black 97) on his way to his first goal.
Kathy had finished vacuuming the apartment by the time I got back upstairs. Between the time I started the dryers and finished folding the dried clothes I managed to get my online reading in. Even though I made certain to be back downstairs before any of our dryers had finished their cycle and by the time I finished folding the clothes I noticed nobody else was there cleaning their clothes. Minutes after walking back in the apartment Kathy was serving a piping hot lunch we both enjoyed.
He found something more interesting than the game to watch.
For the past few years we have not been home at this time of year which meant we didn’t see our grandson Tyler play as much hockey. Last year his team came away winning gold in their league division. This year they were faced with new players coming up from the younger division as well as a rookie goalie with no experience whatsoever. So it was no surprise when they lost out to the gold and silver but they still had a chance for the bronze. With us not going south this year we were at the New Belle River Arena at 4:15 this afternoon to watch Tyler’s team play for the bronze in his division.
The short guy at the front of the line is Keagan the goalie.
His team receiving their bronze medals behind him. 
When the game started it would be scoreless until halfway through the first period when the opposing team scored. In the second period Tyler scored from the corner by deflecting the puck off the goalies stick. Two minutes later Tyler shot the puck between the defenseman’s and goalie’s legs for his second goal. By the end of the third period the score was tied 3 to 3 and because this was their final game for the season there had to be a sudden-death shoot-out. The final score was 5 to 4 with Ethan, Tyler’s best friend and teammate scoring the winning goal for their team. Next year Tyler, Ethan and a few other players from their team will be moving up to the next division.
Our daughter Karen with Ethan who scored the winning goal.
It was nearly 6:00 by the time we left the arena and we had some errands to run. First we stopped at the Dollar Store to pick up a couple of small clear bins to put our toiletries in for the apartment because someone bought the Bathroom Shelf from our online ad. By that time both our heads were starting to spin from hunger so using a coupon we ate supper at Taco Bell. From there we drove to Metro grocery store to get a few things we need to see us through the weekend.

Cold Outdoor Accomplishment.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada. 

When I woke Kathy up minutes before 8:00 she only wanted to roll over and go back to sleep but she knew that we had to be somewhere this morning. After a quick breakfast we were out the door by 8:45 without even looking at the computers. Of all days to have scheduled picking up our load of firewood this turned out to be not the best. The temperature had plummeted overnight and when we left this morning the outside temperature was only 28 F (-2 C) but at least it wasn’t raining. 
When we arrived at Len’s home to get the wood the first thing I did was to finish paying him. He told me he’d collected over an inch and a half (1½”) of rain just yesterday on his rain gauge alone which is unusual for this area at this time of year. Kathy and I had placed a tarp in the backseat of the truck so that she could load the oak chunks from the packing crate next to the truck. Those were pieces that couldn’t be split so they were simply cut off and put in crates but once a fire is going those pieces will last longer and burn hotter. I pulled the wheeled cart over to the back of the truck and would alternate between tossing the maple wood in and then stacking it. It was a good thing I was stacking it in the truck because if I hadn’t it wouldn’t have all fit. 
Once we were on the road it only took twenty-five minutes to get to our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa’s home where we had just set up the wood racks by the garage on Wednesday for this very purpose. I actually managed to back the truck through their rear gate opening with only an inch of space clearance per side. By that time Kevin had come out to help unload and stack the wood but Kathy was so cold she needed to go inside to warm up. Melissa made some hot tea and snacks for Kathy and I but even after an hour Kathy still had shivers running through her body. Kevin was really surprised just how much wood we had actually hauled in the truck especially since the tool cabinets that are not removable take up so much space in the truck bed.  
This morning Kathy insisted that we bring a camera to document our activities today so we made certain to bring it along. We were nearly home when we realized that we’d been so busy with the wood and cold that neither of us took any pictures. It was after 1:00 by the time we got home and the fresh air and early morning had Kathy needing to have a Snap that would last nearly two hours. 
Melissa had given Kathy two containers of Won Ton Soup that they had gotten last night. They like Chinese food but not the soup and it comes with their orders. While Kathy warmed up the soup I went next door and got our favorite Chinese order to go with the soup. Thanks for the soup guys it all tasted great and Kathy finally started to warm up.  
Tomorrow we’ll get back to getting things accomplished so that we’ll be on schedule at starting our Fulltiming Adventure in another five weeks. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.

Bad News, Good News And A Visit.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After having a restless night of sleep I was still up before 7:30 this morning. I got busy setting things up for breakfast before getting an early start on my morning computer reading. Luckily not too many people had written their posts last night so I was nearly finished by the time Kathy got up. After breakfast as we were about to do the dishes we were shocked to find there was no running water. We’d forgotten the notice by the door saying it would be shut off at 9:00 this morning and we hadn’t gotten prepared.
I had planned to go outside to rearrange the back of the truck in preparation of picking up our load of firewood tomorrow. Looking outside everything was bleak and wet. The weather guessers had forecasted morning showers so as I was about to go outside around 9:30 the skies opened to a torrential downpour. Even wearing my raincoat, I would have been soaked it I’d gotten outside minutes earlier. Kathy suggested just waiting until tomorrow morning when things would be dryer.
The phone rang before I’d got my coat off so Kathy took the call. It was our building manager Dan telling us that the young couple that had said they would rent our apartment had just called to cancel because he was being transferred to Toronto. That meant that the Air Conditioner, Upright Freezer and bathroom shelf that they planned to buy was also out the window. Kathy said “she felt like she had just had the wind knocked out of her sails.” We had turned down offers from our online ads minutes after their visit so now we had to repost everything on Kijiji.
The rain did not make going outside very inviting so we were starting to have lunch when our good friend Pauline called to say she was coming to visit around 1:00. We were surprised to find the water had been turned on again and we had just finished washing the dishes Dan the building manager knocked on our door. He said he had a woman wanting to see the apartment but it had to be today because she was working all weekend. Since he is supposed to give us Twenty-Four Hours Notice he had to ask if we would mind. Kathy said why not but told him we’d be having company.
Pauline arrived on schedule and had only been here about ten minutes when Al called inquiring about the Air Conditioner. We continued our visit with Pauline when Dan arrived with the potential tenant. She was impressed by the apartment and the building. Al arrived around 2:00 and after a quick look at the Air Conditioner was happy to buy it.
Pauline had barely left the building around 3:00 when we received a call from Bill asking about our Upright Freezer. He arrived within ten minutes and was very satisfied with it but he asked if he could leave it with us. We told him it would have to be gone by no later than the middle of April and he said perfect. He also said we could use it until then.
Kathy has also been answering E-mails about the bathroom shelf after removing the sold items from Kijiji. She also said that “her sails were full again.” Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Still Making Progress.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

As we watched the 6 o’clock News last night the weather forecaster repeated what we’d already heard on the Weather Network that we were doomed to a late winter storm by this afternoon. As a way of continuing our progress towards our Fulltiming Adventure we had to make changes to our plans. I had to make a phone call to our son Kevin to tell him we’d be at his place earlier than normal for our weekly visit. 
This morning we went through our usual routines breakfast &computer reading but that changed with an early lunch. We were out the door by 12:00 bring with us rain resistant clothing but also light weight winter clothing. The gusting north wind was a constant reminder of what time of year it was and in this area spring is always throwing surprises at us. 
Our first stop was a tree removal service that sold firewood on the side with the intention of making a purchasing. Even though the sign on the door said they were open there was nobody around to answer my knocking on the door. Kathy’s answer was you snooze you lose so we headed in the direction of Amherstburg by the back roads. The reason we did that was because we had seen individuals who also sold firewood from their homes but at the time we had driven by because we were not in the market at the time. 
It wasn’t long before we arrived at Brian’s home and he gave us a tour of his different wood piles. We took his phone number and set a tentative time we might return. His wood was priced higher but split in smaller sizes making it better for campfires. 
It was just after 1:00 by the time we arrived at our son Kevin’s home to find he wasn’t home. When Kevin drove in the driveway with a loaner vehicle from Canadian Tire we knew he had a problem. The brakes on his truck had failed this morning due to a rusted line.  
We started cleaning along the outside of his garage where we planned on installing the newly purchased firewood racks. Since it was so cold outside it was a welcoming feeling working inside the garage to assemble them. Just before Kevin had to leave to pick up Cameron from high school he received a call from Melissa saying she had to work until 6:00 this evening. At that point Kathy said we’d head for home and visit another night. 
Instead of returning the way we had to get to Kevin’s we thought we’d take a different route. We drove past the Wildwood Golf and RV Park so that we could drive down Manning Road to get home. Since we also traveled down the same road going to SX Video for our computer repairs we thought possibly that was where we had seen the other home selling firewood. We were right! The gentleman came out explaining the different woods that were split smaller piled in a larger amounts and priced lower than Brian had. We’ll be picking up a load of Maple firewood and bringing it out to our son Kevin’s on Friday. 
We made a quick stop at the Credit Union for some banking. With having worked off our early lunch we decided to go to the Michigan Diner for a Fish and Chip for an early supper.  We never got the heavy rain we were supposed to today so we hope we are as lucky on Friday.

Setback but Recovered.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We are finally starting to recover from the change to Daylight Savings Time with me getting up shortly after 7:00 and Kathy getting up shortly after 7:30. After enjoying breakfast we once again enjoyed a two cup morning while reading at the computers.
With the reading completed we continued working on the computers where Kathy was once again doing research towards future RV parks that we might use later this coming fall. Being a firm believer that seeing things on a map would help to put things in a better perspective Kathy uses a magnifying glass to see the tiny writing on the map. (Warning disastrous moment about to happen.) She also wanted to see how close it was to other locations so she scanned the page too quickly using the magnifying glass. It was a good thing she was sitting down because the room started spinning and she thought that she was about to be sick. She had thrown her Equilibrium off and had no balance. She sat patiently while I stumbled through making our lunch. After with the help of a regular strength Tylenol and a two-hour Snap she managed to get her land legs back under her.
Shortly after 3:00 we drove over to our daughter Karen’s home to pick up our grandson Tyler to bring him to an Orthodontist’s appointment. His mom had asked Kathy (grandma) to sit in on the appointment because she was at work and his dad had a doctor’s appointment of his own and Tyler can never recall everything that the doctors say. Neither of us had ever really looked at Tyler’s teeth that much but were very surprised at how crooked they were. This will only be the starting point. 
After dropping Tyler off at home we stopped at the Metro grocery store to pick up some fruits and vegetables. We also got a ready cooked chicken and macaroni salad from their Deli for supper and leftovers for another day. Needless to say we didn’t quite get as much accomplished today as we’d planned but recovery was more important. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Making Progress On A Number Of Things.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Once again we woke to the sun peaking around the edges of the window shades but we knew by the way people were dressed outside that it wasn’t too warm. Trying something different for breakfast we still finished our coffees while reading at the computers. By the number of blogs that had posted overnight it was almost like it was a sign that here in Ontario the March Break was over for school children and adults that had to return to the daily grind today. 
After lunch I started updating our Fuel Logistics file with the help of the receipts that Kathy had pulled from the files before she got back to making the light darkening drapes for the trailer. This particular file that I am working on is one of the working spreadsheets that was lost when the new laptop kept putting all my files into OneDrive and not allowing me to only store them where I want. There were a lot of “Ifs” that could have prevented the problem but we’ll recover most of the files with time.
Since we had to take apart the first run on the drapes that Kathy had sewn she ran out of the proper colored thread today. While out running the one errand we chose to look a bit further down the road at another of the small shops we hadn’t gone to the other day. We managed to scratch a couple more of the early Christmas Gifts off of our shopping list. Arriving at Fabricland it took us longer to find the extra material, trim and thread because they are constantly moving things in the store.
Kathy started working on the curtains again as soon as we were back at the apartment while I started making a simple supper. She made more progress after supper but by the time the 6 o’clock News rolled around she was having problems with her hands so she called it a day. She’ll try to get further along tomorrow because we are now less than six weeks away from the start of our Fulltiming Adventure. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
