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.

Happy Mothers Day, Homemade Soup, Max-Air Fan Working and Celebrating with Family.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

We hope that all our readers enjoyed a Wonderful Mothers Day with their families.

Coming Home early from the Welcome Back Party at the Park Clubhouse last night had not been our intention but ended up being necessary so that we wouldn’t embarrass ourselves by falling asleep at the table. I had partially written some of our Blog before we had left but Kathy was still nearly falling asleep in her chair waiting for me to finish so that she could Proof Read it.

When I got up and started opening the window shades this morning the only thing visible in the sky were clouds. Checking the Weather Network it was showing low temperatures that had not been forecasted so the Electric Fireplace was immediately turned on to take the dampness out of the air. When Kathy joined me downstairs it seemed like the sky was greeting her and the clouds started letting the Sun shine through. Once breakfast was over we brought our Coffee/Tea over to the Computers to finish while we got our morning reading completed. 
Our Maxx Air fan working the way it is supposed to.
Since we’ll have to empty our Fridge and Freezer when we have the slide repair done Kathy has been slowly using things up from the Freezer. This morning she had me chopping up some vegetables while she started heating up some Turkey Stock to make some Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup. Having that simmering on the stove was making it difficult for me to concentrate on the job I was doing upstairs. 
Third fuse from the left (5 Amp) now controls our bedroom fan.
Last Friday I managed to get the wiring in our Electrical Panel modified and our new Maxx Air Exhaust Vent installed but not connected. Yesterday there just wasn’t any time to finish the job. This morning it took about fifteen minutes to get the Wiring completed at the fan, the trim adjusted and mounted. The biggest problem was finding a 5 Amp fuse. I have Glass Fuses, Mini Fuses, Resettable, Automatic Fuses but it took nearly a half hour to find a 5 Amp fuse. The fan works like a charm and Kathy likes the fact that it is reversible so now we’ll be able to stay cool at night when we are “Off the Grid” and not using the AC
Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup.
The Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup was very filling, tasty and it helped take the chill we had been feeling all morning. Since we’ve returned from our Southwest trip we’ve both had trouble feeling warm with the below normal temperatures our area has been experiencing this spring. The best part is there is there is enough soup for another meal. 
Kathy made Chocolate Pecan Squares this afternoon.
While Kathy continued working in the kitchen I walked down to the Park Trash and Recycle Area before returning and doing other outdoor chores. I put tools and electrical supplies away, dumped our tanks, checked our Propane, swept our Patio and gathered a lot of the small twigs and put them in our Firepit

Around 4:30 we headed for Tecumseh to our daughter Karen and son-in-law Greg’s home. We arrived just as Greg was finishing assembling new Patio Furniture. We had been invited over for a light Barbecue to celebrate Mothers Day. The meal was great but being able to visit with the family was the best part of all.

It was after 8:00 before we started heading Home and even though the sunset was nice it only made us yearn more to be back in the desert of Arizona. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Joke of the Day

If at first you don't succeed

blame someone else and seek counselling.


  1. Glad you got the Maxx Air fan going. You will really enjoy it when you head out for the southwest in 170 days.

  2. During the time we were downstate visiting with family I never even opened up the computer so I am now catching up. Sounds like you two have been busy, as always. Glad to read you were able to open your slide, finally. It is amazing how much roomier a slide makes it feel but having total access to the kitchen must be the best part. Also glad to read you did not float away with all the rain. Sorry to read you still were not able to get the personal use sticker. Sounds like a nice Mother's Day and what beautiful flowers from a lovely daughter.
