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.

Recovered, More Wet Weather, Delicious Meal and Learning New Tricks.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Neither of us had any problem falling asleep last night after a very tiring day. With a shortened night’s sleep the night before due to Yesterday’s Yard Sale and all the Fresh Air we were exposed to yesterday we had trouble staying awake long enough to post the Blog. Kathy was luckily sleeping soundly when the sound of thunder started rumbling outside. It was just enough to let me know we were having another storm before I fell back to sleep. 
The driving rain we woke up to.
We both slept late this morning but felt much better. With the Rain continuing to fall there wasn’t much that could be done outside so after breakfast, we finished our morning Coffee/Tea while reading on the Computers. Then after our morning chores were finished we wondered what else we could do with the rest of the day. That’s when the sky started brightening and the rain stopped. 
Chicken Noodle Soup, Crackers with Cheese and Berries on Yogurt for lunch.
While having Soup for lunch we discussed needing to make space in the trailer. While we were away this past winter while most people were shopping for Christmas Gifts for 2016 we were shopping for 2017 and getting some real bargains. All those special purchases had to be stored someplace so that we could still function in our Home and not be tripping over them. We declared our purchases upon re-entry into Canada and all the Immigrations Officer could do was shake his head and welcome us back to Canada. When our Home goes in for warranty work where these Gifts are stored will have to be EMPTY.

While I went outside to dump the waste tanks Kathy dug the majority of the Gifts from our closet. I brought the boxes that we had recently gotten inside so they could be packed but first I had to empty the bottom shelves in our bedroom. It took some time to pack everything in those boxes and get it loaded into the trunk of the car. Looking in the bedroom we now had a lot of extra space for our clothes that we recovered. Looking in the trunk of the car it was full. It was warm enough outside we actually had to change into cooler clothing before heading out. 

Our destination was Guardian Storage in Windsor where the first thing we did was pick up our mail. We then headed inside to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit where like last year we safely added this year’s Christmas Gifts until the time comes to wrap & distribute them.

The sky seemed to be filling with clouds again when we left our Storage Unit so we headed over to the East-End Walmart. We thought that we would just walk around to get some exercise but we ended up walking out with a few more groceries to fill the empty spots in our pantry. As we were leaving Walmart the sky was nearly Black in the West as we headed towards Tecumseh.

Kathy had brought one of the Gift Cards so we could eat out. It had been some time since we had gone to Swiss Chalet on Manning Road for a meal so that is where we were headed. Were we surprised when we walked in to find they were now sharing space with Harvey’s. When Kathy asked the Hostess when that took place she said last Christmas Eve. Swiss Chalet is famous for their Chicken Dinners but we know they are great at making Spare Ribs as well. We each ordered a Half Rack of Ribs that we could cut with a butter knife. We left at least half our fries because there was just too many and we still walked out very satisfied and we still have another meal on our Gift Card. When we came outside everything was very wet. It had rained quite heavily while we were inside.

We stopped at our daughter Karen’s house for a short visit. She and Greg were just getting ready to go meet some friends for dinner. As soon as they learned I had a new cell phone Karen immediately started loading all of their family phone numbers into it. Then Greg started showing me some of the features that I didn’t realize were on it. He showed me how to use them as well. They suddenly realized they were supposed to meet their friends so we said our Good Byes
At the end of our day.
As we headed towards Home there were large water puddles along the roads. Tomorrow most of the Weekend RVers will be leaving to go home under Warm Sunny Skies. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
