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.

Scratching Off A Few Chores, Meeting Our New Neighbour and More To Do.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Even with the cooler temperatures last night we both managed to sleep soundly until the Sun started peaking around the corners of the window shades. After having breakfast and doing our morning reading we started working at getting some of the smaller things that we need to accomplish completed.

Yesterday while we were out in public at the Mall, Grocery Store or Visiting with our grandson last evening we somehow picked something up that left us both with scratchy throats and feeling achy. Strangely it’s not that time of year but it didn’t matter. Wanting to get things accomplished while your anchor is dragging is no easy task. 

For lunch we had Chicken and Wild Rice Soup which seemed to get a few things feeling better. Kathy then finished filling in the paperwork so we could submit the claim for my CPAP Mask Liners to our Supplemental Health Care Insurance while I gathered the trash and recycle from the containers.

Kathy then refocused her attention on the bedroom closet. While we were away last winter we found that Camping World carries special plastic clothes hangers for RVs. They have a shorter hook so that the clothes don’t drag on the floor or second clothing bar. The hook is made so they have to be pushed onto the bar not lifted off. After our Clothing Bar failure on our way south last fall we got the few packs they had in stock to try. Having success with them we continued getting more any time we found them but Kathy didn’t always have a chance to switch the clothes over. This afternoon that was her goal. Not only did she switch the remainder of the hangers but she found some cold weather clothes that will be brought back to our Storage Unit until the fall. The old hangers will be donated to the Goodwill.

We have a mailbox at the front of the Park so instead of waiting until we return to Windsor I walked up to the front of the park to mail it. Back Home I took all the trash and recycle that I gathered earlier and walked it to the Park Trash and Recycle Area. Because I haven’t been exercising enough lately my neck was really bothering me so I stopped in at the Park Exercise Room. As mentioned in the past, it’s not much but it’s better then nothing and by the time I returned Home I was feeling much better.

With plans to scratch at least one of the things I need to do off our list I went out to retrieve my hacksaw from the toolbox in the basement. I’d no sooner closed the basement door when our new neighbour Stan introduced himself. Even though I politely excused myself a number of times it wasn’t until Kathy called me to grill our supper that he allowed me to go with the promise that we’ll have a visit when we are not so busy. 

Kathy made a wonderful Salad to go with the Hotdogs I was grilling. Because the Hotdogs were still slightly frozen I managed to cut both the brackets with the hacksaw while they were cooking. As long as we continue working at these chores whenever we have a chance we are sure they’ll be finished by the time we head south in the fall. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
