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.

Checking Things Off Our To-Do List, Date Set for Repairing Our Home and Missed Photos.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Why is it that we’ve been working our backsides off all day, sleeping like rocks with the windows open and we are waking up late and still dragging the last few days. It only went down to 52 F (11 C) last night but yet we didn’t wake up this morning until 8:00 this morning. We went through our usual routine but were out the door before 10:00 in an attempt to finish transforming our new site into our Home
We finished the brick bordering and adding the decorative stone
around these trees this morning.
Last night I showed how we had planted an additional two trees at the rear of our site to add some privacy. What we did this morning was to recreate the brick border in an unusual shape to encompass all three trees and it turned out looking nice and uniform but some how we forgot to photograph it today.

With that completed Kathy went inside to start making lunch while I started rearranging the brick around the Flower Hanging Post in our yard. I had the grass removed, the bricks and cloth laid when Kathy called me in for lunch. 

Kathy had made a lovely Vinegarette Salad, Perogies and Strawberry covered Yogurt for dessert. It all tasted wonderful, help us to recharge and didn’t weigh us down.

As soon as lunch was over Kathy did up the dishes while I installed the decorative stone around the Flower Hanging Post. After reviewing today’s pictures and finding another missed shot we’ll have to get them when it’s daylight and not raining. 
Patio Stones recessed where a Tree once stood.
Since we were told that we would have to relocate our Firepit near the front of our site we figured we would locate it on a raised mound behind our Flowerbed. After laying the Patio Stones on the mound and removing the grass everything went smoothly until I tried leveling the stones. There must have been a big tree that had once stood on that spot that had been taken down and the stump ground but the roots were still there. A simple half-hour task turned into a two-hour job which involved chopping away at numerous tree roots until they were low enough that the Patio Stones were level.

While I was working on the Firepit Kathy took a call from Stephanie from Leisure Trailer in Lakeshore. They finally got all the parts from Jayco to properly fix our Home so they set the date for the second week in August to do it. Would you believe we’ll be out of our Home for a week while all these repairs take place so it will be like we are on vacation from our Fulltime RV Lifestyle
Firewood Rack and Barrel Patio complete.
After finishing the Firepit Kathy thought we should call it a day but I wanted to get as many things crossed off our To-Do List as possible. There were more Patio Stones that needed to be laid to complete where our Firewood Rack and Barrels would be stored. This required building the ground level up to make everything flat. Remember all the Clay that has been dug up so that trees could be planted, well that’s what I used. We finally called it a day shortly after 5:00 so while I put things away Kathy went in to start making supper. 
Toasted Hot Dogs and Beans for supper.
It wasn’t until today’s pictures were transferred to the Computer and it was dark out that the missed pictures were noticed. The Local Weather Guessers are also forecasting lots of Rain and Humidexes feeling like 100 F (38 C) for our area for the next two days so we’ll see what we can do inside during that time. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
