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.

Finding The Way, Let There Be Light and Fun Visit.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

By the time we finally got to bed last night we were both beyond tired. Because I’d barely slept on Tuesday falling asleep was easy but not for Kathy. She was suffering with Sinus Congestion so she was laying there awake during the two hours I slept. We spoke for a minute when I woke unexpectedly. Within minutes she finally fell asleep but guess who didn’t. Just like the night before my mind started doing everything but shutting down. When I did fall to sleep it would only be for a short while before my brain started thinking of something else.

We’ve mentioned this many times in the past and we actually have Herbal Teas such as Sleepy Time Tea that we occasionally drink in the evenings to help us get our sleep back in rhythm. We don’t use it as a constant relaxer as to avoid our bodies rejecting it’s affects. Another reason for not using it is that when we are already in bed and we fail to go to the kitchen in the middle of the night to make a cup of tea.

Even with our lack of sleep we were both up before 8:00 this morning so we were able to have our breakfast and complete our morning reading by 10:00. The rest of the morning chores followed quickly but then there was more to do.  I would spend the next hour and a half making phone calls trying to reschedule a minor surgery, find out what is happening with our Sigma Camera Lens repair and wishing my aunt Anna a Happy Birthday. (Not in that order) She was feeling better then the last time I called and we are looking forward to visiting with her and Bob soon. 

We used the few minutes before noon to cook Perogies with Grated Cheese and Bacon Bits along with a slice of Spice Walnut Loaf with Icing and Cinnamon on it. They were just enough without stuffing ourselves. 
Security Light Conversion.
After lunch Kathy returned to researching Plan B and C for our trip to the Southwest this coming fall. She has us back in Moab, Utah where we hope to see a lot of the different rock formations. 
That bright even facing the sun.
I moved our truck across the street to one of our weekend neighbour's site so I could set up the ladder near the nose of the trailer. Unlike yesterday when we were experiencing high Wind Gusts today we were only feeling a slight breeze. My task for today was to convert our outside Security Lights to LEDs. It didn’t take much to remove the Lens and Incandescent Bulb before using Rubbing Alcohol to clean the inside of the lamp. Even mounting the three LED Waffles was easy but when I attempted to connect the Wire Harness that I created the other day there wasn’t enough room. I had to shorten them both since both lamps are identical. Within ten minutes both Wire Harnesses were modified and I was connecting the first Lamp together. When you can see them in the bright sunlight they have to be bright. At three times the brightness, 1725 Lumens each combined they will use less then a quarter of one of the original Incandescent Bulbs would have.  It took more time to level the ladder then to convert the second Security Light
 Kathy made a wonderful Chicken Stir Fry for supper so we can keep our Carb intake down. For our dessert we had Strawberries on Yogurt.

Beautiful Sunshine all day with a light breeze. 
Around 5:30 we headed for Amherstburg with our first stop at Canadian Tire to pick up a replacement bulb for the truck that I forgot to do last night. Not being able to read the fine print on the bulb took longer to get the right one as there was only about thirty bulbs that looked the same. 
Winter Wheat is over a foot tall already.
We then headed over to Kevin and Melissa’s home for our weekly visit. We sat out on the back screened in deck where we enjoyed the fresh air but weren’t bothered by the Mosquitos. We talked about a number of things that most people never think to talk about and the way the conversation went we were all laughing at the same time. 
What we saw when we turned the corner.
By the time we got back to Wildwood Golf and RV Park we were wondering how our New LED Security Lights would look after dark. As soon as we turned the corner we knew because I’d forgotten the front light on before we went out. Driving up our street was like having a Spotlight shining in our eyes. Now those are Security Lights

As we compose this Blog we are both struggling to stay awake but that’s how we felt last night. We won’t take any chances tonight, we’ll each take a Tylenol to help us sleep. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Joke of the Day

Ask a silly question:

Why do croutons come in airtight packages?

Aren't they just stale bread to begin with?

  1. Great job on the security light. I switched to LED bulbs on many of my lights, they sure are bright!
