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.

Making Progress, Busy Day, Overcast Sticky Humid, Strange Weather!

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Getting up shortly before 8:00 this morning it almost felt like we’d been drugged but the only thing we had was Fresh-Air. We had a difficult time getting started even after having our morning Coffee/Tea. Looking outside the Sun was in competition with the Clouds to see how much of the sky either of them could fill. By the time we’d finished our reading we had a better idea of what we’d be doing with our day. 
Removing Patio Table from the Box.
While Kathy did some quick research on the computer I headed outside to get our new Patio Set out of the car. Since I was working alone extra care was taken to avoid any scratches or dings that might occur. I did find it interesting that the side marked TOP was the direction that the feet of the chairs were pointed which could have been a disaster if the box had been hit the least bit on the Bottom. After leaning the chairs against the trailer, I inverted the Table on our picnic table and started the assembly process. Kathy came outside to sit in the shade and keep me company but I got her to start removing the protective plastic from the chairs. I finally found the Instructions after I had everything put together.
The sun was reflecting off the windows as Kathy took this picture

Our New Tandem Bicycle is under the  Blue Tarp.
Once we finished getting the Table setup where it would be located we took the time to actually measure that section of the Patio. We had been told the previous Gazebo that had been on that spot was larger then the visible footprint that was left behind. Now we’ll be looking for a smaller size then what we had been searching for. Kathy went inside to start getting ready for the errands we needed to run. I finished removing the last of the debris that was still in front of our trailer now leaving it spotless.

It was after 11:00 when we took off and our first stop was the Park Office. When Val visited the other day she also brought the final Electric Bill that we owed on our old site. Instead of just continuing to make payments like we did last year so we wouldn’t have Sticker Shock at the end of the season Kathy insisted we pay it off completely.

The next stop was right around the corner in front of the 19th Hole Restaurant where a Mailbox is located. We’ve had a letter to mail for the last few days and even though we’ve traveled to Windsor and Amherstburg where the mail is picked up more frequently we would forget to do it. At this rural location the mail is only picked up once a day during the week but at least it’s been mailed. 

Our next stop was in Windsor at the Pharmacy in the building where Kathy’s Family Doctor is located. We didn’t write it on a list we had the other day and missed picking up the Special Calcium Pills that Kathy needs.

Just those few stops and it was already past 12:30 so we stopped at Wendy’s where we had lunch topped off by a Frosty to help cool us down.

Our next stop was Guardian Storage to pickup our Mail before heading over to the Credit Union to do some banking.

A stop at Walmart allowed us to walk around in Air-Conditioned comfort mainly for exercise but we also managed to walk out with a few groceries that will be needed.

It was nearly 4:00 by the time we reached Home so while Kathy put away the groceries I drove the truck over to the Park Recycle and Trash Area to get rid of most everything I could. Then it was necessary to drive to the front of the Park by the Service Building to drop off the plants we’d removed from our Flowerbed as well as the branches I trimmed yesterday.

Back Home again it was now time to start working on our Pill Doucettes. I’ve mentioned before that when I do this I can do up to Forty-five Days of meds which means they are not always done on a Saturday Night and the amount of Pills on hand determines how many days will be done at a time. Remember the Special Calcium Pills we picked up this morning without them we would have had a big problem. I managed to complete Kathy’s Doucettes before supper. 
Salad, Corn, Lasagna, French Pastry for dessert and Coffee.
Kathy made a Salad along with Lasagna and some Corn for supper and there’s still more Lasagna for another meal.

I managed to finish my Doucettes after we watched the 6 o’clock News. After recounting the Prescribed Medications we have on hand and entering those numbers in the Computer I now know when I’ll be doing the Doucettes again, when I’ll be calling the Pharmacy to order them and how many Days (110) it is before we leave for the Southwest.

We’ll see what we can accomplish tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
