Prayers Needed, Staining Wood Pieces, Inside Repairs and Cutting The Grass.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

It seems that we are finally getting in to a routine where we are actually sleeping soundly at night and then waking at a decent hour in the morning. We were both up around 8:00 this morning and as we had breakfast the discussion turned to what we wanted to get done today. Looking out at the totally cloud covered sky I had to say that I was “hoping to get some wood staining done today”. As usual we finished our morning Coffee/Tea while getting caught up on our morning reading on the Computers.

It was while reading the Gypsy Journal RV Travel Newspaper that it really hit home of just how fortunate we are and why we feel that we made the right decision about being Fulltime RVers while our health still allows us to do so. We have followed Nick and Terry Russell’s adventures for over ten years now and when you read that someone’s 35 year old daughter might not survive can be scary. Many miracles have happened through the simple act of Prayer so if you can Tiffany really needs everyone’s Prayers to help her pull through this challenge in her life. 

Kathy wanted to clean the inside of our Home from top to bottom today so starting in our bedroom that’s what she did. As stated earlier keeping an eye on the clouds I set up a plastic tarp on our Picnic Table and started staining all the Faces and Supports that I produced for our Cabinet Modifications on the Table Saw at our son Kevin’s Home about two weeks ago. Wearing disposable gloves so I wouldn’t stain my hands I still could only do three sides on each of the four dozen pieces there were to do. With only a handful of pieces yet to do I had to ask Kathy to wait a few minutes when she called me in for lunch. 

Salad and the leftover Man-Wich hit the spot for lunch along with another cup of Coffee. Before I went back outside Kathy needed my assistance at moving our easy chairs so she could clean behind them. Again before I left she found a couple of quick repairs that needed to be done all caused from towing our Home across the continent.

Since the wood stain was still Tacky due to the high Humidity I drove back to the Park Office to see if they had gotten an answer about where to bring the pile of Clay that is now in the back of the truck. Darlene had just stepped out of the office for the day so the young lady taking her place wasn’t able to give me an answer. We’ll have to try again tomorrow.

Arriving back Home I noticed the grass has really been growing and since we were both working on the Flowerbed when the Grass Cutters came around the last time they just skipped our site. That didn’t bother me because they have a habit of cutting it too short in the Hot Weather which leaves you with brown grass. It took all of ten minutes to Cut and Trim our site using our Battery-Powered Black & Decker Mower/Trimmer. The grass looks manicured and is a lush Green.

I went inside to cool off and give Kathy a hand at putting the furniture back in place. As we talked about what else we needed accomplish Kathy started checking our accounts but couldn’t get On-Line. I tried all kinds of things, rebooting the Modem, Router and Kathy’s Computer with no luck. After trying my Computer we found that it to have the same problem. A quick call to Cable 1 where Chris told me they were replacing the system in the Park and it would be up and running soon.

Instead of wasting our time Kathy started doing her Entrees in our Expenditure Spreadsheet while I went back outside to finish staining the last side of the Faces and Supports. By this time the Sun was finally out in full force so I was hoping that it would dry before too long. 

For supper Kathy made Macaroni and Cheese while I grilled a couple of Hotdogs on the Weber. We were finally able to get On-Line after the 6 o’clock News was over and get caught up on our research. I put away the Stained Wood just before the Sun set. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
