It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Finding Misplaced Items, Running Errands and Getting Sound Advice.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Sleeping with the windows open is something that we prefer doing until it starts dipping below the Fifty-Degree mark and that is what happen last night. We made certain that all the windows and roof vents were closed before going to bed. When my eyes focused on the clock this morning I nearly jumped out of bed as it was past 9:00. We weren’t late for any appointments it’s just that if I sleep too late in the mornings I generally start having a hard time to sleep at night and that’s not what I want to happen.

There was no way that Kathy could not hear me opening the Window Shades in the living area. She was sitting at the Dining Table before I’d even started getting things ready for breakfast. After eating we brought our Coffees over to the Computers as a way of Multi-Tasking. Some of the blogs we were reading were referring to Hurricane Harvey and how they might be affected by it. On this evening’s 6 o’clock News the Weather Guessers were saying that it has actually Increased in Intensity. We’ll be praying for all those in this storm’s path. 

Yesterday we spent most of the day getting everything from the boxes and suitcases put away so that we could once again function in our Home. For our lunch today Kathy realized we didn’t have our Cooking Utensils. We rechecked all the Cupboards, under the Kitchen Counter and the Upper Pantry but there was no sign of them. We decided to have soup for lunch so when Kathy reached in the Lower Pantry where I had installed extra shelves she started pulling out her missing Cooking Utensils. We had already sealed the boxes when packing things away so Kathy simply decided to put them in the Lower Pantry. The problem was that she had forgotten that she did that.

along with Strawberry covered Yogurt for dessert.
We needed to run some errands so once lunch was finished around 1:00 I went outside to transfer the Suitcases from the truck to the car. There was plenty of sunshine today with some clouds but the temperature was perfect. 

It was around 1:30 when we arrived at Canadian Tire in Windsor to get some trash bags not only for our containers but to be used for storage. As we were leaving we noticed that we were in the middle of Afternoon Rush Hour and traffic was nearly bumper to bumper. 

We next drove over to Home Depot where I returned some Household Wiring that wasn’t used last year. Not having the receipt they simply issued a Home Depot Value Card that we’ll be able to use the next time we need something from them.

Down the road we stopped at the Pioneer gas station for gas for our car. We have put lots of mileage on it in the last couple of weeks so it was time. 

After collecting our Mail from our box at Guardian Storage we went back to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit where after covering it with a large clear trash bag we returned our Luggage Set. We also took some of the Toiletries we had stockpiled over the years when we lived in the apartment.

We made a stop at Princess Auto where I took advantage of a few bargains that were advertised on their E-mail Flyers. They had a set of Heavy Duty Road Hazard Triangles that were half the cost of the ones we already have and some Foldable Headphones that we’ll both use when we have to be exposed to loud noises. 

Driving over to Motor City Credit Union we had some banking to do. Because it was already after 4:00 and we were in the same parking lot we walked to Taco Bell where thinking outside the box we had our supper. 

We drove over to Walmart where we looked for replacement slippers for me but they didn’t have any big enough in my size. 

Driving over to Zehrs we spent some time getting the necessary groceries that will tide us over for another week. 

After taking a lot of the back roads to get back Home to Wildwood Golf and RV Park we managed to have enough time to unload the car before watching the 6 o’clock Local News

After reading about the problems we are presently having with our RV this evening our dear friends Elaine and Rick Cochrane from E & R's Travels called to try and help us determine the severity of the problem. When they are not on the road both Elaine and Rick work in one of the better RV Dealerships in Moncton, New Brunswick. They gave me ideas how to check the extent of the problem and how to have the dealership try to deal with it. We were on the phone for an hour until they were certain I knew what to look for. That’s what you call Good Friends. Thanks for the advice guys.

We’ll try to put their advice into practice tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
