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.

Low Immune System, Both Of Us Working Out, Getting A Few Chores Finished and Wet Weather Heading Our Way.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

It was minutes after 8:00 when we were both getting out of bed this morning even though Kathy had a rough night sleeping. One of the reasons we avoid crowds is that Kathy is very susceptible to germs. She can be across the room when someone sneezes and within hours she starts feeling the effects of it. Even though we are still in the summer season there were quite a number of people at the Steak Dinner that didn’t have the curtesy to sneeze or cough into a Kleenex last night. Even after having breakfast with a double helping of Coffee Kathy still needed a Snap (Short Nap) to help her shake this off.

The Chicken and Rice Soup we had for lunch also helped a little to get rid of the bug that was bothering her. We’ve talked a number of times about being more Physically Active but Kathy said she wasn’t feeling up to it. Telling Kathy what I had been taught years ago that being Physically Active will help build your Immune System she finally relented.

After pumping the Tandem Bicycle’s Tires we were soon on our way. We were out pedalling at a casual pace but we could still feel the strain in our legs because it had been over a month since the last time we rode. As we rode I explained to Kathy about not overdoing it on the first few trips out but we did manage to ride on every street in the RV Park before stopping at the Park Exercise Room
Finally Blooming inn our Flower Bed.
Kathy had never been inside this workout room and didn’t think there was anything there she could use. After some brief instruction and adjustments to the resistance on the Weight Machine Kathy managed to get some exercises in for her arms while I used the Free-Weights that were available. We didn’t overdo it but it was enough stimulation that we were both feeling better by the time we got Home.
Forgot the before picture but you can see the tear
 on the lead edge of our old Step Covers.
 Even though the Stress Test that I was told to do on our Trailer is simple and only involves hitching up to the truck Kathy suggested I wait until tomorrow. She wanted to do some minor work on the Trees we planted and fixing the Flowers that the Rabbits have been using as a bed to lay on. 
The new, better quality Step Covers.
While she did that I replaced our old Step Covers. Even though our covers were barely a year old they were ripping along the lead edge of the step which cause Kathy to almost do a face dive on the patio. When we went to pick the trailer up we also got the new set of Step Covers that we had ordered. These are much heavier in construction and are closer to actual Carpet then Astro Turf like the first set. 
Our Black & Decker Trimmer/Mower.
I hadn’t cut the grass since before we took the trailer in for service which was three weeks ago and it was really starting to show in some places. Getting our Black & Decker Trimmer/Mower out I started cutting only to have the first battery only last about Fifty Feet. I’d forgot to charge it the last time it was used. The fully charged Battery managed to get the rest of the grass mowed but it was a struggle. The grass was around six inches tall in some places and this is basically a Trimmer mounted on a Mower Deck. With the Weather Guessers on the Local News tonight calling for three days of rain this week I’ll be cutting it again before next weekend. 

For our supper tonight we grilled a Hawaiian Pizza with a small bowl of Cherries that more then filled us up. Tomorrow morning we’ll try to stress the trailer before the rain starts. With that information we’ll have a better understanding of the kind of repairs that will actually be needed. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
