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.

Plan One Thing Do Another as Time Gets Closer.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

With the heavy rain falling last night we just kept the windows closed and the Air Conditioner on. The result was that we both slept until nearly 9:00 this morning. That was probably our body’s way of recovering the sleep we lost while staying up late talking on Thursday night.

I was in the kitchen getting things ready for breakfast when the phone rang at 9:05. Mark was returning phone calls today and was in the office by himself because his secretary was off for the Long Weekend. He was swamped yesterday and didn’t get the voice message but did find Rosa’s note on his desk this morning. We talked business then when that was over we had time to talk about some personal things. Mark is one of our biggest fans and hopes that when he Retires he’ll be able to travel like we are doing.

Kathy had taken a Night-Time Tylenol Sinus Tablet before going to bed last night so she was feeling much better this morning. She enjoyed looking out towards the Golf Course watching the dedicated Golfers out doing battle with the wind. The flags hardly had a ripple in them but those people were out there trying their luck. 
The temperature was low today but look at the Wind.
After our usual breakfast and reading at the Computers and Morning Chores I planned to start installing the new LED Light in the Bedroom Cabinet. Seeing what tools would be needed I was about to start that when Kathy suggested I recall the Other Place that didn’t return my calls yesterday before noon. Calling the number and going through the Telephone Automated Merry-Go-Round I was met with a different recording today saying that the person would be back in the office on Tuesday. I left another message guaranteeing that I’d be calling back at that time.

Since it was now past noon and we’d had a lite breakfast we worked together at making sandwiches that helped to use up even more of our food stocks from the Fridge. The way we are going right now there will hardly be anything left to take out of there on Monday.

Kathy wanted to line the Pantry and new China Cupboard with the Anti-Slip Material we had purchased but thought that it had been packed away in one of the boxes already brought to our daughter’s garage for storage. With a smile on my face I reached in the one box that had been left behind and pulled it out. We spent the next hour and a half lining six of the shelves ensuring that nothing would be sliding around while we travel down the road.

We also assembled three more boxes and started packing away almost all the containers from the Pantry on the Main Slide. In order to repair the Main Slide at the Dealership it will have to be completely removed so we have been told we will have to empty everything from the Fridge/Freezer and Cabinets on the Slide itself. We managed to fill another two and a half boxes before taking a break.

By the time we finished that it was after 5:00 so while I loaded two of the boxes we’d just filled in the truck Kathy started making supper. Keeping in mind to use up what we could from the Fridge/Freezer Kathy first made Hard Boiled Eggs from which she made us each a Deviled Egg, to go with the Salmon Filet that she sautéed to go with Garlic Noodles she made for a side.

Since she cooked that all by herself the least I could do was wash the dishes afterwards. The Weather Guessers are calling for a cooler weekend so we’ll be shutting the A.C. and hopefully I’ll be able to get not only the light that I want to install finished but other things on our To-Do List as well. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
