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.

More Organizing, Adjusting, Home Cooked Meal and More Rain.

Our Location today is at Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Last night Kathy slept pretty good and actually woke up well rested this morning. I thought that I had slept well only waking a few times but still slept until nearly 9:00 this morning and what woke me was the Sunlight that was seeping past the Window Shades in the living area of the Trailer. I didn’t even have everything ready for breakfast when Kathy joined me downstairs.

With the Sun shining brightly there were all kinds of Golfers out on the Links at the end of our Street but they were all wearing Long Pants and Jackets. There was a steady breeze that was blowing and soon the Sky started filling with the Thick Clouds that we’ve become accustomed to recently.

Since we are still having Issues going On-Line and making Comments we only spent a short time on the Computers this morning while we finished drinking our Coffee/Tea. We also both had more inside chores to do to make this Trailer back into our Home.

Kathy was busy re-applying some personal touches to our new Closet Doors that were installed while the Trailer was back at the Jayco Factory Repair Center. I refilled our Blue Streak Toilet Sanitizer system which also helps to clean the Black Tank before gathering the Trash and Recycle. Kathy also needed a hand for a couple of minutes which helped her finish before we stopped for lunch.
Lunch was a Salmon Sandwich with a Half an Apple and a small piece of Apple Strudel. It was just enough to keep us going through the afternoon.

Kathy wanted to reorganize her section of the Bedroom Cupboard that we also use for storage.

That’s when I took what I thought would be a quick walk to the Park Trash and Recycle Area but before I got two sites up the street Kevin and Lorrie started asking more details of where we went to the Desert for the winter. Even though I had explained it to them before we had the Trailer here to show them it seemed to have escaped their memories. Kevin didn’t think we had Solar Panels on the Roof because they are still in the Flat Position and he hadn’t seen them. After walking back to our Site and showing him that the Panels were actually up there he started to better understand how we could survive being “Off the Grid”. I also pointed out that we had gotten Half of our Electricity Deposit back last fall because we had left the Converter turned off and had used what energy the Sun was willing to give us for Free.

I had barely gotten rid of the Trash when I met another Rick who used to work at the Heinz Plant in Leamington before it closed in 2014. I used to work with someone with the same last name as his but it was nobody that he knew.

Back at our Site after putting the Hose Cover on to protect our Water Hose from the Sun’s Rays I finally got our Tandem Bicycle re-assembled so that we can start riding around here for some exercise.

Kathy was concerned about the height of our Solar Powered Chandelier so I raised it so no one would bump their head on it. Having just installed the Gazebo we were also surprised to find Rain would gather on one certain spot between the Roof Supports. Having a piece of PCV Pipe in our Garden Shed I used Wire Tie Material that is used for tying plants, to lash it to the existing Frame-Work which eliminated the low spot in the Roof.
We worked together in the kitchen prepping Vegetables that Kathy would Sautee as sides for our supper. Then I went outside to grill a couple of Steaks we had planned on having while a Karen’s house. This was our first Home Cooked Meal since our return and everything tasted wonderful.

I barely got inside door when it started Raining fairly steady for over an Hour then it started the Wave Effect like we had on Saturday. I’ll get some pictures of the Solar Powered Chandelier working in the Gazebo when it’s not Raining. We’ll see what happens tomorrow.
Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. I'm sure it will take a little time to get the trailer back to the way you want it.

  2. I was just going to ask for pictures. Can't wait to see the gazebo in action.

  3. Hard to keep up with you if I don't read everyday!
