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.

Collecting Things.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

We had another good night’s sleep after working hard yesterday. We were again tired enough to sleep until nearly 8:00 this morning. Thinking we might make this a more active day we had a bowl of Cereal for breakfast before taking our Coffee/Tea over to the Computers.

We were surprised when we read that Howard and Linda Payne from RV Dreams after Fifteen Years as Fulltimers have decided to hang up the Keys and settle into the Villages in Florida. They will however not be giving up RVing and will continue to promote the Lifestyle at RV Shows and hold their Seminars as long as there is a demand for them. Congratulations to the both of them for helping to educate many about the dos and don’ts about RVing.

Reading the Comment section of our Blog this morning our Good Friends Wayne and Sue from Washington State informed us that our site at La Posa South is still available. We will really miss being with these remarkable people who we grew close to over the last Three Winters in Quartzsite. As mentioned if we’d have had any inclination that I would have been Laid-Off when the project was completed we would be in Quartzsite at this moment. Kathy paid our First and Last Months Rent for the apartment the very morning I was Laid-Off. Now I have no choice but to find another job to build up or travel fund.
After doing our morning reading we both got into doing different kinds of research until it was time to think about making lunch. Today Kathy wanted to use up more of our Leftovers so she again made a Pork Roast Sandwich that we shared along with Carrots for a side and a Banana as our dessert.

With the Weather Guessers saying our high temperature would reach over Forty today we headed off to try to clean our belongings out our Trailer. What the Guessers failed to tell us was with the high Humidity it would still feel like it was Freezing. We put more things into the Truck that we’ll need in the apartment. Kathy didn’t want me starting the Blue Flame Heater so after only an Hour we closed up shop. We also stopped at our Climate Controlled Storage Unit to shop for a few other things.
After leaving the Guardian Storage Yard we drove over to Home Depot. We have a couple of Nightstands that were too small to safely hold our CPAP Machines at night so we used the End Tables from the Living Room and they worked perfect. Those End Tables were too big for the Living Room so Kathy was going to look for something smaller. Instead we found a beautiful piece of Wood to make doors and some Hardware so I can repurpose the Nightstands. In the Spring we’ll be busy staining a lot of our furniture.
There were other supplies that we needed that had us stopping back at Canadian Tire. It is amazing how everything we use seems to need AAA Batteries. We also picked up another Two Pack of Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner. When the Cashier heard what we were using it for she said she was going to try it.
Rush Hour Traffic was starting to slow down and since we still had things to do we headed over to KFC where we used a coupon to enjoy our supper at a reduced price. Since we’ve cut back on what we eat even thought we’ve eaten this same meal before we felt overly stuffed.
To get rid of that feeling we knew we needed to do some walking so we stopped at Princess Auto. We both headed in different directions and we both found useful items to bring home with us. Kathy found Latex-Free Disposable Rubber Gloves that we can both use. I found a Tape Measure that stays how far out you pull it and only retracts when you push the button. Where were these last week. The good thing was that these were both “On Sale”.
Our next stop was a Zehrs to get some Produce, Cheese, Bread and Soup.

We finally made it back to the apartment just before 7:00. After dropping Kathy at the Front Entrance I parked the Truck then had to hand haul all everything up because there were no Shopping Carts available.

Tonight we’ll have to watch the 11 o’clock News because we missed the evening News. Tomorrow we’ll get back into cleaning some here and some there. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Words of Inspiration

Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.

  1. 11:00 news? I haven't stayed up that late in years!! LOL
    Love the idea of the door tables. I use a door for my quilt cutting table. Works like a charm.

  2. Bummer about being laid off, hopefully you find something soon!

  3. You both are very creative. I wonder where all those shopping carts disappear to. Do you think that the get left on others floors?

  4. Are you going to have to winterize your rig now? So many people I follow have not made it down for the winter.

  5. You guys continue to be busy. At least you did not have snow today.

  6. You may want to buy one of those folding shopping/laundry carts
