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.

Plans Change, Saving Money and More News.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

This is getting contagious. We both slept late this morning myself until 8:20 and Kathy more then an Hour later. Even though we couldn’t see the Sun behind the Clouds it was bright enough outside that I simply opened the Bedroom Blinds to wake her up. Darn I didn’t even get the chance to Kiss her until she was in the other room.
Breakfast was simply Coffee/Tea that we drank at our Computers. Kathy received a message from our daughter-in-law Melissa that her mother Sally did not want a Funeral but only a showing for the immediate family before Cremation. There will be a Service at a later date. Knowing what we both went through before we told her to watch out for her father Al. When you loose your spouse especially the man who always depended on his wife it is not uncommon to forget to eat. It is like a Fog envelops you.

With all the Weather Guessers painting a rather White picture for our area we knew that if we were going out today it would have to be sooner then later. Another thing they pointed out was our high of 37 F (3 C) happened right after midnight and it would be all downhill from there. We also discussed ways to improve on our comfort. With each suggestion we added more things to our List.

As soon as our inside chores were completed I headed out to the Truck so that I could find the Screws in my Organizers to complete a few more inside projects. Even though I thought that I was dressed against the cold the West Winds cut right through me. By the time I was back in the Apartment I needed to warm up.
We worked together to make Grilled Turkey and Cheese Sandwiches garnished with Olives for lunch. Cookies and Yogurt Cups for dessert with Coffee/Tea as the topper.
We were out the door close to 1:30 making Canadian Tire our first stop. We realized that the Bookshelf we have is smaller then we anticipated. Considering the number of Books that Kathy reads and the few Accent Pieces we have we needed to find its twin. We lucked out with the Bookshelf then needed to find Shelf Liners. We were practically back to the door before I remembered where they were. In the Aisle next to where we found the Bookshelf.
Our next stop was the Motor City Community Credit Union to get Quarters and Loonies for the Laundry. For security purposes every hour someone comes along to gather the small change including the rolls of Quarters. It took all Three Tellers together to make up a roll of Quarters.

We swung around to Value Village more as a way of having someplace to walk but ended up finding another Accent Piece for the Apartment at a price we couldn’t pass up.
We then stopped at Dollarama to pick up a few miscellaneous items we needed. The best part was the lower costs we paid for these quality items.
Keeping in the theme of lower costs we headed over to Bulk Barn where we stocked up on Peanuts, Raisins and Cranberries.
It was nearly 5:00 so we headed over to Taco Bell where we were able use a Coupon to have a satisfying meal at a lower then normal price.

We were able to get everything in the Apartment before the 6 o’clock Local News started but due to “Technical Difficulties” it was being broadcast from London instead of Windsor and even then they were having audio problems

We then had time to read more RV Blogs and read about the shock and sadness most are feeling in the wake of the passing of George Yates from Our Awesome Travels. Suzie was able to post a Link for those who will be able to attend the Funeral. We’ll continue to keep Suzie and George’s Family in our prayers at this time of grieving.

Kathy had thought a TV Special was going to be aired this evening but she had the Month wrong so we finished the night with another Hour of CNN coverage of the Impeachment Trial Coverage.

So far everything outside is still Green and Brown. We hope it stays that way. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

  1. I think it is wonderful that you can sleep late, you have no idea how lucky you are. If I had a husband that woke me up while I was still sleeping...he would not be my husband anymore...just saying :)

    George will be missed but at least he is no longer suffering.

  2. Lucky you get to sleep in!! I love that you always have coupons or find great deals when it comes to food ... and furniture for that matter!!

  3. George will be missed by so many

  4. Saving all those pennies and soon you two will be back on the road.

  5. Sounds like a busy day but always nice to get things accomplished. Nothing wrong with sleeping in...:)

  6. Wow more bad news for you guys. So many losses. I'm sorry to read of your friend George. It really has been a rough January so far. Hoping the rest of the year turns a more positive corner!
