Bookcase Project Complete and Winter Is Returning

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

We were in bed early last night and Kathy slept until she got up this morning. I was wide awake by 4:00 in the morning and finally got up around 5:30 for a short walk around the Apartment before going back to bed and to sleep.
After opening the Balcony Blinds this morning we realized that the Weather Guessers were once again right. The parking lot was filled with puddles that would continue to grow throughout the day.
With our morning chores finished we worked together making lunch. We thought it wise that since this would be a moderate activity day that lunch be the larger meal. While I was busy cooking the Perogies and making Blueberry Tea Kathy was making Bacon with Cheese Sliders along with a dessert plate of Cookies and Yogurt Cups. It all turned out tasty and satisfying.

Once lunch was finished Kathy started cleaning up the Dishes while I started disconnecting Wires and Components from the older Television/Entertainment Center. With the old Center moved out it was just a matter of reconnecting it all in the new Unit.

There are Two Reasons we chose to use this Bookcase for this purpose. One was with the Television being across the room (12 Feet) if there was anything happening in the lower corner of the screen one of our Chairs could block Kathy’s view. The second was that the Entertainment Center and Dining Table are along the same wall allowing no room to sit back from the Table. This so this Bookcase raised the Television and it uses a smaller Footprint giving us more room at the Table.
The Television is tied to the Bookcase that is tied
 to the Wall. Our Local News on the Tube.
We did relocate our Stereo to the Bookshelf by our Love-Seat across the room. We still have more Videos and Music CDs in our Climate Controlled Storage Unit to bring to the Apartment that will help fill our new Entertainment Center.

We cooked a Medium Sized Store Bought Thin Crust Chicken Pizza for supper and ate it while watching the 6 o’clock Local News. We then watched a couple of episodes of Law and Order. It’s amazing how many episodes we missed during the years we were Fulltiming.

We tried to watch something else but most were Preempted by another Democratic Presidential Debate so we shut it down. We are forecasted to have Seasonal Weather heading our way. A quick peek outside shows all the vehicles in the parking lot have turned White. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Q: What happens to deposed kings?

A: They get throne away.


  1. I like your new entertainment center. Good idea on tying the TV to the shelf and then to the is not going anywhere!

    I do declare...this is the first time in a long time that I read that you guys do not leave your apartment!

    Sometimes it is good to take a day off now and then.

  2. Nice setup and a good idea to attach everything to the wall so it won't fall if someone bumps it.

  3. The bookcase looks great.

    The picture from your balcony is great ... most people think Canada is the great white north but your picture shows we have mild winters along with harsh winters.

    I love Law and Order and have seen every episode several times.

  4. Bookcase turned out nice - good looking and functional
