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.

Moving Furniture While Practicing Social Distancing.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

Last night we both slept fairly well after having had a Sleepy Time Tea before going to bed. There were a few moments of wakefulness as we turned over but otherwise we woke up well rested.
When we finally got to our Computers the first thing I checked was The Weather Network and their Spring-like Forecast for the next couple of days had us rearranging our plans for the day.
We had the Leftover Homemade Meat Pie and Asparagus for our lunch then we topped it off with a Clementine Orange, Chocolate Chip Cookies as well as a Yogurt Cup for dessert. It was just as tasty as the other day.
After a gathering a few supplies we were soon on our way. Our destination was our Climate Controlled Storage Unit at Guardian Storage. The first thing we had to do was to get the Truck ready for hauling Furniture. With the Tonneau Cover rolled up I then had to raise our Wind Deflector before removing our Fifth Wheel Hitch.
Our next step was to move Boxes and Storage Bins so that we could move the Curio Cabinet along with the Oak Dining Table and Chairs from the very back of the Unit. Once those items were in the hall we had to replace what we weren’t bringing in the Truck along with the Hitch. Loading the Truck took very little time but what took longer to do was to Strap everything in place so that nothing would move while being transported especially the Curio Cabinet that was standing upright.
We made a quick stop at the Trailer. Last night I suddenly remembered this is now Spring. Even though the Trailer had been Winterized it is not ready for the rituals of Mating Season. Even though I added a metal plate on the back of our Pinbox birds would squeeze through the seal at the front of it. When I arrived I found our Pinbox already filled with grass for a nest. I got quite a bit out before adding the wooden block that had ended that problem last year.
It was already 3:30 when we headed out the Gate. It felt strange travelling the streets during Rush-Hour and there was hardly any traffic. We simply drove south on Walker Road until we reached the town of Harrow.
Our destination was to our son Ken and his fiance Heather’s apartment. We made certain to wear Masks and Gloves as a way of not only protecting ourselves but them as well. Who knows who could be a Carrier these days. They truly appreciated the furniture but didn’t realize that they are also helping us by taking it.
It was 5:45 when we arrived back in Windsor and we were feeling hungry. Even with all the restaurants and fast foods closed to dine in they still have Take-Out and Drive-Thru. We went to Wendy’s where we used a Coupon for our supper at the Drive-Thru. The young ladies working the windows were wearing Masks as well as Gloves. We sat in the parking lot enjoying the Chicken Sandwiches we had gotten. It wasn’t until we finished that we realized just how hungry we were.

We missed the beginning of the 6 o’clock Local News but we knew what they had been talking about. The Coronavirus, Social Distancing and Staying in Place.

We’ll be doing some at home chores tomorrow and if we are lucky we might even be back at the Storage Unit. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Well that's one way to lighten your load... it got you out of the house at least. Keep at it... slow and sure, don't overdo it - no one wants to go to a Dr these days...

  2. It always feels good to clean out storage and a plus they were appreciative.

  3. Your storage unit is slowly getting leaner and that is always a good thing. I wish we had a donating place like Salvation Army or Goodwill Industries in town it would make it so much easier to be able to get rid of so many items I no longer need but that are still in good shape.

  4. Sounds like you are making plans to downsize or say good bye to that storage unit. Our plan was to downsize ours this summer still hoping it happens. Good luck with yours. Stay safe and healthy.

  5. Good that you were able to find a home for your furniture. Less to store now.
