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.

Observations and Mad Dash Of Errands.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

While reading many of the Blogs we follow we’ve noticed that like a lot of others our sleeping habits have been changing due to the Coronavirus. Everyone was told to Stay Home, Social Distance then to Wear Masks. What all this is doing is reprogramming our Biological Clocks to make us stay up later as well as waking at hours that we appreciated as children. Many of us are feeling run down while the truth of the matter is we are not as busy as what we should be. We’re tired in the middle of the day because we are bored. Even if we exercise it’s not as much as we used to. This Virus has to be addressed soon or we’ll all be changing our wardrobes not so much on the Plus Side but on the Plus Size. As for the extra sleep my body appreciates it as it tries to recover lost sleep from years ago.

The Sun was filling the sky when within minutes of one another we began our day. There was a comfortable breeze coming through the Balcony Door. When breakfast was over we took our Coffee/Tea over to the Computers to get caught up with everyone before taking care of our morning chores.
We worked together taking inventory of what we had in the Fridge, Freezer and Pantry. This not only helped us make a Grocery List but it gave us ideas as to what we could have for lunch. Something light but nutritious enough to hold us until supper. The idea was simple we had Eggs Over Easy on Toas along with a Yogurt Cup for dessert topped off with a mug of Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows.
We took another quick look at the Computers before heading out the Door. We had a few things that we needed to take care of so we planned on completing everything by making a loop. As we were just around the corner from our first location the Train Crossing Gates came down for what turned out to be quite a lengthy Freight Train but it was travelling well above the City Speed Limits so it was gone in couple of Minutes.

Our first stop was at Guardian Storage where the first thing was to check our Mailbox.
We then drove back to the Trailer. Since it is scheduled to go back to the Dealership next week we extended all the Slides and did a final sweep to make certain there were no personal items left inside. Heavens we’d forgot the our Shower Caddie. After retracting all the Slides and shut the Lights we checked the Battery Monitor to see all the Batteries fully charged. Even though the Solar Panels charge the Batteries when they are full the Charge Controller prevents the Batteries from being overcharged.
After a quick check of the Basement we soon headed over to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. First we dropped off the few things we had just taken from the Trailer then we had things to pick up. Kathy wanted a Plastic Bin of Clothes to bring to the Apartment while I collected my Welding Machine that normally travels with us to do a small job for our daughter.

Three Stops, One Location, not bad. After heading back up Jefferson we stopped at Pioneer gas station to top off the car with Gasoline. Even though the price has been slowly creeping back up it has been nearly a month since we last did this.
Our next stop was at Dollarama where we had a few things to get from our Grocery List. By getting those items there rather then the grocery store we saved what we paid.
From there we stopped at the Zehr’s grocery store to get Produce and Frozen Foods before finally heading home.

I retrieved one of the larger Shopping Carts downstairs in our building to bring out to the Car. When we headed back inside it was more then full.

Since we over-purchased one thing on our List we ended up having a Store Bought Thin Crust Vegetarian Pizza for supper.

After months of our weekend 6 o’clock Local News being preempted by Golf Tournaments we were surprise when we were actually able to see the Local News on time.
Not sure what we’ll be doing tomorrow. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Don’t you hate it when someone answers their own questions?

I do.


  1. Lovely sunset. Are you selling your trailer?

  2. I joined your blog late and while I know you had previously had it serviced I have no idea as to the reason why you have to send it back again. If it is not too much trouble would you mind telling us?

  3. Hi Rick, glad you will be getting you rig fixed. A welder always has friends who just by chance have a project they need help with. ha ha ha Glad you can help your daughter. Have a great day.

  4. I hope they actually FIX it this time so you don't have to completely unload it again. I've got my fingers crossed for you.

  5. We're hoping your trailer gets fixed this time too. Seems there's always something with these RVS. Yep that was a lot of running around
