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.

Mother Nature Gets Written Up

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

I finally figured it out. Mother Nature mixed up Winter with Spring. There can be no other reasoning behind all these weird temperatures. Back in March we were experiencing temperatures that normally are not seen in this area until the later part of May to early June. We only had the occassional dusting of snow not the major downfalls that usually paralized traffic for days on end.

Now it is Springtime at the end of April and many parts of southern Ontario have been getting snow with daytime and night time temperatures that we should have seen back in March. Even the flowers are confused. Many plants started blooming as much as six weeks early and are now trying to survive night time lows below the freezing mark. Most people that mess up on their jobs like that end up being fired. I truly believe that Mother Nature should at least get demerit points taken off so maybe she might think twice about pulling a stunt like this again.
At least we dodged a bullet last night and woke to green grass and black asphalt this morning instead of what was predicted. Stepping outside made you scurry back to find extra layers of clothing to stop you from looking like your shorts were too tight. Looking at the predicted high for the day it was lower then the existing temperature but the wind chill was well below the freezing mark. It was decided this would make a good errand day.

Every year we remove all food stocks from the trailer and use it up at home through the winter so that it won't freeze or grow old and spoil. Today became the day to replace all those staples. Kathy has meticulously made lists over the years so we know what is needed in the trailer and what is not. With this year's list in hand we set out being carefull to only buy the food that will be brought out to the trailer once the weather clears. After almost two hours in the grocery store we came away well educated about the wholesomeness of much of the food we bought. We were also lighter from all the walking we did and the money that is no longer in our bank account. But we are ready.

Kathy and I would like to welcome yet another follower to our blog. Karen Phillips from the blog Wish Upon an RV Star along with her husband Al. This couple successfully operated their own business for nearly twenty years and sold it all to travel in their RV. Again Thank You for following and we hope to keep it interesting.
I know when things will really start to get interesting and that will be in 36 days when Kathy and I hit the road for our first trip this season. That means it is only 53 days until the start of Summer. Do you thing Mother Nature will have the seasons all sorted out by then. Let's Hope! Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.


What is the best way to speak to a monster?

From a long ways away!


  1. Our friends and families in Ontario totally agree with you about giving the pink slip to Mother Nature.

    Some of them are saying that she is a little angry and taking it out on you guys up there.

    We will be back there soon.
