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.

Getting Ready and Last Day of Christmas.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

With everything we went through yesterday and the early hour we had gotten up Kathy was in bed asleep long before I posted the blog. Myself I tossed and turned and spent much of the night catching up on reading the blogs that I’d not read yesterday. I glanced outside in the direction of the parking lot and the sight of what was happening brought a smile to my face because I knew how Kathy would react. I finally did manage to fall back to sleep. 

When we finally woke moments before 8:00 Kathy was feeling well rested and as I made the bed she started opening the curtains and was shocked to see the whitened landscape I’d seen earlier in the night. Continuing our quest of finishing leftovers and emptying partial containers this morning’s breakfast helped us accomplish that task. We also took the time to finish our coffees while doing our morning computer reading. 

By 10:00 we were on our way out to the storage yard where the trailer is parked. Someone else was not having such a good day as we past this burnt out SUV that was on the Expressway. 

After I loaded things inside Kathy had more clothes to pack and dry foods to store. I was busy laying around under the trailer in an attempt at getting the new access door mounted to seal our tanks from the freezing temperatures unfortunately because of the cold temps and the blowing snow I was froze before I could complete the job. I’ll have to do it somewhere down the road where it is warmer but I did get the back of the truck organized and the debris brush installed. 

More room in the garage for everyone and toasty with the wood fire.
Back at the apartment a large bowl of Chicken noodle soup helped to take some of the chill out of our cold bodies. Kathy decided now she needed a Snap to tide her over until later tonight. Since I was laying on the ground a warm shower finished the warming process the soup had started.

Later this afternoon we traveled back to Kevin and Melissa’s out in Amherstburg where we again celebrated Christmas dinner. Besides this was only our seventh day of celebrating the occasion with friends, relatives and our blended family. Karen and Greg and all the kids were there so again that feeling of closeness that family always brings was accomplished and it was another day of feasting.

With hugs and kisses and wishes of safe travels extended Kathy and I headed for home with the hope of getting a good night’s sleep before our early departure in the morning. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Wishing You Were Here Removing Your Postcard

 I know you had a wonderful time in Rome/Greece/Spain/London/Whereveristan, and I know it made you smile sending us that postcard from there while we were stuck here at the office, but we don't need the reminder of your wonderful trip on the front of the refrigerator for months after you're back.

The Office Refrigerator,


  1. Good thoughts of you two this morning as you embark on your journey.

    Happy and Safe Travels.
