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.

Stretching It.

Our Location today is Moore Haven, Florida, U.S.A.

We were both tired enough from all our chores yesterday that we were in bed by 10:30 last night and didn’t wake up until nearly 8:00 this morning. The cooler overcast skies might have had something to do with that making it so we didn’t want to get out of a warm cozy bed.  We enjoyed our breakfast before checking the computers to catch up on our reading. 

By 9:30 Kathy was busy making a single batch of her Honey Garlic Chicken Wings in the slow cooker for tonight’s supper. I made up the bed before dressing to go outside to exercise. Christmas Eve was the last time that I had been able to exercise and I was really starting to feel the effects of not working out. 

I started by riding my bicycle around the RV park and the surrounding neighborhood stopping only a couple of times to drink the water that I’d brought along. Forty-five minutes and ten miles later I returned to the trailer where Kathy had just finished getting the slow cooker going and prepared a vegetable salad that we’d have later with our lunch. She came outside to sit and read on our patio while I used my dumbbells and barbell that I carry in the trailer to continue my workout for another hour. By the time I finished Kathy noted that it was already time to have lunch so we headed in to enjoy her salad and a sandwich. 

We spent most of the afternoon researching store locations in Fort Myers where we plan on making a four stop run this coming Friday. Of course when I tried to print it out I had to save it as a PDF then convert it to a word document before I could make it print. 

Around 2:00 we started making our second dish for tonight which was Fried Wantons. Kathy manned the frying pan while I sugar coated them with icing sugar. Because of our limited counter space our multi-purpose water cart helped give us the extra space we needed to get the job done. Once we were finished we each had to sample one for Quality Control purposes of course. 
Shortly before 6:00 we walked over to the Clubhouse where there was a potluck dinner being held. When Kathy had signed up there had only been a dozen people to say they were bringing something but there were many who didn’t sign up and just brought something to feed the masses. Kathy said if she had known more people were coming she’d have doubled what we brought. Sadly there were no leftovers for us to bring back to the trailer. 

Since this is considered the winter season that means there is also Karaoke on Tuesday nights. Some of the folks that were brave enough to sing we recognized from our visit here last year along with many newcomers. The crowd would soon start to thin out after 8:30 but there was fun had by all. 

We are expecting something in the mail tomorrow and if that arrives early we’ll have a full day ahead of us. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

    Looks like lots of people participated in Karaoke. That is always a fun time.
