Different Kind Of Progress.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Last night we both managed to catch up on some of our lost sleep from the last few days. We even managed to sleep in slightly this morning. I was up opening the drapes by 7:30 and Kathy joined me at the computers shortly afterwards before we had our breakfast. The sun made very brief cameo appearances throughout the day finding the odd hole in a cloud but otherwise it did help to increase the temperature to a comfortable level. What both Kathy and I are a little confused with is that lately when the wind blows from the north we’ve been warming up but if the wind blows from the south it has been extremely cold. I think someone should tell Mother Nature that she’s Directionally Challenged and that the hot and cold should be coming from the other way. 
This is all there is this year.
Once breakfast was over Kathy still had more to do online so I started taking stock of our prescription medications and vitamins that we have on hand. We are keeping this routine going so we don’t go through the mess we did the first year we headed south for the winter. We accomplished a number of other things around the apartment and one of those things was taking pictures. Yesterday someone mentioned how disappointed they were that I haven’t been posting pictures of the Christmas Gifts we give to our family. First the computer just would not upload pictures to the blog. Next we didn’t finish our shopping until the middle of November this year compared to the normal middle of August. Next year with us going Fulltime we’ll change our approach to Christmas shopping entirely. 
Our Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.
Around 2:00 we headed over to the nearby Shoppers Drug Mart where I summited a list of prescription meds for refill that we normally take with us. We also spent a little time looking for a few health snacks that Kathy would later say didn’t taste anywhere near the real thing. As for the vitamins on my list if they are not on sale which they weren’t at this store we don’t buy them. 
More Christmas lights from last night.
 Since our daughter had to work late tonight at the University of Windsor she had called to ask if we could pick Tyler up at his high school after classes with his hockey equipment so we did. Luckily he is all recovered from the flu he had last week so we had a chance to visit with him on the way home.

Once Tyler was home we drove to another nearby Shoppers Drug Mart so that I could look for the vitamins we needed. This store had all their nutritional supplements on sale and the generic house brand was thirty percent less than the name brand as well. Even though this store falls under the same franchise it is independently owned and operated so it has more sales than the other store. 

We managed to get more things checked off our to do list once we got back to the apartment. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

    From someone who full-time in the motorhome for four years, you may be surprised at how much more space you have then what you might think. I was able to do a lot of Christmas shopping. An idea you might think about is doing shopping and mailing those packages to one of your children and then when you return to the area for your Christmas visit you can wrap them. I mailed a box to my dad's house and wrapped them when I arrived a few days before Christmas. Just a suggestion.

  2. We celebrate Christmas and Thanksgiving together before we head south for the winter Christmas day usually a meal somewhere in a campground, all done then. No more gifts other than for the Gands...
