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.

Slowed Down But Still Doing.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After having a somewhat restful night we woke to another cloud covered rainy morning. Yes the weather guessers actually got that one right. Fortunately the rain had stopped before we woke up but it added to the dreary appearance of the day. 

After having our breakfast we sat at the computers getting caught up on our E-mails and blog reading. I was pleased to read a number of comments from people that said they used the same method to create their own blogs. Simply composing it on a Word document then Copying and Pasting it on Blogger and uploading the pictures afterwards. It really is not that much of a problem as long as you don’t get a virus that will stop you from posting pictures like we recently had. 

Another question that was asked was what type of program that I use to create the calendar I wrote about in yesterday’s post. Microsoft Excel! Someone a long time ago told me you could make all kinds of things using Excel besides spreadsheets. I’ve since used it for calendars, countdown calendars for our grandchildren, business cards, greeting cards for any kind of personal greeting you can think of and as a file for things such as E-mail addresses and blog URL that when pressed will connect to those sites. Like setting a blog it will take a little time to set up but then it’s easy to copy. 

With the weather continuing to be gloomy outside Kathy kept doing further research for our southwest trip next fall. When we move into the trailer next spring I’ll be giving up my desktop computer and the printers that are connected to it. Since I make our blogger contact cards and am very familiar with the printers that I’ll soon be giving up I decided to print a batch of new cards but there’s a problem. The problem is when we start Fulltiming our address will no longer be the town of Tecumseh but where-ever in Ontario we’ll be stopping. What that meant was creating another master copy which somehow I managed to delete the original from the computer. Unfortunately it is time consuming and tedious using Adobe photo editing to clean it up. I might have it finished in a day or two. 

Even though it was cloudy all day the outside temperature was comfortable so we again took advantage of that to grill a pizza on our Weber Q for supper. The weather guessers informed us tonight that for the second day in a row we broke old temperature records by hitting 61 F (16 C). Unfortunately the temps will start sliding tomorrow throughout the week and be in the freezing zone before the weekend. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

The World's Great Proverbs

It's too late to shut the stable door after the horse has bolted.


  1. Your home address should be where your mail goes.

  2. We use a company for our mail that scans the envelopes and e-mails them daily. We can then choose to shred, forward it to us or open it and scan and then e-mail the scan.

  3. Some years ago when I created our boat cards on my computer I was proud of my creation, but when I was ready to print them, the cost of the color ink cartridges and the business card stationary made me think twice of printing them by the dozen or so. In addition, we discovered that the ink from the printer became gummy on the boat cards after a while and the cards would stick together. Then, I discovered It’s an online printing company. You can use your already designed business/RV card or use one of their formats, or create in a very simple and easy to do process a fantastic looking card. The prices are super cheap and we got the cards 2 days after submitting my order.
    On a side note, as Canadians we cannot use these great mail forwarding services in the USA as our home address, simply because our driver’s license address is our home address etc., but there are other options we can use here.

  4. I've never tried any way to do the blog and then paste. I am not real tech savvy. And unlike you, I only use EXCEL for spreadsheets. Again, not too savvy.
