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.

Dull Day Ends With A Shine.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Kathy woke up this morning feeling totally refreshed but I was dragging my backside due to a mostly wakeful night. The fact that it was raining and there was no sign of the sun in the sky while we had breakfast didn’t help the situation. The only thing that I could do to warm myself ever so slightly was to sit with the electric cube heater blowing on me while I was at the computer.
Mother Robin.
Kathy was once again working on her bookkeeping feeling guilty that she hadn’t kept it up while we had transitioned from the apartment to our trailer. (Like she didn’t have anything else to do!) There were a few bank entries that she couldn’t immediately identify and she didn’t rest until she knew exactly what they were even getting me in to help figure them out.
We figure she was mourning the loss of her babies.
The rain had finally stopped around 11:00 and we had opened the door and some windows as the temperature finally made it close to the sixty-degree mark as I looked outside I saw a strange sight. Calling Kathy over to look out the door there was the mother robin sitting at the base of the tree by our patio. We believe she was in mourning over the loss of her babies that we think were left unattended and were blown out of the nest the other day during high winds landing on the ground where they were picked up by a predator.
This only part of the get together.
After having a wonderful tuna/fruit salad for lunch Kathy was finally ready to start making the final entries onto the spreadsheet in the computer that we use to track our expenditures. Wearing a heavy sweater, I went outside in an attempt at making some kind of accomplishment for the day. It took some time to remove the protective cover off the license plates so that I could add the newly issued tag. Looking around I didn’t feel so out of place as I witnessed golfers on the greens and children visiting relative’s RV’s all wearing heavy jackets due to the chilly north breeze.
Fresh personal pizzas baked in their own wood burning oven.
The line was at least a 45 minute wait.
By the time I finished such a minor chore it was time to start the Weber Q to grill some Johnsonville Brats for supper. Kathy prepped the PC Thin Buns with mustard and sauerkraut which made for a tasty low carb supper. We barely had time to wash the dishes when the 6 o’clock News started which on the weekends is important for us to receive local news.  If we wait for the later news it is broadcast from London a hundred miles away giving us mostly their local news.

The tent on the right was where all the children were playing.
We were just about to head to the computers when the phone rang and it was our son Gary. We knew that he and his family might be in town this weekend. His wife Jen’s uncle Gary (who I went through grade school and high school with and only lived five doors away) was having a family barbecue/get-together and we were being invited. Not having any plans for the evening, we accepted and were soon driving to the west side of Windsor to the party.
Serious Truckin'
We were offered food and drink but declined with thanks. We had a chance to visit with our son and our daughter-in-law Jen but only saw Connor and Haigan for brief moments as they were too busy playing with cousins that were more their age. We heard some encouraging news that they will be moving back to the area this summer giving us a chance to visit with the grands more often. We also visited with Jen’s folks Jack and Sue as well as uncle Gary and Jaqueline. As the sun set and the sound of the music increased, not being party animals we were not the first to leave for Home

Even though the first day of this long weekend didn’t start out the best it ended with a pleasant visit. The weather is supposed to start improving tomorrow so we plan on making good use of it. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Joke Of The Day

 Dijon vu - the same mustard as before.


  1. The long weekends are always fun and busy. We just dress for the weather and enjoy the fresh air, sure feels good.

  2. Glad you enjoyed a spur of the moment party. There will be many of those in your lifestyle.

  3. I see your 'full time RVing' so far is just living in a trailer park. Is that going to be your home base between trips? When do you start your full time travels? Will you travel Canada for 6 months and then the States for 6 months?
    I'm a full time RVer wannabe trying to figure out how to do it as a Canadian. So far we live in our home for 7 months and travel for 5 months.
