No List. Oops!!

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

With the increased cold north winds blowing through our area last night, we reluctantly had to sleep with the windows closed again. It was however cool enough that when we finally woke up this morning we felt totally refreshed. Compared to last Saturday when it was needed you’d have thought that the Air Conditioner had been on most of the night. 
We did manage to get a few things accomplished besides breakfast and our morning reading. Kathy was amazed how well the new bedspread looked and fit on our bed. The winter bed cover was too big and bulky while the original was too small and lightweight but this one was just right. It will also be easier to handle and is machine washable.  

The sun was shining brightly this morning but the temperatures were in the low fifties and inside the trailer almost felt like we were inside an icebox. Kathy busied herself logging the purchases that we’d made yesterday onto the spreadsheets for our expenditures, to who the early Christmas gifts were going and then actually wrapping those gifts. 
After having a wonderful Chicken Fruit Salad that Kathy made for lunch we headed to Windsor with a number of things we wanted to do. Heading up Walker Road we notice that the sun had disappeared behind a wall of clouds and the wind had increased. Stepping out of the car was starting to feel like late fall rather than late spring. Our first stop was at the Regional Post Office Processing Plant where we were able to drop off some mail. By doing that it guarantees that it will be on its way tomorrow. 

Our next stop was at Guardian Storage where we collected our mail before going to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. There we had lots to store including the freshly wrapped Christmas Gifts. 
We were planning on stopping for gas but as we were leaving the storage yard the stupid engine light came on. After filling the tank with gas I checked the oil level and found the oil down slightly but looking around outside and in the station they carry no oil so we planned on getting that at Canadian Tire. 

Last year when I worked at connecting the Solar Panels on the trailer I found cracks in the Junction-box mounted on the roof. I also noticed that it was more difficult connecting the wires than I had planned because I’d used a small box. So we made a quick stop at Electrozad where I got a slightly larger and better built Junction-box for the trailer. It should make any additional connections easy to make. 
A quick stop at the Credit Union for some unforeseen banking before we stopped at the Zehrs grocery store for more salad and food stocks. 

Next we picked up extra oil at Canadian Tire but even after adding more oil than was required the engine light remained on. We’ll have to get the code checked out.  
Cooler temperatures have helped the plants.
It was now past 5:00 so we stopped at Dairy Queen where we each enjoyed one of their value meals for supper. 

We just arrived Home and unloaded the car when the 6 o’clock News started. The adage no news is good news holds true. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much good news this evening but the sun did come out for a while. 
We’ve mentioned in the past that we like to use lists so that when we are running errands or going shopping we don’t miss anything. Today we didn’t use a list we forgot it and guess what? The biggest reason we needed to go to the storage yard for was forgotten. Oops!!! Guess where we’ll be going later this week? Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time. 


Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes 

The Perfect Office Assistant  

Assistant (to boss, who's just hit his golf ball through his window): I ordered your wife's anniversary gift, got the S.E.C. investigation postponed, and that slice is due to your hands being turned too far to the left.

  1. If your forget your list you will forget something.

  2. Good catch on the junction box cracking. Water and electricity don't mix too well... ;c)

  3. I have an ipod touch, I put the app called myShopl, my shopping list on the ipod. It is amazing, you can create a list for many stores so you never forget a thing. Best of all it is free.
