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.

Cold Weather Day, More Plans Being Researched and Things Crossed Off The To-Do List.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

After taking the chill out of the trailer by cycling the Furnace we shut it off and climbed between our Winter Bedsheets last night. Even with the 37 F (3 C) outside temperatures we were so comfortable the next thing we knew it was 8:00 in the morning. There was a difference when I started opening the Window Shades that we didn’t have for the last few days, the Sun was shining brightly.

Looking outside while eating there were plenty of eager walkers out getting their exercise in and others playing Golf on the course. They all had something in common, they were wearing Jackets and some even had Gloves on.

We spent most of the morning doing inside chores as well as reading on the Computers before I headed outside to start getting things ready for my outside Project. That meant gathering Tools, Fasteners and bringing my Coveralls inside from the basement to warm up. 
Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup along with
a half Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Pickle.
By then Kathy had started simmering the very last of the Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup on the stove. She also wanted to make a Grilled Cheese Sandwich for us to share. I helped by slicing the cheese while she buttered the bread. It tasted wonderful and the Hot Soup helped to get the chill out of both our bodies.

Once lunch was over Kathy pulled out her Books and got on her Computer to see what things of interest we’ll be able to see when we start our southwest migration in just over Two Weeks. We set the course last week but it could be changed if Kathy finds something of interest. Lots of these places we have heard of by reading other RVer’s Blogs. She then calculates Travel Time according to the route, places to sleep, where we’ll buy our Fuel and buy our Groceries. She has often had complete Itineraries made only to see something else more appealing causing her to change our plans yet another time. I get to see the finished results a couple of days before we leave. 
RV Scissor Jack installed to remove bounce in Suspension when parked.
This afternoon I needed to wear a warm Hoodie under my Coveralls because even though the Sun was out and there was barely any Wind the outside temperature only topped out at 55 F (13 C). Having drilled Pilot Holes for the RV Scissor Jacks over a week ago. Today I increased the hole size and then I had to tap the holes since there is no way to put Nuts on most of the Bolts. This was all done while laying on an old rug that was on the Cold Ground. It took quite a bit of time but the Scissor Jacks are now mounted under our Trailer. I also have a Long-Handled Magnet that was used to pick up all the metal shavings from the ground.

After a brief rest to stretch my back and put some tools away I adjusted a few other things before I started feeling chilled. Looking around the Sun had slipped behind a bank of Clouds making the temperature change was noticeable. 
Turkey Fettuccini.
Since we are very limited to what Foods we are allowed to bring across the International Border Kathy is working at using up lots of things in the Fridge and Freezer. With that in mind she had me cubing one piece of Turkey as well as chopping Celery and Onions for supper. While she turned that into a delicious Turkey Fettuccini she also had me cleaning and coring a couple of apples which were then turned into Baked Apples for dessert. 
Baked Apple Dessert.
Tomorrow we’ll be off with an early start. We’ve lots of errands and Two very important Visits. All this while the clock is ticking. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Joke of the Day

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
