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.

Getting More Things Ready.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

After having an enjoyable Halloween Party at our son and daughter-in-law’s house last night we felt worn out which meant we had no problems falling asleep once we got between the bedcovers. We also felt a little overfed which was no-one else’s fault but our own. With our not having eaten supper before going and sampling every dish available it didn’t take long before we had over eaten.

I finally just got up and headed to the Computer around 7:30 this morning because I was tired of staring at the ceiling instead of sleeping. I’d finished most of my morning reading by the time Kathy woke up just before 9:00. Even though the temperature hit the Freezing Mark it was when Kathy got up that I turned the Furnace on to take the chill out of the air. With neither of us were feeling the least bit hungry so we simply had our Coffee/Tea as we continued reading at our Computers. I also took the time to start charging our TracFones, Verizon MiFi and our Walkie Talkies so they’ll be charged up for Wednesday morning. Even with the temperature hoovering just above the Freezing Mark we were making plans to work outside together. 
Bacon, Eggs and Toast for Brunch
Still not feeling hungry but starting to feel lightheaded around 11:00 we decided to have Brunch before going outside. As many restaurants are now saying you can have breakfast at any time of day or night so that’s what we did. Using up more of the Bacon that we had grilled on our Weber from in our Freezer along with Eggs from the Fridge with Toast and topped off Coffee it was just enough to make us feel comfortable. By the time we finished our Coffees our feeling of being lightheaded had disappeared.

Kathy joined me outside so we could wrap the Cedar Trees on our site with netting. If this area is hit with any Heavy Snowfall while we are away the netting will hold the branches together so there will be no damage to the Trees. Installing the netting is not an easy task and Two Sets of Hands are better then One. It still took the two of us nearly Four Hours to wrap the dozen Cedars on our site and even though we had dressed for the cool temperatures we were still chilled to the bone.

Just before 5:00 we again teamed up to cook supper. Kathy wanted to Sautee up some Potatoes, Onion and Brussels Sprouts so I manned the Chopping Board. Once that was ready Kathy showed me how to bread Fish while she cooked them in the Frying Pan. Our neighbour Ted had given us some frozen Perch last spring hat he had caught last winter and since we can’t bring it across the International Border into the US we did the next best thing. Everything tasted wonderful and there is enough cooked Perch leftover for lunch tomorrow.

The hours are counting down and we still have plenty to do before we leave. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

  1. Even RV sites require winter maintenance. Glad you are getting it done so you can find warmer weather.

  2. Was that a "Food Coma" or a "Candy Coma" after that Halloween party? ;c)

  3. Many people wish to be in your shoes at this time of year and were able to head south. Hope you have a good start to your travels and all with go as per plan. Of course your faithful readers (us) will follow along and look forward to your travel log. All the best!

  4. I am guessing you are pretty close to being ready to pull up stakes and be on your way.

    No pictures of you and Kathy in your costumes..:(

  5. Wishing you safe travels. I will be heading out for just a few days tomorrow.
