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 Things Done With Fall Weather, A Quick Errand and A Fun Visit Sharing Advice.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Last night when we went to bed we allowed for cooler temperatures by keeping the Bedcover on for extra warmth. The 48 F (9 C) also kept us under the covers but with the sound of the forecasted Rain hitting on the roof in the early morning hours we were done. Done in the sense that the sound no longer lulls just Kathy but the both of us into an even deeper sleep. We didn’t wake up until after 9:30 this morning and the Rain was still coming down steady. 
At 9:30 this morning.
It was definitely a double Coffee day for the both of us trying to get the chill out of our bodies. By 11:00 I was changing the Bed Sheets to our warmer Winter Sheets we got last winter. Once the bed was made it was time to sort the rest of the Laundry. 

Still feeling chilled Kathy decided a nice hot bowl of Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup along with a half a Turkey Salad Sandwich would help and it did.

By 12:30 I was at the Park Laundry Room where I was in for a huge surprise. It seems that everyone thought that since they couldn’t be outside in this Cold Windy Wet Day this would be the perfect time to do laundry. One woman said it was the same way when she arrived two hours earlier. Bit by bit everyone got their laundry loaded as the machines became available. And as some were finishing their laundry others were coming in for the late afternoon washing. 

It was nearly 4:30 when I got back Home because I had done extra loads today and Kathy was already getting things ready for supper. While I started unpacking the folded Clothes, Linens and Towels Kathy was calling me to eat. We had Baked Beans and Sausage on a single Toast along with Fruit as well as a Butter Tart for dessert. 
At 5:15 this evening
It was after 5:00 when we left to go to Amherstburg. When we were in town yesterday I’d forgot to drop off a Prescription at the Pharma Choice Pharmacy. The only problem was that we had to get there before they closed at 6:00 so that was our first stop. We arrived with twenty minutes to spare. Explaining that I don’t need the Antibiotics until we get the rest of our Medications at the end of the month seemed to confuse the clerk. When I repeated the same instructions stating that it is for when we head south then she understood. 

We arrived at our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa’s home for our weekly visit before 6:00. The rain had slowed to a drizzle but there was still a chill in the air. Our visit surrounded ideas of how to do different things with their new Travel Trailer. Being they are Newbies to RVing they are needing as much advice as we can give them. We still had plenty of other things to talk about and one just happened to be that in Three Weeks we will be in the U.S. heading towards the southwest. After plying us with lots of Hot Tea and snacks while we were there Melissa sent us on our way with Ziploc Bag of Frozen Rhubarb from a package that she recently purchased at The Wholesale Club. She said the package was way too big for them and she knows we love making different things with Rhubarb. Thank You Melissa and Kevin we’ll make certain it doesn’t go to waste.

When we got Home we had to cycle the furnace to take the dampness out of the 48 F (9 C) air. We are definitely getting Fall Weather. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

You Might Be a Redneck If

You win the lottery in the morning

and are in jail by nightfall.


  1. I think it's FALL! Yay! A little cooler where you are though.

  2. Are you going to tour the sights on the way south?

  3. The weather is starting to let us know up this way it is fall, also. Fingers crossed we all make it out of here before a freeze.
