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.

High Winds With Rain, Getting Closer and Getting Things Done.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

When I woke up this morning and saw a few Golfers out on the course I was hoping the Weather Guessers had made a mistake in their forecast. Minutes later as I started making breakfast I realized that they were just addicted to the game because that was when it started raining.

We managed to enjoy our Coffee/Tea and get caught up on our morning reading at the Computers. Some of the Blogs we were reading made us feel like we were being left behind as we read that more of our Canadian Snowbirding Friends had already flown the coop and were now South of the Border. That feeling only lasted seconds when we realized that our time here at the Park is also growing short and is filled with lots of things that will keep us busy.

We managed to get our inside chores completed while listening to the sound of the Rain tapping away on our roof. While Kathy readied the Soup and Open-Faced Grilled Cheese, I was busy sorting the laundry. Lunch tasted wonderful and even helped to warm us slightly from the dampness in the air. 

When I arrived at the Park Laundry Room every machine was available for me to use. By the time the washers had finished their Final Spin Cycle I’d managed to complete a couple of Cryptograms as a way of passing time. While moving things from the Washers to the Dryers I removed the Delicates that can’t be put in the Dryers. With the last load going I walked back Home in the lite Drizzle to hang things up.

They say timing is everything and just as I walking in the door Kathy was having a major issue with the Printer. She was trying to print out “Attractions To See In Arizona” but the printer was trying to pull Four to Five sheets of paper at a time and jammed up. While I got the Printer to work the way it was supposed to Kathy hung up the Delicates. By the time I was ready to head back to the Park Laundry Room the Rain was really coming down.

Luckily my Raincoat kept me and the Folded Laundry dry when I got back Home shortly after 4:00. By the time the Laundry was put away Kathy was ready to make supper. Knowing we had food that had to be used before we cross the International Border into the U.S. Kathy decided we’d have Bacon and Eggs. Even the Nutritionist realize that you can eat breakfast at any time of the day. It was more then enough to eat when you aren’t overly active and later we topped it off with our Coffees while we sat at the Computers

The Wind has picked up and the Rain is continuing to fall. The Weather Guessers are warning us about Winds that could exceed 50 MPH tomorrow. Glad we aren’t on the road yet and hoping that anyone driving under these conditions can find someplace safe to sit it out. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. How much longer until you guys head down? I'm sure you've written it I just can't remember.

  2. By time you reach the Southwest it should be cooler, we hope.
