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.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

After getting up early this morning to post yesterday’s Blog I still couldn’t get it to upload any Pictures. It was shortly after 8:00 when Kathy joined me downstairs and since I went straight to the Computer she had the chore of making breakfast. We managed to get a bit more reading and Attempted Commenting done before we started working on our own chores. While Kathy went to get changed I managed to create the Spreadsheet for our son Kevin that we didn’t accomplish last night. Working on your own Computer has its advantages. It only took Twenty Minutes to make and test.

Kathy doesn’t always like to cook when we are pressed for time but when she can she will cook meals that only need to be reheated for the next week. By the time I made the Bed and she was already chopping Vegetables and Meat telling me to just get my own chore done.

I try to do the Laundry every week but today was Thirteen Days. It just seemed something would come up in the last week that pushed the Laundry to the back of the line. While I sorted, treated and packed the Laundry, Kathy took a break from her cooking and made us Sandwiches for lunch.

I took the Car over to the Park Laundry Room around 1:00 because Kathy didn’t feel like going outside in the 102 F (39 C) Humidex. I had hoped that others would feel the same because of the extra washing that had to be done. With nobody else in the building I got all the Washers I needed going and was doing Cryptogram Puzzles when another Park Resident came in with the same suspicion that I’d had. By the time I was folding the Clothes from the last Dryer there were Five More People who thought that nobody else would be there.

It was nearly 5:30 when I got Home and started to bring everything in the Trailer. I needed to sit and relax in the Air Conditioning for a few minutes before doing anything else. Kathy had just finished her cooking and had our supper waiting to be heated in the Microwave.

We had Pepper Steak on Rice for supper and it really re-energized us both. Looking in the fridge it is completely full of meals Kathy had made, just waiting to be heated and served. Not wanting to sit too long as soon as we were done eating we unpacked all the Laundry and put it in its storage.

Finally getting back to the Computer the first thing I did was to locate a Free Excel Program that I’ll load on our son Kevin’s Computer along with the Spreadsheet that I created this morning. the next thing I did was try to load pictures on yesterday’s Blog with no luck.

When the Weather improves I’ll start running the new Coaxial Cable even before the fittings for the WeBoost arrive. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.


The World's Great Proverbs

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.


  1. You two just don't like to sit still do you? I know how it is, things will not be taken care of its self.

  2. I'm a cook ahead person too. It's nice to have a fridge and freezer full of ready-to-go meals.

  3. How nice that she cooks ahead like that especially with the hot temps! Nobody wants to cook in the evening for sure! Bet that laundromat was warm with the washers and dryers going, but it's gotta be done once in awhile. Hopefully you can take some time to relax soon!
