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.

Chore, Good Food, Nice Visit and Some Replies.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

We were both up at a decent hour this morning after having been lulled to sleep by the falling Rain throughout the night. I would later check our Rain Gauge to find that we had accumulated another 3/8 of an Inch of water from the sky.

Once breakfast was over we took our Coffees over to the Computers. Checking all the correspondents I’d received it wasn’t long before I started with other chores.

When you buy new Bedding the Manufacture recommends they be washed before using them so that’s what I planned on doing. Kathy wanted Fresh Sheets on our bed, so she recommended I wash the ones on our bed as well.

By 10:00 I was headed over to the Park Laundry Room. I only needed Two Washers but had to take One on each side of the room. There was no way that I was leaving Three Sets of Bamboo Sheets unattended which was a good thing when they were in the Dryers. Since these machines have smaller sized drums I needed to untangle the Balled-Up Sheets a number of times, so that everything would dry. With everything all folded I was finally back Home by 12:30.

As soon as Kathy heard me arrive she finished prepping lunch. We had Acorn Squash, Broasted Chicken, Cottage Cheese and Strawberry Shortcake for dessert.

 Looking outside the Clouds were looking very threatening. Once I’d eaten I headed outside to do a few chores there.

Having added water down the Vent Stack on Monday to clear the blockage I still needed to drain our Waste Tanks today. Using my usual method of cleaning out the Black Tank I was very happy to see clear water coming out when I finally used the Flush in it.

Inside the Trailer after washing up I spent time cutting up a Pineapple, then I did the same thing to the second Celery Root that we had purchased. With all that done it was time to take out the Trash but I cheated by just putting it in the back of the Truck so it could be dealt with later.

I made up the Bed with Fresh Sheets while Kathy was doing her thing boiling the Celery Root to soften it up. When those chores were done we both sat for a short while and got caught up on some Blog Reading. It was barely 4:00 when Kathy started breading and frying the Celery Root. That was the only thing we ate for our supper and there are only a few pieces that were put aside for a snack.

Shortly after 5:00 we were out the door. Using the Truck for the first time in over a week we knew that it needed exercise so we dropped off the Trash before heading towards Amherstburg.

Our first stop was Pharma Choice drug store. Last week while I was counting all the pills one container came up short. Our former Pharmacy was always doing that so that was why I started counting all our meds. This was the first time this happened and when I called and spoke to Steve, he verified that it was a New Assistant that had filled the order. They had the Makeup Pills waiting for me when we arrived.

Our next stop was to visit with our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa. We had fun listening to their description of how her parents were slowly getting used to Apartment Living after having owned their House for over Fifty Years. Melissa often serves us hot Tea and small snacks. I don’t know what was happening but I managed to spilled my Tea twice tonight and I normally never do it.

Just as we were getting ready to head for Home it started raining just enough that we had to run the wipers all the way to the Park. Checking my E-Mail this evening we have a few people interested in the unit we are advertising on Kijiji. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
