Having left our Blue Flame Heater on its very lowest setting before going to bed last night I was a little concerned to be seeing my breathe inside the Trailer when I got up this morning. As soon as I saw the Pilot Light was out on the Heater I knew what the problem was as it has happen before. After quickly getting dressed I headed out to open the valve on the Second Propane Tank. I went back inside and had the Heater going at a slightly raised setting in no time.
We had another Lite-Breakfast before taking our Coffees over to the Computers. Between reading different things we discussed what we needed to do today as there is a lot of Cold Wet Weather heading our way.
By 10:00 we had finished our Second Cup and were heading outside to pack away more of our belongings. Some will take up residence in our Storage Unit until we get our Trailer back from the Jayco Factory again in the later part of spring. The rest will find its way to our Balcony as well as inside the Apartment itself.
It was nearly noon by the time I had secured everything on this load on the Truck. That meant we had already worked off our Lite Breakfast and with more work to do at the Storage Unit we ate a more filling lunch. On Tuesday Kathy had been cooking our supper in the Crock Pot when Tim arrived with the Snowmobile Trailer to move our Garden Shed. For lunch we had Chicken, Potatoes and Carrots topped off with a Yogurt Cup for dessert.
It didn’t take long to get to Guardian Storage in Windsor because most people were at work. We spent a bit of time rearranging things and unloading the Truck. What we did today will make things much easier when it’s time to move things into the Apartment. At one point I had Kathy move the Truck and just as she was about to pull ahead a Car pulled in front of her and stopped. Finally she had to lay on the Horn because the guy was Texting on his phone and hadn’t seen the truck.
We stopped at the Real Canadian Superstore again today. We needed a few more ingredients for what we’ll be bringing to the Halloween Party tomorrow when Kathy spotted a Cupcake Cake for the occasion. That along with a few other things that were not on our Shopping List made their way Home with us.
At Home we had phone message to call Ana the Apartment Manager. She knows we are living in our RV and our urgency to get out of the cold. The old tenant is moving out early and once she’s certain it is in move in condition we might be able to start bringing our things in on Wednesday.
After getting everything put away Kathy served Greek Macaroni Salad along with Green Beans to go with the Half Slab of Spare Ribs that we picked up at the Deli Counter at the grocery store. There was so much meat on those ribs we should have saved some because we were both stuffed when we finished. No dessert was served.
Since it was only 4:30 and we didn’t want anything to happen to the Halloween Cake we thought that we would deliver it along with our trees to Amherstburg. Kevin had a laugh at the Cupcake Cake thinking it was cute. The Trees we plan on having on our Balcony but until we are moved in they’ll stand in front of our Garden Shed. After carrying the first one and finding out just how heavy it was I used the Utility Cart to move the second one.
On the way back to McGregor we were surprised to see not only the Trolley that visits the Local Wine Makers but Birds. There were Thousands filling the sky almost like the Alfred Hitchcock movie. It appears that they will soon be heading South as well.
All those specks in the sky are Birds.
After getting the Dishes cleaned up we settled in at our Computers. It was barely 8:00 when we were both having trouble keeping our eyes open. The low tonight is supposed to be the Freezing Mark. We’ve still got a lot to do before the end of the month. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Witty Words of Wisdom:

Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't.


  1. I certainly know what you mean about running out of propane in the middle of the night. I sure wish there was an accurate gauge for propane tanks so we could enjoy a good nights sleep in warmth.
    Nice to hear you might get into the apartment early.

  2. It will be good to get in the apartment and settled in. Those ribs sure look delicious.

  3. I'm glad your apartment will be ready early. It sounds like it's getting too chilly for an RV. Love the cupcake cake!!

  4. love the cake! You two are certainly keeping busy! Hoping you'll enjoy your new place!

  5. Hope you'll be able to move in early. Cute cake!
