It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. 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" to follow our dreams.

Getting Caught Up and Making Another Stir Fry.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

We were both up and about by 8:00 this morning watching the Golfers enjoying the sunshine. We also had a chuckle when we watched a couple of Birds sitting on the edging to our grass. What was funny was that they sat there for nearly ten minutes while other birds came and went. There were even people walking their dogs past our site but those two Birds just sat there as if they were taking a break. 

While enjoying our Coffee/Tea at the Computers this morning I was a little upset reading some of the Blogs. It was not the content of the Blogs themselves that upset me but the fact that I had somehow missed a few past postings. As I have often written “If your Blog is on our sidebar and you have a new Post I will read it.” I spent the morning making certain that I had read everyone’s recent Blogs.

My sister had her car transported back to London on a flatbed truck. The officer that attended the accident advised her against driving it on the Highway. She fortunately has C.A.A. Plus that covers for that kind of transportation. Now she can deal directly with her Insurance to get the car fixed where she lives. 

Kathy chose to make Perogies for lunch and Cherry Pie for dessert. They were filling and gave us the energy we needed to accomplish what we needed to today.

Stephanie from Leisure Trailer called telling us that Jayco had E-mailed her to confirm our appointment to repair our Trailer in March. I also informed her of the letter that we were composing for her to forward to the Jayco representative that she has been dealing with. 
I find cubing the meat while it is frozen is easier.
With the Humidex of 106 F (41 C) this afternoon you hardly saw anyone outside let alone on the Golf Course. Because of some of her medical issues Kathy nearly passes out when it is that warm outside so the smart thing was to just stay inside. 
Thin Slices of Vegetables are also finely Chopped.
Around 3:30 I started cubing another Steak and finely chopping Vegetables so that Kathy could work her magic making a wonderful Stir Fry over Rice for our supper. The best part is there are enough leftovers for another meal which is something we don’t mind.

There were a number of Season Premiers for new shows making there debuts tonight on television and the one we really found interesting was “The Good Doctor”. We both enjoyed it and are hoping to see more of it. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Making Wraps, Data Entries and Remounting Our Bicycle Carrier.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Even after going to bed late last night we were both up within minutes of one another around 8:00 this morning. We had breakfast and were soon having our double Coffees while reading at our Computers.

Today was a catch-up day as many of the Blogs that we follow haven’t done so in a while. When I checked the dates of their last posting it was on days when I could only spend the briefest time on the Computer

Attempting to change our eating habits we worked together at making wraps. Kathy mixed the Salad Mixture while I chopped the strips of Bacon and cubed the Havarti Cheese. After getting as much as possible in the wraps themselves we each still had a small dish of Salad as a side along with a dish of Strawberry covered Yogurt for dessert.. These are low in Calories and Carbs but high in Protein which gives us enough energy to make it through the day.

After lunch Kathy busied herself organizing receipts from all the purchases such as Food, Groceries, Necessities and Gifts before making Data Entries on our Expenditure Spreadsheet. For anyone that is on a limited or set income that is something they should do as well because it helps to stop overspending. 
The neighbourhood Rabbit have more Clover today.
Since it has been over a week I needed to dump our Waste Tanks this afternoon. I still use the technique that we use when dry camping in the desert. By dumping the Black Tank first then using the Kitchen Grey Tank that is mounted higher in the frame to Backflush the Black Tank. Since the Grey Water is Waste anyways it gets repurposed and helps to clean away any buildup in the Black Tank. The process is repeated until all the Grey Water Has been used.

My next task was to run the Taps and Dies on the Stainless-Steel Nuts and Bolts that were used on our Bicycle Carrier. In all the years in Industry I have never had Stainless Fasteners scale up on the threads like these did being exposed to Road Grime. It was surprising to see the scaling on the Picnic Table after I had cleaned those pieces up and how much easier it was to connect them together. 
I don't watch you when you're eating.
With the outside Humidex reaching 100 F (38 C) this afternoon I took a short break inside to cool off and to get more water. I also had to make an adjustment on the Excel program for Kathy. Once in a while one of the Functions in a cell decides it wants to do something different then it was programmed to do so it’s a quick fix.

While Kathy continued making the entries I started reinstalling the mounting brackets for the Bicycle Carrier on the rear Bumper. This allowed me to better see what kind of modification will need to be made to carry our new Tandem Bicycle that does not fold like the one that got damaged last winter. 
We each had a half of the Acorn Squash
and shared the Spare Ribs as well.
Even though I was keeping Hydrated it just seemed I was getting disoriented by the heat so I called it a day after 4:30. Inside Kathy had gotten things out of the Fridge and Freezer for supper but had me wait until after 5:00 to start grilling them. For supper we had Spare Ribs along with an Acorn Squash.

With the time before we head south for the winter slowly disappearing we’ll see what we can do tomorrow at getting ourselves ready. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
