Still Busy

In my last posting, I forgot to mention that I went to Grandson #4's hockey game. On his first shift on the ice, he got a breakaway on scored his first goal. He repeated a goal on his second shift. He ended up having 3 goals. His mom said in a Facebook message that she thought he was showing off to me. That could be, as it is the first game I have seen him play since October. But he is an awesome player. George was always taking pictures of his games. We were only able to see them in October and sometimes in April when we got back. We always made a point to see the games. This game was the first game that was during the day. All the other games were at night and I'm not fond of travelling at night.

This past Monday I went out to the RV. It was such a nice sunny day that I didn't want to miss out on being outside. I just couldn't stay in Stratford and not go outside. I started going through compartments. First to see what would stay and what would go. I was able to take some stuff out and store it in my brothers quonset hut to be dealt with later. Whatever is in the electric and wet bay are staying with the RV. I was able to through all the compartments on the driver's side. The only thing they need now is to be cleaned. On the passenger side I cleaned out one compartment. The balance will wait until good weather happens. One of the compartments has a tool box that there is no way I would even attempt to lift as I know it is heavy.

While at the RV, I also was inside and removed items that we didn't need when we moved into the apartment. So, the inside is almost empty and some of what remains, will also remain with the coach.

The last couple of days, I have been getting organized to do our taxes. They are basically ready to file except there is at least 1 piece of paper that I made need for Income Tax 2019. I get mail here at the apartment as well as the previous address. I'm not in a hurry to file the taxes as I want to make sure I have everything I need. In previous years, I didn't file our Income Taxes until mid April anyway.

I have been waiting for the following to be completed. I found the original picture that appears on the blog and had it printed. I then went to Michael's to have them frame it in a frame I got inexpensively. It took 2 weeks for to get a mat and be then framed.

They did a good job
Now it just needs to go up on the wall.

A comment was made on the blog about me buying something smaller that I could handle. Unfortunately, at this point my RV'ing days are over. I'm not sure I would be comfortable travelling by myself, keeping 2 vehicles and setting up a smaller RV even though George taught how to do everything with the RV. I believe he knew that I wouldn't be RV'ing anymore. But that doesn't mean that I won't travel. That day will come. For now, I know I can always go to Rock Glen Family Resort and rent a cabin. That is the my current plan.

Also a comment about a sewing machine. My mother taught my sister and myself to sew. We always had a sewing machine at home. I was never as good as my mother but I did learn the basics. A sewing machine might come in handy but for now I think I will just borrow my sister-in-laws. I actually saw a small one at Value Village here in town that I almost bought. But, I decide to leave it as I don't have any sewing projects in mind and I would also have to find a place for it.

So far, my cooking disaster hasn't been repeated. Today, I started a beef roast in the original slow cooker. I've been smelling it all day and it is up to temperature. Good thing for Google to let me know what things should be cooked to. As I was writing this my potatoes boiled over and made a slight mess of the glass top. Crap, something to clean. I guess I can also do work make projects.

Fall apart beef

Yummy supper
Thanks for all you comments in the previous blogs.


Going forward, day by day.
