This morning started off in a rush when I woke up my clock showed it was 7:00 a.m. and it was really 6:00 a.m. because time change. I did not realize it. Anyways I rushed downstairs to make my weekly phone call with my cousin Jackie and his wife Linda. Then I looked at my phone and it said 6:00 a.m. then I looked at another digital device I have and it said 6:00 a.m. too. I had an hour to wait. Research time! We started talking just about every Sunday starting a few years ago when I was going through a very trying time in my life. They were my rocks. Jackie and Linda also view things differently than me and we’ve been discussing the the great loop. Plus they have helped with research. Jack and Linda come up with a lot of good thoughts in regards of things I need to think about. Today we talked about my current mindset in regards to having certain things or destinations that I want to go. Instead of a time frame of needing to be at such and such a place at such and such a time. They thought that was a great idea. We also talked about my thoughts in regards to leaving Lake Michigan area from either the Green Bay side or the East side in September. Jackie and Linda lived in Chicago for many years and went to the Bears games down on the lakefront. They informed me that September could be pretty dicey on the Lake Michigan and it can get cold and storms can roll in. So I need to rethink leaving the great lakes in September. Maybe I might leave earlier and not go as far as the gulf for the next leg. Store my boat somewhere down in Kentucky or someplace like that.
One of the exciting things about this adventure is that it keeps changing and there’s a lot of unknowns.
Today my goal was to put together my video on my investigation for fuel use. It didn’t quite work out that way. When I started to work on it in Canva, on my new laptop, I discovered I didn’t have the necessary documents downloaded to dropbox. Then, one of the families I’m working with, with my real estate career, needed to change what they were searching for and they needed me to readjust what I was sending them. So the research and subsequent screening, than sending properties took a significant amount of my day. I didn’t get back to working on my video until late in the afternoon, actually early evening. When I did get back to it I knew I needed to download, or really transfer, the information from Google Docs over to dropbox. During that process I discovered I had the Dropbox for the real estate on my phone so I needed to get it off and then load up the new Dropbox. By the time I got done transferring everything over it was time to hit the hay and go to bed.
Other things that I did today was; I learned how to put links in my blog, researched different types of electric scooters, inflatable kayaks, and surge protectors.
Pretty good day all in all.
May all your Seas be calm
