It's about time.

I'm sure there are many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your children. Buying a home and paying all the bills that are related to being homeowners and parents.
Our family has grown up and started families of their own. We're now retired and don't need a big home with all its work and expenses. We've downsized our belongings, sold our house, and upgraded our trailer.
Now it's time to follow our dreams.

What about you? Wouldn't you say, "It's about time".

Resolving Problems.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Last night for some unknown reason I just couldn’t fall into a restful sleep even though we were sleeping with the bedroom window open. Finally after only attaining a number of short naps throughout the night around 6:00 this morning I went to sit in the living room. Surprisingly I was still sitting straight in the chair when Kathy came into the room just before 8:00. 

Once we’d had breakfast and completed our morning reading on the computers we decided to walk the two blocks to the Shoppers Drug Mart. We needed to pick up a few items as well as some prescriptions that had been called in the other day. When we got to the pharmacy they had everything ready except the one medication Kathy can never go without. They said they would try to contact Kathy’s doctor and would let us know when the meds were ready. 

We walked back to the apartment and the first thing Kathy did was call her doctor’s office. She found out her doctor is away this week but once the receptionist heard of the problem she said she’d call it in immediately. We haven’t heard from the drug store as of this writing so I’ll be back there tomorrow. 

After lunch Kathy was busy dusting and vacuuming around the apartment as well as cooking and baking. I was outside working on an electrical problem on the truck. I did manage to find the problem as a circuit breaker that had failed but after replacing it on the second test the system once again shut down. It was already past 5:00 so I closed up shop for the day.
Earlier we had talked about what we’d have for supper and Kathy had suggested having salad and grilled Houlka. Using the Weber on low you put the Houlka in an aluminum pie pan so that it cooks in its own oils. Once it was ready it was served open faced on bread. It tasted great! 

Tomorrow I’ll return to get Kathy’s meds and try to finish resolving the problems with the truck. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Comfortable Walk.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After sleeping with the windows open again last night we were both out of bed by 8:00 this morning feeling well rested. It almost felt strange to be sitting at the computers doing our morning reading well before 9:00. 

Once we’d finished that I continued working on a spreadsheet I created listing Kathy’s medications. All the years that I’ve been setting up her pill Doucette I always did it correctly but I didn’t know what each pill did. Today I actually photographed each pill and added its picture next to the name and description of its use. Now there is no doubt of what everything is for. 

Shortly after lunch Kathy needed a few groceries that we didn’t pick up at Walmart yesterday but instead of driving we chose to walk to the nearby Metro Grocery Store. The weather was perfect today with a gentle breeze blowing from the north keeping the high temperature comfortable 72 F (22 C). Every grocery store chain has their own way of displaying the products they sell so this meant we needed to search a little more than we had planned for the items we were looking for. That also meant we also bought a few more things than what we had originally planned on. 

It wasn’t long after we walked back to the apartment that we were enjoying some of those extra purchases in the form of supper. Kathy had picked up a nicely roasted chicken at the deli counter that will be used to serve us for a few more meals. The Greek pasta salad and Cole slaw that we also bought at the deli counter didn’t last beyond supper. 

Tomorrow the temp should be a little warmer and since the grassy area behind our building stopped draining into the parking lot this afternoon I might be able to lay around under the truck tomorrow. I’ve got a lot more things to check off my to-do list before the end of the month. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Canada Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

The sound of the falling rain we heard  outside our open window really helped us to sleep soundly last night. We did sleep in slightly this morning because we had also watched a movie that ended at midnight. It didn’t take long to get back into our routine of having breakfast and finishing our coffees while doing our morning reading on the computers. 

Once we’d finished lunch we thought that we’d go for a ride just to get out of the apartment. Due to the fact that July 1st is when Canadians celebrate Canada Day (like the July 4th Independence Day in the US) lots of businesses were closed. After finding a couple of the places we’d planned on going to in such a state we decided on visiting the west end Walmart store in Windsor. It been quite some time since we were last there and it seems that they rearranged the store. Being a Federal holiday most people that had the day off from their jobs were out shopping so this store was really packed. This is the only Walmart that we know that located their grocery section directly in the middle of the store. Even though we’d planned on just looking around there were some in-store specials that helped us to save money on the few groceries we bought today. 

For supper I grilled a store bought pizza that we bought today on the Weber. It turned out great except that it was Taco Flavored and a bit too spicy for Kathy to eat. 

Tomorrow I’m hoping to get a few things crossed off our to-do list in preparation of our summer travels. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
