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.

Busy Day

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It is amazing how on a slow relaxing day we're always busy. After catching up on some of the blogs that are posted in different time zones, we started our apartment cleaning. This was the big one, catching all those unseen dust-bunnies that sneak in uninvited to hibernate behind your backs. It was also the time to get all the smugges off the mirrors and glass tops. Once the vaccuuming and other chores were done it was lunch.

The whole procedure of cleaning this apartment had taken all of an hour and a half. When we lived in our house it would have taken us at least two days to do the inside, then it was time to start outside.

During the nice weather we'd rather be on the road, instead of being tied to a house. We don't even have to hire somebody to cut the grass or shovel the snow. This apartment living is really going to be hard getting used to. Yeah Right!

Donna K from Travels in Therapy asked in a comment yesterday if we had gotten a good deal on our new toys. Our intention had not been to make any purchases yesterday. We were inquiring and Ryan the salesman answered them straightout. He also told us that the Source was giving Special Deals to keep shoppers in Canada, for Black Friday weekend.

We walked out having spent about $475.00. The purchase includes a 7" Acer Droid touchpad, 2 Samsung Droid smart phones, a 32" Samsung LCD television, and satellite system to be installed after the new year (By our choice). It is hard to believe that by having one provider instead of three, we will be saving 5 times plus what this purchase cost us in the first year alone.

I still trying to fine tune our blog, adding more travel locations to our map, that will take some time. I'm still having a few issues, but hopefully we'll work through them soon.

This week when we helped our son with his Christmas decorations, we found out that the town of Amherstburg decorates their park and river front for the holidays. So while we were taking pictures of our son's home we also took pictures of the parks in Amherstburg. What we will do is post a few of these every night until Christmas. It's not so much to send everyone off to the stores to buy decorations, but a way to put people into the spirit of the season. Enjoy!

It's about time.


A teenage girl had been talking on the phone for about an hour when she hung up.

"Wow!" her father said, "that was short. You usually talk for two hours. What Happened?"

"Wrong number", replied the girl.

  1. although since downsizing and retiring in June, and renovating our home to install an apartment for ourselves, I am finding it sometimes difficult living in this smaller space...after being used to the big house area (which we now have rented out). But when it comes to cleaning-- I'm loving you its done from top to bottom in less than 2 hours and thats a deep cleaning :) There is an upside to everything isn't there.
