It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We managed to sleep in again this morning since we had nothing pressing. After breakfast we got caught up on answering E-mails and reading blogs. I also downloaded pictures we had taken the last few days, but because of the way I've been dragging just didn't do it last night. One of those pictures I immediately up loaded it to yesterdays post because it involves my grandson and I am putting together one of his toys. I figured if you write about it and have a picture post them together not on different posts.

Kathy was reworking our family picture frame so I had to scan and resize a few shots for her. With six kids and a dozen grandchildren that's a lot of pictures. If you put them all in separate frames and hung them up, that's a lot of holes in the walls. If people are looking to buy your home that could be a real deal breaker so we found a simple way to do that. We found a frame that holds 21 pictures. Some mounted as portrait and the others as landscape. This allows us to have family pictures and school pictures of each grandchild plus a picture of Gramma and Grampa for good measure and it only used one screw hole. When we moved to the apartment it surely came with us.

After lunch we filled the car with gas and headed to do some store walking. We stopped and had a great chicken dinner holiday special with all the trimmings at the local Swiss Chalet diner. From there we waddled home to the apartment.

My sister Anna stopped in for her Christmas visit. It's her first time seeing the apartment since the last time she was in town when we were away in our trailer. She was impressed but said that she's just not ready for an apartment yet even after we showed her the indoor pool. We had a great visit as usual and when  it was time for her to leave there were promises of getting together again this year that we will definitely be keeping.

Until that happens we'll celebrate Christmas with our own kids in two days. Look forward to spring in 98 days. Best of all until then we can still enjoy looking at more Christmas lights.

It's about time.


Two snakes are talking.
One of them turns to the other and asks, "Are we venomous?"
The other snake replies, "Yes. Why?"
The first snake says, "I just bit my lip."
