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.

Spring Has Arrived???

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We slept in this morning until 8:00 but couldn't find the sun anywhere in the neighbourhood. Turning on the weather channel the announcer was standing outside in the sunshine wear an open jacket. It's amazing how much difference there is in the weather when they're 150 miles from your location. By the time we had read our E-mails and a few blogs it had started to rain.

That determined that we were going to work on home projects today. By the time we finished lunch the rain had turned to pea sized hail that was clattering against the windows. If you look at the picture above you can see a pattern the hail made in the parking lot as it melted and headed for the drain. By supper time the hail had totally melted and as of this writing the rain has finally stopped. At the beginning of last week we were officially still in the Winter season having Summertime temperatures. Flowers are blooming all around us and now that is Spring it feels more like Winter.

A short time ago someone had signed on to our site as a follower but there was no information on that person. When I thanked them for following but mentioned the lack of information they E-mailed me with what I needed to properly thank and introduce them. Since that time whenever I would read other blogs I followed I would sign-in. The other day I noted that when you checked the profile of the sites we were following nowhere did it show a link to our blog. Upon running across a site that did show our blog I noted it was signed in by Blogger not Google. This afternoon I manage to change 150 of the followers profiles of the 160 sites we follow. Hopefully that will make it easier for anyone trying to figure out who the heck Rick and Kathy Rousseau are and not having to find out by accident.

Our daughter-in-law Melissa stopped over for a short visit tonight on her way home from work. This was her first visit since we moved here last year. She was always reading our blog seeing pictures of the apartment the pool and the parking lot but had never seen it first hand. She was amazed how we went from our large home to the apartment and still kept the aesthetics and comfort. We were very happy that she stopped in.

Tonight Kathy and I would like to thank a new follower of our blog. Thank You goes out to Cheryl Leonard who is brand new Blogger from DayDreamer. along with her husband Tom they are working towards joining the fulltiming life style. We'll definitely be rooting for you both and keeping an eye on your blog post coming up.

I sure we're not the only ones counting down the days to Summer. It's 82 days which means that in 65 days Kathy and I will be back on the road. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.


Customer: "I'd like two pork chops please,

and make them lean."
