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.

Cool Errand Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Last night both Kathy and I had a restless night’s sleep. By the time we woke this morning it was past 9:30 and we were expecting somebody at the apartment by 10:00. It seemed we were both into high gear getting ourselves dressed, breakfast made and three-quarter eaten by the time our apartment intercom rang right at 10:00.
The visit this morning was the result of the downsizing and purging Kathy has been doing recently. When we were living in our home we had quite a collection of wine in our basement with racks that held over a hundred bottles as well as a Refrigerated Wine Cellar. By the time we moved we only needed the refrigerated wine cellar. Kathy has always been cautious not to overindulge in the wine too much because a few years back she was diagnosed with Diabetes. So her once a week glass of wine is now a once a month or two on special occasions. Today we sold our large Refrigerated Wine Cellar to a younger gentleman who is slowly building himself a large collection of varying wines.
After helping him load it in his vehicle I finished eating my now cold breakfast before leaving on an errand. Since I no longer have a garage to work on our vehicles I took Kathy’s car for an oil change. Surprisingly they were able to get it right in and I was back home by noon.
Today with the drop in temperature, rain showers and increase in winds due to the effects of hurricane Sandy nice hot soup hit the spot perfectly for lunch.
We needed to run another errand this afternoon to the Credit Union as Kathy was having problems doing our online banking. The tellers reset everything for her and tried it only to be shocked when it didn’t work for them. They worked a while longer and then were told by the programmer anything added today could not be used until tomorrow. They also showed Kathy how to reset it on her own if it were to happen to us while on the road.
After leaving there and feeling a little cooped up because of the weather we decided to walk around Walmart for a while. We got in some exercise and managed to pick a few food stocks in the grocery section to hold us over until the weekend when the weather is looking to be more to our liking.
It was after 5:30 by the time we sat down to enjoy some nice opened faced hot pork roast sandwiches for supper. That was from the roast Kathy cooked in the Crockpot yesterday.
With more dismal weather predicted for tomorrow we’ll be staying close to home thinking that Christmas is only 56 days away. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. The weather continues to be pretty wet. Lots of wind last night and some black outs. I think we may be at the end of it though. Hoping you are keeping dry and looking forward to some sunshine in the future. Take care.
