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.

I Spy With My Little Eye.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Something must be wrong! I only woke twice from my sleep last night. As a fact I was sleeping so well that it was 8:18 when my eyes focused on the clock. Somehow I had forgotten to set the alarm last night. I was out the door and at our daughter Karen’s by 8:30 to drive our granddaughter Kylla to her Orthodontist.
The last time she was there was before her knee surgery this past summer. Since both her parents were at work and we live so close I was asked if it would be possible to bring her there and then to school afterwards. The appointment went well and I was back at the apartment having breakfast with Kathy before 10:00.
Once breakfast was complete I prepared the laundry into loads for washing before heading downstairs. With the washers going I went back upstairs to read a few blogs before heading back down to get the dryers going.
Kathy had started wrapping the remaining Christmas Gifts we had purchased. Stopping only for lunch she continued working on this chore even after I returned with all the folded laundry. Even though there is still 84 days left before Christmas we are about 75% finished our shopping &wrapping.
Most people that write blogs do so as a personal ledger and so their families can keep track of what you are up to. That is the idea behind putting it on the blog.
Kathy brought homemade mini crousants for dessert.
With this being Wednesday we went out to our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa for our weekly visit. During the course of our visit Melissa admitted to being curious about one of the pictures that was recently posted on Monday’s post. She saw that Kathy had applied a rather large tag on the package and enlarged the picture to read the name. Still having difficulty reading the name she got out the magnifying glass to help her eyesight. She needs a stronger magnifying glass for sure.
She admitted to reading their names on the package. It was cute that the child still lives in all of us as adults. She was reminded that sometimes the smallest gifts come in the largest boxes.
Kathy and I have set up a program that allows so much per adult child and more for the grandchildren. We keep track of the spending and know that everyone is treated equally for that special day. Like the lyrics in the song says, Kids from one to ninety-two.
Thanks for following along with us and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
