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 Is In The Air.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After having a beautiful sun filled day like yesterday we could only hope for more of the same today. Instead we both had a restless night’s sleep and when we finally got up this morning and looked outside all we saw was lots of wet pavement and a dreary looking cloud filled sky.

We are continuing to cut back on what we are eating in an attempt at loosing the weight we found while down in Florida this winter. One of our biggest downfalls is the consumption of breads so that has been reduced quite a bit already since our return. After a bran muffin and coffee for breakfast we spent most of the morning working on the computers. We did take a few minutes to clean a dove’s nest from above our Air Conditioner Sleeve. We made certain there were no eggs before removing it and we also swept all the defecation that was starting to get pretty thick off the balcony.

At lunch we had toast which is still bread but with homemade Rhubarb Sauce and a coffee. That is still much less bread than what we normally eat in a day. When lunch was completed we needed to run some errands even though it was still raining. 
Our first stop was Shoppers Drug Mart where we needed to pick up a few toiletries that we are starting to run low on. Being the diligent shoppers we are at saving money if it wasn’t on our list and it wasn’t on sale we didn’t buy it. Kathy had also brought along gift cards to use that had been given to us at Christmas from our children. We may not have walked out of the store without paying out of our pockets but the cost was much easier to bear. 
Further down the road we stopped at Home Depot to find some stainless steel screws that I needed for a project. Since the screws will be exposed to the weather it is I not a wise idea to use standard hardware that would soon start rusting and lose its clean appearance.

With the second errand out of the way we stopped at the Tecumseh Mall to walk around. We did stop in the food court where Kathy enjoyed an Ice-Cap and I had a Decaffeinated Coffee from Tim Horton’s as an afternoon snack. We then continued to walk around and go to the Dollar Store for more supplies that were needed on our list. 
See the rain on the pavement.

Notice I had already cut the Lasagna in half.
Since it was nearing 4:00 we drove through the parking lot to East Side Mario’s for supper. Again we were able to use another Christmas gift card that we had received from our children. We decided to celebrate our birthday dinner today rather than on Tuesday. For those who don’t know Kathy’s birthday is April 29th and my birthday is May 1st so we normally celebrate it the day between which is April 30th. We both enjoyed a side salad and shared a Stuffed Mushroom appetizer. It has also been quite a while since we have been to Eastside Mario’s because we both ordered their Lasagna dinners. Guess what we’re having for supper Tuesday night? Their servings are huge so we basically just cut them in half and brought the rest home for supper Tuesday rather than waddling out of there in discomfort. 
Homemade Dessert at home.
Back at the apartment we received the evil eye from an upset dove for cleaning up the mess they had created. Around 7:30 we stopped working in the office for a few minutes and enjoyed our delayed delicious tasting dessert of Frozen Yogurt topped with Strawberries. Sitting at the dining room table looking out the balcony doors we could see the rain still coming down in the parking lot. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

You have a black eye and a hickey at the same time.
