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.

Errands Again!

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We did sleep with the bedroom window opened a slight bit last night which gave us plenty of fresh air and it even helped us to keep the covers pulled up. We did sleep in until 8:00 this morning and felt fairly refreshed. As we were enjoying our waffles and coffee for breakfast we were very glad to see the Weather Channel predicting a slow but steady improvement in the temperatures through the next week. We moved to the computers to get caught up on our morning reading afterwards. 
I had called the hospital the other day to talk with my friend Ernie to see how he was doing and was very happy to learn that he had been sent home. Many provinces in Canada feel that patients will heal better in their own homes than in the hospitals themselves after having procedures done. They will send nurses out to your homes to monitor that you are taking the medications you should, changing surgical dressings and monitoring your progress.  
This morning I called his home and spoke to his wife Sheryl for a few minutes. She was trying to apologize for not having let me know he was home. I assured her that should be the last thing she worries about because she has a lot more on her mind. Ernie finally got on the line and he sounded his usual happy go lucky self. He explained a few problems that the doctors had encountered in his treatment and what they did to correct it. He even got a chance to visit with his mother who is still recovering from a medical procedure of her own. I signed off telling him that we’ll have to help him and Sheryl break in their C-class RV once we’re all doing better. 
Kathy and I were at Walmart by 11:30 so I could pick up the tool box I had seen yesterday. Yesterday I needed to measure the cabinet in the truck to be certain it would fit before I bought it. We also spent some time looking around for ideas of something to buy because there are a number of special birthdays coming up this month. 
We stopped at A&W and used a coupon that helped us keep our lunch cost down. Next we headed to the Coles Book Store at the Tecumseh Mall but unfortunately they didn’t have what we needed. Driving across town to the Devonshire Mall we went to the Chapters Book Store where they had a large variety of the books to choose from.  
While at the mall we met up with one of our neighbors from our old neighborhood when we had the house.  They have also moved not too far from us this last month. It was a very short but pleasant visit and update.  We hope to see them again soon. 
After enjoying our supper of Spare Ribs that Kathy had put in the slow cooker before we left this morning we headed over to our daughter’s for our Sunday night visit. They had their friends Kevin and Sandi over for dinner so we visited with them as well. They are also into RVing and were interested to hear about our trip to Florida first hand. Even though we had eaten before going over they still shared dessert and tea with us. 
For a couple who are retired we do seem to keep very busy. Makes you wonder how you did anything at all while you were still working. Tomorrow we have a lot more to do. 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

Neighbors come to you for tire swing advice.


  1. You do stay busy...but isn't it fun to be on your own schedule? Just think, we had to do all those things and work.

    Hope you enjoy today!

  2. It was one of the things that surprised us when we retired, how busy you can be. Almost wish we were still working...almost! ;c)

  3. I haven't met a retired couple yet that say they are bored.
