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, Chores and Good Food.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We both slept fairly well last night but Kathy still has a lot of discomfort from not having any Arthritic Medication to take. Relying on Extra Strength Tylenol for pain medication is not anyone’s way to go through life. We stayed in bed until 8:30 this morning before having our breakfast and soon afterwards going out the door to see Kathy’s family doctor. 
Kathy was already in the examining room talking with her doctor by the time I had parked the car. She had a true heart to heart talk with the doctor about her pain and another issue on her chart. By the time she walked out she had a new prescription to try and if that doesn’t help her within the next month the doctor will put her back on the medication that does work. 
I stopped off at Windsor Gas and Diesel to drop off my service key for the truck. I had planned on giving it to them yesterday but forgot it back at the apartment. I’ll be dropping the truck off for its yearly safety certification on Monday and should have it back by Tuesday unless our friend Don the Licensed Truck Mechanic can finish it by Monday afternoon. It all depends on his being able to finish the last job on the hoist first. 
We also had to stop at Shoppers Drug Mart to get Kathy’s prescription for her new arthritic medication filled. We needed to wait about twenty minutes for it so we just browsed around the store admiring all the nice looking things that we weren’t going to buy. 
Once we got back to the apartment it was time for lunch. It is amazing how fast time flies even when you’re not always having fun. Once we’d eaten I started sorting the laundry which got delayed this week because of all the appointments we had. Kathy insisted on passing the vacuum around right after I went out the door and not surprisingly picked up a fair amount of dust caused by the construction on our building. Notice By the time I had returned with the folded clothes Kathy needed a Snap which was fine with me because I needed a short break from the laundry because I had forgotten to wear my Hernia belt and was really feeling the effects of folding the laundry.
Notice how small those trucks appear?
For supper I fired up our Weber Q 120 on the balcony and put on a couple of nice Sirloin steaks. Kathy was making a couple of nice salads made with baby spinach for a side. While I was inside I sliced up a nice Sweet Potato so that Kathy could sauté them as fries on the stove. Everything just seemed to be ready at once and we had a delicious supper and got a chance to watch the evening news at the same time. 
The rest of the evening was spent at the computers and the weather is supposed to start climbing back to seasonal temperatures starting tomorrow. I’m sure that means we won’t just be sitting around. What do you think? Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. So glad Kathy's doctor is listening to hear. Sometimes that doesn't happen.

  2. Hope the new meds help with the pain.

    Chores, errands...ugh!..good food...yum! I've never sauted sweet potatoes...will have to give that a try! We love sweet tators!

  3. Nothing like cool day to get things done.
    Nice that Kathy's doctor is trying to help her out too.
