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.

A Day of Special Occasions.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

This morning we were both up by 8:00 and felt totally rested even after having watched the 11 o’clock news last night. Again it was raining fairly steady all through the night and it took until noon for the cloud covering to finally clear.  
After breakfast we went to the computers to do our usual blog and E-mail reading before moving on to other things. One of those things we are tracking on the computer is our data usage on our Turbo Hub. When we had the DSL high speed modem for our internet connection we left the computers on day and night so they were always ready when we needed them and it didn’t cost us anything extra for it. The charge for our Turbo Hub works on a graduating scale and the more data transfer the more we pay. When Kathy checked our usage the other day we couldn’t believe how high our data usage was. So since the other night we have been shutting them down at night and even during the day if we are not working on the computers. Time will tell if there is a flaw in the system or possibly someone has hacked into our secured connection. 
This afternoon we finally got a call that we’d been waiting for from our son Gary. His family was down today because Jen our daughter-in-law’s sister Melissa was having a baby shower. So we decided to meet them for a short visit at the Tim Horton’s just around the corner from us. We got big hugs from both our grandsons Connor and Haigan just for seeing them as a fact Haigan launched himself up at grandpa because normally I pick him up high. After explaining grandpa couldn’t do it right now because of the surgery he was okay but played a little bashful. We also celebrated a belated birthday for Haigan who turned 6 on Wednesday. It was sad when they had to go and worst because I forgot the camera today so we didn’t get any pictures. 
Once they had left we needed to run a couple of errands. One was a quick stop at the dollar store and the next was a stop at Walmart to get some groceries we were running low on. Luckily I had brought in a couple of our insulated bags to carry the frozen and refrigerated foods in because it was plenty hot outside. Our next stop was back at the apartment where we unloaded the groceries and got the perishables put away before going out for supper. 
We headed over to the Michigan Diner on Manning Road where between the hours of 3 pm and 6 pm every day we can eat off a seniors menu at a reduced cost. Their senior’s portions are slightly less than the regular menu but we still couldn’t eat it all and ended up with a take home container. They also have a nice 50’s/60’s atmosphere that we always enjoy. We were also celebrating our Twelfth Wedding Anniversary a day early today. We had many trials before we ever met and many challenges that we have faced together but neither of us would ever want it any other way.  
With Love and a solid relationship we will continue enjoying the good things life has to offer us. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
