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.

Busy Busy Relaxing Day

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Kathy was falling asleep watching the television before 11:00 last night so she was in bed first. Myself I finally felt tired enough to sleep by 1:30 but was wide awake by 7:30 and started making breakfast before Kathy walked into the room. We had coffee, cereal and toast because we had a lot of running to do this morning so we needed the extra energy. 
After the problem with our E-mails last night the technician I spoke to gave me a phone number I needed to call this morning. When I explain the problem the person immediately started setting things up to reopen the accounts that should never had been closed in the first place. 
Once that was finished we transferred a few things from the car to the truck and then drove over to our daughter Karen’s to pick up the unsold STUFF from Saturday’s garage sale.  Our next stop was Value Village where we dropped off the STUFF that was being donated. They will sell this STUFF and in return the money raised will go to supporting the Diabetes Association.
There was more STUFF that had been put aside after the sale which led to our next stop on the west end of Windsor. Computers For Kids is a licensed charity that takes in old computers and electronic equipment. The computers that are repairable are then set up in homes of underprivileged families so the children will not fall behind their classmates at using a computer as a learning tool. They have also set up computers in community centers where seniors are able to use them. Corporations that change their equipment every few years donate to this charity. What is not usable gets recycled and the money raised from that helps pay for the expenses needed to run the charity but all that E-waste does not end up in a landfill.
We still had one more box of hardware (STUFF) that didn’t sell at the garage sale that we planned on dropping off at our son Kevin’s home in Amherstburg. By this time our big breakfast was a thing of the past so we stopped at McDonald’s and each had one of their new Wraps and they were good and even filled us up. The students from the High-School across the street are writing their final exams this week and the place was filled with them having lunch and studying for their afternoon exams.
Minutes later we were at Kevin’s house and found him working on a small project in the garage. When he saw what we’d brought him he was smiling ear to ear and was already making plans of where to use it.
We next headed to Sun Parlour Trailer not so much to see the trailer but to get my other Hernia belt out of the front cabinet where I’d left it. Keystone has finally started sending the parts to fix the trailer but the one part still missing is the part they need to install the very first before anything else can be done.
From there we headed back to the apartment where Kathy set up the slow cooker to cook a roast that she’ll be slicing to make into sandwiches over the remainder of the week. I had to recall Bell because the person that helped me this morning hadn’t done something right because we were down again. This time before I got off the phone all the E-mail addresses were working and a credit to our account was being made for our troubles.
Kathy by this time was making a Walnut Date Loaf bread and needed my assistance for chopping the nuts and dates fine and then for stirring the batter. Because of the Arthritic pain in her hands she can’t do all the things she used to so I’m happy to help. Once that was in the oven I returned to assembling my mud-flap project until it was time for supper.
What's everyone looking at down there? Did I miss something?
We accomplished a lot today and need to do much more tomorrow before my surgery on Wednesday. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
