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.

Slower Busy Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Even after watching the 11 o’clock News last night we still managed to be in bed before midnight. The reason we stayed up was because they were telling us of a severe storm heading our way and Kathy doesn’t like severe storms. Well apparently the storm hit the area in the early morning hours and dumped one heck of a lot more rain than what we are used to. Fortunately for us we didn’t hear a thing and I had one of my best night’s sleep that I’ve had in a long time. I was up shortly after 7:00 so I just took my morning shower before starting breakfast. Kathy woke shortly after 8:00 where we had bagels and coffee for breakfast. This morning you could see more water than grass in the field behind the apartment where the tenants walk their dogs. 
By 9:30 we were on our way to the last retiree’s meeting before the summer at the local hall. When the meeting started the president addressed the members that a major change that will be taking place in the National structuring of the union. Two major unions will be joining together thus giving us more representation when it comes to dealing with changes that governments make to workforces across Canada. I haven’t spoken to my friend Ernie in the last ten days but it was announced at the meeting that he had started his Chemo and Radiation therapy on his tumor this past Tuesday so hopefully we’ll start hearing some good things from him soon. When the meeting was over they served us with a summer luncheon consisting of Chicken Cordon Bleu, roast potatoes, gravy, dinner rolls and salad. It was all good tasting and filling. 
Kathy and I had a few errands to run before heading home so the first one was back to Sears at the Devonshire Mall where something she bought the other day had gone on sale today. They have a policy that if the product goes on sale within a week they will refund the difference and they did. 
The next stop was at the Ford dealership where I needed to set up an appointment for work on the truck that is under warranty. My plan is to drop it off on Wednesday morning just ahead of the time of my surgery that way they can have it for a few days and I won’t care. 
The next stop was just up the road at Vehicle Venture. We had purchased this toneau cover for the truck in 2011 and lately the Velcro strip on the left side of the truck has not been holding it in place. We found out it has a five year warranty so the new one has been ordered and when it comes in they replace it. 
Our last stop was Shoppers Drug Mart where Kathy needed to find some over the counter medications. What she does is ask the Pharmacist to be certain it will not cause a reaction with her prescribed medications and she only uses them when necessary. 
Finally back at the apartment I fired up the Weber Q to grill up some Chicken kabobs while Kathy sautéed some Asparagus and a Sweet Potato. We were enjoying our supper while watching the 6 o’clock News and were surprised to see the heavy rains we had last night actually flooded part of the 401 highway and caused it to be closed for the day and traffic rerouted. Even though the area only received about three inches of rain parts of McGregor were also flooded with up four feet of water in some areas. This is totally unheard of for this area. 
Tomorrow we have a few more things to do to get ready for the Garage Sale on Saturday so we can get rid of more of our STUFF. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
