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.

Hot Storms Brewing.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Waking shortly after 8:00 this morning we sat at the dining room table to have our cereal and coffee while watching the weather channel. Yesterday they had predicted cooler temperatures for today and they reaffirmed it this morning. Today the humidex would only feel like 113 F (45 C) compared to yesterday’s higher temperatures. As I explained to Kathy this would be what we’d feel if we were in the mountain areas of Montana at this time of year since they have low to no humidity. 

Since we have made plans in Jell-O to do some light travelling this summer once the surgeon says that I’m good to go we have other things that need to be done before that. So with only 159 days before Christmas we needed to continue working on our Christmas shopping list. 

Sometimes you buy things for someone that needs batteries and we always make certain to supply those with the gift. Kathy was in such a rush to wrap gifts that she wrapped two without taking note of the battery requirement. Our first stop was to Toys-R-Us at the Roundhouse Center for the needed research and additional purchases. The number of checkmarks on our shopping list continues to grow and we know that when we are done we’ll be able to avoid the mayhem of the holiday shopping crowds. 

Next we went across the street to the Devonshire Mall where we started by going to Target first and walking through the entire mall. We stopped at the food court and had a unique Spaghetti and Meatball half dinner for lunch that left us satisfied but not uncomfortably stuffed. Continuing our walk we managed to find even more items to help fulfill the things on our shopping list. 

Arriving home before 3:00 I dropped Kathy as close to the door of the building as I could before parking the truck. Luckily today the wind has been blowing a moderately warm breeze but it is helping to make it feel more comfortable than yesterday. The Tropical-like Storm that was predicted for this afternoon didn’t occur until nearly dark and doesn’t look to be as bad as earlier predicted. Of course it is supposed to continue through the night so if you see us floating by you’ll know we got slammed. 
The temperatures are supposed to continue falling through the weekend before rebounding a bit next week. This could be a chance for us to enjoy some outdoor time. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
