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.

Leisure Accomplishments.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Even with all the walking we did yesterday Kathy and I messed up royally. We had a piece of the chocolate cake trimmings we had made from our granddaughter Kylla’s birthday cake for breakfast yesterday and then another sliver of the actual Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cake at the party. We both forgot how much caffeine there is in that much cake and icing. Needless to say neither of us slept much throughout the night and we have been dragging most of the day. 
Or maybe it was last night's full moon that kept us awake.
After breakfast I went outside to reorganize the inside of the truck. With the high heat we were putting up with last week and dealing with the flat tire the back seat was a disaster. I managed to get everything stored the way it was supposed to be and better. I was also wiping spider webs the size of which I had never seen before. The warm weather we got last week was stifling hot most days accompanied by harsh thunderstorms at least every other day. After parking the truck Saturday night and using the car yesterday the spiders must have thought that the vehicle had been abandoned and basically covered every square inch of it. 

I made additional measurements before going back into the apartment and reviewing what fasteners I had and what I’d need to purchase to complete my next job on the truck. Kathy had been busy while I was outside trying to find affordable extended healthcare for us for next winter when we go south to Florida. The same company that insure us last year has changed their qualification limits and even though Kathy is on less medication they are at present deeming her ineligible to qualify for insurance. 

After lunch we went to Home Depot where you can get the best selection of Stainless Steel hardware at the most reasonable price. The reason that I use Stainless is because it will never corrode so if I need to take it apart I will always be able to do so. We also walked around just looking at some of the newer home products they had in stock. Walking out with only the screws that I had gone for it was still early and we still wanted to do more walking we went to the Tecumseh Mall. 

We walked from store to store and after an hour and a half we only purchased the insulated shopping bags to replace our worn ones and a pair of flip flop sandals that I need for in the trailer. All those items were on our shopping list but we did splurge and bought ourselves each an ice coffee for a dollar each at the food court. 

Back at the apartment it was time for supper and Kathy only needed to make a Caesar Salad to go with the Spare Ribs she had cooking in the slow cooker while we had been gone. She had seasoned them with a Sweet Chili sauce that really gave them a great taste that wasn’t too over powering. 

Tomorrow is supposed to be our warmest and wettest day this week so we’ll have to find something to keep ourselves busy with. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
