It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Good Food and Party Time.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

After posting the blog last night we did something we haven’t done since our grandson Tyler stayed over before Thanksgiving. We went swimming just the two of us. It felt wonderful to let the heated water of the pool help ease some of our aches and pains. After our showers back at the apartment it didn’t take too long and we were in bed early. Combining that evening swim with the cold weather walk we had in the afternoon added up to a solid night’s sleep for the both of us.

It's a good thing we didn’t have any appointments this morning because we didn't wake up until after 8:30. It seems our internal clocks didn't work so well cutting back any extra time we might have had. As soon as breakfast was over the kitchen was transformed into a bake shop as we had four and a half dozen cupcakes to bake and decorate.
By noon we had finally managed to do our morning reading on the computers plus set all the cupcakes to cool. After eating lunch we were back at the icing them all up. I mixed the icing while Kathy started with the Lemon Cupcakes first before doing the Vanilla Coconut Snowball Cupcakes and finally the Chocolate Cupcakes. Since we no longer live in our home we are limited to our counter space so every chance I had I was packing them into a cake box so they could be transported.
Once the kitchen was completely cleaned and reorganized we started getting ready to leave. Just before 5:30  Karen and Greg’s dropped off our grandson Tyler who was coming with us to the Halloween party at our son’s home in Amherstburg.
Tyler got to play with his cousin Matthew and the other kids that were there. Kevin decorates the backyard and a clubhouse he built for Cameron and Matthew so the kids can play outside. He transforms his garage every year into a Party Pavilion and covers over the workbenches to serve as a buffet for all the food everyone brings. Although it did get a bit crowded when there was a brief shower outside and also when the kids came in to sample the food that was brought for everyone’s enjoyment. The adults mostly sat inside the garage keeping warm enjoying the food and exchanging stories. Some were amazed when they asked of our travels and others wanting to change places with us. 
We left shortly before 11:00 pm. heading for home because not only were we tired but so was Tyler who has an 11:00 am. hockey game in the morning. He will be spending the night and we’ll bring him to the arena and stay for the game. We are just lucky we live so close to him so we can be there to cheer him on. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
