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.

Home Appointment, Shopping and Good Food.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

The other day the Weather Channel showed night time lows reaching near freezing with the wind chills being below that. Since Kathy was fighting flu like symptoms at the time she decided it was time to turn on the heat in our apartment on low so it would take the dampness out of the air. Yes it has helped so that we are not as cold at night but with the windows also closed we have become more restless during our night time sleeping hours without the fresh air in the room. 

We both felt tired when we woke before 8:00 this morning but with an 11:00 appointment at the apartment we knew we couldn’t doddle. Breakfast was simple but filling ending with the morning dishes being washed and put away immediately after. Once the rest of the apartment was cleaned and staged we finally got a chance to sit and do our morning reading. 

I went to check the mail moments before 11:00 thinking that I’d be there when Connie would arrive but after waiting for a bit and talking with some of the other neighbors Kathy appeared telling me she had just received a call that she was running behind schedule. Back in the apartment I had just settled back in at the computer when the phone rang and Connie had arrived. 

If you recall it has been stated a number of times that Kathy has Type II diabetes but it still has serious side effects. One of those is that she has a problem with her toe nails becoming infected and they need to be medically treated periodically. Connie is a qualified foot specialist from a company called Happy Heals that goes to the patient’s homes to perform the treatments. After filling in the paperwork Connie got to work on Kathy’s feet. She has this amazing tool cart on wheels with all her equipment in it and it’s all sterile. An hour later she was finally finished and Kathy was astounded by how good her feet felt and it was all covered by our health care benefits. 

We finally had our lunch around 1:00 and as soon as that was completed we started working together to create a Cabbage Roll Casserole that we’d later have for supper. Once it was out of the oven and cooling on the counter Kathy and I left to go do some store walking for exercise. 

Since we are slowly getting ready for when we leave for Florida after Christmas we are slowly gathering some staples that is actually cheaper here at home. Our first stop was the Zehr’s Super Store down the street from our old neighborhood. We were able to cross a few more articles off our list of things to bring without breaking the bank. 

We continued across the street to the Canadian Tire Store where we also picked up a small trellis for one of our household plants that has decided to grow like a bad weed (Pun Intended). Electronic Pest controllers so we don’t have to worry about uninvited guest in the trailer and some Diesel Fuel additive were also picked up. 

After unloading our purchases at the apartment we enjoyed our casserole and the best part is there is enough for a few more meals in coming days. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
