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.

Sleep-Over, Hockey Game, Visiting and Cleaning.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Tyler arrived just after we posted the blog last night. So in order to celebrate we all donned our swimsuits and headed downstairs for a swim. Last year the pool was closed from the beginning of September to the end of December while upgrades and modifications were made. Kathy and I only used it once in May because of the problems I was experiencing from the hernia. It felt great to be able to soak in a comfortably warm environment which helped alleviate a lot of our aches and pains. 

Back at the apartment after we all had our showers and got into our sleepwear we added ice cream cones to the celebration. It wasn’t long before Tyler’s eyes were closing on him so after covering him up Kathy and I watched the local news while laying in our bed. 

This morning we were up shortly after 8:00 and Kathy immediately started cooking Ham and Eggs while I made the Coffee and Toast. She figured we all needed a good breakfast to start our day but found out that Tyler doesn’t eat heavy meals before he plays a hockey game. Tyler complained that the couch in our living room that he has slept on whenever he sleeps over is suddenly too short for him to get a good night’s sleep. (Maybe it’s shrinking?) 

By 10:00 we were meeting Karen and Greg at the Tecumseh Arena. We got to have our Sunday Night visit early today and they even brought coffees from Tim Horton’s to help warm us up. Today was the first time in nearly two years that we’ve had a chance to see Tyler skating and have to admit that he has really come a long way. He was playing team forward but even though he had nearly ten shots on the opposing team’s net he just couldn’t buy a goal today. The other team had many more mature players to their advantage and slipped the winning goal in seconds before the final buzzer. 

After lunch Kathy and I went over to visit with Kathie and Ross. Ross was unfortunately away on his Security job. We have also held back from visiting Kathie because we believed she was having her knee replacement done on September 19th but it is not happening until the 23rd of this month. We still had an enjoyable visit before it was time for us to come home. 

Kathy took a Snap before we started a heavy duty cleaning of the kitchen where we pulled the fridge and stove forward so we can make certain there is no longer any dust leftover from last year’s construction work. After I moved the stove Kathy cleaned the exhaust hood and took the filter off so she could clean it but quickly put the filter back when three live Yellow Jackets fell out. They were the only ones we dealt with today. 

After a nice bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup for supper it was time to relax for the rest of the day. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
