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.

Changed Plans.

Our Location today is Venice, Florida.

With the both of us finally getting a decent night’s sleep after a few that were restless when we slept passed 8:00 it almost felt like we’d been drugged. Kathy insisted on cooking French Toast for breakfast a change from our normal cereal. Having breakfast and watching the Weather Channel as they were showing heavy rains headed our way for this afternoon the NOAA radio started displaying Tornado Watches in effect until Supper time this evening. This raised a little concern but if the need were to arise we’d simply go to the clubhouse for safety. 
Our morning view out our rear window. 
Kathy wanted to work on her bookkeeping this morning while I had a few things that I took outside to adjust. I had that finished and was back inside the trailer by 10:45. Within minutes of closing the door the rain started coming down with almost torrential strength. Anyone outside would have been instantly drenched. 

Since Kathy was still busy with the bookkeeping she asked that I help start cooking lunch. This is something that I enjoy doing when she instructs me because I have no idea of what spices to use to improve the taste of food. Half way finished Kathy joined me and we finished it together.

While sitting eating lunch the rain intensity increased and we started hearing thunder in the distance. By the time we’d finished eating the wind had picked up rocking the trailer from side to side making it difficult to walk or stand in the trailer.

By 1:00 the intensity of the thunder felt like it was shaking the ground we are parked on and last sometimes over a minute. Up to this time we had only heard the thunder but now we started seeing the flashes of lightning and when the thunder would start it actually rattled the dishes in the kitchen cabinets.

Like I said in last night’s post we had plans that we were looking on enjoying after lunch but with the high winds, heavy rain, thunder and lightning along with the threat of a possible Tornado our plans got changed and we stuck close to home. We still have a few days here before we again head north and the weather is supposed to clear up. 
Our evening view. The moist grass has a darker shade.
Looking out the back window before supper the Sawgrass that was looking dry and yellow is now dark in color from all the rainwater that it has absorbed this afternoon. 
Here's something we haven't seen all day.
Tonight we simply had Chicken noodle soup for supper. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Did you hear about the famous inventors who failed to invent the airplane?

They were the Wrong Brothers.

  1. Please, please, please be safe. We were in three tornadoes in Oklahoma City a few years back. They are scary. When they tell you to seek shelter, don't delay!
