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.

Wonderful Day Together.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After having a good night’s sleep on Sunday night I could only hope that I’d get a replay and really feel rested. Unfortunately that didn’t happen so after I managed a couple hours of sleep I was up shortly after 8:30 this morning. 

Kathy soon joined me and we watched the Weather Channel to see all the destruction that was done by the Tornadoes in the southern states yesterday. We will definitely be thinking of them in our prayers. 

We are still having problems with pop-ups on Kathy’s laptop and I was busy running scans on it while Kathy used my computer to do her reading. 

For lunch we chose to eat lightly and have soup. Just as we were finishing eating the phone rang and it was Mark our Financial Advisor asking if we could reschedule our appointment from this afternoon to tomarrow. While he was having breakfast this morning a tooth broke and he was at the dentist getting it repaired. He didn’t think it would be proper trying to talk with us with a slur. 

Since we now had an open afternoon and the weather was overcast with showers we decided to go walking around the Devonshire Mall. We easily covered five miles walking from store to store and checking most of the aisles. What we did accomplish was getting ideas of things to buy as Christmas gifts. It’s not wise waiting to do this at the last minute since we are only 240 days away from that special day. 
We took the time to buy a couple of Egg Rolls and a soda around 2:00 in the food court. That little bit of nourishment help us to do even more walking. We even left the mall and looked around a few more retail outlets. 
Finally at 4:30 we arrived at a restaurant called “The Sandbar” a few miles from our home. For special occasions we tell the kids instead of buying us gifts that we might not ever use we tell them to just give us Gift Cards. The gift cards vary from places to eat to movies or can be used to purchase things we need for the apartment or trailer even groceries. We love these consumable gifts as they don’t take up any room and are used throughout the year. 

Since we had been given gift cards to “The Sandbar” we used them to celebrate our birthdays. Normally we celebrate the day between since Kathy’s birthday is April 29th and mine is May 1st. This year we celebrated on Kathy’s birthday and because this was Tuesday they also had a wonderful steak dinner special that was done to perfection. Kathy had hers with a salad while I had mine with mashed potatoes covered with mushrooms and fried onions. The atmosphere was very nice but the personal time together was fantastic. 

On our way home we stopped at Metro Grocery store for lots of things on our list that we needed to restock our pantry and refrigerator. We did try not to over do it because we’ll be leaving in another ten days for Indiana to attend the Escapade. 

Tomorrow morning I’ll try contacting Verizon again since they feel it’s not necessary to call back clients that have issues. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Happy birthday, Kathy & Happy soon-to-be birthday, Rick! Safe travels to Indiana!

  2. Hi Rick-
    Have been following your blog for a while and enjoy hearing about you travels and life issues and pleasures. Our blog has not been updated for a while - just found it a chore to do everyday. Regarding your problem with pop ups - I was having the same problem this winter and found the culprit to be a program called " whilokii". Found it on my computer (windows 8) didn't know what it was, did some research and found it to cause the pop up problem. Deleted it and haven't had a problem since.
    Stay warm up there in Canada!!
