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.

Mixture of Busy.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Both Kathy and I managed to get a full night’s sleep and were both up before 8:00 this morning. According to the Weather Channel our temps would make it into the mid 60’s today but the whole time we were out it never made it above the low 50’s.

Once breakfast was finished we headed for the computers to do our morning reading. Again I had to cheat and go into the blogs that I follow through the back door in order to read today’s post. When I was half way through the last post that I wanted to read the computer just started to reboot itself for no reason. That’s exactly what Kathy’s laptop had been doing for the last few months. 

Shortly before 10:00 we headed out with the truck in an attempt to do a number of errands. The first was to again put something in the trailer as well as taking something else out to bring home. While we were at the storage yard I notified the office that while we were gone away this past winter the snow plow driver had scraped away most of the gravel from our site as well as destroying the metal marker posts. I also informed them that the trailer was leaving on Friday for two weeks giving them time to fix it. 

The next stop was at Sears for Kathy to find some new pants as some of her’s are starting to show signs of wear. With no luck there we went to the west end Walmart looking again unsuccessfully for those pants and some shoes. Since Payless Shoes was at the other end on the parking lot that’s where we went. Not only did she find the shoes she needed but they were on sale to top it off.

We were only a block away from “The Bicycle Shop” so armed with the size of the handlebar stem that we needed for Kathy’s bike we finally lucked out on our second item of the day.

Since it was near 12:30 we stopped at Burger King and we each had a small burger and small pop off their value board. Not only were we satisfied but we didn’t spend a whole lot of money on lunch. Before we left their parking lot we walked over to the dollar store to get a bunch of things on our list for both the apartment and the trailer. 
Nice Southwestern Salad with Chicken 
We finally made it back to the apartment where we worked on our computers until it was suppertime. Kathy made a wonderful salad topped with some of the chicken that I grilled on the Weber last week. After cleaning the dishes we were once again on our way out. Our destination was to the Forest Glade Arena. Most of you will remember our Grandson Tyler is quite active in junior hockey. Well their season is over for this year so in order to stay in shape he has enrolled in Lacrosse. 
Tyler got pushed into the boards.
The game was supposed to start at 6:00 but there was a delay. Even though there are differences in the two games there are also similarities. Instead of skating the players are constantly running from one end of the arena to the other and this is more of a contact sport than hockey is. This game will help to improve his already keen hand/eye coordination that will help his hockey games. By the end of the game Tyler had made two assists and a goal on his own and since most of the players are wearing less protective equipment than hockey he also had the battle marks to show for it. He’ll sleep well tonight.

Today was the last slow day we had for this week. Starting tomorrow we’ll be busy getting ready to leave on Friday for the Escapade in Indiana. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
