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.

Research, Woodworking, Soccer.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

You just can’t beat sleeping with the windows open at night unless it is well below freezing or way too hot to sleep comfortably. By 7:00 I was once again well rested and opening curtains and blinds to increase the air flow. Kathy was soon to follow again feeling well rested. Why were we up so early? Who knows! Did we have to go anywhere early today? No! Why do we have this attitude? Because we’re retired.

After having breakfast and completing our morning reading Kathy returned to researching things we’ll be seeing on our return trip next year. The reason she does that is so we won’t miss things we really want to see because nobody knows for sure if they will get a chance to go back to that particular place to see what you thought you’d like to see next time. Too much happens in everyone’s lives and there is no certainty of what tomorrow brings.

I went back to work on the breadbox and drawer for the trailer. When you purchase hardware for your projects everything comes with a standard length of screws. This proved to be the first problem because for the same drawer pull I needed longer screws for the drawer and shorter ones for the breadbox door. Searching through my supplies I was able to find the shorter screws but would have to buy the longer ones later. After mounting the magnetic latch and drawer glides I needed to do some unplanned modifying on the breadbox with a wood chisel in order to mount the hinges.

We did leave the apartment this afternoon stopping at the Dollar Store, Walmart and finally the Home Depot checking a number of things from our shopping list. Back at the apartment we enjoyed the Lasagna dinner that Kathy bake yesterday with a wonderful salad that she made up today.

This evening we return to the Ford Test Track at 8:00 to watch our Grandson Matthew’s soccer team play against the Windsor Police Department’s Mixed Soccer Team under the stadium lights. Of course as you can imagine there are more restrictions imposed against the senior teams as there playing against the juniors. This allows these kids to play against a much higher skill level of players than they normally do and gives them an experience they will remember for the rest of their lives. The players were even allowed to sit behind the wheel of the squad car after the game was over for pictures. 
Matthew really impressed with the squad car.
Once I assemble the trailer projects tomorrow I’ll see what I can do at the trailer. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
