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.

Senior Expo, Shopping, Staining and Supper.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After the rain finally stopped last night we were able to shut down the Air Conditioner and open all the windows a bit. With the temperature dipping to nearly 50 F (10 C) that is why we only left them open a bit. I slept so well that I was wide awake before 7:00 this morning and seeing only bright sunshine with no clouds in the sky I immediately opened the windows full. Kathy slept in until after 7:30 before joining me for breakfast. 

It didn’t take long and we were on our way to the WFCU arena to attend a Seniors Expo. This was only the second time that they had put this on as far as we could tell but last year we didn’t attend because I had just had my hernia surgery a few days before. We were there before 8:30 expecting it to be crowded for the 9:00 opening but upon taking a closer look at the sign found out that it didn’t open until 10:00. 

Instead of being bored just sitting there we headed over to the east end Home Depot where I picked up a few different things that I needed to finish the breadbox and drawer for the trailer. We even went across the street to the Tim Horton’s and got a couple coffees to go. 

We still spent nearly twenty minutes of sitting in the WFCU parking lot enjoying our coffees waiting for the doors to open. There was a lot of interesting things for seniors as far as health care assistance, things to do to your homes to make them last longer, cosmetics for the women and even the Humane Society with pets available for adoption. They had free information packages and raffle tickets that you only had to fill in and drop off. We took our time looking and rechecking a few things but we were there less than thirty minutes because the location was less than twenty thousand square feet. 

If any of you have ever attended any kind of Seniors Expos while in the US you know there will be people from every state and province in attendance this did not have that. In the US people would be lined up for blocks to get in this did not have that. In the US people had places they could sit and enjoy the entertainment this had neither. They didn’t have anything to do with the RV Lifestyle there either. As Kathy said once you have been to one of these in the US there is no comparison. 

We went over to the nearby Walmart where we planned on getting a few groceries as well as doing some walking. Because there is only 187 days left before Christmas we started mulling different ideas around and before we knew it we were checking a few more Christmas gifts off our list besides the groceries that we actually came to buy. 

It was nearly 1:00 before we sat down to eat lunch back at the apartment and Kathy was starting to feel light headed because of her diabetes. Once we finished eating I called Lars the gentleman interested in purchasing my racing bike. Since he has no vehicle to come and get the bike he will pay me to deliver it which is about a mile from our son Kevin’s in Amherstburg. 

Afterwards I change my clothes before I returned to the balcony to add a second coat of stain to the breadbox and drawer face for the trailer projects. Kathy continued putting away the groceries while I was busy outside. Early hours getting up are not Kathy’s friend so she laid back for a short nap (Snap) while I got caught up on the morning reading that I hadn’t done. 

Kathy had just started baking a small sized Lasagna in the oven when the phone rang. It was Karen our daughter inviting us out for belated Mother’s and Father’s Day supper. Last week she was busy taking our granddaughter Kylla to the Hospital Emergency after she injured her ankle trying a stunt on her skate board. So we waited until the Lasagna was finished baking before going to pick Karen and grandson Tyler up to go for supper. The meal was great and much appreciated but the company and conversation was the best. Thank You again Karen and Tyler. 

Back at the apartment it was time to bring in the woodwork and leave it cure overnight. Since we ate out tonight guess what we’ll be having for a couple of meals? Yummy lasagna! Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
