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.

Counting the Days.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

The morning was a slow start for both Kathy and I as we were both making up for the sleep we didn’t get through the night. Once we had finished breakfast and settled in at our computers things were starting to come into focus. 

It was shortly after 10:00 when my sister Anna called thanking us for the birthday wish we’d left on her phone. She had been busy for almost two weeks helping her daughter’s family getting settled into their new home. So it was only last night that she got back home to check her messages. We talked about our trip and my friend Ross’s heart attack. She also told us about a product that would help remove the odor of the wood stain from the breadbox once we refinish it. 

Shortly after saying good bye to Anna our daughter Karen called. She and Greg are taking Tyler to visit some friends in Kitchener before they go up to midland where they’ll stay for a week at a cabin that a friend is letting them use. She wasn’t sure if Kylla would be home tomorrow or Monday and she wondered if we could feed Sanford his supper and let him out in the backyard for a bit. It was nearly 11:00 by the time we got to Karen’s so she could show us where they keep Sanford’s food and I verified a task that she asked me to do. 

It was nearly 12:00 when we left to go back to the trailer. When we were there yesterday I had too much on my mind and it wasn’t until after we’d gotten home that I realized there were a number of things that I’d forgotten to retrieve. This only took ten minutes to accomplish gathering tools and supplies that I needed. 

By 12:30 Kathy’s head was starting to spin because of her diabetes so we stopped at Taco Bell where we used a coupon for an inexpensive well balanced lunch. From there we crossed the road to the east-end Home Depot to check what materials they carry so that I’ll soon be able to start making our next project for the trailer. I was very disappointed and know that I will go to the central location on Walker road because they carry a much greater selection. 

Our next stop was at Walmart where today the first thing we did was to get the Odor Sponge that my sister Anna had advised us about. With that completed we took the time to look around the store which helped us to get some exercise in a cool Air Conditioned environment. We also managed to cross a few more gifts off of our Christmas list for this year. With only a 138 shopping days left for the big event we don’t want to start feeling stressed. Last year Kathy had finished wrapping the last of those special gifts on August 4th so we are really slow this year. 

After unpacking everything at the apartment we sat down to talk for a short while and both ended up having Snaps. For supper I grilled pork chops on the Weber while Kathy made a wonderful macaroni and cheese dish. 

Tomorrow I’ve got to start getting things accomplished because it’s only 147 days left before we meet our friends Elaine and Rick in Moore Haven Florida. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

You've broken a promise, a heart, and wind during the same "happy hour."
