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.

Eye Opener and Planning.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Last weekend I mentioned that I didn’t want to jinx how well we have been sleeping at night. Sleeping all last night didn’t happen for me because even though I tried to avoid taking a Tylenol to help me relax it was finally necessary after three hours of laying awake. 

We finally got up for breakfast just after 8:00 and were working away on our computers before 9:00. There were a number of unusual things that popped up that really caught our attention. One such thing was a video posted by Nancy on Travels with Mr. Nimble. This is a heartfelt video that everyone should see and it will inspire them that life is what you make of it no matter what cards you have been dealt. The title is Never Say Can’t. 

For lunch today Kathy chose that we make our own vegie/fruit/chicken wraps. Since I’m new to working in a kitchen it may take me longer to finely slice the ingredients but this allows Kathy to do other things like making her own dressing. Everything turned out great. 

We were soon discussing slight changes that I want to make for our next project for the trailer. I felt the original plan would have left it looking too rough and thrown together so with a few changes it will give it more structural integrity as well as dressing it up. Hopefully when we stain it the first time it will match what we finally ended up with on all the other cabinetry items. 

For supper we used the leftover grilled salmon from last night warmed on top of a cold pasta salad. A bit of Malt vinegar dressed it up beautifully. 

Being Wednesday after supper we headed to Amherstburg for our weekly visit with our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa. As usual we had a fun visit with them and the grandsons who are looking forward to going back to school next Tuesday. Something I know all parents are looking forward to as well because most will be doing a “Happy Dance.” 

As mentioned in yesterday’s post we only have one person to complete our Christmas shopping for and that is our grandson Cameron. His likes and dislikes are much different than ours so we actually have him make us a list of things that he might want. We couldn’t have been in the house two minutes and he brought out his list. Now with only 120 shopping days left before Christmas Kathy and I will be able to finish our shopping. 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

The "Elvis theme" of your wedding ceremony was unintentional.


  1. Just another fun day of retirement.

  2. Your first photo is so lovely. Looks like it belongs in a frame.
