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.

Hot Humid and Stormy.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Sleeping in lately has not been a problem for neither Kathy nor I. It was after 8:00 this morning when we got up to have our breakfast. In the process of eating we also watched the Weather Channel on the television and what they were showing was not a pretty picture. The Humidex for the day would be well above the century mark along with the chance of severe afternoon thunderstorms. 

As usual we headed to the computers to get caught up on our morning reading. Once that was finished we both started our own line of research about things we needed to do. Even with the extremely warm conditions outside Kathy suggested that we have an early lunch and go do some shopping inside an Air Conditioned store. 

After lunch we ended up at Walmart. With the shopping we had done the other day Kathy was more on track of what she needed to buy so we could scratch more gifts off of our Christmas list. It took well over an hour but by the then we are now down to only shopping for one more person. That’s not too bad considering there are only 121 more shopping days left. Because of power glitches to their computers we were delayed in checking out. Once that was completed I put our purchases in the truck while Kathy went to the in-store McDonald’s and got a couple of coffees and muffins for us to have a snack. That helped refresh us to carry on with grocery shopping that would take another hour to complete because of another power glitch. 

When we got back to the apartment building there were no shopping carts available so Kathy helped with a few lighter bags until we got inside our apartment. Leaving her with the frozen foods to put away I made two more trips to get everything in. Our timing seem perfect because shortly after we had finished putting things away we sat at the computers to cool down. That was when we started hearing rumbles of thunder outside. Opening the curtains we had closed to keep the heat of the sun out we were looking at black skies with pouring rain and a continuing display of lightning. For the next couple of hours the rain continued and the Weather Channel was flashing warnings across the screen for our area. 

Once the storm calmed I grilled a wonderful Salmon Fillet low and slow on the Weber while Kathy reheated the Spanish rice from last light and then she microwaveda couple ears of corn that we had bought today. The meal was delicious and there’s still some salmon left over that Kathy is already planning to use for lunch tomorrow.  Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. No storm here, just a sunny hot day, under a big willow tree reading with a nice breeze and a dip in the pool after mowing some lawn, perfect summer day.
