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.

Still Trying.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Sleeping in slightly later is getting to be a habit we can both live with. It was after 8:00 this morning before we started getting breakfast ready. Watching the Weather Channel we noted that we will continue to get temperatures that have Humidexes near the century mark for the next few days.
Once we’d finished our morning reading I headed back out to the balcony. Today’s chore was to restain the wood panels and breadbox that I had sanded yesterday. Armed with a different stain I did a few test strips on the backside of one of the panels. Once it had dried enough that we were satisfied with the finish I carried on. I managed to do the backs of all the door and drawer panels before doing the outside of the breadbox.
Kathy had been busy making lunch which seemed to appear on the table just as I finished doing what staining I could. I would later check to find that the wind had delivered a large amount of pollen in the air that had attached itself to the still sticky panels.
After the supper dishes were finished I was able to go back out on the balcony and restain the other side of the door panels before bringing them in for the night. By placing them on a plastic tarp in the living room in a direct line of the Air Conditioner I can be certain that they’ll be totally dry by morning. If they need another coating of stain at that time I will do it.

We once again went to watch our grandson Matthew play his final soccer game of the season. This game also served as a fundraiser for next season helping to cut the costs to the families of this special league.  This particular game was scheduled back in July but had to be postponed due to severe thunderstorms that started in the afternoon and didn’t stop until after midnight. 

They were playing against the local coaches association as a team. For most of these kids it is something that they’ll remember for the rest of their lives playing against high caliber players like this. 

The mosquitoes were also out at tonight’s game so people on the side lines were busy doing more than watching and cheering on the game. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
