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.

Busy Social Saturday.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It seems that Kathy and I have an unwritten pact that if one of us doesn’t sleep right then neither does the other. Most of the time it is my restlessness or inability to sleep that keeps Kathy awake but not last night. Kathy was having difficulty to breathe through her nose which is not good for someone that uses a nose-pad mask connected to a CPAP machine to sleep. I woke when she got out of bed around 4:00 and went back to sleep when she returned. Unfortunately her stuffy nose didn’t allow for her to sleep in a laying down position. I watched as she got up at 6:00 to go sit in the living room recliner where she finally feel asleep. I remained awake and was making the bed by 6:15 this morning.
Kathy as a Chef and me as a Crusader.
Note Sanford making sure that we behave.
Due to her lack of sleep Kathy didn’t hear me slowly opening the curtains and getting things ready for breakfast on the counter. I had already finished my morning reading on the computer and started making the morning coffee at 8:45 when she finally woke up.
Once breakfast was finished we headed back to the computers for more reading. I made a point of getting my exercise in this morning since I overdid my cardio the other day. Just as I was about to hit the shower our friend Kathie called asking if we’d be able to bring Ross home from the hospital but that he was still waiting for his doctor to come in to release him. She said she’d call back when he was ready because she knew we were busy.
Kathy immediately started making a lite lunch so if I had to leave I wouldn’t be hungry. After eating I got my shower completed in short order. Kathy had already finished cooking the noodles and chopping the vegetables for the salad we are bringing to the party tonight by the time I returned. I helped her mix it all together and put it in smaller serving bowls. Next thing we did was wash all the dishes before I went outside to clean the back seat of the truck for passengers. I had just gotten back inside when the phone rang with Kathie telling us the doctor won’t be seeing Ross until tomorrow.
After having a lite snack in place of supper we headed to Kevin and Melissa’s in Amherstburg around 5:30. For the last four years they have held a family style Halloween Party in their garage totally decorating it for the occasion. Most times the kids are outside playing on the trampoline, swings and in the playhouse while the adults sit inside talking. With everyone bringing something to eat and drink it turns out to be a very festive night that is enjoyed by all. The assortment of costumes is always fun to see with lots of very original ideas. The only problem is there is so much to eat you are told to leave your diets at home for the evening and you waddle your way home.  
Will the real Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf please stand up?
With all the food it attracted some pests. 
Hopefully Kathy will sleep better tonight and be ready for a busy day tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
