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.

Transferring Plants and Bad News

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We both woke up around 8:00 this morning after sleeping so soundly it felt like we’d been drugged. Neither of us use any kind of medication to sleep but we had a hard time focusing on the Weather Network while we had our breakfast. Looking outside the balcony doors the sky was filled with threatening clouds but the forecast said we’d be dry until at least Monday. We were in the process of finishing our coffees while we did our morning reading on the computers when we suddenly heard rain pelting against the window. The weather guessers didn’t get this one right so we had to rethink our plans to work outside. 

Since we’ve been going south for the winter our neighbor Kelly has been taking care of our two houseplants and in the summer when she goes away Kathy cares for her cat. Kathy gives Kelly instructions on how to care for the plants and each spring when we return they have both grown larger. Today Kathy started the process of transplanting the plants to larger pots but in the middle of moving her Philadandrum she realized we didn’t have enough potting soil. 

Luckily the rain had just stopped and I was able to be back at the apartment in less than twenty minutes even though the local police were detouring traffic around a single car accident. Somehow the car had no visible damage but was straddling a ditch supported on both its bumpers. By the time I got back to the apartment Kathy had already transplanted her Bamboo plant but also needed additional stone for it. Together we finished the first plant by installing a much taller Trellis to give it additional support. 

By then we stopped for lunch and the Weather Network again told us about the clear weather we’d be having today just as the rain started again. 

There are some hardcopy records that I have been wanting to record on the computer for some time. I always said I’d save that chore for a rainy day so I spent the next four hours getting a bit of that recorded. 

Our friend Vera called to talk to Kathy about Bill. He’d had the surgery to remove the blood from his brain last Sunday. Yesterday’s MRI showed they were successful and there is no further bleeding but he presently cannot  talk. The doctors are hopeful this is only a temporary setback. 

My sister Anna E-mailed us that our niece’s mother-in-law had lost her fight with Pancreatic Cancer. The funeral arrangements have not been finalized at this time. 

For supper I grilled a couple of hamburgers on the Weber Q while Kathy prepped the sides in the kitchen. We’re hoping tomorrow’s weather is better than today’s. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
