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.

Watching and Looking.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Something totally wonderful happened last night. With the windows cracked open and the 46 F (8 C) temperature we again slept with the covers on all night. We both slept soundly and woke up feeling refreshed this morning. Watching the Weather Network during breakfast we knew that we would be having a clear weather day. After finishing our coffees at the computer we barely finished our morning reading when we headed out the door.

We were on our way to the New Belle River Arena to watch our grandson Tyler play hockey. Remembering how cold it was inside last weekend we stopped at Tim Horton’s and picked up a couple of hot chocolates that would not only warm us up but help tide us over until lunch.

Our daughter Karen arrived before the game started and we got to talk for a bit. Once the puck hit the ice all eyes were on the action. With the players being moved around to different teams it made it so the teams were evenly matched. Tyler was playing defense for his team but still managed a couple of breakaways and even got a few shots on the opposing team’s net but scored no goals today. It was a game that kept you on the edge of your seat because there were only a few stops in the play. The final score was tied at one each. 

When we got back home we had soup for lunch before Kathy went to the computer while I went out to work on the car. I’ll need to use a grinder in order to remove a bracket so that will happen later this week. Kathy called me through our open balcony door when it was time to come in. Being the car was only twenty feet away she only had to stand by the door and call my name. 

Yesterday we’d contacted a couple of realtors and made appointments to meet with them this afternoon. One called this afternoon in hopes of moving the appointment ahead which suited us just fine. We stopped at the Subway around the corner and picked up a sandwich that we’d later share for our supper. We arrived at 3:35 at the appointed address and met Roberto. He walked us through the property and answered all our questions. This place was quite roomy and priced to move but it would take a bit of work to clean up. After leaving we now had time to have supper and walk around the community building before our next appointment. Debbie was the next agent we met. She also answered all our questions about the property we looked at which was very clean but the floor plan just was too tight for our furniture. These two units we looked at would not be suitable for us. Even though we are looking we are also considering other options. 

We were home by 6:10 and able to catch the last of the evening news. Everything is moving so fast and we have a lot to get done this week. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Witty Words of Wisdom

Time flies like an arrow.

Fruit flies like a banana.


  1. We keep checking out different options over the years, but are not ready to settle down yet.

  2. They say you need to look at about 6 properties before you find the one for you. Keep the faith.

  3. Does this mean that you are looking into buying a home now?
