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.

It All Clicked.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Another restful night’s sleep and I was once again laying in bed for nearly an hour before getting up before 6:30 this morning. I had finished my morning reading and started getting breakfast ready by the time Kathy woke up. We ate breakfast looking out the balcony door at the rain that was being driven by yet again another windy day. On the Weather Network they were showing videos of damage that was caused by yesterday’s wind throughout the southern portion of Ontario. More wind was forecasted for today but with less intensity.

We were out the door by 9:30 heading across town using Tecumseh Road. We seemed to be lucking out hitting green traffic lights all the way to the Credit Union where we needed to do some banking. I was the first in line for an entire minute when another teller opened up speeding up our transaction. Back on the road we were again cruising along with more green traffic lights until we arrived to the Walker Road Medical Plaza where I had an appointment. The lineup of traffic trying to get in was fairly long but it cleared just in time for me to make the turn.

When I saw the doctor he had already reviewed my file and was going to book me for testing in the New Year so I kind of fibbed and told him we are normally gone after Christmas Day until the end of April. (I didn’t tell him we were staying home this winter.) His receptionist was able to schedule my testing for next Tuesday because someone else had just cancelled.

It was still raining even though we had been inside for all of twenty-five minutes. That meant we had plenty of time to go back to the Passport Office in downtown Windsor. Again it just seemed that the traffic lights were helping us out and before we knew it we were arriving at our destination. The wind was really blowing so I dropped Kathy off at the door and told her to get our number in case other people would come in while I went to park the car. It was ten minutes before I got upstairs and the place was packed with people but Kathy was sitting down. There had only been two people ahead of her when she arrived and everyone else had piled in right after she’d gotten our placement ticket. I wasn’t even seated for a minute when we were called up. Fifteen minutes later and we were on our way to our next stop but with the intense wind I brought the car around to pick Kathy up.

We had to stop at the Medical Testing Building where I needed an information package for next weeks test. Part of the package included a prescription so on the way back to the apartment we stopped at Shoppers Drug Mart to drop off the script.

The rain had stopped but the wind had increased by the time we got back to the apartment. We had an enjoyable lunch before heading out for another round of errands. With our going Fulltime in the spring we won’t be able to transport our plants across the International Border so Kathy has been giving them away to good homes. Our next stop was at our friends Kathie and Ross’s apartment where we delivered our last plant and spent an hour visiting and catching up with them.

When we left there were more things we needed to do and the first was a stop at Walmart where Kathy needed to replace her hair dryer that suddenly stopped working last night. We got some store walking in since the weather outside was not very pleasant. We also picked up a few other food stocks before heading out.

We traveled to Princess Auto where I returned the Hitch Pins I’d gotten for the Solar Panel Lift Brackets the other day as the size would have weakened the brackets too much. When I went to look for alternative pins there were newer pins that had not been there the other night. They were perfect for what we needed and at a fraction of the price of the ones that I’d returned.

Our last stop was back at Shoppers Drug Mart to get my Prescription before heading home. It just seemed that everything we needed to accomplish today just clicked in place for us and didn’t take nearly the amount of time we thought it would.

For supper we finished the Lasagna Kathy made yesterday. The 6 o’clock News spoke of multiple terror attacks in Paris. Why can’t people just live in Peace? The wind is still rattling our windows. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


The World's Great Proverbs

Little things please little minds.


  1. Imagine, world peace. We'll likely not see it in our life time. I believe if they took away the manmade drugs being used to alter minds of the young, we'd see less of the horrible attacks. Your busy day wore me out! Great blog, do enjoy it.

  2. That a lots or running around in one day.

  3. It just makes me sick hearing the report about Paris. We watched it live yesterday. So many people are just down-right nuts!

    I would need a nap after all that running around.

  4. Whew.. what a day!
