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.

Cooking And Baking With Ups And Downs.


Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It was good to see the sun shining this morning making it almost tempting to go outside but when you watched the top of the trees bending way over and in the next instance watch carelessly disposed of trash blowing by you knew it would be an “Iffy” outdoor type of day. The Weather Network was again using the term Polar Vortex this morning and cautioning against colder than normal temperatures for this time of year.
After getting our reading finished early this morning Kathy started pulling things from the fridge with the thought of recreating them before they could spoil. Once it was determined what we were creating she got me busy chopping vegetables and meat that would find their way into a nice Split Pea Soup while she made our lunch. That was when Kathy started noticing a shortage of supplies needed to complete some of the other task. Armed with a list I was soon on my way to the nearby grocery store but ran into Dan the Building Manager where we exchanged views about yesterday’s potential tenant. He felt the same as Kathy and I had felt from the man’s reaction but he told me of another tenant wanting to relocate within the building.
At Metro grocery store it didn’t take long to get nearly everything needed on the list except the most important item of all. Due to the high winds I’d used the car and it was a good thing because now I had to drive over a mile to the Zehrs on Manning Road just to get the split peas. Someone must have been looking down on me thinking I needed a break because when I found the split peas they were on two for the price of one so we’ll be making more soup in the future. Kathy had finished her other cooking, washed the dishes and had started doing some baking all while I was gone. It didn’t take long to finish the last of the baking which included a Lemon Meringue and Pumpkin pies before she started cooking supper.
Now the fridge is full and we only have to heat our meals for the next few days so if we get involved in a project we don’t have to cook a big meal. Tomorrow should be one of those days. The wind is still blowing and the forecast is calling for possible flurries through tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time. 

Bet you can't tell that
Kathy and I have a bad
case of Hitch Itch.

 What's the definition of a will?

It's a dead giveaway.

  1. You two make me feel lazy. The only thing I cook at home these days are Lean Cuisines. It's paid off in some weight loss, but it's just not fun cooking for one person. I hope you won't mind if I put a very easy, but delicious recipe in your comments (feel free not to post). When we had the business Rich would run to the post office and this would be almost ready by the time he returned and he was always surprised and happy when he walked through the door. It stays moist and is heart healthy and such easy clean up!
