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.

Computer Problems, Simple Tasks and A Birthday Celebration.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

A few days ago, the Weather Guessers mentioned that we’d be seeing a comfortable cool down in our area and we were actually looking forward to that happening so we could shut the Air-Conditioner off and open the Windows for a while. Now that cool down has been reposted to show only a few degrees which means that for people with breathing issues it’s still going to be hot out there.

After working at planting those trees yesterday there were a few more body aches just crying for a couple more minutes in bed. I watched as the numbers on the clock flipped to 8:00 this morning before getting out of bed. I had the Window Shades up, Breakfast just shy of serving and half my morning Reading done before Kathy finally stirred. With nothing pressing to do today there was no rush for her to get up.

While on the Computers Kathy was changing from one Blog to another when her laptop indicated she was no longer connected to the Internet. We’ve had issues with the Cable WiFi in the Park disconnecting us quite a bit lately but today it was only her Computer. She continued her reading on my Laptop while I tried to get her’s back On-Line. The first thing I tried was to reboot the Computer which sometimes works with no luck. I then started checking settings of settings of settings again with no luck. Not having changed anything I was about to reboot it one more time when I looked at the Icon on the Toolbar that showed it to be On-Line. That Computer is way too sensitive and needs an adjustment that I’m not able to give it.

Shortly after 11:00 I headed outside to do the Weekly Chore of emptying our Waste Tanks. The Humidex was already at 91 F (33 C) and since we had plans for later I kept this outing short. While the Tanks were draining I pulled out the Garden Hose to give all our plants a good drink especially the newly planted ones. With both those chores completed I used the shovel to chop the chunks of Clay that were on the plastic tarp. What was dry I used the pails the trees had come in to fill this fine Clay into before loading them in the truck. 

I had encouraged Kathy to let me grill something outside instead of her heating the inside of the trailer for our lunch. We each had two Hotdogs since we didn’t have anything else to eat with them. 
This storm front went right past our Park and Essex.
Returning outside again the chopped chunks of Clay were noticeable dryer so I chopped it even finer with the shovel. Some might say that’s a waste of time doing that to materials we’re getting rid of but try lifting a bucket of dry Clay compared to moisture laden Clay and see how your back feels. 
D.J. opening his Birthday Gifts.
We spent most of the afternoon inside until nearly 4:30 when we headed out. Looking at the sky to the east we thought for certain the we were about to get the Severe Thunderstorms the Weather Guessers had also forecasted. Not wanting the Clay to get wet if it did rain I simply folded the tarp over it. We stopped at McDonalds in Essex where we each had the Sweet Chili Wrap for supper. 

We arrived at our daughter-in-law Jen’s Home just before 5:00 for another special visit. Our grandson D.J. who is spending the summer with his cousins was celebrating his 12th Birthday. Our daughter Rose on leave from Camp Borden for the weekend and Munaf had driven out to add to the celebration. Being an only child D.J. has been learning what it’s like sharing not only time but privelages with Haigan (10 three weeks ago) and Connor (12 in October). Jen has done a great job of keeping the boys busy doing things that they can only do at this time of year in a near Rural Setting. After Gifts were opened, Candles extinguished and Cake with Ice Cream eaten the kids had the chance to play while the adults visited. We’ll be getting together again soon. 

We were Home by 8:30 to a dry Patio and immediately went inside to start reading the evening Blogs we follow. With the next two days being forecasted by the Weather Guessers as dry we’ll see what we can do. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
