It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Errands Galore, Power Washing The Patio and Kathy Gets Sick.

Our Location today is at Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After having a restless night’s sleep, we were both upstairs shortly after 9:00 having breakfast. Since Kylla is on the afternoon shift at work and that she also tends to baby Sanford we didn’t even see him this morning. We didn’t spend too much time on the Computers mainly to just check our E-mail and The Weather Network before heading out the door.

We needed to make a few stops the first at the Credit Union to do some banking. Our next stop was Home Depot where I went to get a Floor Squeegee that we forgot the other day while Kathy went to the Instore Subway outlet to get a sandwich for our lunch. I was delayed because the aisle that those tools were supposed to be in was incorrect but it made for perfect timing. Kathy had just gotten to the car and started telling me that the lone Subway employee had just been given an order for Fifty Submarine Sandwiches plus he was trying to serve the other walk-in customers as well. Kathy reminded him to breath and she got him to smile. Leaving there since we had to drive by we stopped to collect our Mail at Guardian Storage. 
You can see the Stains on the Patio from this angle.
We were back at our site at Wildwood Golf and RV Park around 11:00 and we immediately started removing things from our Garden Shed so we could get our Painting Supplies Bin out. Taking only what we would need and replacing the rest in the Shed. I managed to walk our Picnic Table with the Gazebo Box on it from the Patio to the crushed stoned driveway. There were other things that had to be moved as well including the Brick Garden Edging that was actually sitting on the Patio itself. Kathy had finished removing the Winter Jackets from our Golden Cedar Trees that had protected them from heavy snowfalls that would have broken their branches. 
Using the Pressure Washer the Patio was soon clean.
It was nearly 12:30 by this time so we stopped to have lunch. Taking our Bistro Set from inside the Shed we rested while we ate. The Sun was shining with only a slight breeze because there were only a few clouds but the temperature was only 52 F (11 C).

When we left last fall it had been Raining and we had no idea just how dirty our Patio was. Starting in one corner with the Pressure Washer then working my way along you could actually see the difference as we removed the built-up Dirt and Stains. Kathy went behind me with the Squeegee to remove the excess water. At 2:30 we were using the Stain Remover that was put on using a small Watering Can then scrubbed into the Stains. When we closed up shop after 4:00 we were looking at a totally different looking Patio. We have to leave it dry out and tomorrow is looking like a great day to apply the Textured Cement Paint. 
Taco Salad.
We were both tired and surprisingly hungry by that time and since we weren’t in the mood for Fast Food we went to Gilligan’s in Amherstburg for our supper. Kathy had a Taco Salad while I had a Chicken Wrap with Fries. The food was delicious, the atmosphere relaxing and the seats were comfortable. We called this our early Birthday Celebration. 
Chicken Wrap and Fries.
It was past 5:30 when we drove over to Kevin and Melissa’s for our Weekly Visit. We were hearing all about the wedding they attended last week and having a good time until Kathy started feeling ill. Not what we expected but we had to say Good Night and head back to Tecumseh early. 
Cloudy sky with increased winds.
Kathy has Medical Tests in the morning, then either both of us or just myself will be getting at least one coat of Paint on the Patio tomorrow. Thanks for following along, feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
