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.

Medical Test, Mall Walking and Cooking Supper.

Our Location today is at Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Even though Kathy slept fairly soundly last night with our having to set the alarm for an 8:00 wake up this morning she would be tired for the rest of the day. I’ve been having restless nights lately so it was no wonder when it felt like I might later need a Snap to keep going but managed to sneak by without it.

We were on our way to Windsor by 9:00 having just missed most of the morning Rush Hour Traffic. Kathy had a previously scheduled medical test and as was expected the place was packed. It used to be that you could only get these tests done in the Hospitals but more and more Independent Labs are being used. 

With the next few day’s temperatures applying the Paint to our Patio will have to wait. It’s now looking like it won’t happen until Monday when not only the temperatures but the overall weather will be perfect. 

 By 9:30 we were heading to the Devonshire Mall more for just something to do. We had planned on walking around but got sidetracked when we stopped at Lids. Since this winter Kathy has started wearing Ball Cap styled Hats and she thought maybe they might have something she would like. That was when the Clerk reminded her that they also made Custom Caps and since her It’s about time Visors and Caps are looking worn we each ordered a new Cap. 

It was going to take some time before they were ready so we walked around a few stores including the Dollarama. The Paint that we are using on our Patio is not cheap, so in order to clean out the containers as much as possible we purchased some low-priced Spatulas and Gloves that we can simply toss out when we are done. 

Having had a very lite breakfast this morning and it was past 11:00 we stopped at Taco Bell in the Food Court for their Value Meal for lunch. Back at Lids the Caps looked great and we were soon headed back to Tecumseh and Karen’s house.

We got caught up on our reading but around 2:00 we headed upstairs to make supper. We wouldn’t be eating for some time but we had things to get ready. While I was Cubing the Frozen Steak, Kathy was cutting the Peppers and Onions that would be part of her Pepper Steak Recipe. 

Once it was starting to render down nicely when Kathy sent me to Zehrs grocery store for Baking Supplies. It’s a good thing for Cell Phones because Kathy called just before I reached the Checkouts needing one more item. 

Back at Karen’s we worked together to make a Lemon Meringue Pie and an Apple Pie for dessert. We had a little laugh because when you work in a strange kitchen, things can get a little messy. When Greg walked in from work and didn’t know what was happening he had a shocked look on his face. Kathy simply told him we were making his supper. He smiled and walked away. We had the kitchen cleaned and the dishes all washed before the Pies were finished baking. 

We normally like to let our Pepper Steak meld all the flavours overnight but with limited space we let it rest for a couple of hours and started cooking the Rice, warming the Sauce and the Pepper Steak completing it just as Karen was coming in from work. Topping it off with Parmesan Cheese made it over the top and the Lemon Meringue Pie made it all worthwhile. 

With another appointment in the morning we’ll see what else we get into tomorrow. Thanks for following along, feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
