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.

Starting to Stock Up and A Spy Comedy.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Before going to bed last night Kathy expressed that she was really tired from all the errands we ran so I told her to just sleep in. I was up shortly after 7:30 this morning and had all the Window Shades up along with getting things ready for breakfast. Let’s just say Kathy listened to what I said and practically came running downstairs when she looked at the time on the clock upstairs.

With there actually being a Windchill this morning it was strange seeing the Golfers and Walkers wearing Long Pants and Jackets. Some of the Walkers were even wearing Gloves. Listening to the Wind rattle our Slide Toppers and the occasional gust jarring the Trailer told us it was time to pull out warmer clothes. It’s still summer for a couple of weeks isn’t it? 
What our weather looked like all day.
Once we’d finished with breakfast and our Eyedrops we took our Coffees to the Computers. Kathy’s new Drops seemed to be helping her Eyes much more than the Visine that was making her Eyes feel constantly dry. Since I’d already finished most of my reading I turned my attention to the Medication Spreadsheet where I keep track of all our Medication and Vitamins. Since I fill our Pill Doucettes every 45 Days I’m not tied down doing it every Saturday evening. What I had to make certain was that I will have enough Vitamins to complete the task on Monday. We also bring all our Vitamins and Medications that we’ll need while we are away so I also marked down how many of what we need to get before leaving. 

For lunch we kept it lite by having Split Pea Soup with Ham with Grapes for dessert. Even though we had left the Windows closed the Soup helped to warm us up. It was shortly after lunch that we headed out not only to break the onset of Cabin-Fever but to do more errands.

We headed for Amherstburg to do some shopping. Kathy had planned on going to Walmart but I had other plans. We went to Shoppers Drug Mart where I used the List of Vitamins from this morning to stock up on especially if they were “On Sale” but only got what was needed if they weren’t. Kathy went to find a few cosmetics that she needed while I did that. We also picked up another bottle of the Systane Eyedrops that the Optometrist recommended yesterday.

We were right next door to the No Frills grocery store so we picked up a few things that we need now and stocked up on a few others we’ll be bringing south with us.

We finally made it to Walmart where we did more walking then anything else but we still walked out with a couple of packages of Precooked Spareribs. They are precooked so reheating them on the grill is easy, seasoned and cost less than the fresh cut ones but when they are “On Sale” like they were again today hard to beat. One package feeds the both of us. We also picked up a snack that would satisfy us enough that we skipped supper.

Back Home after the groceries were put away and I had logged in all the Vitamins we decided to watch the movie “This Means War” with Reese Witherspoon. It was a Romantic Spy Comedy that kept us laughing. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. We have to stock up on medications before we head out and it gets interesting trying to figure it all out. But our real issue is making sure we have enough of the dogs' medications.

  2. There are Systane Ultra eye drop sample bottles the Eye Surgeons have to give out. Also coupons without expiry date. But if you run out and can't get any in the states, maybe they have "hydraSense" which is a very good product I found.
    Nothing like a good movie on a cold and rainy evening, isn't it?

  3. It's so hard to believe that all our friends are getting ready to head South..seems as everyone just got home! How time flies. Sounds like a great movie and I love Reese Witherspoon..great actress!

  4. I don't think I even know what medications and vitamins I take. Len fills the daily pill containers. Thinking I need to keep on his good side.

    Yea, cooler weather coming soon. Fine with me.
