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.

When I got up at 7:30 this morning it was impossible to imagine how many times the Clouds would change the appearance of the Sky today. The first picture of the day was taken before the Sun crested the eastern Mountain Range giving the appearance of a Bright Sunny Day. The next picture did not disappoint with a glare that brought out all the colours of the spectrum. I was certain that Kathy would enjoy seeing this.
Since she is dealing with Sinus Issues and not sleeping too soundly it was nearly 8:30 by the time she got up. The only way that I could work at the Computer had been to lower the Two main Window Shades. Now sitting at the table to have breakfast imagine my surprise when I looked outside to see such a thick Cloud Covering that it appeared the Sun had already set. Moving our Coffee/Tea over to the Computers and looking towards the windows the Sun was putting on a show for us playing with the Clouds.
I was very honoured while reading the Comments this morning that Joe from Somewhere in Time who happens to be a very Talented Artist asked permission to paint some of our pictures. We put them in the Blog for everyone to see or use as they see fit. We are more then happy to share what we are seeing first hand.
Another Comment from JB from John & Brenda’sIncredible Journey explaining that the Lower Grades of Gasoline contain Ethanol which attracts moisture. John also said he uses nothing but High Test in his Generator for exactly that reason. Thanks John for verifying what Wayne suspected to be our problem.
After completing our Inside Chores we made plans for this afternoon. We’d had a lite breakfast so in order to get an earlier start Kathy first made Toast on the stove then made a Provolone Cheese Omelette that we shared. The taste was wonderful and topping it off with a Yogurt Cup for dessert we were soon heading out the door.
Selling Hats?????
Our destination was the Tyson Wells Vendors Area. With a clear Blue Sky overhead we were able to snag a roadside parking spot. While emptying our Waste Barrel on Tuesday I damaged one of our Twist-On Gate Valves. Having priced them at the Big Tent and at RV Lifestyles for Wayne I knew that I could find a better one at a lower price at K&B Tools. That only took a couple of minutes to accomplish but we planned to do more walking.
No more Cows Heads for sale this year. 
After putting our purchases in the Truck we headed across the road to see which vendors were still around. There were empty spots where many had already pulled out but we kept walking. Most of the Vendors in this area had stayed past the middle of February last year. We shared a Smoothie and each purchased a T-Shirt before calling it a day.
After doing all that walking and having not really planned what we would have for supper we decided to go to Taco Mia where we had their “All you can eat Fish Dinner”. Since we have been cutting back on our portions neither of us ordered anything extra nor did we finish our Fries.
As we were leaving someone was outside trying to see if there was any produce that might have fallen off the Delivery Truck. It seemed that he was more scared of the workers but sat calmly and posed for us.

Love the reflections off the windows.
Back at La Posa South LTVA there was a lot more empty space then yesterday. The Clouds were again starting to build a wall around the Sun creating interesting patterns throughout the Sky.
It’s hard to believe that January is finished already and we will soon be counting down our days before we have to head back to Ontario but we are glad we are not there right now. The Great Lakes Region is experiencing Temperatures colder then Antarctica and Mount Everest. Like I said we are glad to be here. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Words of Inspiration

All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen.

  1. You should be happy for sure! It's the worst cold I've ever felt. We all have colds now, go figure, but are staying hunkered inside and hibernating on weekends. Good weather to cook and organize. I don't mind the cold usually, but man, this is really extreme! Hope you are sucking in the sun while you can. xo

  2. I like all the cloud pictures so amazing what colors come through.

    I sure have no complaints about the weather here. But my May I'm sure I will be very unhappy.

  3. What and honor for someone to want to use your photos for art.
