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 we heard the Rain tapping on our roof this morning we were in no hurry to get out of bed. When the light tried sneaking around our Window Shades that was when I figured it was time to start my day. Having left the Blue Flame Heater on its lowest possible setting overnight the only thing I could do was raise the setting in order to take the chill out of the air.

When Kathy joined me for breakfast before 8:30 I wished her a Happy Birthday. As we ate I was surprised to see someone pulling a large Fifth Wheel out our rear window on Third Street. He wasn’t passing through but started making quite a number of attempts to back it in to a Site for the season. It seemed that he was alone so that probably added to his frustration.
Our Weather most of the day.
As soon as we sat at the Computers to enjoy our Coffee/Tea the first thing I checked was The Weather Network. They were forecasting more Cool to Cold Days and Nights for the next Two Weeks. As soon as my Hot Drink was finished I headed upstairs to get my inside chores completed before getting dressed and heading outside.

It seemed strange that as soon as I stepped foot outside the Rain stopped. Since we started going to the Southwest we learned to carry a Spare Propane Tank because we use it for Cooking, Heating, running our Hot Water Heater as well as running the Fridge. Still using it mostly the same now we didn’t want the Tanks to go Empty so I switched the Empty with our Full Spare Tank. When that was done I also removed the Debris Brush from the back of the Truck.

Starting to feel cold I headed back inside to warm up. I had no sooner shut the Door when the Rain started coming down heavier then before. Lunch was a bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup and a Yogurt Cup for dessert.

With the Rain not slowing down we spent most of the afternoon at the Computers until 4:30 when we dawned our Raincoats and headed out the Door. Our destination was the Michigan Dinner on Manning Road in Tecumseh where our daughter Karen had invited us to celebrate Kathy’s Birthday. She arrived with Tyler our grandson exactly at 5:15 as scheduled.
After enjoying a wonderful meal we were invited back to the house to have a cup of Tea to warm us up. Sanford was more then happy to see us and immediately brought up his latest Toy that we recently gave to him. Besides the Tea Karen also had a Small Black Forest Cake to celebrate Kathy’s Birthday and a Salted Caramel Cake to celebrate my Birthday this coming Wednesday. We had a wonderful visit and truly appreciated her trying to brighten up this rainy day.

We drove over to the Zehr’s grocery store where we picked up a few things that Kathy needs for a recipe that she wants to try. It was after 9:00 by the time we got Home and most of the Streets in the Park were like streams with water running down to the Water Hazards on the Golf Course.

Since we had shut all our Heaters before leaving they were the first thing we turned back on. The outside temperature only reached 45 F (7 C) today and that is what the temperature is forecasted for tomorrow. We can’t wait for the Real Spring to arrive. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
