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.

It didn’t take long for both of us to fall asleep after getting to bed last night. Kathy managed to sleep the entire night not waking until this morning while I am struggling to write the Blog due to the Five Hours that were spent awake. I finally fell back to sleep after 6:00 only to be wide awake before 8:00.
Inside our Gazebo with No Lights.
I’d barely opened The Weather Network on my Computer when Kathy started making her way downstairs. With the heavy Cloud cover that we were experiencing that early in the day there was no doubt that the forecast for Rain would be accurate. The system that would be affecting us today had stretched all the way up from Texas bringing lots of severe weather including Tornadoes along the way.
Installing Lights.
After finishing our only cup of Coffee/Tea this morning we were out the door to do what we could to finish setting up our Patio. The morning temperature was nearly 80 F by 10:00 but the Wind made it feel cooler. After I pulled out the Boxes that the Fairy Garden Characters had all been carefully stored last Fall Kathy started making our Garden come to life again.
Lights installed.
I had another chore instead. We occasionally like to visit under the Gazebo at night and it came become quite dark. Last year we installed a Solar Powered LED Chandelier but it could have been just a bit brighter. This year we are adding Two Sets of Solar Powered LED String Lights that will just brighten the Gazebo a little more.
After Kathy finished her Fantasy Land she began feeling a few sprinkles of Rain and Wind that was gusting to 39 MPH we closed up shop and headed inside for lunch. By the time we were inside the temperature had dropped to near 60 F and the Rain had started coming down heavier.
It was nearly 1:00 when Kathy made up a wonderful Garden Salad for lunch and more Bing Cherries for dessert that would tide us over. This would give us our nutrition but not fill us up.
Here at Wildwood Golf and RV Park volunteers put on Small Benefits that help raise monies that will be used to make improvements for everyone to use. Since it was Raining we drove over to the Clubhouse where they were having an Ice Cream Social today. Another advantage of doing it today was there were a lot of the Weekend Campers and their Families also taking advantage of this Social.
Back Home we spent the rest of the afternoon getting caught up on the reading we didn’t do this morning.
Around 4:30 Kathy started making Bacon, Tomato and Cheese on Toasted Rye Sandwiches along with Creamy Coleslaw for our supper topped off with a Sugar-Free Fruit Cup for dessert.
Many Fields looking like this.
As soon as we finished washing the Dishes we were headed out of the Park on our way to our Daughter’s house in Tecumseh. The Rain seemed to increase the further we went and many Farmers Fields looked like Small Lakes.
We had barely pulled up in front of the house when we saw Sanford’s face appear in the Side-Light. As soon as he recognized us you could see the Tail wagging the Dog. We had an Enjoyable Visit with Karen and Sanford because everyone else was out visiting with friends. We also helped to recover the Pool Cover that the High Wind had carried Several Hundred Feet from its storage box. The only thing that had stopped it from leaving the yard was all the Rain that had weighed it down.
Tonight’s low will be dropping to the Mid-Fifties and will be the high for tomorrow. Welcome to our Roller-Coaster Ride. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
