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.

After yet another Birthday Celebration last night we could barely keep our eyes open while reading on the Computers. Once we had been asleep only a short time I woke up and tossed for a bit before falling back to sleep. That happened at least Five Times so by the time I woke this morning I was feeling far from rested. That’s when I suspected that the Two Large Cups of Tea we had last night were not Decaffeinated. Years ago that would not have mattered but not lately.

After getting things ready for breakfast and checking The Weather Network it wasn’t long before Kathy joined me downstairs. She appeared to have had the same kind of night that I had but because of the pain in her shoulders.
Perfect weather for the Day Lilies.
I changed the way we both felt with the simple words “Happy Anniversary” and a smile appeared on her face. Today is our Eighteenth Wedding Anniversary and it took us both having another life before finding the true meaning of Love in each other.
We kept things simple this morning reading on the Computers, inside chores and making lunch. Even that was kept simple by having Split Pea with Ham Soup, a Cheese Stick and the piece of Birthday Cake we came Home with last night for our dessert.

We waited until after 1:00 before we headed out the door. Looking around lots of neighbours were visiting in the shade of their RVs on this cooler day. Lots more were busy putting up their Canadian Flags in preparation of Canada’s 152 Birthday tomorrow.
We headed to Guardian Storage to collect our Mail. Being that they were closed it was a simple process of entering my Access Code and we were soon on our way.

We soon arrived at our daughter Rose’s house. It was quite a change from last year since they had installed a new High Efficiency Furnace, Central Air Conditioning and Water Heater. Not only was it much more comfortable but she noticed a dramatic decrease in her Utility Bills.

We were there for another reason as well. We didn’t find out that our grandson DJ was Graduating from Grade Eight until we were at the Grade Eight Graduation for our grandson Connor. Thinking that we couldn’t attend both Rose didn’t mention it to us. If we had known we would have attended both the same night. DJ will make good use of his Graduation Gift. We visited longer finding out about Rose’s schedule for this summer.
It was after 4:30 when we left and since this was our Special Day we debated where we should have supper. We decided to eat at Wendy’s where we splurged each having a Full Size Salad along a Small Chocolate Frosty and a Senior’s Soft Drink.

We arrived Home before 6:00 where the Computers once again showed us what was happening in the world. Our day went just the way we like it Quiet and Together. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
