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.

Lots Accomplished, Explanations and Plans.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

I got carried away reading Blogs we follow last night and didn’t make it to bed until after 1:00. Being that my norm is before midnight it didn’t surprise me when a couple hours later I was busy tossing and turning. Medical Studies show that a Half Hour variance like that will affect your sleep routine. The only thing I could do was to walk around the Apartment look out the Window then go back to bed. That One Minute walk helped me to sleep until nearly 8:00.

I had barely gotten things ready when Kathy joined me for breakfast. The only plans we had were all around the Apartment so we settled in at the Computers to have our Coffee/Tea. Looking outside and checking The Weather Network it was certain we would be getting more Rain today so I didn’t sit too long.
By 10:00 my inside chores were finished and I headed outside to take pictures of the Truck’s Manufacturing Tag. For some reason the first time I did that the Tag was out of focus.

Ten Minutes later I was back in the Apartment working on shaping the Screen to go over the outside of the Air Conditioner Sleeve. For those that live in a House you will either have a Central Air Conditioner that circulates the air through your Duct Work or you have a Window Unit. In most High Rise Apartment Buildings (Four Stories or more) they have a Sleeve going through the outer wall that you the tenant inserts a Sleeve Type Air Conditioner. They cost more but our meant for these applications. Don’t get cheap and put a Window Unit in because the Sleeve will not let it breath properly and will start a Fire. Once the edges of the Screen were bent up it slipped right over the outside of the Sleeve. The Duct Tape we purchased the other day sealed it perfectly thus keeping Pollen, Seeds and Bugs from getting in the Apartment and clogging the AC.

Kathy had been busy rearranging our Linen Closet. Towels, Winter and Summer Sheets had been getting mixed so using a technique she found on You Tube we now have plenty of space and all the sets are together.
Hard to see but it is Raining.
We hadn’t started making lunch when the Clouds started drenching everything in sight. The Rain was actually bouncing a couple feet off the pavement.
Kathy made Lou’s Kitchen Pulled Pork Sandwiches for lunch. Someone asked a while back where they were made. According to the label Lou’s Kitchen is located out of Stoney Creek, Ontario Canada. The best part is there’s enough for another Sandwich each. We also had our dessert plates to round off our meal.

Since it was still Raining I went back to the Computer and added all our Medications we picked up from our Pharmacist in Amherstburg yesterday onto our Medication Spreadsheet that I keep track of every Tablet, Pill or Capsule we have in our possession. The Rain had finally stopped but I started getting all our Receipts logged into our Expenditure Spreadsheet to keep track of our spending.
Today's afternoon temps.
It was nearly 4:00 when I had everything Saved and Backed Up. While I was reading a few more of the Blogs we follow from this morning it was Kathy that needed a Snap.
While Kathy made the dessert plate with an Apple that we shared, a Yogurt Cup and Fruit Cake I was busy making us an Omelette that had finely diced Onion and Celery with Cheddar Cheese that we shared.
Clear evening.
Watching the 6 o’clock Local News we were told that we’ll be actually seeing Spring Temperatures for a few days. We watched an NCIS episode for something different. Tomorrow we’ll be seeing our daughter-in-law in the afternoon. Let you know about that then. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Words of Inspiration

I have learned that there is more power in a good strong hug than in a thousand meaningful words.

  1. I have a struggle every night sleeping. I never sleep longer than 2 hours at a time. Not fun but I don't want to take any medication so I somehow just manage. Looks like we are getting a system come thru here today and tomorrow including high winds, hail and lots of rain. Best get my walk done early today.

  2. Weather seems to be crazy everywhere! Enjoy your spring temps while you can! Your omelette looks delicious!

  3. I can recommend the app "genius scan" we've been using it for years and it allows you to take a picture in PDF (adobe) form then you can email it to yourself for later reference or to someone else (ie we used it when selling our house) - just print and sign docs then take pic of signed docs and email back to realtor. It's such a handy app and we use it all the time for almost everything. Allows us to keep pdf copies of important documents on all computers and via icloud auto backup... also in the cloud - accessible from anywhere.
