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.

Rain, Pharmacy Run, and More Then One Change Of Plans.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

Before going to bed last night I closed the Balcony Door for security reasons but left the Bedroom Window open to help keep us cool even though I knew there was a chance of Rain. Neither of us had any problem sleeping because we also had the Tower Fan blowing on us. As forecasted I woke to a Hard Rain hitting the open Window around 6:20. Since that is my side of the bed I had the Window shut in a flash without even disconnecting from my CPAP Machine. That made me sleep until 8:10 this morning.
Kathy has been waking shortly after I get up lately which is surprising. She was surprised when I told her about the Rain earlier. We discussed what we needed to do today before heading to our Computers. I also called Pharma Choice to verify our Thirty Day Supply of Medications was ready for pick up.
Planes parked at the Airport.
Checking The Weather Network the Radar showed plenty of Storm Cells heading our way with a break during the afternoon.
For lunch we had Macaroni with Cheese then added Cookies, an Orange and Yogurt Cup for dessert. It was only 12:30 when we were on our way out the door. It’s been some time since we’ve used the Truck so this would give it a good run.
Our destination was our drug store in Amherstburg. Even though the weather looked threatening we were enjoying being out of the Apartment. We took Walker Road all the way to Pike Road then headed across to Pharma Care. They are now open so I went inside while Kathy waited in the Truck. They had Distancing Lines marked on the floor as well as a Hand Sanitizing Station to use. Everything was already bagged and waiting. I was out in Two Minutes.
We stopped at the local Dollarama because Kathy wanted a larger Flower Pot for her Kayla Lillies. There was no line outside so we took our time checking to see if there was anything different at this location. We did find a few more food stocks to bring home to try.
Looking across the road towards Walmart there must have been Fifty or more people waiting to get inside because the line extended nearly to the road.
We drove over to our son Kevin’s house so I could check if there was a problem with our Garden Shed since it is located in the lower corner of the yard. Everything looked good and dry so we left without knocking at the door because we hadn’t called ahead to visit. He might not have even known we were even there.
We took Highway 18 back to Windsor going through Two separate Construction Zones in the process. It felt good to be back in the Truck. It ran perfectly and even had the chance to run through a Regen Cycle. As we passed our local Zehr’s grocery store near home their line up was as bad as Walmart in Amherstburg so we just headed back to the Apartment.
We weren’t feeling very hungry so we had Grilled Ham and Cheese on a Bun along with an Orange and Chocolate Croissant for dessert.
Driving through McGregor.
Watching the 6 o’clock Local News the Meteorologist showed how the Storm Cells had changed direction and we could expect Rain for the entire day tomorrow. I changed my mind about going for groceries first thing in the morning because I would probably get very wet.
Our high today was much cooler.
When the News ended at 7:00 Kathy stayed home while I headed to the Zehr’s grocery store. There weren’t that many people shopping by then so I managed to get all the food items on my Grocery List but couldn’t find Dish Soap. Our Bank Account was much lighter when I headed back to the Apartment.
Yesterday's Grilled Salmon Patty with Salad.
Kathy and I had everything put away by 9:30. One of the Comments on yesterday’s Blog asked where we found the Salmon Patties we grilled. The answer is you make them. Clean the contents of a can of Salmon, add an Egg, Bread Crumbs, Finely Chopped Onions and Celery. Mix thoroughly, shape into Patties and grill in the Frying Pan. They are delicious.

Kathy was watching Forensic Files while I was gone so it took longer then expected to write this Blog. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

What’s a cow’s favourite day of the year?

Moo Year’s Day.


  1. I was going to ask the same thing about the patties. Wondered if you bought them. Sound easy and yummy, now I need to buy salmon! :) Thanx.

  2. Around here, there are no more lines. You can just walk in a store like normal. About half the people are wearing masks. All checkout stands now seem to have big pieces of plastic between you and the cashier. I'm looking forward to cooler weather too!

  3. Our stores are opening up, but some still have lots of lines.

  4. Looks like you got a lot done today.

  5. I figured you made your own patties..not happening here LOL. Unless Ken does it..Yes, every time I go grocery shopping the bank account is lighter..oh if only we didn't have to eat!

  6. We used to make our own patties just like that, even with canned tuna. Now I buy remade salmon patties at Costco made with wild salmon. Handy to have.
