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.

Leftovers, New Way Of Shopping and “Life As We Know It”

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

The problem with not having anything pressing planned for the day is you look at the Clock at 6:00 then you roll over to look at it again after 8:30. That was not what I planned. There’s that word that never seems to happen. By the time I had the Balcony Door open Kathy had already joined me. It was nearly 9:00 before we finished breakfast and brought our Coffee/Tea to the Computers.
The weather was perfect with a clear blue sky, a slight breeze and moderate temperatures. Even after getting caught up on our On-Line reading and our morning chores we added taking stock of what we would need when we would go for groceries later today.
While taking stock in the Fridge it also gave us ideas of what we would have for lunch, Leftovers. Even though most are quite tasty the Containers they are stored in take up a lot of space so lunch was Leftovers. We had the Leftover Lou’s Kitchen Pulled Pork on a bun for lunch along with the Leftover Grapes and Leftover Bing Cherries along with a Yogurt Cup for dessert.
Clouds start setting in.
Even though it really wasn’t that much we needed to let lunch settle before making it out the door around 1:00. Our first stop was Guardian Storage to collect our Mail. Since we weren’t expecting anything special we’ve only been collecting it once a week.
From there we headed over to the Bulk Barn. We have read of other locations being open in the Province but because of the Reflective Film they use on their Windows to keep the heat of the Sun out it looked like they were closed. When we walked through the door we were asked to disinfect our hands then to put on Plastic Gloves. We were then assigned a store Employee that would scoop and bag everything we wanted. Even though everyone was wearing Masks and Gloves we had to step back to Social Distance while the Employee got what we wanted. They also carried our purchases to the till before we were allowed to handle them. I’ve mentioned how we save money by shopping here compared to the regular grocery stores. We found out this location has been open throughout this shutdown.
When we left that store we walked to the Zehr’s grocery store to pick up the Produce, Pastries and Frozen Foods we needed to restock. When we walked out I had to put the Frozen Foods into our Insulated Shopping Bags because it was just too hot out for the groceries even though we were running the AC in the Car.

Back at the Apartment it took over a Half Hour to get everything put away. With a few more things on our List we’ll get them tomorrow.
Pizza and Carbonated Juice (Fake Wine).
For supper we had a Store Bought Medium Thin Crust Pizza that we just bought this afternoon.
Our high for today felt like 95 F (35 C).
On the 6 o’clock Local News the Federal and Provincial Governments are both considering allowing non-essential businesses in the area to reopen. Since the Coronavirus in the area is strictly among the Migrant Farm Workers and they are all under Quarantine other’s may be allowed to return to work. We’ll know more on Monday.

This evening we watched the comedy “Life As We Know It” staring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. Definitely an eye-opener to those thinking of having a family.

Tomorrow we plan on getting an early start before the temperatures get too high. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Hmmmm what about all the people than handled those products from creation to packaging to the store shelves? If they are doing all the handling, why do YOU need gloves??
