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.

Waking With A Start, Air Strike and Government Decision.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

It once again felt wonderful being able to go to bed with the Bedroom Window open last night allowing all that fresh air in. Unlike Sunday night there were no noisy revelers leaving parties or birds wanting the Sun to rise earlier then the earth’s rotation would allow so we were able to have a restful night’s sleep. We were sleeping so soundly that it took the sounds of Jackhammers next door at 8:00 to wake us up with a start.
The picture doesn't capture the noise outside.
As we had our breakfast Muffin the noise continued but we were enjoying the slight breeze that was coming through the Balcony Door. By the short time it took for us to bring our morning Coffee/Tea to the Computers the noise level more then tripled as a couple of Bobcats (Small Front-End Loaders) started dumping mounds of broken Concrete into waiting Roll-Off Bins. Each time their buckets were emptied it sounded like an explosion resounding through the neighbourhood.

Since the forecast was for temperatures to feel like the Century Mark we succumbed to turning on our Air Conditioner and closing the Balcony Door and Bedroom Window much earlier then anticipated.

I forgot to mention yesterday that one of the things we were able to find while shopping in the produce section at Walmart was Rhubarb. We both grew up eating it and whenever we can find it in the stores we bring some home. While I was gone to the Blood Donor Clinic in the afternoon Kathy worked her magic and made it into a sauce.
For lunch today we had Toast that we spread generous helpings of Rhubarb Sauce on. We had a single Chocolate filled Croissant for dessert.

With our need to keep the noise and heat out we wanted to do something we haven’t done in a while so we watched the movie “Air Strike” starring Bruce Willis. It took place during WWII when the Japanese were attacking China from the air and what was done to stop them. We gave it an Eight out of Ten. This was one of the many movies that we purchased from the Sale Bins while travelling in our RV.
When it came time for supper Kathy grilled some Salmon Fillets and made the dessert plates while I made a Garden Salad then topped it off with Shredded Cheese. It was all satisfying and tasty.
The 6 o’clock Local News tried to explain why our Provincial Government is allowing the Chatham/Kent area to start opening for business while keeping the Windsor/Essex area closed. Hopefully that will change by next week. They also mentioned how much warmer tomorrow will be before the temperatures drop on Thursday.
Tomorrow will feel like 108 F (42 C).
Tomorrow and Thursday's Wind Gusts will be over 30 MPH.
Saturday will feel like 61 F (16 C).
We’ll see what we can do tomorrow. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

What do you call the soft tissue between a shark’s teeth?

The slow swimmer.


  1. What in the world are they doing with a jackhammer so close? I'm not sure what's worse ... jackhammer or a beer party next door! LOL

  2. ah....rhubarb. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!

  3. My poor sister lives on the top floor of a condo building in Peterborough. Last summer they replaced all of the heating and cooling systems for the building RIGHT ABOVE HER UNIT! She had just bought her new RV, but it was still sitting in the holding area of the park waiting to get moved on to her lot. THere had been a hold up while the old RV was moved, which held up the guys who were to do all the moving and hookups on the new unit.....and did I mention it was the week before July 1 and hotter than blazes?

  4. Haven't had rhubarb in many, many years Grandmother would cook it so that has to be many, many years.

    Your dinner last night looks like ours did. We also had salmon and a salad. But we also had a side of mashed cauliflower.

  5. Your salad looks good with dinner and so does your rhubarb sauce!
