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.

Hot Forecast, Doctor’s Offices Calling Us and The Virus Continues.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

Even after getting to bed early and sleeping like a couple of rocks last night we both slept past 8:30 this morning. After opening the Balcony Blinds all that was needed to know how warm it was outside was to hold our hands by the Glass Door. Even with the AC cooling the inside air you could still feel the heat coming through.
When our activity levels are low we try to have our meals reflect that. For breakfast we simply had a Muffin before heading to the Computers with our Coffees.

Around 11:00 we received a call from Kathy’s Nose Specialist Office. Last September he had diagnosed a problem Kathy was having and had scheduled her for surgery this August to correct it. With the Virus Shutdown everything was put on hold but Kathy is having a harder time to breathe through her nose. A few weeks ago I left a message at their Office asking they call back. They explained they have to work with the Hospital but will get back to us with a new appointment date when they get one.
Since Kathy pulled a fast one on me yesterday by not allowing me to help make lunch or supper I insisted that today she had to sit back. Of course even while I was getting things ready she kept looking in to see about helping. She didn’t like sitting back so now she knows how I felt. Lunch was Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwiches along with a dessert plate of Fruit, Pastry as well as a Pudding. We took our Cranberry Tea over to the Computers to finish drinking it.

We’d barely sat down when the phone rang again. This time it was for me setting up a follow up appointment to review the findings of my Endoscopy. Since I already know the findings I wasn’t too concerned. I realized that since the Virus Shutdown a lot of procedures and consultations had to be rescheduled it is simply the Specialist’s way of charging OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Plan) one more time for the next Five Years.
See the Feel Likes for the next week.
We continued working on the Computers knowing that sooner or later we will have to go out as it continues to be Hot. The forecast for the next week is not too inviting for Kathy but maybe she might sneak out during a cooler morning.
I again chose to cook supper wanting to use up an Acorn Squash we’ve had in the Fridge for a while. When I went to cut it in half trying Two of our sharpest Knives they barely marked the skin. It was extremely cold as well as other food in the Fridge so I just figured it was nearly frozen and left it to thaw. I cooked a couple of Angus Burgers and manage to serve them with our Very Berry Tea. Again Kathy was pacing the floor trying to help.
We watched the 6 o’clock Local News before I was finally able to cut through the Squash. Fifteen Minutes later we were able to enjoy it like a Snack. We worked together to clean up the Dishes.

With little else of interest on the only thing we watched was coverage on the resurgence of the Coronavirus in many of the US States. Even though it still seems to attack the Seniors and those with Poor Immune Systems it has claimed much younger victims with an Eleven Year Old in Florida being the youngest just today.

As many of us have stated before we would never have believed we would live through something like this and can only stay Safe and Pray they get a handle on this soon. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Words of Inspiration

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

  1. Grilled bacon and cheese sandwiches sound yummy! The humidity is unfortunate for Kathy, however a huge part of Ontario summers, isn't it?
    Stay as cool as possible and stay safe!

  2. I feel for Kathy. I've had trouble breathing through my nose ever since I got smashed in the head with a tetherball! LOL I hope she's able to get it fixed up soon.

  3. The 11 year old who died in Florida had been declared a "medical foster child" when he was this point he was getting dialysis 3 times a week for kidney failure..lots of underlying medical conditions..the news only tells you enough to scare you. Just info for you. Your summers are just way too hot and humid :)

  4. I hope that Kathy gets in sooner. that later. Most uncomfortable.

  5. We will be down in that heat next week visiting our son and his family. Not that it has been much cooler up here. I hope they are able to schedule Kathy soon so she can breath easier.
