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.

It felt wonderful having the Balcony Door and Bedroom Window open most of the time yesterday but it didn’t last. Kathy had only gone to bed minutes before I looked at the Radar Screen showing a huge Storm Cell heading our way through the middle of the night. To play it safe the Balcony Doors were closed tight and the Bedroom Window left open less then an Inch to leave a slight breeze in.
Our morning view.
I was up shortly after 8:00 this morning and Kathy followed minutes later when she heard the Balcony Door being once again being opened. It looked like it would be a perfect day. We reviewed what needed to be done as we had our breakfast Muffins. The next step was to head to the Computers. There was plenty to get caught up on but I had to do an On-Line Questionnaire then the Q-Pass needed to be printed. As per usual I had to fight with my Computer to make it work because of Microsoft Updates that always cause us grief. After the morning chores I hadn’t finished reading all the Blogs on our Sidebar.
We both wanted soup but Kathy wanted to try something different so we tried a Buttered Chicken and Rice Soup along with the last Lemon Squares for dessertWe’ll be having the Squares again in the future.

We cleaned up the Dishes before Kathy returned to her Computer. It’s been a few days since I last exercised so I got right into it and even managed to do my entire routine before heading for the Shower.

Once I was all cleaned and dressed I noticed the sky had darkened so I checked The Weather Network and the Radar for our area. The forecast had changed since this morning and Windsor was about to get hit by a number of smaller cells crossing the border from Detroit. I also noted that Bayfield and Durham would be taking a much harder hit then we were. The reason those areas are important is because our friends Al and Kelly from the Bayfield Bunch along with Bill and Patsy from On Our Way and Chilin With Patsy live in those areas when they are here in Ontario.
When it starts to Rain it all looks the same..
The Rain was still coming down while I was in the Apartment so Kathy decided to stay home. By the time I got outside at 3:00 less then a dozen drops hit me. The parking lot was a bunch of miniature lakes.

My destination was the Canadian Blood Services building on Grand Marais. I barely parked the Car when the Rain started coming down like a power washer. It lasted less then Five Minutes. Entering the building everyone is required have an Appointment and to wear a Mask. Inside the lobby after disinfecting your hands you are asked a series of Coronavirus Questions and have your Temperature taken before you proceed to the Blood Screening stage. The place was full with all the Donation Chairs spaced well apart. After making my 124th Donation I took my Snack and Juice to enjoy in the Car. The entire process was less then Thirty Minutes.

Kathy thought I was pulling a prank on her when I called to say I was finished. I suggested picking supper up on the way home to which she agreed. I stopped at Arby’s where they had changed their special so we got Two Grilled Chicken Sandwiches for supper. We were eating in the Apartment by 4:30.

After supper I started getting caught up on the Blogs that had posted this morning until we checked out what was on Television. After watching lots of Hallmark Moves and Crime Shows we both wanted to see something different. We watched “Pitch Perfect” and “Pitch Perfect 2” which involves lots of singing with no music. It was a nice distraction to everything that’s on the tube these days.

With lots of Lightning during the movies so we had to close the Window and Door to only slight openings. With the heat expected to return by the weekend we’ll see what happens tomorrow. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
