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.

Chipping Away

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

The weather report for today was warmer with less winds to make it more comfortable to be outside. After lunch today we headed back over to our daughter's to work on the firepit patio again. Besides the weather having turned cool and blustery for this time of year there is also a lot of clay below the grass that I removed. Trying to lay a brick patio is something that takes time once you are set up there is no way of leveling them in a clay base. What must be done is level the clay as close as possible then add a stone base that can be leveled like a slab of cement. So this afternoon all I could do was use the pick axe and chip away at the clay.

We were about to leave and were invited to stay for supper again which we truly appreciated. Trying to type this post my hands and wrists are reminding me that I'm out of practice doing this type of work and that is why I give myself a day to recover between work days otherwise I wouldn't get too far. After a nice warm shower I'm sure there will be no trouble finding a comfortable position to sleep tonight.

Kathy and I would like to welcome new blog follower Jill from the blog Jillgoes. Jill is a grandmother with a very unusual hobby that she claims she was tricked into. She holds a 3rd Degree Brown Belt in Judo and Jujitsu. To hold that kind of ranking at any age is good but when you start later in life to attain it is truly an honour.

Jill has also left a question on her first comment about the beautiful Purple Pansies on the post last night. Yes they are purple pansies but since the nurseries are just starting to stock them I did what many boggers do and that is to use a photo in our files. Those pictures are representative of what we have been seeing already this year and once it warms up again should see again soon. Something else we hope to see in 57 days is Summer which means that Kathy and I will be starting our travels again this year in only 40 more Days. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.


Why did the horse cross the road?

Because the chicken needed a day off.


  1. Its warming up a bit at a time, but you had better take it easy too, like you advised me!

  2. Sure that everyone will be appreciating the efforts of your hard put work on the firepit this summer. Hope that a little warmer weather finds you soon.
