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.

Windy Snow Day

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Christmas is now only 3 days away and things are really starting to fly by. Even though I had an errand to run early this morning I slept very comfortably. I even set the alarm but was rested enough that I woke minutes ahead of it going off. The fact that the wind was starting to rattle the bedroom windows helped me wake up but when I opened the curtains I was in shock to see a dusting of snow on the ground.
Our daughter Karen’s job had her taking the train from Windsor to Toronto on University business. She left yesterday spent the night there and won’t be back in Windsor until after this blog is posted. She had asked that we make certain that Tyler and Kylla made it off to school on time this morning so that’s where I was by 7:45 today.
The kids had already had their breakfasts by the time I got there and were finishing getting ready. At 8:15 Tyler headed for the School Bus Stop and was on his way in less than ten minutes. Karen normally drives Kylla to school so that was my job today. Kathy was a little under the weather so she had stayed at the apartment. It's a good thing she had because the flurries and wind never stopped all day.
Back at the apartment Kathy and I had breakfast before heading out to Essex to pickup her laptop which is now working the way it’s supposed to. There was something about the Windows program that had not been doing its automatic updates the way it should and caused the program to start shutting down parts of the computer.
We stopped at the storage yard to put some things in the trailer that we had bought the other day and some were early Christmas presents that we gave to one another.  By putting it in the trailer where it is supposed to be gives us more room in the apartment for this weekend when we are having visitors.
For supper Kathy and I went out for a fish and chip dinner at the Legion. Not only do they have one of the best fish dinners in the area on Friday they also have spaghetti dinners on Wednesday and Sunday brunches. All these help support the Legion and maintaining the building and their prices are fairly reasonable.
On the way home we stopped to pick up a prescription that Kathy’s doctor called in for her today. Tomorrow more Christmas celebrations will be starting for us. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
