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.

Flexible Plans.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

When Kathy’s head hit the pillow last night that was the last thing she remembered until she woke just after 8:00 this morning. I didn’t quite sleep that solid only waking twice and the second time was just before 8:00 this morning when I got up. 

Our neighbor Kelly was knocking on our door by 8:30 this morning after being away for two weeks. Her parents had taken her to Calgary, Alberta for her sister’s wedding and a vacation. Kathy had been taking care of her kitty Mia for that time and was amazed how fast the time flew by. Kelly had taken care of our house plants while we were away last winter so it was only right to repay the favor. 

For breakfast we again had cereal but with Raspberries on them. While enjoying our coffees and the Weather Channel we learned that our area had dodged a proverbial bullet as we saw videos of storm damage that took place in our region last night. They also showed that we are now going to enjoy cooler temperatures that are more realistic for this time of year. I had planned on attending a meeting of Retirees at the Local this morning but with a change of plans I missed the meeting. Shortly after having our breakfast we brought the truck across town to the Dominion Body Shop so they’ll be able to get the back of the truck repaired from our mishap on the 19th of August. 

Once back at the apartment we were finally able to sit at the computers to get caught up on our daily reading before settling in to have lunch. Of course we didn’t want anything going to waste so we finished the last of the Penne Pasta Kathy had made the other day. Serving it in smaller portions helps to make it go further without making it stick to the waistline as much. We topped it off with yogurt and peaches for a dessert. 

Before 1:00 we arrived at our daughter Karen’s home. They were having a new washer and dryer delivered by The Brick this afternoon between 1:00 and 3:00 so we were there just to let them in since both Karen and Greg were at work and the kids were in school. Of course as soon as we arrived Sanford thought it was play time so grandpa had to go play catch with him in the back yard. No matter how hard I threw the ball he would run all out to retrieve it until he was too warm then he’d dive into the pool to cool down only to start the process over again. After the delivery was done and we’d toweled Sanford off we left as a forlorned puppy watched us leave.   

Kathy went back to researching places to travel to but later in the afternoon she announced that it wasn’t for this coming winter but next year. At this point in our lives we still have a lot of exploring to do. The plan is that we will travel to different areas of the country find a place to stay and see as much of the area as we can. So this winter we will be returning to Florida and spend more time in the southern part of the state. For 2014-2015 we will swing slightly west to the panhandle of Florida and then work our way into Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. Yes we have seen a lot of this beautiful country but there is so much more to see. 

After supper Kathy was starting to feel the need to stretch her legs so we headed over to Walmart to do some walking. With the cooler temperatures for our area for the weekend we might even get some outdoor walking in. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
