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.

Hard Day Getting Started

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

For the last week there always seemed to be something that would come up getting in the way of my exercising. So last night I moved things around in the office so that when I got up this morning I could simply start working out. That was the plan. When I got up just before 7:00 my head was so stuffed up that it felt the size of a bushel basket. So I sat for a few minutes but before I knew it Kathy was in the living room with me shortly after 7:30 thus giving me a lame excuse to wait until later. 

At this point the best thing I could do was make breakfast and while we ate we watched the Weather Channel before heading to the computers. My sinuses were slowly clearing so I went into the bedroom and stripped the bed so I could clean the linens while I’d do the laundry. By the time I finished sorting everything my head was beating like a drum from the congestion. 

Kathy needed to go to the Dollar Store so we headed to the Tecumseh Mall. Surprisingly the Dollar Store was packed with people thinking that they could get Black Friday Weekend specials. At a Store like that you get the best price every day. We had a number of things we needed to find and by the time we found them it was nearly lunch so while I went to put our purchases in the car Kathy slowly made her way through the mall towards the food court. Since this is the smallest of the malls in our district we were very surprised at the size of the crowds that filled the stores. 

We chose to share a twelve inch Meatball Submarine sandwich from Subway for our lunch. This gave us time to people watch as well as enjoying our lunch. Two fellow co-workers from the plant I retired from Ed and Andre stopped by to say hello as they had been visiting with a group of friends and were just leaving. Then longtime friend Glenn stopped by and talked for quite some time. 

Back at the apartment Kathy was able to do a chore she had planned but I just couldn’t seem to get started. Even though the laundry was waiting to be done I just wasn’t in the mood so I put fresh linens on the bed before going to read blogs until just before supper time when Kathy turned the television on to a Christmas Special. It seemed to help me get out of my funk and we even had supper of Hungarian Hulka with a Smokey Southwest Salad while we watched the show. 

The 6 o’clock News followed the show and after I saw the weather report for tomorrow I was finally in the mood to get the laundry done but with a twist. I brought my laptop downstairs with me and wrote half of tonight’s post during the wash cycle. Now that the blog is posted I’m going back to fold our dry clothes. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.        


Did you hear about the gambler who was chucked out of Gamblers Anonymous?

He tried to bet on how long it would take him to give it up.
