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.

Making It Work.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Last night both Kathy and I slept like we were supposed to and woke around 8:00 this morning feeling very refreshed. Even as we enjoyed our breakfast we could see others outside through our balcony doors having to scrape the heavy frost that was coating their car windows in the parking lot. Watching the Weather Channel showed that not only was last night meant to be a snuggle alert but most every night in the coming week will be the same. 

After finishing our blog reading this morning Kathy was in a cooking mood and started making a wonderful chili in the kitchen. I’ve been a bad boy this week and missed my exercise on a number of days but I always had the excuse that something else needed to be done first thus affecting my own well-being. I took my time and feel fantastic after getting a great workout in today. The chili we had for lunch was good but if we wait until tomorrow when all the flavors meld together it’s really going to taste great. 

We attempted to accomplish a few last minute arrangements this afternoon but after listening to what a service technician recommended we both think we ended up with a bigger headache in the end. In order to relax after that Kathy went back to the kitchen and made some homemade chocolate chip cookies. 

Once we had both tested a couple of those cookies (for quality control purposes only) we gathered our shopping lists and headed for the Zehr’s grocery store. Kathy actually had two lists. One list was for the things we really needed right away and the other was for things to get that we need if they were on sale. Much to her surprise there were only a few things that she didn’t get from both those lists. 

When we got back to the apartment there weren’t any shopping carts to be found in the building to haul our groceries upstairs with. This meant drastic measures had to be taken. After I parked the truck Kathy helped me to carry the first load of bags up the stairs to our apartment. I insisted she work to start putting those articles away while I hauled up the rest. By the time that was done we ended up watching the 6 o’clock News while we ate our supper. 

Kathy and I have always appreciated this time of year and since there is only 40 more days before Christmas we sat and watched a new Christmas Special that was on television this evening. Time really flies this time of year. 

Tomorrow we hope to accomplish more than we did today. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

Take Your Potluck Dregs, Please I love potlucks as much as the next guy, and for the most part the food is good, except for you people who bring pasta salads. There's like five of them every potluck! How much pasta do you people eat? After every potluck the fridge is packed with everyone's leftovers, and they stay there for weeks. Take your stuff home, especially that hummus, it stinks.

The Office Refrigerator,

  1. Bummer on the lack of carts to haul up your stuff.... my grandma lived in an apartment building that folks would hog the carts and never return them to the lobby. She bought a collapsible cart on 2 wheels to haul her things up herself and never let it out of her sight....
