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.

Triple Celebration.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After wearing ourselves out baking and decorating those cakes yesterday you’d have thought that we’d both sleep like rocks. Instead we both had a hard time falling to sleep and staying that way. So after sleeping on and off most of the night we slept until nearly 9:00 this morning. 

After breakfast we took our time reading at the computers until it was time for lunch. Another peanut butter sandwich was more than enough to eat. 
Greg busy grilling forty kabobs for everyone to eat.
Later after converting the backseat of the truck to carry the boxed cakes we had to wait to load them up due to a light rain shower that seemed to appear from nowhere. Shortly after 3:00 the truck was loaded and we were on our way to our daughter Karen’s house. 
Food Table.
When we arrived the first persons we saw were Ray and Rose our son-in-law Greg’s parents. They had just pulled into the driveway and were unloading their contribution to the Potluck dinner. Kathy and I carried the cake boxes and placed them on a card table out of sight and out of mind of everyone that would soon be arriving. 
Dessert Table.
Kathy and I visited inside with Ray and Rose who were very interested in our travels. As were their other sons Bob, Mark & Richard and as all their families arrived the house started to fill. Greg then busied himself on the barbecue grilling the kabobs that we’d picked up for them in Amherstburg the other night. By 6:00 everyone had enjoyed a tasty and enjoyable meal and were sitting back to visit and relax. Most of the gang had moved to the outdoor decks but we stayed inside due to Kathy’s allergies. There was always someone asking us about our travels. We were also waiting for Karen to help clear up the food table so that we could convert it to a dessert table. 
With family all around I surprise Ray with a belated 85th Birthday Cake.
Once most of the guest had looked over the table they all went back to visiting as prearranged outside because Ray was sitting on the deck. The slab cake that we’d made yesterday was for Ray but his birthday was back in March. On his big day everyone had called to congratulate him but there was no celebration. When everyone started singing Happy Birthday so did Ray because he thought that it was for one of the grandchildren’s birthday that he’d forgotten. When his name was mentioned and I stooped in front of him with the cake the look on his face was precious and then with a smile on his face he blew out the candles. How many times does someone celebrate their 85th Birthday. His was delayed but not forgotten. 

The German Chocolate cake was in celebration of our grandson Tyler’s coming graduation from grade eight. The carrot cake wished all the fathers present a Happy Father’s Day as well. With nearly thirty people in attendance by the time we left there was very little left of any of food, the cakes or the cupcake “Snowballs”. Everyone complimented us on the decoration of the cakes and their taste. 

Even with this party behind us there is very little free time ahead of us in the next couple of months. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
