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.

Great Visit And Hockey Report.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After all the excitement of watching our grandson Tyler playing hockey and visiting with family and friends Kathy and I didn’t want to take the chance of our minds racing all night so we had a cup of Sleepy Time Tea to help us relax before going to bed. When our heads hit the pillows last night the next thing we knew was the sun was shining into our bedroom just after 9:00 this morning. By the time we opened the curtains and sat down to have our breakfast the sun had disappeared behind a bank of clouds that it would only peak out from behind a few times through the remainder of the day.

Just before 11:00 my sister Anna arrived for a scheduled visit. It seems to be a habit that we visit with her in London during the summer months and then she meets up with us in Tecumseh around the Christmas holidays. Being that we aren’t going south this winter it was possible to get-together during the holidays rather than the harried commotion that normally preceded Christmas and our departure. We visited until nearly 1:00 when we were told by Anna that she was buying lunch. The place of choice turned out to be the Michigan Diner on Manning Road where we continued visiting while enjoying our meal. Since there was still much more to talk about we returned to our apartment where the talking never ceased. Unfortunately Anna had to say her goodbyes shortly after 3:30 but we’ll be seeing her again sooner in the new year.

Later Kathy was in the process of checking our accounts online when she found a problem. We then had to scramble to the Credit Union before they closed where we were told the transaction had not gone through and to just recheck it in the morning. Since it was nearly 5:00 we went to Walmart where we looked for a few supplies we decided would make things better for us when we start Fulltiming and additional groceries. In the process of getting groceries I ran into our daughter Karen’s friend Sandy who told me that Tyler’s team lost their game today but ended up taking second place in their division for the Hospice Tournament. 

By the time we cashed out it was past 6:00 and we were starting to get hungry but weren’t in the mood to cook. Another coupon to the rescue and we enjoyed a much lighter meal at A&W for our supper. We won’t be taking any chances sleeping tonight. We’ll be having another Sleepy Time Tea before going to bed. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other, "Does this taste funny to you?"


  1. A nice visit you had and it appears that you quite often are not in the mood to cook, good thing you have lotsa fast food places around.

  2. Watching the grandkids play is always great for us and even greater memories for them.

  3. With my insomnia maybe Sleeping Time would help. I know one of my daughters use it.
