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.

Two Christmas Celebrations And A Birthday.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Even though we weren’t doing physically demanding chores yesterday we were still tired enough to have a solid night’s sleep. Maybe there is some truth to that entire hibernating thing at this time of year. We had to drag ourselves out of bed so we could sit down for breakfast and just on time too. We’d barely sat down when the phone rang. My aunt Anna who lives in London was calling to ask if we could pick them up at their daughter Jackie’s home before going to lunch today with the car rather than the truck. Two weeks ago she had a bad fall and got really banged up including breaking her hand making it impossible to drive her car.

After doing our morning reading it wasn’t long before Kathy and I were out the door driving to the west side of Windsor to my cousin’s home. Even though it was not forecasted the skies had opened up and the rain was pouring down. After picking up my Aunt Anna and Uncle Bob it was only a short drive over to the Swiss Chalet where we had a delicious meal and get more information about Anna’s fall and the extent of her injuries. No pictures were allowed because it looked like my Aunt had stepped in the ring for a boxing match.

When we finished our meals we drove back to Jackie’s home where we continued our visit. They had plenty of questions about our going Fulltime why, where and how. They also related some of their travels to the southern states before they could no longer make the trip. They gave us their blessings and wished us many years of safe travels.

It was past 4:00 when we got back to the apartment. We were still not too hungry so all we had for supper was the leftover Celery Root. It tastes just as good today as when it was cooked fresh yesterday. We had a chance to do some reading on the computers before once again loading up the car and heading out by 6:00.

This time we only drove to the near west end of Windsor to visit with our daughter Rose and her family. When we left the apartment the sky was clear but just after we got out of the car the rain started coming down in torrents. By the time we made it into their home we were both soaked through. After draping our dripping coats on chairs to dry we sat in hopes of ourselves drying before going back outside. D.J. was very excited at the Christmas gifts he received because we always seem to know what he wants. Munaf never expects anything from us but truly appreciates everything we give him. For our daughter Rose this was a double celebration as today was also her Birthday. When she was growing up we made certain to separate the celebrations but once she had a family of her own that became more difficult.

Now back at the apartment writing the blog the rain has stopped but the wind is rattling our windows making us appreciate being out of the weather. With only one more shopping day left before Christmas we are glad to not have to go anywhere near the stores for the next few days. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Q: Why do bagpipers walk as they play?

A: They're trying to get away from the noise.
