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.

Appointments Nearly Finished and Lots Of Safe Travel Wishes.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Last night was our coldest night so far this season. It was one of those nights that you wouldn’t stick any part of your body outside of the Warm Winter Bedding. Well maybe for only a few seconds and that was because someone else was gathering the Bedding to snuggle with. It was a slow process but the Blankets were replaced to cover everyone in the bed.

By spending that awake time during the night our bodies demanded we sleep a bit later but that was short-lived when the Phone began ringing at 8:20 this morning. It was the Doctor’s Office telling me my 3:30 appointment had just been changed to 1:00 because the Doctor’s Surgical Schedule had been changed.

We needed to get started anyways because Kathy had an In-Home Appointment this morning with Mary from Healthy Heals at 11:00. Looking outside the Sun was shining brightly in a cloudless sky. Lowering our sights a bit we could see our neighbour Terry was outside scraping Frost off his windshield as he was getting ready to head for Texas for the winter. After having breakfast we had our Coffees at the Computers. The first thing I looked at was The Weather Network showing the temperature had risen above the Freezing Mark but it still felt cooler. 
Felt like 30 F at 9 A.M., Fall has arrived.
As soon as the Coffees were done the room was rearranged to make it more spacious for Mary’s arrival. We were discussing how tight it was going to be to get to my New Appointment after Mary would leave. Somebody must have been listening because the phone suddenly rang. It was Mary saying she was ahead of schedule and would it be okay to come early. (Is the Pope Catholic?)

Kathy’s feet felt wonderful after Mary finished working on them and after wishing us a Safe Trip she was gone before noon. That just gave me enough time to move the Truck back to our site before we left for Windsor.

We were starting to feel hungry but we didn’t have time to stop anywhere to eat. Instead we went through the Drive-Thru at Wendy’s and just ordered a couple of Chicken Wraps off their Value Menu. That was a delay of less then Five Minutes before we were back on the road. With all the Traffic Signal Lights we easily had our lunch finished before arriving at the Shoppers Drug Mart at Tecumseh Road. Kathy went inside to look for a Hairbrush while I went next door for my appointment.

Even though the office was closed until 1:00 for lunch as soon as the Receptionist got back at 12:50 I was immediately brought in first. Even the Doctor was early and after a brief examination I was soon on my way with the wish to Enjoy Your Trip.

Since Kathy didn’t have any luck with the Hairbrush our next stop was Guardian Storage where we simply picked up our Mail.

Continuing up the road we stopped a Green Shield where Kathy handed in her Claim Form for Mary’s visit from this morning. 

We drove from there up the Expressway to Leisure Trailers in Lakeshore to pick up a few bottles of Blue Streak. This product helps keep our toilet clean and helps break up our waste. We also stopped to talk to Stephanie and Thanked her for pushing Jayco to fix our Trailer

Heading back towards Windsor we stopped at Canadian Tire and Walmart looking for a replacement Two-Tier Turntable to hold our Spice Containers. Neither of them had anything close to that so after picking some Note Pads up at Dollarama we went looking at Home Depot. They didn’t even have any but what they did have was parts. They had Ball-Bearing Swivels, Doweling and Edging. Combing that with the wood that I have, we’ll end up with a Lazy Susan that will never break. 

It was nearly 4:00 when we drove to our daughter Karen’s house in Tecumseh. We had been invited to join them for supper and a chance to visit before we leave next week. When we arrived only Sanford and Tyler were home. Tyler had just gotten home from school and was having a nap so Sanford tried to entertain us the best he could. After Greg, Karen and Kylla got home from work they decided we’d go out for supper. 

We ended up at the Michigan Dinner on Manning Road where Kathy and I ordered off the Senior Menus while everyone else used the regular menu. They insisted this was our going away meal. Thanks for the great meal folks, we do appreciate it. We headed back to their house where our visit continued with Hot Tea to warm us up. Before we left we were once again wished Safe Travels and they’ll be looking forward to seeing us in the spring.

At Home the Wind was lite and the sky clear with plenty of Stars filling the sky. Our high for today was 54 F (12 C) and we are already at 36 F (2 C) for the night. Tomorrow is looking like the perfect day to scratch things off our To-Do List in an effort of getting things ready for our southwest departure next week. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
