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.

Doing Chores, Birthday Celebration and Grocery Shopping.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

It was 41 F (5 C) in our area when I first looked at The Weather Network this morning and Lakeshore was even colder. We know that it is officially Fall but it seems we have been experiencing a bouncing ball affect with our temperatures this entire year. Days of above normal temperatures to below seasonal temperatures and then back to the other again and again.

While reading the World News about all these Nations that are trying to show they are special by testing their Nuclear Warheads are more than responsible for changes to our Climate. In the last month alone there have been more Earthquakes around the Globe then in recent years. If these Tests continue we won’t have to worry about a Nuclear War because the earth itself will wipe out all forms of life as we know it. 
Kathy had Perogies and a Yogurt for lunch.
We kept ourselves busy most of the day. We also managed to finish all the Leftovers in the Fridge for lunch. 
I had two Perogies, the Herbed Noodles and Sauteed Vegetables
along with a Yogurt for lunch.
Shortly after 5:00 we took the Truck to give it a run. We headed to Windsor to run a few errands with the first being to Guardian Storage to collect our Mail. When I went to restart the Truck, it took a couple of tries before it would turn over. We don’t need problems like that happening on the road so I’ll be calling Jim at Windsor Gas and Diesel in the morning so he can check it out. 
Tyler checking his new watch.
Our next stop was to the nearby Dollarama where we needed to pick up an extra gift bag. It was after 6:00 so we walked across the parking lot to Harvey’s to have supper. It’s been a while since we’ve been there and were surprised how they had expanded their menu probably to compete with all the other Fast-Food Chains. What we truly enjoy about Harvey’s is all their Meat is cooked on a grill and you get to choose what fixings you put on it. We even splurged and shared an order of Deep-Fried Pickles. Definitely something we’ll order again. 
Tyler after reading his sister's card. Kathy rereading.
Our next stop was at our daughter Karen’s house in Tecumseh to help celebrate our grandson Tyler’s 16th Birthday. Since they were running way behind and we needed groceries we said we’d be back after they had eaten their supper. 
Checking out what his Mom and Dad gave him.
We went to the nearby Zehrs grocery store and not only got what groceries we’ll need for the next week but also some things that we just cannot buy in the U.S. The only alternative is to stock up before we leave Ontario. Not to worry to our U.S. friends there are some things that we can’t buy here in Canada that Kathy keeps putting on our shopping lists. Surprisingly the final costs of everything was not that high because lots of those items were On Sale. 
Tyler cutting his Peanut Butter/Chocolate Cake.
Back at Karen’s by 8:00 Tyler enjoyed all his gifts. We also enjoyed helping him to eat his Cake with Ice Cream. With everything cleaned up his sister Kylla and her boyfriend Cody took Tyler out to see a movie at the nearby Cinema-Plex. Even though it is a school night his part-time job at McDonalds keeps him up later on many nights. We sat and talked for quite a while with Karen and Greg. It’s a good thing our groceries were packed in Thinsulated Shopping Bags because we didn’t leave for Home until nearly 10:00.

When we finally arrived Home, and got everything unloaded and put away it was past 10:30 before we finished. We’ve got phone calls and chores that are going to be keeping us busy tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

You Might Be a Redneck If

You own more cars than socks.


  1. I'm interested to hear about your truck. Maybe we have the same problem!!

  2. Some of those diesel's get a little hard to start when the temperatures begin to get cooler.
