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.

Making Progress and Second Merry Thanksmas Celebration.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

After having gotten to bed shortly after midnight last night I was surprised to find myself looking at the clock at only 7:30 this morning. It only a few seconds for me to escape from the warm coziness of our bed because that is the time I want to get up every morning. lately I’ve been sleeping way past that which means I’m not able to fall asleep as early. The logic behind that is it will give me more Daylight Hours to work on our outside projects. 
The Sun finally arrived later this morning.
The first thing I did downstairs was to open all the Window Shades in an attempt to let the Sunshine light up the trailer and warm us up. (That was wishful thinking) The sky was totally covered with darker clouds then yesterday but there was a saving grace. There was a 0 MPH Wind from the North. That’s exactly the way it read on The Weather Network webpage for our area. Cracking a window open the air felt warmer outside than in. The temperature today was more seasonal then the near winter like temperatures of the past few days. 
Turkey and Salad Wrap.
With all the allergies in the air Kathy slept in this morning. She did feel well rested but was upset for waking after 9:00. After breakfast we still had a double cup of Coffee while sitting at the Computers and getting caught up on all our reading. 
The trees are really changing colours.
While I was busy upstairs making the bed, Kathy was busy making Turkey and Salad Wraps for our lunch. She’s starting to get the message about cutting back our food intake on our slower days. 
Jen and Haigan.
Since we are expecting company tomorrow I brought the Truck to the Overflow Parking Area. When I got back one look at our grass told me it needed to be cut again. This is the type of Lush Green Grass everyone would want for their houses but it grows like crazy. Every Four to Five days it has to be cut. Once the Grass was mowed and trimmed it was time to get washed up and relax for a few minutes. 
Emma and Connor.
After loading up the back seat of the Car we were on our way towards Essex by 4:30. Our destination was the Michigan Diner where we planned on enjoying our Second Merry Thanksmas Celebration with our daughter-in-law Jen and the grands. We were at their house for a Birthday Celebration last evening and we felt it important that Connor enjoy his Special Day to its fullest and not mix the celebrations. We were able to get one of the booths that can sit Eight Comfortably so we knew everyone would fit without being packed like sardines.

Everyone enjoyed what they wanted but we all laughed when the portions for the two youngest at the table were larger then what the portions of our Senior Meals. Kathy and I were the only ones without a Take Home Box. 
Haigan and Connor opening their Gifts.
We followed Jen back to her place because she now knows all the short cuts. With our hands filled with Giftbags it didn’t take long before we started handing them out. Due to limited couch space we started with the boys. Both Connor and Haigan have similar tastes so that made it easier when we were shopping. They both enjoy colouring, doing puzzles and building things so all their gifts were the same but different so there was no mistaking who it belonged to. Once their gifts were open they started working on building their LEGO Planes. 
Emma liking her Lotions.
Emma is just getting into Make-Up and Perfumes so she loved everything she got. Jen enjoyed her gifts and made certain that we didn’t go away empty handed by giving us a priceless saying that will find its way onto our wall. 
Kathy with our new Sign.
We spent more time talking while enjoying Tea and a lite snack at the Kitchen Table as the boys worked on their planes. We learned a lot of different things tonight as well as sharing some past experiences of our own. Before we knew it was time to say Good Bye but hopefully we’ll get a chance to visit again before we leave. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
