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.

More Miserable Weather, Doing A Few Chores and A Birthday Celebration.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

We both slept like a couple of rocks last night. We changed the bed linens to the Winter Sheets yesterday and Kathy said this morning that she felt instantly warm and cozy. She also said that as soon as she was covered she turned over and the next thing she knew it was morning. Now that is a deep sleep.

When we opened the Window Shades this morning it basically looked the same as yesterday but without the Rain. There were puddles everywhere but the storm had moved through our area. The Cloud Cover and the Cool North Wind stuck around the entire day.

We spent part of the morning on the Computers but being cooped up inside without running any heat source we were chilled enough that a Bowl of Hot Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup for lunch was the only way to warm ourselves from the inside. 
Another dreary day. This is 5:00 in the afternoon.
When lunch was finished Kathy washed the Dishes enjoying every second her hands were in the warm water. I busied myself gathering the Trash and Recycle then walked it down to the Park Trash and Recycle Area. When I returned I flushed our Black Waste Tank and emptied our Grey Tanks. By the time I got back inside I needed another hot drink in order to warm up. With the Sun forecasted to make an appearance for the next couple of days I decided to work at my outdoor chores then.

We made Ham and Cheese Salad Wraps for supper. Since we weren’t that busy today we didn’t need to eat that much but there was another reason for not overeating. 
Blowing out the candles.
Shortly after 5:00 we drove to our daughter-in-law Jen’s home in Essex. Everyone else was delayed due to a traffic accident along the way. Jen’s parents Jack and Sue along with her sister Melissa with her family as well as her friend’s family were all in attendance. Today we were celebrating our grandson Connor’s 12th Birthday. 
A man sized piece of cake for a young man.
To change things around we first sang the Happy Birthday song and Connor blew out the candles. Jen then served the Cake and Ice Cream. Once everyone was fed Connor had fun opening his gifts. He had been asking his mom for a Watch lately and without knowing that it was one of the things Kathy and I gave him. He loved all his gifts and passed around a generous serving of Hugs to show his appreciation. 

While the kids played in the other room the adults had time to compare notes on a more mature level. As the evening passed it was time for the little ones to head home to their beds. The two sets of Grandparents stayed a little while longer before saying our goodbyes just before 9:00. We told Jen we’d be seeing her again soon.

By the time we got Home the Wind seemed to have stopped which made temperature rise to 57 F (14 C). That was warmer than it had been all day. We are hoping to get a lot more accomplished in the next couple of days. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

The World's Great Proverbs

Of two evils choose the less.


  1. If it was so cold in the rig, why didn't you turn some heat on?

  2. Another good looking grandson. Sounds like you are having some cool damp days. Definitely, soup days.

  3. Happy birthday Connor ... nice cake!!!!
