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.

It felt good to sleep in until 8:00 this morning and to feel well rested to top it off. I didn’t even have things ready for breakfast when Kathy started heading downstairs. Instead of having Coffee we chose to have a Hot Apple Cider drink in its place. 
This Morning's Clouds.
After getting lots of reading completed on the Computer I completed my inside chores before heading outside by 10:00. There was some fine-tuning to do on the first set of gates before starting the second. As anyone who has ever custom built anything knows when parts are not factory made to just put in place, each one has to be hand fitted. The Humidex was already at 97 F (36 C) by 11:30 and I was out of water. Before starting to weld the Latch on the second set of gates I thought of getting another drink.

Kathy was nearly ready to call me in for lunch. She had been busy creating some Chicken Salad Wraps that would help us get through until supper. She planned to do some cleaning after I went outside again.

Back outside there were dark looking Clouds filling the Sky and the Wind was really picking up but I was still going to try to tack these parts in place. Just as I lowered my Shield it felt like someone had hit me with a Water Balloon but I knew better. I just grabbed as many tools as possible and moved them under the Gazebo. With everything safe in Two Loads I just made it inside the Trailer when the heavy Rain started. 
Clouds after the Rain.
It was on and off for the next Three Hours so when it finally looked like it had stop raining I put everything away for the day. Checking the forecast showed the temperature was down to 82 F (28 C) by 4:00 and our Rain Gauge showed we’d had a Quarter Inch of Rain. 

Since this was Friday Kathy had me grilling a nice piece of Pacific Salmon while she was cooking some Peas and Homemade Home-Fries for our sides.

After cleaning the Dishes together, we sat down to watch the movie “American Sniper”. It showed how Chris Kyle felt it was his duty to protect his brothers in arms and how Four tours of Duty took its toll on his Family and his Mental Well-Being. We both gave it Two Thumbs Up.

Tomorrow will be a different kind of busy day. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Words of Inspiration

The sooner you treat your son as a man,

the sooner he will be one.

John Dryden, English Poet


  1. It's funny how it can be so hot and sunny one minutes, then be pouring down rain the next. I'm experiencing the same weather. RUN when it starts or you'll be soaked in minutes.

  2. We could use some of that ran. The boys that are fighting that large wildland fire would like to see it. But doesn't look like there going to be getting any time soon instead warmer weather close to hundreds and low humidity. Stay cool injoy that fish got four the other day. Smoked three and a half barbeque the other half boy it was good.
