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.

Even though I was still feeling tired while laying in bed, I finally just got up to start my day before 7:30 this morning. After having Two Late Nights I figured that it would be nice to just sleep in but it didn’t happen. Kathy did manage to sleep a little later but that was due to a change in her medication. When she got up just after 8:30 she said it felt like she was in a Fog and probably could have slept longer.

We had Cereal for breakfast and drank our Coffees at the Computers but we were watching the Clock. Once our inside chores were finished we were out the door and heading to Windsor by 10:20. 
Our Citronelle Plant is blooming.
Our destination was Fantastic Sam’s for an overdue Haircut. Because Jenna was away on one of her One Week Vacations last week and we don’t trust anyone else to cut our hair we waited an extra week for her return. When we arrived, the place was packed with other customers that had also waited for her to return. With her expertise she was going from one person to another using the extra chairs in the shop. She was only Five Minutes Late with our appointment but had us all cleaned up and out the door before lunch.

Kathy was starting to feel Light-Headed so we went to Wendy’s for our Value Menu lunch. Where else can you get Two Chicken Wraps, Two Chocolate Frosties and Two Senior’s Soft Drinks for $7.19. Not only did it taste great but wasn’t Over-Filling. 
We need Rain. There are a handful of these cracks in our lawn.
We had gotten groceries on Monday evening but didn’t get everything on our Shopping List that was back at Home. After lunch we went to the Zehrs Supper Store it took nearly an Hour but when we left we had only One Thing on our list yet to get. 

We were back Home by 2:00. One of the things we had picked up at the store was Bacon because Kathy said she only had a few pieces left in the Freezer. After putting the Grill Mat on our Weber Q, I proceeded to grill all Three Pounds of Bacon. Once it had cooled down inside the Trailer and Kathy had wiped away most of the grease she packaged them into Reusable Rubber-Maid Food Containers before putting them into the Freezer. Now if she needs Bacon for a Sandwich, in a Salad or on Perogies she simply microwaves what she needs in a matter of Seconds while the rest stays frozen until she needs it. 

For supper we had Leftovers, leftover Chicken Wings and leftover Celery-Root. We didn’t even warm it up because it tasted just as good cold.

We were again out the door before 5:30 in order to drive to Pharma Choice drugstore in Amherstburg. We had to pick up our Prescription Medications that I had called in on Monday. With a new assistant that we had never seen before it was a bit trying. I kept telling her where to look for Kathy’s Meds and she kept looking on a shelf on the other side of the room.

Our next stop was for our weekly visit with our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa. With the 97 F (36 C) Humidex we found them inside enjoying the Air Conditioning. We all had plenty to talk about. Things we’ve been doing, things we want to do, things from our past and others that we are not sure of. Melissa is learning a new job at work which may be easier in one sense but harder in another. As usual we had an enjoyable visit that was filled with laughter.

We left shortly after 8:00 to go over to Walmart where we were able to get the last thing on our Shopping List.

As we were driving across Pike Road we were suddenly hit with about Fifty heavy Raindrops in our windshield and then it stopped. As I sit here writing the Blog the Rain comes and goes every now and again. Perfect Timing! Have I told you how the sound of Rain on our Roof makes us sleep? Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. I was just checking some of your older posts when I noticed you had just published your blog. As I write this the rain is really coming down here, also.

    Sounds like you are having an enjoyable summer. How nice to get to spend a day with your granddaughter.
