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.

Riding Around, Burning Documents and Visiting With Neighbours.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

With all the Fresh Air coming through the Open Windows last night and the little bit of Exercise we got yesterday, we both managed to sleep like a couple of Rocks. It was nearly 7:30 before I finally got out of Bed and started getting things ready for breakfast. With Kathy needing more sleep it was nearly 8:30 when she came downstairs. Even with the mild temperature, with no breeze whatsoever 59 F (15 C) actually felt warm.

After finishing our Coffee/Tea at the Computers we were out the door shortly after 10:00 to get more bike riding in. We are still getting a lot of smiles and waves from people as they suddenly realize that we are riding a Tandem Bicycle. We even stopped at Larry and Nicole’s New Trailer for a short visit.

We were back Home shortly after 11:00 because Kathy insisted she had things she needed to do. Most of them were little chores like sweeping the Patio while I pulled some newly exposed Weeds in our Flower Gardens. When it became time for lunch we had the Leftover Pizza that we grilled on the Weber on Friday. Warming it in the Microwave had it tasting like it was freshly made.

We finally started getting a slight breeze but since it was coming from the South it did little to make the 97 F (36 C) Humidex feel any cooler. I move our Firepit into the Driveway so that we wouldn’t cause any Heat Related Problems on our neighbour’s trailer due to our having a Campfire.

We kept busy doing little things until it was past 5:00. That was when Kathy started making a Garden Salad inside while I grilled a couple of nice Steaks for our supper. Since it was so comfortable outside we enjoyed our meal under our Gazebo. 

Once we’d cleaned up the dishes I went outside to start the Fire. We had invited the Neighbours over to enjoy it with us but we told them a little later. The reason was all those Information Sensitive Documents that Kathy takes out of our File Cabinet every year had to be destroyed. Back in the days we were in the House and finally the Apartment they would have been Shredded. Here at the Park we simply start a nice Log Fire then slowly start feeding the Documents in.

Before long all the Documents were ashes and it was time for our neighbours to join us. First Kevin and Lorrie arrived then minutes later Ray and Gazelle walked across the street. We had plenty to talk about, Kathy’s Eye Surgery, where everyone goes for the winter, what we did for our careers, making suggestions about Truck Repairs and even Local Farmer’s Markets. Before we knew it was past 10:00 and time to close up for the night.

We’ll see what we can get into tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Words of Inspiration

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
