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.

Doing Chores In High Humidex and Different Meals.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

With the Humidex still at 91 F (33 C) when we went to bed last night we just left the Air Conditioner on. We also took another step to be certain we would actually sleep instead of waking throughout the night. We both took a Tylenol to be certain there’d be no aches or pains to wake us. The end result was that we had to drag ourselves out of bed at 8:00 this morning and we both felt all groggy. 

Our breakfast was quite different this morning with our having Pecan Tarts before they spoiled. With the forecasted Humidex of 108 F (42 C) there were no plans for a bike ride. We had breakfast, Kathy put drops in my Eyes and we had a double cup at the Computers. Then it was time to get serious. 

With my second Cataract Surgery scheduled for Thursday we had chores that needed doing before then. I started by putting fresh sheets on the Bed then gathered the rest of the Laundry and Towels for sorting and treating. Kathy busied herself making Chicken with Herbed Rice for lunch and served the last of the Cantaloupe for our dessert. 
These Doves thought that we were having a picnic today.
When I arrived at the Park Laundry Room I was shocked to find all the Windows and Doors closed but a Fan was busy moving the Hot Air around inside. Within a minute I had the Door propped and the Windows were all open allowing the temperature to drop within minutes. It was easier just to stay there so the clothes could easily be transferred to the Dryers as soon as the Washers finished.

It was 3:30 when I got back Home with all the Laundry folded. It felt wonderful getting into the cooler air. Kathy had just finished Dusting and Vacuuming and was just sitting down herself. We took a short break before putting things away. 

Yesterday before leaving Kevin and Melissa’s they gave us some nice Beefsteak Tomatoes from their garden that was having a Bumper Crop. For supper we worked together to blanche, peel and chop up those Tomatoes so Kathy could make her Homemade Tomato and Cheddar Soup. Yesterday afternoon Kathy also helped Kylla make Cupcakes from scratch and there was a small amount of the Coffee Flavoured Cream Cheese Icing that came Home with us. While the Tomatoes rendered down we created a dessert by putting Chocolate Pudding in a dish, a spoon of the Coffee Cream Cheese on that, then topped it with a dollop of Cool Whip and Chocolate Chips. Everything turned out wonderful and there’s enough for another meal.

Since tomorrow will be a repeat of today, I’ll try to get my outdoor chores done early. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
