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.

Sensitive Memories, Home Appointments and Visits.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

We both managed to sleep like a couple of rocks last night but when I kissed Kathy to wake her this morning she wanted More, more time to sleep that is. Being Retired means that we shouldn’t need to set the Alarm to wake us up before we want to. (I shut the Alarm off again this morning.) We are trying to wake earlier so that it won’t be such a shock when we have to use it on Thursday when I go for my first Cataract Surgery.

We had a lite breakfast of English Muffins with Rhubarb as a topping. We both grew up eating it when we were children and carried it into our adult life. We were fortunate to find it in the grocery stores this past spring as well as our son Kevin getting a large bunch from his garden.

We finished our Coffee/Tea at the Computers and started our inside chores by 9:00 because we had people coming this morning. Putting the Computer Stands off to the side really opened up the room. Once I’d packed away the trash I headed outside to move the Truck over to the Overflow Parking Area so our visitors could park right on our Site.

Once the Truck was parked I came back and noticed that a lot of Grass and Weeds were trying to grow in our driveway so I pulled out our Garden Sprayer and gave them a good dose of Vinegar being cautious not to get it on the lawn. Just as I was finishing Mary pulled up.

Mary from Healthy Heals was here to tend to Kathy’s feet. Due to Kathy having Diabetes and our Health Care Coverage this service is covered. Mary also taught me years ago, what to do so while we are away I can tend to Kathy’s feet. She also likes hearing about our travels and dreams of the day that she’ll be able to do things like that.

It was nearly noon when Mary left and as we were tidying up Three Minutes later my sister Anna arrived. We try to get-together at least once a year but with everything we’ve been doing and the fact that she lives in London which is Two Hours away it’s not always easy. With the outside Humidex already at the Century Mark we sat inside so that she could cool down which also gave us time to start catching up on what is happening in her life.

Around 12:30 we took the Escape and headed to the Michigan Diner in Essex for lunch. It’s been a while so we thought we would be different and all ordered Fish and Onion Rings on a Tuesday. That was the first time Anna ordered hers that way and really enjoyed it. Anna also notice a lot of other people around us ordering Fish and Chips rather then the Day’s Specials. It’s that Good.

We were back at the Park before 1:30 and gave Anna a quick little driving tour around so that she could better understand the layout that we often write about. Back Home at our Trailer Anna brought in her new Laptop Case and showed us what she has been up to. She has started making a Family Tree that is starting to look like a Forest. She looked up our Mother’s side of the family, then our Father’s side of the family and adding what information we could add. She also was looking up her Mother-in-law’s family as well as her Father-in-law’s side of the family. Each of those are being researched separately and they each contain a Hundred or more people. We also talked about our Parents and Late Spouses. All three of us, Anna, Kathy and myself have traveled that road and even though it happened a long time ago we still got choked up thinking about those final days. It was past 4:30 when we said our Good Byes with Hugs and Kisses.

It was past 6:30 when Kathy made us each a Chicken Salad Wrap. We ate more out of habit then hunger. We watched a Morgan Freeman Double Feature tonight. Both Movies were about a time that both Kathy and I remembered living through.

Tomorrow we’ve got things to get done before my Cataract Surgery and then Kathy is going to keep you informed about what we are doing until I can see the Computer again. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
Sorry, no Pictures today.

  1. Making a family tree is a lot of work but well worth it.

  2. Sounds like a nice visit with your sister. We all just need to slow down and visit our loved ones. Life is too short, isn't it?

  3. Family trees are fascinating. I haven't done much work in that area, but what I have is so interesting to read. Good luck with the surgery!

  4. Sounds like a lovely visit with your sister! I really don't know much about family trees, but it sure would be interesting! Take care you two!

  5. You are such a good husband, I know because I have one too. Love your blog hope to meet y'all someday, plan on being in Quartzsite AZ this winter too
