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.

Putting A Smile On Her Face, Belated Lunch Out and Sleepless.

When we got up at 8:00 this morning we were delighted that the overnight Rain had finally stopped and even though the Sun was hiding behind the Clouds the ground was starting to dry up. Breakfast was a smaller sized bowl of Cereal since we’d finished the Muffins over a Three Day period. We still took the time to have our Coffee/Tea at the Computers while checking Messages and The Weather Network.

We had everything cleaned up shortly after I moved our Truck to the Overflow Parking area and had just sat down for a moment when our Good Friend Vera arrived for a scheduled visit. Most that have followed us for some time will remember that Vera had a fall in her apartment last summer that resulted in her breaking both her Right Wrist and Right Ankle. Kathy and I visited her many times while she recovered but were already south of the border by the time she was finally released. Those that followed our adventures back in the Summer of 2012 will also remember Vera and her husband Bill travelling out to Wyoming with us for Three Weeks. Unfortunately Bill her husband of 52 Years passed away on February 4 while we were away.
Vera laughing at the Card.
We had a wonderful visit and surprised her with a couple of small gifts since we were not here at Christmas last year. It put a smile on her face for at least a few minutes. Anyone that has ever lost a Loved One especially a Spouse smiling is not something you do often. It almost makes you feel guilty when you do something so natural because your partner is no longer there to share the moment with you.

Around 12:30 we headed off to the Michigan Dinner in Essex to have lunch. Of course the Rain started again. This was a belated Birthday Dinner for the both of us as well as a Thank You for all the meals we smuggled to her while she was recovering in the Windsor Rehabilitation Center.

The talking never stopped which was good for Vera. It sounded similar to a session in Bereavement Counselling that we had both gone through after loosing our former spouses. It helped Vera to vent her feelings of frustration and to learn that what she was going through is totally normal in the Grieving Process.

It was after 2:00 when we got back Home and Vera decided she needed to head for home as well. She is slowly going through the process of purging Bill’s Clothes and other Things in the apartment as she intends to move to a smaller place.
With the Rain increasing its intensity we got caught up on our reading at the Computers that we missed this morning. We kept at it until we decided to have a bowl of Vegetable Beef Soup for supper along with a Pineapple covered Cottage Cheese dish for a dessert around 6:30.

We then decided to watch the movie Sleepless” starring Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan. It was nearly Non-Stop Action from the beginning to the end. Lots of violence but it is another movie that gets Two Thumbs Up.

Even though it has been raining fairly steady all afternoon the Wind has only been gusting to 25 MPH. We are supposed to have better but cooler weather tomorrow so we are going to try to get things done around our Site. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. It's always nice to catch up with good friends after a long absence. Also nice to let them know you understand what they are feeling and going through.

  2. Seems we are still seeing crazy weather everywhere. It's nice you took the time to visit Vera. That means a lot to us single folk.

  3. It seem like sometimes our purpose in life is to help others and we gladly do it.
    Thank you Kathy and Rick for being a couple of those people.


  4. I'm glad it appears Vera is doing well considering it's been a short time. She has a beautiful smile! Soup looks like a warm wonderful dinner!

  5. Happy you were able to get together with your friend and bring a smile to her face. I am sure it meant a lot to her during this difficult episode in her life.
