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.

Since we had quite a bit of Rain last night it put us both to sleep early. Then I was awake shortly after 5:00 so I took a few minutes to just lay in bed before starting my morning. Even then I was able to take my time having breakfast before heading out the door early. Since Kathy had packed up the Garbage I drove over to the Park Trash and Recycle Area. Once everything was in the appropriate containers it was time to head out the Gate at my normal time.

Being the first to arrive at Work every morning is getting to be old news but I would rather be early then late. Some of the parts that I had been waiting for since the beginning of the week had mysteriously shown up on my Workbench during the night while others it was like pulling teeth to get before the end of the shift. Even as the end of the day was approaching the Owner was still making changes.

With the outside Humidex sitting at 104 F (40 C) and with the area I work in near the Laser Cutters being about Thirty Degrees warmer I was fighting a losing battle to stay Hydrated. Some of my coworkers seeing that I was struggling to do the mountain of things for the Project being more in their field would walk away with the pieces and return them minutes later ready for me to install. The end of the shift was a Half Hour gone before I closed up for the night with the Second Aluminium Project completed and ready for delivery.

The sky was completely full of Clouds by the time I left the parking lot and it was getting darker the closer I got to Home. When I passed through the Gate at the Park Lightning was starting to fill the sky. Kathy was outside watching the storm having just gotten Home herself after a day of running errands.

We were no sooner inside the Trailer when the Rain started and the Wind was blowing well above the Fifty MPH. We scrambled to shut all the Vents and Windows. Leaves were being torn from the Trees and our Patio Furniture was being blown over. The storm also knocked out the Power in the Park which meant we had no Internet.

Even though I needed a shower the driving Rain lulled the both of us into having a Snap. It may have only been Ten Minutes but we both felt refreshed. It was nearly 6:00 before I started my shower and nearly 6:30 by the time I was done shaving. With last night’s Rain and what we had this afternoon there was Three and a Quarter Inches of Rain in the Gauge. No need to water the grass.
Nice presentation.
We were both hungry but too tired to cook so we drove up to the 19 TH Hole Restaurant to have supper. When we walked in they were just getting their Power back on. We both had been Dehydrated through the afternoon so we both ended up downing Two Large Fountain Drinks with our Perch Dinners. It wasn’t until after we got Home that we started to feel like our old selves again. 
Our Sunset.

Words of Inspiration

One must be poor to know the luxury of giving!

  1. It's weird to me that the owners keep changing the design of whatever you are working on. Seems to me that would continue to cost them more.
    Stay dry!!!

  2. Wow that's a lot of rain! Dinner looks yummy too! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Nice to get the second project completed. Wishing you a relaxing weekend.

  4. We are having half your weather. Plus 100 degrees but no rain. I really wish you would send some south. Pond is getting low again.

  5. Glad your co-workers saw fit to give you a hand...good for them!

    Wish we could get a little rain here we really need it.
