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.

Job Ads, Phone Calls and Delicious Meals.

 Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

Just when I started enjoying getting up at a decent time in the mornings now I’m starting to sleep in. There was little light shining along the Window Blind but I should have been on the move sooner. The parking lot below was a mixture of puddles and drying pavement but the Clouds were not very promising.

Our Afternoon Sky.

I was just in the process of getting breakfast ready when Kathy joined me. When I told her about me sleeping in she was even surprised.

Settling in at the Computers I had just finished applying for a Job when the phone rang. It was my sister Anna calling to wish me a “One Day Early” because she has an appointment tomorrow. We spent the next Forty Minutes getting caught up and talking Family Allergies. Her Family Doctor was a little concerned before scheduling Anna to get her Coronavirus Vaccine. Like we both said with all these Lock-Downs we sometimes feel scared to even call one another. We’ll be talking again soon.

Getting back to the Computer there were Two Jobs in my trade that I passed on because One was in Toronto, Ontario and the was in Kamloops, British Columbia. Definitely not worth our moving. There was another Job that was perfect for our grandson Matthew. He was just Laid-Off on Tuesday so I E-mailed the Ad to his mom. He’ll look into it.

I mentioned in yesterday’s Blog how our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa had gifted us Ready-Made Meals from one of the local Restaurants. Since Kathy and I celebrate our Birthdays the day between our big days today was the day. We had the Shepherds Pie with a piece of Baguette nicely Buttered for lunch topped off with a piece of German Chocolate Cake for dessert. It was all delicious and all we had to do was warm it in the oven. We even toasted one another with a glass of Carbonated Juice (Fake Wine).

That was a lot of Food so we definitely needed to digest lunch at the Computers.

Shortly after 2:00 our Dear Friend Vera that Kathy has been trying to reach called us. Being all alone during these Lock-Downs has really taken its toll on her. She was talking with Kathy when she had to go answer her door for a Prescription Delivery. When she called back she reported the person delivering the Medication was our friend Pauline. Small world. Since she is totally Vaccinated and we’ve had our first injections we’ll sneak over for a visit so Vera won’t feel so alone.

It was close to 4:00 when our friend Pauline called. It’s been nearly Six Months since we’ve talked or seen Pauline. We all laughed when she told us about seeing Vera.

Yesterday Kevin and Melissa gave us Two Meals so for supper we again warmed up the oven to make our meal. It was Italian Stuffed Peppers and the rest of the German Chocolate Cake for dessert.

On the 6 o’clock Local News we learned of groups trying to sue the Provincial Government for the Lock-Downs for which Citations were issued for breaking the Medical Emergency Rules. As for the Windsor/Essex Region we reported 49 New Coronavirus Cases bringing the Active Cases to 434.

Our high today was only 57 F (14 C) due to Northwesterly Wind Gusts but tomorrow should be near Summer like before cooling back down to Seasonal Weather.

We later watched “MacGyver”, “Magnum PI” and “Blue Bloods” to finish off our evening.
