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.

We Slept, Another Disappointment and Appointments for Next Year.

 Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

We both managed to sleep a little better last night but like I wrote yesterday it will take a few days before Kathy totally recovers.

Knowing that it was supposed to be warmer today we were a little disappointed when we looked outside to see the sky again filled with Clouds. At least it wasn’t wet outside.

Checking my E-Mail I was surprised to see another request to contact Stuart the person I spoke to yesterday. He figured that it was the Indeed site that had sent it to me.

By the time I checked The Weather Network to see we were going to have a wonderful day I had already gotten more E-Mails. The first one I looked at told me I had not been chosen for the Job that Stuart had interviewed me for. Bummer.

Lunch was Italian Wedding Soup. Dessert was
Orange Slices, Maple Cookies and a Pudding Cup.

Because we are again in a Lock-Down Kathy’s Cardiologist called for her scheduled appointment. She’s been doing good except for the inactivity by this Winter Lock-Downs but he thought it would be wise for her to suddenly have a bunch of tests. She’s even booked into next year.

There were Three other Jobs that caught my eye but I thought about reworking my Entire Resume. Someone once told me you could create just about any document needed by making it on a Spread Sheet so that’s what I did. The problem was I needed to make the Column Sizes different for each category so I copied them all then pasted them on a Word Document. It took over an Hour to create a Document that the application upload totally refused to except because it was a combined document. Two Hours later I had again totally redesigned my Resume. I may have told a fib as well by saying I had over Thirty Years experience instead of the Forty-Five Plus Years that I actually have.

I had submitted all Three Job Applications just on time for Kathy to serve supper. I had been so wrapped into what I was doing I never read the Local News or any Blogs today. I’ll have to buckle down to catch up tomorrow.

The 6 o’clock Local News was again talking about how the different levels of Government are trying to keep us safe from the Coronavirus. Looking at the numbers differently they suddenly believe that the Windsor/Essex Region is one of the provincial hot spots so they’ll try to speed up the Vaccinations in our area. Locally we saw 126 New Cases over a Three Day Period. There were 44 Cases on Sunday 41 on Monday and 41 today of which 24 were of the Variant Strains bringing the Active Cases to 433 in the area.

Even though we didn’t set any records today we were well above the average when we reached 77 F (25 C).

In response to the question in Jan’s Comment lots of people walk to the grocery, drug and variety stores. When they leave the store they carry their purchases all the way back to the apartment buildings with the store’s Shopping Carts. Not only are the stealing those Shopping Carts but when they leave them in the Halls inside the buildings they could create a Fire Hazard. Our building now only has Two left by the rear door.

We watched an episode of “Criminal Minds” this evening.

Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment unless it personally attacks someone for their comment or is Spam.

Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

On stag night, you take a real deer.


  1. Its my understanding a resume only needs show the previous 5 years or previous 3 positions. There are a ton of resume examples online that you could just google but short and sweet is the way these days with a warm fuzzy letter attached which I never did understand - they don't care who we are, just what we can do but perhaps it makes seekers feel better.

  2. As a tip to your resume, let your experience, skills and enthusiasm shine through. A cover letter needs to respond to the job advertised. If the people that took the shopping carts to push home were to take them back when going out shopping, there would be no problem, but I guess this would be wishful thinking.

  3. I can now understand why your area is on lockdown hopefully with the vaccines on the way it will bring the cases down.

    You had some nice warm temperatures.
