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.

Good Problem, Why I Do It and What Do I Get.

 Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

Click on the pictures to enlarge.

Keeping the Bedcover on as we sleep has such advantages as keeping us comfortably warm but it can also cause a problem. We were both so comfortable that we slept far later then we wanted this morning.

Our morning.

I had barely stepped foot in the Kitchen when Kathy came out to join me. That means she only stayed in bed Seven Minutes longer than me. Looking out the Balcony Door was very discouraging because it was like looking at the same Clouds that we saw most of the day yesterday.

Once breakfast was over we headed over to the Computers. There were no Jobs that I had not applied for but there were plenty of Blogs and Comments to read.

Thanks to all who appreciate my on going mission for Blood Donations. Times have changed and things that used to restrict people from donating have been re-examined and many more people are now able to donate today. Having watched people receive that gift always encouraged me to do so but because I took multiple Antihistamines on a regular basis I couldn’t give. After having Surgery to correct that breathing problem my Late Wife battled Cancer and it was not until after her passing that I was able to start this journey.

The Canadian Blood Services recognizes us by sending a Certificate of Recognition our donations along with a small Pin that I proudly wear on my Hat. I’ll get my next pin at 150 Donations so I will post it in Three and a Half Years. When I see commercials with people saying their lives were saved by Blood Donors I just smile and feel proud. There is no longer an Age restriction. The only thing that could disqualify someone from giving is if you are on Blood Thinners or have had certain Health Conditions such as Cancer. If your Hemoglobin is too low simply taking Vitamin B-12 or Iron Supplements will help.

As stated before our Blood is regenerated. When I mentioned that I actually feel better after each donation my Family Doctor told me it also helps to keep my Cholesterol down as well.

Anyone that thinks they might consider donating feel free to contact your local Red Cross or Canadian Blood Services for more information. Remember “Blood is in you to Give” or “The Life you save may be your own”. Think about it.

For our late lunch I made a Vegie/Cheese Omelette while Kathy made a dessert plate with Mandarin Orange Slices, Yogurt Cups, a slice of the Fruit and Nut Bread from our daughter Karen along with a square of Dark Chocolate which is considered healthy compared to Milk Chocolate.

On the 6 o’clock Local News we learned of 28 New Coronavirus Cases in the Windsor/Essex Region bringing the Active Cases to 342 of which 190 were Variants of Concern with 2 more Coronavirus Deaths in the area.

Check out the Wind.

The high temperature here reached 54 F (12 C) but felt cooler because of the westerly Breeze and the Cloud Cover. We can expect Frost for the next couple of nights and there is a good chance of more Rain tomorrow with similar temperatures.

For supper we recreated last night’s Leftovers by chopping the remaining Chicken then adding it to the Spanish Rice. Kathy topped the Fruit and Nut Bread with Chocolate Sauce and Cool Whip for a change of taste.

Clouds clearing just before the Sun set.

We later watched “Criminal Mindsthis evening.

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

Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Time flies like an arrow.

Fruit flies like a banana.


  1. Your omelette looks so yummy! Nice your clouds cleared at the end of the day, hopefully today is beautiful!

  2. Clearly yesterday was an omelette kind of day, Al made one too.

  3. Good to know there is no age limit any more on blood donation. I'll have to check on that around here as I haven't been doing it because I thought I was too old. I used to,from time to time. And a long time ago when I was 21, I tried to sell it and could only squeeze out a half pint. Was so upset to see it tossed into the trash!! Ha. Apparently they need the entire little bag. My blood type is rare, so I will check into this. Thanks.
