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.

Clean Coveralls, Getting Out and Severe Thunderstorm.

 Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

Even though I woke at the time that I normally do during the week it was easy enough to roll over for some additional sleep on my only day off this week.

When I did get up it looked like I’d have plenty of time to give my Coveralls a last rinse before they would go downstairs. After Three Washes and One Rinse in the Bathtub Pail it didn’t surprise me how Black the water was still coming out.

Apparently I wasn’t as quiet as planned because when I opened the Bathroom Door Kathy was in the process of changing the linens on our Bed. She thought she had slept in and was just working away. As a reward I made us French Toast for breakfast.

Over the last few weeks I’ve discovered that by soaking my feet in an Epson Salts Bath helps relieve Aches and Pains that grow through the Work-Week. When Kathy was experiencing Foot Pain this week I knew how to fix that. I set up the Foot-Bath for Kathy before heading down to the Laundry Room.

I again added a Double Cap of Laundry Soap in hopes of getting more Dirt and Oil out of the Coverall Material.

Back at the Apartment Kathy had just dried her feet and said the Epson Salts did the trick. I used the same Bath to soak my feet and they felt wonderful. I had everything cleaned up before it was time to retrieve my Coveralls. They looked much cleaner and even though the Washer looked clean when wiped out with the Cloth I had to give it an extra cleaning. (Nobody can say I dirtied their clothes.)

It’s hard getting caught up on Blog Reading when I have Two Days in which to do it in. With only a Single Day off I leave even less comments on the Blogs we follow but am still reading them.

For lunch we kept it simple by having Chicken Noodle Soup and a Yogurt Cup for dessert.

What's that in the distance?

With the threat of Severe Thunderstorms this afternoon we were heading out the door before 1:00 with a number of errands to run. It’s bad when you consider running Errands and Shopping as getting out especially since we are temporarily down to One Vehicle.

As we drove along Riverside Drive we were surprised to see a Cruise Boat called Princess made up to resemble the old Steamboats that plied the waters of the Southern Rivers such as the Mississippi.

Our first stop was Guardian Storage first to get our Mail then for going to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. I had some rearranging to do for myself today. As I slowly replace the Stolen Tools that I need at work a Toolbox to store them in is necessary. By moving Tools that stayed in our Trailer around to other Toolboxes I was able to have a one to use without having to buy another.

We stopped at Dollarama where we started gathering Food Stocks that were written on our Shopping List.

From there we went to Zehr’s grocery store in order to get Produce, Dairy Products and Frozen Foods that the other store didn’t carry.

Even with plenty of Clouds starting to fill the sky we made it back to the Apartment dry. The big problem was that every time Kathy stepped outside she felt like she was in a Furnace and could barely breath. Checking The Weather Network it showed we were slightly cooler today with a Humidex of only 109 F (43 C) but it was still too much for Kathy.

For supper we had a Store Bought Medium Thin Crust Vegetarian Pizza. It actually has a little Bite to it but nothing that Kathy couldn’t handle.

Our 6 o’clock Local News was pre-empted by a Golf Tournament that ran into a Play-Off Round to break a tie.

We watched the US News about Hurricane Ida before watching A.F.V. for some laughs. Around 8:00 far off Thunder could be heard. Five Minutes later the Lightning started lighting up our Livingroom and was soon followed by heavy Rain pounding against our Balcony Door.

We’ll see how things go tomorrow with the supposed return of Kharen. I don’t think they want to lose their Welder right now since he’s the only one that knows how Three Projects go together at this time.

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.


An amnesiac walks into a bar. He goes up to a beautiful woman and says, “So, do I come here often?”


  1. Ohhh french toast! Haven't had it in years but it looks so good. Your feels like temps would make me want to stay home..LOL.

  2. Well, then. Khareem returns....I've been wondering. I thought he was off only for two weeks. Glad you have survived so far. What a slog. And to have the truck decide to have trouble. Aieee.
