Cleaned Up, Getting Support and Finding A Purse.

 Our Location today is Windsor, Ontario.

I’ve found that if I don’t vary my sleep hours too much it is easier on my personal metal and physical well being. Looking back as a child I couldn’t understand why my father always wanted to go to 7:00 Sunday Mass waking the rest of us before our normal wake up time. He was doing it for his benefit forgetting about the rest of us. Since I slept an Hour later yesterday getting up at 6:30 I did the same today.

I had a dream that by doing so I could get my morning chore completed early opening the rest of the day to share with Kathy. The chore was doing the Laundry and after sorting everything in the Apartment it was a quick start when I got down to the Laundry Room. Since they are open Twenty-Four Seven I wasn’t surprised to find a Dryer running when I arrived.

Back at the Apartment I had just turned on my Computer after getting things ready for breakfast when Kathy joined me. We finished eating our English Muffins before taking our Hot Chocolates over to the Computers. Mine had some cool down time while I went to move our clothes from the Washers to the Dryers. I managed to get a lot read while the Dryers did their thing.

I was happy to be putting away the Folded Laundry by 10:30 so I was able to see what most of our Canadian and American Snowbirds were doing to make me jealous. I noted not only the good things most are enjoying but also the trying times some are having with their RVs and Vehicles which seemed to bring back memories of similar incidents that we went through ourselves.

The best part of the morning was when the Sun broke through the Clouds that we have been plagued with for the last few days. Forecasts showed things would green up by this afternoon. Even though the temperature was high enough the breeze managed to keep the White Ground Cover in place.

We needed a piping hot bowl of Split Pea with Ham Soup to warm us at lunch time along with another Hot Drink with an Orange and Fruit Cake for dessert. We let lunch settle before heading out the door. Since Kathy is more susceptible to the cold she stayed in the Apartment while I cleaned both the Car and Truck. When that was completed I simply called her on the phone before driving to the rear door to pick her up.

We needed to go to both Micheal’s and Princess Auto. With a recent move they are now neighbours sharing the same building. To save time Kathy went to Michael’s to get a special glue that will keep patches on my Coveralls from pealing off while I went to Princess Auto to get tools that were “Half Price” to replace more of the ones I had stolen. Having purchased many of them many Years ago I was surprised at the dramatic increase in their value.

We were soon headed back to the Dollarama we always patronize. Along with the usual Food Stocks we normally purchase here we were on the hunt for something else. Since Kathy has been wearing the Knee Supports we purchased there she has been having less issues with her Knees. I’ve also noticed that after days where I spend most of them on my Knees even with the Knee Pads they have been bothering me. For the low cost of the Knee Supports at Dollarama she encouraged me to get a pair to help me recover and I encouraged her to to get another pair as a Backup. Would you believe they only had Two Packages instead of the Six we wanted.

Going to Zehr’s grocery store we got everything else on our Shopping List and were out of there in a flash.

We were about to leave when I mentioned needing new Running Shoes for the Winter so we drove across the road to Walmart. The last Two Winters I had worn the Safety Boots I am now wearing at work. When they were purchased they were not a Perfect fit but the Best fit at the time and my feet have been telling me so. Finding the Perfect fit in my size as I sat to try them on we noticed someone’s Purse sitting on the Bench. While I got in line to purchase the new Safety Boots Kathy brought the Purse to the Service Desk. Before I was checked out the young woman was thanking us for handing in her Purse.

All that shopping worked up our appetites and we still had to put everything away. We went to Arby’s Drive-Thru where we ordered their Greek Gyros for supper. We sat in the Car in their parking lot to eat them hot. As we ate we could see heavy Clouds started filling the sky again.

We stopped at the Dollarama that is closest to our building. We were hoping that by chance they might have those Knee Supports in stock. We lucked out as they were just stocking their shelves.

Before we could get everything unloaded at our building it was starting to Snow again. Kathy got things put away in the Fridge while I got the Canned Goods and other Food Stocks put away which meant kneeling on a hard Ceramic Floor without Knee Pads. I’ll be using those Knee Supports tomorrow.

The 6 o’clock Local News only reported Provincial Coronavirus Cases and the growing fear of more Restrictions being imposed because of the new South African Variant that is infecting people who have been Double Vaccinated.

The Weather Network showed we had a high temperature today of 37 F (3 C) feeling like 27 F (-3 C). We could see more moderate temperatures for a few days this week.

A recent study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.
