MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

Too Rich For MY Blood

Couldn’t have been a more perfect day! The weather was perfect, our day was leisurely and not a care in the world. WELL, except we made the mistake of going for a drive to look at some Open Houses in Ridgeway and Fort Erie. Big mistake to say the least!! The first Open House was an adult lifestyle community. I get the feeling they’re looking for some of those rich Torontonians, as the houses were upscale, huge and stunning!!! Just a wee bit out of our price range – but God they were nice to look at!! 

The other Open Houses were further down the road – a little closer to our price range, but just enough out of reach to make us a bit jealous and disappointed that we couldn’t swing it. Nice, roomy and open concept, just the way Nat and I like it. Oh well, when donkeys fly and our lotto tickets come in!!!!!

We didn’t regret the drive – it was a great day for it. Plus this morning we sat out on the patio, did the Saturday crosswords, ate our lunch out there and then after our drive had our supper out there. That’s the first time we’ve done that in ages. So back to the grindstone tomorrow – same old, same old!

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
