MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

One Big Thing After Another

And it was gone in a flash!!!! Our 51″ big screen TV had disappeared from the curb before 8:30 a.m. After having put it in the garage last night, Nat pushed it out to the curb this morning for pick-up by the City, and it had disappeared before I was even out of bed. Who does that????? I’m not sure whether the City had actually arrived early for it, or someone else had a pick-up truck and grabbed it, but its gone!! 

Nat was up and on his way to Ridgeway before 8:00 a.m. Wanted to get an early start, and because I had a bad night with this cold, I stayed in bed again. By the time I got up and going it was close to 9:00 and I’m not sure why I even got out of bed. There’s nothing left to do around here until closer to the end of next week, so I’ve been mucking about on the computer most of the morning and getting caught up on my podcasts. So now I’m bored as hell and it’s only mid-afternoon!!

As the appliances are being delivered tomorrow, along with our new TV, I’m going to make myself go with Nat in the morning. Besides I really want to get some of the cleaning finished. I brought home all of the face plates from the light switches on Monday and manged to get them all washed yesterday. Couldn’t believe how many there were!!! So I’ll get them put back on the finished walls tomorrow when I go back. I’m also wanting to paint the inside of the kitchen pantry and clean the cupboards. Afterall the kitchen is pretty much the heart of any home and you can’t live without a heart!!

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.
