Saturday Has Arrived And We Are Ready!

I used to think I was indecisive. But now I’m not so sure.

Today was chocked full of activities starting with a terrific breakfast of cereal!  Yes, I said cereal.  We had two steaks in the freezer, and I planned to cook them up for breakfast.  Well, while teasing my bride, I said, “Let’s have cereal for breakfast.”  She thought me serious, silly girls.  I had the grill on and was ready to plot the steaks on, and I see Mary coming out the door with two bowls of, of, I can’t say it… cereal!  I turned off the grill, and we had the most delicious cereal, something new I never had before!

Mary has the most interesting pantry!

After breakfast, we popped into the swim spa for a little bit, and then Mary had to get ready to go shopping with Robin and Cici.  They are shopping for party goods for our future shindig.  They also went to Rockwell’s for breakfast.  Mary’s gets Elf Poop and then a real breakfast; I am stuck with Elf Poop!

I stayed behind because our window washer was scheduled at noon, and we were also expecting the delivery of our grandfather and grandmother clocks.  The clocks came first, and they sound so amazing.  The two-month visit to the clock spa did them a world of good.  They are set two minutes apart so we can hear them separately.  Did you know you can tell when your clock is hungry? It goes back four seconds.

The place was awash in people because Tom was also over the was doing some work in the bathroom, and he shortened two doors so they would go over the carpet easier.  The handyman asked when he should come to fix the hinges. I said anytime. The door’s always open.

It was a hot day, so late afternoon we retired to our master bedroom and watched a Bruce Willis movie and partook in a glass of vino!  Later in the evening, we snapped a shot of our back yard which is coming along nicely.

It’s going to be magnificent when we get the 400 square-foot dance floor installed, and the dance floor will be covered with 80 bistro-lights!

We crashed at 8:00 PM, and then, amazingly enough, we were up at midnight watching another Bruce Willis movie until 2:00 AM.  It’s great being retired.

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
