Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 4th day of June, 2016.

Just listening to the buzzing of the lawnmower as my neighbour mows the grass in her backyard.

She has her sister and nephews visiting for the weekend.

Patience she has as she is letting the older boy help mow the grass to earn money to buy a new dirt bike helmet.

I can hear her words of encouragement along the way.

They cut the front and it looks so wonderful.

Looks like all our grass truly needed was the nectar of the gods ….. rain.

So happy for the rain over the past couple of weeks.

The next several days coming up are to be mid twenties.

I am so grateful that I have great neighbours.

We share mowing in the summer (although she is ahead of me) and shovelling in the winter.

I do love having the windows open in the summer and listening to the sounds of summer …. birds singing, lawnmowers, rain drops, people’s voices as they do tasks outdoors.

So happy for the weekend.

 

I must mention about my date with my daughter after work yesterday.

I caught the bus to city hall and in Winston Square they were having a “small container home” on display and you could walk through it.

It was a cool experience and I would say that yesterday there were hundreds of people out to take a peek.

Unfortunately I do not remember the name of the company that makes them but they are made out of shipping containers.

Very modern and sleek in the inside.

The wave of the future.

Minimalist.

People are getting away from the materialistic lifestyle of the last 50 or so years.

They take up less space ….. cost less …. better for the environment.

It was a great experience and I am grateful to my daughter for the invitation.

Over 700 as of yesterday afternoon had RSVP to attend the event over the weekend.

 

Well I guess it is almost time to get this show on the road.

The birthday party is almost at hand.

 

Have a wonderful Saturday.

If it is one thing that I have learned over the past few years and it is less is more.

That is one of the reasons for multiple garage sales ……

We do not need so much …. only trouble is many people think they do.

 

Special Hello to: my niece “D” congratulations on receiving your Nursing Degree ….. we are so proud of you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
