Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 22nd day of October, 2016.

It is about 8:44 a.m. here in Edmonton.

The sky is clear and the sun is coming up and is bright.

There is FROST.

The leaves on the front lawn are covered in frost and there remains a bit of snow on the edge of the lawn.

I plan to give the front lawn once last rake this weekend.

The forecast is for a nice day so let us hope the temperature rises.

This will be the fourth time that I have raked the leaves over the last few weeks.

Most of the leaves are from various neighbour’s trees ( I can tell from the colours ).

My leaves are always YELLOW.

This morning after it warms up a tad I plan to go on one last trash pickup in the neighbourhood.

The walkway that I take coming home after work from the bus is disgusting.

I cannot believe how many take out coffee cups and disposable food containers and bags are lying there on the ground and under the rose bushes.

Likely enough to fill a large garbage bag.

I am debating as to whether or not I can manage to do the whole area as the bags get heavy.

When I used to do the area that I have cleaned for years my daughter and my son-in-law lived about half way round so I could drop any full bags off

at their house.

Now that is not the case.

So a dilemma, I have.

I guess I will wait and see how strong I feel.

As things will be a bit wet from the heavy frost we shall see.

I am excited to get that cleaned.

Just wished that people would take more care.

Please just carry their trash home with them and dispose of it properly.

I guess I will put in yet another request to the neighbourhood association to please put in a trash barrel.

But then who looks after that …..

The City or the Association.

Somedays you cannot win.

Oh well.

It is great exercise and fun trying to keep away from the thorns of the roses bushes that line the walkway that I will be cleaning.

Thank goodness that I have one of those trash pickers….

Enough complaining, I apologize.

It is the weekend.

Time for toast with honey, share a banana with Mr. Alvin and have a cup of coffee before heading out.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

I wish you sunshine and laughter.

Enjoy the weekend.

Oh, tonight is the night that we set our clocks back.

Alvin has already done so.

Special Hello to: my sister …….

Always, Carol and Alvin
