Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 12th day of January, 2017.

Although I thought it was warmer yesterday – the temperature was warmer – but there were huge wind gusts all day.

At some points while standing and walking to and from the bus I thought I may blow away.

Now I think that would be quite the feat but nevertheless it was a strong possibility yesterday.

Today the temperature has fallen again but seems to be calm.

I have secured another ride with my neighbour.

Thank goodness for her.

I am so blessed.

Otherwise I would be walking to the bus stop and catching the bus.

Do not get me wrong it is not a bad thing but as you get a bit older the cold seems to affect you more.

Anyway when I have a ride I am grateful.

When I do not have a ride I am grateful.

At the end of it all I have a ride whether by car or by public transportation.

Mr. Alvin is patiently waiting for some nicer weather so that we can go for some overdue walking.

I just have felt with his poor little legs and the fact that it is pretty clear that he has the onset of arthritis that staying in the house instead of being out in the cold is a much better course of action.

He is taking glucosamine (I think I have the spelling right as there are no red lines, yay me).

Sometimes trying to spell words this early in the morning is not easy.

I love to spell and use new words when I can.

I will tell you this that we have been enjoying quiet evenings.

Once I get home from work and do the shovelling …. I am pooped.

The snow was drifted in on my front walk and was hard as nails.

It was not easy to shovel but I managed.

We did a quick cleaning of the deck (did not do the driveway).

Actually I am hoping that the driveway did not collect as much with the wind.

Oh, winters in Canada.

Oh, winters in Western Canada.

Oh, winters in Alberta.

Oh, winters in Edmonton.

Well almost time to finish getting ready.

It is almost funny that most of our conversations in the winter in Canada revolve around weather.

Could be worse, I suppose.

Have an awesome day.

Keep warm – Stay safe.

Special Hello to: my friend “V” …….

Always, Carol and Alvin
