Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning.

Saturday ….. it is.

Humphrey just joined us for the day.

Teddy arrives around 9:30 a.m.

In between my daughter is coming to drop off and pick up some things.

We are also going to hit the grocery store as we both need some items there.

Around the company and shopping, I am cleaning for the jewelry party tonight.

Lots to do.

Last night I baked several dozen of my “Chocolate Chip Cookies.”

I have not baked cookies for a long time.

Was nice to have the smell of cookies baking wafting throughout the house.

We woke to crusty frozen grass (as both Alvin and I found out when we were in the backyard).

There is a skiff of snow near the gutters on the street and in the grass.

The deck is icy so I was careful.

I have changed my bedding and cleaned the main bathroom; changed towels both upstairs bathrooms.

Just have to dust upstairs, just touch up my bathroom as it is cleaned daily and vacuum up here.

The stairs and then only have downstairs to do.

I definitely will be enjoying some coffee in the near future.

I called Humphrey to come upstairs but not sure where he disappeared to at this moment as my sight line is only the office.

Alvin is here, of course.

Oh well will see him shortly.

 

Edmonton had some wicked strong winds in the afternoon yesterday.

Two maintenance workers on a swing-stage platform on the Stantec Tower were left dangling.

I watched part of a video that clearly showed the platform being whipped about and one worker was dangling on the end.

Holding on for dear life.

The Edmonton Fire Rescue Crews responded to perform a high angle rescue.

The video was so scary and I cannot imagine how they were feeling.

The news reported that the platform was lowered to the ground.

Fire crews in addition to rescuing the two workers were cleaning up glass.

The building has all glass windows.

Several windows were broken.

Luckily no one was injured by the falling glass.

Good thing they had on safety harnesses.

Mother Nature is more powerful than man.

Someone should have been paying attention to the wind velocity.

Most especially on a skyscraper.

They were several floors up …. fire thought about 6-7 floors.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you have an awesome Saturday.

 

 

Always, Carol & Alvin & Humphrey ……
