Thought for the day…..

Well, here we are at Wednesday, October 24th, 2012 …..

The night air still hangs on as I look out of my office window.

It is that time of year when the night lingers until after 7:00 a.m. and then over the next few weeks it stays even longer.

I know at this time of year …. I find it a little bit tough to get “me” up and about.

I guess it is part of the “preparing for winter” that makes us want to sleep longer.

I feel like the squirrel that has been eating nuts all late summer/fall in anticipation of the winter.

It is one of those mornings …… ah……

I just want to  know one thing?

Why is it that most manufactures of women’s clothing “make the waist to fit just below your natural waist” …… why, oh why.

Okay, enough of that.

Just wondering did you get all of your outdoor prep work done for winter?

Cover the a/c unit?

Put away all of your pots, tools and patio furniture?

Trim your shrubs and plants?

Clean the gutters and windows one last time?

Cut the grass and rake the leaves?

Drain outdoor tap if necessary?

I am always amazed at how many things there are to do around a house …. I spent more than 30 years living in apartments.

The most yard work I had to do was put the pots away from the patio.

So it has definitely been a learning curve ….

Well here it is almost time to leave for yet another day of work.

Work is going well.

So I hope that you have a grand day and remember to enjoy nature …. take a walk …. breathe …..

Special Hello to all those new homeowners….. enjoy …. it does take work.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
