It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and welcome to a bright sunny morning here in Edmonton.

I have not been outside as yet this morning but I think it may be cooler than yesterday at this time.

Nice to see a bright clear sky, though.

Doing a little seated Happy Dance.

 

We had a busy but productive day yesterday here at our home.

We walked to the Vet in the morning to pick up supplies.

Home to have coffee and start laundry.

Did some cleaning followed by a walk in the afternoon.

My neighbour D and his son K came over early evening to see about moving the cabinet from the garage to the basement.

After checking out the cabinet, D decided to measure the cabinet and the entrance way to the basement.

Too tight of a squeeze.

Would not be easy to get downstairs.

How disappointing.

I would not have thought it would not fit.

Earlier I had moved things around and was planning what to move into this cabinet.

It was such a great idea and what disappointing news.

Now what?

I don’t know.

Have to think about it.

Rearranging again.

Now might as well wait until I take down the Christmas decorations next weekend.

Plan B.

Argh, why?

Clearly this is going to take me a few days to get over.

Yup, it is.

Simple as that.

What a waste to have sitting in the garage.

I don’t want to put tools in it as they would scratch the finish.

Besides I really don’t have anything that would fit nicely into the cabinet.

Maybe I will ask for further advice from my friend down the street.

I clearly am not ready to give up on this.

 

Well time to get this day going.

I did not sleep last night.

Alvin ate something while we were out for our walk and of course later in the evening just before bed, he threw it up.

Between the news of the cabinet, Alvin not feeling well and likely the black tea I was drinking over the course of the evening, I did not sleep.

I even left my phone downstairs so the 5:00 a.m. alarm would not wake us but Alvin woke up anyway.

So downstairs to feed him and let him outside.

Then we hit the sofa ….. managed to have a semi broken sleep until just before 9:00 a.m.

 

Tonight are the Golden Globe awards with Ricky Gervais hosting.

I really like him.

Have recorded it but will definitely be watching.

 

I wished that I could smell the coffee that has now perked but I am congested so cannot.

Have a Happy Sunday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 18th day of February, 2017.

The sky is overcast and there is forecast for snow over the weekend.

Guess we will be walking sooner today than later….

Well it has been a morning already in our house.

Mr. Alvin up at 4:00 a.m. – had his breakfast – outside to do his business.

Back to bed till 7:30 a.m., and we were up again.

Then to the sofa until 8:00 a.m. and up again.

I feel like I have not slept at all.

Not quite sure what to do.

Perhaps stay up later ….

I guess it is not like 7:30 a.m. is early or anything but you know sometimes you just want to lay down.

Perhaps not even sleep ….. just rest your bones so to speak.

Well not in our house.

He is an early riser …..

During the week not a problem because I have to be up anyway but on the weekends ….

Well I should not be complaining as I have a comfy bed, I have lots of things to do and I guess if I were up early they would be done earlier, right?

Forgive the choppy …. nonsensical talk here.

I hope that you have a great day as will I.

Tomorrow we will stay up when he gets up.

I guess if I would have stayed up at 4:00 – all of my laundry would be done.

There is always that …..

Time to hit the shower and really wake up.

Have an awesome Saturday and weekend.

YAY ….. coffee where are you …… need coffee, I think.

I forgot to mention that I started to drink tea in the mornings at work.

I brew some tea in my “Steeped Tea Pop Top Tumbler” which keeps it hot for up to 8 hours and take it to work.

I can sip on it all morning long.

I have been drinking black tea so there is some caffeine not as much as coffee.

I do miss the smell of coffee and the taste.

The reason for doing this was because I have so much opened tea that I need to use and figured it was a good way to do so.

Normally I only drink tea in the evenings after supper.

Back to the shower. …. going now.

Have an awesome Saturday.

 

Special Hello to: my fellow bloggers ….
