It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Wednesday Morning.

The sunrise is amazing and the sky is beginning to clear.

We had a nice light blanket of snow last night.

I heard from the Weather Channel that Sunday we are to have double digits for temperature.

On the plus side, I should add.

Finally, perhaps that will put a serious dent in the snow banks that are lingering about.

I can hardly wait to see buds on the trees.

The birds are beginning to return from down south.

I believe that I mentioned I saw a Robin last week.

So happy about that.

I love them, little robin red-breast.

I have the coffee perking away.

Oh, how I love coffee in the morning.

Alvin is resting on his little bed beside my computer desk.

 

I must say that I never thought in my wildest dreams, did I ever, think that I would be doing my job from home.

Not ever.

Not even a random thought.

Now here I am close to a month into working from home.

Wow, so strange.

I guess we truly never know what is going to happen in the world.

 

Yesterday Alvin and I had two walks.

This is starting to become a habit which is a good thing.

I placed a tea order after our later walk.

One of my friends picked me up a few things from the store.

I believe that we are set for awhile.

Although how could I forget to get “olive oil.”

Anyway not life or death so it can wait for a week or so.

 

Oh, big thing …. I cut my hair.

Oh, yes I did.

I had been wondering how it would work if I used Alvin’s electric hair/fur clippers.

I found that the extensions do not fit on or at least I could not get them onto the clipper.

So I just took the “electric” clipper and starting cutting.

I took off quite a bit and it looks pretty good.

Had to fix some even this morning with my handy dandy hair scissors.

Although next time I would make sure that I dried my hair straight.

What I mean by this is ….. I would not put my hair in a ponytail and then pull through.

So it was curly / wavy when I removed the hair elastic.

But despite that ….. I am pretty happy.

Besides my hair grows fast so why not.

Alvin is lucky as I cut his hair.

I have noticed a lot of doggies are looking a bit on the shaggy side.

 

Well I guess it is time to go and grab my coffee.

Might start work a bit early today.

Just because.

Not because I have to,

Just because.

 

The sun is shining so bright.

Mid week so that is good.

Weekend around the corner.

I hope that you and your family are well.

Stay safe.

Remember there are always the bathroom fans to clean.

Top of the cupboards might need a bit of a dust job.

Basement.

I know I have many things that I can do when I have the time.

Summer is close.

YAY.

 

With kindness and respect.

I/We remain,

As always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 9th day of March, 2019.

WOW, one week into March and one week closer to spring.

The first day of spring is fast approaching but will it be the actual date that spring arrives.

Time will only tell.

This coming week we are to have above zero temperatures and with that more SNOW.

I shovelled twice yesterday …. once being leaving for work and once after Alvin and I went for a walk.

When we walked only about half of my neighbours had shovelled.

Alvin did his hop jump through the snow dragging me behind him.

What a sight that must have been.

For some reason once again we were up about 3:00 and now have been up since before 6:00 a.m.

Early, early for a Saturday.

Normally on the weekend we are up a bit later …. say 10 p.m. and then up about 8:00 p.m.

Not today.

At least on the bright side, I will have my work done early.

By 7:00 a.m. I will have my blog posted, bedding changed, laundry gathered, and the first load of laundry in the washing machine.

Also coffee on and starting breakfast.

Already did some work on my taxes this morning before this post.

I guess there is something to be said for getting up early.

But I am up at 5:00 or earlier during the week ….

Oh well …..

Today will be different …. will see what happens.

 

The sky remains dark out of my office window.

Must be overcast.

No light on the horizon.

ARGH, does that mean more snow for today?

No, please no more snow.

I just want birdies singing, buds on the trees and blades of grass sticking out of the nearly melted snow.

Is that too much to ask?????

Am I having a moment, sorry I am.

 

Well I better hop to it.

Lots to do.

Really looking forward to coffee this morning.

 

Have an awesome day.

Remember …. no matter what happens ….. SPRING is closer than WINTER.

Winter is ending ……

 

Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: all my friends and family ……

Always, Carol & Alvin
