Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 5th day of February, 2019.

I forgot to wish my niece “M” a very Happy 22nd Birthday for yesterday, February 4th.

We hope that you had a magical day.

 

Welcome back to the deep freeze.

Appears this may last for several days.

We folks that work inside warm buildings are grateful and we think of those souls that work outside so that we may work inside in the warmth.

From Farmers to Constructions to Oil Rig Workers and everything in between, thank you.

Thank you to my sister for reminding me of those who work outside.

 

Well two more sleeps until Mr. Alvin’s surgery.

I know that it will all go well.

But still it is surgery on my boy.

Positive thoughts.

 

I am so grateful to my friend and neighbour for giving me rides to work yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Just catching the bus home is okay.

I am very blessed.

Yesterday the bus driver called ahead when we were at West Edmonton Mall asking 119/117 to please wait for passengers.

The 119 was still there when we arrived (very late) and I would imagine it was late as well.

A young passenger and myself hoped off the bus ahead of the others and ran to the 119, yes, I ran.

Just as we were arriving at the 119 he started to pull away …. we both waved.

He pulled over and we got onto the bus.

I could not believe after all of that, he pulled away as we ran to the bus in full view of the driver.

What a guy.

But happy that in the end he did pull over.

Still was 20 minutes late getting home but at least I did not have to wait likely another 20 minutes for the next bus.

Felt blessed at that moment.

 

Well getting close to time to leave the house.

Still have to do the poop pickup before I leave.

Poor Alvin having to go outside in this bitterly cold weather.

I will say this …. he does not stay out long …. does his thing and back into the house.

I wait right at the back door for him, just in case I need to go and help him.

 

Emergency kits in the vehicle.

Layers while outside.

Pull those big WARM boots out of the closet – you are not making a fashion statement this week in most part of CANADA.

You just want to stay warm and retain all your digits and your life.

Be kind to your pets.

They are living breathing animals such as we, don’t leave them outside in these frigid temperatures.

Doesn’t matter …. just bring them into the house.

Watch the kiddos for signs of frostbite.

Drive them to school.

Or maybe keep them home (most of the buses are cancelled anyway).

 

Happy Tuesday.

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends.  Keep warm…..

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 6th day of June, 2018.

A beautiful morning with sunshine and blue skies.

There remains at this time a bit of coolness to the air.

But to warm up over the course of the day and the next two.

 

Alvin and I enjoyed our walk last night.

Not too many folks out but we did bump into some folks we had met another time.

Last night I went over to my NORWEX Leader’s house for some additional information.

She is a nice person and reminds me so much of a gal that works at Alvin’s Vet Clinic.

They both sound exactly the same and even similar features.

 

Well my carpool starts vacation this afternoon so it will be back to taking the old City BUS until next Tuesday.

Will have to see what is new on public transit.

Likely should check to see if the schedule changed.

 

Funny how you can be dreaming and wake up and are surprised it was not actually happening.

I had such dreams last night well actually just happened while dozing on the sofa this morning.

We had 1.5 hours give or take, well actually take and I had the most bizarre dream.

There were dogs, me, a house, police officers, water, flooding, fake police officers, plants, carpool, work and more.

 

Well almost time to hit the road.

Happy to have a ride this morning.

 

Have a great Wednesday.

Special Hello to: all the dreamers….

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 7th day of September, 2016.

I accidentally typed 2026 and gave myself a quick start.

Can you just imagine what 2026 will be like?

Will be make even more advances in science and technology?

More than the past 50 years?

 

 

Wonder if that chip implant in our arm or hand will become a reality?

With all of our information in one place.

One quick swipe and no need for five thousand plastic cards to be in your purse or wallet.

Although I do think they could have everything on one or two cards.

Personal information on one card and financial on the other.

There would have to be some kind of security with the chip or minimum cards.

Interesting though.

They have started making cars that can drive themselves.

That is likely a good thing ….

With all of the bad drivers or more like bad habits having a “chauffeur” would be more safe.

People could then text to their hearts content.

Will they cure all man’s diseases?

Will we change?

Will we become better people, more compassionate over the next ten years.

Would a few more female heads of state make a difference?

Not sure.

Anyway food for thought.

 

Isn’t it funny how your thoughts can change so quickly.

I was thinking about relating a story about Alvin and his girlfriend and then I accidentally typed “2026.”

Whoops.

Alvin and Abi, a story for another day.

They are so cute.

He was playing kind of hard to get last night.

 

Well here we are almost time to leave for work.

I started catching an earlier bus yesterday so have to leave the house 15 minutes earlier than last week.

Kids are back to school.

The bus was jammed pack full of youngsters both on the way to work and on the way home.

 

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Special Hello to: all those bloggers out there entertaining the world with wit, charm and information.

Always, Carol and Alvin
