Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 11th day of July, 2017.

What a difference in temperatures between Sunday night and last night.

It really cooled down.

Did not even need the fan on during the night.

The sudden drop in temperature always freaks me out a bit as it generally means a storm is brewing.

They did forecast some tornadoes in central Alberta last night.

We are grateful to sleep with just the window open.

Well Mr. Alvin did not sleep through the night last night.

I am beginning to think that it had something to do with the “fan.”

Will try with fan on tonight and see what happens.

Having a small rain shower at this moment.

The air is cool and crisp ….. thank goodness for a cool house.

 

Just thinking about this ….. due to the cancellation of my bus in the morning …. I now arrive later but on time of course.

So instead of worrying about making coffee ….. one of my co-workers who changed her work schedule just recently ….. well she just whips up a couple of pots.

Thinking of me ….. they are ready for when I arrive.

How lucky am I?

I guess what goes around comes around …..

So for the summer I will have my morning coffee made for me.

In the fall when the bus schedule returns to norm …. I will gladly assume my coffee making duties.

What a great life I have….

 

I was thinking about great it would be to have 1,000 followers on my blog.

Years ago when I first started writing this blog on Word Press, I so badly wanted 1,000,000 followers.

Perhaps that was a bit on the high side.

Now reality has set in and this small town …. big city girl is grateful to have 665 followers.

Shooting for 1,000 ….. why not?

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who read my blog.  I am so grateful.  This is making my dreams come true.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 30th day of March, 2015.

Well we are well into spring and not unlike past ones we always seem to be surprised when we get moisture.

Not today though.

But the last couple of days you never know.

Some rain would be nice …. clean things up a bit.

I am excited to see the street cleaners come down the street dusting and washing away the gravel and bits from winter.

I will be out soon cleaning up the neighbourhood.

Two more shifts left at the store.

I am excited and sad.

Spring is renewal and I plan to renew my lease on life.

Getting out there and doing things.

Keeping busy.

Me and Alvin both need to pursue evening walks with no hesitation or cancellation.

Soon the buds will turn into leaves ( I am thinking there are buds even though I haven’t really seen any ) and the robins will start to return.

I love robins.

Reminds me of my youth.

Just for some reason.

I do remember seeing many a robin’s egg and to this day I love that turquoise colour.

On this second last day of March, I wish you a pleasant reminder of your youth.

Happy Monday.

Special Hello to: all of my neighbours around the world ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
