2021

Good Morning ALL! Welcome to Wednesday, December 8, 2021, 16 sleeps until Christmas Eve. How are you this morning? Alvin and I are well. We had some freezing rain in the middle of night making for icy roads out there. I just received a text from my daughter advising that she will be working from home today and I am so relieved. Having to drive on the highway for any distance makes me a bit on the nervous side especially since the roads have not likely been sanded as yet.

I cannot believe that we are in the last month of 2021. It seems like only yesterday that we were packing up and working from home. That day was March 16, 2020. Unbelievable that it will be two years in a few months time. Somedays it feels like I have always worked from home. I feel so comfortable and safe and productive working in my abode. No longer having the long commute. Being for Alvin has been wonderful most especially since he is fast approaching 13 years old in January. I wonder how all those folks are doing that adopted a pet during the pandemic and are going back to work. Also, I wonder what the percentage is of people that will remain working from home. Most especially in the large cities where the employers leased office space for example. Those employers can reduce overhead by having their employees continue to work from home. Personally this has been the best thing to happen to me in my work life. I love being at home. Did I say that already? Anyway it has been wonderful and I am grateful that my employer has given us the choice. Given the choice would you prefer to work at home?

Yay, I figured it out. Yesterday I had some technical difficulties with WordPress but I finally got it fixed, all by myself.

The clock is ticking away and getting closer to work time. I hit the snooze button twice this morning with good reason someone who shall remain nameless woke up at 1:30, 2:30, 4:30, 5:00 to eat and then back until 6:45. I wonder if it is an age thing? Anyway, I am okay. He will nap off and on all day anyway.

I am looking forward to another mug of the Starbuck’s Christmas Blend coffee. It is my favourite blend of all time. Smooth and not bitter. Tad of sweetness but not overwhelming. Just the perfect blend for coffee. If you have not tried it yet and are a coffee drinker, I highly recommend purchasing a bag.

I wish you a glorious day. Don’t worry things will work out. Close your eyes and think of your favorite person or item on the planet. Then just breathe.

Continuing to live with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, understanding, laughter and gratitude.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. I am with you ….. sometimes you just have to go for it!
