Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 8th day of March, 2019.

Woke up extra early ….. Alvin needed to go outside.

Then we hit the sofa for more sleep.

As our sofa is so comfy, I always make sure to set the timer on the microwave so that we do not sleep in…..

Only thing with that is ….. have to do it in chunks of 99.99 minutes.

When you are up at 2:30 a.m.  …… you get the picture.

Oh well, it is Friday.

So tomorrow morning it doesn’t matter.

I only thought of this now but I guess I could set the timer on the stove instead of the microwave…..

Holy catfish ….. what a great idea!!

 

We also woke up to SNOW.

Yup, it has been snowing since 2:30 a.m.

Or at least at our house.

Perhaps Mother Nature did this as we were up …..

Creating a bit of magic as with the lights on ….. appeared to be a large blanket of diamonds.

Can you imagine?

A blanket of diamonds the size of my deck.

That would be worth a couple of $2.00.

WOW.

 

Alvin and I went for a walk last night but only went part way before he headed back home.

For the second night in a row there has been a cold breeze.

I hope that tonight it is warm and no wind so that we can go the whole way round.

 

I am grateful that today is Friday.

Three things on my TO DO LIST.

The most important things to get done.

  1.  finish my Income Tax (doing all the extra stuff when you have Commission based business). I will be more prepared next year.  Lesson learned.
  2. wash floors up and down
  3. laundry, always laundry.

I hope that we have good days for walking this weekend.

Two of my friends are back from their month long holidays.

One from Mexico and the other from Hawaii.

Wow, I can only imagine.

Being in a tropical spot ….. laying on a lounge chair on a beach ….. palm trees swaying …. sipping on a fruity drink ….. taking in the sunshine.

Mmmmmmm.

Yup, that would be great.

 

Well I wish you all the very best Friday.

If it is snowing where you are ….. turn on a outside light or look where the street lamps are shining and you will discover a blanket of diamonds.

Truly makes one day.

I can close my eyes and see the snow sparkling.

So beautiful.

 

BE kind to yourself and to others.

BE kind to all the creatures living on this earth.

Remember we share this place.

We DO NOT own this place.

 

Special Hello to: my dear sister ….. close your eyes …. aren’t they pretty?

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 3rd day of February, 2018.

Oh, how I have missed my regular routine of writing.

It has been the longest week of my life.

Even today with only making breakfast, and a couple times up the stairs I still feel a bit on the ill side.

I did not go to work at all this week.

Cannot believe that I missed a whole week.

Thankfully I have had a couple of messages to let me know that a co-worker is helping out with the mail.

Nothing worse than going back to work after being sick to mountains of work.

That would be enough to push the clock back.

 

Perhaps even Alvin is tiring of me being at home.

It almost seems that way.

 

Last night I did push a bit of snow around on the deck and out front.

Likely not the best idea.

But I did the back first and then rested (not really shovelled well).

When I shovelled the front it was not a job well done for sure but it was all that I could muster up the energy to do.

I can see the garage roof tops covered in a thick blanket of snow.

I can only imagine what is on the roof of the house.

Hopefully our roofs can handle the weight.

 

Well today I am going to venture out and go to the Doctor.

One of my friends is going to drop me off on her way out but I am on my own to come home.

The walk in all of this snow considering that I am not at full strength kind of frightens me but I will see how I feel when I go to leave the Doctors.

If I feel at all weak, I will call a friend.

Making certain to have phone numbers with me or failing the phone a friend, I will call a TAXI.

There is so much snow and the walk ways will not be shovelled.

 

Well almost time to go and have a shower, to try and feel myself once again.

Giving myself lots of time this morning.

Over two hours until my friend arrives to pick me up.

I am sorry that I was out of commission this week.

Hard to write when you are not feeling well.

I hope that this finds you all well and that you do not get this flu.

It hangs on with a grip that I have not remembered seeing in past experiences.

Take care and if you are not feeling well – stay home.

Our health care providers are telling everyone with the flu to stay home and away from people.

But I need to go for a couple of reasons.

One to ensure that I do not have a bladder infection although I only have/had one symptom and the other for work.

Funny how even sitting typing is tiring.

ARGH.

I want to be healthy again.

Well I should go as it may take awhile to take a shower.

The neighbours just got home and had “fun” walking from their car to the house.

They do not have a garage so it piles up from the garage pad to the house.

Their back yard also has lots of steps which ware hard to navigate in white blinding snow.

Okay time to go.

Have a great day.

Stay warm, dry and healthy.

 

Special Hello to: all my family, friends and fellow bloggers.

Always, Carol & Alvin
