Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 7th day of  June, 2016.

The sun is shining and it is calm this morning after an evening and overnight filled with thunder and lightning.

Despite Mother Nature’s good attempts “no rain.”

 

I had the most strange dreams during the early morning hours and after we hit the sofa for some extra zzz’s.

I had sold my house and moved into this old apartment.

It was huge.

When I was going through the cupboards I noticed there were foil pans, a mop bucket (they were floor to ceiling cupboards) and lots of odds and ends.

This always makes me nervous.

So much so that I cannot take things out of the cupboard.

Then I noticed that there was water under the window.

The floor was slanted so it was about a foot of water on the floor.

Just on the one side of the room.

Very strange.

So I called the maintenance guy.

He said that an old woman had been running the water in the sink when she died.

I found it strange that after all that time no one cleaned it up.

Why had I not seen this apartment before I moved in?

Anyway there was a bit more but it was strange.

I do not remember Alvin but someone had been there with me visiting and called out from another room  “oh no, there is a mouse.”

Anyway I am sure he was there somewhere …… because I do not go anywhere without him.

It is funny the things that we dream.

 

Back to reality.

Almost time to leave for work.

Gotta run.

Argh.

 

Special Hello to: all those people who have odd dreams.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 16th day of May, 2016.

Another gorgeous morning, sun shining and blue sky.

There has been smoke in the air due to all of the forest fires in the province.

Well another weekend come and gone.

We have all felt as of late that the weekend seem to be evaporating.

I know that I have mentioning this before but it feels so real.

Feels as though the minutes go by doubly fast on the weekend.

Too many things to do and not enough time.

I must get back to multi-tasking once again.

This coming up weekend I am hosting a multi-family garage sale on both Friday and Saturday.

We have been cleaning our closets, basements and cupboards to remove our treasures from our homes.

We know that there are people out there who love to find new treasures at good prices.

I know that this is going to be the BEST garage sale ever.

Also I am hosting a “tea tasting party” on Monday on Victoria Day.

A good day for a tea party on the Queen’s Birthday.

Alvin is resting on the foot of our bed …. I think it is his favourite spot in the house.

He can look out of the window onto the neighbourhood and see what is going on.

Most days when I come home from work I can hear a thud as he jumps off the bed onto the thick rug and down the stairs.

Well time to go.

I hope that you are having better luck with getting your tasks accomplished.

Other than multi tasking I need to start doing things right away ( I will admit that I have become a bit of a procrastinator at times).

Special Hello to: all those folks hosting a garage sale, good luck to you and I hope that you sell it all.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 11th day of November, 2015.

Today should be all about remembering and it would have been that way …. until about 23 minutes ago.

There is a dark shadow lingering in my house.

Alvin and I got up about 4:30 a.m. …. per usual and then once he had eaten and gone outside we hit the sofa for some extra ZZZ’s.

It was about 6:15 when Alvin jumped up off the sofa and tore off into the kitchen.

My heart skipped a beat.

I jumped up onto the arm of the sofa and turned on the kitchen light and found Mr. Alvin in hunting stance by the stove.

He was sniffing and barking and barking and sniffing.

So I know that this is some creature that does not belong in our house behind the stove.

He stood there what seemed like forever ….. then walked back and forth to the fridge sniffing as he went…

He walked over across the room and just starred at the stove.

I quickly moved his water dish into the living room and ran upstairs as somehow I feel safe up here.

We are in my office with the door semi closed so he has to stay with me.

He is whining at the door so I know my day will not be as planned and my near future is scary.

It is too early to be calling my neighbour but we shall hang out here as long as I can keep him here.

My daughter and son-in-law live too far away.

I feel so alone.

Thank goodness for Mr. Alvin otherwise I would not have known.

It is funny one should be here as I just moved some boxes of food from the upper cupboards back into the pantry.

They are up on the higher shelves in the pantry but it was likely not a smart move.

When I can I will be placing all boxes into a rubbermaid container for safe keeping.

Why is it they have to come into my house?

I keep a clean house.

There are not bits of food laying about.

My heart is racing and I just want it gone.

I want my house back again.

I could just cry …. my eyes are tearing up and my throat rasping …

What do I do?

I am afraid that Mr. Alvin will catch it and OMG I do not want it in his mouth.

He is standing at the door to the office … now pacing.

I know that he wants to go back downstairs and but I cannot.

I feel almost glued to the chair.

I wished that I had a solid row of cats that were hunters standing all around my house protecting us ….

It could be an invisible row ….

Please bring magic to me now.

I am afraid.

I have to make a decision shortly before Alvin goes crazy.

Time to call my neighbour …. my saviour.

I just want to be snoozing on the sofa. ….. why today?

I guess better today than tomorrow.

 

Special Hello: to all those folks in my position…. I understand

Always, Carol and Alvin
