Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 20th day of July, 2017.

Almost the weekend …. not like I am wishing time away or anything.

Talk about crazy weather.

One day it is 30 and so hot in the house and the next day it is COLD in the house and cool outside.

Truthfully I am pleased that it is not 30+ as I think it is too hot.

The air is filled with smoke from the fires in our neighbouring province British Columbia.

If our air quality is so bad here, I can only imagine what it is like there.

I wish for rain and no lightning.

I wish that no human starts a fire.

 

Well the countdown is on until my company arrives which is a few days before my birthday.

My beloved sister is coming to stay with us and arrives in the evening of the 4th of August.

We are excited.

Starting this weekend we will start to prepare.

First off, I have been making the lists so that nothing is forgotten and so that everything is perfection.

Excited that my baby brother will be joining us a few days later.

Excited does not cover how I am feeling right now.

It is hard to remain focused and on task at work.

But I will get things done and be ready for my two weeks vacation when it arrives.

So happy to have two whole weeks off in a row.

First time in almost six years.

Party time …..

 

Happy Thursday Everyone.

Special Hello to:  all those folks who are taking vacation or are on vacation – enjoy.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

P.S.  one of my friends and co-workers gave me some fresh herbs out of her garden.  One smells of oranges and the other is spearmint.  Heavenly.

 

Thought for the day……

Good Monday Morning and welcome to July 9th, 2012.

WOW, July 9th, and summer is here in full force.

The forecast for this week in Edmonton is in the 30’s …. HOT.  Factor in the humidity and today is supposed to be closer to 40.

Now that is hot for here.

Thank goodness I have central air.  My grand-puppies will join Mr. Alvin for the day and likely for the week so that they can keep cool.

All is well here in Edmonton.

The lawn mowing fairy or angel came to my place yesterday while I was at my part-time job (Bath & Body Works).

So it was so great to come home to find the grass out front mowed.  Thank you neighbour.

I am very grateful for my neighbours.

The other one brought over some treats before I left for work yesterday…. some fresh herbs and strawberries from her garden and some homemade mini cheesecakes….. HEAVEN.

I had one of the cheesecakes for dessert last night and it was dreamy.

Alvin spent the day with his sister and family.

I am so blessed.  But enough about me.

I hope that you all had a great weekend and are ready to get back to the normalcy of the week.

Did you have a “TO DO” list?  How did you do?

I usually have a list and make sure to put the two most important chores at the top.

If you get them done ….. then the rest can always wait.

Well today is my early day to start work so have to finish getting ready.

I hope that you have a great day and enjoy the weather.

Special Hello: to all those great neighbours …… SALUTE…… CHEERS …. YOU ROCK.

Always, Carol and Alvin
