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

Thought for the day…..

Good Evening and Welcome to Monday the 23rd day of March, 2015.

Sorry …. what a morning …..

I decided to go back to sleep for a few extra minutes.

Then my kids both were sick so had to make other arrangements for the ride to work.

My daughter said I could take the car but I decided not today.

So I called my neighbour.

We both work downtown.

The first time the call went to voicemail.

The second time she answered and said she had been running late and had wanted to be gone already ….

Lucky for me I had ten minutes before she was going to leave so I brushed my teeth, put on my eyebrows, got dressed, rushed downstairs, grabbed my lunch, grabbed my boots, purse, bag and coat … locked the door and was gone (in less than ten minutes).  WHEW.

I got to work by 6:50 a.m.

Anyway … I felt bad as I was not able to write my morning blog.

“Forgive me” …….

After rushing …. sometimes that can jinx your day but I actually had a very productive awesome day.

When I got home I made a quick trip to the grocery store.

NOTE TO SELF:  EAT SOMETHING BEFORE YOU GO GROCERY SHOPPING.

Argh …. spent way too much ….. reminder for next time.

My veggie burger is in the oven so I thought this would be the perfect time to send you all a little note.

Better late than never, I suppose.

Also, talk about mucky out there ….. melting snow …… mud ….. dirt …..gravel…..

I sure hope that you guys had an awesome day.

Well time to go and get the trimming ready for my burger ….. the bun, avocado, mustard, cheese …. my mouth is watering.

Have a great evening.

Special Hello to: my new friend “Lisa” …. thank you so much for reading my blog.

Always, Carol and Alvin
