It is a NEW YEAR.

Well the sky is overcast this morning in Edmonton.

Alvin and I have been up for a bit now.

Just pondering the situation of the world.

This CORONAVIRUS has made some people into selfish bastards.

Or perhaps just shown their true selves.

I am going to use that word because that is what it seems.

Why else would anyone need to scour their towns and cities and buy up carts full of bathroom tissue.

It started there.

Now people are buying up meat in large quantities, cleaning supplies and all sorts of food items.

Lineups are out the door at grocery stores.

As the shelves become more bare and the stores are not able to keep up with the demand, as more and more people are infected.

Over time of course, this will affect the truck drivers bringing the food items to us.

What about the farmers, the factory workers and so on.

What will happen?

Greed through the ages and in 2020 it is running as rampant as ever.

If you think that it is funny or that you are out to make a profit ….. guess again.

At some point it will come back and bite you in the ass.

This whole thing has made me just plain mad and oh, so disappointed in the human race.

I know that it is not everyone but come on people.

If we stay calm and follow the “rules” set out by our Health Care Providers we will be okay.

Yes, I know that there will be deaths and that is of course very tragic and I could be one.

NO one knows.

But please this is 2020 and we should have learned a lesson or two by now.

 

I will, me, myself and I remain calm in this STORM.

Panic, I will not.

I promise to do the best to help others who cannot help themselves.

Please remember those who live from cheque to cheque.

There are many of us on the planet.

Ranging from young to old.

Buy what you need as you normally would.

 

As the snow gently hits the ground, I am in the realization that I am okay.

Alvin and I have food in the fridge and the pantry.

We have a warm home to live in.

I am grateful to all those who make this all possible for us every day.

Those folks who work in jobs where there is no “staying home” to weather this storm.

The Nurses, the Doctors, the City Employees and the list is long.

We are grateful to you.

Keep safe and in good health.

 

I hope that you have a good Saturday.

Be in good health.

Be KIND AND RESPECTFUL in all that you do most especially at this time.

 

Always, Carol &  Alvin

 

Remember the government, politicians and other leaders cannot do this by themselves, it is up to each one of us to do our part.

We are all human beings and must work together.

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 23rd day of March, 2016.

Mid week …..

Actually for me only today and tomorrow to work as it is an extra long weekend for us.

I am so grateful to have some extra time off.

Alvin is going after work to his Sisters for a sleepover until Friday.

She will bring him home and stay for a visit …. I always LOVE her visits.

So I packed him food, treats (cooked carrots as they have to be soft), his blue blanket and his medicine.

He loves his blue blanket.

This was the special blanket that his Foster Parents gave him when I adopted him.

The blanket covers the seat and arms of the chair by the window so he lays on it every day except laundry day.

Amazingly enough the blanket looks like new and it is six years old.

I will miss him as I always do but it is important for him to spend time with his sister, brother-in-law and Elton.

He will have fun for sure.

 

I have been thinking as of late about all of the children and animals that are not allowed to live proper happy, safe lives because of ADULT human beings.

There is always an add on television or on social media about the abuse and neglect going on across this planet.

It breaks my heart and whenever I hear or see these stories I just want to give the person doing these terrible atrocities  a SMACK across the head (I know violence does not help).

I am outraged at these ongoing actions and it hurts to my core.

POWER,  MONEY and downright GREED …..

Something needs to be done.

This needs to be stopped.

What is wrong with these people?

My wish is that every living creature on this planet is able to live their entire lives in peace, happy and safe.

We all deserve this ….. EVERY creature big or small.

 

I hope that you would intervene if you saw a child or an animal being neglected or abused.

It is up to us to help …..

 

Well it is time to get ready to leave for work.

I hope that you have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those people who work hard each day to bring goodness and light to every person and animal they encounter.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 2nd of October, 2013.

I hope you are doing great this morning. 

I am feeling wonderful.

 

Last night I moved all of my outdoor furniture and plants into the garage.

They were forecasting the “wet white stuff” but it looks like only rain this morning, YAY.

 

One thing I am curious about ….. how often do you over think things?

Do you play things over and over in your head before acting?

It is different to think about what you are going to say in a situation.

I know sometimes I wished that I had thought things through a bit more before opening my mouth.

I think that for most people there are situations that we are comfortable with making a quick decision, and not over thinking things.

I think that when it is something we are uncomfortable with we hesitate and mull things over and over.

I do believe that most people do not like confrontation.

We as a race I think tend to be passive more than aggressive.

That being said I think our emotions might drive us to be aggressive in situations.

Emotions like fear, anger and greed.

I know when I am uncertain about something I tend to play it over and over in my head.

If I had just thought about it and acted upon it sooner than later, I would have saved myself some agony.

Well something to think about…..

Where do you fall?

I hope this makes sense ……. early morning thoughts ……. ah, my comfy bed……

Special Hello to: THINKERS

Always, Carol and Alvin
