Thought for the day…..

Today is Good Friday …. April 6th, 2012.

The sun is shining and the air is calm which is quite refreshing from the heavy snowfall of yesterday at this time.

When I arrived at work yesterday the power was off so we sat in the lobby until the lights were restored, then it was a few hours before our computers were back up and running.

There were huge branches down all over the area where our office is located.  Some had fallen on vehicles and others were blocking sidewalks and streets.

It was quite the spring storm.  At home, the deck and back yard look like the middle of winter….  When I was shovelling on the deck last night it was like shovels full of water, so heavy.

As I pushed the snow off the deck it rolled into balls of sort.  Perfect snowmen weather.

Well it was interesting, and now that the air has cleared the temperatures should warm up and the snow will melt and we shall have spring flowers blooming and the grass and the trees…. YAY.

I have to get into gear as I am going out in a little bit to work on the Census ….. I want to get finished by the end of this weekend.

So from our home to yours …..  I hope that you have a happy, safe and wonderful Easter Weekend…

Special Hello: to my sister who has returned home from a vacation to the U.S.

Always, Carol and Alvin ….

Thought for the day…..

Good Thursday morning …… today is April the 5th, 2012.

When I awoke this morning and looked out the window I was “semi surprised” to see a heavy white blanket of snow covering everything in sight.

We were forewarned of the snowfall but I was keeping the sunshine and clear skies in my thoughts but alas we got the snow.

Oh well, as it happened on Sunday ….. it soon melted once the sun came out.

Moisture is good.  It will also freshen up the ground …… 🙂

Today is the last day of the work week for me and so many others.

I am going to spend the weekend working on and “completing” my route for the Census.

I enjoy meeting more of my neighbours.

Also it will be great to sleep in a bit each morning …..

I WISHED that Alvin would wake up at 7:00 (he is an early bird usually before 5:00 most mornings).

Oh well, early is good, too.  I have a great life even with the early starts…. 🙂

I wish for the days ahead that you are surrounded by those you love, magic and laughter.

Take care ….. if you are travelling ….. slow down ….. keep your cell phone in the glove box (compartment) or in your pocket/purse and have a wonderful long Easter weekend.

Happy Easter (early) …..

Special Hello:  to YOU

Always, Carol and Alvin
