2021

Good Morning ALL. How are you doing today? It is Thursday, January 21, 2021. I almost wrote 2025. Don’t want to rush the years. What a day yesterday. The winds howled pretty much most of the day and with the icy sidewalks we decided to stay close to home and did not go for our usual lunchtime walk. Fingers crossed today will be better. I don’t hear the wind at this time so perhaps we shall be able to go at noon.

What a Wednesday, January 20, 2021! The Inauguration of the United States 46th President and I believe 48th Vice-President. Now we have President Biden and Vice-President Harris in the White House. I think that everyone or mostly everyone all over the world was waiting and watching on pins and needles during the actual inauguration. After Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn in, there was a worldly collective sigh of relief. No matter who or where you are, we all are well aware the state of affairs in the United States. I will admit that I was teary eyed during the ceremony and very relieved when everything was official. A very historic day for the United States in many ways. Congratulations Vice-President Harris. There was even a fun spot in the day, when Al Roker from the Today show called the President over during the parade. President Biden ran over, said hello, fist bumped and then was back to the parade with his family. I would have like to have watched the evening – virtual “gala” but I had to get to bed so I could get up this morning for work. I did record the event and will watch today. Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Garth Brooks all gave very special performances but I think that the young poet laureate Amanda Gorman stole the show at the inauguration. A busy day for all. I guess there will be no rest for the new President and Vice-President.

Well Mr. Alvin is calling me and he is the boss in this house. Or so he thinks.

I wish you all a great Thursday. May your day be filled with much love, laughter and abundance. Continuing to live our lives with kindness, respect and compassion for ALL.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. this Sunday is the big 12th birthday party for Mr. Alvin. I cannot wait.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 20th day of January, 2017.

Another beautiful day on the way.

Alvin had a great Birthday and thank you to everyone for the thoughtful Birthday wishes.

Yay it is Friday ……. seemed like a long week.

Yet the days seem to fly by …. how exactly is that?

Well this morning has certainly flown by …..

Almost time to hit the road ….

 

Today is an important day for our neighbours to the south.

The Inauguration of their “45th” President.

I hope that all goes well.

 

Feeling pretty grateful today as I do most days.

To be surrounded by kind, loving and supportive family and friends.

To be in good health.

To be employed in this market.

To be sheltered by my own house.

To be here, now.

 

Time to go now.

Have a great day.

Most of us are so blessed and we do not even realize ….

Take advantage of life now.

Go out and have fun.

Be kind.

Live your life.

 

Special Hello to:   Happy Friday Everyone.

Always, Carol and Alvin
