Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, the 21st day of July, 2017.

This is what happened last night.

The skies got so dark just after 8:00 p.m. and luckily we had made it from our walk with a few minutes to spare.

I knew something was coming.

Well when I was thinking about watching one of my Christmas movies this weekend, perhaps I was not far off the mark.

Part of the deck looked like it had snowed as the hail stones huddled together creating quite the sight.

Like diamonds …. in the sky or on my deck, actually.

I am by no means a photographer and I only have a small Canon PowerShot so some of the photos are out of focus due to the flash and lightning and what not.

But I think they turned out quite cool.

It was hailing on the deck which is on the south side of the house and when I ran to the front which faces north there was no hail and the water was flowing like it was a small river.

I am so grateful for the drainage in my yard as it quickly runs down the middle of the front lawn between my house and the neighbours out to the street and down the storm drain.

It truly looked like a small river running to the street.

There was quite the lightning show and a bit of thunder but not too much.

My poor lilies out front took the brunt of the wind and heavy rain while the flowers in the backyard were pelted by hail stones.

I hope that they survive as I want to show them off to my company in August.

Well Happy Friday.

We are so lucky at my office as we are having a pancake breakfast at 7:30 – 9:00 and then we get to go to the parade for K-Days (Exhibition-Fair) or go home.

I am helping serve the breakfast so will be leaving home extra early to be there before or by 7:30 p.m.

I love pancakes …… which reminds me that would be a good thing to make my company for breakfast a day or two while they are visiting.

Special Hello to: my Sister and my Brother who are coming to visit us, soon.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 18th day of July, 2014.

A bit later than usual here because I was at work for 6:30 to help with a pancake breakfast.

It was a huge success.

Today is the parade for our “K Days” which is our summer fair or exhibition.

 

I wanted to share a cute story with you all.

Yesterday morning after my visit to the dentist, I had stopped at Shoppers Drug Mart which is almost next door to my dentist to pick up an umbrella.

I had walked to the dentist from my house and managed to stay dry.  (my last umbrella broke and I had not replaced it).

Mother Nature was kind ….. it started to rain hard after I was at the dentist.

So after I picked out my umbrella I walked over to cash to pay for it.

There was an older woman ahead of me and the cashier said to her “I gave you a present.”

The woman smiled, paid for her purchase, ¬†said “thank you.” and walked away.

As the cashier rang in my umbrella she said to me “I gave you a present.”

I thought to myself “sweet” and not thinking to ask (as my mouth was frozen and I didn’t feel much like talking) …. just finished paying and left.

As I put my receipt into my purse I checked the receipt and saw in capital letters ” SENIORS DISCOUNT. ”

My mouth dropped even lower, and I thought to myself “she thought I was a senior” and then followed by “hey I got $3.00 off my umbrella” ….. SWEET.

I laughed to myself all the way to the bus stop.

I guess in some places I would be considered a senior and there are times sometimes in the early morning and late at night that I feel a bit “senior.”

Then I was thinking that perhaps because with the freezing in from the dentist my mouth was all droopy and there is nothing like that to age a gal.

Oh well …… makes for a cute story …..

I hope that you all are having a fantastic Friday.

Time to go and have a walk with Mr. Alvin before it gets too hot.

I work tonight so it would be very late when we walk tonight.

Happy Friday.

Always Smiling……

Special Hello to: my fellow bloggers ….. keep writing ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

I am still stuffed from the pancakes and am very grateful for the treat.
