Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 11th day of December, 2017.

Appears to be another nice day on the way.

My hand is still sore depending on what I am trying to do.

Should be interesting at work as I have some things to do that require writing and that is something that is not easy to do.

I have been writing with my right hand which is not my dominant one.

Will have to power through and write with my left as most of the writing is numbers.

I am grateful to my daughter who came over yesterday and helped me finish the Christmas baking.

Showers and getting dressed take time.

Found that putting on “stretch” – legging type of pants, I cannot do without pain.

No jewellery, hardly any make-up.

Fun and games.

I feel naked.

Watch on opposite hand.

ARGH.

But at the end of it all I am most grateful that I can key without too much discomfort which helps and that I am feeling pretty good.

Although I have not really stopped since it happened.

Good or bad, I do not know.

Alvin has been at my side as I figure he knows something is up.

Oh, my darling boy.

Well almost time to go as it will take me a few minutes to don the coat, boots and slide into my back pack……

No complaints as I know it could have been much much worse.

I am grateful for that and for the girls and work and for my daughter for the help.

So happy Monday everyone.

Special Hello: to my sister and fellow blogger for their concern and comments.  I have learned that I can only trust me to make sure that I look after me ….. if someone is coming on the bus, I will

just get out of the way until I have 100% exit.  Better to be safe than sorry.

Thank you everyone.

P.S. update on Telus and the data exceeded …. guy called me at 6:50 instead of 6:00 as promised…..then spent another 50 minutes on the phone with him ….. on the computer ….. only to tell me that I would need a technician to come out……argh.  Kept saying there is another device on my … whatever it is called.  I told him what I had…. I also said I am 60, why would I lie??  Anyway.

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 6th day of April, 2016.

The snow has melted and we are back to dry land.

The wind is howling this morning so it makes me think of times gone by.

Here is a flashback some 42 years …..

*******************************************

To Windthorst I came late in the fall.

With great expectations – or so I recall.

I looked forward to seeing new faces in class.

And taking the subjects I knew I should pass.

 

My impressions are fixed now, it currently seems

That totally false was each of these dreams.

With all the boys, I’d thought it’d be heaven,

But it hasn’t worked out: so back to Glenavon.

 

The girls are prettier than I’d thought they would be;

Though none but a fool could prefer them to me!

(My vanity comes from the pressures of rhyme –

You know that I’m modest all of the time)!

 

My rhyme is near finished, my brainpower low,

My thoughts have diminished, and so I shall go.

Life, bring excitement! Life, bring romance!

Life, bring me something! Windthorst last chance!

 

Written as I entered Grade 12 in Windthorst, Saskatchewan.

Grandma sold the farm in the summer/fall of 1974 and we moved to the

Village of Windthorst.

******************************************************

Sure seems funny reading and keying words that I wrote over 40 years ago.

I hope that this brings a smile to your face.

Time to go to work.

Have a great Wednesday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister who is basking in the sun on a beach somewhere in Hawaii …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of April, 2015.

The sun is up and shining.

The wind is still blowing.

It is quiet in the house except for the tapping as I hit each key to form these words.

I could even hear Alvin’s little feet as they softly walked across the hallway rug.

We both feel it …. the stillness…..

Do you or have you ever had time completely and utterly by yourself?

In a room or in a house?

No fans, no furnace blowing warm air into each room, no dogs barking or babies crying?

No laughter, no voices.

Just the sound of your heart beating.

I think it is a good thing once in awhile.

Time to reflect and think.

To get yourself in order.

I have done a lot of thinking the past couple of days ……

It is good for the body and mind.

Good for your inner being.

I feel very relaxed and calm.

Alvin, I am not completely sure how he is feeling.

Lonely ….. we both are for sure.

But tomorrow will bring routine.

Back to work.

Back to the office.

Back to the drama …..

The drama that is life.

Well I hope that you are having a great Sunday.

Finding time to reflect on the past days and your life.

Waking those dreams within you.

As have I …….

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to: empty nesters …… it will be okay.

Always, Carol and Alvin
