Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 10th day of January, 2018.

Brr, it is a COLD one here in Edmonton and most part of the WESTERN CANADIAN PROVINCES.

We seem to be having one week with warm temperatures and then the next bitterly COLD ones.

I am grateful for the break in between this COLD SNAP.

It is funny, no I mean strange that when it is cold all you think about is eating and sleeping.

Bundled up, warm sweater, blankets and next to your significant other or in my case snuggling with Alvin.

He does generate a lot of heat.

On these cold mornings it is hard for him to go outside.

I always wait right by the door to let him back into the house the moment that he is done his business.

There is no taking your time on these mornings and days.

I feel bad for him.

Just keeping warm.

I will be laying layers onto my regular warm clothing today.

Bringing out the big boots.

I just want to sleep …… snuggle up with Alvin under a warm blanket and sleep.

That is the cold weather talking.

Argh, have to leave the house.

Oh well, that is life.

My choice.

To all those folks living in a “deep freeze” please be aware of how you are dressed, your children are dressed, and DO NOT LEAVE your PETS outside.

Make sure as in the heat you keep hydrated.

Well almost time to go and start the layering process.

Need to do this when you are walking and catching a bus.

 

Happy Wednesday.

The next few days are all about the weather and keeping warm.

Take care.

Be safe.

If you are driving – make sure that you have emergency items in your vehicle.

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends all over the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 3rd day of January, 2017.

We are back in a deep freeze here in Edmonton.

Dropped to minus 25 degrees celsius overnight.

Oh joy …… at least no moisture, er snow.

Back to work today.

I had the most wonderful Christmas break with my family and friends.

Alvin and I enjoyed extra long walks on the nice days.

Thank goodness cause this is way too cold for me Alvin to be outside longer than to do his “needs be.”

January is off to a great start.

Had visits with one of my girl friends yesterday and my daughter the previous day.

2017 is a year of patience, more kindness, patience and laughter.

I mentioned patience twice because quite often it is the lack of or not enough of patience that drags us to a bad place.

If we had the patience then the rest might fall easier into place.

For me patience is a big thing …. keeps me in a better place.

So in a few minutes I will be donning the longest winter coat, big scarf, mitts and tall boots.

You need to be covered in good layers on a day like today.

 

I sure hope that the first few days of this New Year find you well and ready to have the best year of your life.

We have to at least start in that great place and hopefully this will be the one that goes as smoothly as life can.

To good health, great joy and an abundant 2017.

 

Special Hello to: ┬ámy Family …… this is our year.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 7th day of October, 2016.

Flowers gone now due to frost.

Cleaned up pots last night and put away.

Cleaned out the rest of the front flower bed and trimmed back the perennials.

Raked the leaves another time.

Trimmed the bushes in the back garden.

Removed the garden hose from the house and drained.

Ready for the next season.

 

Well I have had an interesting morning thus far.

Woke up with Alvin extra early and went back to the sofa for a bit …..

Set the alarm.

My ears plugged and I did not hear the alarm.

Running late.

Well missed the first bus but will catch the next one and still be to work on time.

Good thing I always like to be early.

I have a plan B.

Well time to go.

Brought out the winter clothing as I figured with this cold I should wear a heavier coat and the accessories.

Most of which I have been wearing in various layers.

Have a great Friday.

Hopefully my ears unplug soon.

Feels strange and makes me slightly unbalanced.

Oh the joys of a cold.

 

Special Hello to: all those people with colds …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
