Living … One day at a time

Hello,

Good Morning!

How are you?

I am doing quite well.

What is the weather like at your house?

Appears that it rained overnight here as the deck is wet.

I will find out just how wet when I go to pick up the poop in a few minutes. ARGH.

Too much information.

Sorry.

What did you do last night?

Alvin and I went for a walk with one of our friends.

Remarking on the leaves changing along the way.

We had a great chat, catching up on all of our news and enjoying nature.

After our walk we were back home where I made myself supper.

Followed by a few chores and watching a couple of recorded shows.

I saw the season premiere of “New Amsterdam.”

It certainly took me for a few loops and jolts.

But it was great.

Anything new and exciting in your life?

We are hopefully “voting yes” to our contract today.

I am always happy with the same old, same old.

New and exciting.

Change although it is necessary as we age we are happy with just the same.

Not to say that we don’t want or need some excitement and some new stuff.

But for the most part I am like Mr. Alvin …. happy with the routine.

Well time to head downstairs and gather things up for work.

Pick up the poop, too.

I know “way too much information.”

I hope that this finds you in good health and that all news is good.

Keep in touch.

Have an awesome Wednesday.

Thank you for the chat.

 

 

Showing kindness and respect in every action in every day is living a great life.

 

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 17th day of October, 2016.

Well no moisture overnight.

The sidewalks are dry.

Do I risk it and wear shoes?

Who knows.

That is Edmonton, one never knows what to wear.

I know that there are many other places that are the same.

You can go to work with snow in the morning and freezing temperatures and by early afternoon it is sunny and plus 15 degrees celsius.

That would be Calgary.

Weather is an interesting item for sure.

I always check the weather channel for hints about the upcoming day(s).

One that that I will  mention about the weather channel is the new format they are using – is not user friendly.

Not liking it.

I suppose I should let them know.

Not that it would be changed for me but perhaps there are others that are not fond of it either.

They are trying to put way too much information on the television screen and it becomes “white noise” so to speak.

Weather.

I did see on the long range forecast that it is supposed to be plus 10 on Friday.

That would be crazy.

Perhaps the remaining snow would melt and we could have fall back minus the coloured leaves.

Oh well.

A girl can dream.

It did not feel as though we had fall long enough.

One day the leaves were green, the next they were yellow and orange and the next they were gone from the weight of the snow.

I hope that you had a relaxing enjoyable weekend.

Mine was good.

Able to relax and enjoy some walks without trudging through snowbanks.

Always a good thing.

Well almost time to start getting all of the items on for my walk to the bus and then from the bus to the office.

The lighter winter coat, scarf, mitts and perhaps the boots.

I have not made up my mind as yet.

I will wait until the last minute and see what my gut tells me to do.

Have an awesome Monday.

Special Hello to:  all those folks who take their precious time to read this girl’s blog.  Thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Thursday, September 13th, 2012.

Well here we are ….. the middle of another month.

The mornings are a bit cooler here in Edmonton …

The days noticeably shorter…

The moon is noticeable for I think a longer period after sunrise…

The trees are starting to change colour…

The animals are starting to prepare…

INCLUDING US????

So have you packed away your summer clothing, shoes and jackets?

Have you pulled out your flowers that are no longer bright and vibrant?

Are you rearranging your garage to put all your summer stuff away?

Have you cleaned your windows, checked the seals around the windows, cleaned your bathroom fans, cleaned your furnace, or started?

I am still wearing my summer clothing, most of my flowers are still doing okay despite the dip in temperatures the night before last, my stuff is still on the deck, I have begun the getting your home ready for winter part.

I have a furnace cleaning booked for the end of September.

When you own a home there is always lots to do ….

Last night I enjoyed a lovely walk with Alvin…

It was a perfect evening … no breeze …. temperature just right for walking.

Rescued a baby jack rabbit (only a couple or three weeks old) from my basement window well!

That is another story.

Bought the winning lotto ticket (have to check and see how much we won).

Watched “THE VOICE” …. love that show.  The judges are a perfect mix of entertainers and personalities …. they work well together.

I LOVE THAT SHOW.  It is my favourite.

Well on that note I shall say “farewell” until “morrow” ….. which is my day off ….. but I will write something just for you…

Have a blessed, grand, wonderful, awesome, spectacular, great, fantastic, WOW kind of a day ….

Special Hello to: all those volunteers who help people and animals …. you TOTALLY ROCK and are amazing.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin…
