Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 2nd day of February, 2019.

Well this is going to be the second day of our “winter storm.”

Snow on the way or perhaps it hasn’t stopped.

All day yesterday whenever I looked out the window it was snowing.

Not the fluffy stuff, nope.

It looked like rain but was snow.

I had shovelled in the morning before I left home for work and of course, shovelled again upon arriving home from work.

Nothing like starting and ending the day with SHOVELLING.

Actually I don’t mind and it is great exercise.

Thankfully it was not heavy heavy snow.

Temperatures are taking a dip starting yesterday and working downwards over the next several days.

With any luck it will remain calm.

We are up well we were up earlier at 3:22 a.m. – yup someone other than me had to go “to the bathroom.”

I know what that is like so I cannot tell him to stay in bed.

When you have to pee you have to pee, right.

Most women get this ….

When you are expecting it is a huge thing and as we get older same deal.

Anyway …. I obliged him.

We hit the sofa for some solid sleep and I dreamt like it was 1922.

Stories kept changing and it felt like I had read several short stories with me being in every one.

So just before 7:00 a.m. …. yes, can you believe it …… WE ARE UP.

I have changing bedding on our bed, sprayed cleaner in the toilet bowls upstairs and put the ointment in Alvin’s eye.

Writing this post and then will get this day really going.

Breakfast first for us both as Alvin is quite the gentleman and usually waits for me.

Then cleaning, vacuuming and some book work.

The new Steeped Tea Catalog is out so I have to tell all my customers.

There are plenty of new items including the flowering teas.

Excited for that.

Teddy went home just after 5:30 p.m. last night.

His Aunt picked him up.

When he saw her car pull up …. he jumped off my lap and to Alvin’s chair to look out the window.

Barking all the way.

So happy to see her.

So quiet after he left.

We had a great time with Teddy as per usual.

He sure loves to play and has even put the “play bug” into Alvin.

 

I have a birthday party to attend just before 3 p.m. today.

One of my young friend’s who lives just a few doors away celebrated her 41st birthday yesterday.

Her daughter is hosting a “surprise birthday party” today.

Not so much a surprise but that is okay.

My friend is working with her to make it seem like a surprise.

What a mother will not do for her child and what a child will do not do for her mom.

We even have a secret door knock.

When “M” called me yesterday to let me know that her Mom would be back home by 3:15 p.m. and to be at their house before that time so that we could get ready for her arrival;

she also told me that there was a secret door knock.

I giggled and told her “please keep it simple or I may forget.”

So what did she say “knock three times and then ring the door bell.”

I replied “well that is easy as I remember an old song named “Knock Three Times.” and then ringing the doorbell makes sense.

Birthday party here I come.

Oh, I need coffee, too.

Cleaning and cleaning.

I need to do that ….

Been to busy the past few weekends to do a deep clean so have to get that done.

Happy Saturday.

 

Special Hello: to all those folks who dream big and live even bigger.

Always, Carol & Alvin
