Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 11th day of December, 2018.

Yesterday with the mild temperatures we had freezing rain.

Making life miserable to pedestrians and drivers alike.

My daughter told me of her experience.

Yesterday was her day off from work and she had an appointment to attend out here in my neighbourhood.

She wasn’t far from home and the roads were icy.

In order not to slip into another car – she took the snowbank and then was stuck.

Luckily some men were out working and came to her rescue pushing her out.

ROADS WERE ICY AND WILL BE THIS MORNING.

Be care out there.

I also had an appointment and caught the bus from downtown to my neighbourhood.

Eye check-up.

The parking lot at work was slippery as was the one that is next to ours.

I was so careful.

Took baby steps all the way to the bus stop.

Luckily I had lots of time and could take my time, walking along.

I made it to my appointment and back home safe and sound.

Poor Mr. Alvin did not have a walk last night.

It was so icy and I just could not take a chance of him or me going down.

By the way, my Optometrist said that I have “very healthy eyes and the change was very small.”

I can wear my current glasses and I have sun glass clips for the main ones.

I do have a second pair – which seem to have disappeared.

Have to find them.

I picked out a new pair because I need to spend the money in my insurance.

Otherwise it is gone.

So two appointments checked off the list.

One more on Friday and that is it for 2018.

YAY.

 

I checked my posts from last year and remembered it was about this time when I took a tumble off the City Bus on my way home from work.

A passenger was coming on and I tried to get around her and flew through the air.

Landing face down.

I scratched my glasses, scrapped my hand and my pride.

The sidewalk was dry – no ice.

On December 11th, 2017 – my post said “appears to be another nice day on the way.”

 

The cookie packages and cards (enclosed a photo of me and Alvin) were a big hit with my coworkers.

Just a few more cookie packages to deliver.

 

Well I should go as I have to put on my ice picks as the sidewalk will definitely be icy.

Drive and walk carefully ……

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who are busy with it all at this time of year …. remember to slow down and breathe.  It will get done.

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 6th day of December, 2014.

Today is the Birthday of my dear cousin “J” ….. we are only one year apart and grew up together.

She is one of the best people that I know.

Kind, smart, compassionate, funny and everything that makes a great human being.

I have always aspired to be like her …….

Happy Birthday my dear cousin.

 

Well today is another busy Saturday.

I had to sleep in because I felt that I needed to.

First thing on the agenda is to start my laundry, have breakfast, perhaps a quick cup of coffee and then go the “Optometrist” to pay for the balance on my eye glass order.

I am so excited to get new glasses after five years with the same frames.

Am taking my camera to take a photo of them as I do not have a cell phone.

Then come home and start BAKING ………. will start with the sugar cookies as they take the longest…..

So excited and in between will write up Christmas cards for the remaining ones to mail and for work and nearby friends.

I hope that you have an awesome Saturday.

Time to get this show on the road.

Special Hello to: my cousin “J” who always makes me laugh and smile.  She has always been a rainbow in my sky.

Always, Carol and Alvin
