Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 25th day of March, 2017.

It is gloomy out this morning and was difficult to get out of bed this morning.

Likely due in part to me falling asleep on the sofa early in the evening and then between Alvin and I waking up at odd hours throughout the night.

Oh well, such as life.

We are good …..

I was hoping that the sun would be shining.

Sunshine always energizes me.

Overcast makes me sleepy.

So it is the weekend.

Time to get some things done around the house like laundry again.

Seems like I just did laundry and here we are again.

 

It is also that time of year to start the neighbourhood garbage pickup.

Every night as of late on my walk home from the bus (because it is in the daylight) I see so much trash on the ground.

Honestly it does make me mad and disappointed.

Either today or tomorrow I will go and do some outdoor cleaning.

But it does bring me joy to have a clean neighbourhood.

I do wish that people would take notice and perhaps pick things up instead of dropping them on the ground.

Part of the garbage problem is the way people pack their recycling.

A good portion of the trash is paper and boxes.

For some reason people tend to think tossing paper and small boxes on top of each other or in a open container is a good thing.

NOT so much.

WIND.

We have wind here.

 

Okay I am done my rant.

Sorry for this.

Time to get this show on the road.

SHOWER.

I need a shower.

Warm me up and wake me up.

 

Happy Saturday.

Have fun today.

Alvin and I will get out for a walk at some point and that is always fun.

 

Special Hello to:  all my fellow bloggers.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 14th day of May, 2015.

Well the sun is coming up ….. still a bit on the cool side in the mornings.

I still am wearing a jacket for my walk to the bus stop.

Maybe in a week or so ….. a sweater will do.

This morning I went to retrieve a voicemail message on my home telephone.

The old fashion touch tone portable phone …. I do not have a cell phone yet.

There is static on the other end.

Guess time for new phones.

They sure do not make things like they used to ….. everything is disposable.

Why oh why.

I do know the answer, but really I would love for manufacturers to have love for their products and make with integrity and quality.

It is so disappointing when items do not last.

I remember a deep freezer that my grandparents had on the farm.

It was there when I was a child, and it was moved from the farm to town.

I figured why it was about 30 or so years old.

Stoves and fridges used to last for 25 years or so.

One would tire of them long before they broke down and then most times they could be repaired.

Can you imagine house hold appliances and gadgets lasting that long?

Or at least make things to be repaired and not throw away.

Okay, I have had my little “rant” for the day.

Just disappointed …. I am not mad or sad …. just disappointed.

Well almost time to get back downstairs, grab my lunch and jacket (will need shoes, too) and snuggle with Mr. Alvin for a few minutes before heading off to work.

YAY, tomorrow is my day off and I am so excited.

Have a great great day everyone.

Special Hello to: all those people who take the time to read my blog, I so appreciate it.

Always, Carol and Alvin
