It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Saturday Morning,

Wow, this year so far has been filled with incredible highs and incredible lows.

This past week I would say has had some incredible lows.

Three nights this week of virtually no sleep countered with last night with first time up at 3:30 a.m. has made for a very long week.

One great thing to happen is my daughter is coming to visit today and I shall whip up some pancakes.

I don’t have my usual ingredients but that has never stopped me from making something.

I have found in life you have to be able to use what you have and go from there.

 

Just like this fence adventure and I shall call it that ….. I finally got things sorted out and just have to chat with my neighbours about the final tally.

I researched and spoke to people and then negotiated.

Negotiation is not something that I find easy to do ….. selling is more my thing.

That being said I guess negotiating is part of selling.

Now working for someone else and selling is one thing …. like retail.

I love that …. and I am good, no very good at selling things.

Anyway, I am more than happy with the final result in this case.

 

Perhaps after having a shower will perk me up and that is next on my list to do.

Last night I did some laundry so that reduced the number of loads for today.

I will say that with not having to go to the office, my laundry is considerably less.

Now basically one outfit for the day not two or even three.

I think that perhaps Alvin may need to go outside before I slip into the shower.

Will check with him first for sure.

 

The rain has stopped and it is very windy.

Clouds still fill most of the sky although it does appear to be brighter in the distances.

Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and 20 degrees celsius.

Now that would be nice.

Something to note that yesterday afternoon it was snowing, yup it was.

Mostly it was wet snow and melted as it touched the ground.

The point is on May 22, 2020 it was snowing.

 

At this moment both of us long to go walking but until he is back to normal, not taking any chances.

Not a pretty sight to have diarrhea on a walk, the clean up is a nightmare.

 

Well my daughter will be here in approximately two hours and I have things to do in preparation of her arrival.

I hope that you are having an incredibly “high” kind of day filled with all good things.

 

This life of ours now is unique for our time for most of us.

I hope that we are able to figure out a “new norm” and that it is one that is good for everyone including animals and all creatures including the environment.

We need to be more kind and respectful in all areas.

Take our new norm, go forth and spread that kindness and respect into your daily life.

This is a good thing for sure.

 

Well I better get this boat on the water …..

Wishing you a wonderful day filled with all sorts of goodness.

You deserve this most definitely as do we all.

Take care and be of good health.

 

With kindness and respect,

I/We shall remain,

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Sometimes we just need some photos of cuteness and the beauty of nature.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 15th day of May, 2016.

Another sunny morning although it appears to be a bit smoky out there.

Temperature starting to warm up.

 

Today is the seriously putting together things for next weekend’s garage sale.

Cleaned out my closet yesterday and filled a huge rubbermaid container of clothes.

Still have to go through the basement and gather things.

It feels so good to go through and clean out things.

There are always a couple of items that can be tossed but otherwise all things have a long life yet.

 

My daughter and family are coming for a visit today.

We have not seen Elton since his surgery and I am excited to see the little guy.

 

So just a day of posting a garage sale on KIJIJI and carrying things out to the garage.

All things garage sale this day.

Maybe a short trip to the grocery store to break things up and of course our very special visit.

My daughter is bringing things to add to the sale.

Also some of my friends are bringing things over so will be a multi-family event.

Next Friday and Saturday.

 

Well better get this show on the road as time is evaporating as I key these words.

 

Have an awesome Sunday.

Remember always good to clean out closets and such.

You will lighter and better.

Give some away and sell some maybe at a garage sale.

I do both.

 

Special Hello to:  all those holding garage sales, have fun and sell lots.

Always, Carol and Alvin
