It is a NEW YEAR.

Well can you believe it …. Wednesday June 17th, 2020.

I seem to remember last week it was June 1st.

Half way through 2020.

WOW, that is just crazy.

Totally a good reason to ensure that you live your best life every single day.

Every day is counted in the same manner.

24 hours.

60 minutes in an hour.

60 seconds in a minute.

So why does it sometimes feel as though a week or a month or six months can pass in the blink of an eye.

For me, it is because I have so many things that I would like to do and then the time has passed.

But we cannot give up.

Keep dreaming and making those lists.

 

I know that with working from home …. I am challenged with staying away from the job during off work times.

As I am keenly aware of how much work keeps coming in …. it is difficult to leave it alone.

I am stressed and anxious about the never ending “mail”  that keeps arriving in my inboxes.

Daily or at least weekly we receive additional direction and added responsibilities.

I do know that I am not alone.

 

There are so many folks out there working from home.

Depending on what your job is …. during this Pandemic …. you may be swamped.

The neverending INBOX, that dreaded email.

Our life line to the outside world.

 

We also realize that we are blessed and fortunate to have employment during this pandemic.

I am great appreciative to be employed.

Knowing that I can continue to be financially responsible for me and Alvin means the world to me.

However, that does not stop those moments of sheer anxiety of how am I ever going to get this all done.

Then I begin to second guess my skills, intelligence and even my memory.

 

Time affects us all.

Whether too much or not enough.

This pandemic affects us all whether directly or indirectly.

We, you and me are not alone.

 

Just because you are working and do not have the virus.

Does not mean to say that you cannot be anxious and scared and have feelings of loneliness and dread.

So we have to be aware.

Aware of everyone’s feelings and know that is is okay.

Okay to be nervous, anxious and fearful.

 

We will get through this pandemic.

When, I have no idea.

But we will.

The human race will endure.

Things will be different as they are already.

Will we ever go back to the way things were?

No, I do not believe so.

Why would we want to.

We have learned so much in these past few months.

Time to build upon that knowledge moving forward.

 

Well my work desk is calling my name.

It is inches away.

See what I mean.

My coffee is ready for me in a to go mug on my workstation.

 

I hope that you have an awesome day.

It is cloudy and raining here in Edmonton in my neighbourhood.

Wishing you a day and a life filled with kindness and respect.

 

Living this life, my life, every DAY with kindness and respect for all life.

I/We, shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 20th day of April, 2015.

Well I am disappointed and confused this morning.
Up extra early so that I will be ready to start our new routine.
I go into Word Press to find that the format has changed.
No time to fiddle with things to figure it out.
Oh well …..

Guess this will be short as I have to leave for the bus shortly.

I hope that you have an awesome day.
Will get this figured out …..
I wished that I had better computer “figuring out” skills.

Happy Monday everyone.

Special Hello to: Family and Friends on this Monday.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 3rd day of June, 2014.

As I sit at the computer and type these words I am feeling pure joy.

I am so blessed to live in this beautiful house.

To have in my possession items that bring back memories of days gone by when evoked by thoughts and feelings or even a glance.

I am surrounded by the best people of the planet …. my family and friends.

I live with me Alvin, my buddy ….

It is just a few weeks away until it is officially summer but I think it is close enough to celebrate.

The temperatures are warmer, the sun rises earlier and stays up later.

We had sun showers yesterday on the way home from work.

My son-in-law opened the cover on the sun roof in the car so we could see the rain as it hit the glass ….. very pretty.

I just have so much to be thankful for and to feel really blessed with in this sometimes very crazy life of mine.

I work at two very different places that cause me to use different skills …. if you will.

So all in all ….. we are great in this household.

I hope that you take a few moments this Tuesday to feel just how blessed you are …. always concentrate on the good stuff.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: my sister ……. yes we are SKYPING this weekend for sure……

Always, Carol and Alvin
