It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Merry Christmas …..

Well we are having a snow shower at the moment.

Now isn’t that a way to begin a Friday.

Earlier and actually almost all night it was raining and I know this because I was up and out in it with Alvin.

Last night during his last “outing” into the backyard before bed ….. there was bottom end action.

I missed that he had “bottom end action” during one of the earlier escapes to the backyard.

Now how I missed it …. not sure.

But likely because I was holding a huge umbrella and because he happened to be in the grass that has now grown seemingly overnight.

Anyway, things are starting to return to normal.

Still a ways to go but leaning toward the right direction.

Thankfully as I cannot do a third night in a row ….. right now I am likely running on less than full engine capacity.

Not likely, I am …..

Hopefully the coffee can help out this morning.

Perhaps because Alvin was up and down – he will nap most of the day so that I can concentrate on work.

We shall see.

 

The other major “thing” in my life in the moment is the “fence between me and neighbours in other half of the duplex.”

One of the fence posts and 20 feet of the fence has rotted due to the stone work in their yard and because my deck is up against the fence.

Moisture gets in and cannot get out.

So we are having that replaced.

Long story short as I need to grab my coffee and start work shortly (needed to have a few minutes of sleep as virtually I had two last night).

The guy that is doing the work ….. had not factored in that the fence boards were rotten …. he only figured that likely the one post.

Anyway ….. second quote came in and I had a problem with not having a breakdown of pricing and the amount charged for labour.

So I asked some questions ….

Needless to say things did not go over well.

So I have more questions this morning to ask before asking for a requote.

Life in the fast lane.

Note to you and to me …. insist upon something in writing and ensure that you have that paper before starting or accepting any job.

Don’t let it come back and bite you in the butt.

 

Okay, I have done venting.

This is going to be an interesting day for sure.

 

SNOW, RAIN ….. contractor …. ARGH.

 

I hope that this finds you well.

Have a great day.

 

Life has to be lived with kindness and respect.

I/We, remain

As Always, Carol & Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and welcome to a sunrise with partial overcast skies.

Yesterday was an odd day.

Cooler and ending in the late afternoon with a crazy amount of miniature snowballs and then rain.

It reminded me of hail but so small, I guess ice pellets.

Covering the deck and the grass.

Now there is only a hint that we had “snow” yesterday.

Mother’s Day 2020.

Despite Mother Nature’s attempt at throwing us a curveball; our day was wonderful.

My daughter came for a visit and brought the grandpups Miss Aspen and Baby Milo.

I guess Milo is no longer a baby but he is the baby in our family.

We had brunch with muffins, fruit, energy bites and cheese and of course, coffee.

We exchanged gifts from one Mother to another.

I will add you do not have to have human babies to be a mother.

Nor do you have to have puppies, kitties or any kind of animal or creature to be a mother.

We are all mothers in the global community.

The old saying “It takes a village.”

Well it does.

Everyone plays a role in raising the babies on this earth.

My daughter, son-in-law and grandpups gave me a watercolour paint set with a painting journal and a book on how to Paint with Watercolours in 30 Days.

I am set.

So excited.

I started to read the book and I have already learned so many things in just the first few pages.

This next weekend I will start at the beginning and I will learn how to paint.

I think that it is better to learn some basic techniques than by just going rogue and doing my thing.

“Doing my thing” can always come later.

We had a great time.

My daughter made a run to COSTCO and the grandpups stayed with Grandma and Alvin.

It was great to have them in the house.

Aspen loves having her belly rubbed and Milo loves to stand/lay on my lap.

Perfect Mother’s Day.

 

So here we go another work week.

Lots to do but that is good.

Nothing worse than boredom from lack of something to do.

Although I will say I do not think that I have ever had a job or day that was filled with boredom.

Likely that it is pretty good for someone of my age.

I still cannot believe that I will turn “63” this summer.

 

I am going to make an appointment at the VET for Alvin this week.

Certainly hope that they remain open for business.

He is long overdue and I have watched him with an eagle eye to ensure that his dew claw is not growing into his paw.

It has got so long.

I believe he is ready for his regular maintenance.

I will call and find out.

 

Well it is time to go and grab my coffee.

Get this Monday started.

I look forward to a walk at noon as we missed walking yesterday.

 

I hope that you all have a fantastic Monday.

Living with kindness and respect for ALL.

 

I/We remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Welcome to Friday morning and it is raining and windy here in Edmonton.

Started to rain in the early evening.

Not constant.

 

How are you this morning?

I am well.

Couple of things.

We were up I would say about 5:00 a.m.

Alvin had his breakfast and did his business in the backyard of course.

Then we hit the sofa for some extra zzz’s.

I must have fell into a fairly deep sleep quickly as I had the most unusual dream.

When we woke up and I started to write in my “Gratitude Journal,” I found myself writing quickly about this dream.

Some of the details were fresh in my memory.

Which is unusual for me.

I madly wrote them down and filled the page before I knew it.

I made connections with some things that happened over the course of the day.

The premise of the dream was: I was in my Grandmother’s house in the small town where she lived decades ago (I lived there at one point with her).

There was this dog, not Alvin.

I had given him a haircut which was a perfect replica of a dog, a clone.

Not even the same dog.

After it dropped to the counter or whatever the surface was, it basically came alive.

From just what would have been a haircut.

The original dog was not hurt or anything but now there were two dogs.

I remember being frightened of this second dog but it was so cute.

There were a great many things that happened in this dream.

There was another woman with me with the dogs.

Almost feels like other people but I am not sure.

At one point I am sitting in the passenger side of a white SUV.

Waiting for someone.

It was winter out as I remember seeing snow.

We were pulled over near a sidewalk.

There were two Real Estate Agents with signs that opened the back door of the SUV and were in and out with their signs as they tried to put them up.

When I finally had enough and climbed into the driver’s seat, they yelled “don’t run him over” and there was this third Real Estate Agent behind the car.

It was odd and creepy and weird.

I looked for traffic as a car slowed and waited for me to pull out.

The street that I turned onto was busy but I finally got turned.

When I turned the street some cigarettes started to fall out of a little nook in the steering column near the wheel.

OMG, strange.

I remember hearing a conversation between the woman and the house and another …. the woman was explained some things …. I don’t remember the details now.

But she called me the B word.

Yikes.

Well that is it.

That was an odd one.

So I have been watching a lot of “Love It or List It,” lately.

I saw a white SUV drive by yesterday.

The second dog was PLUTO the newest Canadian sensation.

I recognized the town as where I lived for a short time with my Grandma.

She lived there for more than 25 years.

 

Anyway, I was going to post some photos and I see by the clock on the “wall” that it is almost time for me to grab my coffee and start the work computer.

I might try and post a few from the week that was …..

 

I was trying to snap some artistic photos of my flowers and a glass flower from different angles.

Well some turned out better than others.

Then there was Alvin and Humphrey on the deck.

You can see Humphrey sitting on the deck post with the beautiful sunrise behind him.

My first ever BUBBLE TEA sold my Steeped Tea of course.

Well that was the week that was …..

 

I hope that you had a great one.

Remember to live in kindness and respect.

We got this.

 

I/We Remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Happy Monday Morning Everyone.

No colourful sunrise as yet but am hopeful that we shall see some sunshine today.

More snow yesterday and overnight.

 

Yesterday I snapped a couple of closeups of Mr. Alvin.

Is he not the cutest boy?

He has such a cute innocent face.

His eyes …. I guess only one is visible…

When I am eating something and he comes up close with his face and turns on the cuteness …. those brown eyes can melt you into a puddle.

 

A Story of Six Bunnies

Over the past few days I have become enthralled with the bunnies that gather in the nighttime on our front lawn.

Okay, on the front snow covered lawn area.

Last night as I started to turn off the lights in the house before we went upstairs to bed, I noticed five rabbits out front of our house.

One came bounding over to join them.

We watched the bunnies as they munched away on the food that my neighbour so graciously has left for them.

It has been a hard winter for these little ones with all this snow.

At one point in the second photo, I saw two of the rabbits leaving the group to the other side of the street.

They stopped along the side where there was an abundance of soft fresh snow (not packed down by traffic).

One of the bunnies laid down and rolled around in the snow.

Well yes he/she certainly did roll.

Then jumped up while the other bunny watched.

I giggled as I watched the playfulness of the bunny.

The little one did this a few times before continuing to the other side of the road.

I figured perhaps I could grab some better photos so we raced upstairs and I took the photo on the left.

The one on the right captures the two bunnies, the one on the left was the one playing in the snow.

 

This morning from our bedroom window.

Appears to have been a party happening in our front yard (my neighbour and ours together).

The tracks filled the front yard or at least most of it.

There are tracks from every direction.

There was lots of good food and good company.

I should have put out some liquid refreshment.

 

Well that is what was happening in our neck of the woods as Al Roker would say.

I am an Al Roker fan (Today Show).

 

Well the time is passing and is almost time to start working.

 

In addition to watching the bunnies yesterday I made another banana cranberry orange with coffee spice load and a massive pot of the best chili ever.

I am so proud of both.

Good eatings ahead.

 

Time for caffeine …..

Have an awesome day.

 

It is the small things in life that mean the most.

A snuggle with Alvin.

Video chat with my daughter.

Text from my sister.

Fresh made banana loaf.

Smell of chili bubbling away on the stove.

A bunny rolling in the fresh snow.

Fresh perked cup of coffee.

 

Time to go.

 

As Always, I/We

Carol & Alvin

 

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Happy Friday Everyone!

The sun is rising and is more subtle color wise and vibrancy wise.

But beautiful all the same.

Happy today is Friday.

Today is also the day that I work the late shift.

Once every couple of weeks or so the staff or some of the staff are assigned to work from 11:00 a.m. till 7:00 p.m.

It is from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. (our office closes at 4:00 p.m. and that is when we have the phones answered by a security company).

So today some of us staff are manny the calls from the public from 4-7 p.m.

Being on the phones is my least favourite part of my job.

Now that we are using our cell phones it is a bit more challenging as at the office I had a headset which made speaking and using the computer easier.

Oh well, I am grateful to have a job and being paid.

I am grateful to have NO commute and to be at home with Alvin.

This is time with him that I would not have had, had I been working at the office.

So grateful for our time together.

I am not certain what the temperature is at the moment.

Perhaps we will have time before I start work at 11:00 a.m. to go for a walk.

Time will tell.

We have five minutes less than three hours.

My daughter brought a chair for me yesterday.

It is way more comfortable than my current one.

That should make my days of sitting easier.

When we went for a walk after work my lower back was giving me a lot of pain so I think that I had better start doing some stretches.

It was a bit brisk but a very enjoyable walk.

Odd how the pain went away when I got home and was not walking.

Definitely not getting as much exercise as in a regular day.

Even at the office I would get up multiple times during the day to pick up letters from the printer.

So have to be careful.

I am going to start including stretches and other exercises into my days.

Likely a good idea for all of us who are sitting most of our days.

I then sit in the evening as well.

So happy to have had some time with my daughter.

Mr. Alvin is resting on his bed beside me in the office.

I will say that it is not nearly as bright out this morning and I think that they did forecast snow for today.

I will check the temperature and I think we may sneak out for a walk in a little bit.

A walk before I sit all day would be a great idea.

 

I know that so many of us are staying home and practicing the social distancing but how many folks are not.

Please unless you absolutely have to go out …. stay home.

I think of all my friends who are in Healthcare, work in grocery stores, fire fighters, police, custodians, and all those jobs that provide essentials to our well being.

So grateful for them all.

Please be safe.

The sooner everyone listens and pays attention to what our health care and government leaders are instructing us to do, the sooner the VIRUS will be gone.

Take care.

 

Well time to get dressed and have some breakfast.

Check the weather.

Clean up the poop.

Yes, someone has to watch after Mr. Alvin.

I have to do some shovelling but will see how much time I have …..

 

Be safe.

Live your lives in kindness and with respect.

We got this.

You got this.

 

I/We remain,

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 1st day of a new month, April.

Usually people would be playing pranks on one another this morning but alas I don’t think it is likely appropriate this April 1st.

The sky is almost white this morning with a tinge of the palest of blues.

I am hopeful that the sunrise will be visible shortly.

Yesterday afternoon the SUN was so bright against the deep plush blanket of snow it was almost blinding from inside the house.

At one point I was thinking I should put on my sunglass clips but then I was not in the living for long and in my office it was not too bad.

Working from home as been interesting.

Today is our 10th day, I believe.

I do love being here with Alvin, going for walks at lunchtime when we can and the commute.

Nothing beats the commute.

Nothing.

Other than retirement and then there would be no commute, period.  OVER and OUT.

But that is not where I am at this time so a short commute is wonderful.

It is nice dressing how you feel.

Somedays I feel like dressing as though I am going to the office and others it feels more casual.

I have not as yet wore my pajamas or gone without wearing a bra.

But we are just beginning in this new norm.

I have a feeling that it will be extended for us past April 30, 2020.

I have not been watching the news to see how many cases or if the virus has grown substantially in Canada.

I feel that I am doing my part.

Staying home and reducing the chance of catching the virus.

My friends drop things off at the door and when we visit it is in short spurts at the door and I am six feet away.

No hugs even though we really want to.

I wash my hands.

Importantly I get lots of rest, try to remain calm, get some exercise and eat right and keep hydrated.

Speaking of hydrating (kidding), I smell the coffee perking away.

Let me tell you there is nothing short of wild roses lining the path to the park or lilacs blooming or the scent of a little baby that matches the smell of coffee brewing.

I guess the secret is out.

BEST SMELLS EVER:

Wild roses

Lilacs

Scent of a baby

COFFEE

Perhaps after a rain ……

What are you favourite scents?

Maybe you could send me your list.

I am excited to see what everyone likes or loves.

 

Mr. Alvin ….

Even though he has my schedule for starting and ending work and breaks down to the minute, I think he is out of sorts.

I think that he has some pain in his paws due to arthritis.

It was/is a matter of time.

I will continue with his daily regimen of glucosamine.

I do know that when the weather changes, I can see a difference.

This is not news to his Doctor.

Don’t worry I keep her aprized.

 

How about some miscellaneous photos.

I love photos.

Let me see what do I have handy.

 

Oh my darling grand pup MILO closest to the camera and little KOBI in the background.

MILO and Miss ASPEN.

Love my grand pups.

I love the way the tree looks after a snowfall.

Branches gently cradling the snow.

Last year’s birthday …. the most delicious cupcakes.

With Key Lime Icing

Geese near the park by my house, last year or year before.

Time passes so quickly …..

Flowers from my friend’s garden.

I cannot wait to see her garden this summer.

Our friend next door, HUMPHREY.

Thankfully he does not have to wear the CONE often anymore.

But sometimes.

FRIENDS

I wished that I had one of Alvin and Teddy looking out of the bedroom window.

I have some.

ALVIN and TEDDY on the bed.

 

Well almost time to grab my coffee and get the start up to work.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Wednesday, we got this.

Two more days until the weekend.

 

Living in Kindness and with Respect,

I, We remain as,

Always, Carol & Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning from an overcast Edmonton.

There is rain in the forecast and I am hoping that I can get everything done quickly so that I can take Mr. Alvin for a walk.

Blog and then shower and then walk.

 

How are you doing today?

Are you getting enough rest, keeping hydrated and eating well and exercise.

How could I forget the exercise.

 

Today I thought I would take our minds off things by posting some photos.

Yesterday Teddy came to visit Alvin.

I did some baking (yes, I did).

GUESS WHAT?

I baked a banana cranberry orange with coffee spice loaf.

It is the first time in my 62+ years that I have made one that turned out perfectly.

Baked through and through.

I even changed the recipe somewhat.

So good.

The ENERGY BITES ….. made almost 4 dozen of them.

Changing up, using what I had.

Ended up using Chipit Kisses, Cranberries and Sliced Almonds.

WIth the other regular items such as oatmeal, coconut, peanut butter and honey.

They are tasting pretty good.

I managed to get all the laundry done except for one load (that will be for later today).

 

I was trying to capture two friends hanging out each with a chew treat.

Treat kept moving.

Alvin just watching.

 

 

 

This is the recipe for the Energy Bites.

See how much you can mix things up.

Try some of your fav ingredients.

 

My best creation EVER.

Voile, a BANANA CRANBERRY ORANGE COFFEE SPICE LOAF.

First time ever that I have baked one of these and they turned out perfectly.

I have made muffins until the cows came home.

Banana cakes galore but not until yesterday did an attempt at a loaf ever turn out.

I am over the moon.

It tastes so good.

I made sure to try it out when it was still warm.

 

 

I fed the boys and after supper.

Teddy had a boost of energy as he quickly threw most of the toys from the bed.

 

 

Well time to hit the shower.

Freshen up.

Then hopefully head out for a walk.

 

Wishing you a great Sunday.

Perhaps you will go for a walk.

Or maybe read a book.

Watch your favourite movie or a new one.

Watch a series that you have recorded and not found the time to see.

Bake a cake.

Phone a friend.

Colour a picture.

Learn something new.

Check out all the FREE online courses, on the internet.

So much to do….. now you have the time.

 

Take care.

Oh, by the way, I forgot to take photos of my gernamium plant.

It is crazy blooming and growing so big.

This photo was from a few weeks ago.

I will take some photos later and show you the actual size of this plant.

It has taken to the spot that it is home.

The pink flowers are so gorgeous.

So many buds just waiting for the perfect moment to explode in perfect pinkness.

 

Happy Sunday.

With kindness and respect.

We remain,

Always, Carol & Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning All,

Feeling refreshed as just had a nice shower.

Alvin was enjoying a massage a bit earlier.

I am worried that he is starting to feel the effects of arthritis more and more.

I even massaged his little legs and when I stopped he asked for more.

We have this little gesture when he wants/needs something.

I ensure even Al has to have manners.

He reaches out to me or to whomever with one of his front paws.

That is how he asks nicely.

So he kept doing this every time that I stopped massaging.

Unfortunately I cannot do it all day but I am going to make a point of on my breaks massaging his paws/legs.

He is laying on his extra soft bed that I made for him in the office.

I have a blanket of mine that is over 40 years old folded down and then his blue blanket on top.

Making a nice little bed for the boy.

 

In a few minutes it will be time to go and turn on the coffee pot or I may sneak away in a few minutes.

Am feeling like a cup of coffee sooner than later.

It is strange/odd that every day since I have been home, I have not had the same routine.

We do the same things but at somewhat different times.

Perhaps changing things up a bit does not hurt.

Our routine has likely been changed for some time to come.

 

I feel for Alvin though in all of this.

I know that he is enjoying me being at home.

Once I go back to work it will be tough on him.

He is not a young dog anymore.

One day at a time.

Making each day count is the way that we have to look at all of this.

 

Oh, just when we thought SPRING had truly arrived …..

IT snowed and snowed.

We now have a nice thick white blanket covering all of the bare ground and concrete.

There remain huge banks of snow in the front yards that face north and ours is one of them.

Okay, perhaps huge might be a bit of an exaggeration but still we have quite a lot of snow.

If we do not have an imagination or sense of humour, what do we have?

The sky is overcast so I am not seeing the beauty of a sunrise.

Although far on the horizon in between all of the houses that I see out of my office window there is some lightness.

Lightness coming from the horizon.

Sunrise?

I think so.

Hopefully the sun will shine through any clouds that remain in the sky today.

 

I cannot believe it is already DAY FOUR of working from home.

Yesterday so proud of us.

We went for a 30 minute walk at lunchtime and then again after work.

We will have to be careful walking today as the snow is covering the ice and water.

Will have to go from memory of yesterday’s walk.

 

Well, it is almost time to sign off for another day.

I can smell the coffee perking.

Yup, I ran downstairs (okay, walked) and turned on the coffee pot a couple of minutes ago.

 

I wish you a day filled with something new.

A good new.

If you are not working from home and have time to spare.

Go onto the computer and take an online course.

Most city/town libraries have free courses.

Just google free courses.

You never know what you may find.

Learning something new will ease the boredom and give you confidence and help keep your mind off things.

 

Maybe read a new book, a title that you have lying around the house OR I imagine there are free books online to read.

 

Start spring cleaning.

Start room by room.

Go slowly as I think we have time.

Be meticulous about what you are keeping, discarding and recycling and giving to charity.

 

Make a list from every room of all of the items that you have that you are not using.

Once complete then think of who you could give those items to.

 

If you sew, make a blanket for an elderly neighbour.

If you knit, make a blanket for your Mother/Father.

 

There are so many things we can do.

Write a book.

GO FOR A WALK.

I highly recommend the WALK.

There is nothing like fresh air to still the demons and quiet the thoughts.

 

So my coffee is perked and I am ready for it.

 

Wishing you kindness and respect.

Be safe and in good health.

This is one of those rare times in human history that we are all in this together.

Everyone on the planet has been affected by this in some way, shape or form.

I do believe that some countries are handling things better than others but that is unfortunately how things go.

Do the right thing where you are.

 

 

Have an awesome Tuesday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning All.

Well today is my first day of working from home.

We left work yesterday during early afternoon hours with laptops in tow.

I managed with a tinge of assistance from a co-worker on line to get set up.

I moved my office around and set up the laptop (which I have not really worked on before).

Set up the  mouse and I am so glad that I brought home my keyboard, that was a good move.

Thank you to a fellow coworker who had decided to take hers home.

It was so much easier setting things up.

My office looks strange with my APPLE on one end and the laptop on the other.

Shortly I will turn on the laptop and start the day ….. my work hours are 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

Still almost one hour but I want to do my timesheet and have everything open before 8:00 AM.

Poor Mr. Alvin is definitely wondering what is going on.

I think he noticed that I did not put on much makeup other than some eyebrow gel stuff and some lip care.

I think he definitely noticed that I did not put on my dress clothes and I know he noticed that I put on my work socks.

I did that just to throw him off.

He is just so smart.

I am kind of anxious to see what happens when I am on the phone (work) …. we have been hooked up through an APP for our phone.

This should be interesting.

Alvin does not like it when I am on the phone.

Hopefully after the day he settles into me working from home.

Much different than a weekend.

 

Yesterday my daughter picked me up some fruit, vegetables and bread.

She also picked me up a bag of CHICAGO popcorn (one with the cheese and caramel popcorn).

This was a treat for me, how sweet of a girl do I have.

 

The streets are still busy here or at least they were yesterday.

Our street has had cars zipping by all morning.

I wonder if this will change.

 

Well I am anxious to go and get my coffee and get started.

It will be much different working on a laptop small screen compared to our big computer screen at work.

Likely a bit slower going back and forth between windows but at least we are working.

Our clients will be happy about that.

I think some of them figure that with the doors closed to the public that we are not working.

But we are ….. we certainly are ….

We are all in this together.

 

Well time to go and get things going.

Starting to get light out there.

 

Be kind and respectful to all you encounter.

Remember to check on your elderly neighbours and those that are not able to get out and about.

If someone has a pet and they are sick, help out.

Make sure they have food for their pets.

If they have a dog …. take the dog for a walk.

Help where you can.

Be grateful you are well and are able to do so.

 

From an eternally grateful human being,

I remain as Always, Carol with her trusty friend Alvin

 

My geranium is blooming like crazy.

Outside the bunnies are beginning to turn brown.

Spring is official tomorrow.

Forgot to mention that I saw a coyote downtown on my my to work yesterday morning.

My daughter says there are many of them downtown due to the River Valley being close by.

It is a NEW YEAR.

Well the sky is overcast this morning in Edmonton.

Alvin and I have been up for a bit now.

Just pondering the situation of the world.

This CORONAVIRUS has made some people into selfish bastards.

Or perhaps just shown their true selves.

I am going to use that word because that is what it seems.

Why else would anyone need to scour their towns and cities and buy up carts full of bathroom tissue.

It started there.

Now people are buying up meat in large quantities, cleaning supplies and all sorts of food items.

Lineups are out the door at grocery stores.

As the shelves become more bare and the stores are not able to keep up with the demand, as more and more people are infected.

Over time of course, this will affect the truck drivers bringing the food items to us.

What about the farmers, the factory workers and so on.

What will happen?

Greed through the ages and in 2020 it is running as rampant as ever.

If you think that it is funny or that you are out to make a profit ….. guess again.

At some point it will come back and bite you in the ass.

This whole thing has made me just plain mad and oh, so disappointed in the human race.

I know that it is not everyone but come on people.

If we stay calm and follow the “rules” set out by our Health Care Providers we will be okay.

Yes, I know that there will be deaths and that is of course very tragic and I could be one.

NO one knows.

But please this is 2020 and we should have learned a lesson or two by now.

 

I will, me, myself and I remain calm in this STORM.

Panic, I will not.

I promise to do the best to help others who cannot help themselves.

Please remember those who live from cheque to cheque.

There are many of us on the planet.

Ranging from young to old.

Buy what you need as you normally would.

 

As the snow gently hits the ground, I am in the realization that I am okay.

Alvin and I have food in the fridge and the pantry.

We have a warm home to live in.

I am grateful to all those who make this all possible for us every day.

Those folks who work in jobs where there is no “staying home” to weather this storm.

The Nurses, the Doctors, the City Employees and the list is long.

We are grateful to you.

Keep safe and in good health.

 

I hope that you have a good Saturday.

Be in good health.

Be KIND AND RESPECTFUL in all that you do most especially at this time.

 

Always, Carol &  Alvin

 

Remember the government, politicians and other leaders cannot do this by themselves, it is up to each one of us to do our part.

We are all human beings and must work together.
