Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 11th day of April, 2018.

Guess what?

You are never going to guess?

We got a present from Mother Nature during the night.

It is sticky.

It is white.

Yes, we received a nice layer of the white stuff.

I guess the memo did not reach Mother Nature.

I wrote her and pleaded with her to “please stop with the white stuff.”

I added that I wanted the part of spring where the ice was not covering the nearby ponds, the spring flowers were blooming and the buds were on the trees.

Oh well, I guess she has a sense of humour and clearly mine is wearing thin.

Enough ice and snow.

Sorry, Mother Nature, I know that you have a tough job, most especially with us “humans.”


Now that I have vented about the snow on to happier things.

Last night when Alvin and I were out for our walk, we came across friends.

Dad and his small daughter.

She had learned on April 1st to ride a bike with no training wheels and they were out practising.

“L” was doing great.

She loves Alvin so we stopped for a few minutes going and coming home.

I guess that is a sign that summer is not too far off.

Officially not too close but not too far.


Alvin is sitting on his blue blanket beside me in the office.

Almost time for me to go and don the boots and coat.

I was thinking that I would wear shoes today, guess not.

Oh well.


We will stop, perhaps vent about the snow, then giggle as we are being silly and carry on.

Have an awesome Wednesday.

Special Hello to:  all those folks who live where it snows.  “Merry Christmas”

Always, Carol & Alvin


Thought for the day…..

Today is Good Friday …. April 6th, 2012.

The sun is shining and the air is calm which is quite refreshing from the heavy snowfall of yesterday at this time.

When I arrived at work yesterday the power was off so we sat in the lobby until the lights were restored, then it was a few hours before our computers were back up and running.

There were huge branches down all over the area where our office is located.  Some had fallen on vehicles and others were blocking sidewalks and streets.

It was quite the spring storm.  At home, the deck and back yard look like the middle of winter….  When I was shovelling on the deck last night it was like shovels full of water, so heavy.

As I pushed the snow off the deck it rolled into balls of sort.  Perfect snowmen weather.

Well it was interesting, and now that the air has cleared the temperatures should warm up and the snow will melt and we shall have spring flowers blooming and the grass and the trees…. YAY.

I have to get into gear as I am going out in a little bit to work on the Census ….. I want to get finished by the end of this weekend.

So from our home to yours …..  I hope that you have a happy, safe and wonderful Easter Weekend…

Special Hello: to my sister who has returned home from a vacation to the U.S.

Always, Carol and Alvin ….
