Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 3rd day of March, 2018.

WOW, we have SNOW.

Originally Alvin and I were up at 5:00 a.m. and in order for me boy to go into the back yard, I had to SHOVEL.

Yup, shovelling the deck at 5:00 a.m. in my p.j.’s and my coat, of course.

Once done, we hit the sofa for a couple of hours before starting the “waking process.”

Almost as much soon as earlier.

Made coffee …. my neighbour while making her way over to the house started to shovel.

So still in my p.j.’s went out and joined in the shovelling and even shovelled the neighbour’s in the other half of the duplex.

Feeling extra kind this morning.

Although likely by the time they leave the house – it won’t be noticeable.

Oh, gotta love winter.

I will say that I have the most comfy p.j.’s.

So in between items on my TO DO LIST, I will be shovelling.

Still have not done the driveway so it will be likely over 6 inches accumulated by now.

Good exercise and the snow is light and fluffy.

Back to 5:00 a.m. – I glanced out of the living room window and saw the street lights shining on the snow giving the appearance of billions of diamonds.

So beautiful.

So thoughts for this day ….. just a quiet time ….. get some chores done ….. snuggle with me, Alvin ….. enjoying life.

Perhaps you are able to just stay home ….. do some work around the house and enjoy life.

I hope that you all have an awesome Saturday.

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends.

P.S. I counted the number of family and friends with birthdays on my calendar for the month of March and there are SIXTEEN.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 27th day of January, 2018.

The SUN is shining this morning.

The sky is beautiful with a mixture of colour and clouds.

The thin dark clouds appear to be dissipating and the sun shining more brightly.

What a lovely break after the overcast snowy past couple of days.

Shovelling, argh there was shovelling.

I did all but the driveway last night and will have to do that today.

We have banks of snow on the deck and on the front lawn from me throwing the snow to the side.

I will say this on my walk to the bus yesterday morning the snow shone like a billion diamonds in the street lights.

So beautiful.

 

YAY, it is the weekend.

I must make a TO DO LIST as I have so much that I would like to accomplish this weekend.

So many chores and such running through my head.

Stuff to do.

We all have stuff to do on the weekend.

I sort through the needs to be done stuff first ….

Now Alvin really could use a hair cut and bath.

It is COLD outside.

So the hair cut will be a trim and the bath will be a bath but I will ensure he is dry before he goes outside.

I also have to measure his food as it is getting low.

I was going to get off the bus and go pick it up this week but four out of the five days I got a ride home and one I got off at the grocery store.

The vet is on the other side of home.

Last night it was snowing, the traffic was well crazy and I did not reach the house until 6:00 p.m.

Usually I get home while taking the bus about 5:15 p.m. and with rides it was 4:45 or earlier.

Monday is supposed to be warmer.

A temporary reprieve.

So if there is enough food for Alvin I will get off the bus Monday after work and pick him up a bag.

If there is not enough – well I will bundle up and go.

I think it is too cold for the boy to be out.

I especially think of his poor little paws.

Always laundry, clean the office (put the smaller Christmas tree away to the basement), vacuum, wash floors.

Prepare my friend’s 40th birthday gift and card for next Friday.

I know there are more things to do and that is why I shall sit down and make a list so that nothing gets missed.

I have two days so no need to worry.

Alvin will help where he can.  LOL.

Well I suppose that I should not put off the inevitable any longer as I need to get changed and get this day going.

It was and is always Alvin that makes me get up and get going on the weekend.

I would love to dilly dally longer but he is the BOSS …. get up and get going.

No laying around for long with him.

He first was up this morning at before 4:00 am and I managed to have him stay in bed until a few minutes later.

Oh, I have not been up since then – I am not that silly.

I do have a great life and am grateful that I can do what needs to be done virtually on my schedule.

That would be on the weekends only.

WORK, is another story.

Nothing seems to go according to plan.

But that is okay.

If everything was scheduled that may eventually be boring.

Okay, I am going now.

Have a wonderful day.

Enjoy the weekend and I hope that you are able to have some down time for yourself.

Even though Alvin sometimes cracks the whip, I manage to have some downtime …..

 

Special Hello to: all those folks out there who have a dog in their household, enjoy.

Always, Carol & Alvin
