Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 4th day of February, 2018.

This is what happens when you are home for a week, suddenly it is February 4th.

WOW, Hello February.

We may not be off to the best of starts but alas we have started the month and that is what counts.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY NIECE “M” who is 21 years old today.

WOW, I cannot believe it.  Have a wonderful day.

I was able to get to the Doctor yesterday and am happy to report that I am on the mend.

No bladder infection (did I just write that for the world to see), no chest congestion, blood pressure and such all A-OKAY.

Doctor even said I was his easiest patient.

I am thinking he meant best prepared.

I only had to wait for about one hour so that was not bad.

The only thing was I was in a room filled with SICK people, coughing and sneezing.

Some folks freely coughing and sneezing into the air with no respect for those around them.

No masks …… I tried to cover my mouth and nose as to hopefully keep those germs away from me.

I am feeling better and do not wish to go through this again anytime soon.

In Saskatchewan, when visiting a medical clinic you are asked if you have a cough, cold or flu and if so, you are required to wear a mask.

What a GREAT IDEA?

I had thought of that while at home but did not have one to wear.

I should have asked them for one.

Next time, I will.

I plan to bring up this idea to Alberta Health Service.

 

After seeing the Doctor, I went to the grocery store where I called and booked a taxi.

Worked out perfectly, I was able to take my time and not having to rush.

Taxi was pretty much on time.

The driver was nice and carried my groceries to the house for me.

I tipped him “well.”

 

The sky is bright with the sun that is rising in the east.

It is cold but warming up.

Thank goodness.

 

Just a few things to do around the house to prepare for work tomorrow.

Wow, it seems like forever since I have been to work.

 

Alvin is going to wonder what happened or not.

I like to think that he will miss me as he usually follows me wherever I go around the house.

Even yesterday when we were out back and I was shovelling.

I was only out for a few minutes but he was cold and rightly so.

So I let him into the house and he cried for me.

Ah, poor baby.

That was it for the shovelling.

 

Well I guess I should get this show on the road.

I am so grateful to family and friends for their phone calls, emails, FB messages during my “sick time” at home.

Still cannot believe that I was home for a whole week.

 

Special Hello to: all my family and friends, thank you.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

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

Oh, how I have missed my regular routine of writing.

It has been the longest week of my life.

Even today with only making breakfast, and a couple times up the stairs I still feel a bit on the ill side.

I did not go to work at all this week.

Cannot believe that I missed a whole week.

Thankfully I have had a couple of messages to let me know that a co-worker is helping out with the mail.

Nothing worse than going back to work after being sick to mountains of work.

That would be enough to push the clock back.

 

Perhaps even Alvin is tiring of me being at home.

It almost seems that way.

 

Last night I did push a bit of snow around on the deck and out front.

Likely not the best idea.

But I did the back first and then rested (not really shovelled well).

When I shovelled the front it was not a job well done for sure but it was all that I could muster up the energy to do.

I can see the garage roof tops covered in a thick blanket of snow.

I can only imagine what is on the roof of the house.

Hopefully our roofs can handle the weight.

 

Well today I am going to venture out and go to the Doctor.

One of my friends is going to drop me off on her way out but I am on my own to come home.

The walk in all of this snow considering that I am not at full strength kind of frightens me but I will see how I feel when I go to leave the Doctors.

If I feel at all weak, I will call a friend.

Making certain to have phone numbers with me or failing the phone a friend, I will call a TAXI.

There is so much snow and the walk ways will not be shovelled.

 

Well almost time to go and have a shower, to try and feel myself once again.

Giving myself lots of time this morning.

Over two hours until my friend arrives to pick me up.

I am sorry that I was out of commission this week.

Hard to write when you are not feeling well.

I hope that this finds you all well and that you do not get this flu.

It hangs on with a grip that I have not remembered seeing in past experiences.

Take care and if you are not feeling well – stay home.

Our health care providers are telling everyone with the flu to stay home and away from people.

But I need to go for a couple of reasons.

One to ensure that I do not have a bladder infection although I only have/had one symptom and the other for work.

Funny how even sitting typing is tiring.

ARGH.

I want to be healthy again.

Well I should go as it may take awhile to take a shower.

The neighbours just got home and had “fun” walking from their car to the house.

They do not have a garage so it piles up from the garage pad to the house.

Their back yard also has lots of steps which ware hard to navigate in white blinding snow.

Okay time to go.

Have a great day.

Stay warm, dry and healthy.

 

Special Hello to: all my family, friends and fellow bloggers.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 7th day of September, 2015.

The last day of the long weekend ….. the sky appears to be clearing up and the rain has stopped.

It started to rain Saturday evening and stopped overnight.

Safe to say things are green ….. my flowers are a bit droopy with all of the rain.

What a grand weekend I am having.

My friend from Regina went home yesterday ….. her flight left Edmonton about 5:15 p.m.

We had a great time …… just kicking back and chatting.

Alvin really liked her and often times I found him laying in between us as we sat on the sofa.

Now today time to finish the laundry and prepare for my first solo Steeped Tea party next weekend.

I want to prepare my script so that I say all of the things that I want / need to …..

It is exciting …..

I have a few questions for my leader so will chat with her later.

Hopefully the sun does shine this afternoon so that it shines on me and Alvin as we go for a walk.

I hope that you had an awesome weekend.

Surrounded by friends and family.

Perhaps you travelled for a weekend getaway which is always nice.

Well I should be getting along ….. get dressed and start that laundry.

I do want to clean up this blog ….. some of the categories got messed up one day and as I am “slightly technology challenged” I did not fix then….. well I was going to have my daughter help me but perhaps I can figure it out on my own.

Special Hello to: all those friends visiting/visited this long weekend, I hope that you will always have sweet memories to keep you entertained on long winter nights or raining days.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

WELCOME TO MONDAY, DECEMBER 31st, 2012 …… the last day of 2012 …. NEW YEAR’s EVE.

WOW, truly this year has flown by.

It has been a great year for me and Alvin.

We are healthy, live in a beautiful house and have great family and friends.

We have the perfect life, and each day I am grateful for all that we are and all that we have.

I hope that as the year ends for you that you can reflect with a smile on your face and joy in your heart.

There will always be things that happen during each year that truly are not wonderful whether it is a passing of a family member or a dear friend …. the memories keep them alive in your heart and mind.

I lost some dear friends and family this year and although life will not be the same without them, it was my very great pleasure to have known them, and they made my life all the richer and complete.

We are so blessed to live in a country where peace reigns supreme.

Where for the most part we can walk down our streets undisturbed.

Where we can speak our minds without personal danger or imprisonment.

I hope that on this New Year’s Eve that you stay safe.

If you go out celebrating, please make certain that someone who is not “drinking” drives the car or better yet catch a bus or take a taxi.

BE SAFE and keep those safe around you.

Have fun wherever you go.

Alvin and I will be at home …. curled up on the sofa….. enjoying each other’s company and a movie.

So from our home to yours ….. have the best last day of 2012.

May 2013 be your best year ever and I wish that all of your dreams would come true.

May perfect health, love and laughter, great joy, abundance and wealth surround and keep you in the New Year.

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin ……..
