Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 9th day of March, 2019.

WOW, one week into March and one week closer to spring.

The first day of spring is fast approaching but will it be the actual date that spring arrives.

Time will only tell.

This coming week we are to have above zero temperatures and with that more SNOW.

I shovelled twice yesterday …. once being leaving for work and once after Alvin and I went for a walk.

When we walked only about half of my neighbours had shovelled.

Alvin did his hop jump through the snow dragging me behind him.

What a sight that must have been.

For some reason once again we were up about 3:00 and now have been up since before 6:00 a.m.

Early, early for a Saturday.

Normally on the weekend we are up a bit later …. say 10 p.m. and then up about 8:00 p.m.

Not today.

At least on the bright side, I will have my work done early.

By 7:00 a.m. I will have my blog posted, bedding changed, laundry gathered, and the first load of laundry in the washing machine.

Also coffee on and starting breakfast.

Already did some work on my taxes this morning before this post.

I guess there is something to be said for getting up early.

But I am up at 5:00 or earlier during the week ….

Oh well …..

Today will be different …. will see what happens.

 

The sky remains dark out of my office window.

Must be overcast.

No light on the horizon.

ARGH, does that mean more snow for today?

No, please no more snow.

I just want birdies singing, buds on the trees and blades of grass sticking out of the nearly melted snow.

Is that too much to ask?????

Am I having a moment, sorry I am.

 

Well I better hop to it.

Lots to do.

Really looking forward to coffee this morning.

 

Have an awesome day.

Remember …. no matter what happens ….. SPRING is closer than WINTER.

Winter is ending ……

 

Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: all my friends and family ……

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 27th day of September, 2018.

Dark outside as fall continues.

We had a rainy Wednesday but does not appear to have rained overnight or at least the front sidewalk does not show any additional moisture.

So that rain kept us from our walk.

 

How are you this day?

Did you have a good Wednesday?

I have to apologize to my son-in-law as I sent on-line Birthday Wishes but I neglected to call him on the phone and wish him a Happy Birthday.

I will see him on Saturday and can apologize in person.

It is strange how we can get so wrapped up in “our little piece of the world” that we forget to do things OR perhaps it is a sign that I am aging.

ARGH.

I am reading and doing puzzles and working with the hopes to stave off the forgetfulness aspect of aging that comes with many years.

They say to exercise your brain.

I would say that I exercise my brain every day at work.

There is always something new and always different information to analyze.

 

Mr. Alvin had me up at 3:00 for now apparent reason.

OR perhaps it was because we went to bed earlier than usual.

I don’t know but those early morning wakening play havoc with my brain.

Then we were up at 4:00 and then up to say up at 5:10 a.m.

Perhaps it is only because he had to pee.

Now I can relate to that …..

Age what a wonderful thing.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Remember whatever your age – exercise your BRAIN.

Learn something ….. do a puzzle …. do something.

So important.

 

Special Hello to: my sister …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 8th day of November, 2017.

Our office is closed today and we are attending an off-site staff meeting.

One of my co-workers is picking me up in a few minutes.

I would have had a nice sleep in this morning but Mr. Alvin had other plans.

He was up early again.

Oh well.

Then as I was deciding on a necklace to wear the worse thing happened.

The longest bead necklace I have …. broke and beads went everywhere.

Most of them landed in my white area rug in my bedroom.

Kind of funny and sad …..

So I gathered most of them.

I am certain that I will be finding beads for quite some time.

I do not think that Alvin will eat them …. hope not.

NO time.

 

Well I have to run.

Have a great Wednesday.

 

Happy Wednesday.

 

Special Hello to: all those ladies who wear beads and have had them break …….

Always, Carol & Alvin.

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 5th day of November, 2017.

Well we turned our clocks back last night or some may be turning them this morning.

We went to bed quite early last night about 9:30 p.m.

I was whipped as Mr. Alvin had been up extremely early Saturday morning and then we were busy throughout the day.

Anyway I was wide awake at 5:00 a.m. but decided to hold off for a bit and then fell back asleep until 6:30 a.m.

I have not been up this early on a Sunday for awhile.

We both had breakfast, Alvin of course had his around 4:00 a.m., I set off the smoke alarm again with my toaster, put away the laundry that had been drying, am washing a load of towels and finished drying another

load of towels so it feels like I have accomplished something and it is still early.

My old neighbour is coming for coffee at 9:00 a.m. so I will definitely be ready.

Just have to grind some coffee beans for an extra fresh cup of coffee.

I baked a pumpkin spice cake last night for a treat with coffee.

Yesterday after my daughter went home and our unplanned “shopping” trip to the REUSE Centre – Alvin and I went for a walk.

I spent the afternoon doing laundry and decorating the house.

It looks great.

So I will have a quiet day after the coffee date.

Perhaps make my list of things that I have to do over the next weeks until Christmas.

Setting a time-line always helps me to get things done.

 

Well I hope that you are all great …..

Remember to take some time to relax.

 

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello: all those dreamers ….. keep dreaming ….

Always, Carol & Alvin
