Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 6th day of November, 2017.

So this year we have snow and quite a lot of it.

Last year on this day it was raining and not freezing rain.

Funny, how things can be so different from one year to the next.

 

Alvin and I enjoyed our coffee company yesterday morning.

Our old neighbour came by for coffee and to pick up some tea catalogues.

It is that time of year when folks start thinking about picking up gift ideas.

We are keeping our gifts buying to a minimum.

Once again we are going to make and reuse items from around our homes.

It was so much fun last year and so much more environmental friendly.

Those are the gifts that mean the most, the ones that had thought go into the making.

Easy on the pocketbook or wallet, as it goes.

 

So perhaps something to consider.

We all have things around the house that we do not use any longer.

Perhaps something that a family member or friend has mentioned about liking.

Even repurposing an item.

So many great items.

Check on-line for ideas …. Pinterest.

There are so many places to check ….

 

Well almost time to bundle up and head out.

Have an awesome Monday.

 

Special Hello to: those folks who are thinking about what they can do to help the environment.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 7th day of September, 2016.

I accidentally typed 2026 and gave myself a quick start.

Can you just imagine what 2026 will be like?

Will be make even more advances in science and technology?

More than the past 50 years?

 

 

Wonder if that chip implant in our arm or hand will become a reality?

With all of our information in one place.

One quick swipe and no need for five thousand plastic cards to be in your purse or wallet.

Although I do think they could have everything on one or two cards.

Personal information on one card and financial on the other.

There would have to be some kind of security with the chip or minimum cards.

Interesting though.

They have started making cars that can drive themselves.

That is likely a good thing ….

With all of the bad drivers or more like bad habits having a “chauffeur” would be more safe.

People could then text to their hearts content.

Will they cure all man’s diseases?

Will we change?

Will we become better people, more compassionate over the next ten years.

Would a few more female heads of state make a difference?

Not sure.

Anyway food for thought.

 

Isn’t it funny how your thoughts can change so quickly.

I was thinking about relating a story about Alvin and his girlfriend and then I accidentally typed “2026.”

Whoops.

Alvin and Abi, a story for another day.

They are so cute.

He was playing kind of hard to get last night.

 

Well here we are almost time to leave for work.

I started catching an earlier bus yesterday so have to leave the house 15 minutes earlier than last week.

Kids are back to school.

The bus was jammed pack full of youngsters both on the way to work and on the way home.

 

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Special Hello to: all those bloggers out there entertaining the world with wit, charm and information.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 14th day of December, 2015.

Eleven days until Christmas Eve.

Alvin and I had a great Sunday …. the perfect extension to Saturday.

I put the finishing touches on some things around the house, wrapped gifts for work exchange and gifts for my kids.

We went to deliver Christmas cards and were invited into for a “cup of cheer” at one house.

I love going to this neighbour’s home as she is older and we always and I mean always have great conversations.

Her memory is sharp as a whip and she tells me things that I either did not know or have long since forgotten.

She loves Alvin almost as much as I do and he loves going to her house.

Not having anything to do with the “treats” that she lovingly prepares for him.

We visited for a few minutes at another neighbour and friend’s before heading home through all of the snow.

Upon arriving at home we found two young men likely in their twenties.

Literally standing in front of our house.

One had a cell phone and the other a snow shovel.

Odd combination, I thought as I did not recognize them.

I soon found out what was going on.

They were taking a FB (Facebook) Challenge to see if they could get two people out of five to give them $10.00 for shovelling their walks / driveways.

Well I was feeling in the festive mood having nothing to do with the double my friend had poured me earlier …. oh no.

More to do with the fact that I just figured that the $10.00 I had in my wallet would be money well spent to have all of that shovelling done ….

I do not mind shovelling but we have been shovelling every day…..

So they shovelled the front (including the other half of the duplex), my deck which is big and the driveway.

In the end I met two more of my neighbours ….. heard a bit of their stories …. and the shovelling was done.

Once finished I went into the house and started supper.

I figured things were okay as Mr. Alvin seemed to like them just fine and they liked him, too.

I hope that they found one more house in the time period allotted which was a total of 40 minutes.

Well guess I had better get this show on the road.

I also SKYPED with my sister and my great niece.

It was nice to catch up face to face.

It reminded me of when I was a little girl and dreamed of the days that we could speak and see the person you were talking with ….

I had the idea …. likely not first but I did have it when I was a young girl. ┬áThat was a long time ago …….

Happy Monday.

Do something today that you have never done before …… try something new.
