COUNTDOWN: 60 Days to 60

Today is Sunday, July 16, 2017 and it is the 25th day until my 60th Birthday.

OMG, getting closer to only three weeks till the big day and even less until my sister arrives.

I cannot wait.

Seems like forever since I wrapped my arms around here and that we giggled till our tummies hurt.

Better than going to some foreign country or to some tropical beach spending time with my sister, my daughter and my brother.

This will be a vacation to remember for sure.

Time to get things in order in the house, thankfully the basement is done although really it was in order.

Make up the menu for the company.

Make up the guest room just in time for the company.

Freshly washed sheets, a must.

Oh I cannot wait.

We do not see each other more than once a year but when we do we make up for it.

Time well spent.

I am so excited to have two whole weeks off from work.

The first time that I have taken 10 whole days off in a row in the almost 6 years that I have worked there.

Very exciting.

 

1998:  a big year.  My daughter graduated from High School with Honours, Started University of Regina that September in the Arts Program majoring in Film.  Hard to believe my baby is 18.

1999: the end of another decade ….. so much anticipation for the New Millennium ….. first year on the new computer system at work working out the bugs and kinks.

 

Always, Carol

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 26th day of February, 2016.

I feel as though I have missed a day and I guess I have, at that.

On Tuesday evening when I was getting into bed …. as I leaned to turn off the light and fall back onto the bed ….. I pulled/strained a neck muscle.

I could tell straight away ….. it was very painful.

All that night I struggled with getting comfortable, and with sleep.

The next morning which was Wednesday …. I got up and ready (hot shower helped), and went to work.

It was painful and even making me feel nauseous ….. I got some pain relief from a friend at work.

So it was manageable for the rest of the day.

That evening once the pain relief had worked off …. back again.

I did the heat on my neck and that helped.

So yesterday Thursday I stayed at home ….. resting it ….. applying heat.

Finally today it feels so much better, I can go back to work ….

So in essence I missed a day ….. a day with you.

I hope that everyone is doing well.

So happy to get back to normal.

Makes me so grateful to be healthy once again.

We often too many times take for granted good health.

Having something wrong as minor as it was ….. it is great to get back to the usual routine.

I think that Alvin like having me at home ….. he enjoyed being outside off and on during the course of the day.

My daughter came after work bringing supper and then taking me for groceries.

So thoughtful she is ……

Well I guess it is almost time to pack up and get ready to leave for the bus …..

Another gorgeous morning ….

We are so blessed.

Have an awesome day ….

So glad to be back.

Special Hello to:  YOU ALL ….. Have the best day ever!

Always, Carol and Alvin
