Thought for the day…..

WHOO HOO ….. what a gorgeous weekend and morning …. today is Monday, April 23rd, 2012.

Today the citizens of Alberta go to the polls to vote for our provincial leadership.

I hope that everyone goes out to vote.


Yesterday I was reminded by my dog Alvin to be MORE PRESENT and to LIVE IN THE MOMENT.

It is funny that a creature that cannot communicate by our traditional standards …. can teach you so much.

My grand-puppies, Elton and Penny had spent Saturday night with us, and yesterday morning as the night before the three of them seem to have energy to burn as they raced around the living and kitchen.

A little jump here and there as they slid on the rugs/mats by the doors.  So cute.

Grabbing a bone from each other and running …. playing.

It is funny that whenever we were on the sofa or in bed …. that Alvin would make sure that he got as close to me as he could ….. you could not place a hair between us ….

It was a great weekend for me.

I had coffee with my good friend G, had walks with Alvin, raked the back yard, did some laundry, did some cleaning and spent time with my Elton and Penny  and of course, Alvin.

I am grateful to have had the weekend at home …. the whole weekend… outside job to go to….. it was great.

It was funny ….. after Elton and Penny had gone home yesterday morning …. my friend was already here for coffee …. when Al decided that he wanted up onto my lap…..he usually only does this when I do my morning writing before breakfast ….

So I picked him up and he looked around and then snuggled onto my lap…. I guess he no longer wished to share his Momma or at least that is what I felt he was thinking.

Well here it is almost time to leave for work …. Monday.

I hope that each and every one of you have the best day ever.

Special Hello to:  every pet owner …..


Always, Carol and me Alvin.
