Thought for the day….

Wow, welcome to Thursday, July 12th, 2012…..

Last night or very much earlier this morning we had a huge SUMMER STORM.

There was lightning like I have never seen before …..

Rain coming down in buckets swirling to rush down the storm drain ……

WIND ….. and HAIL…….

Last night like a good gardener and after I took Mr. Alvin for a long awaited walk (missed a couple or three nights, sorry Al), I gave all of my flowers, shrubs and trees a good drink.

Literally in the middle of the night we awoke to thunder and lightning …..

I heard the hail and hoped for the best.

I think that my flowers on the back deck will come back and be as beautiful as ever……. petunias for one, are quite hardy …..

Anyway, I am certain that most of Edmonton and area shared in this story ….. rain/thunder/lightning/wind and hail …… it is summer, after all.

I also noticed that the tree, my one lone tree out front is missing several leaves as they lay under the tree ….

Oh well, we got some moisture and we need it especially with the heat.

It did cool the air down and earlier when I was outside with Alvin …. it was heavenly…..

I hope that you all have a great day.

I am a bit late in writing this morning as I took a couple of extra snoozes after getting up with Alvin (thank goodness for the microwave kitchen timer and a comfy sofa).

So have a grand day.

Remember it is a new day ….. smile and be grateful ….. always ….. I am so grateful for my family, friends and home.  I am so blessed.

Gotta run ….. my ride will be here soon.

Special Hello to:  all those who braved the storm ……


Always, Carol and Alvin
