Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 30th and second last day of May 2013.

Wow, what a beautiful morning.

Guess what I finally did after talking and thinking about it for weeks.

This morning when Alvin first woke up I convinced him and barely did so to stay in bed until the alarm went off.

At the sound of the alarm I jumped out of bed.

Quickly made the bed, grabbed my sweat pants and glass of water and we went downstairs.

After Alvin had his breakfast and went outside and upon his arrival I nabbed him at the back door – wiped the wetness off his paws and scooped him up.

Now scooping him up these days is definitely a workout as he has put on some “winter” weight and headed for the front door.

I quickly got him into his harness and put on my running shoes and jacket – locked the house and away we went.

We walked to a nearby lake and went all the way around …..

It was so beautiful out with the mist rising up off the water.

The birds welcomed us with a glorious choir of music.

It felt like “heaven” and I mean so calming and stimulating at the same time.

We had a great walk.

Half an hour later we were back at home.

Now that definitely was better than hitting the sofa for an extra few zzz’s.

I am so grateful that we finally broke the cycle and went for that early morning walk.

YAY.  I am very proud of us.

Now it is almost time to leave again for the office.

I feel so much better knowing that Mr. Alvin had a lovely walk in before I leave for the day.

The sun is shining now which is refreshing after the abundant rainfall we had yesterday.

We need both so it is all good.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day and take the time to challenge yourself.

You never know what joy you might find …..  🙂

Special Hello to: all those early morning walkers ….. you rock.


Always, Carol and Alvin
