Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 11th day of July, 2018.

The sky is overcast but there are patches of clear sky hiding just beneath the rain clouds.

Last night the heavens opened and boy did we ever get some rain.

So happy that my flowers and one tomato plant are enjoying all this rain.

They lose a few petals with the strength of the rain pelting against them but in the end look better than ever.

So enjoying my flowers this year as I do actually every year.

The deck looks great.

The roses that line the walk entering our neighbourhood park are so gorgeous.

That fragrance stops you in your tracks as you walk between two rows of the pinkness that are those “wild roses.”

I wished that I could bottle that exact combination of pure bliss.

I could stand there forever.

Alvin likes the roses but for another reason.

He usually tries to pee on the bush.

I do tell him to be careful of the thorns.

Does he listen?

Sometimes.

The roses seem to thrive regardless of how many times he has peed on them.

Poor roses.

 

Last night the carpool dropped me off at 4:35 p.m. – so as it was too early for supper – I decided to grab the boy and head out for a walk.

It was perfect.

By that time the skies were filling with rain clouds big and perfect and the temperature had started to drop.

It was great.

Alvin decided just over the half way point that it was time to head back for home.

When he makes up his mind, that is it.

So back home.

Great to have two walks in the same day.

 

The evening was relatively quiet.

My friends called about the boards that I need to fix my fence in the back yard.

“N” wanted to come and see to ensure that he was selecting the proper ones.

Guess what, I even measured it perfectly (on Sunday all by myself).

Happy about that.

Not easy to measure something by yourself.

Although the measuring tape is metal and is kind of weighted at the end.

 

The training at work went well and was shorter than we first had been advised.

So practice over the next couple of days.

 

The breeze is helping to cool off the house as I have all of the windows open at this time.

It sure helps.

 

Well almost time to leave for work.

I am feeling just a tad tired as the storm kind of kept my up last night.

Just after I put my book down last night and turned out the light there was a major BOOM of THUNDER causing both Alvin and I to jump up.

At the same time.

 

I hope that you all have an awesome Wednesday.

Two more to go and then it is the weekend.

Wednesdays are nice …. mid week and all.

 

Special Hello to: my daughter who always makes me smile.

Always, Carol & Alvin
