The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! Happy second day of Spring. How are you this morning? I am doing great. The sky is clear and I can see the beautiful sunrise. Our first day of spring storm only lasted until late afternoon then the sky cleared and was the most brilliant powder blue with the Sun beaming so proudly. This morning I remembered a dream from earlier: there was a plan to go out for supper, the only thing was the restaurant that one of my friends wanted to take us to was in Vancouver. Did not stop us. Next thing I know we were on a plane on our way to Vancouver, British Columbia with a table readied and waiting for us. I do not remember who the friends were but clearly someone had connections and more money than me. It was awesome. I have a song in my head this morning, one of my favourites “Missing Piece” by Vance Joy. I love this song. So my head is filled with good thoughts this morning, a great way to begin a work week. I did however, hit the snooze button twice, argh. Oh well, what can you do.

Yesterday was a good day even though we did not get out for a walk. I gave the boy a haircut and bath. Earlier in the morning I gave him some of his anxiety meds hoping it would help. It did a bit and was enough that I managed to get his paws trimmed slowly and carefully. I realized that his nails are really long and they seem to be growing more quickly. I will be calling and making him an appointment for as soon as I can get him in this week. Yesterday I also made some “energy bites” and they turned out pretty good. I use different ingredients each time that I make them. I am all about using what you have and making it work. It worked. Does not always work out perfectly but it certainly did this time.

Once the snow had stopped falling yesterday afternoon, we went into the backyard and I pushed some of the snow around on the deck. It was so heavy and in hindsight I wished that I had made a snowman. It was the most perfect consistency. Let my inner child out. Missed the opportunity. Next time I have a thought and the opportunity arises, I am taking it. Do not miss out.

I am so grateful for the good day that Alvin and I had yesterday. I also watched “The Pelican Brief” late afternoon. There are so many great actors in that movie. Julia Roberts, Denzel Washington, Sam Shepard, Tony Goldwyn, John Heard, Stanley Tucci, John Lithgow, James Sikking, Hume Cronyn, Cynthia Nixon, Robert Culp, William Atherton. Star studded cast for sure. I have seen this movie several times over the years but it is now on NetFlix so I watched it again.

Well time to head downstairs and grab my coffee. I am grateful for my dreams, for my family and friends, for the sunrise this morning, for that cup of coffee, for the Mary Kay lip gloss that I am wearing (feels so nice), for good health, for time with my Alvin, to be working from home and for my life. Life is good.

Have a wonderful Monday.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus and possibilities.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. my daughter is popping by after her dental appointment (braces) and will finish her day working from here. Mom upstairs and daughter downstairs. Cannot wait to have her in the house.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 19th day of July, 2016.

What a beautiful morning.

From my windows I can see part of the sunrise and that the sky is that perfect light blue BUT ( why does there have to be that word looming over everything ) …???

Well from moment to moment as I was getting ready I noticed that dark shadows or that the sun was not shining as bright.

I guess it could be many things but likely those wretched rain clouds.

Now I certainly do not wish to complain as we did need rain in the spring and early summer but quite frankly some sunshine would hit the spot right about now.

It will not be too long before grass and plants begin to turn yellow.

Although my lawn does not look like it has too much moisture.

Funny thing ….. getting the moisture level just right.

Well I am going to go with Mother Nature knowing what she is doing and leave it at that for now.

I am way too excited to be worrying about that ….

Tonight is the night my company arrives ….. I am so excited.

We are ready …..

Alvin is excited to meet someone new as he always is ….

Mr. Social.

Mr. Community Greeter

Mr. Neighbourhood Welcome Waggly Tail.

Well this is going to be ultra short this morning as somehow the minutes seemed to have evaporated and it is almost time for me to leave the coup.

Work is calling my name once again.

Perhaps one of these days the lotto winning numbers will have my name attached to them.

I hope that you have an awesome Tuesday.

Full of sunshine and rainbows.

They can exist together.

Why not!

 

Special Hello to: my friend who will be here in just a few hours and WELCOME TO EDMONTON.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

As I type this message, the morning air surrounding me is quiet (except for the hum of an airplane flying over head).

I love the mornings all quiet and stuff.

Always remember to take some time and just be quiet.

Good to quiet the mind.

RELAX.

Blessings to all.

Have a great day.

Always, Carol
