Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Well another super HOT HOT Day in Edmonton.

I am not a heat person.

A tropical climate would not be for me.

I feel for animals in this heat …..

Of course, Alvin won’t stay in the bedroom with the fan blowing cold air.

He has to be with me in the hot office.

No fan and even with the window open there is no cool air.

So I guess this will be short and sweet.

I just cannot leave him in here for ten minutes or so while I do my blog.

He will not let me out of his sight.


One of my girl friends texted out of the blue to ask if she could come over.

She brought a nice “beverage” with her and I enjoyed it immensely.

We sat in the house and then on the deck.


I have some photos that I want to share but it is taking too long to download/upload them from phone to the computer.

They will be for another day.

Man it is hot in this room.

I can feel my forehead starting to release droplets of “water.”


Alvin is panting like crazy.


Update he is feeling better despite the heat wave.

Tomorrow is a new day.

Two more days of work and then vacation.


So excited.


Looks like another storm tonight.

I watered my potted flowers and moved some of them into the shelter of the house.


Thank goodness for fans.


Have an awesome Thursday.


Take care.

Be healthy.


Living with kindness and respect.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin



Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 10th day of April, 2014.

WOW, it is my day off …. got to sleep in and snuggle longer with “me Alvin.”

Always a treat.

In less than one hour two of my girlfriends are coming for “coffee” and a visit, of course.

I am so excited.

I love having company.

We should all take a break from our hectic routines and just kick back and enjoy.

There is nothing like time spent with your girlfriends or guy friends whichever or combination.

Have a beverage and maybe a treat if you are organized.

I would have made chocolate cranberry scones but I ran out of time.

Perhaps the thought will count……

So on this quiet …. slightly overcast morning ….. I hope that life is treating you with the love and respect that you deserve.

I hope that you are giving life the love and respect it deserves.

Make sense?

Just always remember you receive what you give.

It always boils down to that.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: my siblings ….. love you all ….. the ones on earth and the one who left us way too early ….. miss you little brother.

Always, Carol and Alvin
