Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 8th day of April, 2019.

I can see whispers of clear morning sky to the East as the SUN begins to rise.

I love sunrises.

So beautiful the way the sky changes from the deep dark night to the bright morning light.

The sky appears to be a canvas of brush strokes that have been smeared until there were light undertones.

If I look under the semi closed blind on my office window I can see that more of the night sky has begun to change.

Nature is so glorious.

Happy Monday morning.

 

Well here we are starting a new week.

Alvin and I enjoyed our weekend.

As you know Master Teddy slept over Friday night and went home late Saturday afternoon.

We walked on our own and also with Humphrey the Cat and his Mom.

I would not call it a walk as much as it was a sniff fest for Humphrey.

He looked so cute with his harness and leash.

Even children smiled and said “Oh, wow a cat on a leash.”

Humphrey has a good Momma.

Some folks just let their cats roam without a thought.

In this day and age that is not wise.

We had fun.

Going out with Humphrey is starting to give Alvin some patience, starting anyway.

Humphrey has a couple of favourite bushes that he loves to stop and explore.

Alvin just waits outside with the Moms.

Likely a good idea.

Humphrey seems to navigate the rose bushes but methinks that Mr. Alvin might end up covered with thorns.

Tonight Humphrey will be coming over as his Mom has her dance class.

 

This morning as I was sitting down at the computer and before I placed Mr. Alvin’s blue blanket on the floor beside me.

Alvin “whined.”

His way of telling me that he wants/needs the blanket.

I guess he figures when I sit down – down goes the blanket.

Sorry, buddy.

I am not fast enough.

 

Well almost time to go downstairs and grab the lunch etc.

I love that no boots, big mitts/gloves, heavy coat and scarf are required to go outside.

Just shoes and a light jacket.

YAY, SPRING.

I am so grateful that we have different seasons.

I also noticed in my little garden in the backyard that some of the plants are already up and green.

So happy about that.

 

I hope that you have a wonderful Monday.

Go outside, smell the fresh air and maybe go for a walk.

Enjoy NATURE.

Always a good way to start, take a break or end the day.

Maybe you are retired and can do all three.

I have started to go for a walk on my morning coffee break.

Feels so good.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who are retired …..

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 3rd day of January, 2017.

We are back in a deep freeze here in Edmonton.

Dropped to minus 25 degrees celsius overnight.

Oh joy …… at least no moisture, er snow.

Back to work today.

I had the most wonderful Christmas break with my family and friends.

Alvin and I enjoyed extra long walks on the nice days.

Thank goodness cause this is way too cold for me Alvin to be outside longer than to do his “needs be.”

January is off to a great start.

Had visits with one of my girl friends yesterday and my daughter the previous day.

2017 is a year of patience, more kindness, patience and laughter.

I mentioned patience twice because quite often it is the lack of or not enough of patience that drags us to a bad place.

If we had the patience then the rest might fall easier into place.

For me patience is a big thing …. keeps me in a better place.

So in a few minutes I will be donning the longest winter coat, big scarf, mitts and tall boots.

You need to be covered in good layers on a day like today.

 

I sure hope that the first few days of this New Year find you well and ready to have the best year of your life.

We have to at least start in that great place and hopefully this will be the one that goes as smoothly as life can.

To good health, great joy and an abundant 2017.

 

Special Hello to: ┬ámy Family …… this is our year.

Always, Carol and Alvin
