Good Morning ALL! How are you doing this fine Wednesday morning? Alvin and I are well and had a good night’s sleep. The sun is shining most brightly this morning and I imagine that the birds are singing happily as well. Mr. Alvin is chirping away and staring at me from his little bed in my office. Life is good. Today is the birthday of one of my little friend’s from down the street, he will be “11.” I cannot believe how big him and his two little brothers are getting. Time flies. We were invited to stop by for an outdoor “Happy Birthday” driveway event.

I heard a couple of great tips for folks. If you have old blankets and towels (of course in good condition) – you can donate them to an animal shelter. That totally makes sense. I wished that I had thought of that sooner. Also if you have old luggage (of course good condition) – you can donate to foster care. The wee children when they go into foster care and if they move around …. lots of times they do not have a suitcase ….. only a garbage bag. If this is for real, that is terrible. We all have an extra suitcase that we are not using ….. how about making a donation. My tips for the day. Also one from my heart ….. if you see trash on your driveway, on the street or in the gutter by your home please pick it up and put in your garbage bin, please.

Yesterday I worked the late shift. Alvin and I enjoyed a wonderful walk at 3:00 p.m. on my “lunch” break. The shift went pretty well as that shift goes.

Today the temperature is going to be another +18 celsius ….. summertime, summertime, summertime. I cannot wait to plant flowers. Speaking of flowers. I brought my “Canna” Lily up from the basement to put her outside to enjoy the sunlight and “bad” momma I forgot to bring her in last night. When I thought of it as I rose this morning, I ran outside to check on her at 4:00 (that is when Alvin got up) and she was okay. Thank goodness. So I brought her in and will put Canna out for the sunshine a bit later this morning. So grateful that she did not freeze. So grateful.

Wishing you all a great Wednesday. Go out and enjoy the sunshine.

Continuing to live with kindness, respect, compassion and patience. Always working on the patience!

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday morning the 20th day of May, 2015.

The sun is shining at 5:50 a.m. here in Edmonton and has been up for a bit.

It is so nice to have lightness out when I arise from bed at 5:00 a.m.

I love this time of morning before the day gets loud and busy.

I love snuggling with Mr. Alvin on my lap as I write in my gratitude journal at 5:00 a.m. just after he has had his breakfast.

I love the SUNSHINE.

I love that the temperature is much warmer this morning.

I love that the temperature inside the house was 69 this morning without the thermostat on.

I love that I am me.

What do you love?

Take a couple of minutes and write down some of the things that you love.

Write down the first ones that pop into your head.

Just be in the moment.

If you do not have pen and paper just think list them in your mind.

My list could / would go on forever.

I love my daughter and son-in-law and grand-puppies.

I love the dew on the grass in the morning.

I love birds singing.

I love green grass.

Guaranteed you will be smiling and feel a million times better when you think about what you love.

I am so grateful this morning that Mr. Alvin is feeling better.

His Doctor said sometimes they get “bugs” …… too ( not the ones that fly around like a bee or fly ).

Have an awesome day ……

Life just gets better and better.

YAY, I have some extra time to snuggle with Mr. Alvin before I leave for work.

Always a great way to start the day ….

Happy Wednesday Everyone.

Special Hello to:  Hello family …… we miss you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Happy Wednesday May 2nd, 2012 ….. it is so wonderful to have light outside before leaving for work in the morning.

I so enjoy this time of day (once I get over the initial shock of getting out of bed).  LOL

I have learned to be a morning person because I love so much about this time of day.

In the summer, the birds are singing, the colours of the sun as it begins to rise in the morning sky …..

The smell of the early morning ….. all of the sights and sounds that you only have at this time of day.

The dew on the grass as it sparkles in the morning sunshine.

I also wanted to mention that if you have access to SKYPE, please use it…. it is such a wonderful tool to connect people.

It is the next best thing to being there.

Last night I SKYPED with my cousin Janice who lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

We talked and laughed and laughed and talked …. about our current lives and about past family…

I love talking with her so much …. she is one of the best things from my childhood.

I have so many fond memories of growing up with my cousin, Janice and her family.

Thank you Janice for that lovely conversation …..  🙂

GO SKYPE… and have that conversation with your cousin, friends ….. all the people that you miss, and want to connect with …..

It is easy for the most part (I am by no means a computer junkie).

I hope that you are enjoying your Wednesday wherever you are on this wonderful Earth of ours.

Life is meant to be lived and share …..

Special Hello: to my cousin Janice and thank you so much for the lovely walk down memory lane and chat about the now.

Always, Carol and Alvin
