Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

The sky is that pale blue with a hint of pink, oh so very pretty.

There is a refreshing coolness to the air but you can tell it is warming up.

The trees are not moving …. no breeze.

Alvin is on his blanket beside me.

My guard friend.

My companion.

He follows me everywhere.

 

We started our Sunday morning by an early morning walk.

Everything worked in tandem to perfection.

We thoroughly enjoyed that walk which made me think we should one again start taking those early morning walks.

Although during the week it would have to be about 2.5 hours earlier than Sunday.

I had time to do a few chores before our friend G joined us for coffee and a visit.

I am so grateful to be surrounded by great people.

Humphrey came for the day as his Mama had plans for the day.

It was one of those hot muggy days.

Nothing to complain about for sure …..

Last night it rained again.

This mornings puddles in the back as per usual.

I have all of the windows open to cool the house down for Alvin.

The bathroom on the main floor is always cooler as it is on the inside wall and has no windows, of course.

So I will leave that door open.

It is his place to go in case of an emergency.

 

Do you spend time during your day thinking about things?

What do you think about?

Your life?

Money?

Your health?

Friends and Family?

Shopping?

Food, cooking?

Computers?

Technology?

Lack of things?

Too much of something?

We all have approximately 60,000 thoughts per day.

So I guess we have to think about something.

Most of our thoughts are just random bits of nothing, I suppose.

A thought as you are walking …. oh the grass is a brilliant shade of green.

Or looking at the sky …. will it rain today?

Not every thought is share worthy.

Can you imagine that for one moment?

If we share every thought that we had with the world?

I suppose it would be an even louder world than it is.

As I get older …. I every much appreciate SILENCE.

The quietness of things.

Just sitting still …..

No television.

No sound or few sounds.

No noise.

I find it comforting and calming.

I guess one could say that is meditation ….

Being still.

Being quiet.

 

Well here it is almost time to go prepare things for the day.

For Alvin, that is.

See if he has to go outside once again.

Close windows.

Open door.

Fresh water … no, I did that already.

Good Mama.

 

Have an awesome Monday.

If you are able try to take a couple of minutes to be still.

Sit on the grass under a tree.

Sit on the sofa with no television on.

Lay on your bed.

Just close your eyes.

Breathe deeply ….

Release ….

Again ….

Relax.

Happy Monday.

 

Remember Kindness and Respect are what you would like to have – so why wouldn’t you think that others would feel the same?

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, the 26th day of March, 2013.

Wow, spring is now upon us.

YAY.

 

So how are you today?

What are you thinking about at this very minute?

Do you find that when you are thinking great thoughts that somehow “not nice ones” seem to sneak in?

I find that from time to time.

So what do you do?

Personally, I totally change the positive thought that brought on the less than nice one …..

I find that different thoughts change the flow.

It does help.

Or do something physical …..

Most of all ….. breathe deeply.

There are all sorts of things that can help change the negative thoughts.

Can you imagine what kind of world we would have if every single being on this planet ….. focused on and thought positive, good, happy thoughts.

It would be incredible.

We would feel the positive energy flowing through the air.

Perhaps if we start here with you and me ….

Start at this very moment and let us see how far we can spread this good energy.

Mmmm,  breathe in and out.

Feel the love.

Think of your favourite things …. of your favourite people ….. places……..fragrances and aromas.

Feel the warmth.

Feel it deep down in your heart and soul to the tips of your toes and back.

Have a great day my friends.

Let us make this the best planet in the solar system.

Thank you for coming with me on my journey.

It is great having company.

Special Hello to: ¬† ¬†“YOU”

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
