Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 29th day of March, 2015.

WOW, only two days left in March.

This morning the sun is shining ever so brightly.

The sky is clear.

The air has a slight coolness.

Happy Spring.

Just a few more days until April ….

Closer and closer to when I can go and get flowers.

Still over one month away but getting there.

Picking out flowers is probably one of my most favourite things to do.

Over the past few years it has been a spring – early summer ritual for me and my daughter.

The colours and the fragrances are so delightful.

It takes us hours to go through our neighbourhood greenhouse.

We have been going to a privately owned nursery for the past few years.

I believe in supporting our locals as much as possible.

The big box stores all have flowers and lots of times for better pricing.

I still like to support the local nurseries and greenhouses.

Mmm, this summer I will be home week nights and weekends so I will have lots to time to fuss over my flowers.

I think this may be the year that I remove the remaining shrubs in the front bed.

They always go wild on me and I think it might be nice to have some perennials out front.

Needs to be some that like to face north that is the only thing.

It is a huge bed so lots to fill and I will likely needs some dirt to top it up.

But time will tell.

Now I have time to do it all.

Dreaming of sitting on the deck under the umbrella reading a book, admiring my flowers and sipping on a cup of coffee.

Alvin will be laying in the shade or even in the sun for a bit close by.

Oo summer …. YAY.

Well time to go and catch up with my daughter before getting ready to go to the store.

This will be my third last shift.

I hope that you all have a lovely Sunday.

Special Hello to: all those people who love to plant flowers.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 24th day of February, 2014.

I hope you are feeling fantastic this morning.

The moon was shining brightly in the early morning sky upon my rising from the warmth and comfort of my bed.

I love the moon and the stars.

I love looking up and letting my imagination run wild.

Do you imagine?

Imagining plays a huge role in dreaming – in your dreams.

Sometimes we lose our imaginations as we grow old because we get stuck in the “adult” responsibilities and think that there is no place for “imagination.”

But that is not true.

We all need our imaginations to make better our lives.

So place pretend ….. use your imagination to realize your dreams.


I hope that your day is fun and that you receive unexpected great news.

Thank you.

Special Hello to: all those adults who still use their imaginations.

Always, Carol and Alvin  ….. (oh, I miss my little guy who spent the night at his sister’s house) …..
