Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Sun rise beautiful and the skies are a mixture of clouds and light.

So we will take that…..

The heavens opened up while I was on the bus on my way home.

In fact, the rain started when I was about 10 minutes from my bus stop.

By the time, I got off the bus, the rain had slowed down.

Luckily for me and all my fellow bus riders.

I managed to be mostly dry upon reaching home.

Which was a good thing.

Alvin went outside to the back yard and did his business.

We decided as it was still raining to have supper first.

Ended up walking about 8:00 p.m. and it was wonderful.

The air was fragrant with fresh rain and roses.

I keep forgetting to mention the roses that line the entrance to the park by my house and in other spots throughout the park and other walkways.

The rain …. oh, they love the rain.

The fragrance …. I closed my eyes and stood still for a few moments breathing in the beautiful fragrance.

Even Alvin took a moment to take it all in …. he likes to get right in there.

I have warned him about the thorns but he is a dog and most times has to figure it out firsthand.

There is no fragrance on this earth like roses.

Seldom can man come close to this amazing smell.

I love roses.

Can you tell?

But these roses.

The “wild” roses not the ones that have been tampered with by man throughout the ages.

Just a plain rose …..

We met a new friend “Rickie” last night on our walk and stopped to see others as they were sitting in their garage.

It was a great walk.

Alvin was over the moon that he did not have to wear the dreaded red rain poncho.

I thought he looked handsome and debonair but he did not.

 

Sometimes you just get to bed later and then want to sleep more.

So am running a tad late here.

 

Wishing my darling cousin L, a very Happy Birthday …..

Wishing my best friend from early childhood and her twin sister a very Happy 62nd Birthday.

I am getting close to that special year as well.

 

Well time to fly here as Mr. Humphrey will be spending the day with Mr. Alvin.

He has a doggie friend at his house.

So as my Alvin and Humphrey get along so well ….

Humphrey will be coming over here.

First time ever.

One cat and one dog for the whole day with the Mama.

I am quite certain that they will be fine.

At least they have two floors in the house ….. space.

 

Happy Thursday.

 

Kind and Respectful.

Even with cats and dogs.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 29th day of July, 2014.

It is starting to lighten up outside ….. each morning it stays darker just a bit longer.

Ah, how I miss those mornings when the sun was up high in the sky before 7 a.m. …..

It has been cooling off at nights so makes sleeping easier.

Always good when you do not have to have the air conditioning on all night.

Alvin sits at the window looking out upon his domain …. or at least the back half.

I think we are all adjusting to the move.

Just a few more things to finish up at the house over the next couple of days and it will be ready for the new owners.

I love having my bedroom window open and listening to the neighbourhood waking up.

In the not to distant distance you can hear trucks and cars passing on the highway that goes around our city.

The odd dog barking to be let into the house.

Folks are likely running about their homes getting ready for the day.

Stay at home Moms preparing for the day ….. crafts and other activities.

Dad’s dressing and ready to leave for work.

Working couples getting everyone ready so kids can be dropped at daycare.

Dogs and cats wanting to go outside.

We are almost ready to leave for work.

I hope that whatever you are doing today whether going to work or staying at home or perhaps travelling to some faraway location …. that you have a smile on your face and contentment in your heart.

Lives are worth living.

Always remember to live your life.

Each and every moment.

For that moment will never pass again.

Happy Tuesday.

Special Hello to: my friend “L” back in Regina ….. miss you my friend.

Always, Carol and Alvin
