Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 8th day of July, 2017.

Another hot day on the way.

Nice to have warm weather but not good for energy levels.

Last night Alvin and I were invited to one of my neighbours for the evening.

We sat outside in their gorgeous back yard.

Alvin ran, jumped, rolled in the grass and barked with delight and a bit of anxiety.

My friend said it was all too much for him.

But after awhile he settled down and we all enjoyed the time together.

We sat on their covered swing which fit me, my friend and Mr. Alvin.

He would jump up (when it was swinging) and we would chat and just relax.

After we were there for awhile – Alvin he jumped up and snuggled next to my friend.

Oh, I loved that ….

There was a beautiful breeze and it was wonderful.

She treated me with lemon pie and lemonade which was delicious and Alvin with carrots.

Alvin drank the whole bottle of water that I had brought with us.

We were talking about the heat and air conditioning and such.

She loaned me a fan which because I have central air – I did not own.

So last night we were comfortable with windows open and the fan blowing.

Isn’t it funny how whenever we need something it has a way of showing up.

Also to note that when we were first up this morning at 4:30 it was raining……

I felt like standing outside in the rain but as I had a nightgown on – decided against it.

Now I wished that I had …..

Well time to get going …. lots to do before it gets too hot.

Thankfully we have a fan to keep us cool.

I have the best friends, I would say.

Have an awesome Saturday.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 27th day of June, 2015.

It is already very warm …. bordering on hot already and not quite 10:00 a.m.

Alvin and I left for a walk about 9:30 a.m. and cut it short because it was already warmer than the weather channel is posting at this time.

Back home closed the windows and turned on the air conditioning.

I am so so grateful to have central air.

It definitely ranks in my top ten of things I hold in high gratitude.

Tomorrow is to be 36 with the humidity.

At the moment there is a slight breeze and it bright clear sunny skies.

Well today is going to be a quiet day.

I have a few things that have to be done and other than that …. quiet …..

Regardless of a/c the heat just does me in …..

Poor Mr. Alvin needs a hair cut …. top of my list when I have a few days off from work after Canada Day next week.

Today I am wishing that wherever you are that you are not too hot or not too cold.

That you are safe from others and the elements.

That you have enough to eat.

That you are surrounded by love and laughter.

That you have and show respect for yourself and for others.

Happy Happy Saturday.

I am also very grateful to be visiting with some of my family tomorrow.

YAY.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. only one more sleep.  I hope that Canmore is not too hot today.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Monday Morning and welcome to July 9th, 2012.

WOW, July 9th, and summer is here in full force.

The forecast for this week in Edmonton is in the 30’s …. HOT.  Factor in the humidity and today is supposed to be closer to 40.

Now that is hot for here.

Thank goodness I have central air.  My grand-puppies will join Mr. Alvin for the day and likely for the week so that they can keep cool.

All is well here in Edmonton.

The lawn mowing fairy or angel came to my place yesterday while I was at my part-time job (Bath & Body Works).

So it was so great to come home to find the grass out front mowed.  Thank you neighbour.

I am very grateful for my neighbours.

The other one brought over some treats before I left for work yesterday…. some fresh herbs and strawberries from her garden and some homemade mini cheesecakes….. HEAVEN.

I had one of the cheesecakes for dessert last night and it was dreamy.

Alvin spent the day with his sister and family.

I am so blessed.  But enough about me.

I hope that you all had a great weekend and are ready to get back to the normalcy of the week.

Did you have a “TO DO” list?  How did you do?

I usually have a list and make sure to put the two most important chores at the top.

If you get them done ….. then the rest can always wait.

Well today is my early day to start work so have to finish getting ready.

I hope that you have a great day and enjoy the weather.

Special Hello: to all those great neighbours …… SALUTE…… CHEERS …. YOU ROCK.

Always, Carol and Alvin
