Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 17th day of April, 2015.

Well there is a quietness over our household that marks us being alone.

My daughter, son-in-law and grand-puppies moved into their brand new house yesterday.

It is going to take awhile for me and Alvin to get used to the stillness.

We will have to make some noise.

When my daughter and son-in-law came to pick up Elton and Penny after the movers were done …. they helped me move my bed back into the master bedroom.

It seemed so strange but yet so familiar to be back in that room.

Alvin hopped right up on the bed but then took a long time to settle down.

I think he could smell Elton and Penny’s scent left behind in the room.

Even this morning I know that he misses most especially Miss Penny.

They got to be such good buddies over the past months.

So this weekend I am going to give myself a break and simply get used to being alone in the house.

Do some laundry ….. do a bit of cleaning but the most of the weekend I will spend with Alvin …… giving him extra attention.

WOW, even in the office without the bed it echoes.

Funny how a piece of furniture can make such a difference.

Well I need a shower and then to get on with this day.

Funny now without the kids here and no second job it seems unbearably quiet …. I know that we will get back into our routine and that will be sooner than later for sure as it is back to work at the office on Monday.

I am grateful for all of my many blessings.

To have my own home after almost three decades of living in an apartment.

I am grateful to be in great health.

I am grateful to be surrounded by good neighbours and friends.

So here we go, me and Alvin on another adventure.

With the sun shining and a hefty breeze we will start this new chapter.

I thank you for staying with us.

Have an awesome Friday.

Special Hello to: ¬†family and friends …. all those folks beginning a new chapter in their lives.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 8th day of March, 2015.

Wow, what a glorious “spring” morning.

The sun is shining down upon this Earth spreading warmth and light.

The air feels crisp and clean.

Spring is on the way.

How I love spring.

I love the growth.

I love the new life.

I love the smells.

I love the feeling.

I love the early sunrise.

Oh how I love spring.

You just cannot beat the feeling of spring.

When I was young the crocuses would cover the fields in a blanket of fuzzy purple wonder.

I remember the baby calves and pigs being born.

Oh how beautiful those babies were ….. some brown and some pink.

So on this Sunday I look to the feeling of renewal …..

Feeling reborn again.

Ready to face the next chapter of my life.

Decisions to be made …. maybe yes …. maybe no.

I just wish that sometimes my life could be easier….

Happy Sunday everyone.

Special Hello to: my fellow over 55 club ….. with our knowledge, wisdom and work ethics we definitely rock ….

Always, Carol and Alvin
