Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 26th day of September, 2017.

Today is the Birthday of my Son-In-Law “S” ….. Happy Birthday Buddy.

He keeps us all on our toes, constantly challenging us to be better.

He has a good heart and is very intelligent.

A great combination.

Happy Birthday Buddy ….. Alvin and I wish you a great day.

 

Well back to work today.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day off yesterday.

Ended up cleaning and putting away most of the deck furniture and flowers pots.

Only a couple of things remain.

On our walk in the later afternoon we saw, actually Alvin saw our friend “P” working in your yard.

He can spot her a mile away.

What a guy.

We had a visit and she gave me  some plants.

So upon our return home ….. I again rearranged my back flower bed.

I think that I now have a plan.

Or at least for now.

 

Our weather is incredibly nice.

Bright sunshine …. blue skies ….. warm temperatures.

Of course not near the temps as in eastern Canada.

In parts of Ontario and Quebec the temperatures have exceeded 30 degrees celsius which is way too hot for this time of year.

Breaking all sorts of records.

I like our temperatures …. low 20’s.

Perfection.

 

Well time to put the finishing touches on before leaving for work.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: the Birthday Boy …… Love Mom & Alvin

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 5th day of September, 2017.

The sun is just starting to rise at about 6:20 a.m.

What a difference from a few weeks ago when it was light before 5:00 a.m.

The days are noticeably shorter now as we ease into autumn or fall, the last quarter of the year 2017.

The air is much cooler in the morning and cools off in the evening as well.

Although this week is to be in the mid to high 20’s …… on the warm side.

Last night was perfect when Alvin and I went for a walk and to water our friend’s flowers.

I am wishing/hoping/praying that her flowers remain as beautiful this Friday as they were last night.

I love flowers and spending the time in her yard with Alvin ….. is priceless.

AS I gaze out of my office window I am in awe of the skyline.

The trees reach up in line against the pale orange and blues of the sunrise.

What a gorgeous time of day.

I shall definitely enjoy my walk to the bus this morning.

Back to work ….. we had a wonderful weekend.

We walked, cleaned and watered.

I hope that you all enjoyed your weekend as well.

 

Happy Tuesday Everyone.

 

Special Hello to: To all the folks in the southern United States as you come out of the other side of Hurricane Harvey ….. you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Keep safe, warm and strong.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 30th day of September, 2016.

Wow, another month come and almost gone.

Well September you were pretty nice.

Thank you.

Last night Alvin and I put away the deck furniture, cleaned out most of the flower bed, put away odds and ends, mowed the grass and covered the air

conditioner in preparation of the following season.

Alvin enjoying running in circles from one end of the deck to the other and making the cutest jumps to the upper level of the deck.

He was pooped after that …..

Yesterday I posted the following about something happening in Canada.

After I wrote this which is early between 6:00 – 6:30 a.m. in the morning, I thought of more that I could and would like to say on this topic.

How is it that we human beings can murder another human being or even many and go to prison.

We are not put to death (most times).

In prison they are not denied food or shelter.

They can receive an education even earning a degree if they so desire.

We give them a chance to  rehabilitate themselves.

So why is it that when our four legged companions injure or cause death to a human, the punishment is automatically death.

There is no discussion.

No thinking about it.

Just do it.

They are animals after all.

They do not feel anything or reason and are not human.

I have heard those words so many times and it makes me so mad.

What the hell is wrong with us.  (excuse the language but it is necessary).

Are we so blind and cruel that we cannot do something to change this?

I am so sad by all of this……

Sometimes where do I go from here.

Every day I am shamed by the acts of my fellow human beings.

I am not saying that I am perfect because I am not.

Just wishing we were overly compassionate instead of the other way.

Well it is time for me to head out to catch the bus.

Have a good Friday.

Special Hello to: all those folks who work tirelessly to help all living creatures ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
