Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 15th day of February, 2017.

Another warm day on the way.

Forecast is for 10+ degrees celsius ….. there is nothing like a couple of weeks of this kind of weather to cheer one up.

Bringing spring just that much closer.

When I look outside it is still dark but by the time I arrive at work the sun is beginning to rise and there is blue sky.

What a welcome sight.

 

Alvin and I had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.

We did not make it out for our regular walk as there is just too much ice and salt on the sidewalks and streets.

If he were a few pounds lighter I may try and carry him over those spots although there are many of them …

So we stayed home.

He had an extra treat or two.

We snuggled …

I told him about my day and he in his own way told me about his.

Our regular evening minus the walk.

Routine is nice.

 

Well mid week once again.

Can you imagine how many Wednesdays have come and gone over our lifetime?

How many times we think about the weekends from Monday to Thursday?

How many dreams we have that make no sense?

How about the ones that we have, that do.

So many thoughts.

So much time.

Behind, now and ahead.

Are we not blessed to be able to enjoy the past, present and future?

I would say so.

I enjoy thinking back over my life on this earth and seeing all of the changes.

I try to live in the present, in the now.

I dream of the future and look forward to it.

 

Well time once again to head out the door for another work day.

Have an awesome Wednesday.

Perhaps a couple more of these 10 degree days and most of the sidewalks will be clear.

Although I did see snow for Friday ….. maybe I was dreaming ….

Happy Wednesday.

 

Special Hello to: all those dreamers …

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 26th day of August, 2016.

Yes, Alvin it really is Friday.

I am sure by now most people are wondering if it really is true.

I was so certain that Wednesday was Thursday so added an extra day to my week.

Maybe not physically but mentally.

After all it is the mental condition that drives everything.

How you feel, if you can feel, what to do or not to do, to be or not to be.

Yes, of course physicality plays a role but the old adage “mind over matter,” holds true forever.

Until we evolve into something totally different it will always be mental over physical.

It is the way that people get through horrible physical tragedy.

Okay perhaps this is getting just a tad serious and it started out just talking about it being Friday.

Man, can I ever stray from the path.

I am always happy for the weekends but not because I do not like my job but because I get to spend more time with Alvin.

He is my sunshine for sure.

Not to leave out my amazing daughter or my great son-in-law or my grand-puppy Elton they are my never ending rainbow.

Speaking of rainbows last night when we were out for a walk we bumped into a lady walking with her dog.

We found out in about ten seconds his name was Noah and he was cute.

An older boy ….. the boys got along ….. Alvin and Noah…..there were a few barks ….. lots of sniffing.

The lady was smitten with Alvin.

She thought he was the cutest …… so I made sure that I gave Noah lots of compliments, fair is fair.

Well we continued to chat and walk.

We ended up walking in the rain …. just a nice rain not downpour.

A rainbow came out.

We both remarked.

After we parted ways and on our direct path to our house we saw the beginning and ending of the rainbow it was crystal clear.

The first one that I have seen all summer that I saw the start and end.

So beautiful..

Oh, I hear the geese honking away.

Well Mr. Alvin needs to go outside and I need to grab my Quinoa salad that I made for our office potluck.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

Happy Friday.

Special Hello to: all my family and friends, you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 5th day of September, 2015.

Today is the day that my friend arrives to visit from Regina.

She is already in the city visiting with another friend.

Lucky gal … lots of friends.

The sky is clear as the rain clouds have moved on.

The sun is shining.

It is a glorious day.

This is going to be ultra short as I have a few preparations yet to complete.

Always last minute things …. it has to be perfect.

I am even going to bake some “Steeped Tea” confetti cupcakes and the house will smell awesome.

Well I had better hit the shower (get dressed – just ironed my jeans and top).

Still have to vacuum and wash all of the floors so that they are freshly cleaned.

Perhaps a bit of last minute dusting ……

Check each room …..

Write up her card to put alongside her little welcome gift that is sitting on her bed.

I am so excited ….. always great to have guests.

Well it is just after 8:30 a.m. and she will be here around noon.

Better fly …. the time will pass quickly.

Alvin is wondering who I am speaking about …..

Soon he will see her ….. Miss P.

YAY ….. it is a great weekend.

Oh, yesterday we had company …. Miss Penny and Sir Elton.

Penny has been under the weather and was doing great yesterday.

We are hoping that she will be better and in our lives for many, many years to come.

All of our babies …. we love them so much.

Okay …. quit babbling I gotta go …. so excited.

Coffee … drink … shower ….. dressed ….. Alvin what? ¬†outside ….. just a minute.

Thank you for reading my blog … I hope that you have an awesome long weekend.

Special Hello to: all those folks who have company on the way to visit …. enjoy.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 11th day of January, 2015.

It is a glorious morning.

The sun is shining brightly ….

The sky is blue with strips of white …..

I am grateful for the sunshine and clear skies.

The temperatures are warming up and that is always welcome.

Well just enjoying a cup of coffee before heading out the door to go to work at the store.

I wonder if West Edmonton Mall will be busy today?

You never know.

I am grateful to have this time at home with me Alvin and the computer.

So nice to write a little something each day ….. most days.

I have been pondering some story ideas as of late ….

Yes, making notes ….

My wish is to someday be a “successful published writer.”

But first you have to actually write a book.

That is the part that I have been working on for most of my life.

I start and have great ideas …

Either life seems to get in the way or I do.

But as I get closer and closer to the “60” mark, I am feeling that I had better get into gear and get it written.

Who knows …. perhaps there are several books in me; that would be nice.

I do love to write …..

I have lots and lots of ideas written down.

I have written poems and possible song lyrics over the years.

Just the “book” has eluded me.

So that is my goal for 2015 ….. to get writing more.

Get the ideas down …

Outline the story ….

GET WRITING …..

Would be nice to be published by age 60.

I hope that you are doing what you love ….

Doing what you are passionate about …..

Please do not let life or yourself get in the way …. just do it.

We have to do those things that we love … right!

Well time to put the finishing touches on getting ready and finish my delicious cup of coffee before heading out to work.

Special Hello to: my friend “I” in Sweden ….. hope life is treating you grand.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day

Sometimes the direction is not clear, ¬†and then all of a sudden you hear something and the light comes on …… the way is more clear and you are ready to go.

I had a stand still point last night, and now this morning, my direction is clear and my focus sharp.

Time to carry on……
