Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 13th day of February, 2019.

Well another COLD morning out there.

You can smell the COLD, that sharpness that burns the nose when you breathe in.

A reminder to us all to ensure that our babies, our children, our pets and ourselves are dressed appropriately for this weather.

 

So on this day …. how about some photos….

They always make me feel better …..

We are in a cold snap that is breaking 20 + years records…..

So here we go….

Jewellery made by me for a wedding a few years ago.

 

Gotta love the colours the reflection made.

Alvin loves flowers.

Finding a place to showcase this piece…

Summer of 2009, my first summer here in Edmonton

Love blue skies.

Deck complete, what a beautiful sight. Now for the flowers…. FUN. 2010

Cookies, anyone?

More cards …..

This is what happens when you make things!!

More Easter Crafts

Soaking up the sun ….

Christmas Sugar Cookies, anyone ….

Biscotti, how I love thee.

Coffee, KONO coffee from Hawaii.

So good.

I hope that you enjoyed a break from the everyday ….

Flowers, puppies, nature, cookies, books and bling ….

Doesn’t get better than that.

 

Happy Wednesday Everyone.

Stay warm….

 

Special Hello to: my friends and family all over the world.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 10th day of January, 2018.

Brr, it is a COLD one here in Edmonton and most part of the WESTERN CANADIAN PROVINCES.

We seem to be having one week with warm temperatures and then the next bitterly COLD ones.

I am grateful for the break in between this COLD SNAP.

It is funny, no I mean strange that when it is cold all you think about is eating and sleeping.

Bundled up, warm sweater, blankets and next to your significant other or in my case snuggling with Alvin.

He does generate a lot of heat.

On these cold mornings it is hard for him to go outside.

I always wait right by the door to let him back into the house the moment that he is done his business.

There is no taking your time on these mornings and days.

I feel bad for him.

Just keeping warm.

I will be laying layers onto my regular warm clothing today.

Bringing out the big boots.

I just want to sleep …… snuggle up with Alvin under a warm blanket and sleep.

That is the cold weather talking.

Argh, have to leave the house.

Oh well, that is life.

My choice.

To all those folks living in a “deep freeze” please be aware of how you are dressed, your children are dressed, and DO NOT LEAVE your PETS outside.

Make sure as in the heat you keep hydrated.

Well almost time to go and start the layering process.

Need to do this when you are walking and catching a bus.

 

Happy Wednesday.

The next few days are all about the weather and keeping warm.

Take care.

Be safe.

If you are driving – make sure that you have emergency items in your vehicle.

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends all over the world.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 7th day of March, 2017.

Well the forecast is for a cold snap.

We are well below seasonal temperatures for March.

Not great news but it is March and one month closer to spring.

Officially spring in a couple of weeks or so.

 

This morning while getting ready for work I was thinking about “dreams.”

Not the dreams you have while you are sleeping but the ones you have when you are young for your future.

I always wanted to be a nurse, published writer, mother to four children (two boys and two girls) and to be married.

The white picket fence with the beautiful two- storey house – the dream.

I could see us all going on family vacations.

I could see my children further their education, get married and have babies.

I could see “us” being retired and living the life of riley.

So what went wrong or what changed.

Nothing is ever really wrong – we just take a different path.

One thing changes and everything changes.

 

So I am not a nurse, I do write a bit, I am a mother to one amazing daughter and one puppy named Alvin and I am single.

My daughter did further her education and went for her dream at that time (which I am grateful for), she is married and I have grand-pups.

Perhaps that is where the number four came from as they have had/have two boys and two girls.

I do not have a white picket fence but my house is a beautiful two-storey half duplex.

There has been the occasional family vacation.

Retirement is a long way off.

Different direction – different dreams.

 

The reality is you never know what life will bring to you.

Or where life will take you.

 

Even if you are super positive and live a life of doing kind and wonderful things the reality is you never know.

All you can do is live your life and work towards those dreams/goals.

Live each moment and day to the best.

 

Have a wonderful Tuesday.

Special Hello to: my daughter who teaches me things daily.

Always, Carol and Alvin
