Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 26th day of June, 2018.

The sky is overcast with “rain” clouds and the air is considerably cooler than the past week or so.

The house has COOLED to a comfortable temperature, thankfully for Alvin.

We did not even have to run a FAN last night.

Such a good sleep we had.

We opted not or rather I opted not to go with Alvin for a walk this morning.

We walked last night and it was great having two walks in one day.

Tomorrow will be a two walk day.

I do like going in the mornings.

The peace that fills the air.

Birds conversing as only birds can do.

I have the office window open just to provide some extra coolness to the room and can hear the squawking of crows in the near distance along with the hum of traffic

from the road that wraps around the city.

Otherwise it is quiet, no voices, no sirens, now an airplane, now a truck just started.

That has always amazed me at how many people auto start their cars in the morning and let them run for several minutes.  Why?

I understand in the winter but in the SUMMER.

People.

The sky is being to clear from the south.

A gust of wind just caused the trees to flutter.

Almost time to leave for work.

The carpool is back in action this week.

So many colds and allergies rearing up this season.

 

I hope that wherever you are and whatever you are doing that you use good judgment, common sense and KINDNESS.

Can you imagine what this world would be like?

 

Have a great Tuesday.

Special Hello to: all those folks who read books

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 13th day of June, 2018.

Today is the 65th Birthday of my dear friend “P.”

She is a wonderful person and friend.

Alvin and I send our wishes to her for a great day.

Today is a great day to be celebrating a birthday as the sun is shining and there is only a slight breeze.

Happy Birthday to all those celebrating today.

 

So great to wake up to the sunshine and a light breeze.

Those gale force winds reeked havoc with some trees, plants, fences, signs and more.

Last night I took the bus home from work and noted all of the small boxes that scattered one of the walkways along my walk.

Not quite certain why people would feel the need to place small cardboard boxes loosely out in their garbage during gale force winds.

But then again “common sense” seems to be a fleeting thing these days.

So that will give me lots of trash to pick up before we have more rain.

Oh people!!

I was so grateful that we seemed to be intact after those winds.

I checked the birthday girl’s house last night as they are away to celebrate her birthday.

Only some newspaper had blown into their yard and was trapped in between plants and the fence, so I cleaned that up.

A couple of small pieces of tree branches had broke off and a few plants looked a bit wind blown.

No major damage that I could see and was grateful.

Alvin and I enjoyed our walk and our friend left a bag of treats in a water proof bag for Mr. Alvin.

How spoiled is he?

 

Spent some time last night moving flowers back to their spots on the deck.

I left the umbrellas in the garage until later in the week.

No need for them now, anyway.

 

Wow, so today is Wednesday.

Having Monday off – changed the pace of the week.

 

Well almost time to hit the road ….

I hope that you all have an awesome day.

Enjoy the sunshine and I hope that the sun is shining for you.

 

Special Hello to:  Hi Sister ….. glad to hear that your vacation is going well.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 30th day of May, 2017.

WOW, almost June.

Can you believe it?

We are well into summer, I guess.

Not officially ……

 

This morning for some reason ( likely because I was not in bed until almost 10:00 p.m. ), I am tired.

We enjoyed our walk last night but on the way home ran into some people with their large dog off leash in our park last night.

Just on the way home ….. really, people.

They were quite offended/upset I think when we mentioned “Did you know that this is not an off leash park?”

I do not understand people.

They said that their dog was trained but seconds before he had walked through a gate into someone’s yard.

Good training.

I feel for all the dogs caught in the middle of all of this …..

If only people would use some good old fashioned common sense.

 

Well I am running late …… but food for thought ….. common sense ….. leashes ….. dogs.

 

Have an awesome day.

Happy Tuesday.

Windy but to be a hot one today.

 

Special Hello to:  my sister …..

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 2nd day of May, 2016.

Day #2 of May ….. it is a beautiful morning.

The sun is rising and the sky is clear.

Temperature forecasted to be 26 degrees celsius.

Crazy for the first week in May.

Tomorrow they are saying 28 and Wednesday 27.

Sounds like it will be time to turn on the AC for Mr. Alvin.

Today I will just close the blinds to the south and turn off the furnace.

I think it is safe to say that it won’t be “cold” until fall.

 

Question:  When someone asks you questions about someone else – do you answer those questions?

If you know the answer – do you always share?

I was just thinking that even though I may know the answer, if I believe the person being asked about would not give that information, then I will not share.

Common Sense or Common Courtesy or perhaps a bit of both.

I just think sometimes people get too nosy.

Sometimes it is just conversation.

BUT.

There are some things that people like to keep to themselves.

Some folks are just more private than others.

If someone tells me something not to share, I do not know.

Anyway food for thought.

 

I hope that you have an awesome day.

My daughter says Sir Elton continues to heal each day and is doing very well.

They had company on the weekend (friend with a doggie) and he was played out.

But then again he is almost “13” or almost “91” in human years.

Can you believe it?

Alvin is over 49 ….. that is crazy as he still acts like a young dog not a pup but a young one.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you all have an awesome Monday.

Stay cool …..

Special Hello to: my sister ….. HELLO

Always, Carol and Alvin
