Thought for the day…..

Well here we are at Wednesday – March 21st, 2012.

We are officially in springtime.

I love spring.

The smell, the sounds …..

The whole of it.

I remember when I was a little girl walking in the pasture (field) on the farm, and for as far as I could see it would be a sea of purple ….. crocuses.

They were from what I remember a furry flower, and I guess that helped them from freezing on those cold spring nights.

I truly loved seeing those flowers ….. they marked renewal for me …… a new beginning as I would imagine every spring.

I also remember that the snow would gradually melt and the smell of spring would linger in my senses for weeks.

Water would slowly run from the melting of the snow.

Sometimes on the farm there would be “dirty snow” remaining on the north side of the house until the beginning of July.

Now it seems that spring arrives ….. the temperature rises almost overnight and the snow melts …. almost overnight …

The grass is brown one day and green the next ….. trees bud, blossom and bloom……

Perhaps spring is only in my imagination and boosted a bit by the memory of a small girl.

But it is my memory and I shall treasure it forever.

I hope that you have wonderful memories to draw upon for comfort and entertainment.

Have a happy second day of spring.

Special Hello: to all those wee spring flowers carefully starting to break through the soil and the snow ….

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin ….. ah, my Alvin….. I am so blessed….

Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Friday, February 10th, 2012.

Well, it is the day after Thursday.

How are you doing this fantastic Friday morning?

It is 6:14 a.m. here where I am.

The moon shines brightly and the stars fill the morning sky.

The air is a tad crisp but that is more than okay.

Spring is on the way.

I am so excited to hear the birds sing and fly about my back yard.  Perhaps this spring they will nest in the bird house in my back yard.

To see grass start to turn green and the buds on the trees.

One afternoon when me and Alvin were out walking to meet up with Amanda and the puppies …. we stopped to chat with some folks along the way.

They were visiting from elsewhere in the city and said that their fruit trees had already started to blossom with all of the warm weather.

Between the rabbits starting to change to brown and the trees ….. I wonder if Mother Nature is just confused by all of this global warming and doesn’t know what to do.  Mixed up.

Although I love the warm temperatures ….. it makes me curious about the weather to come.  What will spring be like?

I remember as a kid on the prairies …. spring was spring ….. there was that smell in the air …. ice melted gradually as did the snow ….. crocuses filled the fields …. babies were born…. then summer “hot” and bright ….. then fall …. those gorgeous colours that happened in due course, and then winter…… lots of snow …. cold temperatures and sunshine.

Food for thought.  Lots to think about that is for sure.

Well almost time to finish getting ready for work.

Tomorrow I am working at BBW (Bath & Body Works) as we are having a Fragrance Event just in time for Valentine’s Day and will be working on Sunday.

So this is a seven day work week for me ….. but that is okay.

I actually have tonight off and have plans to go out for coffee with one of my friends.

So I hope that this Friday brings to you much love, joy, abundance and FUN.

Happy Day.

Special Hello to:   all those people born in the springtime!

Always, Carol and Alvin …..
