Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 22nd day of January, 2016.

It is a beautiful glorious morning here in Edmonton.

I turned on some music as I was getting ready and it has made me feel so wide awake and wonderful.

What a great way to start the day with some of your favourite songs playing in the background as you wash your face, comb your hair and slip into your clothes.

 

I have always loved a little bit of everything ….. a variety of music and artists.

Much the way I have lived my life with variety.

Always good to like a bit of everything.

 

I am 58 and I love the “boy band” – One Direction ….. most especially the song “The Story of My Life.”

I am 58 and I love “Disturbed’s” version of “The Sound of Silence.”

I am 58 and I love Andy Grammer’s, Honey I’m Good ….. makes me want to dance.

I am 58 and I love Meghan Trainor and John Legend.

I am 58 and I love Elvis and Gordon Lightfoot.

I am 58 and I love Tina Turner and Aerosmith.

I am 58 and I love Bing Crosby and Alicia Keys.

 

I am 58 and I love Elton John, Johnny Cash, Adele, Celine Dion, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Pharrell Williams, Lady Gaga, Pink, Taylor Swift, Neil Diamond, Rufus Wainwright, Kelly Clarkson, Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, Ed Sheeran, David Bowie, Van Morrison, Vance Joy, Lorde, Sam Smith, Jordan Smith, Bon Jovi, Cher, Madonna and the list goes on.  I love new and old and everything in between.

Mix it up with your music, with your food, with your life.

Try something new and do not be afraid.

If you love Rock try Country.

If you love Pop try Rap.

If you love Rap try Pop.

If you love Alternative try Gospel.

New is good.

 

Well it is almost time to put the finishing touches on before heading out the door to work.

Just listening to Hello by Adele ….. who else…. she has the most amazing voice.

 

Have a great day filled with new things and great adventures.

Happy Friday.

 

Special Hello to: all my music lovers across the planet ….. you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 15th day of January, 2016.

Another round of snow ….

We had the snow globe effect off and on yesterday and overnight.

I love the white fluffy stuff …. easy to shovel and looks so pretty.

Like diamonds shining in the sky …. but laying on the ground.

So beautiful.

Makes me want to lay down and be one with the snow…..

Well maybe …..

Likely at 58 that is not a great idea …. but it is a thought.

Last night after Alvin had his supper and stuff …. we went out onto the deck ….. figured I would do some shovelling.

Once I had the deck shovelled ….. Alvin decided he wanted to play.

Oh, how I wish that I had taken my camera outside and grabbed a quick video of him.

The game is …. I pretend I am a monster ….. I walk with my legs wide apart …. arms in the air and say “GRR GRR ” and so on.

Anyone listening or seeing would be laughing at me for sure …..

He loves it ….. he literally runs in circles and when he goes between the different levels of the section closest to the house and the mid part he does this little hop, skip thing.

OMG, it melts my heart and makes me laugh out loud.

He will do this forever ….. as long as I will …..

I figured after doing this for awhile that would take the place of the walk to the park ….. he definitely got his fresh air and exercise.

He has personality that one …. oh me Alvin …… I love you.

 

I did want to mention and I am certain that everyone has heard of their passings but we lost this past few days:  music genius David Bowie, actor extraordinaire Alan Rickman and Rene Angelil, superb manager to Celine Dion and many others over the years.

We shall miss them all and their creativity.

 

Well almost time to start putting on the finishing touches before I leave to catch the bus to work.

The bus ride is basically one hour and is a wonderful time to reflect and sometimes even catch some extra sleep.

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: all those tea lovers out there ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
