Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 3rd day of May, 2016.

Another beautiful morning.

The air is cool and refreshing.

I left our upstairs windows open last night as to capture that coolness in the house.

We have central air conditioning but there is nothing like fresh cool night air to make you feel good.

For some reason I now have a “cold sore” and it feels like my mouth is out to there.

Oh well ….. no complaining now.

Last night on our walk we ran into old friends.

Some we only see in the summer on walks.

One of them was our friend Shaun and his dog Angus.

Angus is now deaf, partially blind but he certainly walks with fine style and enjoyed himself.

Angus is 15, I believe.

Another dog we saw again is blind but from a degenerative disease but she walked like she could see.

So amazing these babies.

We were glad to see everyone and make new friends.

Someone asked Alvin’s age last night on our walk and was surprised he is 7 ….. he acts so much younger.

I guess there is something to be said for acting younger than your age.

To look and act younger keeps you around longer, I suspect.

Well here we go again ….. almost time to leave.

This morning we, I had to hit the sofa for some extra zzz’s …. not sure why.

We should have gone for a walk but we will try for tomorrow.

I am thinking with this hot weather that we will walk in the morning when it is cooler.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Remember “acting” seems to be a good thing.

Perhaps the art of play is not just an illusion.

Am I making sense??


Special Hello to: my sister …. SKYPE Sunday, perhaps?  I am excited to hear about your trip to Hawaii.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 22nd day of March, 2016.

Well we have SNOW and more SNOW …..

A SPRING snow storm.

I shovelled when I got home from work and two hours later it was covered again.

The temperatures remain warm which is nice.

I know that it will not last.

Funny how we can go from almost no snow to a thick blanket.

Well that is MARCH.

March is truly an unpredictable month for sure.


Alvin had Elton for company yesterday.

Our dear Elton is pretty much deaf except for loud whistles.

I was so warmed that Alvin is not so competitive with him.

He let Elton take the lead and when I was trying to get Elton to go outside he went out first and looked at Elton.

It was as if to say “Come on buddy, time to go outside.”

So cute.

I love having Elton visit.

Good for both our boys.


It is the time for renewal ….

Time to think of what to plant.

Time to think about cleaning out your closets.

Time to do some spring cleaning.

Once the snow melts and the temperatures warm …. time to get some serious stuff done.

I noticed that the fans needs to be cleaned / dusted again.

Time to get up on that step ladder.

One way to get up in the world…… or not.

But it is always good to go through your things and give/toss/recycle what is not needed/worn.

We all have so many things that truly are not required ….. good to share.

It has been almost one year since I really went through my closets so it is time.


One of my friend’s has been spending the odd night with us as she is staying in Edmonton while her grandson is in the Children’s Hospital.

It is nice to have the company and to reconnect with an old friend ….. we have know each other for near 40 years.


It was funny Alvin was pacing back and forth by her bedroom door this morning and was waiting for her to open the door with tail just a wagging.

So cute.


Well almost time to finish getting ready for work.

My friend will drop me at the bus so YAY me I don’t have to walk through the snow.

But just in case on Sunday I did retrieve my winter boots from the basement closet.

They forecasted snow and I figured that I may need them one last time.

So I will be wearing my winter boots.

Better not to wreck my shoes.


I hope that you have an amazing Tuesday.

Maybe make a snow angel if you live in this white blanketed area.


Special Hello to: YOU as you are so special.

Always, Carol and Alvin
