Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 15th day of January, 2017.

The sky is mottled with dark blue clouds but happily you can see clear blue sunny peering out.

Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous ….. warm temperatures and no wind.

Alvin and I thoroughly enjoyed our walk after lunch.

We bumped into one of our friends and while we visited the pups played.

Alvin and Willow played hard …. Willow is about one year old and full of energy.

Willow is a girl (are you surprised).

He loves the girls.

That is for sure.

They had such a good time.

Alvin was certainly pooped after a good play.

I was glad that we happened upon them.

Thank you “K” and Willow.

So we are hoping that the weather today will be just enjoyable.

We are most happy for this change in the weather.

We both needed some fresh air and exercise.

I do get a bit on my walks to and from the bus but nothing is more enjoyable than a walk with a friend.

Chatting along the way.

He may not speak back in words that I can totally understand but he usually manages to make me understand in his Alvin way.

I love our walks.

So on this Sunday …… if you are experiencing a break in the winter deep freeze …. go outside.

Get some fresh air … and the exercise is a great bonus.

Happy Sunday Everyone.

Special Hello to: You …… you are a rockstar…..always keep that in mind.  Never forget how special you are.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 11th day of January, 2017.

Another day in the deep freeze but a reprieve is on the way.

I heard that the weekend and next week are supposed to be nice.

That would be great.

Finally we have had some sunshine.

It seems as though most of this winter has been overcast / foggy.

Even though it is cold – I was grateful to see the sun yesterday.

 

Not sure what happened last night but I was feeling out of sorts just after supper.

Dizzy to begin with so we headed for bed before 8:00 p.m.

Then went through nausea and the other end.

Alvin just happened to have a “chewie” (which was my mistake as I was not paying 100% attention).

Once he has it there is not much chance of taking it away from him.

So he chewed and chewed.

He wanted to go outside twice before 11:00 p.m., and all the while I am feeling dizzy.

Going up and down the stairs was not fun, I will say.

Happy to report that I am feeling great this morning.

So grateful that it only lasted a short while.

There are so many colds and flus going around …..

I want to stay in good health.

 

Well almost time to get this show on the road.

No road for this girl today.

Bundle up and go.

Keep warm – stay safe.

 

Note to self: treats are not to be around before bed.  (applies to dogs and children)

 

Have a happy Wednesday.

 

Special Hello to: all my fellow bloggers.

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 7th day of December, 2016.

This is Day Three of the Big Deep Freeze and only 1  1/2 weeks to go ( not 100% certain about that but that is what they forecasted a couple of days ago).

One never seems to warm up when it is almost – 30 degrees celsius with the windchill.

Any wind just seems to pierce through your layers and ping against your skin.

But I am not complaining – just stating the facts.

We, I am so grateful for a beautiful November.

We did have some in October actually quite a lot and rain.

What a mix.

 

Last night when we were taking a few minutes watching a show before bed.

Alvin rested his head on my lap.

I was so touched.

He never does that …..

He looked so darn cute.

 

Well here it is time to start bundling up for the walk to the bus in the deep freeze.

Not so bad if you have good layers on ……

This morning I am pulling out the big guns …. big warms boots, big mitts … the ones that are good for these temperatures.

I am prepared.

 

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Talk to you later.

Special Hello to: my sister …. SKYPE soon….. Sunday?

Always, Carol and Alvin
