Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Today is the day that I am going to see the Aga Khan Garden at the Devonian Gardens with a friend of mine.

So excited.

I can hardly wait to see the flowers, shrubs and trees.

I was just checking my messages and then happened to noticed that I am almost out of storage on my phone.

Not the greatest of timing especially when I plan to take lots of photos today.

The sky is overcast and it was raining overnight.

An umbrella and jacket will accompany me today.

There is some break up in the cloud cover.

I am sorry that Mr. Alvin cannot go along with us.

I think he would enjoy it.

 

Last night I snapped some photos of my flowers.

I just love taking close ups or any shots of my flowers or any flowers for that matter.

The vibrant colours of the flowers.

The odd angles and the softness.

Nature is wonderous.

These photos are of my back garden and flower pots on the deck.

None taken of the front.

There is a breeze as I can see the trees swaying in the distance from my office window.

 

Well time for a shower before we head out for our adventure at the Edmonton Devonian Gardens.

Should be so much fun.

Oh and coffee, as I sip on some of that deep golden nectar.

Alvin is resting on his blue blanket.

 

I did start / begin to place photos on the bulletin boards but have decided that it is going to take a bit of time as I keep changing my mind.

Does not need to be filled overnight.

 

So grateful to be on vacation.

 

Treating others with kindness and respect brings one joy.

 

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 18th day of September, 2016.

Overcast and windy but not raining.

The sky is beginning to clear to the north so hopefully by this afternoon the windy is calm, sunny with cloudy skies for the photo shoot.

I am so excited to be going to the Devonian Gardens, I hear they are beautiful.

Some of the earlier flowers will have gone on but the later ones should be gorgeous.

The colours of the trees and such.

I will take some photos to post ….

So exciting.

I just checked back to my blog from around this date last year and it had been raining as well.

Looks like pretty much the same weather for this weekend.

Alvin and I managed to get our walk in last night before it started to rain.

On our way home we saw one of our neighbours sitting on her doorstep (they had just got home from a walk) so we went to say hello.

Ended up visiting for awhile.

It was nice.

The overhang on her step kept us dry when a couple of times it started to rain (only sprinkled).

I hope that you all had a good weekend.

I am still debating about whether to leave the patio furniture out or not.

I guess the cushions are wet from the rain so it will not happen until they dry.

Will have to consult the blog from last year to see what the upcoming weather was like last year.

I can hear the geese honking as they pass over head.

Still cloudy from the south view (from my office window).

Well I smell coffee in my near future (as soon as I make some).

Grab the laundry from the basement that was hung to dry.

Empty the dishwasher and put away the tupperware that was air drying.

Just a few small things before getting ready for the photo shoot.

So excited for my day trip.

Only wished that Alvin could go but alas he has to stay at home.

Will check and see if my neighbour can pop in to say hi.

Oh well, he will be fine I just do not like to leave him on the weekends for any amount of time.

Fingers crossed that the wind dies down ….. it is very windy right now.

Special Hello to: all those people who are doing something new today.

Always, Carol and Alvin
