Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and welcome to the day before the official first day of fall.

This would be Monday, September 21, 2020.

How are you doing today?

I could not turn off the thoughts last night.

Do you have any idea of what I was thinking?

Well I was all consumed with the photos on my camera and not being able to upload / download from camera to computer.

I did “more carefully” read the notes on my camera/phone as follows:

Upload paused for 3682 items MANAGE STORAGE 

Not Enough iPhone Storage.

So last night I was quickly going through my photos.

The only problem is … I am not 100% sure that they are all downloaded as not initially when I got the phone but more the past few months, I was having some issues

downloading to computer.

I would get the message on my computer that “there were files that would not download.”

They could be the photos that are multiple frames in one.

I have found that if I do not put the mode into portrait it shots live and there can be multiple shots in one photo.

Now I have no idea if this is the problem.

Unfortunately I forgot to ask my daughter, the photographer when she was here on Saturday.

But definitely will be asking her.

So there will be no photos for awhile.

I will keep going through photos each night.

This is what happens when you are lazy and procrastinate.

I should have been going through them as I downloaded them and then deleted the photos from my phone.

Before my computer cannot handle the thousands of photos, I must do the same.

It was far more easy in the old days when we could take a photo, if it turned out, you kept it otherwise you threw it away.

But you know even at that I kept photos that were not perfect.

I guess I have always felt that I was throwing away the person or whatever the subject of the photo was.

One would think that I was a hoarder by those comments.

I guess when it comes to photos I am.

They are precious to me.

But I have to get things straightened out.

So every night for as long as it takes, I will be going through the photos on my phone.

I think it is safe to say duplicates can go.

I think it is safe to say out of focus can go.

I think it is going to take some time.

But that is life.

 

Well time to head on downstairs and start work.

Perhaps some of you can identify with my “photo problem.”

Others will likely giggle and say “Oh my gosh, Carol.”

Whatever you think or feel, I know that I am a work in progress.

 

Be Safe today.

Take Care.

Continue to live with kindness and respect for ALL beings …… animals, trees ……….

We need everything to be in good repair on this planet for us all to survive.

 

Living with kindness and respect.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

No frost, thank goodness.

Beautiful sky this morning.

Great day ahead.

Thought for the day…

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 16th day of October, 2013.

Last night it rained …. seems strange to be raining mid October.

While I was waiting for Alvin to come in from outside I noticed that the moon looked full behind a veil of clouds.

It looked like something you would see on a Halloween show.

Very mysterious.

I so love this time of year.

Last night while it was still light out …. I noticed that one of my other rose bushes had a “red” rose bud.

Usually my roses are done in September or even August but mid October and still blooming and budding.

How glorious.

I did manage to grab some photos but alas the camera is downstairs and I am too “lazy” to run get it and download the proof of these magical roses.

My “Gran” would be tickled pink.

Life never ceases to amaze me …

I never know what to expect.

I hope that you have an exciting day.

Perhaps one of our dreams will come true today.

Wouldn’t that be lovely.

Special Hello to: all those lovers of roses …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012 ….. another gorgeous morning here in the City of Edmonton.

The sun shone yesterday although it was a bit cool but all in all, a gorgeous autumn day.

This past weekend was so beautiful …….  I so love this time of year.

My roses were still blooming last weekend …. the  most prettiest pink in all of the world.

I took some photos and must download them …..

They remind me of my Grandma Stella ….. delicate but so strong.

When everything else was touched by frost they remain untouched.

Thank you for the roses and also for my Grandma Stella.

She taught me so much,  even though sometimes I was irritated by her (there was a 56 year age difference).

She was 56 when I was born in 1957.

I was 16 years old when I came to live with her (as my grandfather had died in a farming accident);  she was 72.

I am so grateful to her for instilling in me manners, love of dance and music and the arts as well as academia.

She was a teacher who loved music.

Thank you Grandma Stella ….. I shall always be appreciative of our time together and what you taught me.

Do you have someone who left an impression on you?

A positive impression …..

Be grateful for those who helped along the way and for those who may not have been a positive influence but imparted “wisdom” that you learned from, all the same.

Thank you, thank you, thank you …… for all those souls who I have met and learned from along my path.

Today is for you.

Celebrate what you have learned, and give back to others …..

I hope that you have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to:  all those Grandmothers out there who are teaching their grandchildren the important things in life …..  🙂

Always, Carol and Alvin
