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
