Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 9th day of May, 2015.

This morning is bright and sunny and breezy.

Three mornings ago that was not the case.  Just got my photos downloaded, so thought I would share.

Makes me so grateful that the snow came at this time of year when the sun is higher in the sky, and feels so much warmer …. melts that snow so fast.  We needed the moisture so we, I am most happy.

In photos over the course of the day on Wednesday, May 6th – starting at 5:00 a.m. until I arrived at home just after 5:00 p.m.

I could not believe how much wet heavy snow had accumulated over the course of the day.

Wished that I would have taken a photo of the trees…… green new leaves peeking out from a cover of snow.

The snow was so heavy it felt like lifting a load of bricks.

It was so much fun shovelling. AS you can tell I could only manage a small amount of shovelling on the deck.

Poor Mr. Alvin did not know what to do.  Thank goodness he is great at jumping.

The photos above with the ice cream truck were the next day.  Not much snow left.  I thought it was so funny that we had snow on the ground when I heard that magical music that could only be the ice cream truck.  I was shocked.  They only have a short season to earn some money so I totally understood.

Happy Saturday to everyone.

Now better get to things …….

Special Hello to: all my friends and family …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 2nd day of September, 2013.

Another breathtakingly gorgeous morning here in Edmonton.

I love listening to music when I am getting ready for work on the weekends.

During the week it seems I don’t think of it but on the weekends before working at the store.

It has become a ritual ….. listening to my favourite “current” songs.

I love “PayPhone” by Maroon 5 and also “Daylight”,  also “Try” by Pink, “Set Fire to the Rain” and “Someone Like You” by Adele and …..

Music always seems to energize me and get me in a great feeling mood.

I love the words and also the melody.

Sometimes I pick Alvin up and dance with him….

Sometimes he is okay with it other times I think he suffers in relative silence likely “thinking “Oh Momma” …..

But that is it for today ….. listen to some music and grab a partner and dance or just kick up your heels on your own.

I hope that you have a great great Monday ….. Happy Labour Day.

I also like Ed Sheeran, Mumford & Son, Terry McDermott, Cee Lo Green and the Lumineers (they are on my downloaded list that I listen to often).

Special Hello to: music lovers …..

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
