Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, the 2nd day of August, 2016.

Special Happy Anniversary to my nephew “T” and his wife “S” ….. 8 years already married.

Wishing you both a great day and many many more wonderful years together.

It is bright and sunny with a nice breeze.

Perfect for a walk to pick up food for Mr. Alvin.

He is out and we will go for a nice walk there for starters.

Boo hoo, I had planned to get up earlier and go for a 7:00 a.m. walk but I read too late and then feel back asleep on the sofa and had these bizarre dreams.

The kind of dreams that you have after you have eaten too much, you know those ones.

Alvin and I were living with a nice family ….. cannot remember who.

We had decided to move out not sure why.

I got us an apartment and it was downtown. Not sure why.

Then when it was almost time to move, I could not find the address and did not know what the apartment looked like.

But we had to move because I made the rent already.

It was really strange.

It was weird that I would not know where the apartment was or what it looked like ……

All the time was thinking we can always move back.

The stories that our subconscious mind come up with.

Kind of freaky for sure.

Oh well …. it is over now and I do not remember anymore.

This cutie pie is patiently waiting for his Momma.

He is not outside but waiting outside the office door.

I just love this photo.

He loves to sit on the patio furniture and  most especially when I am right beside him.

Yesterday my daughter and Elton came for a visit ….. no hot water at their house so she had a refreshing shower here.

Later in the day I did the SKYPE thing with my sister and great niece.

A lovely day all around.

Okay time to shower quick and get this show on the road.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

Happy vacation to me and perhaps to others at this time.

Maybe you are just finished your vacation.

I hope that you are all having the most amazing summer ever.

Happy Tuesday.

Special Hello to:  my sister …. thanks for the chat last night.

Always, Carol

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 14th day of June, 2016.

It is a bright and sunny morning here in Edmonton on this 14th day of June.

Alvin and I enjoyed our walk last night.

It was so nice out.

 

Cute story:

Last night on my walk from work to the bus I came across this man walking down the street.

Okay, you say, nothing “cute” about that but wait …..

He was sauntering along smoking on his cigarette like this was the most normal thing in the world.

Or perhaps he was just trying to get a rise out of people.

But no matter.

What did I see perched on his shoulder but a pigeon.

Yup, a bird on someone’s shoulder in sort of downtown Edmonton.

Pretty sure it was a pigeon.

It was a medium size one.

I was walking behind him keeping a normal walking distance.

One man passed us and he said Hello and could barely contain the smile.

He almost made it passed the man.

We came to a trash can and the man pulled in and I passed him.

I wanted to turn around but though that might be a bit tacky so I did not.

But I was smiling all of the way to the bus.

I guess you just never know what/who you are going to meet on the way to the bus after work.

 

Well time to get this show once again on the road.

I hope that this little story made you smile as it did for me.

Have a wonderful Tuesday.

 

Special Hello to: all those people who love and respect animals.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 24th day of November, 2015.

It is actually quite a beautiful morning even though we woke up to over a foot of snow.

Last night after work I shovelled the entire deck, the driveway and the front.

So first thing on the agenda this morning before Mr. Alvin could even go outside because quite frankly I would have lost him in the snow.

Fun shovelling at 5:00 a.m.

Thank goodness he is mostly black but he is not super tall and in small places he would have been completely covered.

So I shovelled while he barked in the house ( I shovelled very fast ).

Then he joined me outside.

He likes the snow and ran about even in some places that I had not shovelled at that point.

I knew he was looking for his chewie.

Yes the whitish coloured chew treat ….. I had seen him bury it in the snow bank that I had created last night against the fence on the deck (side that joins to my neighbour).

Fortunately I had a good idea where it was so I shovelled over to it and voile we found it.

So then he would not settle down to do his business so I finally coaxed him to at least “pee.”

Sounds funny …..

Anyway it will take longer with the new boots (you know the tall ones that lace up from Mark’s Work  Warehouse) to get dressed for work.

I would imagine that my walk to the bus will be interesting.

There will be lots of snow to plough through so I am “excited” for the workout.

Mr. Alvin needs to go out again so I will cut this short.

I hope that wherever you are ….. if there is lots of snow ….. take extra time …. whether shovelling …. walking ….. driving.

It took us one hour yesterday to go from downtown to West Edmonton Mall ….normally takes the bus about 20 minutes.

So I was about 1/2 hour getting home last night which was great compared to some people.

The good old bus.

Take care …. be safe out there.

Special Hello to: my friends and family on the prairies ….. it is now WINTER.

Always, Carol and Alvin
