Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 3rd day of July, 2015.

Another hot today ….. methinks.

Alvin and I were up to stay at 6:00 a.m.

Had a nice walk and there was a bit of a cool breeze.

The clouds keep rolling in and then the sun shines.

We might have a shower at some point.

Well I am just about ready to leave the house for an appointment.

Sure hope to get home before it gets too hot ….. riding the bus when it is hot can sometimes be HOT.

I hope that you have an awesome 3rd day of July.

Mr. Alvin is enjoying the cool air in our house.

We are blessed.

Well I had better get going ….. have to transfer and don’t want to miss my bus.

Happy Friday.

Special Hello to:  all my fellow bloggers ….. keep up the good work.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 16th day of June, 2015.

Bright sunny morning here in Edmonton.

Spent the evening outside last night with Mr. Alvin ….. first we went for a walk ….. then we, well me … cut the front lawn and raked, pulled some dandelions, watered the flowers front and back, and lawn and visited with neighbours who happened by.

It was absolutely gorgeous out last night.

Unplanned evening but great.

I am so grateful to live in this house with me Alvin in this city and in this country.

We are so blessed.

Well this morning we were up ultra early and then hit the sofa for some zzz’s so the Momma is a bit on the tired side.

Almost time to hit the trail to catch the bus to go to work.

I hope that you all are having an amazing day thus far.

OMG, I almost jumped …. out of the blue … Alvin jumped up quick ….. it would seem that there is a fly in the house …. likely because I had the back door open most of the evening while we were outside.  In the beginning Alvin was in the back yard and I wanted him to be able to come in and see me out front.

Poor little fly does not stand a chance with Mr. Alvin on guard.

Take care ….. be kind to each other.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those tea drinkers out there ….. I just tried the best tea ever …… Roobios (not sure of the spelling) but it had coffee in it …. from Steeped Tea,so yummy.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 22nd day of May, 2015.

What a glorious morning …. I am happy that today is Friday.

The sun is shining and there is a slight breeze.

Happiness is in the air.

I had the cutest conversation with Mr. Alvin this morning.

I was asking him what he was going to be doing on this wonderful Friday.

I asked him if he would be doing crafts, washing windows or perhaps vacuuming?

He turned his head from side to side as if he to say “what are you talking about?”

It was so cute …. made me giggle.

Giggling is usually not something I am doing at 5:30 in the morning.

So I guess he will be keeping tabs on the neighbourhood and have naps.

That is okay by me.

Well running late ….. so better hoof it.

I hope that you have an awesome Friday ….

Weekend ….. time for yard work.

I am having the furnace cleaned tomorrow. …. should be fun.

Special Hello to: all those Moms and Dads of four-legged guys and gals out there…. love the conversations.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Evening and Welcome to Monday the 23rd day of March, 2015.

Sorry …. what a morning …..

I decided to go back to sleep for a few extra minutes.

Then my kids both were sick so had to make other arrangements for the ride to work.

My daughter said I could take the car but I decided not today.

So I called my neighbour.

We both work downtown.

The first time the call went to voicemail.

The second time she answered and said she had been running late and had wanted to be gone already ….

Lucky for me I had ten minutes before she was going to leave so I brushed my teeth, put on my eyebrows, got dressed, rushed downstairs, grabbed my lunch, grabbed my boots, purse, bag and coat … locked the door and was gone (in less than ten minutes).  WHEW.

I got to work by 6:50 a.m.

Anyway … I felt bad as I was not able to write my morning blog.

“Forgive me” …….

After rushing …. sometimes that can jinx your day but I actually had a very productive awesome day.

When I got home I made a quick trip to the grocery store.

NOTE TO SELF:  EAT SOMETHING BEFORE YOU GO GROCERY SHOPPING.

Argh …. spent way too much ….. reminder for next time.

My veggie burger is in the oven so I thought this would be the perfect time to send you all a little note.

Better late than never, I suppose.

Also, talk about mucky out there ….. melting snow …… mud ….. dirt …..gravel…..

I sure hope that you guys had an awesome day.

Well time to go and get the trimming ready for my burger ….. the bun, avocado, mustard, cheese …. my mouth is watering.

Have a great evening.

Special Hello to: my new friend “Lisa” …. thank you so much for reading my blog.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 19th day of December, 2014.

OMG, only a few more sleeps until the big day.

I am so excited …..

I love Christmas.

Have I mentioned that before…..

Well I really really do.

Last night after work I was fortunate to catch an earlier bus and got home sooner.

So because I was home earlier I had a cup of tea and watched one of my shows…

Of course, then I was up later and didn’t want to get up so easily this morning.

Now it is time to go…

Ride is ready.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Special Hello to: YOU

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 19th day of April, 2014.

Earlier this morning when Alvin and I first got up (he is an early bird).

When Alvin was outside doing this morning ritual; I sat in the chair in the kitchen by the window and this is what I saw.

It appeared to be a reflection of the moon.

I had the kitchen light on as you will see in the second photo.

But it was so cool.

Unfortunately my little camera could not zoom enough to get a proper photo but still this looked so amazing.

Something great to see so early in the morning.

Early morning sky

Early morning sky – my kitchen light is in the forefront

The moon all alone ….. one gorgeous beacon of light.

Now in the first photo you may think it was the reflection of the light in the kitchen but it was not.

Anyway that was the perfect way to start my long weekend.

Doing laundry and lots of fun stuff today ….. Alvin is getting a hair cut and Momma gets to colour her hair.

I hope that you all have an amazing weekend.

Happy Easter Everyone …..

Special Hello to: all those photographers out there and all of the crazy beautiful photos you snap.

Always, Carol and Alvin
