Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 6th day of July, 2018.

The sky is partially overcast at this time of the day.

Another HOT one is on the way.

I have windows OPEN at this moment at each end of the house so that the breeze can come into our house and cool the air.

So far so good.

The air feels cooler.

The furnace FAN is on and an electric fan all working together to cool the house for Mr. Alvin.

With the office window open I can hear the humming of the cars and trucks on the nearby highway that encircles our city.

Today is Friday.

Thank goodness for the weekends.

Just seeing the sun making its’ way higher in the morning sky.

 

I am reminded by just how important it is to be surrounded by positive energy.

Work is one of those places that can be negative.

At work I sit and work, I seldom participate in any conversations.

Somedays the negativity washes over me like a COLD shower leaving me feel drained and blue.

If only people would think about what comes out of their mouths, if only.

I am far from perfect and have from time to time SAID the wrong words.

If you work with people please be aware of others.

Be kind and recognize that perhaps others are in the same position as you are OR perhaps worse.

 

I am so grateful that I have a quiet home with Alvin.

He greets me every night and from time to time gets vocal.

But that is okay.

We all have to something to say.

 

Well here it is almost time to leave for work once again.

Grateful today is Friday.

Grateful that the house is cool for Mr. Alvin.

Grateful that I prepared the bags of clothing and odds and ends for DIABETES to pick up today.

Always good to donate.

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….. have a wonderful day.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 9th day of July, 2017.

What a hot day yesterday and tomorrow’s forecast is even warmer.

I am so grateful to my friend and neighbour for lending us an electric fan.

It has made our lives bearable in this heat wave.

Last night Alvin and I went for a walk just after 9:30 p.m.

The sun was going down and was still light out with a breeze.

It was delightful.

This morning, wait for it, GUESS WHAT?

Mr. Alvin slept in until 6:19 a.m.

Yes, he did.

I believe that is the latest he has ever slept in without getting up.

We were in bed at about 11:00 p.m.

He was pooped between the walk and the heat.

The air is cool this morning so after I write this blog – I am going to scoop him up and go for a walk.

Likely later will not be cool enough and I have to work tomorrow.

Forecast for earlier this week is COOLER with rain showers.

It is summer so some heat is to be expected.

Yesterday I switched around the living room.

I like it but it the way that the sofa is takes a bit of getting used to for both sitting on and watching television.

Just a lefty thing, I suppose.

It does look good.

 

Well better get in gear before it gets too hot to walk.

I hope that you are well and if it is HOT where you are – I hope that you have a fan.

Also, before we had the fan ….. I have this little lace fan and used it to fan both of us.

I think that Alvin actually liked it.

He was sure looking.

 

Happy Sunday.

 

Special Hello to: my friends all over the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 8th day of July, 2017.

Another hot day on the way.

Nice to have warm weather but not good for energy levels.

Last night Alvin and I were invited to one of my neighbours for the evening.

We sat outside in their gorgeous back yard.

Alvin ran, jumped, rolled in the grass and barked with delight and a bit of anxiety.

My friend said it was all too much for him.

But after awhile he settled down and we all enjoyed the time together.

We sat on their covered swing which fit me, my friend and Mr. Alvin.

He would jump up (when it was swinging) and we would chat and just relax.

After we were there for awhile – Alvin he jumped up and snuggled next to my friend.

Oh, I loved that ….

There was a beautiful breeze and it was wonderful.

She treated me with lemon pie and lemonade which was delicious and Alvin with carrots.

Alvin drank the whole bottle of water that I had brought with us.

We were talking about the heat and air conditioning and such.

She loaned me a fan which because I have central air – I did not own.

So last night we were comfortable with windows open and the fan blowing.

Isn’t it funny how whenever we need something it has a way of showing up.

Also to note that when we were first up this morning at 4:30 it was raining……

I felt like standing outside in the rain but as I had a nightgown on – decided against it.

Now I wished that I had …..

Well time to get going …. lots to do before it gets too hot.

Thankfully we have a fan to keep us cool.

I have the best friends, I would say.

Have an awesome Saturday.

Always, Carol & Alvin
