Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 23rd day of January, 2015.

This morning I realized that I am tilting my head to see out of my progressives when I am looking at the computer screen.

I should not be doing this …..

Guess I will need to go back and see EYE DOC.

Or perhaps move my glasses down a bit … okay that seems to have worked.

Our weather here in Edmonton seems to be getting warmer and warmer.

Yesterday morning when we left for work it was 6 degrees celsius and over 8 throughout the day.

Same forecasted for today.

Is it spring?

Likely not.

Well time to leave …. the “bus” is ready early.

I hope that you have a great day.

Always take time to stop and “smell the roses” so to speak.

Have a great Friday everyone.

Special Hello to: all my fellow bloggers ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 17th day of February, 2014.

WOW – how did we get here?

One day at a time, I suspect.

It is beautiful here in Edmonton – the sun is shining brightly.

The sun always makes me feel good – no matter what the day may bring my way.

Today is a work day at the store – that is okay.

I was just reading some of my fellow bloggers and I am reminded that there is a lot of good people in the world.

I wished that every story we read was good and kind and well.

I love when people rescue animals or other people.

What a wonderful world this would be if we all just did that – rescued each other – every living people.

Treat every living being on this planet with kindness and respect.

You do not have to love every person or every animal but the very least you  should do is to treat them with kindness and respect.

So try it today …. go out and be kind and respectful.

I will tell you this …..

When you treat the world with kindness and respect – it comes back to you in return.

I wish you all a very great day.

Some of the Canadian provinces celebrate this day as “FAMILY DAY.”

It is a statutory holiday in some provinces and it is here in Alberta.

Happy Family Day …..

Special Hello to:  I am going to see if I can get hold of my sister to SKYPE …. yahoo.

Always and Forever, Carol and her Alvin.

Thought for the day….

Good Afternoon almost Evening and well it has been Monday the 10th day of February, 2010.

I stayed home today as I woke up not feeling well and decided better not to share “the wealth.”

I am happy to say that after several hours of sleep and snuggling with my Al.

Nothing like snuggling with your favourite “puppy” to make one feel better.

Are you a snuggler?

Are you a hugger?

I think that – that closeness is good for the mind, body and soul.

So on this unusual Monday ….. being at home….. my mind, body and soul are healed.

If you are feeling less than perfection “ask for a hug” ….. “snuggle with a loved one” and voila you will feel so much better.

Have a great evening my friends.

Will be back tomorrow ….. insight …. who knows but I will try.

Special Hello to: my fellow bloggers.

Always, Carol and Alvin


Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 31st and last day of January, 2014.

So incredible …. February tomorrow.

Windy morning here in Edmonton with some light snow falling covering the ground …. covering the ice.

So everyone in this area be careful when walking and driving.

To all my fellow bloggers and readers to the south of us, in the U.S. I hope that you are safe and warm.

Crazy weather.

I am grateful that me and Alvin are safe and warm in our house.

Well today I am marking as the beginning of new and great things to come.

Today is the archway …. the opening ….. the gateway ….

I can feel it in my bones …. does that sound strange?

Sometimes you just know.

I know that wonderful things are about to happen for me.

I also know and am grateful to lead a pretty wonderful and blessed life as it stands at this very minute.

But hey more wonderful – nothing wrong with that ….

So on this last day of January 2014 – I hope it marks something crazy wonderful for you, as well.

May your dreams become reality and your reality feel like a dream.

Take care all ….

Special Hello to: everyone living in stormy weather …. keep safe and warm …. curl up and read a book or play with your dog …. 🙂

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday, the 28th day of July, 2013.

Wow, another month at it’s peak…..

You can always tell when it nears the end of July.

The sun comes up a bit later and the mornings are cooler.

This morning Alvin and I enjoyed a beautiful walk.

The beautiful cool breeze surrounds us with a bright blue sunny almost cloudless sky.  There were so many others out with their little buddies ….. it was like old home week.

So much fun.

I hope that you have a great Sunday …. remember to relax and enjoy.

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


Beautiful Sky ….. the clouds were alive.

The sky.....

The sky…..

Always, Carol and Alvin


I haven’t figured out the logistics of doing this so bear with me.  But here we go…..


FIRST LINE …..July 25, 2013

As we walk along the water’s edge the coolness leaves my skin with goose bumps and prickles, as if there is someone behind me.

July 26, 2013

Alvin pulls on his leash and brings me back, the fragrance of freshly cut grass fills my nostrils; my heart beat quickens and I am unable to shake the feeling.

July 28, 2013

The sky is overcast with a hint of sunrise peeking through and the leaves of the trees rustle in the breeze, and I think how did I get here? 


Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday, May 2nd, 2013.

It is a beautiful morning here in Edmonton.

There are dark blue clouds hanging down and bright blue ones above.

So pretty.


This is my “750th” BLOG ….. WOW, I never thought that I would reach that number.

I love to write, and this is such a great way to express your thoughts and to share them.

I am so grateful to all those people who take the time out of their day to read my words.

It truly means so much.

So on this mini anniversary I would like to leave you with this thought:




Special Hello: to all my fellow bloggers – you rock – I love reading your blogs.


Always, Carol and Alvin
