Thought for the day….

Good Morning Everyone ….. today is Tuesday, July 17th, 2012.

Today marks the one year wedding anniversary of my neighbours and good friends, Sherie and Todd.

I hope that they have a wonderful day.


YAY.  After several days of cloudy skies and RAIN, it is wonderful to see the sun shine.

All of the plants, trees, grass and flowers are excited to have the sun shine after all of the rain.

I was in the process of downloading some photos that I snapped last night of a couple of the lakes that are close by my home but alas I could not get them downloaded in time.

As you see I had over 400 photos to download (hadn’t realize there were so many) …. actually forgot that the memory card is the same one that the kids used with my camera when they were in San Diego.

So hence all of the photos.  Anyway, I am close …. will download them this evening and post some tomorrow on my blog ….. it is truly incredible how much water and how high it is ….. crazy.

Anyway, I hope that everyone has a truly wonderful, amazing, crazy good/great day.

Alvin and I sure enjoyed our walk around part of the lake last night even though we had to go up to the sidewalk at the top (you will see what I mean when I post the photos).

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you all.  Guess what I saw on our way home last night …… me and Mr. Alvin were just walking by my friend Gillian’s house when I saw these huge DRAGONFLIES.

They were the size of a small bird …. I would say close to a hummingbird and at first I saw one, then two and then several.  I didn’t have time to get my camera out as they swirled about us.

They were beautiful ….. I believe that these are some of the most unique creations ….  love them….. I felt like I was in another place.  They lifted my spirits and carried me home.

Well …. time to go…

Please take the time and enjoy those moments when they arise …… it truly can be a most rewarding experience and make you feel so good/great/awesome.

Special Hello to: all those people affected by the rising waters and the forest fires ….. we wish you good contractors and some dry days, and safety and rain…..take care.

Always, Carol and Alvin.


Thought for the day….

Good Monday morning and today is July 16th ,2012.

I hope that you all had a great weekend.

The “you all” is leftover from my short stay in Texas back when I was a child.

We spent a winter there.  I loved Texas and we had the coolest neighbours on the planet.

The “Timmer Family”  …… Mom was a teacher and Dad was a fireman and their daughter’s name was Mary Beth.

Some of our other neighbours were spanish so we picked up on some of that language as well.

We sounded great when we got back to our small town school in Corning, Saskatchewan.

I can only imagine ….. what we must have sounded like ….. guess I should ask my “best friend” from my childhood …. she would likely remember.

Anyway, onto today ….. the RAIN HAS STOPPED.  The sky appears to be clearing.  I have asked nicely, and Mother Nature has responded.

Now, I love the rain, really I do but in small doses.  Sunshine is good, too.  We are in need of some now.

So back to my original comment, I hope that you all had a great weekend.

My weekend was great and strange all wrapped up in one.

Went from skyping with my sister and coffee with one of my friends and her boys to mopping up a flooded basement.

How does that happen?  RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, and more RAIN.

Oh, and I went to see a movie at our new theatre with one of my neighbours ….. we saw “The Amazing Spiderman” ….. it was awesome.

Definitely made it to my top 5 movie list of all time.  That list includes “Titanic”, of course, Pretty Woman, The Star Trek Movies (count as one) and Spiderman.  Yes, I know it is four.  But I am pondering my other one as I actually have a tie.

So that shall be for another day.

Anyway, gotta go and check my neighbour’s basement …. that is where the flood was …… it was because the builders did not put in the window properly.

I hope that you have a great Monday.

I had a great weekend ….

Special Hello to:  all those movie fans.

Have a great day.

Always, Carol and Alvin
