Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 16th day of June, 2016.

It is a bright sunny morning here in Edmonton, a little crisp but beautiful.

Sometimes I like to check and see what was going on on this date a year ago or maybe the first year that I blogged, here is this date last year.

Funny the similarities ….. 

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 Sunday the 28th day of February, 2016.

Today is the second last day of February – remember this year we have an extra day.

It is a bright sunny morning – the dinner birthday party was a huge successful.

Something I do seldom I did – had a couple of drinks and well up a bit later than usual.

Guests brought some refreshments ….. oh, my.

( Do not worry I was up at 6:00 with Mr. Alvin – he did sleep in for him as we were up until midnight).

The Birthday Girl was happy and all my guests loved supper and the cake.

So sweet both the Birthday Girl and My Guest brought me flowers ….. am I not the luckiest girl, I think so.

So it was a success ….. Mr. Alvin had four-legged company which was great.

So I leave this with you …… on a day that fills me with inspiration .

 

 INSPIRING

Inspiration comes from the oddest of places, at the strangest of times.

Inspiration can arrive with a knock on your door, say around 4:00.

Inspiration can take you places that your heart has always wanted to go.

Inspiration can make the day so much more fun.

Inspiration can come from watching the neighbourhood children running down the sidewalk.

Inspiration can come from catching one’s smile in the bathroom mirror, at just the right time.

Inspiration just sometimes arrives.

Inspiration can come from watching your dog meet his first love.

I am inspired each and every day by something.

It can be a dragonfly flying in my back yard.

It can be the scent of the roses on a summer’s day.

Making me wish that I was a maker of perfume and could bottle that heavenly scent.

It can be from watching the clouds float on by.

It can be from life – such as it is – such as it will be.

Inspiration gives us wings – gives us wings to fly.

Be inspired.  Whether it by something big or something small or nothing at all.

Just be inspired.  Be inspiring.  It is inspiration after all.

To have uplifting influence on ….. I like this dictionary meaning.

Have the most wonderful day …..

Take a walk …. help a friend ….. be kind to yourself.

Special Hello to: my sister ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 2nd day of June, 2014.

June …… WOW.

I see the first fly on my office window ……. officially spring/summer.

A robin just flew by ….. sure seems to be lots happening as I look out my window.

The sun is shining and the sky is a lovely powder blue.

YAY …… perfect Monday morning.

I hope that you awoke this morning surrounded by delightful-ness (not sure if that is even a word).

Last night on our walk just before the skies opened up – we picked up most of the posters from our neighbourhood cleanup.

We will get the rest tonight.

Back to the fly …….

The fly almost looks like it is frightened to be up so high.

He keeps turning ever so slightly.

I do not know how high they fly?

Maybe two stories is too high.

Poor little guy.

Well almost time to go to work ….

Just seems like it was Monday ….. a day or two ago.

Lots has happened in that one week.

The fly is still there.

Seems weird.

They never stay in one place for very long.

Perhaps he just just taking in the sights or maybe he is a “peeping fly” ……

Very strange.

Okay, enough fly commentary ….. time to go to work.

Have a great day …..

Special Hello to: all those people who write stories ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
