Good Morning All! How are you on the this fine weekend? I hope that you are very well. In good health and are doing at least some of the things that you love to do. We were up and down last night. First of all, Mr. Alvin was sleeping like a log when I could not even turn off my mind, tossing and turning for what seemed like all night. He woke up at 3:00 a.m. and had to go outside and then we were on the sofa. No surprise there for you or me. If you have been reading my posts on a regular basis you will know about our early mornings. LOL. Anyway, up and out and back to the sofa. He wanted to get up a couple of times after that and I managed to coax him to remain on the sofa until I thought it was a good time for time to eat and that was between 4:30 and 5:00 a.m. …… then back to the sofa and for most of the time I just laid there lost in gentle thoughts and occasionally dozing off. I have not done that in a long time. It was nice to just lay there with no immediate place to be. Now we are up and have been for a bit. The poop has been cleaned up from last night and this morning. There was some urgency to do it sooner than perhaps later this morning as the forecast is 80% chance of rain. Right now the sun is shining. Our bedding has been changed and I am now doing this post. I decided it may be a great idea for us to go for a walk now. Then we can come home and I can have breakfast before starting his haircut and finally his bath. I want to get our walk in before the rain and besides not much giving him a haircut and bath only to go for a walk and get muddy again. Nope. Not happening …..

What a week we have had ….. pretty good …… going for walks at noon……unplanned visit with my daughter ….. nice visit with Sonja and Humphrey across the fence last night after work ….. my friend G picked up a few items at Costco including some Hershey Eggies (egg shaped milk chocolate covered in a colored coating. OMG they are so good. I had to place the bag in a spot that I would not have my hand dipped into the bag every five minutes. Hard to believe that Easter is two weeks away.

Well I think that we should get out for a walk while the getting is good. I am going to share some photos …..

From land to sea to air, our planet is incredible.

Amazing how wildlife, the grass and trees have come back in Chernobyl.

Mother Nature in all her glory.

Enjoy.

I hope that you enjoy these photos.

We are going for a walk.

Have an awesome Saturday.

Living in kindness, with respect and compassion and patience.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 16th day of October, 2016.

Grey skies out there this morning.

I believe they are forecasting more freezing rain over the next day or so.

Not a good thing.

Funny how dark skies makes everything feel so quiet and sunny skies are noisy.

I guess we do things differently on those days.

Going to be a quiet Sunday ….. finishing up some cleaning.

Work on my Steeped Tea business.

Just enjoy the day with my boy.

I am grateful to have some less hectic days.

The leaves are all off of my tree now.

Missed that final final raking but I guess a bit of leaf cover is not all bad.

Alvin is patiently waiting for me outside the office.

These days he is not liking walking on the laminate floors.

A sign of getting older.

Oh the joys.

Well I have to fly again …. always flying.

Have a great Sunday.

Take some time to relax.

Special Hello to: all my fellow bloggers ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 4th day of April, 2015.

Well it is overcast and snowing here in Edmonton.

On the deck the snow is sticking as it makes touchdown.

Just a steady stream of rain-like snow coming down.

When I look out of my front window the streets and sides are only wet.

What a start to the weekend, yesterday was bright and sunny, and I think it was 15 degrees celsius here.

Now today exact opposite.

 

Well today is my last shift at the store.

Last night I baked a bunch of chocolate chip cookies to take to the staff this morning.

To show my appreciation for them all.

I am both excited and sad for this day.

Excited to have Friday night and the weekends back but sad to not to see all of my friends.

Today will be bittersweet.

 

Alvin is intently gazing out of our temporary bedroom window.

The kids move into their new house on the 16th which is right around the corner.

So much happening right now.

Still busy but at least now it will be on my own timetable.

 

I hope that if you are travelling on this Easter long weekend that you have clear skies if you are flying and dry safe roads for driving.

I hope that you are surrounded by the love of family and friends.

I hope that you are surrounded by laughter ….. always good to have some giggles.

I hope that perhaps you reach out to someone less fortunate than yourself.

I hope that if you see an animal in distress you help them.

May this weekend be all about love and respect for yourself and others.

Always remembers “others” includes all beings …..

 

Have a great Saturday.

Special Hello to: all those folks who read my blog, thank you so much.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 6th day of April, 2014.

Today is the birthday of one of my friend’s and past co-workers back in Regina.

Happy Birthday “L” ….. hope you have a great day.

 

Looks like it is going to be a beautiful day.

It is a happy day …. I am filling my first waking minutes with happy lively music.

Here is the list:

“On Top of the World” by Imagine Dragons 

“Happy” by Pharrell Williams

“Let it Go” by Idina Menzel

“Roar” by Katy Perry 

Take a listen great songs.

I believe in stretching your music library ….. listen to a variety.

I am on top of the world –  letting it go – feeling very HAPPY now  –  listen to me ROAR.

This is my motto ….. my affirmation……

So listen to some music ….

Put together your motto ….. your own affirmation.

Listen to you roar ….. I am watching you fly.

SOARING ……

Have the best Sunday.

Special Hello to my friend “L” who is celebrating a birthday today back in Saskatchewan.

Always, Carol and Alvin
