Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 17th day of July, 2016.

A bright and sunny morning with a slight breeze.

Supposed to be a warm day today.

Started out at 15 degrees celsius which is warm for this time of day.

Alvin is curled up on the end of our bed …. sometimes he jumps down and lays near the entrance to the office.

This is one of those days where he will stay on the bed until I go downstairs on my way to work.

He is quite the character.

Definitely a foodie.

I tell everyone that ….. you can always win his heart by giving him food or a treat.

But with all foodie we all run the risk of the ever expanding waistline.

But somehow he manages to keep it within reason for the most part although there are times ….. there have been times ….. where we had to cut back on the extras.

Somehow we went from temperatures to food to waistlines.

How did that happen?

Well I am running a couple of minutes late …. I guess that would be Monday.

One more sleep till my company arrives ….. so excited.

Always nice to see friends from back home.

I can feel the humidity in the air and am wondering if I made the right outfit choice for the day although our office is always freezing.

It will do.

I must fly here.

Wishing you a Happy Monday.

May today bring you great joy and so much laughter that you almost pee your pants.

Nothing wrong with so much laughter.

Special Hello to: our friends near and far, old and new.  Hi my new friend “A” from across the pond ….. hope you had an awesome weekend.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 17th day of May, 2016.

Well the forecast had been for sunshine and about 24 degrees for today.

This morning and through the night the wind  has got up and the sky is overcast.

The air is cool this morning.

Perhaps we will have some rain.

I went from wearing a dress and light sweater to pants, top, socks, shoes and jacket.

My how things can change.

Note to self take thee umbrella.

 

Today is one of those days after a frustrating row with the computer and trying to upload/download photos to KIJIJI for my garage sale/sale.

What can you do?

Post without the photos.

I had no choice.

Perhaps this evening things will work out.

 

Alvin and I enjoyed a nice walk last night.

The wind was starting to get up as we went quite late just before 9:00 p.m.

 

Back to the technology.

Does it sometimes make you want to S-C-R-E-A-M?

Yes, it does.

Does it sometimes make you think, E-A-S-Y in what context?

Computers are definitely a wonderful invention but really could they make things a bit easier.

Do we everyday folk have to have a degree in Computer Science to figure out the things that should be just a click away?

Oh well ….. I should not be ranting and raving.

I do love the convenience of the computer for the most part.

Breathe ….. that is all I can say is breathe.

 

Have an awesome day.

Don’t throw the computer out the window.

We will figure it out in time.

New operating system ….. slower, yes.

Easy to figure out …. NO.

 

Special Hello to: my fellow women and men who just want to upload a photo or send an email in good time.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 10th day of April, 2016.

It is overcast, and if the forecast was correct it is only about 0 degrees with a high of plus 3  for the day.

Sure is strange how the temperatures fluctuate from day to day.

Yesterday was a mixture of sun and cloud and we even had a few drops of rain.

Not enough to do much good.

I am hoping for some rain as we dearly need the moisture.

 

We are looking forward to a relaxing Sunday.

Just a few things to do and then we can go for a walk and perhaps later watch a movie.

Alvin enjoyed the company we had for the TEA PARTY last night.

What a great way to spend a Saturday night.

We even SKYPED an old friend from work who moved away to England.

My first overseas SKYPE and it was awesome.

The only way to talk on the “telephone” so the speak.

 

Happy Sunday to you all.

I hope that you were able to sit and relax or walk and relax at some point this weekend as that is always important after a long work week.

Maybe your weekend does not fall on Saturday/Sunday but always remember to take some time for you.

Without you the world would not be the same.

We need you.

We need each other.

Have an awesome day.

 

Special Hello to: my friends all over the world …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 21st day of July, 2015.

It is a wonderful morning here in Edmonton ….. the sun is rising, the rain clouds have almost dissipated and there is a bit of a breeze.

Forecast is for another warm one ….. not super hot and that is great.

On Saturday while at our Vet Clinic, I ordered a water bottle for Alvin.

One that I can carry while we walk.

Guess what …. there was a message from them …. the bottle is in.

Already, I am thinking….. wow, that is fast.

I guess with computers ….. no more paper orders …. just click and then it is in the mail or perhaps hand delivered.

I am so excited to see which one they could order.

Last night one of my neighbours called to come for a visit ….. I was drinking tea and made her a cup of coffee.

She loves the coffee that I make in my percolator.

Alvin loves company ….. he was so excited …..

We had a great visit followed by a walk with Mr. Alvin.

What a wonderful evening.

Do you ever think of an item that you could use but there is really nothing on the market?

Consider making something but wonder where do you start?

I was thinking about something…..

I will keep it a secret until I figure a few things out.

Who knows maybe I will re-invent something ….. just a bit different that is currently on the market.

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

Where does the time go?

Sometimes it feels like someone is holding up a giant vacuum at the top of the world pulling moments up one by one.

Well doesn’t that sound a bit better than the actual reason?

I wish you an awesome Tuesday.

I know that this is going to be a great great day.

Filled with all good things.

Special Hello to: all my fellow bloggers, I hope that you are enjoying your summer(s).

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 31st and last day of July, 2014.

It has been a great month and I look forward to this day and all the days of August.

I love  August …… mainly because of my birthday??

No.

I love August because all of the flowers are at their height of beauty and fragrance.

The gardens and flower pots just are full of amazing colours.

The gardens are starting to yield lots of yummy produce.

The evenings are generally cooler and more comfortable than July.

The days are still warm and wonderful.

Sometimes I take vacation which is the case now.

After 12:30 today I am on vacation from my day job until August 11th, 2014.

I am so happy and so need some time away to relax, get my “our” house sorted out and have some fun.

To me August is summer.

On this last day the sky is overcast and it is 18 degrees celsius at this time.

Forecasted high 24 ( 29 with humidity).

Possible thunderstorm this evening.

We managed to get almost all of the cleaning done last night ……

Just have to mop the floors ….. (main floor).

Happy Thursday everyone.

I hope that you can take a few days off during the month of August to enjoy what nature has to offer.

Even though I am going to stay at home for my vacation – I am looking forward to long walks (playing catch up) with Mr. Alvin and taking the time to enjoy the yard and my flowers.

Coffee on the deck, anyone?

I love being at home ….

Special Hello to: all those LEOS out there …….

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

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

The past two evenings just about the time that I have gone to bed …. the sky begins to light up and the thunder roars.

The wind gets up and then the rain comes down.

Mother Nature sure put on quite the light show last night.

I was very proud of Alvin ….. he did not seem to be bothered by all of the commotion.

I am very lucky as storms do not frighten me although sometimes the end result sure can be disheartening.

I know that some of my friends and family back in Saskatchewan are still dealing with the flooding from the storms of about a week ago.

My heart and prayers go out to them.

Also my thanks to all those people who have gone to help.

This morning the air is cool and it is windy.

Sky overcast looking like more rain for the forecast.

I am just having some oatmeal before I get ready to go to work at the store.

With the sky being overcast it looks like the store will be busy and also today is the last day of our semi-annual sale.

So we will be busy.

I hope that you had a great weekend.

I feel so great that with my daughter’s help we cleaned out “eight” rubbermaid containers from the basement.

Two huge black garbage bags out of the house.

YAY.  Am feeling pretty light this morning.

Good reminder to us all whenever you see someone in need – stop and help.

If there is anyway to help someone – do it.

We need to be better global neighbours.

Happy Sunday All.

Special Hello to: Saskatchewan, my old home province.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Monday Morning and welcome to July 9th, 2012.

WOW, July 9th, and summer is here in full force.

The forecast for this week in Edmonton is in the 30’s …. HOT.  Factor in the humidity and today is supposed to be closer to 40.

Now that is hot for here.

Thank goodness I have central air.  My grand-puppies will join Mr. Alvin for the day and likely for the week so that they can keep cool.

All is well here in Edmonton.

The lawn mowing fairy or angel came to my place yesterday while I was at my part-time job (Bath & Body Works).

So it was so great to come home to find the grass out front mowed.  Thank you neighbour.

I am very grateful for my neighbours.

The other one brought over some treats before I left for work yesterday…. some fresh herbs and strawberries from her garden and some homemade mini cheesecakes….. HEAVEN.

I had one of the cheesecakes for dessert last night and it was dreamy.

Alvin spent the day with his sister and family.

I am so blessed.  But enough about me.

I hope that you all had a great weekend and are ready to get back to the normalcy of the week.

Did you have a “TO DO” list?  How did you do?

I usually have a list and make sure to put the two most important chores at the top.

If you get them done ….. then the rest can always wait.

Well today is my early day to start work so have to finish getting ready.

I hope that you have a great day and enjoy the weather.

Special Hello: to all those great neighbours …… SALUTE…… CHEERS …. YOU ROCK.

Always, Carol and Alvin
