Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 11th day of October, 2017.

Yesterday was a great start to my “work” week.

I accomplished everything on my work “to do” list.

As I was waiting for the bus with a guy that I know from the office; this car stops and someone was waving.

We looked at each other and wondered aloud was this someone that knew one of us? or thought that they did?

After a few seconds and before the light changed I decided to just walk closer to the car so that I could see who it was,c and it was for me.

A gal that I had met on the bus that lives in a neighbourhood north of me had noticed me so stopped to see if I would like a ride home.

How simply wonderful is that?

Pretty great, I will tell you.

As it turns out she had started to carpool with her son and he is on a week vacation so she is continuing to drive.

She works downtown so she drives right by bus stop.

She had wondered if she would see me.

We had a lovely chat on the way home and she advised that she should be able to give me rides home all this week.

My bus friend said that she will pick me up from my work.

Also said that her son loves tea and has started to drink more and wanted to see a catalogue.

BONUS.

Also our Canada Post is having FREE shipping on parcels every Tuesday in October for those who have this certain small business card, for which I do.

Anyway I had been unable to set up an on-line shipping account until yesterday.

Last night I went to my friend who uses it and was able to print the postage label for my parcel.

BONUS.

What a crazy great day.

Alvin and I had a wonderful walk after work.

I think that today is going to be even better.

So put on your easy going positive cap and walk out your door.

No worries ….. be joyful.

Good things happen.

 

Happy Wednesday.

Yes, my sister I had a great day yesterday.

We will SKYPE soon.

 

Special Hello to: my dear friend “V” ….. always in our thoughts.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 3rd day of May, 2015.

What a glorious morning here in Edmonton.

While I was writing in my gratitude journal at the kitchen table this morning, I gazed out of the window onto the deck.

What to my eyes did I see but a slight layer of frost glistening like diamonds in the sunlight as it slowly melted into the wood.

So beautiful ….. one of nature’s best.

We finally got some rain late yesterday afternoon and overnight.

Enough to make the ground damp in spots.

Better than naught.

So happy to see spears of green grass poking their way to the sunlight on the front and back lawn.

We, me and Alvin are getting ready to greet some company for coffee.

Two of my girl friends and possibly their children are coming for a visit.

We always love to have company.

Love to chat about the world and ours.

Love to laugh and tell stories …. recanting our childhoods and such.

It is a glorious morning.

Yesterday was busy ….. OH, I VOTED in the advanced polls.

YAY …. so happy to have that most important task completed.

Also hit the grocery store, did some cleaning  …. more laundry ….. (where does it all come from??) and decided to put out the new bathroom curtain, towels and accessories in the main bathroom upstairs and also in my bedroom.

FIXED:  bedroom – bedspread, sheets, new matching pillows ….. looks beautiful.

I was going to wait until I painted but decided “why not enjoy it all now” ….. this way it gives me a better idea as to what direction I should go for the paint colour.

Photos were snapped and I will post them shortly so you can see my new stuff and perhaps give me some ideas as to paint colour for the master bedroom.

My thoughts initially were light turquoise or the palest of sky blues and now I am leaning to SAND.

Oh, I am needing some coffee.  Might have to put it on a bit early ….. mmm, I love a good cup of coffee.

Oh, yes … I did not forget about Miss Aussie …. her Momma is away down south … Palm Springs, I Believe.

She actually ran off the window ledge when she saw me coming so I gingerly opened the front door and stuck my keys in ahead of me (she likes to put her paws out, too and hers are way more sharp than mine) ….. anyway I managed after a couple of moments to get inside the house.  She then ran back to the window.  I gave her food, her medicine and fresh water.  As soon as she was away from the window … I opened it …. she loves to sit on the window sill and look outside.  She might as well enjoy the beautiful fresh air.  By the way, it smells like it just rained.

Well time to go and get that coffee on and a couple of items.

I hope that you have a grand Sunday.

Take care and be safe.

Be kind as you set out on your day …..

To yourself and to ours.

Special Hello to:  Family and Friends …… thank you for everything in my life.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 22nd day of October, 2014.

WOW, it is another gorgeous day.

Last night after visiting my nephew at the hospital; arriving home feeding puppies – me and Alvin went for a walk.

Well we started to go on a walk.

Once we reached the front sidewalk (it was dark); I realized that my neighbour had just arrived home.

So we chatted for a bit and out of the blue this yellow coloured cat came strolling down the sidewalk.

Alvin was pulling a bit on the leash and wagging his tail.

He was in the foster home with four cats so I know he likes them.

But not since then has he been that close to a cat.

The cat came right up to us …..

Alvin was sniffing her and they were fine.

She didn’t hiss or snarl and Alvin didn’t bite her.

They were really good together.

This cat has been coming around for awhile and we have been trying to figure out if it has a home.

There are a lot of cats in our neighbourhood and some of them like to prowl around at night.

We have seen this cat during the day on occasion.

We discussed what to do about the cat.

She was going to try and get her into the house so that she could take the cat to the Humane Society.

I thought because Alvin and said cat got along so well that maybe I would adopt her ( I am calling the cat “her” because Alvin loves the ladies, so has to be a female) once the kids got moved into their new house.  There are too many people/animals in the house at the moment.  She would be scared.  Perhaps.

So my neighbour thought she could take the cat until then.

Alvin and I went on a walk and when we came home …. their front door was open as they were trying to coax the cat inside but to no avail.  They took a photo and are going to post it on KIJIJI and then check with the Humane Society.

So it was a great night.

My nephew continues to make slow progress….. his body is healing amazingly well…… just need him to keep his eyes open and start to see things ….. he will, I know.

Well time to go to the office again.

I hope that you have a great day.

Always exciting at my house.

Special Hello to: everyone, with winter around the corner if you see any stray animals please report them to your local Humane Society or SPCA so that they will not freeze outdoors.

Always, Carol and Alvin
