Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 2nd day of May, 2019.

Well this is what we woke up to at 3:30 a.m. today ……

Photos were taken a few minutes ago just after 6:00 a.m.

The temperature is to be +10 degree celsius so it will once again melt by the time that I reach home.

Or at least I am hopefully.

The moisture is good.

 

Sometimes you just feel in your very being that all is being purged.

All the bad stuff.

All the unnecessary junk.

A lightness is in your heart that feels as though life is given a second chance.

Sometimes it does feel as though you have control over life.

Anyway I know I am being cryptic but not my place to give details.

Just so happy that all is well ….

 

So on this Thursday I am feeling so extra blessed.

 

Alvin and I enjoyed a beautiful walk last night.

After the bad roads and multiple accidents near and around the City of Edmonton; I did not think that we would be walking.

But the temperature warmed up throughout the day and was pretty much all melted by the time that I got home from work.

We saw a muskrat in the pond by our home.

Swimming away.

We saw a goose wandering about.

A duck enjoying a swim.

One singles were out and about, I guess.

We also bumped into a young couple out walking their pup whom we have met before and pup is almost 17 years old.

Still lots of energy and grit.

We met a young pup named Miso (after the soup).

Miso was so full of energy …. at first Mr. Alvin played and sniffed to get to know the young one.

After a few minutes he was “done” or so I thought and then they were playing again.

I enjoyed this encounter.

Always nice to meet new people and pups.

 

Well almost time to head out of the door.

My ride came early yesterday with the roads so am thinking the same today.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day.

Happy Thursday.

Remember “gratitude” is the answer.

Yes, it is.

 

Special Hello to:  all our family ….. near and far ……. we love you all.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 5th day of September 2014.

Thoughts of Joan ..

Yesterday we lost one of our comedic legends and all time entrepreneurs.

There seemed to be nothing this woman could not do.

She was 81 and still going strong.

She made us laugh.

She made us cry.

She made us wish we could laugh or cry.

She gave us hope ….

She made us realize that no matter your lot in life you could do it all.

She did not have an easy life by any means but she lived I think a great life.

She designed beautiful jewellery for us to wear.

She was an inspiration when I decided to make jewellery.

She was an inspiration to women everywhere.

Every time she was on the Shopping Channel I would tape each airing so that I could watch them later.

I did not want to miss her jokes, her jewellery ….. that incredible wit and timing ….

I hold in my possession some of the watches and other jewellery she made; treasured reminders of a great lady.

She even designed stuff to make it appear you had more hair.

She most recently designed a clothing line.

Always crazy busy ….

This lady was on television and graced the stage.

She always had an opinion about who wore what and many other things.

But we loved her because she said what most would not.

We loved her because when most people were retiring or retired she was still full of energy and going strong.

She had that light ….. that star quality ….

I wished that her light could have burned a bit longer but she leaves behind a great legacy that we shall treasure and remember always.

I know that I will.

 

To her family and friends … she was the best.

You could just tell that her daughter Melissa and grandson Cooper were the bright lights of her life.

Joan Rivers now rests amongst the stars near our beloved Robin Williams.

The glow in the heavens is so bright ……

 

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
