Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 18th day of October, 2014.

WOW, it is simply the most gorgeous morning.

There is a slight coolness to the air with the sun shining brightly.

It is Saturday ……

Alvin is standing on the bed looking out of the window taking in all that he can.

He hears the geese honking as they fly overhead.

He seems to be watching for Aussie the neighbour’s cat as he loves to watch her when she is in the back yard.

He will stand on his hind legs and just gaze out of the window for several minutes at one time.

So cute.

Ah, to have a simple life.

This past couple of weeks have been filled with incredible highs and lows.

I am reminded that sometimes we need to push through the clouds to see the rainbows.

So that is my thought for this Saturday ….. just push through those clouds and find your rainbow.

There are many days that challenge us, and even though in my head I want only easy days.

I know that easy is not always better.

Growth takes place in a sea of challenges.

If we simply take one moment at a time it will not feel like the roof is falling down upon us.

Relax and breathe.

It will work out for the best ….. it almost always does.

I hope that you have a great Saturday, and that you see past the clouds and find your rainbow.

Maybe today it will be a double one ……

Happy Saturday Everyone.

Special Hello to: all those people who have sent their positive energy to our family.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 14th day of September, 2014.

Oh, what a gloriously beautiful sunny warm morning.

It feels like summer again but with a hint of coolness to the air.

You know the feel that you have in early fall.

It is so nice outside.

I spent a couple of hours outside yesterday (it was beautiful, too) mowing grass, pulling weeds, trimming back my roses (which I am going to pull as they just are not doing well), emptying most of my plant pots (a few were not affected by the recent frost) and just general tidying up.  It was glorious.

This is truly my favourite time of year.

Oh, I hear the geese honking up a storm as they are preparing for “winter” or travelling south.

Some stay for the winter ….. others do not  ….. I should google to see why.

Anyway …. they were flying by and saying hello.

I certainly have enjoyed this weekend.

How much better than this does it get:

-started Saturday morning off with coffee at my friend “G’s” house.

-then home and Penny had gone to the Vet with her Momma & Dad so decided that me and the boys should go for walk.

-we did, it was so nice out.

-then home mowed grass and did yard work ….

-laundry and some cleaning.

-made supper.

-went for groceries after supper.

-then had tea and watched a Star Trek movie or at least part of one. (I have already seen them all a million times, so I know how they end).

-then to bed …. snuggles with Mr. Alvin ….

PERFECTION.

I hope that you had a perfect weekend thus far.

Today I am off to work at the store.

Just enjoying a cup of coffee and some quiet time before I leave.

Have a great Sunday.

Do something fun today.

If you have sunshine ….. go outside and enjoy ….. no boots or heavy jackets …….

Special Hello to: my sister back in Regina ……. HELLO ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
