Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 4th day of March, 2019.

Well here we are – Monday morning.

Alvin and I had a great weekend.

We had company, did some housework and laundry and relaxed.

I had coffee with two of my girl friends yesterday morning.

Love these gals – we always have a great time – laughing and chatting.

A great mix of work and play.

 

We went for a walk yesterday afternoon as I felt it had warmed up.

Alvin started to lift his paws only a few houses away from home.

So we turned around and headed back home.

He enjoyed going in and out to the back yard.

There is a patch of the deck that is snow/ice free near the house that always gets the warm sun, so he likes to sit or lie there, and ponder life.

Or at least that is what I choose to believe that he is thinking.

Or perhaps he is thinking oh this is nice and quiet.

Or perhaps he is thinking where is my girlfriend OR I would like a treat.

He loves to dig in the snow.

Yesterday he was at the top section of the deck near the garage by the railing digging away.

Not sure what he was looking for but he was really getting into it.

Finally he pulled his head out of the snow and cautiously went down the steps from the top part of the deck.

When I say cautiously I mean super cautious.

He goes back and forth for a minute or more before he jumps down.

Sometimes he goes down each of the three steps or he just jumps to the bottom.

I worry about him as he is getting older.

Then he came to the steps on the side of the deck that lead down to the “green area” which is partially shovelled and the other part is a big snowbank.

He has made a path in the snow and very carefully he went up.

They know when it is safe or not.

I could tell.

He went so far and turned around and came back down.

Not reaching the area that was by the railing from this side.

Alvin has so many chew treats buried in the snow and just laying about on the deck in the back of our house.

I love watching him.

Oh, my Alvin, how you make me smile and warm my heart.

Cuteness by the 10th power and more.

 

The boy, Mr. Alvin is laying on his blue blanket waiting for me to finish.

He loves his routine and I try to keep it as close to the same as I am able.

I guess I am a pretty regular routine kind of gal, so we are a perfect match.

There was a reason he picked me on that COLD January night in 2010.

I am so grateful.

 

Well here we go again, time to leave for work.

Almost time.

I hear that spring is on it’s way and is getting close.

We are happy for that news.

WALKS and WALKS ahead of us.

 

Have the best Monday ever.

Smile to yourself and to everyone you meet.

Something as simple as a smile can bring joy and relief.

Happy Monday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister, back VEGAS.  Welcome Home and Happy Monday, sister.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 14th day of January, 2016.

Last night we received a skiff of snow crystals ….. so pretty all these super mini snowballs.

Over the next few days our temperatures are going to drop and it is going to be cold again.

We have been so lucky as it has been only a few days here and there.

 

Last night after work while on our walk we bumped into Alvin’s girlfriend “Abi” and her Mom.

I am not sure what he was thinking about but he barely gave her the time of day …. not much interest.

It was sad.

Usually they frolic and play and it is so much fun to watch.

I teased perhaps he has to “poop” and that is all that he can think about ….. one thought …. focused you know.

Abi had kisses for me even though Alvin all but ignored her.

We had a nice visit and carried on our way.

It was just after we reached the last house and the entrance to the park that someone “pooped.”

Perhaps I was right ….. maybe he had to poop so badly that he could not think of anything or anyone else.

Possible I guess.

Or perhaps he just was not into her at that moment.

We all have that …..

Sometimes when a friend calls or you see someone and you just do not feel like chatting.

It does happen.

Well it was cause for conversation and a smile by both Moms.

I am sure that Abi still loves Alvin.

 

Well one more day of work this week and it is the weekend once again.

I hope that you have an awesome weekend.

Cold or Warm ….. stay safe …. have some fun.

 

Special Hello to: FRIENDS …. FAMILY …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 26th day of November, 2014.

I just had a thought.

What is the best gift in the world to receive?

The gift that you did not ask for?

Is that not the truth?

I received two Christmas cards in the mail last night.

At work on breaks and before and after work I wrote up some cards.

I did not have the address of one of my friend’s as they moved and I said to myself “Will have to leave that one till I get home and get her address”

Who do you think one of the cards was from?  My friend, of course.

The other was from a family friend …. she is family.

Anyway she has a son and I have always addressed the card to include him and this year he has a girlfriend ….. that was the second card.

I needed to know her name to put on the card …. isn’t that great.

Oh, boot camp last night was AWESOME.

I feel great and hopefully that will continue.

Was a great workout and I loved working out beside my friend even though you barely had time to see who was around you.

I had the best Tuesday night.

Well time to go to work.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Special Hello to: all those people who take the time to write Christmas cards – it is appreciated.

Always, Carol and Alvin
