Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 23rd day of July, 2018.

The sky is overcast with deep blue rain clouds.

You can see the odd patch of pale blue sky to the east.

 

Alvin is on his little blue blanket beside me as I write this post.

He asked for a massage this morning.

I think that it is funny/strange how this all started.

He just sat beside me and placed his paw up which is his way of “asking nice.”

He figured out how to ask me for my help.

 

One week from tomorrow the COMPANY arrives.

YAY, my sister is coming.

She will spend a few days with us before my niece-in-law and great nephews arrive for a couple of days.

Always great to have company.

Soon I shall be on vacation.

YAY, feels like forever since I have been on vacation.

 

Yesterday was a great day.

We did some chores around the house and was just making pancakes when the phone rang.

My daughter called to say that she was going to come over for a visit.

Perfection.

I love making pancakes for Sunday morning company.

They turned out to be some of the best ones yet.

My daughter and baby Milo (the little grand-pup) arrived just as I was finished making the pancakes (they were keeping warm in the oven) and cleaning up.

Always a good thing as then I could concentrate on our visit.

We had a good visit along with good food.

After breakfast/brunch I borrowed her car and went to the grocery store for a few items.

Alvin had some quality time with his big sis and baby Milo.

After they left for home we just had a quiet day.

 

It is nice to be able to take a deep breath and relax.

Close your eyes.

Think of something or someone wonderful OR perhaps quiet your mind and think of nothing at all.

That was the beginning of our afternoon.

Eyes closed.

Then a clink clink clink ….

Eyes opened.

Raindrops hitting the windows.

Each second the rain came down harder and harder.

Lasting only a few minutes.

Glorious sunshine arrived.

Rainbow in the sky.

Eyes closed.

Deep breath.

Thank you.

 

 

Have a wonderful Monday.

Take time for yourself.

Be kind to yourself and to all others whether two-legged or four, winged or crawling.

All life is precious.

 

Happy Monday.

Special Hello to: THE WORLD

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 15th day of January, 2018.

I believe that another beautiful day is on the way, weather wise.

There is a wind but that is okay.

We had beautiful weather this weekend.

 

Wow, the middle of January already.

We are well into the New Year now.

Do you find that any New Year feels vastly different from the previous one?

Maybe that is a good sign or maybe not.

Does that mean that life for you or perhaps for me, stays relatively the same?

I guess if we are happy with the way things are – then it is okay.

What happens if you have been working tirelessly each year to make changes and nothing happens?

Likely time to change your approach.

Maybe speak to someone that can help you with your approach – with your changes.

It is always good to talk to others if you are finding yourself stuck in a gear.

Time is valuable and if we want to make the most of it, we must try.

 

I have a pretty good life.

Now not exactly what the original plan was but then again those plans change.

It is good for them to change.

What was important to you when you were ten, sixteen, twenty-five, thirty, forty or even fifty-fifty may be different.

That is just the way that things go.

Also carry some method of taking notes with you as you never know where or when inspiration will appear.

Take a chance.

You may be surprised.

 

Well here we are once again, time to leave for work.

The weekends seem to evaporate but I am grateful to have them.

Yesterday my daughter and grand pup, Milo came for a visit.

We had a great time.

I even was able to make the trip to the grocery store that had not worked out on Saturday.

All is well.

Good conversation and the fridge is full, again.

 

Special Hello to: those folks who are embarking on a new chapter in their life.

You never know where change will take you.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 7th day of January, 2017.

Well here we are one full week into the New Year.

I hope that you are having a good one thus far.

My year I would say has been okay.

Perhaps not fireworks great.

I would say a couple of disappointing things happened but not life threatening so that is okay.

I always try to see life with the glass half full.

There are moments when I would like to scream and then once that is over I just take a deep breathe.

I am reminded sometimes by the news and sometimes by situations occurring about me that my life is pretty darn good.

I am in good health and although I am not “rich” by any means I have enough abundance in my life that I can always find a way to get through.

There is always a way.

Sometimes one would like for things to become more easy, I would like that.

I read about “Thoughts becoming Things” and I believe it, although it is hard to think abundant thoughts when things happen to the contrary.

So on this Saturday life goes on.

A week into the New Year.

Alvin and I are happy.

I am surrounded by good people.

I am surrounded by lots of friends and a good family.

I have my own house and I am OVER the moon thankful for my home.

I have two new cool pair of glasses (yay).

Alvin and I are in good health.

This morning my daughter and one of my grand-pups are coming for a visit and pancakes.

Grand-pup Aspen has a Doctor appointment this morning.

Checking on her eyes.

My children are good parents.

So time to go and have that shower (do not want to be a stinking Grandma!!).

Then get those pancakes made and COFFEE.

Always have to have coffee on the weekends.

Have a great day.

Be safe and warm.

Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: All those people who are feeling down – take a deep breathe – find something in your life that is good/great and focus on that – it will get better.  If you cannot get out of the dumps – seek help.

Everyone needs help sometime.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 22nd day of November, 2016.

Another Tuesday, how about that?

Dark outside, here in Edmonton.

It is awhile yet before the sun comes up and then as of late it has been overcast.

Even when it is winter and cold outside with the sun shining it makes things better.

I wished that the sun would shine.

It brings back the energy and joy to life.

I notice how much the lack of sunlight drains my body, mind and soul.

Not to the point that I require medical attention of course, but enough that I notice.

Perhaps that is why I love the extra lighting during the holiday season.

Christmas lights and all.

**********************

Poor Mr. Alvin and his internal clock.

He was awake sometime around 3:00 a.m. and wanting to get up.

I managed to coax him to stay in bed until 4:30 a.m.; however then I did not get much sleep during that time.

He does not appear to be sick or in any kind of pain ( I always think about that ).

This is the time of year that it takes some adjusting to the time change.

Even for we two-legged creatures.

I know for sure with me.

Oh well …..

***************************

I also want to send out all the positive good energy and love to my eldest grand-pup Elton.

He has been a force to be reckoned with for over 13 years.

His way or not.

We love the little guy so much more than words can say, and hope that he will be with us for many more days, weeks and months.

Whatever he can handle, we will take.

I hope that he is pain free,and is able to enjoy his remaining time with all of his family.

This is always a hard thing for everyone.

Our fur babies are just as important as our human ones.

Please help keep the positive energy flowing to him, I hope that it helps and I thank you.

In our hearts and minds, little guy.

*********************************

I wish everyone a good Tuesday, keep safe and warm and always surrounded by love and joy.

Special Hello to: Elton, my boy.  Hugs to you special boy.

Always, Carol and Alvin
