Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 15th day of May, 2017.

The sky is overcast with rain clouds and you guessed it, it is raining.

Thank goodness that I have an umbrella.

 

I hope that all of the Moms out there had a great Mother’s Day.

My daughter and grand-pups came by for a visit.

We had a great time and even fit in a walk.

I am very grateful to have such a wonderful daughter.

 

Well I may have to change my mind about turning the heat back on.

It is 60 degrees F in my house this morning.

Not sure what that is, celsius but it feels cold.

Thankfully Alvin has his fur coat to keep him warm.

He also has his blankets on his chair, on the sofa and on the bed for extra warmth.

I wanted to see what the difference would be on my heat/water/electricity bill without having the heat on and before we start to use the A/C.

I will see what tonight brings ……

Our office has been cold …. hopefully the bus is warm.

 

Well, almost time to hit the wet trail to the bus.

Wishing you all a Happy Monday.

Keep warm and dry.

 

Take Care.

 

Special Hello to: all my friends all over the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 8th day of May, 2017.

What an awesome weekend I had …..

A sense of accomplishment for all of the jobs around the house and yard that were finished.

A visit with my daughter, son-in-law and grand-pups yesterday.

While my son-in-law ran a quick errand, my daughter and I took the pups for a wonderful walk.

It was a bit cooler to start but by the time we got home it had warmer up considerably.

Nothing like a good cup of coffee with loved ones to end your weekend.

Thank you for the early Mother’s Day gift …..

So full …..

I am so grateful that I am surrounded by love, respect and kindness.

 

The ground was wet yesterday morning so I decided to do the trash pick-up another day ….

With rain Saturday night ….. the trash would be wet.

Lugging around wet cardboard and stuff is not fun.

 

Well this morning the sun has risen and the sky is blue.

Great start.

Monday morning here I come.

Guess I will be taking the next bus as I just needed that extra 15 minutes on the sofa.

Sunday nights are not the best for sleeping sometimes.

Will have to change my Sunday night mantra.

Anyway I will arrive at work on-time.

 

Have an awesome Monday everyone.

 

Special Hello to: friends and family.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 3rd day of August, 2015.

The sky is partially overcast and there is a breeze.

Back home again after the sibling weekend visit.

My brother and sister are staying with me until tomorrow morning.

So we shall extend our visit which is great.

Alvin was so happy to see me …. us.

Yesterday right about the time we were to sit down to a family supper … about ten minutes after my daughter and grand-pups arrived ….

My neighbour came to the door asking for dog biscuits as she was trying to rescue a dog who was in the street running between parked cars ( ours is a busy street with people driving way too fast ).

I can tell you that my neighbour, my brother and daughter were able to get the doggie to my backyard where they gave her water and food and attention.

My sister joined in with them to keep her calm …. they took a blanket for her to lay on.

They tried to contact agencies ….

She was calming down and such a beautiful dog.

She was also injured …. her paws were blistered.

She must have been walking on the hot pavement for a few days.

After being at our house for just over a hour my daughter and brother drove her to the emergency vet (this was Sunday and no other vet clinics are open).

They drove her there and the staff at the emergency clinic would not let them stay … “our girl” was anxious and peed on herself ….. they took her away.

Said cannot tell them whether she had a chip or anything due to privacy acts.

You know sometimes that is such a crime.

Everyone bonded with her and would be happy to have her live with us.

My daughter cried when they had to leave and my brother sad.

If no owner cannot be contacted within 48 hours they will call my daughter.

When they returned and we sat down to supper it was almost 9:00 p.m.

We were glad that she had been found and that we were able to assist her as she was injured.

We were pretty certain that she has a family as she had a collar, the tag for shots …. her nails were trimmed.

Well I had better get back to my company.

Always excitement ….

So glad for a happy ending.

Special Hello to: people who rescue dogs and cats.

Always, Carol and Alvin
