Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 13th day of August, 2014.

It is overcast and a bit cool with forecast of temperatures in the high 20’s….

Nice to have a cool start to the morning.

Might not be thinking that in a few months time.


Alvin and I have had to push our walks later in the evening so that we can actually avoid the worst of the heat.

As it was last night at 9:15 it was still very warm …. most especially if you have a fur coat on.

I was thankful once we went to bed for the breeze that came in through our open bedroom window.


Today is the birthday of my dear friend’s son “K” ….. Happy Birthday Nephew.

So many August Birthdays.

Tomorrow is my great nephew’s “A’s” Birthday and he turns 9 …… almost a teenager.

How did that happen?

Doesn’t it seem like before you eyes children go from being babies to teenagers?

Perhaps it is because once you reach the ripe old age of 30 …… times just seems to fly by in the wink of an eye.

I just keep winking and blinking and enjoying each moment …..

Well time to go to work.

I hope that you have a great day.

If you are celebrating a birthday or another special occasion …… have a great time.

If not, have a great time anyway.


Special Hello to: “K” …. Happy Birthday buddy …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 17th day of January, 2014.

It is beginning to brighten up outside as the sun rises.

The temperatures have been on the plus side for the past few days and are to continue over the weekend.

I hope that a good bit of the snow melts and dries up.

Just on my way to have coffee with a neighbour.

I love our get togethers.

Always enjoyable.

Do you have regular get togethers with your best friends?

You should ….

Always nice to talk and to laugh.

“G” always makes me laugh.

She has the most incredible way of telling a story.

Another friend “S” will be there as well.

She is fun and the nicest person.

I am surrounded by great people.

Exactly the way it should be.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: my sister and great nephews and their mom… enjoy the sleepover….

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…….

Good Monday Morning – today is January 9th, 2012.

Another gorgeous morning.

Alvin is resting on the foot of my bed (he goes up there while I am getting dressed in the morning).

I was thinking this morning as I was writing in my gratitude / daily journal how much I loved having him snuggle on my lap as I write.

OMG, he can curl up ….. I shall deem him the MASTER of curling up.

He looked so cute.

He makes my mornings ….. somehow getting up at 5:00 is much easier with him here to go through the process.

He is such great company.

I hope that you all have someone to wake up to ….. whether four-legged or two …..

The four-legged ones (like Alvin) are there every step of the way (whether I am eating or getting dressed or brushing my teeth …. he’s there).

Today I am extra grateful to have Alvin here with me.


Special Hello to:  my great nephews Azlin, Zane and Ezzy (we SKYPED on Saturday and was so great to seem them all and of course, their Mom, Sara and their Grandma, my sister Cindy).

What a great way to begin a Saturday afternoon …… visiting with children …..

Always, Carol
