Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 2nd day of June, 2017.

Happy Birthday to a special niece back in Saskatchewan ….. Best Wishes “D.”

Well here in Edmonton on this Friday morning the sky is filled with rain clouds.

When we first got up at 4:30 it was dark and overcast and dry.

A few minutes later when Alvin needed to go back outside it was started to rain.

Even some thunder and lightning earlier.

Now a couple of hours later it is very wet.

WINDY and RAINING.

Good combination of the umbrella and the walk to the bus stop.

Perhaps I will take on the role of Mary Poppins this morning.

Just kidding.

Put up the hood.

I knew there was a reason that I did not completely dry my wet hair.

What would be the point.

But it is Friday and I am happy about that.

It has been a good week with just a couple of small hiccups.

Hiccups are okay once and awhile.

Tomorrow Alvin needs a haircut and bath.

I think he will feel better.

Seems like forever but has only been a few weeks.

What are your plans?

Work …. play …… play ….. work ….. a good combination.

Make sure that you always mix it up ….. we always need time to play.

Too much work ….. well you know.

I hope that you enjoy your Friday wherever you are and if you have any appointments and such that they go well.

Take care.

Special Hello to: all my family and friends spread all over the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. – picture this: what if you could gather every single person that you are related to or are friends or friendly or even just know together.  I wonder what that picture would look like.

Likely need to take an aerial shot, right?  Have a great day.

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 29th day of January, 2017.

Looking like another beautiful day.

The sky is mainly overcast but the sunrise is peering through.

Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous here in Edmonton.

Alvin and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit with my daughter and the pups.

Alvin and Aspen are still figuring things out.

Aspen wants to play so badly with Alvin.

Yesterday, at one point we were up in my office and they had some “playful moments.”

Her size kind of intimidates Alvin but he tried.

Alvin would bark and Aspen would bark because he was barking.

Then he would playful chase her but remember she is quite big and almost took out a table that I have in my office.

So cute to watch.

He tried to do “the thing” you know ….. he’s a guy and she’s a girl or at least that is what it looked like ….

Milo just stood beside us and barked when they barked.

Of course, remember he is only 5 pounds.

We had a great visit and look forward to the next one.

We even took them all for a walk.

Looking so cute walking down the street.

Our three Amigos or at least trying to be.

Left to Right: Aspen, Baby Milo and Alvin.

Now Baby Milo has grown and is now 5 pounds.

Despite the barking which if my neighbours were home would not have been great.

Thankfully it did not last too long.

In time they will all be best buds.

Alvin is the oldest and it is definitely taking him the longest.

I guess that is true for older humans, as well.

Young ones learn quickly for the most part and the old ones well it sometimes takes a bit before they are comfortable.

Nothing wrong with either scenario.

Well time to get this ship on the water or time to get this show on the road.

We have had a great weekend thus far and have another busy day ahead.

Time for Alvin to have another haircut and bath.

We have or rather I have lots to do mainly some items but a lengthy list so time to get started.

Have an awesome Sunday.

Remember no matter who you are if you are meeting someone new it is okay to take your time getting to know them.

Taking your time is okay.

Relationships are not to be rushed.

 

Happy Sunday.

Almost February and then S-P-R-I-N-G …….. wonderful.

Our winter has been good but spring is always most welcomed.

 

Special Hello to: You, remember you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 29th day of November, 2015.

The second last day of November …. where did it go?

I think that we say and think that every single month.

Time just has a way of marching on, right!

That is why it is so important to live each day to the fullest.

Now fullest does not necessarily mean that you have to get up at 5:00 a.m. and go to bed at midnight filling the day full of doing things.

Fullest to me, means that when you go to bed at night that you have done your very best.

I believe that living each day to the fullest is not so much about the number of things that you accomplished from your “list” but more about how you felt, and reacted to situations/people through the course of your day.

We all tend to judge ourselves and others.

How about we try not to.

Turn those nasty thoughts and remarks into a happy dance.

Instead of making others feel bad and making yourself look “like a butt” try to make others feel good …. say something pleasant / do something nice.

You will feel so much better.

Just be your very best self.

Be kind …. Be respectful …… do what you can do to that end.

Do not be disappointed or critical of yourself just do better that is why we have tomorrows.

Living each day to the fullest ….. I smiled at everyone.  I treated myself and others with kindness and respect.  I felt good about how I handled each situation and each encounter.

Food for thought.

Now it is time to get this day going …. Mr. Alvin’s haircut and bath were rescheduled to today as yesterday got away on me.  Finish the laundry and have some fun with me Alvin.

Thank you.

Special Hello: to my fellow humans …. let us always do better today than yesterday.

Always, Carol and Alvin
