Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 1st day of January, 2018.

Mr. Alvin and I brought in the New Year in a quiet manner.

We were fast asleep when the clock struck midnight.

Although I was awaken by a trip to the washroom, not sure if I picked up the flu bug or not.

So many folks hit with the bug.

I am feeling better but on the weak side.

I hope that you are well on this first day of the New Year.

Just wanted to touch base and am ready to go and lie down again.

Watching the NHL Winter Classic.

Nothing like a hockey game when you are under the weather.

The temperature is warming up and I am hoping to take Mr. Alvin for a walk a bit later.

Happy New Year.

 

Special Hello to: all my family and friends.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 1st day of May, 2017.

Well April showers hopefully will bring May flowers.

We had a great couple of days to close out April.

Yesterday only a few minutes after I finished raking the front lawn including my neighbours we received HAIL.

YIKES.

Thunder shower with hail that is how we ended April 2017.

 

Alvin and I enjoyed our walk.

We only were a few houses away from home when we bumped into neighbour/friends so we had a short chat to catch up.

We have changed our regular walk as the pathway around the lake has been wet and muddy.

So as we were on our way around the big lake – friends of ours spotted us and of course, we went to join them.

We ended up chatting for quite some time before we decided just to walk together on our way home.

The temperature was perfect …. no wind …… just perfect.

We listened to the frogs in the lake and birds chirping from the trees.

People stopped to say hello with their dogs.

We met even more nice people and their fur-babies.

Absolute perfection.

 

After reaching home I went about finishing the last two loads of laundry, raking the back yard and then decided I may as well rake the front.

Why wait – perhaps it was not as wet as I had previously thought.

I was right.

So rake both mine and the neighbours.

Just in time as the thunder shower with hail happened just a few minutes later ….

 

After I make the fridge oatmeal, lunch and got supper into the oven – we had time to catch up on THE VOICE.

Such a lot of talented singers.

 

I noticed on FB, something that made me beam with pride.

At a recent hockey game in Edmonton when it came time for the guest to sing “The American National Anthem” there was a mic hiccup so he rallied the crowd and they sang.

It was amazing.

So Canadian Hockey FANS singing the American National Anthem and sounded like they knew the words.

Made me proud.

Thank you guys.

 

Well here we are time for me to leave for the bus.

Sun coming up …… promises to be a great day.

 

Happy Monday.

Be well everyone.

 

Special Hello: thank you sister for the lovely chat via SKYPE last night.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 28th day of January, 2017.

Oh it is a gorgeous morning out there.

The night clouds are dissipating.

The sun is rising and the sky is amazing.

The dark blue, light blue, oranges and pinks fill the sky.

Did I tell you just how warm it is out there?

Well it is so nice out there.

I went out with Alvin into the backyard and I could have easily sat on a chair and drank a cup of coffee.

Now that would be if there were a chair out there at this time, and if I had coffee.

So nice.

Forecast is for +7 degrees celsius today.

I think it is going to be warmer.

On our walk night before last we were speaking to some neighbours and they  had a outdoor hockey game this morning.

He said they cancel the game(s) if the temperature hits +4.

Makes sense.

He said 0 would be perfect.

It actually feels like plus degrees now.

 

I am very excited as my daughter is coming for a visit this morning.

She arrives about 10:30.

Thinking she may bring one or both of the pups, likely Miss Aspen.

So in the meantime there is time to change bedding (done), have breakfast, put on some laundry and do some cleaning.

Most importantly put on some COFFEE.

 

This is going to be a fantastic weekend.

Company, warm temperatures, walks and chores done around the house.

I also have a tea order to submit tomorrow.

YAY.

 

Wishing you all a great weekend.

May your morning sky take your breath away with its’ beauty.

May you have the best Saturday ever.

 

Special Hello to: ┬áMorning People ….. up and out there.

Always, Carol and Alvin
