Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 4th day of September, 2017.

Labour Day …..

The sun is shining brightly in a so blue almost white sky.

There is a coolness to the air and it is the perfect time for me to get out and do my neighbourhood trash pickup.

In fact, before breakfast of pancakes decided better to work up an appetite.

Strange thing I noticed later in the evening and this morning – Mr. Alvin is limping.

Front paw.

He has not cried out nor does he appear to be in pain.

I carried him up the stairs but forgot when we went down earlier.

Will keep an eye on the boy.

Well this is going to be short as I want to get out into the neighbourhood and the trash done early.

Have an awesome Monday.

Special Hello to: all those people who volunteer their time and energy to help out in their neighbourhoods.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 2nd day of September, 2017.

The sun is shining now as the sky begins to clear.

I was a “bad” girl and slept until just a few minutes ago which was close to 10:00 a.m.

Please bear in mind that I was up with Mr. Alvin at 4:30 a.m. so that he would eat and go outside.

Followed by 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. – so not a straight through sleep.

Sure nice to just be able to get up whenever …..

Now time to have a relaxing breakfast and enjoy a couple of cups of coffee before getting my chores done around the house.

 

I have been faithfully watering my friend’s flowers every night.

Alvin loves playing in her yard.

Last night another friend and her two small dogs joined us …. we were going to go on a walk together and I thought they could play in the yard while I watered the flowers.

Both of my friend’s dogs have gone through recent trauma so to be off leash with Alvin was a good thing.

On leash when we begin our walks they growl, lunge and snap at Alvin, who takes a step back and stays out of reach.

They are both chihuahuas.

So we had fun.

 

Today will be laundry, a few things around the house and outside as the forecast is for rain tomorrow.

On Monday in the earlier morning I am going to go and do a garbage/trash pickup in the neighbourhood in honour of LABOUR DAY.

So many people do not have the luxury of being at home on this day.

 

Well time to get going here.

Have an awesome Saturday.

Take the time on this long weekend to lend a hand to a senior, to someone in need or perhaps pick up the trash in your neighbourhood.

There is always someone or something that can be done.

Share your time.

 

Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: my sister and brothers ….. thank you for a great time this summer.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 1st day of September, 2015.

WOW, it is September ….. yikes.

How many days until Christmas?

I guess first I had better look at Thanksgiving and Halloween and Remembrance Day.

All special days in their own right.

How is it that Christmas shines over all of the rest?

Perhaps maybe because of all the lights!

Okay, being silly here …..

Crazy, being funny at 6:30 in the morning.

I guess the “Matcha” must be working (green tea powder).

I don’t think that it makes one funny ….. just feeling better.

Well it is beginning to lighten outside.

Argh …. it is dark now when we get up in the morning.

The sun rises about 7:00 a.m.

Do you have plans for September?

Oh, and how could I possibly forget this weekend.

It is Labour Day.

One of my dear and long-time friends from Regina is coming to visit this weekend.

I am so excited …. can barely sleep or think.

I guess that is why I have not been sleeping proper.

It is always great when I have a chance to visit friends.

The years pass by and sometimes it can be a few in between visits.

Thank goodness for technology other than the telephone.

We can email and SKYPE.

Wishing you the best first day of September.

My favourite season is officially only a few weeks away.

I love everything about fall /autumn (depending on where you live).

The colours / the temperatures / the air / the scents.

Just the perfect time of year.

Well almost time to hit the road to work once again.

I hope that this day brings you closer to realizing your dreams.

Happy Tuesday.

Special Hello to: all those folks out there who love the fall.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 1st day of September, 2014 and Labour Day.

It is quiet here in the house as Elton and Penny remain on the sofa while Alvin joined me upstairs to get dressed and to write my blog.

I had planned to have a quiet day but alas once I started writing out a TO DO LIST things have changed.

I guess we can always find things to do ….

Who knows perhaps that will change, too.

Maybe I will just do the necessary things like take the puppies for a walk.

We went after work last night …. two before supper and one afterwards.

I took them separately and that worked out much better.

They enjoyed the walk and so did I.

The most well behaved one was Miss Penny …. she gets the gold star (if I was handing them out).

It was enjoyable.

 

The sky is overcast and it is breezy.

Yesterday was sunny and breezy.

When the sun was out it was warm but when those clouds roll in it was cool.

Funny how quickly things change as soon as we hit August and now September.

This is my favourite time of year.

It won’t be long and the leaves will begin to turn colour.

The days are already much shorter.

I love the smell of the air …. that crispness ….

Warm but that cool thread to the air.

ODE TO FALL …..

 

So on this Monday I hope that you are well.

Perhaps spending the day with your loved ones.

Maybe you are getting the kids ready to go back to school or maybe you are getting ready to go back to school.

Maybe you are just getting home from being on vacation.

Maybe you are home just doing some chores around the house.

Take care.

 

Special Hello to: my friend back in Regina “V” who nominated me on FB to take the Grateful Challenge.

( I do write in my journal every single day …. minimum of ten things that I am grateful for )

I think it is a good practice.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Today is Monday, September 4th, 2011 – Labour/Labor Day.

I want to personally thank and am grateful for all those labourers who have gone before us ….. literally paving the way.

This is for us all….. we ┬ámake a difference.

We all labour/labor …… in some way, shape or form….

Have a great day

Always, Carol
