Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 6th day of April, 2019.

Waking up to gloominess.

Where oh where has the beautiful bright sunrise gone?

The sky is that grey.

That gloomy colour.

The one that does not give you energy to get up and go.

Thankfully I have the pups for that …. Alvin and Teddy.

Playing already this morning.

I am so grateful that Teddy has arrived in our lives.

He gives us energy and Alvin plays now.

Even when Teddy is not around.

He grabs his toys and runs around the house; sometimes throwing them into the air.

Sometimes Alvin’s gregarious nature startles Teddy a bit, I think.

Perhaps a bit too “social.”

But they definitely are good friends.

Last night for dessert while hanging out with the boys.

I had a Baileys Banana Chocolate Frozen Dessert.

You know a little frozen banana pieces, throw in some coconut milk, a nice heaping tablespoon of dark cocoa and some BAILEYS, just a nice healthy splash.

VOILA ….. delicious.

As it was better frozen – I had to eat while in that state.

By the time I was done – a little buzz.

Just something I threw together while I watched “Kathie Lee Gifford’s last TODAY SHOW as a regular HOST.

I am sure going to miss that wicked sense of humour, her light, her kindness and her talent.

She can take a blah day or a sad moment and turn it all round with one lift of her eyebrow and a turn of her mouth.

In my previous post I did not mention her writing.

Songs, books both adult and children, plays and movies.

She sings, acts and really could have been a stand-up comedian.

 

Really there is not much this lady has not accomplished and is still accomplishing well into her 60’s.

I salute you Kathie Lee and look forward to hearing your news and music, and watching your movies.

Definitely a legend.

All the Best.

 

Bedtime for me and the boys.

They each had a chew treat.

Of course, Mr. Alvin wanted Teddy’s even though he had his own.

Oh, me Alvin.

What am I going to do with you?

 

The boys with me in my office while I write this blog post.

They patiently wait for me.

Well before a riot breaks out I had better grab the boys and head to the shower.

Too much sitting around for the boys can mean only one thing – “trouble.”

 

Wishing you all a wonderful Saturday.

May the light shine on us always.

Good Health, Joy and so much laughter that you almost pee your pants.

That is what I wish for you …..

 

Special Hello to: my friend “LE” who is celebrating a birthday today.¬† Happy Birthday.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 28th day of February, 2017.

Last day for this month.

Today is the Birthday of one of my nephews.

The second oldest one.

Happy Birthday “D” ….. Wishing you a great day.

We are well into this new year, for sure.

The mornings have been cold but have warmed up over the course of the day.

I have not had a “bad” cold for quite some time now I have the sore throat and runny nose.

Too bad all of those folks who cough into the air on the bus would not take a few more precautions.

Oh well ….

Last night my daughter gave me a ride home from work as she had to come to our area to pick up something.

It was nice to see her and for the ride.

I always enjoy our conversations.

Alvin was happy to see her.

Well this morning my head feels full of cob webs so I shall make this short.

I hope that you are all well and are enjoying this last day of February.

Special Hello to: my nephew “D” on his Birthday.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 31st day of August, 2015.

The last day of August ….. coming into my favourite season.

Just a few weeks until it is official.

The weather is changing although the weekend was warm.

Great time to be outside.

Alvin and I spent quite a bit of time outside ….

I am so grateful that my guy is feeling better.

The morning sky to the south as I gaze out the office window is a beautiful hue of mixed blue, pink and white.

Or at least that is what my eyes are seeing ….

How wonderful.

This week is supposed to be a bit more seasonal but still beautiful.

Almost forgot to pick up my bus pass …. better do that after work.

We had a great Saturday and Sunday despite the tree deal.

I am so sad that I will have to chop down my tree in the front yard.

It is so beautiful but alas cannot have the roots going into the basement or that will be another set of problems.

We chopped the roots that were getting near to the house and then will decide in spring the next course of action.

I am sad …. never nice to have to do something like this.

Breaks my heart …..

I love trees …. I love my tree.

Soon the leaves will begin to turn yellow …. they are such a pretty yellow.

I will enjoy them even more this year.

Well I guess it is time to get downstairs and gather my lunch and put on my shoes.

Get on my way to work.

I hope that you have an amazing Monday.

Enjoy this last day of August, 2015 …..

Special Hello to: my friend “P” who is coming to visit in just a few sleeps …. so excited.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 30th day of April, 2015.

Here we are on the last day of April ….. summer right around the corner.

I have spent the past couple of days home sick so it is great to be feeling better.

I will miss me Alvin ……

They have been forecasting rain for the past few days but alas no moisture.

Perhaps because I am going to work today it will rain.

I am going to take my umbrella, and be prepared.

The house is still with the only sound being the click clack of the keys as I press down on each one of them.

Almost sounding musical.

Perhaps this stillness is a good thing.

I am able to hear my thoughts with no distractions.

Alvin just got up from his position on the rug outside the office and moved into the shadows.

He likes to be in the corner for some reason.

He has his way.

Soon I shall be downstairs donning my jacket and shoes …. grabbing my purse, lunch and umbrella and on my way to catch the bus.

I hope that you are feeling great and are on your way to a wonderful day.

Almost May and in a few weeks I can plant some flowers.

One of my favourite times of year …. planting of flowers.

Okay …. time to go….

Be happy ….. do your thing ……

Special Hello to: my friends back in Saskatchewan.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 31st and last day of March, 2015.

Crazy – I cannot believe it is the last day of March.

It seems like only yesterday we were bringing in the New Year.

YIKES, which reminds me …. I have not changed my voicemail greeting.

Oh well ….. at least for those who do call and leave a message they will receive a very upbeat greeting.

 

I am so glad today is Tuesday as yesterday I was stuck in some kind of “mad gear.”

I do not not what else to call it.

There was nothing really that happened that was bad or super negative that would drive me to be in that frame of mind.

But I was stuck in that gear all day long ….

Until I got home to the puppies.

Followed by going to Costco with my daughter.

Topped up the evening with GIRL GUIDE COOKIES and a walk with my daughter, the puppies and my neighbour came along.

Thank goodness for puppies, cookies and girls.

The girl guides were next door as we were leaving for our walk …. there be girls … on the lawn …. on the sidewalk ….. cookies in a wagon ….. puppies excited …. my neighbour out to buy cookies.

It was so much fun.

 

Well here we go again time to leave for the office.

The sun is starting to come up …. oh, how I love this time of year.

I am so grateful to have had such a great evening last night.

I hope that you have a great last day of March.

It is promising to be a great one here in Edmonton.

 

Thank you.

 

Special Hello to: YOU …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 30th and last day of September, 2014.

I am sad that September is over but happy that October lies ahead.

Not too sad, though.

October is 31 days closer to putting up my Christmas tree and decorating both inside and outside of the house.

This year I have my daughter right close and we can share this experience even more so than other years.

Soon we shall be putting up Halloween decorations, that is my other favourite time of year.

My daughter and son-in-law have some cool Halloween decorations and she said we can use them this year at my house.

How cool.

Anyway, it is always good to have something to look forward to, plan about and dream for …….

I love this time of year ……

So it is always extra special.

Thoughts are just ones of excitement for these months ahead.

The smells, colours and music ….. nothing better other than the feelings that surround the holidays.

Well time to go to work.

I will be thinking of decorating for both Halloween and Christmas …..

Mmmm, what to do…..

So much.

Special Hello to: my cousin “J” in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 29th day of April, 2014.

The second last day ever for April in the year of 2014.

How crazy is that?

Well it is.

If we ever dare think about in that respect.

This is the last time we will ever have this day, these minutes and moments.

I am savouring these for sure.

At this very nanosecond my life is picture perfect.

Alvin and I are in great health.

We have the best family and friends on the planet or in the universe for that matter.

We live in a beautiful home and have a yard.

The sky is pale blue with the sun rising up higher and higher.

I have a job … make that two.

I can hear the birds singing and my heart beating.

Doesn’t get better than that …..

Life is grand.

I have so much to be thankful for at this very moment.

Take a moment and peel the layers back.

Think about it …. at this very nanosecond …. this very moment …… how great is your life?

You can make it whatever you wish.

Life is like a canvas ….. you draw some lines …… put them together and colour it in …..

Happy Tuesday everyone.

Elton and Penny are coming to visit Mr. Alvin today.

He is excited …… I can see it in the gleam of his eyes.

Special Hello to: all those people who know they are the artist ….. happy drawing.

Always, Carol and Alvin
