Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 23rd day of January, 2018.

Well we are into the later part of this first month of January 2018.

Our weather has been wonderful for the most part.

Mainly ice and not much snow.

We enjoyed a great walk last night ….. it was +1 after work.

Fantastic.

 

Well Alvin’s sleeping until the “alarm went off” was short lived although I will take 4:30 am, any day.

Oh my boy.

I know he is enjoying this weather.

Most especially in the morning.

When it is minus 30 with the windchill, I feel so badly about him having to go outside to do his business.

 

Well for some reason, I am running a bit late.

Some mornings it is hard to get my get up and go, going.

Yikes, that is a mouthful.

 

Oh well here we go to a wonderful Tuesday.

I hope that have a great day.

 

Special Hello to: all those people celebrating a birthday today.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 9th day of January, 2018.

At 4:00 a.m. it was starting to snow, every so gently, a few small round flakes.

Not much has accumulated as yet but it is in the forecast.

Temperatures being to drop over the day and colder for the next few.

I am so grateful that we had some perfect days for walking and that we were able to walk last night.

Alvin did not wish to go far but we still got a walk in and that is what is most important.

Most especially for Mr. Alvin as he is cooped up in the house all day.

Fresh air is good for him and good for me.

Good for mind, body and soul.

 

Well short post today as I am running late.

Now how did that happen, I wonder?

One minute I had 30 minutes and the next 5.

 

I wish for 2018 that we all find a way to live our lives with kindness and respect to all living creatures.

Can you imagine?

I can.

What a wonderful world it would be.

 

Special Hello to: my sister, thank you for the chat on Sunday night.  You always make me smile.  Have an awesome day.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 19th day of December, 2017.

Our weather is beginning to change and start to look more like December.

The temperatures coming up are in the double digit minus celsius range.

Oh, fun.

We will have to once again wear the warmer coats, hats, bigger scarves, bigger mitts and the works.

Oh well, thankfully we have those items to wear.

I sure hope that all Canadians have warms items to wear at this time of year.

If you know someone who is in need or if you have items that you do not require, perhaps you would like to contact one of the agencies like Salvation Army and make a donation.

It is the season for giving.

I hope that you all are doing well.

My hand is sore this morning and that could be due in part to the drop in temperature.

Well folks time to fly ….. decided that I needed a few more minutes of sleep this morning.

I know better …… do you guys lay back down and then at some point end up running a bit late?

I do and most especially at this time of year.

Well time to fly.

Have an awesome Tuesday.

Remember to always take the time for you.

To be still, quiet and just breathe.

We all need to take time to be quiet.

No multi-tasking.

No answering your phone, no texting.

No conversations.

Just be still.

It is just as important to be still.

 

Happy Tuesday.

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

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 11th day of June, 2017.

Rain clouds are scattered throughout the sky as the sun desperately tried to peek out.

Another breezy day.

Yesterday I finally was able to purchase some flowers.

My daughter and I went to COSTCO in the morning to pick up groceries and I found some beautiful flowers in their garden centre.

YAY, finally some colour in the back and front yard.

I do have lots of green awaiting blooms.

We had a great visit with my daughter and Aspen and even walked with them to our Vet (who is less than a 10 minute walk from our house).

We had a quiet Saturday ….. putting away groceries ….. so happy that fridge is full of fruits and vegetables.

We were on the extreme low side prior to the grocery shop.

Always is a great feeling to plant flowers.

Flowers make me happy and I love having them in my flower beds, on the deck in pots and in my house.

I would never turn down flowers.

So today is low key …… just finish off the laundry and prepare for the week.

Today marks the first post for the Countdown:  60 Days to 60.

Yikes ……. 60.

How did that happen?

 

Time to get this show on the road as I was up late and then slept in late.

Lots to do and need time to just relax later.

Special Hello to: my friends and family.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 7th day of June, 2017.

Another gorgeous morning ….. bright sunny skies.

Always a great way to start the day.

Another is snuggling head to head with me Alvin on our IKEA pillow on the sofa.

I could stay there forever.

Unfortunately I took an extra 15 minutes and now and rushing.

But it was worth it …..

Sometimes you just have to live dangerously.

Perhaps not quite on the edge but for me it is as I do not like to be LATE for anything.

On this Wacky Wednesday morning …..

Perhaps you need to stay with your children for an extra few minutes ….

Perhaps you need to snuggle with your puppy dog …..

Perhaps you need to go for a walk before work ……

Take those minutes because as we all know they will NEVER return.

Have a Happy Wednesday.

Time to fly to the bus ….. or walk really really fast.

Thank you for reading my blog and I love to make people giggle and ponder things.

Special Hello to: my friend “V” …… Happy Wednesday …… relax for a few minutes, okay and I love the jewellery….

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 11th day of April, 2017.

Well we were up again with the birds – actually I think it was well before the birds.

4:08 a.m.

ARGH ………..

So Mr. Alvin eats and has a drink of water and of course, then outside.

So while he is outside he decides it is time to go digging by the fence in the mud to retrieve his chew treat.

ARGH, again, I say.

It took me 15 minutes to coax him into the house.

After he barked several times ……

He was not able to get his chew treat during that time but was able to be covered in mud.

So after several minutes of scrubbing him by the back door and feeling sort of comfortable that he was clean, I let him come into the kitchen.

After journalling and eating ….. he wanted to go outside.

I figured that he had not done his business as yet so I let him out.

BIG MISTAKE !!!

BIG !!

So he retrieved the black mud encrusted chew treat and was proudly holding it in his mouth.

Standing at the back door.

ARGH, again.

So I got my trusty wet fibre cloth and towel and carefully let him into the back door area …. even carefully the mud was falling all around him.

Not happy Momma and this was at 5:30.

Finally was able to grab a couple of blueberries from my breakfast and con him into dropping the chew treat and faster than an eagle I grabbed that mud infested chew treat and threw it into the

garbage can outside the back door.

Not happy Alvin.

Anyway long story short as now I am running late …..

He is clean and chew treat less for now.

Not too happy with the Momma, methinks.

Well time to go to work.

I hope that you all have an awesome Tuesday.

Hopefully not as early start as we …. but if you did I hope that you can at least smile ….. like me.

Even though I was not happy with the mud – I love me Alvin – no matter what.

He was just doing his thing.

Happy Tuesday.

 

Special Hello to: my friends and family all over the world including my globetrotting sister …..

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 25th day of January, 2017.

Another foggy morning …..

Happy Wednesday.

 

Last night when I got off of the bus after work and was walking toward the entrance to my neighbourhood; I spotted my friends one of them being Alvin’s girlfriend “Abi.”

When her Mom saw the bus she wondered if I was on it and when she saw me …. they started walking toward me.

It was only a few seconds when Abi saw me and came running full speed to me.

Her Mom let the leash go and Abi ran to me.

Jumping up and giving me kisses and all the time making her Abi “happy to see me” sounds.

I was so taken.

What a great reception.

They joined me on the walk home.

Abi and her Mom live only a few houses from me and Alvin.

Such a great walk home.

 

Well I am running late somehow.

So have to cut this short.

Just wanted to share my happy story.

 

Special Hello to: Miss Abi and her Momma.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 2nd day of December, 2016.

Due to technical difficulties I ran out of time to write my blog this morning.

Wishing you all a great Friday and I will be back tomorrow.

 

Special Hello to : YOU, thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 2nd day of October, 2016.

It started out being bright and sunny with no rain clouds in sight.

Now a little while later the clouds are starting to roll in.

Yesterday it rained off and on all day long.

It was a good thing that I had lots of things to keep me busy in the house.

I even managed to give Mr. Alvin a hair cut.

Here is Mr. Alvin in all his glory taken only a few minutes ago and also my tree out front.

I raked the leaves all nicely on Fright night and woke up to this on Saturday morning along with a few more fallen since then.

Well I am late for a coffee date so must run.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello: to friends and family.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 14th day of September, 2016.

Still dark out but during the first part of my bus ride to work the sun begins to rise.

Yesterday morning it was the most glorious rainbow of oranges and pinks and yellows.

Breathtaking.

 

One of the things that I love to do on my bus rides is this little game.

Kind of perks me up and gets my brain working.

I find a word and see how many words I can make.

 

Example:  Edmonton

ton

one

on

to

too

mode

tone

moo

moon

met

toe

 

Well unfortunately I have to fly ….. running a tad late.

I hope that you will have some fun trying out this word game.

It is fun and a good way to begin your day.

Special Hello to: my friends “M” and “V” back in Saskatchewan …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
