Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 8th day of April, 2019.

I can see whispers of clear morning sky to the East as the SUN begins to rise.

I love sunrises.

So beautiful the way the sky changes from the deep dark night to the bright morning light.

The sky appears to be a canvas of brush strokes that have been smeared until there were light undertones.

If I look under the semi closed blind on my office window I can see that more of the night sky has begun to change.

Nature is so glorious.

Happy Monday morning.

 

Well here we are starting a new week.

Alvin and I enjoyed our weekend.

As you know Master Teddy slept over Friday night and went home late Saturday afternoon.

We walked on our own and also with Humphrey the Cat and his Mom.

I would not call it a walk as much as it was a sniff fest for Humphrey.

He looked so cute with his harness and leash.

Even children smiled and said “Oh, wow a cat on a leash.”

Humphrey has a good Momma.

Some folks just let their cats roam without a thought.

In this day and age that is not wise.

We had fun.

Going out with Humphrey is starting to give Alvin some patience, starting anyway.

Humphrey has a couple of favourite bushes that he loves to stop and explore.

Alvin just waits outside with the Moms.

Likely a good idea.

Humphrey seems to navigate the rose bushes but methinks that Mr. Alvin might end up covered with thorns.

Tonight Humphrey will be coming over as his Mom has her dance class.

 

This morning as I was sitting down at the computer and before I placed Mr. Alvin’s blue blanket on the floor beside me.

Alvin “whined.”

His way of telling me that he wants/needs the blanket.

I guess he figures when I sit down – down goes the blanket.

Sorry, buddy.

I am not fast enough.

 

Well almost time to go downstairs and grab the lunch etc.

I love that no boots, big mitts/gloves, heavy coat and scarf are required to go outside.

Just shoes and a light jacket.

YAY, SPRING.

I am so grateful that we have different seasons.

I also noticed in my little garden in the backyard that some of the plants are already up and green.

So happy about that.

 

I hope that you have a wonderful Monday.

Go outside, smell the fresh air and maybe go for a walk.

Enjoy NATURE.

Always a good way to start, take a break or end the day.

Maybe you are retired and can do all three.

I have started to go for a walk on my morning coffee break.

Feels so good.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who are retired …..

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 27th day of February, 2019.

TO BE minus 3 – 4 today.

Welcome to SPRING.

For one DAY only.

This would be my one day only …..

A GIRL CAN DREAM, CAN’T SHE?

How about on this dreamy Wednesday we take a few minutes and close our eyes and dream of spring.

Dream of brown bunnies sitting on the grass in your front yard.

Dream of tulips blooming in your flower beds.

Dream of buds on the trees.

Dream of all of wildlife babies being born and the cuteness in abundance.

Dream of walks with only a light jacket and shoes on.

Dream of NO SNOW.

Dream of plus temperatures.

JUST DREAM.

 

Happy Wednesday Everyone.

Did you close your eyes yet?

Have a wonderful day.

 

Special Hello to: my friends near and far.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 26th day of April, 2018.

Another gorgeous day on the way.

Am loving these sunrises.

Alvin is sitting at my feet on the rug that is under my office chair.

He certainly does not do this very often.

I have his blue fussy blanket beside him to lay on but he has chosen … okay spoke too soon.

He is up and on his blue blanket.

We are enjoying our walks and the path that we take is slowly starting to dry up.

Last night the geese were out in full force around the lakes (more like ponds).

We walked virtually right by them both ways on our walk and Alvin did not stop to look nor did he bark.

The geese ignored him, as well.

Seemed strange to me.

Guess everyone had their own agendas.

 

Our friend Teddy will be coming over to spend Saturday with us while his parents go to their farm.

It will be a fun, energized day.

Lots to do this weekend.

Put away winter and take out summer clothing and shoes and such.

Wash down the deck.

Perhaps bring out some of the patio furniture.

But it may be too early …..???

 

I still cannot believe that Alvin did not at least sit and watch the geese.

When he was a pup and we used to walk over by the big lake – he would sit and watch them for hours at a time.

He was enthralled with them.

Did not bark – just watched them.

Perhaps those were the first geese that he had ever seen.

Those were the days.

Oh, when my baby was a baby.

He may be older now but he remains my little pup.

 

I have to listen out the back door as from the office I can hear what sounds like a bark from a smaller dog.

Just wished people would treat their dogs and cats and pets with better respect.

Perhaps the owners should be left outside day and night, summer and winter.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

Wearing capris today …. living on the edge.

Perhaps will wear a light jacket, though.

Not quite time to wear short sleeves outside in the morning.

 

Have an awesome Thursday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….

Always, Carol & Alvin

Story Line by line – September 6, 2013

Chapter Two:

September 1, 2013

“Alvin, you found me”, I cry as my heart and soul are filled with a gratitude magnified by the love I have for my friend and I know we will find our way together.

September 2, 2013

There is silence between us – no words or barking – just silence in knowing that as long as we are together we will figure this all out and get back home where we belong and we continue on our way side by side.

September 3, 2013

“So me Alvin, what now?” as I search his body to make sure that he has no wounds and give him hugs ¬†and wished that the fog would lift so that I could see where we are going.

September 4, 2013

“Well Mr. Alvin, I guess we had better get moving so maybe we can eventually walk out of this fog and actually find some help” with this Alvin begins to move forward slowly and we are on our way.

September 5, 2013

I have no idea how far we have walked or where we are but I know one thing it is getting colder ….. freezing in fact.

September 6, 2013

Thank GOD, Alvin has a fur coat and that I had not cut it recently but me on the other hand, I only have flip flops, cotton capri pants, a t-shirt and light jacket; the jacket hadn’t really been needed that morning but I needed a place to put my keys and poop bags for Alvin; my keys?
