Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 1st day of April, 2015.

As we enter the final month of the first quarter.

Now doesn’t that sound all financial-like.

I love April because I love spring.

April is usually the starting point for us for spring and sometimes when March ends …. well you know.

The in like a lamb out like a lion or something like that …..

With the rain last night the air feels cleaner somehow.

The rain has turned to snow and most of the tiny flakes are melting as they touch the ground.

However, there are a few that have banded together and are sticking ….. that can be seen on the grassy areas.

The temperature is cold enough to wear a light winter coat and that I shall.

Oh well, soon it shall be double digits and then summer.

We just have to be patient.

Well I am running just a tad late so better get going here.

I hope that you have a “Happy April Fool’s Day” ……

Life is grand ….. I AM HAPPY …. seems that song by Mr. Williams just keeps buzzing around my head.

It is a great song for that ……. HAPPINESS ……

Special Hello to: all those people who celebrate April Fool’s Day …. be kind.

Always, Carol and Alvin



Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 2nd day of March, 2014.

Wow March already ….. perhaps with it coming in like a lion it will go out like a lamb.

Like the old saying.

Sure hope so.

With it being March the sun is coming up earlier and sunset is later, which is always great.

Soon we will hear the songs of Robins and others as they come back to nest.

Soon the snow will be melted and the grass will start to poke it’s tops up showing us that glorious green.

The trees will be in bud and then voila overnight (or so it always seems to be as of late) leaves appear.

People will be out and about walking.

Children riding bikes.

Me and Alvin will definitely be out and about.

Bless their hearts when I see owners of some of the big dogs in our neighbourhood out walking in this brutally cold weather.

Giving them the exercise they need and so deserve (and fresh air).

Spring ….. oh spring…..

I have mentioned this before in previous blogs but it is worthy of another mention …… “CROCUSES” ……

When I was a child in the spring there would be fields full of them (or so it seems from my memory banks).

They were a purple and kind of furry …. which I always thought was funny.

Oh, spring ….. I can start to plant some flowers ….. YAY.

I was thinking of planting some herbs this year ….. fresh parsley and chives …. oh, how lovely.

I hope that you enjoyed your weekend and were able to stay indoors and have fun with your family.

If you had to venture out, I hope that you stayed warm and safe.

Time to get ready for work ….. yes, I have to go out.

But I am lucky as I will get a ride to work, and then catch the bus home from the mall (shelters there).

Oh, the OSCARS tonight …… I only have seen one of the Best Picture Movies ….. “GRAVITY” ….. so I shall vote for it and for Sandra Bullock, who was amazing.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: my friend “D” ….. my long-time BEST FRIEND ……. hope things are going well back in Regina.

Always, Carol and Alvin
