Thought for the day …..

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

 

COUNTDOWN: 60 Days to 60

Today is Thursday June 15, 2017 and it is the 56 day until my 60th Birthday.

Been thinking again ……

 

“Time is the most valuable commodity on Earth for every living creature, for all plant and marine life, for every particle of dust.”

It truly is ……

We may think it is water or money or food.

But “time” is by far the most valuable.

 

Enjoy your time.

Each and every second.

Every moment is important.

If you have a blow-up or blow-out or moment of despair ….. just let it go.

Get over it and regain your right self and get on with living your life.

That is what I constantly work on ….. even when I have a moment or three at work ….. I get over it.

Because nothing is as important as living and enjoying your moments on this Earth.

 

Once you get older you will realize this about time ….. I am almost sixty and I know this to be for sure.

 

Always, Carol

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 17th day of February, 2017.

Well it is Friday and almost the weekend and a long one at that….. so happy.

I am looking forward to three days at home.

The air felt cooler when I opened the door this morning for Alvin to go outside.

Definitely cooler than the past few mornings.

Still much warmer than most winter mornings.

We have been really lucky with weather and hopefully that will last.

Is this evidence of global warming?

I would suspect so.

 

The sunrises have been so colourful the past few mornings.

Love clear skies so that you can actually see the sunrise.

The purples, pinks and yellows are incredible.

Looks like the most beautiful painting ever.

 

I woke up on the sofa from an odd dream this morning.

I dreamt that I was with my sister and I think at our Grandmother’s house.

Someone had a truck.

There were large pieces of wood and odd pieces such as benches, garden tables, wooden flower pots.

She grabbed this nice wooden bench and ran off.

I didn’t know what to do so I grabbed a couple of flower pots.

It was really strange.

Perhaps my sister can figure this one out.

Oh, by the way Mr. Alvin has continued his 4:00 a.m. rising.

Not sure why.

Perhaps I should participate in some manner in the talks about “Daylight Savings Time.”

Really not sure why we really have to have a different time than others or the other way round.

Definitely conversation worthy.

 

Well almost time to hit the road.

Definitely going to wear a heavier coat this morning.

I did wear boots yesterday as I just could not bring myself to wear shoes.

One never knows.

 

Happy Friday to You All.

Enjoy the day.  Spread some kindness to every living creature you encounter today.

Special Hello to: my sister and I have a question for her …. did your son, my nephew ever receive the card that I sent to him?  I mailed it one week before his birthday.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 27th day of July, 2016.

Sun up …. shining brightly and there is such a delightful coolness to the air that Mr. Alvin wanted to stay outside but his Momma needed to be in the house.

He is curled up on the end of our bed ….. his second favourite place in our house.

I cannot believe how quickly time flies in the morning.

It is less than 15 minutes until I have to leave for work.

Thank goodness I am showered and dressed ….. would be a funny …. perhaps more a dreadful sight to see me running down the street in my nightgown (not full length, cause it is summer).

Oh well, we have to laugh, right.

How horrid would life be without laughter.

I like to laugh at myself and I believe it is healthy.

We all should have some humility and to be on the humble side is always better.

Just two more work days after today until my vacation begins, I am so excited.

I plan to go on some adventures with Mr. Alvin early in the morning while the air is cool.

How exciting.

So I guess it is almost time to go for now.

I hope that you enter this day with a giggle or three.

I hope that along your way that you give selflessly to another living creature.

I hope that when you close your eyes to go to sleep that you are at peace with the world.

Happy Wednesday.

Special Hello to: all the women in my life – thank you ladies.

Always, Carol and Alvin
