2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you doing this morning? We are doing well. Up in good time for my late shift start for work today. There is a bit of a breeze coming in through the windows but not much. The plan is to have a quick shower after I write this post and go for a nice morning walk before the heat of the day sets in. My “lunch break” due to the late start is not until 3:00 p.m. which will be near the high for today. I love morning walks. There is something about the air, fresh and calm. Perhaps the goslings will be out in sight with their parents. They grow so quickly.

Happy Happy Birthday to my friend Gillian ….. wishing you the most wonderful day. May you be surrounded with love, laughter, great joy, good health and abundance. Happy Birthday my friend.

I cannot remember if I mentioned this to you or not but I noticed on the weekend that NETFLIX has in its’ new releases “SAHARA.” One of my most favourite movies of all time. It stars, Matthew McConaughey, Steve Zahn (love him), Penelope Cruz, Rainn Wilson, William H Macy, Delroy Lindo, Lennie James and Lambert Wilson. The story follows a treasure hunter who partners with a WHO doctor to find a lost Civil War Ironclad Warship in the Sahara Desert with lots of turns and twists. Great Movie. Little bit of everything. I watched it twice over the weekend.

Today Canada Roofers come out to give us our quote. I cannot wait until the shingles are replaced and will be relieved. Especially with summer coming and the possibility of rain storms. We will remain safe and dry with our rubber shingles.

We had a somewhat quite day yesterday. I looked after Humphrey, Bogart and Cynder, went to COSTCO in the morning with one of my girl friends, gave Mr. Alvin a haircut and bath not long after I returned home from COSTCO, did a load of laundry, had supper and we went for a nice walk after supper. My neighbour came home from her weekend getaway to Jasper with her boyfriend. They mowed the grass out front and it looks great. Best it has looked in many years. I guess the fertilizer helped/worked. They sprayed for weeds as well. Trying to get the unruly weeds begone. Watered the flowers as well last night and they continue to look beautiful and my pepper plant is growing.

I can hear the birds singing in the distance. Quiet except for the birds.

The sky appears to be overcast a bit to the south.

Time to hit the shower and get out for our walk. If it is hot at my lunch break at 3 p.m. we cannot walk. Better to get out now.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Continuing to live this life with as much kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love and gratitude as is possible.

I am blessed and I know that ….. with good health, amazing family and friends, a beautiful home, to be employed, and for a great companion Alvin. Each day I am filled with gratitude for my life, it is a good one.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 21st day of March, 2017.

It is dark out at this time which is 6:12 a.m. and I can see the moon partially hidden by some clouds.

Our weather is warming up and after today should be plus temperatures for the next couple of weeks.

Unless the forecast changes.

Which happens.

More often than not.

Oh well, it is that time of year and the weather does change frequently.

Actually I think our weather changes all of the time whether spring – summer – fall or winter.

But that is okay.

 

So Tuesday today.

I am going to run to the nearby Save-On at my lunch break today and pick up bananas.

We cannot be out of bananas.

Mr. Alvin simply will not stand for it.

Which is the plain truth.

So I can always use the exercise and I will take a walk at lunch break.

I always want to keep my boy, happy.

A happy boy is a happy momma, I always say.

It is funny I was semi-frantically searching the house this morning for one of my light fold up bags to take shopping.

You know the cloth ones that do not take up half of your purse.

I looked and looked and looked.

Well I had one in plain sight, yes I did.

Hanging on my office door with some of our jewellery bags in it.

So I emptied it into something else and now I have a bag to carry our bananas.

Some days.

 

Well here it is time to leave for work once again.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Take Care.

 

Special Hello to: my daughter …… thank you, always, thank you.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, the 14th day of May 2013.

As I look out of my office window that faces south I can see the reflection of the sunrise on nearby houses.

It is glorious.

A rainbow of colours.

Sunrises are one of Mother Nature’s most beautiful and amazing sights.

Now that we have moved from waking up in the darkness to waking up and it is becoming light ….. it gives us “steam” for the day.

I know that seeing the sunrise and shine gives me energy and I feel amazing.

While getting ready this morning I noticed a small almost round bead of light on my bedroom wall where there is no light.

I cannot figure out what is reflecting and making this beautiful rainbow bead of light.

It is so pretty and I just stood there …… basking in the moment.

Wondering where did you come from?

Light does make us feel good.

So on this Tuesday the 14th day of May, I urge you to make sure that you get some sunshine.

Take a walk before work, on a coffee break, lunch break, before or after supper ….. just go outside and enjoy.

Put on your sun block and hit the road so to speak.

I know that you will feel better….. light……energy……exercise……fresh air……we are happy now.

Have a great day.

Take care …… see you tomorrow.

Special Hello to: YOU

Always, Carol and Alvin
