Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday July 2, 2016.

Another bright and sunny morning although there are some clouds to the south.

I think they are forecasting occasional showers for today.

Me and Alvin had a wonderful Canada Day.

We both were startled by a loud crash when someone in the neighbourhood fired big fireworks.

I had closed the window earlier because there were smaller ones going off.

Thank goodness it started to rain and put an end to the fireworks.

I doubt very much that they had permission to set them off.

Thank you Mother Nature.

 

There is a bit of a cool breeze coming in through my office window as I key these words.

I am also reinforcing some buttons on a couple of new tops that one of my friends gave me so that they don’t come off and get lost.

One is a deep purple and the other is a deeper khaki limey green – both which go with a flowery cardigan that I own.

Lucky me.

I love hand me downs ….. I remember as a little girl when boxes of clothing would arrive from our cousins.

My sister and I used to love trying the clothes.

Our Mom made most of our clothes when we were small but as the boys started to come along she just did not have the time.

She also spent a lot of time out doing chores and working on the land.

I definitely did not have the time to sew on top of looking after the small ones, cooking, cleaning and other chores.

Thank goodness my sister was only 18 months younger and was a huge help with most things.

I remember we would have the odd battle but I do believe it was out of frustration as we had huge responsibilities as young ones.

We did love to go to school and even though we missed more than we went our grades were not reflective of that as we felt as though it was a holiday, it was fun.

Well enough down memory lane.

Time to get these buttons tightened and get downstairs and have my breakfast and then COFFEE.

Mr. Alvin had his breakfast earlier at 5:00 a.m.

 

We want to wish you a great day.

Special Hello to: all those children who grew up before their time …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Happy Wednesday May 2nd, 2012 ….. it is so wonderful to have light outside before leaving for work in the morning.

I so enjoy this time of day (once I get over the initial shock of getting out of bed).  LOL

I have learned to be a morning person because I love so much about this time of day.

In the summer, the birds are singing, the colours of the sun as it begins to rise in the morning sky …..

The smell of the early morning ….. all of the sights and sounds that you only have at this time of day.

The dew on the grass as it sparkles in the morning sunshine.

I also wanted to mention that if you have access to SKYPE, please use it…. it is such a wonderful tool to connect people.

It is the next best thing to being there.

Last night I SKYPED with my cousin Janice who lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

We talked and laughed and laughed and talked …. about our current lives and about past family…

I love talking with her so much …. she is one of the best things from my childhood.

I have so many fond memories of growing up with my cousin, Janice and her family.

Thank you Janice for that lovely conversation …..  🙂

GO SKYPE… and have that conversation with your cousin, friends ….. all the people that you miss, and want to connect with …..

It is easy for the most part (I am by no means a computer junkie).

I hope that you are enjoying your Wednesday wherever you are on this wonderful Earth of ours.

Life is meant to be lived and share …..

Special Hello: to my cousin Janice and thank you so much for the lovely walk down memory lane and chat about the now.

Always, Carol and Alvin
