Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of July, 2015.

WOW, another bright, sunny, breezy morning here in Edmonton.

It is a glorious morning.

When I looked out at the front and back yards this morning I realized that I did not mow the grass.

I was so concentrated on the inside yesterday I forgot about the outside.

Perhaps after supper will have time to give it a quick hair cut.

Doesn’t take long ……

The flowers are looking awesome ….

It was so nice to have the rain ….. they do love it fresh from the heavens.

BUT today is a great day because my daughter is coming for a visit.

YAY ….. I love having her over …..

I am not going to tell Mr. Alvin just yet as he will get too excited.

When I tell him he will sit at the window and watch for her car.

He knows her car.

He will jump off the chair.

Run to the back door.

Look out the back door (which has long window).

Usually bark as he wants to go out and greet her.

Then go and wait for her to come in through the garage at the back of our house.

He is too cute.

I am almost too excited to write …. okay I am …. gotta go and get the coffee ready and stuff.

I hope that you all have an awesome day and have had a productive day with time to relax.

Last night was awesome we had a walk and then watched a movie between making some necklaces.

YAY …..

I am babbling ……

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to:  all those Moms and Daughter out there.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, the 1st day of August, 2014.

My first full day of vacation.

I was able to sleep in for a while this morning and that was nice.

Now to mow the back lawn and then give Mr Alvin a hair cut …. it is so necessary and then a bath.

The sun is shining.

Despite all the speed bumps on the road for our family these past few days we will endure.

We have our health and are together.

I am bound and determined to keep positive and find the silver lining in each situation.

I am grateful that we are all together.

I am grateful that we are in good health.

I am grateful that there is food in the fridge and that we have a fridge.

I am grateful for the walks I had last night with the puppies.

I am grateful for today, tomorrow and yesterday.

I am grateful for my life and yours.

I am grateful that we have each other.

Happy August 1st.

Happy Vacation to Me.

Now back to work…… mmmmmm

Special Hello to: everyone who is taking a break from work …. enjoy.

Always, Carol and Alvin

My thought for the day……

While I was out to  mow my front lawn, I decided it would be nice to mow the lawns on either side of mine.  My neighbours, of course.

So I did, mowed and raked it all.  Good feeling to do a bit of “manual labour” and will be a pleasant surprise for my girls.

So “My thought for the day” is this:  whenever possible do something nice for someone else.

They will be grateful for your kindness and you will have done a good thing.

Doing good things when not asked to do them …. doing them just because is one of the greatest things you can do.


Enjoy your day.  You will only have one chance at this day.  Make it great.

Always, Carol

P.S.   The sun is shining here in Edmonton and Alvin is “quiet” – ready to start vacuuming ….. isn’t life grand.
