Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 9th day of May, 2015.

This morning is bright and sunny and breezy.

Three mornings ago that was not the case.  Just got my photos downloaded, so thought I would share.

Makes me so grateful that the snow came at this time of year when the sun is higher in the sky, and feels so much warmer …. melts that snow so fast.  We needed the moisture so we, I am most happy.

In photos over the course of the day on Wednesday, May 6th – starting at 5:00 a.m. until I arrived at home just after 5:00 p.m.

I could not believe how much wet heavy snow had accumulated over the course of the day.

Wished that I would have taken a photo of the trees…… green new leaves peeking out from a cover of snow.

The snow was so heavy it felt like lifting a load of bricks.

It was so much fun shovelling. AS you can tell I could only manage a small amount of shovelling on the deck.

Poor Mr. Alvin did not know what to do.  Thank goodness he is great at jumping.

The photos above with the ice cream truck were the next day.  Not much snow left.  I thought it was so funny that we had snow on the ground when I heard that magical music that could only be the ice cream truck.  I was shocked.  They only have a short season to earn some money so I totally understood.

Happy Saturday to everyone.

Now better get to things …….

Special Hello to: all my friends and family …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 30th day of April, 2015.

Here we are on the last day of April ….. summer right around the corner.

I have spent the past couple of days home sick so it is great to be feeling better.

I will miss me Alvin ……

They have been forecasting rain for the past few days but alas no moisture.

Perhaps because I am going to work today it will rain.

I am going to take my umbrella, and be prepared.

The house is still with the only sound being the click clack of the keys as I press down on each one of them.

Almost sounding musical.

Perhaps this stillness is a good thing.

I am able to hear my thoughts with no distractions.

Alvin just got up from his position on the rug outside the office and moved into the shadows.

He likes to be in the corner for some reason.

He has his way.

Soon I shall be downstairs donning my jacket and shoes …. grabbing my purse, lunch and umbrella and on my way to catch the bus.

I hope that you are feeling great and are on your way to a wonderful day.

Almost May and in a few weeks I can plant some flowers.

One of my favourite times of year …. planting of flowers.

Okay …. time to go….

Be happy ….. do your thing ……

Special Hello to: my friends back in Saskatchewan.

Always, Carol and Alvin
