Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 2nd day of May, 2019.

Well this is what we woke up to at 3:30 a.m. today ……

Photos were taken a few minutes ago just after 6:00 a.m.

The temperature is to be +10 degree celsius so it will once again melt by the time that I reach home.

Or at least I am hopefully.

The moisture is good.


Sometimes you just feel in your very being that all is being purged.

All the bad stuff.

All the unnecessary junk.

A lightness is in your heart that feels as though life is given a second chance.

Sometimes it does feel as though you have control over life.

Anyway I know I am being cryptic but not my place to give details.

Just so happy that all is well ….


So on this Thursday I am feeling so extra blessed.


Alvin and I enjoyed a beautiful walk last night.

After the bad roads and multiple accidents near and around the City of Edmonton; I did not think that we would be walking.

But the temperature warmed up throughout the day and was pretty much all melted by the time that I got home from work.

We saw a muskrat in the pond by our home.

Swimming away.

We saw a goose wandering about.

A duck enjoying a swim.

One singles were out and about, I guess.

We also bumped into a young couple out walking their pup whom we have met before and pup is almost 17 years old.

Still lots of energy and grit.

We met a young pup named Miso (after the soup).

Miso was so full of energy …. at first Mr. Alvin played and sniffed to get to know the young one.

After a few minutes he was “done” or so I thought and then they were playing again.

I enjoyed this encounter.

Always nice to meet new people and pups.


Well almost time to head out of the door.

My ride came early yesterday with the roads so am thinking the same today.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day.

Happy Thursday.

Remember “gratitude” is the answer.

Yes, it is.


Special Hello to:  all our family ….. near and far ……. we love you all.

Always, Carol & Alvin


Thought for the day…..

OMG what a day!!

It is now almost 4:30 p.m. and I have not accomplished much.

The sky is overcast and it has been foggy most of the day.

Those conditions make me want to lay down on the sofa with a soft blanket next to Alvin, my dog and just sleep or watch t.v.

I did however, get out for a walk and do a couple of “good deeds” while out.

Dropped the flyers off at a friends.  Not sure why they do not get all of the ones that I do, but figured it would be a good thing to share.  Now that is recycling/reusing !

When we were on our way to the lake – came across a poor little animal (believe it was a young muskrat) dead on the pedestrian walk.

It was still there but had been moved so now it is in the south bound lane.  Bless his heart, Alvin didn’t even try to go near the poor little guy.

So when Alvin and I arrived back home, I called the City to have someone come out and take the poor creature away.

It was so cute.  I feel so bad and hope that it did not suffer.  With all of the new resident areas having water features it is not surprising that these creatures leave the “safety” of the water area, and end up in traffic.

I am not sure what I can do about this type of incident but I pray that it does not happen again.

So despite my not getting much done today, I did try and do something good for the environment and for nature…..

Now before supper, I plan to go and bake a chocolate cake.

Oh well, there is always tonight or tomorrow…….somedays it is okay to just be LAZY or just have a quiet day.

You might wonder what the “thought for the day is here”  ……. LOL (next line ….)

I hope that wherever you are ….. that life is treating you grand and that you have a chance to be lazy or quiet ….. do something for someone or the environment…..and eat something YUMMY!!!!

Always, Carol
