Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to January 1, 2019.

There is a wall or a bank of dark blue clouds half way up the horizon and clear sky above that …. so beautiful.

I have not seen this in a long time.

There was more snow over night.

There is a crescent shaped moon hoovering in the morning sky.

There is something near it but not a star.

Could it be the space station?

I suppose so.

I am not certain if it is visible to the naked eye.

These are the views from my office window as I key these words for this blog.

A beautiful peaceful morning.

The first day of 2019 and the last day before heading back to work.

It will be shock to both Alvin and I as we have been staying up late, getting up late, he has been eating later.

Tonight will be to bed on time so that 5:00 a.m. does not totally shock our bodies.

 

Alvin and I enjoyed a walk in the early afternoon followed by a visit from one of our friends who lives nearby.

I had decided to leave the tree and decorations up so that she could see them.

Most years they are up and down before we see each other.

Not this year – I left the tree and decorations up and they will come down today.

Lots to do on this first day of the New Year.

Back to the regular routine tomorrow.

Back to a new office as well tomorrow.

 

Just curious did you stay up until Midnight to bring in the New Year?

We managed to stay until 11:00 and were in bed by 11:20 p.m.

I am pretty sure that I was asleep before midnight but woke up about 1:30 a.m.

 

I used to make resolutions but have decided against doing so the past couple of years or so.

Now I just make the conscious decision to “live my best life.”

I want to continue to be a good person.

Be kind and good.

Helpful and compassionate.

All those types of traits.

I want to continue to be healthy and will walk more, eat less and drink more water.

Try more new things.

Write more …..

 

Well time to get going here.

Nice to see clear morning sky.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.

 

I will not be drinking coffee in the afternoon.

I have totally enjoyed these 11 days off from work.

I spent the days with friends and family.

Bit of work around the house but mainly just enjoying the days.

 

Special Hello to: everyone, Happy New Year.  Have an awesome first day of 2019.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

PS – warm temperatures today – perfect for a nice long walk.

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 14th day of October, 2018

 

Darkness filled the air earlier this morning when we first arose.

Alvin always the early bird.

When we arose to start the day the sun shone brightly through light cloud cover.

The frost was hard as the grass crunched under my feet and appeared black to the naked eye.

The solar lights that are standing in a flower pot have a thick coating of frost upon them.

The Snapdragons are blooming remaining alive despite a coat of frost.

All things are covered with a covering of frost this morning.

 

With the sun shining the frost will melt.

The grass will return to green.

The Snapdragons will perk up with the heat of the sun.

The solar lights will shine in the sunlight

The frost will disappear from the rooftops and car windows.

 

Oh Sunday morning.

Time to get dressed and start the day.

Thank you Mother Nature for your beauty and charm.

 

Happy Sunday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister on this day.

Always, Carol & Alvin
