Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 24th day of October, 2015.

A glorious morning.

Sky mainly clear.

Sun SHINING.

Coffee made.

Sipping on a mug.

Shared a cup already with my neighbour.

Changed begging on our bed.

Getting some things done.

Alvin has an appointment for his monthly pedicure and other personal items this morning at the Vet.

So we will do that once I have completed writing my blog and getting dressed.

Then it will be to the local grocery store and drugstore.

Time for Alvin to have hair cut and another bath.

In between there will be laundry and other household chores.

All the time enjoyed this glorious weather.

Oh how lucky we are to be having this weather near the end of October.

We are very grateful.

I am very grateful.

Each day it is all about being grateful for everything you have.

Even if you think you are stressed at your job there is always someone who would be happy to have that job.

Always be aware when speaking to others.

What is “terrible” to you might be “joyful” to others.

It is all relative.

I am reminded each day of all that surrounds me.

I learn something everyday.

Happy Happy Saturday ….

Wishing each and everyone a great weekend.

Thank you for sharing your time with me.

Special Hello to: my friends near and far ….. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 1st day of June, 2015.

It is bright, sunny with perhaps a slight breeze here in Edmonton.

I had the best Sunday ever …..

My daughter and grand-puppies came over for a pancake breakfast followed by a trip to Dunvegan Gardens.

We were pleasantly surprised to see a line up at the gate upon our arrival.

Checking on-line we saw that they only opened at Noon on Sundays.

So we had a couple of minutes wait having yet another opportunity to catch up, which was fine with me.

We both agreed that walking around the flowers was one of the best ways to spend a Sunday.

The scents were amazing.

I picked up a couple of perennials for my front flower garden as well as beautiful pansies and impatiens and a couple of flowers that do well in partial sun/shade.

Lucky for me, I had bought the exact right amount.

They look so much better than the poor shrubs that had been in that front bed.

Well Monday here I come.

It is promising to be a great day.

I hope that you had a lovely Sunday surrounded by love and laughter.

Perhaps you were out and out picking up some flowers to plant in your garden.

Special Hello to: all my friends near and far ….. you are the best.

Always, Carol and Alvin
