The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? Another dreary looking morning out there. We were outside a short while ago and it was nice but before that I could see my breath. We received a fair amount of rain yesterday and everything should get very much that beautiful green now. We will however need some sunshine and that according to the forecast is in short supply over the next week. We had a decent sleep last night. Lights out at 10:00, Alvin was next up at 4:18 and then 5:39 so all in all not bad. He seems to be doing better since I completely cut out human food a couple of days ago now. He has not been leaving behind a “lovely fragrance.” LOL.

If I strain hard enough I can almost see the sunrise.

I am slowly but surely getting the garage cleaned out and disposing of items. Another item was picked up last night. So exciting to meet new people and to have my garage almost bare. What a great feeling. Next to get through those containers in the basement. Actually that would be a great job for the evenings when the weather is not great for walking. Note to self.

I am so grateful for my life. There are moments of imperfection but so many more of utter perfection and delight.

Can you believe it is 63 days now until my 65th Birthday? WOW. Still shaking my head in disbelief, 65. Whoa.

This post will be short as I cannot bring any words of wisdom or funny stories quickly to mind and soon shall be time to start work. Yes and time to plug in the coffee.

I wish you a great day.

Happy Tuesday.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus and possibilities.

Always possibilities …….

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 6th day of June, 2015.

It is a beautiful morning here in Edmonton.

The sun is shining and there is a breeze, one minute.

The next it has clouded over a bit with a breeze.

I am in the throes of preparing for my friend’s Birthday party.

Just a few things to finish up ….. mainly housekeeping items.

My flowers out front need “WATER” …….

I am the host.

Yes, I am ……

I love PARTIES …… organizing …… decorating …… baking ….. whatever is needed.

Mr. Alvin is all relaxed and lying on the floor in front of the office doorway.

Oh, how calm, cool and collected he is.

What a guy.

I went to a neighbour’s birthday party last night and met a bunch of new people.

Always nice to meet new people and hear their stories.

Oh my gosh, I need COFFEE …… have to wait until 10:00 ……

Okay deep breath …… breathe.

John Legend is singing in the background …… “All of Me” ….. one of my favourite songs.

Best lyrics …..

Well I hope you all have a celebration today whether it is a birthday or just the fact that you are alive.

There is always something to celebrate.

Have a great great day.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. we “gotta” SKYPE soon ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 26th day of October, 2014.

The sky is partially in cloud cover but I do see Mr. Sun starting to come out.

We had a great day yesterday with our Open House.

Some of my co-workers and neighbours dropped by.

We sold some jewellery and had some refreshments and had some great conversation.

Doesn’t get better than that for a Saturday.

I love the simple pleasures in life ….. good food …… good company and great conversation.

A good laugh makes my day.

So just putting on the finishing touches before leaving for the store.

Sundays are always fun …… lots of people out shopping.

I love meeting new people.

So on this Sunday I hope that life finds you in great company eating delicious food and sharing a laugh or two.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to: all the ladies who came over yesterday for our Dear Stella Open House.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 27th day of May, 2014.

Wow, four glorious days left in May, 2014.

It has been raining here off and on over the past couple of days.

We surely needed the moisture and the smell of rain is glorious.

I am very grateful for the much needed moisture.

Our grass most especially in the back yard is so nice and green.

……………………..     ………………………….

Well this morning has me thinking about the neighbourhood cleanup that I am organizing for this coming Saturday.

My mind is running amuck with things to do and hoping that I have everything in order.

There is a good group and some new faces coming out for the event.

I am drawing the map of the cleanup area this evening so I can assign areas.

At least that way nothing gets missed and I know where everyone is located.

The new faces: these great volunteers are pretty much all new to this area, and isn’t that wonderful that they are the first to volunteer, just as I was when I moved to this neighbourhood.

So exciting ….. meet new people and have the area cleaned …… perfect combination.

My goal in all of this was to make people aware and hopefully we will get noticed on Saturday and bring attention to the garbage that litters our streets and parks.

This is something for everyone to take note of ……

I want people to take pride in their neighbourhoods and if we all help out what a gorgeous planet we will have …..

I keep thinking one drink can, one coffee cup, one cigarette package at a time ……

Maybe you can go out and organize a neighbourhood cleanup in your area.

It is a great way to meet new people and get exercise and keep your “hood” clean.

Even if you are not in an organized cleanup ….. always carry a small bag with you and pick up those unwanted items.

Better yet do not throw anything on the ground …. that is what garbage cans are made for ……

Special Hello to: all those people out there who take the time to make this planet a better place for us, for our pets, for all the flora and fauna.

Always, Carol and Alvin
