Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 7th day of July, 2018.

One week into July, 2018.

Up early this morning as Master Teddy is spending the day with us.

Outside the air is a bit cool which is refreshing.

Windows open to take advantage of that coolness.

Yesterday was a HOT one.

We managed to get through it.

 

Was grateful that I was able to pick up groceries on way home from work last night.

Also grateful that our office closes early at 3 p.m. on Fridays during the summer months.

Still made it home close to regular time in carpool.

 

The sky has the most glorious looking marshmallow fluffy white clouds dotting the powder blueness, this morning.

Okay, perhaps that is a mouthful, but oh, so true.

 

We went to bed early as I am reading one of the books in the series of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series.

Such good books.

You truly feel like you living in Botswana, Africa.

With the majestic landscapes and friendly peoples.

 

Do you ever feel like you are all over the place?

That is me this morning.

I had a good sleep or perhaps should have had .. but the heat plays havoc with one’s sleeping patterns.

Still feeling a bit sleepy but perhaps a nap later.

It is Saturday after all.

I know once I get into the swing of things …. like laundry, making breakfast, coffee, Teddy’s arrival etc. …… I will be AWAKE.

 

I do remember a small piece of a dream from early this morning.

I was going to cross a busy street and there was a light.

On the other side were a bunch of people that I knew …. seems like they were saying good-bye to someone.

Beside me out of nowhere appeared a big black dog.

He had a collar and seemed to be friendly.

I wanted to grab his collar to keep him safe from the traffic.

When the light changed to GREEN and WALK, he seemed to know it was time to walk.

He stepped out onto the street and took a few steps, and before I could even take a step.

He was back beside me.

It was at that moment that I turned around a saw a giant grey WOLF not far away from us.

In that split second I glanced up and noticed in the other direction at the gas station, there were several large grey wolves.

All that I remember was people screaming across the way and the big black dog had got between me and the wolf.

Next thing I know I am out of danger but see that the big black dog is on the ground.

He is not moving.

I think that he is dead.

Woke up.

 

Time to go.

Have an awesome Saturday.

Special Hello to: my sister, our lives, hey.  Looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 1st day of March, 2018.

No additional snow as yet this morning, thank goodness.

Feels a bit cooler than yesterday morning but not FRIGID.

Alvin and I have been so enjoying our walks on our new temporary route.

So good to get out and be able to walk without worrying about the ice and the salt.

They are forecasting snow.

On the first day of March, it gives us all hope that spring is close by.

Next weekend our time changes, we spring forward one hour.

The days are noticeably longer.

It is actually light on my bus ride to work.

 

I am inspired by reading.

Reading gives me insight into other places, peoples and situations.

Whether fiction or non-fiction.

Reading builds up my vocabulary.

Gives me food for thought.

Reading has to be one of my favourite things.

Pick up a book today or even a magazine or newspaper and read.

It will open doors and help you in so many ways.

Let me know what you are reading this day.

I am reading The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series by James McCall Smith.

If you have not read any of his books, now would be a good time.

He writes about this woman and she is the best, charming and funny.

A must read.

 

Well time for this gal to hit the road to catch the bus for work.

Have an awesome first day of March.

Remember read something today.

Even,  a newspaper article.

 

Special Hello to:  all those people who love to read.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 13th day of January, 2016.

Today marks the 51st Birthday of my youngest brother “T.”

Happy Happy Birthday Little Brother.

I cannot believe he is 51 ….. seems like only yesterday he was a baby.

He was the sweetest little guy you could ever imagine and has grown to be a sensitive lovely man.

The baby in this photo turned 51 today...January 13, 2016.

Well mid week ….. weather nice ….. temperature mild ….. feeling good ….. life is great.

 

Last night before bed I decided to pull a book from my “library” and read one of my favourite authors.

His name is Alexander McCall Smith, he is from Scotland.

I believe that I have almost every book he has ever published.

I love the charm and wit of his stories.

They take me from wherever I am to the far reaches of the global.

My favourite series is the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

If you have a chance to read these books, I believe there are 7 in the series, please do so.

They will make you laugh and sometimes cry.

Anyway I read the first chapter in one of his books before turning off the light.

Next thing I woke up to go to the bathroom and saw that it was 4:55 a.m. – which is time for us to get out of bed.

WOW, I did not even wake up at all during the night.

Slept right through.

I might doze on the bus ride to work, though……

The night went quickly.

 

Well here we are almost time to grab my lunch, give Alvin some fresh water and get the outer garb on and head out to the bus stop.

I hope that you have a great Wednesday.

Take time to read a book …… always time well spent.

 

Special Hello to: my baby brother …. Happy Birthday.

Always, Carol and Alvin
