Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 24th day of February, 2015.

It was a lovely bright sunny and warm day in Edmonton yesterday.

Today will  be a bit cooler and possibly snow.

It is late winter – early spring.

That’s our weather.

It changes faster than we can change our socks.

But alas it makes for great conversation.

That is something we North Americans like to chat about all day long.

Whether it is around the water cooler or on a coffee or lunch break …

While sitting on the bus going to and from work.

While waiting in line at the grocery store.

We discuss how much snow we got, how much rain.

Who had the most.

Who did the  most shovelling.

No matter where we are it is the one thing that brings us all together …. a common thread.

Because no matter where you live on this planet there is weather.

There are rain storms, snow storms, ice storm, dust storms and sand storms.

There are hot sunny days.

There are below cold days.

There is every type of weather imaginable.

Mother Nature PMS …. ing.

Smiling all the while…..

Anyway no matter what it always give us food for conversation.

I love that we have less than perfect weather because we appreciate the warm sunny days all the more.

So when you are gathered around the coffee bar enjoying that cup of coffee and discussing just how cold it is … remember there is someone around the corner discussing just how hot it is…..

Enjoy your day and your conversation.

Special Hello to: my family and friends all over the world.

You are my sunshine ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 17th day of July, 2014.

It is raining softly here in Edmonton slowly cleaning away the smoke and ashes from the air.

We need the moisture and a cooler day so win-win for us today.

What a different summer this has been for different parts of the country …. for all of North America.

Flooding, drought, fires, hurricanes and tornadoes.

I wish all my fellow beings safe passage from one day to the next.

Well I am just enjoying a quick cup of coffee before I head out to the dentist and then to work.

I am so grateful for this moment and to be here with Alvin.

Every extra moment I have with him is special.

He is my boy.

He now knows how to ask “please” when getting a treat.

So cute …..

I say to him “Ask nice.” and he lifts up his paw and gently paws against my leg and sometimes just in mid air …. if I am not standing right next to him.

I think if our precious four legged friends can ask why is it so hard for the two-legged ones to do so?

I think it is important to teach our young ones to be polite and have manners.

Asking please and acknowledging thank you is a must.

So on this great Thursday let’s use our manners …… people including myself really appreciate them.

I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

Special Hello to: all my family and friends back in Saskatchewan, I hope that you are doing okay after all the flooding.  Thoughts with you all.

Always, Carol and Alvin
