Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 28th day of March, 2017.

Another beautiful morning here in Edmonton.

So nice to be able to wear shoes and a light coat/jacket.

Alvin and I are enjoying our walks in the evenings.

So nice not to have to worry about ICE and COLD.

We are meeting up with folks that we have not seen since last fall.

 

This morning Alvin up early as ever and afterward we hit the sofa for about one hour.

I fall into this dream sleep ….. what an odd dream.

One of my old co-workers was in my dream from Regina.

For some reason in the place that I lived there was no power.

Strangely it was off.

Only one room had lights.

I could not find my purse or anything and the time was passing quickly for me to leave for work.

Only I had no money or fare for the bus.

All of a sudden I was in a restaurant and my old friend “R” was there having lunch with a couple.

Makes no sense.

Finally it was 10 minutes to the time that I was supposed to be at work.

I would be late.

There was a bit more to it ……. but that is the just of it.

Most times when I wake up my dreams are only a feeling; I do not remember details.

This is odd.

 

Well now it is time to go and last up the shoes and don my jacket as it is time for work.

I have lights, I have my purse and bus fare.

Oh, what a strange dream.

 

Have an awesome Tuesday.

Special Hello to: my sister and my daughter ….. two VERY important ladies in my life.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 2nd day of June, 2015.

It is overcast and raining.

YAY, water for our lawns and flowers and CROPS, of course.

Last night on our way home from our walk, and the delivery of invitations to a “Steeped Tea” party that I am hosting later in June; I decided to stop and pick up the mail.

Now most times all there is in the mailbox is flyers, and the occasional piece of actual mail.

This time there was a key to the bigger mailbox.

The ones that hold parcels and special items.

I was stumped as I could not think of anything that would be coming to me.

But the Universe and one of my dear old friends had something else in store.

So I took the key and opened the mailbox.

There was a huge box inside.

My heart stopped.

It was not my birthday ….. I had not ordered anything.

So I carefully with one hand holding Alvin (who was ready to get home), and a bag with invitations and the mail in the other …. removed the parcel from the mailbox.

The parcel was addressed to both me and Alvin ….. our first parcel together.

Ah …..

Then I quickly checked out the return address to see it was from one of my dear friends that we had recently reconnected via Facebook.

She had mentioned about sending something but I had forgotten about it.

So exciting.

Once I removed Alvin’s harness …. threw off my flip flops and put the “flyers” down …. into the kitchen to grab some scissors to open the package.

What could it be?

I opened the package to find ……..

Isn't this the cutest leash holder ever ..... the puppy looks just like me Alvin.

Isn’t this the cutest leash holder ever ….. the puppy looks just like me Alvin.

Addressed to me and Alvin and Alvin's first parcel .....

Addressed to us both and Alvin’s first parcel.

Well I must tell you Mr. Alvin was pretty excited.

As was I.

Did I mention that I have the most thoughtful, wonderful, amazing creative friends on the planet?

Thank you my friend “M” …… I could not be more tickled to receive such a beautiful gift.

You are so talented ….. we love it.

Alvin was pretty excited, too and says “thank you very much.”

I have just the place for it and it is perfect.

Special Hello to: my friend “M” ….. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 15th day of October, 2014.

What a gorgeous day yesterday was …… sunny and warm.

Alvin and I enjoyed a lovely walk around the lakes in our neighbourhood.

So wonderful and peace.

That is what we all need is peace.

Peace in our relationships.

Peace in our place of employment.

Peace within ourselves.

Peace in our everyday lives.

There is so much chaos in our lives.

We need to find that peace.

We need to live that peace.

The peace is positive.

Positive is always good.

Last night that walk was just what the “Doctor” ordered.

Also I had a phone call from a dear old friend.

Someone I have known for over 40 years.

We shared current news.

We supported each other.

We laughed.

It is always good to have those conversations.

I felt so good after that call.

I would say that last night was a great evening.

So find that peace and live in it.

Have a great Wednesday.

Special Hello to: my all my friends new and old ….. you are the best.

Always, Carol and Alvin
