Second Half of the Year

Good Monday Morning.

The sky is overcast and calling for light rain showers as I ponder whether or not we should walk.

I think when we are ready – if not raining – we shall go.

What a perfectly beautiful Sunday – Mr. Alvin and I enjoyed.

I was putting away the laundry upstairs when I heard Alvin bark from the backyard.

I knew it would not be long before he called …. as I was on my way downstairs to let him him, the front doorbell rang.

Answering the door on the way down I found my neighbours on the other side of the door.

Letting them into the house, I explained quickly as I walked to the back door to let the boy into the house.

Funny how the Universe works.

All weekend I had signs that “great/wonderful news” was on its’ way to me.

My neighbour Jessica said that they had been waiting all weekend for the time when they would both be able to come over to share their news.

They are getting married on October 3, 2020.

In fact, my daughter and son-in-law were married in October.

She said that they wanted to let me know and to invite me to to their wedding.

I was over the moon as I shared about the Universe sending me message all weekend.

They said engaged for seven years and that it was their ten year anniversary so it was time.

I told them how similar their story was to my own daughter.

I feel like their Mom next door.

Such a wonderful young couple.

I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many awesome people.

Young, old and everywhere in between.

I have the best neighbours, neighbourhood on the planet.

Funny how things work sometimes.

So I have a wedding to go to in October, I am so excited.

It has been many years since I attended a wedding.

 

Here are the photos of my backyard sanctuary.

My happy place.

Our happy place.

The place that Alvin and I love to be our backyard and our home.

I love how the sunlight hits in very cool and unusual ways.

What an awesome Sunday.

 

 

Yes, I am writing.

The book is coming along.

Of course, I just started but it feels like I have come so far.

So excited.

I cannot wait for it to be complete so that I can share with everyone.

 

Continuing to live my life with kindness and respect.

I hope that you are surrounded by kindness and respect and pay it forward each day.

We can do this ….

We can get through this…

We can make it happen.

 

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 8th day of May, 2019.

Semi overcast sky this morning with hopes of bright sunshine throughout the day.

No moisture this morning.

 

Last night after work, Alvin and I went for our walk.

We stopped at our friend’s house and watered / checked on her plants.

Plants doing great.

We continued our walk to Alvin’s best friend’s Teddy’s house.

Everyday we pass by and he always wants to go in and almost everyday I say “not this time, Buddy.”

This time, it was okay.

As it would happen Teddy’s Dad was just going into the house from work, and he was excited for us to come in for a visit.

When the door opened – Master Teddy was so over the moon happy to see his Dad, his best friend Alvin and me, Aunt Carol.

While his Dad went into the garage to put some things away, I let the boys out into the backyard.

After all …. Teddy had been holding it for several hours by this time.

I know what that is like for Alvin.

We were visiting when Teddy’s Mom came home.

I do not know many folks who would be happy to see company upon arriving home from work.

These are such lovely, warm and caring folks, all I can say is that Alvin and I are lucky to call them friends.

Teddy’s Dad suggested that the Teddy and his Mom walk us home while he went for a bike ride.

We ended up walking by the big lake/pond north of us.

It was absolutely wonderful.

So many folks out walking with their pups of all sizes.

Alvin and Teddy made new friends.

We met a couple of old friends, as well.

We saw ducks, ducks building nests and muskrats in and out of the water.

The air was soft and warm as it touched our faces.

Perfect outing.

 

Well almost time to leave for work.

Great night last.

Great day on the way.

 

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….. hello my girl.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning Everyone and Welcome to Wednesday, December 12, 2012 ….. only 12 sleeps till Christmas Eve.

If I can count …… LOL.

 

On this mid week day ….. I am thinking about what truly makes us happy, what makes me and you  feel like we could conquer anything?

What gives you that ultimate beyond description over the moon feeling of there are no words?

 

Perhaps we should all think about that for this day and I will give you my answer tomorrow.

 

Have an awesome day …….

Special Hello to:  ALL THOSE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE TRULY OVER THE MOON HAPPY ….. (are you?)

 

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and today is Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012 …… mid week ……

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who take time out of your busy schedules to read my blog.

It truly means the world to me.

I do write for me but I also write because I want to be “read” ……. and I am over the moon with joy.

Everyday I receive email notification that people are reading my blog ….. new people ….. people from all over the world and not just my family and friends but YOU.

I appreciate everyone ….. may you be blessed with perfect health, abundance, great joy, love and wealth.

 

When I was a little girl one of my dreams was to be a writer.

I always loved to read and write.

Never in a million years did I think that I would be typing onto a device that would send those words to the far corners of the planet.

It is so amazing to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING TO REALIZE A LITTLE GIRL’S DREAMS.

Have a wonderful day.

It is raining this morning here in Edmonton.  Mother Nature provided us with a sound and light show through the night ….. followed by rain.

Special Hello to:  YOU …. you rock….

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
