Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 10th day of June, 2018.

The sky is filled with rain clouds, the trees are swaying in the wind and the sun is desperately trying to peer through the darkness.

It has been raining for a few hours and the pavement is wet, the grass is happily smiling a rich green, the trees are singing for the rain as they are moving about in the wind.

I can hear the rain drops coming down to the ground.

We needed the rain, the moisture, that balance.

 

Last night as the dark clouds filled the sky and the odd rain drop began to fall; I decided to move my flower pots into the protection of the house.

I could not have every pot in total cover and not that I wanted to as they need that glorious nectar that falls from the sky.

So they still receive the moisture but are protected in the event of hail and strong winds.

I noticed that some of the flower petals had fallen off and were covering the soil inside the pots.

What can you do?

 

We are going to visit a friend later this morning rain or shine.

So hopefully it is not pouring although I can carry my large umbrella and Alvin can walk close beside me.

He really needs a summer rain jacket.

He has one but it does not really fit him anymore.

At least it is not cold outside and we can always dry off later.

 

What are you doing today?

Is it raining where you are?

What do you do on a raining day?

Stay inside?

Go for a walk?

Read a book?

Write a book?

Watch a movie?

Eat popcorn?

Go shopping?

Do housework?

Hobby/craft time?

Go through closets?

 

I hope that wherever you are that you are enjoying this day.

Perhaps it is a work day for you or perhaps a day of leisure.

No matter what … enjoy.

Take in the sights and sounds around you.

Hold them close.

Appreciate them for what they are ….

Happy Sunday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister …. who is one of the best joke tellers I know.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 9th day of July, 2015.

It is another glorious morning here in Edmonton.

Me and Alvin hit the pavement/grass for a wonderful walk this morning.

Oh, it felt so great.

I think we should rework our morning routine and walk.

One man was about, and was wearing a down-filled jacket …. oh, that must have been warm.

I feel energized.

Mr. Alvin is napping…..

With the heat of the past few days a morning walk is perfect.

I love walking behind Mr. Alvin as he sniffs about ….

My favourite place to walk is by the lake….

So he had his nose into the grass as he walked about.

Walking behind him and watching his little wiggle made me smile.

Oh, he is so darn cute …… I love me Alvin.

I cannot think of a more perfect way to begin the day than to be out walking with me Alvin.

I love saying “me Alvin” …… it sounds musical to me.

Well it is almost time for me to leave for work……

Always fun trying to figure out what to wear on these hot days.

The office is generally cool/cold and then sweltering on the bus ride home.

Oh well ….. I am grateful to have air conditioning at work and grateful to have a ride home where I have air conditioning.

Tonight some friends are coming for iced tea ….. I am trying to replicate that drink from our tea party.

Wish me luck.

I hope that you all have an awesome day.

Remember to hydrate on these hot summer days.

Drink lots of water …….

Special Hello to: my friends all over the world …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
