Last Half 2022 – August

Good Morning ALL! I hope that you are doing great. See we made it to the weekend. I am excited as tonight I am hosting a get together with a couple of friends. We are doing potluck so it will be interesting to see what the girls bring. I am contributing egg salad, salmon, buns, carrot sticks, dill pickles, fruit sangria iced tea, peach pie and vanilla ice cream. I was going to “cook” some things and then thought against it with the heat in the house. Who wants to be sweating while they are making food. Not me. So that is what I am putting out. Truly it would be a meal in itself. But I am hosting so I wanted it to be extra nice.

We are heading out for a walk in a few minutes. I can feel the sweet coolness of the breeze wafting in through the open office window and the quick strong coolness coming from the fan blowing in the hall.

I think because it is Friday and almost the end of August, that I will share some flower pictures. Flowers of mine and of friends from this summer. We all need more beauty in our lives and what better than from nature herself.

Happy Friday.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus, possibilities and coffee.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning ALL! How are you this fine FOGGY here in Edmonton morning? Alvin and I are doing well although he may say something different as he is squeaking by the office door. He is getting pretty used to me jumping every time he makes a sound. My fault not his. There has been some thick fog out there this morning although it has dissipated somewhat already. I am feeling more back to my old self this morning. It is not the end of the world if we do not go with this roofing company. Sometimes if we get a “bad feeling” or experience doubt it is better to just walk away. Both myself and my neighbour had those feelings. It was not just the feelings it was the information as well. Anyway, we are on the search for another roofing company and we will find the one that is right for us. Right credentials, right products, right price. We will secure the best company for the job and for us.

Yesterday we had quite a lot of rain in the afternoon. Alvin and I managed to get a beautiful walk in over my lunch break. We even saw some of our friends over the course of our walk and stopped for a little chat. We made it back home with minutes to spare so not late for work. My flowers are doing great with all of this moisture, I think that they grew overnight. The front flower bed is coming to life and the colours are beautiful. Even my snapdragons are all starting to come up or at least I believe it is them. I love flowers, the colours and the scents.

Life is continuing along. Not much new. Just chugging along. Experiencing life as I should. Trying to keep the positive thoughts flowing and remembering that “thoughts do in fact become things.” I know this to be true.

I have recently changed my thoughts to ones of retirement, being mortgage free and new shingles on my roof. Likely would be a great idea to make a vision board to help me in my new vision.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Almost time to head downstairs, get on that pot of coffee and put on some music. I love to start my day with music now that I can.

Continuing to live each day with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love and gratitude.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

P.S. one of my neighbours spotted a pelican in one of our park “ponds” / “lakes.” I did not think we had them here in Alberta but apparently we do. I cannot wait until I see one.
