Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning,

Happy Saturday.

We were up early and then hit the sofa for some extra zzz’s cause that is how we roll.

At 7:46 a.m. the sun is just beginning to pierce the horizon and the sky is begin to lighten.

I love sunrise.

Alvin just let out a huge sigh as he lays on his blue blanket beside me.

Always close and evidently not pleased at the moment.

What a guy.

Last night as we were leaving the house for our walk …. some friends were walking by.

Jack (little doggie friend) and his Mom.

So we joined them for our walk and enjoyed their company.


Today is a very special Saturday.

Today two of my most favourite people on the planet celebrate their 11th Wedding Anniversary.

I remember their wedding as though it were yesterday.

The day was similar in temperature perhaps a bit cooler.

There was sunshine and blue sky.

I remember standing behind them as they stated their wedding vows.

Barely holding back the tears and smiling at the same time.

Then they were married.


Their wedding photos were taken down in the River Valley a short walk from where they were married.

The trees were bare, stripped of their leaves from the wind and weather.

Steps, so many steps leading down to the valley.

Not great for high heels …..

As the photographer (a school mate of the bride) snapped photos; I thought how much it reminded me of a scene from days of old.

The forest …. the trees, the darkness in the valley …..

Anyway it was very cool and a day to remember.


Happy Anniversary to my darling daughter and sweet son-in-law.

May the years ahead treat you with kindness and respect.

May you have good health, great joy, much love and laughter.

May abundance be with you.

May you celebrate with love each day of your lives.

Dreaming always and realizing those dreams.

Have a great day my loves.


Some flowers for the day.

With Love, Forever and Always,







Now time to get this show on the road as my darling daughter will be joining me

this morning for a pancake breakfast.

Time to shower and get laundry on and make those pannie cakes.


Always, Carol & Alvin






Thought for the day….


Welcome to Thursday, July 19th, 2012.

The skies in Edmonton or at least by my house are partially overcast …. so happy that I can see blue skies under the light cloud cover …

It rained again last night.

I always wonder when they are making the long range forecasts which “models” they use because ours was supposed to be hot and dry.

It has been hot but certainly not dry.

I love looking out the window at the sky.

There are so many shades of blue that appear to my eye and also pinks and oranges and yellows.

My favourite times to look up at the sky are early in the morning just as the sun is rising and then again at night when the sun sets and the stars are visible.

There is something about the sky ….. I would love to be an astronaut …. but perhaps I was at another time.

I am thankful for the rain as it has helped combat the dry and I hope that those people who have wet basements and such are able to get them dried out and fixed up soon.

Here are a couple of photos.

"Summer Sunset"


Sunset at the lake …. nothing like sunset in the summer.

Walking bridge flooded

Well almost time to go.

Early this morning as the Edmonton Capital Ex Parade is this morning so in order to get parking for the day …. have to go extra early.

Going to work not the parade.

If you are going …. enjoy.

One of these years I will attend the parade.

Posted a couple of photos and will do more later.

Thank you for indulging me …..

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: ¬†all the photographers out there …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
