Thought for the day…..

Good Wednesday Morning and Welcome to the 5th day of June, 2013.

It is a gloriously beautiful morning here in Edmonton.

Earlier when Alvin and I were out for our morning stroll the air was filled with the smell of slightly fresh cut grass and there was a crispness surrounding us.

The birds chirped and sang their songs ….. a bunny hopped by and disappeared into a neighbourhood on the other side of the lake.

As we walked the sun rose higher and higher those brilliant colours filling the morning sky.

Truly the early morning is so great.


So my thought for this day is this:  if your pet could talk …. so that you could understand him/her…..what do you think they would be saying?

I can only guess about the words and thoughts that would be flowing from Mr. Alvin.

Somedays it would be “Ah, come on.  Please play with me.”  or maybe “quit being so chintzy with the vegetables” and of course I am more than generous.

He is quite spoiled…..which is likely not a great thing but I look at it this way.  My daughter was spoiled with whatever I could give and do for her (which wasn’t lots by today’s standards).

Oh well, I can only imagine what he would say.

Likely somedays he would just be laughing ……

I know that his sneezes are when he’s not getting his way ….. or he wants something faster than I can deliver.

Maybe if we pay closer attention to what is going on we could figure out what they are thinking.

I love my Alvin no matter what he thinks or does.

He is so cute.  One quick story.  Several weeks ago I slipped on some ice ….. sprained my knee …. I went to physiotherapy and was given exercises to do which I have been doing ….. anyway some of them I do on my (our) bed ….. every time I move the pillows to lay down and do them …. he jumps up … walks over to my face …. licks it …. and then snuggles right close…… same thing every time.  So cute.  Ah, my boy.  He loves his Momma.


Well time to fly here.  Work, you know.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to:  pet owners ….. love them as they unconditional love you …..


Always, Carol and Alvin





Thought for the day…..

Good Monday Morning and Welcome to the 13th day of May, 2013.

Wow, almost at the midpoint of May.

Are you having a great month of May thus far?

I must say that I am.

The past couple of weeks have been chalked full of excitement.

– first neighbourhood trash pickup

– fell on the only piece of ice left in Edmonton, and now I get to go to physiotherapy for my knee ( never been to physiotherapy )

– got rid of the yucky snow mould and leaves that blew in from all across the neighbourhood on both front and back yards

– brought out all of the deck furniture

– enjoyed my first cup of coffee on the deck with my daughter and the puppies (no coffee for the puppies)

-cleaned out winter clothes and brought back summer

-made jewellery with my daughter

-wrote on my blog and in my journal and in my “writing book”

-enjoying the season finales of all my shows

-enjoyed the finale of Survivor and I will not divulge the winner’s name

-had the best Mother’s Day

-having a blast on the morning after ….. that would be today.


So that has be the month thus far for me.  I know that I have missed some things but that is life in between two jobs.

Also coffee with friends in there, as well.

So have a great day.

Gotta run …. my early start day.


Special Hello to:  SUMMER


Always, Carol and Alvin
