Thought for the Day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 26th day of March, 2017.

The SKY is a beautiful vibrant “baby blue” colour with streams of white cloud patches throughout.

The SUN is shining and I just saw some drops of water dripping from above by the window outside.

YAY …… another fantastic weather day for us here in Edmonton.

Also heard some geese honking as they flew overhead.


Well it always fills me with energy when the sun is shining brightly.

I am so happy ….. I can feel smiles bubbling up to my face.

Yesterday Alvin and I enjoyed the most delicious walk.

On our way home we saw one of my neighbours out in her garage sweeping the floor, of course we stopped to chat.

We had a wonderful visit.

She also does Holistic Healing – something new I learned about her …… we met her while out for our walks.

They have two small dogs ……

Excited as I have agreed to have a healing session this week.

Also great to learn something new.

She does Integrated Healing, Craniosacral Therapy, Lymphatics, Viscera and Energy Healing.

Quite the mouth full.

She has been doing this since 1995 and is certified in all areas.


Well today feels like a pancake breakfast type of day.

Normally I would have eaten already but it will be a bit later this morning.

I always make coffee on the weekends for both me and my neighbour.

She likes the way I make my coffee.

I have a electric coffee peculator.


Oh, yes I cannot forget to run downstairs and grab the clothes that are air drying.

Have some bedding to wash and then all of the laundry is done.

As today appears to be nice I will go out and clean up the trash in the neighbourhood.

I have noticed so much on my walk to and from the bus and also on our walks.


Well I hope that you all are having an awesome day.

Today is going to be …. er, I mean today is FANTASTIC.

Already off to a great start between the sun shining and snuggles with me Alvin.


More drops of water coming from the roof.

Should be able to wear shoes to work this week.


Special Hello to:  my sister, are we to SKYPE tonight?

Always, Carol and Alvin



Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 11th day of June, 2016.

What a beautiful day …… overcast and raining ….. although a few minutes ago the sun appeared to be breaking through the cloud cover.

Oh well, we do need the moisture.

Yesterday was gorgeous.

Another windy day …… seems to be one of those windy spring/summers.


Poor Alvin has been waiting patiently ….

We were up at 5:00 so he could eat and go outside.

Then our usual hit the sofa until later than usual time.

Upstairs showered, gathered up towels and changed the bedding …. now writing and then downstairs to really begin the day.

I was planning to go and pick up the trash on the nearby walkway but picking up wet paper is not fun (or carrying it for that matter).

I was thinking of going out for round two of canvassing for the Heart & Stroke early afternoon (still might be possible).

All of my indoors chores are doable and no excuses.

Isn’t that the way we sometimes do things ….. write the list …. go down the list and put off what we do not want to do at this moment.

I have never minded working hard but somedays just beginning is challenging.

Oh well …… it will get done …. always does.

The canvassing I still have almost three weeks for 2nd and 3rd rounds.

I do wish to mix it up and go out on different days each time.


Well I guess I am procrastinating at the moment …. although toast and honey sounds good about now.

I hope that you have an awesome Saturday.

Just remember do not be too hard on yourself.

Sometimes you can go a thousand miles per hour and the sometimes you cannot.

You have permission …..


Special Hello to: all those folks who volunteer for different organizations, thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
