Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 22nd day of February, 2019.

Yay, it is the weekend.

Weather has definitely been warmer the past few days.

Alvin and I have been enjoying our walks after work.

Last night we picked up Teddy and Aunt J and they joined us for the remainder of our regular route.

Feeling a lot less cob webbed having that lovely fresh air being absorbed through our skin, nose and mouth.

 

Tomorrow is my sister’s 60th Birthday.

I cannot believe we are both in our sixties.

Where has the time gone?

Once upon a time we were little girls.

Our mother made our dresses and everyone thought we were twins.

For the longest time even though we are eighteen months apart – we were practically the same size.

In fact, we had friends and neighbours that the oldest two children were boys, 18 months apart and almost the exact size.

When we were all lined up for a photo we could have passed for quadruplets.

We grew up on a farm.

Surrounded by cows, pigs, chickens, ducks and horses.

There were always animals around.

Oh, we had at least one dog and many cats.

My sister and I loved animals from the beginning with the exception of her fear of birds.

Likely due to the chickens chasing her when she was young.

We worked hard as children on the farm.

Always house to clean and chores to do.

When there was time to play we usually used our surroundings in our games.

Both my sister and I loved school and our grades reflected that love.

Even when we did not live close by we were always in touch with each other.

Long distance.

Over the years we have remained close.

Now our babies have grown and there are grand babies.

She lives in Saskatchewan and I live in Alberta.

We may not chat every day or even every week but we REMAIN ALWAYS CLOSE in our minds and hearts.

Happy early Birthday my wonderful, beautiful sister.

Will chat tomorrow.

 

Well almost time to finish getting ready, last day of work for the week.

Then time to work at home.

 

Special Hello to: my sister, love you my darling.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 8th day of March, 2015.

Wow, what a glorious “spring” morning.

The sun is shining down upon this Earth spreading warmth and light.

The air feels crisp and clean.

Spring is on the way.

How I love spring.

I love the growth.

I love the new life.

I love the smells.

I love the feeling.

I love the early sunrise.

Oh how I love spring.

You just cannot beat the feeling of spring.

When I was young the crocuses would cover the fields in a blanket of fuzzy purple wonder.

I remember the baby calves and pigs being born.

Oh how beautiful those babies were ….. some brown and some pink.

So on this Sunday I look to the feeling of renewal …..

Feeling reborn again.

Ready to face the next chapter of my life.

Decisions to be made …. maybe yes …. maybe no.

I just wish that sometimes my life could be easier….

Happy Sunday everyone.

Special Hello to: my fellow over 55 club ….. with our knowledge, wisdom and work ethics we definitely rock ….

Always, Carol and Alvin
