Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 20th day of April, 2017.

One day closer to summer breezes and flip flops and longer walks with me Alvin.

Yesterday was a total shock as I wore my winter coat and boots and on the way home, I really did not need them.

Last night we went for our walk and I did not even wear a jacket.

Bonus.

So happy for those evenings.

This weather had me wondering what was happening this time last year, and this is what I blogged:

It is overcast but not with rain clouds this morning.

We have wildfires burning to the north and west of our location.

We are in the “area” that could be affected should they not contain them.

Unfortunately with not much snow this winter and although we enjoyed not having to shovel everyday and plough through snow walking and driving …. we pay the price come spring.

It is so dry.

I have started watering my front flower bed that has perennials.

There are a few green leaves on them but I am not sure that they made the winter.

I transplanted them last fall.

I hope so but time will tell.

The lawns are a mixture of brown and green.

I am afraid that without spring showers and summer rains brown will be our reality as it will be too much water to keep them green.

Just a friendly reminder for everyone on the planet ….. please be careful.

Do not throw away that cigarette butt or set off fireworks just because they are pretty.

You might find yourself in the midst of a raging fire.

Let us be careful this spring / summer.

Do your part, please be a good citizen of your neighbourhood and of this planet.

Pick up the trash …… don’t be a misguided inhabitant.

Well it is time to leave for work.

Our office has been cool so it is sweater weather.

Somedays it is warmer outside than in the office.

But on the other hand ….. I would rather don a sweater than the alternative.

Cannot take off clothes.

Have a wonderful day everyone.

 

Special Hello to: my fellow bloggers …..

Thoughts for the day…..

Good Tuesday Morning and WELCOME to February 5th, 2013.

The moon is so beautiful this morning.

I love seeing clear skies in the morning.

For most of the winter our Alberta skies have been overcast so this is a breath of fresh air …. CLEAR SKIES.

Back to the moon, I love seeing how different from day to day the moon appears to us.

I have always loved the sky and have always been interested in “going beyond our atmosphere” and exploring the Universe …. the GALAXY and BEYOND …..

Imagining what or whom might be flying by at anytime …. or the possibilities of what may be.

The beauty of the planets …. the sun ….

I guess that is part of the reason that I have always been drawn to shows like “STAR TREK” and “STAR WARS.”

The moon seems mysterious to me ….. somedays you only see a quarter or it …. sometimes half and then the glorious fullness.

I love watching the skies ….. in the summer I lay out on the deck in the darkness and check out the stars and the moon.

In the daytime I love laying back and watching the clouds as they float by.

We are truly blessed to have such great beauty at a quick glance …. whether in the morning, at noon or in the darkness of night …. it is magnificent.

So take a couple of minutes and look up and enjoy (just make sure that you are not driving / operating heavy equipment.)

 

Special Hello to: all those star gazers out there …..

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
