It is a NEW YEAR.

Hello Monday morning.

I enjoyed, we enjoyed a pancake breakfast with our girl yesterday.

Of course, Alvin did not eat pancakes although he really wanted to have some.

He did have some banana.

We had a great visit and even had time for a game of sequence and a game of JENGA.

Alvin and I enjoyed a walk after the visit.

We even had a visit with one of my neighbours as we passed along their home.

 

Yesterday my sister, one of my longtime friends and a new friend down the street, all celebrated birthdays.

I spoke to my sister on the telephone, my friend from back and I exchanged long emails catching up and the neighbour down the street, I walked over with a small gift.

February has been chalked full of birthdays.

Every single day had a birthday.

Busy month.

March is another busy month coming up.

This feels like a poem kind of morning.

Something to provoke thought and realization.

I am eternally grateful each and everyday for my life.

Would I change things, some things, perhaps.

But at the end of the day, it is the sum of all the parts, good and bad, that make us who we are.

 

I would like to share a poem that I wrote several years ago.

*******************************

“ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE”

There are many mornings when I rise,

That I draw a sigh and am grateful.

Am truly grateful for all that I have and all that I am.

I realize that no matter what, I am blessed.

Blessed with the realization that all things are possible.

I haven’t always been akin to this way of thinking.

But I would say that I have always been a positive being and a “hopeless romantic.”

Some days it is just a matter of putting one positive thought in front of another …

No matter what anyone thinks, life is work.

The work does not always require physical force but always requires “thought.”

Using your brain.

I believe that all things are possible.

Looking back over my life, I would tend to agree.

Think about it!

“All things are possible.”

I wish each and every soul, every being that I encounter on my life’s path; a great life.

I wish that for every boulder in the road that you are able to get over it or around it and come out for the better on the other side.

I wish that no matter what life may bring to you, that you are loved.

That you are able to find a way, your way, of course, but a way to be in every day, joyful and in good health.

May love fill each second and abundance fill each day.

Happy Monday.

 

Always, from me and Alvin …….

 

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Well today is Saturday, January 04, 2020.

I love writing those numbers.

2020.

Feels futuristic.

We were outside a few minutes ago in the backyard to pick up you know what!

Alvin’s little parcels of love.

The air was warm and the sun is just coming up.

 

YAY, it is the weekend.

Once I have written this post, had a shower and breakfast; we will pop over to the Vet and pick up some food for Alvin.

There be laundry to do, floors and bathrooms to clean, walks to be had and whatever else I find the time to do.

My neighbours have agreed to help me bring in the cabinet/cupboard from the garage to the basement over the weekend.

Then I will be able to get the basement sorted out.

Now the Christmas tree and ornaments will remain until next weekend but I will have everything else in order by then.

 

Everyday on the news and on social media we hear stories and see photos of the massive fires in Australia.

The loss of wildlife is staggering.

I heard half a billion animals have lost their lives.

This will change the landscape of Australia forever.

My heart goes out to the people and to the animals both wild and domestic.

I know that Canada has been sending firefighters to help as have other countries.

Maybe if we collectively as a planet turn our thoughts to rain; we could bring rain to them.

Hoping for rain but not too much that they then have flooding.

Positive thoughts, positive energy.

Please save AUSTRALIA.

 

I wish you all a Happy Saturday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 4th day of February, 2014.

Today my thoughts have been all about being positive.

Thinking positive thoughts and feeling positive.

Whenever anything opposite bubbles up, I will resend it out with a “glass half full spin.”

“Grey skies are going to clear up – put on a happy face.”

That is a line from a song ….. makes sense.

If we put only good out to the Universe then only good shall come back to us.

Do you know those days when you felt like you had the world all wrapped up in a gold box?

On those days you thought only good things, felt only good things and received only good things.

I am also a realist so I know that sometimes there are less than perfect things that happen.

But that is okay as long as you remain firm in your “happiness” and keep feeling good.

So on this Tuesday – have the best day ever.

It is brrrrr cold here in Edmonton.

After Alvin had his breakfast and I opened the door for him to go out …. he sniffed the air and backed away from the door and ran back into the kitchen.

It wasn’t until after my breakfast that he reluctantly went out.

I will tell you it was a quick trip and he ran back to the house with lightning speed.

Oh, my Alvin.  I love him.  He’s so cute.

Keep warm my friends.

Keep smiling.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. and my brothers……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, the 26th day of March, 2013.

Wow, spring is now upon us.

YAY.

 

So how are you today?

What are you thinking about at this very minute?

Do you find that when you are thinking great thoughts that somehow “not nice ones” seem to sneak in?

I find that from time to time.

So what do you do?

Personally, I totally change the positive thought that brought on the less than nice one …..

I find that different thoughts change the flow.

It does help.

Or do something physical …..

Most of all ….. breathe deeply.

There are all sorts of things that can help change the negative thoughts.

Can you imagine what kind of world we would have if every single being on this planet ….. focused on and thought positive, good, happy thoughts.

It would be incredible.

We would feel the positive energy flowing through the air.

Perhaps if we start here with you and me ….

Start at this very moment and let us see how far we can spread this good energy.

Mmmm,  breathe in and out.

Feel the love.

Think of your favourite things …. of your favourite people ….. places……..fragrances and aromas.

Feel the warmth.

Feel it deep down in your heart and soul to the tips of your toes and back.

Have a great day my friends.

Let us make this the best planet in the solar system.

Thank you for coming with me on my journey.

It is great having company.

Special Hello to:    “YOU”

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
