Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to “snow covered rooftops and vehicle windshields” on this Monday the 8th day of September, 2014.

Not that I was surprised or anything but perhaps a little disappointed that Mother Nature decided that we needed to have that white stuff at the end of the first weekend in September.

All things considered it is okay.

I know that it will not stay.

It will go away and come again another day.

I just hope that it is later.

Yes, I know I am rhyming ….. pretty good for 6:30 on a Monday …….

Oh, silly me.

There was a bunny curled up on the front lawn this morning …. still brown … no white patches that I could see.

Poor little guy (actually not so little) must have been cold after a hot summer.

Perhaps it was refreshing…..

I always have wondered how even on a minus thirty day they can be out hopping about ….

Just makes me cold to think about them.

I know that they are suited but still I worry.

How are you this extra cool morning?

Ready to turn on the furnace.

I am going to try and hold out for a little bit.

Seems strange to turn on the furnace only a couple of days since it was 27 degrees celsius ….. (it was that warm here on Saturday).

There are lots of blankets for the puppies to curl up in and of course, they have there fur coats on …..

They will be warm do not worry.

So I guess it is almost time to go to work.

I hope that you have a wonderful Monday.

Thank you for reading my blog ……. I so appreciate your sharing your precious time with me.

Special Hello to: all those folks who read blogs and who write them ….. we do make a difference.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 9th day of April , 2014.



Last night it was RAINING.

YUP, actually raining …… I think SPRING is here.

I saw a rabbit ….. on the weekend ….. it had huge patches of BROWN.

I think SPRING is here.

Sunrise earlier and sunset LATER ……

Oh how wonderful …..

I think SPRING is here.

During our walk last night …. picked up trash along the way.

Time to get our neighbourhood clean and shiny once again.

I think SPRING is here.

Snow is almost melted …… muddy everywhere.

If we follow the signs …. guess what?

I think SPRING is here.


Have a great great day.

Special Hello to: all those lovers of Spring ….. it’s here.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 8th day of October, 2013.

I had another amazing weekend and start to the week.

Every day that I wake up and see the leaves still on the trees, green grass and bare ground, I am so grateful.

Just to be able to enjoy this wonderful weather each day.

Last night after Alvin had his supper, and before I had mine – we went for a walk around the lake in our neighbourhood.

What a gorgeous evening.

I could still smell the faint fragrance of the roses that are near the entrance to the park around the lake.

Such a smell….

Oh, it takes me away to the most lovely place on earth.

Always remember to take in what nature provides us with each day.

Whether it is the sound of geese honking as they are starting to prepare for winter.

Whether it is the smell of that last cut of grass.

Whether it is the leaves rustling in the breeze.

Whether it is kicking up the leaves as they lay piled up on the ground.

Whether it is watching the rabbits hop by and noticing that they are still mainly brown.

Whether it is just being grateful to be able to see all that natures provides.

I know I am always grateful for everything that life sends my way.

So on this Tuesday …… take a look around and enjoy.

Special Hello to: lovers of autumn …

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 26th day of August, 2013.

Wow, sure is noticeable that we are approaching the latter part of the year.

The sun does not even begin to think about rising until after 6:00 a.m.

Must be nice, I think.

My favourite season is fast approaching – FALL.

I love the smell of the air, the colours of the leaves on the trees, and just the way that it makes me feel.

OH and the smells of autumn.

Whether it is the smell of pumpkin or cider or apples.

Working in retail and especially in a store that is all about FRAGRANCES and SCENTS.

It is noticeable so much earlier than Mother Nature’s gentle and sometimes not so easy nudge.

I love watching the rabbits begin to turn from brown hues to white.

I love hearing the geese honking as they start making their migratory journey with the little ones all grown up.

I love walking and enjoying the slight crispness to the air but not cold.

Do you have a favourite season?

So on this Monday morning I hope that you are enjoying the weather and the season wherever you are living.

Have a great great day.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog, it means the world to me.

Special Hello to: all those lovers of FALL ….. it is almost here.


Always, Carol and Alvin



Thought for the day…….

Fall is officially right around the corner.

This Friday, September 23rd marks the first day of Autumn.

The forecast is for high 20’s ……

Happy Autumn to you all.

This is my favourite time of year.

I have the wreath on my door ….. with all of the beautiful reds, oranges, browns and yellows…..

I love the colours as the trees change over.

The palette is amazing.

Mr. Bunny is still brown so that is a good thing.

I gauge the impending “white stuff” by nature and rabbits are a great indication.

Have a great day.


Always, Carol

P.S. have to go and remove the covers from my flowers.  It was forecasted to freeze last night and did not.  YAY.








Thought for the day……

Good Morning …… as our summer weather and plans are winding down …… …….

I noticed that the leaves on some of the trees have turned colours and fallen off.

First sign of autumn or fall….

Pretty soon those brown haired “bunny” rabbits will start to turn white.

Nature’s way of preparing us for what is to come.

Or at least showing us that it is coming.

I have also noticed how much more “sleepy” I have been as of late and how many of my fellow human beings are feeling much the same.

Also we are eating more……

Isn’t Mother Nature wonderful?

Tired and eating more.

What a combination!

Oh well, I love this time of year and even more as we get into the fall season.

I wish that we would have a long, long fall this year.

One where we can enjoy long walks without those little skeeters bugging us ….. LOL

One where the air has a slight coolness to it but warm enough that you only need a sweater or light jacket.

One where you can still sit outside on a lazy morning and drink your coffee or beverage of your choice and just enjoy the majesty of the day.

One where you have time to get all those outside chores done before …….. you know what arrives!  I choose to keep that six letter word to myself.

Yes, the one that begins with the letter w and ends with the letter r …… LOL

One that you can just simply enjoy for several weeks…..

I hope that you all have a great day.

Always, Carol

Enjoy the weather and get outside as much as you can………..
