Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 24th day of February, 2015.

It was a lovely bright sunny and warm day in Edmonton yesterday.

Today will  be a bit cooler and possibly snow.

It is late winter – early spring.

That’s our weather.

It changes faster than we can change our socks.

But alas it makes for great conversation.

That is something we North Americans like to chat about all day long.

Whether it is around the water cooler or on a coffee or lunch break …

While sitting on the bus going to and from work.

While waiting in line at the grocery store.

We discuss how much snow we got, how much rain.

Who had the most.

Who did the  most shovelling.

No matter where we are it is the one thing that brings us all together …. a common thread.

Because no matter where you live on this planet there is weather.

There are rain storms, snow storms, ice storm, dust storms and sand storms.

There are hot sunny days.

There are below cold days.

There is every type of weather imaginable.

Mother Nature PMS …. ing.

Smiling all the while…..

Anyway no matter what it always give us food for conversation.

I love that we have less than perfect weather because we appreciate the warm sunny days all the more.

So when you are gathered around the coffee bar enjoying that cup of coffee and discussing just how cold it is … remember there is someone around the corner discussing just how hot it is…..

Enjoy your day and your conversation.

Special Hello to: my family and friends all over the world.

You are my sunshine ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 30th and second last day of July, 2014.

Wow, what a month July has been.

Some rain storms, hot weather, kids moved in, cleaning their house, and I hit 500 followers on my blog.

What a month.

What a great month!

Well tonight we should finish up at the house and the new owners move in on Friday.

My kids lived in their house for seven years.

Moved in July 2007 and moved out July 2014.

Lucky 7’s.

After tonight we will start to get into a regular routine.

The puppies will be happy about that …..

The sky seemed to be overcast earlier and I am quite certain that we saw some lightning flash in the sky during the night.

Alvin woke up and was up at the window barking at something in my neighbour’s yard.

Not sure if a cat got in there or not ….

Well almost time to go to work.

Another day another $1.00 …. isn’t that how the saying goes.

But thank goodness it is more than that…

I seem to use the word t-h-a-t several times in this blog ….. or maybe I use it a lot.

Celebrate being alive on this Wednesday.

Be grateful for all that you have and all that you are …..

May grace and kindness guide you.

I love that Alvin lays outside our room as I type this in his “guard” protector mode.

Or at least it looks that way.

Special Hello to: you all ……. everyone on the planet.

Always, Carol and Alvin
