Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 21st day of October, 2015.

Another gorgeous morning …. no rain, which is good.

Only a handful of days left until Halloween.

The house is decorated inside and out.

Bought “treats.”

Likely not the best decision I have ever made …. just have to keep those hands out of the candy bowl ……

Well here we are in the middle of autumn.

Sadly most of the leaves have fallen or were BLOWN off of the trees.

I must say that the ones remaining I am thoroughly enjoying …. love those rich warm colours.

Most people have been taking advantage of this great weather and getting their yards prepared for the next season.

I did mine a few weeks ago now …. only had to rake about 4 times …. but it is good exercise.

Our fall has been so gorgeous ….. some wind and the odd rainy day but overall beautiful.

Walks with Alvin at night … all I can say is that I could just keep on walking.

I want this to last forever.

But sadly I know it will not.

I do worry / think about global warming and hope that governments and citizens will start to be more accountable.

Well here it is almost time to leave for that old bus …. actually most of the buses seem relatively new …. so that is good.

The construction carries on in our surrounding neighbourhood and throughout the city ….. everyone taking advantage of this weather.

Good for business, I guess.

Okay …. enough thinking and time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you have a great day.

Take advantage of this day and go for a walk.

Take your puppy or a friend …. just go outside.


Special Hello to: all my fellow inhabitants of the planet Earth – let us be better citizens, please.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

WHOO HOO ….. what a gorgeous weekend and morning …. today is Monday, April 23rd, 2012.

Today the citizens of Alberta go to the polls to vote for our provincial leadership.

I hope that everyone goes out to vote.


Yesterday I was reminded by my dog Alvin to be MORE PRESENT and to LIVE IN THE MOMENT.

It is funny that a creature that cannot communicate by our traditional standards …. can teach you so much.

My grand-puppies, Elton and Penny had spent Saturday night with us, and yesterday morning as the night before the three of them seem to have energy to burn as they raced around the living and kitchen.

A little jump here and there as they slid on the rugs/mats by the doors.  So cute.

Grabbing a bone from each other and running …. playing.

It is funny that whenever we were on the sofa or in bed …. that Alvin would make sure that he got as close to me as he could ….. you could not place a hair between us ….

It was a great weekend for me.

I had coffee with my good friend G, had walks with Alvin, raked the back yard, did some laundry, did some cleaning and spent time with my Elton and Penny  and of course, Alvin.

I am grateful to have had the weekend at home …. the whole weekend… outside job to go to….. it was great.

It was funny ….. after Elton and Penny had gone home yesterday morning …. my friend was already here for coffee …. when Al decided that he wanted up onto my lap…..he usually only does this when I do my morning writing before breakfast ….

So I picked him up and he looked around and then snuggled onto my lap…. I guess he no longer wished to share his Momma or at least that is what I felt he was thinking.

Well here it is almost time to leave for work …. Monday.

I hope that each and every one of you have the best day ever.

Special Hello to:  every pet owner …..


Always, Carol and me Alvin.
