Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 3rd day of October, 2018.

Yesterday weather wise was glorious.

The sun shone most of the day.

There was a breeze but did not feel cold.

While I was waiting for my ride to arrive yesterday morning.

I was looking at my tree.

Thinking of how beautiful all the leaves looked as the odd one would come floating down to the ground.

This is what I came home to last night.

My beautiful tree ….. is now bare.

All of the leaves gone in a single day.

 

The largest pile of leaves that I have ever had from this tree.

Usually they come off in stages.

Usually I rake at least four or five times.

Not this year.

 

Oh, so pretty.

I see raking in my near future.

 

Yesterday Calgary and areas south of us received a huge amount of snow.

We, I am grateful that we still have bare ground although we did have a nice blanket of snow only a short time ago.

I am just plain grateful that the ground is bare, my snapdragons are still blooming and I have leaves to walk in and to rake, soon.

 

You never know what is going to happen with Mother Nature.

We did enjoy our walk last night stopping to chat with our friend “P.”

She had unexpected company or she would have joined us for a walk.

 

Well almost time to leave for work.

Wednesday already.

I hope that you enjoy this day.

I hope that if you have snow that it melts so that you can enjoy FALL for a bit longer.

I do not kid myself to think that winter will not arrive before fall ends.

Not here, not in Alberta and not in Canada.

 

Have an awesome day.

Read a book, make some tea, make some soup or perhaps stew and share with a friend.

Have a great day.

 

Special Hello to: my friend “V” who is always creating some wonderful dishes for friends, family and customers.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 10th day of June, 2018.

The sky is filled with rain clouds, the trees are swaying in the wind and the sun is desperately trying to peer through the darkness.

It has been raining for a few hours and the pavement is wet, the grass is happily smiling a rich green, the trees are singing for the rain as they are moving about in the wind.

I can hear the rain drops coming down to the ground.

We needed the rain, the moisture, that balance.

 

Last night as the dark clouds filled the sky and the odd rain drop began to fall; I decided to move my flower pots into the protection of the house.

I could not have every pot in total cover and not that I wanted to as they need that glorious nectar that falls from the sky.

So they still receive the moisture but are protected in the event of hail and strong winds.

I noticed that some of the flower petals had fallen off and were covering the soil inside the pots.

What can you do?

 

We are going to visit a friend later this morning rain or shine.

So hopefully it is not pouring although I can carry my large umbrella and Alvin can walk close beside me.

He really needs a summer rain jacket.

He has one but it does not really fit him anymore.

At least it is not cold outside and we can always dry off later.

 

What are you doing today?

Is it raining where you are?

What do you do on a raining day?

Stay inside?

Go for a walk?

Read a book?

Write a book?

Watch a movie?

Eat popcorn?

Go shopping?

Do housework?

Hobby/craft time?

Go through closets?

 

I hope that wherever you are that you are enjoying this day.

Perhaps it is a work day for you or perhaps a day of leisure.

No matter what … enjoy.

Take in the sights and sounds around you.

Hold them close.

Appreciate them for what they are ….

Happy Sunday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister …. who is one of the best joke tellers I know.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Remember when the sun shines.

Go outside and enjoy it.

Go for a walk with your dog or a human companion.

Mow the grass if you are lucky enough to have a lawn.

Sit on your front porch and enjoy a cup of coffee.

Sit on your deck and read a book.

There are lots of things to do when the sun shines.

Have a great day.

 

Always, Carol
