It is a NEW YEAR.

Oh glorious SUN, shining down on US.

What a gorgeous morning is upon us.

Bright sunshine and no breeze, not a breath of wind.

YAY.

How are you doing this fine Wednesday morning?

Are you all ready to start the day?

I am up, am ready and once I have my coffee in hand, I will be ready to start this mid week work day.

 

Last night I texted one of my friends.

“Hi, do you have any Palm Bay drinks?  If so, how do you feel about joining me on the deck for one after supper.

I only have one. What a day!”  Going for a walk.

 

She texted back:

“How does 6 work for you”

Me:

“Sounds good”

Friend:

“See you at 6”

Me:

“Yes, you will”

 

Now that is a friend.  No questions asked.

She arrived at 6:00 with a drink in hand.

We sat on the deck and talked about our day.

We laughed and had a great visit.

Just over one hour later, she was on her way home to her family and I was chilling with Alvin on the sofa.

Sometimes you just need a friend and a Palm Bay drink.

Anyone who really knows me – knows this – I seldom drink.

In fact, this one lone drink has been in my fridge for months and months.

I have had beer go “bad” in my fridge.

Fancy that.

 

The point here is sometimes you just need an unscheduled “visit” and a drink.

By 6:00 p.m. last night the wind had died down and it was quite nice out.

We had the protection of the house so that helped but the sun shone down.

After one hour outside – Alvin was done.

Perhaps if he had his friend over and were having a “drink” it may have been a different matter.

Kidding about the drink, I would never give him or any animal, alcohol.

 

So time to grab my coffee and start work.

I am lots to do.

Looking forward to our walks today.

I love being at home with Alvin and having that extra walk each day.

Helps to clear my head and allows me to remove any thoughts that need to be “gone.”

I find walking very beneficial for many reasons.

 

Okay, time to run.

 

I hope that you have an awesome day.

May you have a chance to go for a walk in nature.

By a pond or a lake or even in a grassy park.

Soothes the soul.

I am very grateful to live nearby many great spots.

 

With kindness and respect,

I/We remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Partially okay mostly overcast sky.

Woke to up wet …. must have rained overnight.

I am so glad that I did not over water the flowers on the deck.

Well today is Thursday.

As I look out of the office window I feel that the day ahead is full of possibilities.

Even when there is room for concern – one must stay focused on the good, the positive and the possibilities.

Without that ….. life is pretty crummy, you feel pretty miserable and definitely no where near joyful.

Keep that glass half full mentality and every cloud has silver linings attitude.

We must for our mental and physical health.

Enjoy our life ….

We only have one kick at this ….

 

I love this quote I heard on a morning show that I recorded …

“Limits are for credit cards not people.”

That is absolutely perfect.

Keep that in mind as you go out into the world.

If you are retired or just home for whatever reason …. it applies to you, too.

 

Kindness, generosity, loving and caring attitude.

Warm and welcoming.

All will get you to a better place.

Gratitude tops the list.

 

Life is full of sunshine and rainbows.

I saw both yesterday morning while waiting for my carpool.

A double rainbow ….

 

I wish you a day filled with sunshine and rainbows and the heart to be grateful for them.

Happy Thursday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin
