Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 15th day of December, 2017.

Wow, guess what happened overnight and earlier this morning?

Clear stuff coming down.

Yes, it was raining in the middle of December, 2017.

Kind of scary ….

Sure hope that it does not get colder over the course of the day or the STREETS, SIDEWALKS and ROADS will be ICY.

Be careful if you live in the Edmonton area.

For some reason the morning has evaporated on me and I am running late.

Up on time, not sure what happened.

Last night right after work my neighbour came over and I got a hair cut.

Makes me feel good.

She is quick and GOOD.

Just about the 15 minute mark and even styled.

Amazing.

Then about 1/2 hour later we had coming.

Our neighbour from down the street ….

We laughed and had a great visit.

So a good Thursday night.

Unfortunately we missed our walk so will go tonight for sure.

Well time to go.

Have an awesome Friday.

Take care.

Special Hello to: You ….. it is all about you, today.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 21st day of January, 2017.

It is a gloomy day out there as the air and sky is covered in fog.

Yes, I can only see my garage and one row of houses behind us.

So I can only imagine the highways and in the country.

I guess the temperature must have changed over night.

I am so glad for the weekend.

Alvin has an appointment at noon to have his nails trimmed which he really needs now.

It has been about six weeks since his last trim.

He is impatiently waiting as I want to write this and then have a shower before going downstairs to start our day even though we were up at 5:00 a.m. for his breakfast and bathroom break.

Quietness fills the air and I am grateful for the stillness.

I wish that everyone could/would have a peaceful, quiet, happy, relaxing weekend.

With time for a walk.

Well better get this show on the road ….shower calling ….. laundry definitely calling and soon it will be time to leave for the vet.

Time always seems to go at lightning speed on the weekend.

Have a safe, warm, happy, relaxing weekend everyone.

 

Special Hello to: YOU ….. remember to be kind to yourself….you matter.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Afternoon and Welcome to Saturday the 14th day of December, 2013.

Just over a week now until the big day …. how did that happen?

Seems like only yesterday it was Halloween.

Had to sleep in this morning as I worked both jobs yesterday, and till midnight at the store as the mall had their MIDNIGHT MADNESS.  

I can just barely see some sunlight peering through the blue clouds.

Oh, how I wish that the sun would shine.

Please I hope and pray that moisture stays away for awhile.

I shovelled this morning before my daughter brought Mr. Alvin home …. at the entrance to the garage …. I shovelled Thursday night ….

There is no room to put any more snow.

I am now throwing it between our garages ….

The deck looks like someone threw a snow bomb back there.

The roof tops ….. I hope it melts some before we get more.

But alas there is more snow in the forecast.

But a girl can hope …. and pray …. and then hope again and then pray and WISH.

My sister had a Friday the 13th story, that I just read and I would love to share with you.

My sister and (her son) my nephew were supposed to be coming to Alberta to visit one of my brothers.

She was all ready to go …showered …. makeup done ….. just going to put a couple of things in a bag, and go downstairs to feed the kitties when she heard a SSHHHH ….

Running downstairs to the bathroom she saw that the pipe from the toilet had sprang loose, and water was spraying everywhere.

Spraying her in her face and soaking her from head to toe.

Just like in the movies.

Panicking she called my nephew and no answer.

So she called her boyfriend and no answer, then she called his work number and he rushed over and turned off the water.

She was able to get in touch with her son and found out he had during the night  come down with the flu, and not the kind that you can travel with …. was unable to come to help.

His wife came in with their shop vac so at least they could mop up most of the excess water.

My sister was able to get hold of a plumber recommended by my nephew and he came out within a couple of hours.

She also phoned our brother, and he said the roads were terrible and it was still snowing.

These are her exact words and they are perfect:

My take on all of this …. We weren’t supposed to go yesterday!!!!!  Something not only stopped one of us, BUT BOTH OF US RIGHT IN OUR TRACKS.  Now that’s a message from the universe if I’ve ever heard one.

So true.

See the Universe always tells you what to do or at least points you in the right direction if only you listen.

Thank goodness it was a strong message.

You see the important part of this story is …… where my brother is living in Alberta the roads were terrible and it was storming.  No travel was recommended.  If my nephew had not come down out of the blue with this bad flu and the water pipe had not burst they would have been on the road.  

Thank you Universe for keeping my family safe.

HUGE REMINDER TO LISTEN TO THAT INNER VOICE ….. THE UNIVERSE AND SOMETIMES IT IS AN OBVIOUS PIPE BURSTING OR STOMACH FLU THAT STOPS YOU RIGHT IN YOUR TRACKS.

OKAY, now it is time to check on the laundry and then take Mr. Alvin for a much deserved walk.

Special Hello and THANK YOU to: THE UNIVERSE.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the Day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, the 19th day of March, 2013.

As we approach the official day of spring we are all taking a collective deep breath and hoping that Mother Nature is kind.

We have snow banks on our street that are over my head by several feet.

It is no longer an easy task to shovel the snow from our walks.

The main streets have been cleaned so going to and from work has been relatively easy but in the “hood” …. it is a different story.

Yesterday someone mentioned that by the beginning of April we are to have in the plus double digits.  WOW.

I so love spring.

The sights, the sounds and the smells.

The last bunny I saw was still white and no wonder with all this snow.

Despite everything we are collectively doing to this planet the animals still get it right.

You see during most of January we had mild temperatures, and in February when it was melting the bunnies remained pure white …. no hints of brown.

They know.

So once I see the bunnies starting to turn brown I know that spring is on it’s way.

I love the sound of the birds ….. like robins and long to see a hummingbird.

I love dragonflies and ladybugs…. ooh, I gotta go.

My ride will be here soon.

Thank you to all those people who are reading my blog ….. I am eternally grateful.

I hope that everyone has a great day.

Special Hello to:  YOU and YOU …..

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
