Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 6th day of July, 2014.

The past two evenings just about the time that I have gone to bed …. the sky begins to light up and the thunder roars.

The wind gets up and then the rain comes down.

Mother Nature sure put on quite the light show last night.

I was very proud of Alvin ….. he did not seem to be bothered by all of the commotion.

I am very lucky as storms do not frighten me although sometimes the end result sure can be disheartening.

I know that some of my friends and family back in Saskatchewan are still dealing with the flooding from the storms of about a week ago.

My heart and prayers go out to them.

Also my thanks to all those people who have gone to help.

This morning the air is cool and it is windy.

Sky overcast looking like more rain for the forecast.

I am just having some oatmeal before I get ready to go to work at the store.

With the sky being overcast it looks like the store will be busy and also today is the last day of our semi-annual sale.

So we will be busy.

I hope that you had a great weekend.

I feel so great that with my daughter’s help we cleaned out “eight” rubbermaid containers from the basement.

Two huge black garbage bags out of the house.

YAY.  Am feeling pretty light this morning.

Good reminder to us all whenever you see someone in need – stop and help.

If there is anyway to help someone – do it.

We need to be better global neighbours.

Happy Sunday All.

Special Hello to: Saskatchewan, my old home province.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 28th day of March, 2014.

How are you this morning?

WE are wonderful.

Up at 5 a.m. with Mr. Alvin as he has this “clock” and then back to bed.

So great to sleep in and now it is time to write and get to work ’round the house.

After breakfast …… get the basement in order.

Put away the last of the Christmas stuff and reorganize all of the “rubbermaid containers.”

YAY.

THE SUN IS SHINING SO BRIGHTLY ….. that makes me so HAPPY.

Hopefully the temperatures continue to go in an upward motion.

So on this Friday me and me Alvin are just hanging out and doing housework until I have to get ready to go to the store.

He will spend the night with his sister so that makes him happy and me feel relaxed that he is not alone.

I hope that you are happy and smiling and that the “sun” is shining down on your part of the world.

Make your life be happy and rewarding and make you spread your happiness and rewards.

Special Hello to: my sister who is back from Vegas and I must chat with her ….. have to hear all the stories and the shopping??

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Saturday Morning and Welcome to the 30th day of March, 2013.

Second last day of the month ….. wow how time flies.

The sun is shining brightly here in Edmonton with promises of more snow to melt.

Most of the snow has now melted from the top of my garage which gives me great relief.

One of the City sanding trucks came down our street just after 5:30 a.m. …… I am not sure why as he did not leave any sand behind.

There are many side residential streets that still have deep snowy icy ruts.

Perhaps this will be the day that they melt, and are gone.

Well what is on your plate for this Saturday?

Perhaps you will be enjoying coffee with family or friends.

Perhaps you will be shopping for groceries to cook that “Easter Meal.”

Perhaps you will be out shopping for that beautiful spring dress or outfit.

Perhaps you will be cleaning the house.

Whatever or wherever you are ….. I hope that you have fun.

Me, well ….

Mine is to continue to clean the “paper” from all over my house.

You know how you just seem collect bits and pieces ….. now they are not laying on the floor or on top of every flat surface.

Most of them are carefully tucked away in rubbermaid containers or boxes.

Sometimes I think that I might still need them …. but in the end they find their way into a blue recycling bag.

So with coffee in hand, I shall tackle my “paper” … one or two pieces at a time and I shall fill yet another bag.

I know that once I am done I shall feel “weightless” …..

So on this day in between “GOOD FRIDAY” and “EASTER SUNDAY” ….. enjoy.

I hope that you get out and enjoy the sunshine wherever you are and we shall, too.  We, being me and Alvin.

Me and My Sister .....

Me and My Sister …..

Easter Bunny visited me and Alvin early .... it was last summer.

Easter Bunny visited me and Alvin early …. it was last summer.

 

Flowers for Easter ..... Happy Spring.

Flowers for Easter ….. Happy Spring

Have a great day …. time to go and take Mr. Alvin for a walk.

Then get to the paper.

Am I procrastinating …. perhaps ….

But today it is my prerogative.

Till tomorrow ……

Special Hello to:   YOU AND YOU AND YOU… Happy Easter.

Always, Carol and Alvin
