The New YEAR 2022

Good Saturday Morning ALL! Well it is bright and early. I hope this finds you well. First Alvin had me up at 4:30 to go outside for a pee and for his glucosamine chew then back to the sofa we went. Next we woke up just before 6:00 a.m. to see flashing lights out front of our house, I jumped up and there was a first responder vehicle down the street from us. I gave Alvin his breakfast and went out to the backyard with him as it was just beginning to get light. Dark clouds lining the sky and WIND, was thinking we may blow away, lol. Back in the house, I watched out front at the flashing lights. Then the lights stopped flashing and I realized it was an ambulance as the attendants opened the side of the ambulance and then got in and left the scene. At that point, I thought that we would lay back down on the sofa for some more zzz’s because really who needs to get up at 6:00 a.m. on a Saturday with no good reason. Well that lasted for about one minute and then I decided to just get up. I am wide awake. So I put on some coffee, dried the dishes that were in the sink and put them away, changing the bedding on our bed, am doing this post now and then I am going to do some other things before going to Gillian’s for coffee at 10:00 a.m. Kind of cool to be up and already checked off some things off my list at this time of the morning. The dark blue clouds are beginning to dissipate and I can just barely catch the sunrise. I will say that the wind is drying things up and perhaps I brought this on myself as I wanted so desperately for the backyard space to be dry for Alvin and after my tumble last Sunday. By the way, I am fully recovered. I am so grateful for that.

I can smell the coffee downstairs waiting patiently for me to go down and grab a mug. I am really excited to be up and about this early. It has been awhile since I stayed up at 6:00 on a weekend. Funny thing is I didn’t even turn the lights out until after 11:00 p.m. last night.

Sometimes we do not realize the direction we are going until we are on our way. I guess that is the case for this Saturday.

I was reading some affirmations from my SECRET SUPER APP and earlier I happen to see: Your thoughts become things and you just have to keep thinking those thoughts and “that thing will become your reality.” After all, that is how I moved to Edmonton and bought this house. I am not sure that it would have happened had I not been filling my head with thoughts of owning my own house in Edmonton near my daughter. I remember while in Regina – checking Real Estate ads in Edmonton. Thinking I could afford this house and I could afford that house. I put the wheels in motion and what happened, I got a house near my daughter and son-in-law. So I know it works. I just have to start thinking that one thought of what I want and keep going toward it. I know it will happen.

Well I should go for now. I hope that you have an awesome Saturday.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus and possibilties.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. there are always possibilities if we focus on gratitude.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 2nd day of May, 2016.

Day #2 of May ….. it is a beautiful morning.

The sun is rising and the sky is clear.

Temperature forecasted to be 26 degrees celsius.

Crazy for the first week in May.

Tomorrow they are saying 28 and Wednesday 27.

Sounds like it will be time to turn on the AC for Mr. Alvin.

Today I will just close the blinds to the south and turn off the furnace.

I think it is safe to say that it won’t be “cold” until fall.

 

Question:  When someone asks you questions about someone else – do you answer those questions?

If you know the answer – do you always share?

I was just thinking that even though I may know the answer, if I believe the person being asked about would not give that information, then I will not share.

Common Sense or Common Courtesy or perhaps a bit of both.

I just think sometimes people get too nosy.

Sometimes it is just conversation.

BUT.

There are some things that people like to keep to themselves.

Some folks are just more private than others.

If someone tells me something not to share, I do not know.

Anyway food for thought.

 

I hope that you have an awesome day.

My daughter says Sir Elton continues to heal each day and is doing very well.

They had company on the weekend (friend with a doggie) and he was played out.

But then again he is almost “13” or almost “91” in human years.

Can you believe it?

Alvin is over 49 ….. that is crazy as he still acts like a young dog not a pup but a young one.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you all have an awesome Monday.

Stay cool …..

Special Hello to: my sister ….. HELLO

Always, Carol and Alvin

In Your Heart

In your heart lies the secret to your life.

In your heart lies the beat to every song and every dance.

In your heart lies the dreams for the future, and the ones forgotten.

In your heart lies every moment, every tear, every bout of laughter, every everything.

In your heart lies the gold that shines in the sunlight.

In your heart are the stars that shine like diamonds, blinding in the night.

In your heart is the strength to go where your body must follow.

In your heart is the soul that reminds you to live, love and laugh.

In your heart is mine beating like a reminder to all that we shared.

In your heart ……

In your heart I long to be…

In your heart I wonder…

In your heart I hear…

In your heart I feel….

In your heart I live, I love and I remember.

In your heart, for my heart.

My soul I do surrender.
