Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 2nd day of March, 2014.

Wow March already ….. perhaps with it coming in like a lion it will go out like a lamb.

Like the old saying.

Sure hope so.

With it being March the sun is coming up earlier and sunset is later, which is always great.

Soon we will hear the songs of Robins and others as they come back to nest.

Soon the snow will be melted and the grass will start to poke it’s tops up showing us that glorious green.

The trees will be in bud and then voila overnight (or so it always seems to be as of late) leaves appear.

People will be out and about walking.

Children riding bikes.

Me and Alvin will definitely be out and about.

Bless their hearts when I see owners of some of the big dogs in our neighbourhood out walking in this brutally cold weather.

Giving them the exercise they need and so deserve (and fresh air).

Spring ….. oh spring…..

I have mentioned this before in previous blogs but it is worthy of another mention …… “CROCUSES” ……

When I was a child in the spring there would be fields full of them (or so it seems from my memory banks).

They were a purple and kind of furry …. which I always thought was funny.

Oh, spring ….. I can start to plant some flowers ….. YAY.

I was thinking of planting some herbs this year ….. fresh parsley and chives …. oh, how lovely.

I hope that you enjoyed your weekend and were able to stay indoors and have fun with your family.

If you had to venture out, I hope that you stayed warm and safe.

Time to get ready for work ….. yes, I have to go out.

But I am lucky as I will get a ride to work, and then catch the bus home from the mall (shelters there).

Oh, the OSCARS tonight …… I only have seen one of the Best Picture Movies ….. “GRAVITY” ….. so I shall vote for it and for Sandra Bullock, who was amazing.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: my friend “D” ….. my long-time BEST FRIEND ……. hope things are going well back in Regina.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 23rd day of December, 2013.

Two days until Christmas and one day until Christmas Eve …

I am so excited.

Last night Alvin and I had our Christmas celebration with our friend and neighbour “S” ….

We love her ….. she is a great friend.

She has a cat named Aussie.

We are good friends.

Yesterday the store started out being not as busy as I thought that it would be but after lunch it was busy.

Most people had on their Christmas cheer and were fun to be around and the odd one well …. maybe next year……  🙂

So on this great Monday morning with warmer temperatures on the horizon …… we are happy.

I am ready for Christmas ….

I hope that you are ready.

Remember it is not about the presents but all about being with the people you love.

Sometimes it could be people that you do not even know ….. especially if you are one to volunteer at shelters and soup kitchens.

Wherever you are fill the room with love and kindness and it will be great.

Special Hello to: friends …… you make our lives wonderful.

Always, Carol and Alvin
