Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 22nd day of June, 2015.

WOW, I missed until half way through the day that yesterday was the first day of summer.

The sun did not set until almost 10:30 p.m.

How glorious to see the sun setting as the stars are making an appearance.

I most especially love the first day of summer.

Of course, I was in bed by that time.

But I still love it.

Mr. Alvin and I were relaxing after a busy weekend.

We just watched a movie and looked at the Steeped Tea book.

Well I watched the movie and looked at the Steeped Tea book while Mr. Alvin snuggled beside me and from time to time requested to go outside which his Momma happily complied.

It was a glorious day.

We finished it off with a lovely walk.

Even this morning we both are pooped …… another day off would have been nice but not for me …. it is back to work.

The sky was bright and sunny earlier but now has clouded up.

Perhaps I should get downstairs and move my flowers about …… too much water ……

I hope that you all had a glorious weekend.

I hope that you enjoyed the longest day of the year.

I hope that you laughed and had a great time.

To my friend “M” …. thank you for your comments …. “Yes,” I am and I will.

Special Hello to: all my friends and family for your generous support of my blog … thank you for reading.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 4th day of September, 2014.

Just starting to get light out at 6:27 a.m.

Ah, the warm/cool days of autumn are upon us.

By the calendar or rather Mother Nature not officially until near the end of September.

I love this time of year and wished that it would last until at least January.

The temperatures are comfortable for a sweater or light jacket most days.

You can still wear sandals but light socks in a shoe is good as well.

The leaves are starting to turn colour and before long they will be a mass of oranges, reds and yellows.

Alvin and I are starting to prepare for our annual family photo.

I already asked the photographer and she said “whenever you like.”

Are we not the luckiest people to have a resident family photographer.

So on this September Thursday I hope you are well.

I know you are likely struggling to some degree to get up the past few mornings ….. you are not alone.

Unless you are a true morning person …. you have likely been wishing to stay snuggled under the covers.

Oh well, this too shall pass.

Our bodies will acclimate to the changes …. our minds will follow.

SO I hope that you have a great day.

Take a walk and enjoy nature.

By the way, our roses down the street by the entrance to the lake are still blooming …. oh they smell divine.

Love them….. definitely in my top ten loves.

Special Hello to: my family and friends back in Regina – miss you all.

Always, Carol and Alvin
