Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 26th day of January, 2017.

Does not appear to be foggy outside, so that is good for drivers this morning.

Forecasting 0 degrees for Edmonton today, +1 for tomorrow and +5 degrees celsius for Saturday.

Plus temperatures in January in Edmonton – well that is just crazy.

We are loving this mild weather for sure.

It makes going for walks more enjoyable and allows us to go for walks.

It makes walking to and from the bus actually nice.

A far cry from normal temperatures for this time of year.

So nice and I am so grateful for this wonderful reprieve from “winter.”

 

So Thursday already ….. another week almost over.

It has been an odd one….

You would almost think that there has been a full moon.

But this time … it is just the time of year.

Not much sunlight and despite the warmer temperatures it is still winter.

I think most of us feel some degree of depression at this time of year.

If you feel yourself slipping into ┬áthat place …. go talk to someone.

Talk to a professional ….. always best to seek someone who understands.

Maybe it is a simple as taking a vacation to a tropical destination …..

So many people with varying degrees of depression and other mental illnesses sometimes do not realize or understand that they need help.

Also for far too long those suffering have been afraid or embarrassed to come forward because of the stigma attached to depression and other forms of mental illness.

You are important and if you are not well, seek help.

I can tell you that when the sun does not shine, I can feel the dip in my well being.

I feel less joyful.

I feel less “sunny” and more “foggy.”

I feel less social.

The list could go on.

Take care of yourself.

Ask the questions.

Find the answers.

 

Have a wonderful Thursday.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. time to SKYPE?????

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 19th day of July, 2016.

What a beautiful morning.

From my windows I can see part of the sunrise and that the sky is that perfect light blue BUT ( why does there have to be that word looming over everything ) …???

Well from moment to moment as I was getting ready I noticed that dark shadows or that the sun was not shining as bright.

I guess it could be many things but likely those wretched rain clouds.

Now I certainly do not wish to complain as we did need rain in the spring and early summer but quite frankly some sunshine would hit the spot right about now.

It will not be too long before grass and plants begin to turn yellow.

Although my lawn does not look like it has too much moisture.

Funny thing ….. getting the moisture level just right.

Well I am going to go with Mother Nature knowing what she is doing and leave it at that for now.

I am way too excited to be worrying about that ….

Tonight is the night my company arrives ….. I am so excited.

We are ready …..

Alvin is excited to meet someone new as he always is ….

Mr. Social.

Mr. Community Greeter

Mr. Neighbourhood Welcome Waggly Tail.

Well this is going to be ultra short this morning as somehow the minutes seemed to have evaporated and it is almost time for me to leave the coup.

Work is calling my name once again.

Perhaps one of these days the lotto winning numbers will have my name attached to them.

I hope that you have an awesome Tuesday.

Full of sunshine and rainbows.

They can exist together.

Why not!

 

Special Hello to: my friend who will be here in just a few hours and WELCOME TO EDMONTON.

Always, Carol and Alvin
