Thoughts for the day…..

Good Tuesday Morning and WELCOME to February 5th, 2013.

The moon is so beautiful this morning.

I love seeing clear skies in the morning.

For most of the winter our Alberta skies have been overcast so this is a breath of fresh air …. CLEAR SKIES.

Back to the moon, I love seeing how different from day to day the moon appears to us.

I have always loved the sky and have always been interested in “going beyond our atmosphere” and exploring the Universe …. the GALAXY and BEYOND …..

Imagining what or whom might be flying by at anytime …. or the possibilities of what may be.

The beauty of the planets …. the sun ….

I guess that is part of the reason that I have always been drawn to shows like “STAR TREK” and “STAR WARS.”

The moon seems mysterious to me ….. somedays you only see a quarter or it …. sometimes half and then the glorious fullness.

I love watching the skies ….. in the summer I lay out on the deck in the darkness and check out the stars and the moon.

In the daytime I love laying back and watching the clouds as they float by.

We are truly blessed to have such great beauty at a quick glance …. whether in the morning, at noon or in the darkness of night …. it is magnificent.

So take a couple of minutes and look up and enjoy (just make sure that you are not driving / operating heavy equipment.)


Special Hello to: all those star gazers out there …..

Thought for the day…..

Hey it’s Thursday, February 2nd, 2012 ……. another gorgeous day in Edmonton.

We have been so blessed this winter.

This morning when Alvin and I were outside the stars seemed extra shiny.

Perhaps they were doing so just for me….. I would like to think so.

It is always wonderful when the morning sky is clear so that I can take in the stars and the moon.

It fills me with wonderment and awe.

I wonder how many other folks are standing outside at that very moment gazing up at the sky.

What are they thinking?

Are they as awe struck as I?

I hope that you take a few moments in the early morning or in the evening to take in our gorgeous sky….


Special Hello to: all those star gazers.

Always, Carol and Alvin (who lays on the floor outside my office waiting for me)…….

Thought for the day……

Wow, welcome to Whacky Wednesday, Hump Day …… Happy November 9th everyone.

On this Wednesday morning my thoughts have been mainly on my dog Alvin.

He has taken to wanting up on my lap while I am doing my morning writing.

I might have mentioned this to you before now.

He really isn’t a lap dog as he weights 20 pounds and is quite long but nevertheless, he is one.

I love watching him get into his comfortable position.

Generally it takes him a couple of minutes.

I have to put my legs up onto a chair so that he has the length otherwise he would fall onto the floor.

But it is so nice to have him snuggling while I write.

It brought back memories of when my daughter was small and used to curl up on me.

I love that closeness.

I hope that everyone out there has the opportunity to share that with someone whether a child, spouse, or pet.

It is a great way to begin your day.

Special Hello to: all the star gazers out there.

Always, Carol
