Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 8th day of August, 2016.

Today is the birthday of two special people in my life.

Happy Birthday to “S” who is married to my nephew and she turns 40 today.

We wish you a great day.

Happy Birthday to “K” who is a co-worker and friend.

We wish you a great day.

August is a big birthday month for family and friends.

I know so many people who have birthdays this month.

In case I missed your birthday – Happy Birthday.

 

Well I am “sort of up” as I am working today and tomorrow.

I know it seems odd to be on vacation for a week and then back for two days and then off the rest of the week.

But that is the way it just worked out.

Nice to work a short week although getting up this morning was a bit of a nightmare as I did not sleep at all last night.

Note to self: do not look at FB before bed.

I saw something that brought me to tears.

The human race never ceases to disappoint me that is all I will say.

Never again will I refer to “MANKIND” as mankind because we are anything but.

I need to get the visual out of my head as I get ready to go to work.

But it is not out of my heart and I do plan to speak up.

 

 

The sun is coming up and the sky looks clear .

A good day ahead weather wise.

The deck does not appear to be wet so no rain overnight.

 

Well time to go downstairs and have breakfast.

The house is quiet as Mr. Alvin is away visiting his sister.

Oh, I just caught a glimpse of the sun rays bouncing off the neighbour’s garage.

 

I hope that you will be a good citizen of the world in all that you do.

Thank you.

 

Special Hello to: the birthday girls …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 24th day of June, 2015.

It is a gorgeous morning here in Edmonton ….. the sun is shining ….. bit of a breeze ….. birds are singing.

We had a shower last night along with lightning and thunder…..

Well, it is pretty much perfect.

Alvin is laying outside the office on the rug with his front paws crossed over and his back ones (that is a bit of surprise) and from time to time he opens his eyes and stares at me.

He is quite the character.

Definitely an early bird.

4:30 a.m. …… seems to be his time to get up.

He wakes up around 4:00 – 4:10 or so and then I manage to get him to settle back down until 4:30.

Then 4:30 strikes ……

Alvin always does the “Ask Nice” …. by placing his paw on me …. how can you refuse someone with manners?

I am so grateful that our sofa is comfortable as sometimes I get some of my best rest there.

Oh well, that is my boy ….

Set in his ways.

That is middle age for you.

Four sleeps until my daughter and I go to see our nephew who was in the coma and is now in a brain-injury rehab hospital.

They have the best facility and he is making great progress.

My sister, her boyfriend and my youngest brother are going to meet us there.

She is coming from Regina and my brother lives in Calgary.

My sister’s fella has a son and family in Calgary.

Family all over the place.

It will be great to see everyone on Sunday.

Well here it is almost time to go and catch the bus …..

Seems like I just walked in the door after work.

One other thing I wanted to share ….. this morning in my bathroom which faces north ….. the blind is not quite down and there is about a space of one inch where the sun is coming in …… the sun ray glistens as it goes across the room as if it were a runway of diamonds.  I do not think that I have noticed this before now.  It is absolutely breathtaking.  Tiny diamonds floating across the room.  YAY …… would that be nice or what.  Likely dust particles or something.  Too scientific for my brain at 6:25 a.m.

Okay time to run.

I hope that you have an amazing day …… the a/c is set for Mr. Alvin so that he remains comfortable.

Special Hello to: my sister and brother so excited to see you guys …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
