Good Morning ALL! How are you doing this Monday morning? I hope that you had an awesome weekend. Both Alvin and I are well. We are a bit sleep deprived or at least I am. Not sure what is up with the boy but we went to bed at our usual time, then up at 2:30, then 4:14, then basically every half hour until I finally stayed up at 6:30 a.m. I hope that he is okay. He does not appear to be in pain. Perhaps he had too much sleep. When I go out in a bit to pick up the poop, that might tell a different story. I should have gone out with him earlier to check. But I was so tired that I just could not. I guess that does not make me a very good pack leader or momma. I will keep an eye on him today and see if anything is out of norm with him. He is giving me that look and perhaps his eyes do not look their usual selves. Oh, how I hope and pray that he is okay. We cannot go through anything major. Now as it was cooler and windy we did not go for a walk so perhaps that is bothering him. I honestly do not know. Will just tryin to keep positive energy going to Mr. Alvin.

Yesterday five people celebrated birthdays that I personally know. Two were relatives and two live nearby. How cool is that?

The sky is clear this morning as the sun rises. The temperature is to be in single plus temperatures for today, I believe unless the forecast changed which is entirely possible. The next two weeks are going to be all over the place with respect to weather with even some snow flurries a possibility. Yikes. Oh well, Mother Nature will get this out of her system before settling into the summer weather. I have noticed that the bunnies are more and more brown with each sighting. We saw a robin on the weekend. That is always a good sign.

Well I have to go downstairs, sorry for another short post. I will leave with you with some beautiful photos.

Continuing to life this life with Kindness, Respect, Compassion and Patience.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday, the 17th day of April 2013.

How are you this morning?

I am feeling great.

The sky is blue and clear and the sun is coming up in the west.

Oh, it always comes up in the west …… why did I say that?

I guess it is a thought.


So how many times a day do you think something and before you can say  YAB- A- DAB- A- DOO ….. you say something that is silly and usually not appropriate for the situation.

We think so many thoughts over the course of the day.

I have heard 60,000 …. yikes ….. that is a lot.

So many come to us without us even realizing ….. breathe ….. left leg …step ….. right leg step…


So on this mid week day …. let’s keep our thoughts focused on the positive …. the good and the kind.

If your mind wanders to something less than positive and good ….. change it ….

Own it and change it.

Keep the fear out and the love in.


OMG, the sun is reflecting off the windows on a neighbouring home ….. so pretty.

Bright …. brilliant gold.


Have a great day.

Special Hello to:  YOU and YOU ……


Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

This morning as the sun was coming up the sky was the most exquisite combination of pinks, yellows and “red”.

The moon was hanging up there “beaming” as always (on a clear day).

There were little if any outside sounds from the neighbourhood.

Only the sound of my heart beating and Alvin sloshing through the wet grass.

I think that I am in heaven.

So glorious.

It is those few moments each and every day that make one realize …

that life in all it’s glory …..

is clearly defined by those “tiny fractions of time” …. the ones where you are still in the moment ….

just enveloping it all…..


So from me to you ….. as always….

enjoy your day and those “tiny fractions of time”


Always, Carol
