Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Well today is Thursday, no rain overnight.

Yesterday was perfection.

We so enjoyed our walk with Teddy and his Aunt J.

Couple days into our regular routine and Alvin woke up early.

Both Tuesday and Wednesday he slept until the alarm went off.

This morning we beat the alarm by waking up at 4:00 a.m.

I guess you could add me to waking up early as well.

Yikes, a little bug just flew past my nose.

ARGH.

Will have to be on the hunt for that bug.

At least it was not a fly.

I do not like flies.

 

How about some more holiday photos?

More photos of the HOODOOS @ Drumheller, Alberta.

If you ever have the chance to visit this area, please do so.

It is incredible.

We did not climb to the top but there were other visitors that did make the journey.

Also at Drumheller is the Dinosaur Museum …. the Royal Tyrrell Museum.

We did not go there on this visit but we have visited before and it is so spectacular.

Worth the time.

We investigated little nooks and crannies.

Imagining life a long, long time ago.

There was some vegetation here and there.

The colouring of the formations was different at every angle.

Well time to fly here.

I hope that you enjoy some of the photos from our girls trip 2019.

 

It is always fashionable to be kind and respectful.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 28th day of February, 2016.

Today is the second last day of February – remember this year we have an extra day.

It is a bright sunny morning – the dinner birthday party was a huge successful.

Something I do seldom I did – had a couple of drinks and well up a bit later than usual.

Guests brought some refreshments ….. oh, my.

( Do not worry I was up at 6:00 with Mr. Alvin – he did sleep in for him as we were up until midnight).

The Birthday Girl was happy and all my guests loved supper and the cake.

So sweet both the Birthday Girl and My Guest brought me flowers ….. am I not the luckiest girl, I think so.

So it was a success ….. Mr. Alvin had four-legged company which was great.

So I leave this with you …… on a day that fills me with inspiration .

 

 INSPIRING

Inspiration comes from the oddest of places, at the strangest of times.

Inspiration can arrive with a knock on your door, say around 4:00.

Inspiration can take you places that your heart has always wanted to go.

Inspiration can make the day so much more fun.

Inspiration can come from watching the neighbourhood children running down the sidewalk.

Inspiration can come from catching one’s smile in the bathroom mirror, at just the right time.

Inspiration just sometimes arrives.

Inspiration can come from watching your dog meet his first love.

I am inspired each and every day by something.

It can be a dragonfly flying in my back yard.

It can be the scent of the roses on a summer’s day.

Making me wish that I was a maker of perfume and could bottle that heavenly scent.

It can be from watching the clouds float on by.

It can be from life – such as it is – such as it will be.

Inspiration gives us wings – gives us wings to fly.

Be inspired.  Whether it by something big or something small or nothing at all.

Just be inspired.  Be inspiring.  It is inspiration after all.

To have uplifting influence on ….. I like this dictionary meaning.

Have the most wonderful day …..

Take a walk …. help a friend ….. be kind to yourself.

Always, Carol and Alvin
