2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this fine May 12, 2021 Wednesday morning? Alvin and I are doing okay. He has yeast infections in both ears. Came on quickly considering we had been to the vet not even two weeks ago. Might have had something to do with walking in the wind and perhaps getting dirt and perhaps I did not get them dried enough when he went outside to go to the bathroom when it was raining. The vet who he has seen before is not his regular vet but I feel she brings a new light to the table. She helps out at the clinic to give my vet a break for a week or so each month now. It is easy to burn out when you work with no breaks. I cannot imagine that being a vet would be an easy job either. Also Alvin is taking probiotics for seven days with hopes that it gets his tummy and stuff back in regular order. I that Teddy’s Mom gives them probiotics, perhaps Alvin should take them on a regular basis. Mr. is sitting in the hallway calling to me, so perhaps he needs to go out or just wants my attention. I just called him to lay on his little bed in the office and he came and now he is gone again. Definitely he is not quite back to normal. Hopefully soon.

The sun is shining brightly in a clear blue sky this morning and there appears to be just a slight breeze as I can see the trees to the south of us moving ever so slightly. I believe we are going to have a +18 degree celsius day today. Perfect for walking.

We had the walk to and from the vet in the morning and after work we went for our regular walk. The trees are budding and in some cases the leaves are already out. I love this time of year. Everything so fresh and new. Wouldn’t it be nice to feel fresh and new? I think so.

Well sorry for this being so short. The boss is calling me. If you could hear him you would want to finish this as soon as you possibly could.

I wish you all a wonderful Wednesday. Go out and enjoy the day and remember to take some time just for you. 15 minutes or 30 if you can. Walk, sing, dance …… read a book. Time is precious and we have to remember to take some for ourselves. Recharge those batteries. I am thinking. Need to do that.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion and patience.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you doing on this Tuesday morning? We are doing great. Alvin and I had a decent night sleep. It is much cooler outside this morning that yesterday and the sky is grey and overcast. Also is quite windy. I feel like composing a poem for you at this very moment.

SPRING

So this is spring!

A time for renewal and birth

A time to sow crops and seed gardens.

A time of new beginnings.

The time when Mother Nature returns to wonderous colours.

Her natural rainbow.

A time of rain showers to cleanse away the dust that remains after the snow has melted.

A time of new life.

This is my favourite time of year.

Soon there will be buds on the trees followed by beautiful green leaves.

Soon the perennials in the gardens that have laid sleeping will awaken.

Soon baby bunnies will be hopping about and baby birds chirping to be fed.

Soon farmers will post photos of baby calves just born, so soft and cute.

Soon the grass will go from brown to a few spears of to a massive blanket of green.

Soon the temperatures will be more constant.

Soon we shall be wearing shorts and flip flops.

Soon it shall be summer.

Happy Days.

Love Spring for the beginnings and summer for the showcase.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 20th day of December, 2017.

WOW, one more day until WINTER is official.

Then the daylight hours begin to get longer.

It will be nice to at least leave work in the daylight and not in the dark.

Tonight Alvin and I are hosting one of our friends.

Our friend who grows the most amazing garden of flowers.

Their yard always looks so beautiful.

We are excited for her visit.

She is the gal that I went shopping with on Sunday that insisted on buying us the turkey.

Yes, turkey is back on the menu.

That is okay.

I love turkey.

 

At this time of year, we begin to reflect of the year that has almost passed.

Did we accomplish everything that we wanted to do?

Did we meet new people?

Did we laugh enough?

Did we eat enough green vegetables?

Were we good to our family and friends?

Did we visit everyone enough?

Did we help our neighbours?

Did we …. could we ….. should we ….

Always lots of questions?

One important question?

Did you take time for YOU?

Are you well rested?

Are you happy?

Are you okay with you?

So many questions.

At the end of the day …… be kind to yourself and you will be kind to others.

 

Have a great Wednesday.

Gotta run.

Breathe ….. I know this time of year ….. is BUSY.

But there is always a few minutes to sit quietly somewhere and be quiet.

Just breathe.

 

Special Hello to: You, my friend.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Thursday Morning and today is the last day of May 2012, the 31st.

I love this time of year …. spring turning into summer.

Just a few weeks and it is officially summer.

We tend to take license and start doing summer things while we are officially still in spring …. before the first actual day of summer.

But that is okay …. we just want to enjoy the weather and the time.

So on this gorgeous spring almost summer day ….. I hope that you are smiling and laughing and having a grand time.

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing …. make sure that you take a few moments/minutes to enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer….. the sunrise, the clear blue sky, the trees, the green grass, ladybugs.

Just enjoy.  It is a fantastic day….. full of promise.

If you are unsure of what to enjoy first …. may I make a suggestion?  Remove your shoes or flip flops and walk in your bare feet on the grass. I can feel it now.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to:  all those people walking around in bare feet on the grass…..

 

Always, Carol and Alvin.
