Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 30th day of March, 2015.

Well we are well into spring and not unlike past ones we always seem to be surprised when we get moisture.

Not today though.

But the last couple of days you never know.

Some rain would be nice …. clean things up a bit.

I am excited to see the street cleaners come down the street dusting and washing away the gravel and bits from winter.

I will be out soon cleaning up the neighbourhood.

Two more shifts left at the store.

I am excited and sad.

Spring is renewal and I plan to renew my lease on life.

Getting out there and doing things.

Keeping busy.

Me and Alvin both need to pursue evening walks with no hesitation or cancellation.

Soon the buds will turn into leaves ( I am thinking there are buds even though I haven’t really seen any ) and the robins will start to return.

I love robins.

Reminds me of my youth.

Just for some reason.

I do remember seeing many a robin’s egg and to this day I love that turquoise colour.

On this second last day of March, I wish you a pleasant reminder of your youth.

Happy Monday.

Special Hello to: all of my neighbours around the world ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Happy Tuesday, April 17th, 2012 …..

Well, we are well into spring …… even with the occasional spreading of the white stuff ….. spring is definitely here.

The birds are returning to the neighbourhood …. even the geese in small numbers are back.

I love spring ….. the sights …. the sounds ….. the smell …. the very feel of it all.

The newness ….. oh, I could go on and on.

The colours …..

The bunnies that hop through our neighbourhood …. actually their neighbourhood are turning brown now.

As the snow melts and the temperatures warm the uncovered grass is turning that wonderful brilliant shade of green.

My favourite colour ….. that new green grass.

I can hardly wait for a trip to pick up flowers to place out front and on my deck in the back yard.

YAY…… I think other than the warmer temperatures of summer …. that my favourite thing is FLOWERS.

I love all the colours and the scents ….. the different shapes of the blossoms. ┬áMy yard simply comes alive.

Oh, another great thing about spring is the birth of all the baby animals and birds.

I love watching the robins in the neighbourhood as they build their nests or restore old ones and then lay their eggs.

I think robins are my very favourite bird of all …. along with hummingbirds.

I love the colour of the eggs of robins …. that turquoise blue so very pretty.

So from this happy happy gal on this fine spring day ….. HAVE A GREAT ONE.

I hope that your day is filled with much love and laughter.

Special Hello to: lovers of spring …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
