Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 17th day of February, 2018.

It is a glorious morning with the sun shining and not TOO COLD (no wind).

Yesterday when I arrived home from work the wind had blown over my decorative tree that was sitting in the corner of my front porch.

Some of the red flowers had got loose and were laying in the snow.

I grabbed the flowers and set the tree back up.

This is the second time in about one week that the wind has blown over the tree so time to put it into the garage.

So after I went into the house and let Mr. Alvin outside (as he really had to pee, bursting at the seams) and gave him his supper; I put the tree away into the garage.

Well after dozing and relaxing until quite late this morning 9:10; we got the day started.

Now Mr. Alvin is another story – he first wanted up at 4:30 – had his breakfast and hit the sofa for some extra zzz’s.

Man, 4:30 a.m. is way TOO early on a Saturday for this Momma but if the boy needs/wants to eat etc.; well I just have to accommodate him.

We did not stay laying down from 4:30 to 9:10, no way, we were up about five times.

Sometimes I think he just wants me to get up early and stay up.

As soon as I rise, he quickly lays down in my spot.

Guess he is trying to tell me something.

The coffee is on and brewed and I smell can the glory of the aroma wafting up to my office ….. I want to share a day in our life from Thursday, February 17, 2011.

Alvin had been a part of our family for just over one year at that time….

Well here it is Thursday, February 17th, 2011.  Wow.  The sun is shining.  I imagine the birds are singing if there were any around.  The weather channel states the temperature with the windchill to be minus 34.  YAY.  Alvin is lying on the hallway floor.  I think he is bored.  I am kind of bored, too.  There are lots of things that I should, and could be doing but somehow “my get and go” has got up and left.  I am going to my daughter’s this afternoon to visit with the puppies (that will perk me up).  I think it is the “winter blues” …… or at least part of it.  But I will dwell only upon GOOD FEELINGS.  I am blessed.  I have abundance in my life.  Last night I went out.  Yes, I did.  Went with my neighbour and friends to the Jubilations Dinner Theatre at West Edmonton Mall.   It was amazing.  The play “Mamma Mio!” was based on Mama Mia, the musical.  It was great.  The actors were both funny, and had great singing voices.  Some of the audience members that were asked to join them on stage at different times during the evening …… really got into the spirit of the evening.  Most of the ladies at our table had the vegetarian meal (so wonderful that they had something on the menu for us non-meat eating folks).  The main course and the dessert (I had the triple layer chocolate cake) were EXCELLENT.  I had a taste of going out again.  It has been awhile since I have gone out for an evening.  I had such a glorious time.  We visited in between acts and enjoyed each other’s company.  Two of the ladies were friends of my neighbour’s so I was meeting them for the first time.  The other two gals were relatives of my friend (and neighbour), and I had met them prior to last night.  We had a blast.  I love people.  Love meeting people.

So I guess the thought for this day is …….. no matter where you are in your life.  Surround yourself when possible, with people.  Get out there and meet new “friends”.  We “human beings” are SPECTACULAR & AMAZING.  I always love hearing each person’s stories.  It is great to learn about the lives of other people.  What makes them happy, excited and gives them flight.

Alvin stayed at home, and as always for the first 20 seconds was HAPPY to see me.  Then after that …… he was more than happy to show me “who really is the boss in our house” and you know what that is okay.  He’s my guy.

So have a great Thursday everyone.

Always, Carol
