Living … One day at a time.

Hello, well one full day back in the real world, my reality, anyway.

Not so bad.

Work is busy but that is not a surprise.

Always good to be busy.

Last night after work Alvin and I were joined by his BF Teddy and his Aunt J.

We walked around the big lake and it was glorious.

Such a beautiful night ….


I thought that I would share just a few of my vacation photos.

  1. Has to be one photo from inside the car.  Actually I took a great many but not as many as last year.
  2. NOTE:  I was sitting in the back and my sister was the navigator this trip.
  3. HOODOOS – Drumheller, Alberta (our day trip).  So beautiful.
  4. HOODOOS – Natural beauty
  5. HOODOOS – Cave
  6. HOODOOS – such a variety of colour, it was windy and warm
  7. HOODOOS – great way to spend the day and I have more photos to share.

Well I have realized that it would be much faster if I uploaded the photos from iPhoto to WordPress before the morning.

Now it is time to go back downstairs and finish getting ready for work.

I will just keep posting vacation photos for a few days.

There are so many photos that I wish to share with you.

We had such a great time.

This year my sister joined us (my daughter and I).

We three …. had so much fun.

Back tomorrow.


Spend your life giving kindness and showing respect.


Always, Carol & Alvin


Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 13th day of November, 2013

Yesterday was so beautiful and this morning is so warm, feels like spring.

Alvin and I had a great walk after work and his supper.

The air felt warm upon my face.

We are having a great November here in Edmonton.

I wanted to share something with you.

Last night I saw a photo on FB of a 7 week old puppy that someone had dosed with flammable liquid, and lit him on fire.

His ears were burned and his eyes are severely damaged.

Infections are still a concern.

They do not know if the little guy will make it.

His name was Nero.

I will see his little red face in my sleep.

I do not understand how someone could do this.

I do not understand.

I do not understand.

I do not understand.

Why so cruel?


All I can hope is that he survives and has a loving home.

Little guy you are in my thoughts.

It made me snuggle my Alvin even more this evening.

Please be kind to every living being.

Please, I beg this of each of you.

Thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
