Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 13th day of November, 2018.

Alvin is sitting by my chair in the office as I key these words and Teddy is sniffing around the office checking things as only a couple of days ago, I changed some of the furniture around.

Only a few minutes ago as I was getting ready in my bathroom with Alvin at my side; Teddy was on the bed playing.

He scooped the pillows and ran under the blanket that lays on the foot of the bed.

Pillows flying in every direction.

He likes to play under the blanket.

When he came out from under his hair was electrified and was flying in all directions.

It was then that I realized that my camera was downstairs.

I missed such a cute photo.

But running down to grab the camera would have brought the subject in hot pursuit.

So I decided that tonight I will make sure that I have the camera with me at all times.

OMG, such a cute sight.

Oh, the boys.

Every morning Alvin gets a little less vocal and a bit more patient.

He is getting used to having a bit of Teddy’s chicken with his food.

ARGH.

They shared blueberries and a bit of banana when I was having breakfast.

Except there are always the moments like just now when Teddy wanted up on my lap and Alvin got between him and me.

He likes his BFF but there are parameters, I guess.

They are so cute.

Black and white, White and black.

Even this morning one of the times they were outside …. it was evident….. Alvin when coming toward the house turned to see where Teddy was.

Alvin came in but still watching for his Teddy.

 

Yesterday when we were out for a walk we came across a woman and a puppy.

We all stopped.

The puppy was a Tibetan Terrier.

Black and so cute.

So full of energy.

Woman said puppy was her daughter’s and she was looking after him.

Both Alvin and Teddy played together with the new friend.

 

Later after supper, I paid a visit to Humphrey the Cat.

He still wears the “cone of silence” as I call it (after GET SMART) or most commonly referred to the “cone of shame.”

I was pleasantly surprised when arriving that he was laying on the sofa.

After I took off my coat and shoes, I walked to the sofa and sat down.

Humphrey plunked himself on my lap.

Strange for a cat.

He sat there for a good ten minutes.

I stroked his neck and gently rubbed his back.

He got up and moved about and then returned to my lap.

He did this three times over the time I was visiting.

So cute.

 

What would I do without these babies.

So cute.

Such great company.

Still wishing that I had some photos from earlier.

They would have brought a smile to your face.

I am certain of that.

 

Well another beautiful day on the way.

It will be dark when I get home and the pups will be hungry as I am catching the bus today.

Both ways.

But we will go for a walk even if it is short.

Have to take advantage of this beautiful weather.

 

Well time to run as I have to catch a bus.

Will let the boys out again before I leave.

 

Have an awesome Tuesday.

Special Hello to:  my sister ….

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 14th day of January, 2015.

It is to be +5 degrees celsius here in Edmonton today.

That is crazy for the month of January.

But we certainly are not complaining.

Perhaps a few more days like this and the streets and sidewalks will be dry.

Perfect for walking for me and for the puppies.

Last night my daughter and I enjoyed the perfect walk with the puppies.

There was a slight cool breeze but the sky was clear and you could see the stars and the moon.

I always love clear skies.

Mid week ….

Still trying to believe that my baby brother turned 50 yesterday.

That is mind boggling to me.

I think for today it shall be one of those days where kindness rules.

It should be that everyday.

I think, anyway.

Well almost time to leave for the office.

Traffic was backed up in spots so have to get away as early as possible.

Thank you for reading my blog.

I am most grateful.

Have the best day.

Special Hello to: all those people with Birthdays in January ….. Happy Birthday.

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.  My 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
