Good Morning All! How are you this gorgeous Saturday morning? We are out enjoying the coolness of the morning. The sun is shining but has not as yet moved to shine upon the deck so we are in the shade for now. We had a GREAT sleep from 10:30 pm till 5:00 am and what a difference. I gave him his breakfast and meds and went outside for his morning constitutional, lol. Then because what right minded human being would stay up at 5:00 on a Saturday unless you had some planned or exciting to do. I just addressed the Universe aloud that I would like a couple more hours sleep and after hot Alvin settled on his bed that is what we had. Alvin seems to have a great internal clock as he woke me up at 700 am. After stretching we were up. I went upstairs to get dressed and to gather the laundry. Once downstairs I grabbed my flip flops, Alvin’s harness and put him into it, leash on and keys and sun glass clips and headed out to greet the morning. So absolutely gorgeous out just the perfect blend of warmth and coolness. We did our ten minute round trip and then back home where I put on the coffee and then carried Alvin to our little patch of green in the backyard. We have successfully managed to water flowers without him running up the steps. I open the back gate and fetched the garden hose. Firstly, I watered the front flower bed and he watched from the backyard but did get brave and came out a few st we ps. I carefully watched and when he came out to far and wouldn’t listen to me telling him to go back, I sprayed a bit of water in his direction. Oh, certainly with no intention of getting him wet. That did the trick. So I was able to water both front and back flower beds. We are to have a hot weekend so I want to ensure my flowers survive the heat. Last night we spent some time outside and I watered the pots by hand with a watering can. I also picked the two biggest of my peppers this morning. Back into the house to run down to the basement and start first load of laundry. After that I took my mug of freshly brewed coffee and my phone and placed them outside on the patio coffee table before bringing the boy out. We sat enjoying the morning air with me writing this post until I believe he was bored so back into the house where I topped up my coffee and now we are on the sofa. What an exciting life we lead.

Last night after work I gave him a haircut and although I could really trim his paws the rather thick coat of hair that had grown on his body has been trimmed. I did not wish to give him a bath so I gave him a wash down to remove any fine hairs . Today I will give him more of a sponge bath. He looks so much more comfortable. Perhaps that is why he was playing with his Teddy Bear a little while ago. Looks like someone is feeling much better.

Off the topic of all things Alvin, I am not sure if I have mentioned this or not but my kids have purchased an acreage out at Alberta Beach. Some people just have vacation homes and others live all year round and that is their plan. They have dreamed of living in the country with a bigger yard and lots of room for their pups. They are renting their current home which is a great idea. Thinking ahead to retirement. If they tire of the country in a few years and want to move back, they won’t have to buy a house. I cannot wait to visit. They are a short walk to the beach. Now the new home is a bungalow with no basement and they are downsizing by more than half which brings me to another topic of discussion. Stuff. Why do we feel the need to have a home snd fill it full of stuff. Oh, I know there are a multitude of reasons. Most lies in that we North Americans have over the years have had the land space and the financial means to acquire stuff. Sometimes we don’t have the finances snd go into unnecessary debt but that is for another day. When I look around my house and see all of the things that I have accumulated over my life I kind of want to ask the question, Why? What for? Why do we have such a want or need to keep things that remind us of a time in our lives or a person? Why? I believe that part of this lies in advertising- advertisers do such a great job of telling us what we need and want. I guess this also goes back decades to when we began to have more of a difference between the poor and the rich. The middle class was born. With technology and industry and no wars we were settled. Companies were born making all sorts of things that were not necessary in our lives but were things perhaps making a task more convenient or just something pretty. We have long entertained entrepreneurs and today we make so many things not necessary to live our lives. An example of is kitchen gadgets. Every year there are so many small appliances that are invented and created. We have become a society hungry for money. We put way too much emphasis on having “it all” – money to buy and go wherever we choose. I could go on and on but the point is we have too much stuff and I applaud my kids for getting back to basics or at least closer than they now are. I am trying to make some changes as well. It is taking a bit longer as with Alvin in recovery my time is mainly put to looking after him.

I think that we need to think twice about the size of the homes we live in and I know that I have more space than I need. Think about all the things we bring into our homes. Now I am all about supporting small business and friends that are in direct sales to support their families as I am one of them. Maybe we need to stick more to items that are consumable.

I have a few photos to post and then time to get going. My first load of laundry is washed by now. Time to have some breakfast.

We can all reflect and think about making some changes.

I apologize as somehow I copied the categories from my blog and cannot seem to remove. So will have to leave on this post. The dangers of posting using my smart phone and not the computer, argh,lol.

Have a great day.

Good Morning ALL! How are you this Saturday. Well I just had a shower in cold water and not be design. So I need to make this short and head to the basement and see what is going on. I googled and there could be a gas leak to the hot water heater or any number of reasons why there is no hot water. We have been busy trying to keep cool the past week and succeeded thus far.

I will keep you posted.

Need to keep safe here …… not quite sure who to call or what to do but I am sure that I will figure it out.

Have a great day and be safe, cool and in good health.

Continuing to live with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, understanding, love and gratitude.

Good Morning ALL! Alvin and I had a FANTASTIC sleep and he didn’t get up until 5:00 a.m. YAY for the boy. The sun is shining very brightly this morning and there is a cool breeze slipping in through the open windows. We will be heading out for a walk shortly before the heat of the day sets in.

I love the early morning walks. It seems like the birds are out singing and the roses just smell more fragrant and the grass seems more green. Morning just seems to be Mother Nature’s best time. I cannot wait to get out and smell those roses. They are my favourite.

Looks like the temperatures here over the weekend are going to be in the 30’s …… now that is hot. Thankfully we have a cool basement to retreat to should the need arise.

I have some GREAT NEWS. Yesterday I made it to 1000 FOLLOWERS, thanks to all of you. There are no words to say just how grateful that I am to make it to this height. Makes me feel very important and maybe a little interested and talented. Thank you again. I know that everyone’s time is so precious and for you to spend it with me reading mostly about my life with Alvin and just the everyday with a few tidbits of this and that thrown in ….. means the world. Happy 1000. YAY.

I have been thinking of adding to my posts and will see what I can come up with. Not too much change but perhaps a little is always good.

Time to head out for that glorious walk. I hope that you had a chance to get outside and enjoy the morning. Even if it is only to your patio or deck. Just to breathe in some fresh air if possible.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Mr. Alvin remains a bit anxious about his drinking bowls, not sure why. But as long as he will drink that is all that matters. He does love his new walking water bowl. Thank goodness. Cause we all know how well he does with change. Yikes.

Continuing to live with live with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love and gratitude. Important to be grateful for even the little things.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Good Morning ALL! How are you doing this fantastic bright and sunny, blue-sky Friday morning? Both Alvin and I are doing great and so happy for this day. The trees are swaying back and forth in the breeze. Looks like we have sunshine ahead for the weekend so that is great. We are grateful for the moisture. Very grateful. The grass has grown what seems like a foot in our backyard. The front has grown but for some reason the back seems to grown faster and taller. I mowed the grass last weekend and did not have another opportunity to mow again as it has been raining for most of the week and it has been wet. We enjoyed two walks in between rain showers yesterday which was fantastic. Hoping for a repeat today. I decided this morning to put on a full face of makeup and dress up just a bit more than usual. Yesterday I dressed up as well. Have to start wearing my dress up clothes. When it is overcast and raining much like when it is cold and snowing all one ones to do is to wear sweater and sweatpants, something comfy and warm. I also must confess that I turned the heat back on a few days ago but yesterday turned it back off. Looks like warmer weather in the days ahead.

What are your plans for the weekend? I will be mowing the grass, pulling weeds and doing laundry and likely some cleaning. Walking will be top of the list as well. I will likely need to hit the grocery store for a couple of items. Relaxing will be near the top as well.

Oh, yes and researching about getting a great roofing company to do the shingles. I have made some notes but want to put everything in order. Questions and what things are a must like licensing, insurance and WCB for starters. I want to be informed and make sure that I/we get the best company and the best price. I, very much would like to get the shingles done soon.

Just thought of something else, now that I have my photos deleted on my phone, I should be able to upload the new ones to the computer with no problems. Then I can begin to post some. I will need to take some current ones of my flowers as they have grown a foot (almost).

Time to head on downstairs and get that coffee brewing.

Wishing you a bright, fun, lovely Friday.

Continuing to live each day with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love and gratitude.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? I had a slightly difficult time wanting to stay up this morning. Their were plans to be up earlier but ended up just before 8:00 a.m. Are there folks out there who are like me, who would love to be an early morning person but someone cannot bring themselves to get up at let’s say 6:00 a.m.? I manage to get up for work although now that I am at home, I push that time to the latest that I can and still able to fit in our morning routine. I have tried staying up later so that Alvin will sleep past 2:30 a.m. and most times he has been waking up at 4:00 or a bit earlier. Not quite sure what to do. I know that consistency is the key and I guess we have to find out groove, our place. I believe that part of “our problem” is that he will nap in the evening while I am watching television or whatever it is that I am doing unless I am outside working on something and then he is right at my side. I guess I have to spend less time on the sofa and more time doing things. Likely I do spend too much time on the sofa semi watching television and the rest of the time checking things on my smartphone. Here I am falling into the groove that I did not wish to when I first got the phone. On the bright side or upside, it is almost summer. There are many things to do outside so if we are busy and are in bed at/by 10:00 and then could sleep until 6:00 a.m., that would be perfection. 8 hours sleep or close. In a row would be ideal. Not sure how that would work with both Alvin and I be “older” and sometimes a full “bladder” wakes you up. Oh well. Life in the fast lane.

Yesterday I took a vacation day. What a great day I had. We were up fairly early and had a quiet morning. My daughter had a bit of a late start but she was here by noon and that was great. She brought the pressure washer so that I can clean the deck (hopefully) this weekend. Then we were on our way. I brought along a to go mug of freshly brewed coffee for her and I brought water as I had already drank way too much coffee. Always have to think of the bathroom thing. LOL. We decided to drop off her groceries that she had picked up from COSTCO on her way to my house to her house. She also picked up new eyeglasses which looked so good on her and had very “fancy looking” frames. At her house, I said hello to my son-in-law and to my grandpups who were excited to see me. I spent a few minutes giving Miss Aspen a belly rub. Soon we were on our way to a nearby community that was hosting the free cycle and I made an error in my previous post(s). It was Stony Plain that was having the freecycle weekend and June is when Spruce Grove (my daughter’s home) is hosting this event. We drove around and admired homes looking for people who were participating in the freecycle. The first thing we found was what looked like a garden hose and was very soft and flexible and two battery operated garden lights. We also pulled up to this house and we both spotted three vases. One was a dark copper, tall and cylindrical and the other were glass and beautiful. I was in love with the copper one and luck would have it my daughter loved the other two, most especially one that was greens and yellows so pretty. Another person pulled up right behind us but she stayed in the vehicle until we were finished. WE got lucky. We also found a bit later a bunch of medium and small Christmas tins which I love to use either to give baked goods to during the holidays or to wrap a small gift. We stopped at a garage sale and my daughter brought a brass bathroom towel holder stand. It was heavy and well made and worth the $10 that the woman asked for when we asked how much it was? We decided to drop off our finds at her home. At my daughter’s I got to meet the infamous pup LUNA who lives next door, formally met Luna’s parents and gave Miss Aspen more belly rubs along with Luna who kept giving me kisses when I rubbed her back. Mi Mi he would come for attention and then leave. The car was unloaded, a snack was had and bathroom breaks and then we were on the road once again. This time with stops to Canadian TIRE and then a greenhouse/nursery. I was able to pick up several items that I had wanted and a few extra things. It started to rain when we got to the greenhouse. We were standing in line. I said we would only wait 5 minutes or so and then leave as I did not have to buy flowers this time around. Before you know it was raining hard and people were starting to move inside. The young male employee was trying valiantly to keep people outside as it was against health regulations. No one listened. One older woman did not want to stand outside and basically just “pushed” her way into a corner and then when her husband came he just said he was with her. Some people. Most people moved into the entrance way which was frustrating the employee who was trying to keep people outside. Another employee came and told everyone that they could be shut down but no one seemed to care, they just did not want to get wet. We stood at the entrance, as we were third to go into the nursery. Anyway, there was chatter while we were there. Some laughs. No one seemed to remember the order except for me. Then we had a cart it had been sanitized and we were in the greenhouse. So many beautiful flowers and plants. While my daughter went to check out the succulents, I went to the other side. First find was some impatiens plants that were 6/$6.95 so I grabbed a couple of them. That was the last time that I looked at the price. The name of the game was to pick up some flowers and get home to Mr. Alvin. We were already later than I had originally planned. Although he had not been alone for very long as my neighbour had gone over around 3:00 p.m., I did not want to stress him more than necessary. I caught up to my daughter and we went around and picked up flowers that appealed to us. I picked up some many and was really excited. We were both excited as we love to plant flowers. I may need more for my front flower bed but it was a good start. Considering I had not been paying attention to the cost, I came in way under budget. So it goes to show you that if you pick out only the items that you love …. that you may just come in under budget/cost. Happy as a lark, I was. By the time that we got out of the greenhouse, the rain had stopped. We loaded up the car and were on our way to my house. Thankfully it is a short drive and we were home just after 5:30 p.m., so not too late. Mr. Alvin did let me know his feelings on the subject though. I let him out right away followed by his supper. We unloaded the plants and my shopping items and then my daughter was on her way. Once she was out of the garage I moved the flowers/plants into the middle of the floor. We are going to be busy this weekend. Pressure washing the deck and the house, planting flowers, the Fifth Avenue Jewelry lives which we had one last night at 7:30 p.m., laundry (that load I put in a while ago will be long since washed, a walk and some cleaning and whatever else I can squeeze into today and then tomorrow. I had better get this show on the road.

Oh, one more thing. After I fed Mr. Alvin last night I decided we should go for a walk before the rain. The sky held some big dark clouds. We did not get the rain shower that Spruce Grove had while we were flower shopping. We got to the park and Alvin decided that was far enough, I tried to convince him to go further but he would not so we headed home. I remembered as we got closer to the mailboxes that I had not picked up the mail recently and I had heard that the census had been mailed so decided to stop and grab the mail. While we were walking I noticed two woman and a medium size dog on the same side of the sidewalk as we were on and we had to cross to pick up the mail which we did. It was then that we were close enough and one woman had her back to us and I thought that she looked familiar. When we grabbed the mail we were crossing the street but there was a car in between us and when we came around the other side I realized that I in fact knew this woman. Surprise of all surprises, this is my new neighbour. The people that were moving out said a “woman” had bought their duplex and who knew that it would be someone that I knew. How cool is that? Very cool. We chatted for a few minutes. WOW.

I had better get going. Get dressed and get that load of laundry hung up and the next one into the washer. Lots to do this day.

I am excited to try out my new garden hose.

We wish you a wonderful day.

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

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

2021 – Day after EARTH DAY

View Post

Good Morning ALL! Happy Friday to each and everyone. I hope that you are doing well. We had another sleep deprived night but Alvin seems to be okay so not exactly sure what is wrong if anything. I did clean his ears at 3:30 or so as he was shaking them about. I had checked them earlier and they did not look dirty but there may have been something irritating him that I could not see so the cleanser from the vet is good so I put some in both ears and using the medical gauze squares (not cotton balls) I gave him a little swish about. Nothing was on the square. Anyway clearly something was bothering him as basically we were up from 2:20 till about 5:30, when I must have dozed off and realized that he was not on the sofa so I got up and could not find him on the main floor. So I ran upstairs to find him in the hallway. We went back to bed and slept until the alarm went off at 6:45 a.m. I hopped into the shower and feeling refreshed I should be okay for the day along with some caffeine. Poor guy.

We did have a walk at noon yesterday despite the cold wind and that it was snowing. Yes, it was. Bright sunshiny morning for this Friday. YAY.

I cannot believe that I forgot yesterday was EARTH DAY. Then I got to thinking and thought shouldn’t every day be EARTH DAY? Perhaps reminding everyone the day after the OFFICIAL DAY is even more important. So here are some everyday tips to help the environment – Mother Nature – our EARTH:

  1. Pick up the trash from your property.
  2. When you are out for a walk pick up trash that you see
  3. Organize a garbage/trash pickup in your community
  4. Stop using single use plastics (or at least cut down)
  5. Stop using the to go coffee cups from your local coffee place, take your own. Everyone has a mug or fifty.
  6. Start shopping at Thrift Stores/Garage Sales and the like for clothing and other items for items you need.
  7. Use the “Marie Konda” method of organizing in your shopping practices. Make sure you REALLY LOVE the item.
  8. Clean out your closets and perhaps swap with friends and family.
  9. Check with local animal shelters to see if they need any towels and blankets (if you are cleaning out your linen closet)
  10. Old suitcases – contact Foster Homes
  11. Be mindful of what you buy (yes, I am repeating myself).
  12. We in this country and in the United States – simply buy more than we need. Way more.
  13. Live more simply.
  14. Only keep what you use.
  15. Let us each make a difference.
  16. Make sure that you pack your garbage for pickup properly. If you live in a windy location or where there are a lot of birds, ie: magpies and crows – you may wish to use a closed container instead of just putting put a bag. Maybe your municipality is changing to covered bins like ours.
  17. Please do not put your loose papers and egg cartons on top of a “blue bin.” They will blow to my house and I will end up putting them into the garbage.
  18. Check with your local municipality about what can be recycled
  19. Stop using balloons (they are killing our wildlife and birds).

Well it is time for me to sign off and get the coffee on and go to work.

I wish you a wonderful Friday.

Remember each one of us can make a difference. It is each one’s responsibility. This does not just lie with government.

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

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Good Morning ALL! How are you doing this Monday morning? I hope that you had an awesome weekend. Both Alvin and I are well. We are a bit sleep deprived or at least I am. Not sure what is up with the boy but we went to bed at our usual time, then up at 2:30, then 4:14, then basically every half hour until I finally stayed up at 6:30 a.m. I hope that he is okay. He does not appear to be in pain. Perhaps he had too much sleep. When I go out in a bit to pick up the poop, that might tell a different story. I should have gone out with him earlier to check. But I was so tired that I just could not. I guess that does not make me a very good pack leader or momma. I will keep an eye on him today and see if anything is out of norm with him. He is giving me that look and perhaps his eyes do not look their usual selves. Oh, how I hope and pray that he is okay. We cannot go through anything major. Now as it was cooler and windy we did not go for a walk so perhaps that is bothering him. I honestly do not know. Will just tryin to keep positive energy going to Mr. Alvin.

Yesterday five people celebrated birthdays that I personally know. Two were relatives and two live nearby. How cool is that?

The sky is clear this morning as the sun rises. The temperature is to be in single plus temperatures for today, I believe unless the forecast changed which is entirely possible. The next two weeks are going to be all over the place with respect to weather with even some snow flurries a possibility. Yikes. Oh well, Mother Nature will get this out of her system before settling into the summer weather. I have noticed that the bunnies are more and more brown with each sighting. We saw a robin on the weekend. That is always a good sign.

Well I have to go downstairs, sorry for another short post. I will leave with you with some beautiful photos.

Continuing to life this life with Kindness, Respect, Compassion and Patience.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Good Morning ALL! How are you on this bright and sunny Monday morning? I hope that it is bright and sunny where you are. Alvin and I are doing well. We had a fantastic weekend despite Mother Nature’s spring snowstorm. As I mentioned before I got to use my brand new Bissell Crosswave. Yesterday I submitted a tea order and baked a banana loaf / bread. Did some cleaning and put away the laundry that was air drying from Saturday. I even did some shovelling and I enjoyed the day. Here we are again at Monday morning. Most of the snow has now melted. The sidewalks are clear. Front lawn still sporting a white blanket.

I wanted to share a daily affirmation that I came across on Facebook. It has become my new mantra.

Daily Affirmation – stand in front of the mirror and look at yourself and repeat daily

I am healthy. I am strong. I am powerful. I am happy.

I am grateful. I am wealthy. I am loved.

I am appreciated. I am lucky. I am prosperous.

I am divine. I am confident. I am proud. I am blessed.

I am beautiful. I love the person that I am.

Stating a daily affirmation is good for us to do.

It is surprising how quickly you begin to see a difference in your being.

Have a wonderful day.

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

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Good Morning ALL! How are you this Friday morning? Alvin and I are well. I did wake up at 5:30 with a headache so I did take something. Not very often that I get headaches and not very often that I take any kind of medication. I am thinking it is due to the snow mold as I was raking grass last night. Might be a good idea when I do the front lawn to wear a mask. Never thought of that but it might just help. Anyway at the moment the tylenol seems to have worked. I am congested but then I spend most of my days in that state due to allergies. Oh well. I am alive and breathing and living in my own home with my trusty companion Alvin and am employed, so things are pretty great. The sunrise is beautiful this morning. Appears to be no wind, not even a little breeze. After work tonight I will have to run over to the vet and pick up more food and glucosamine for Mr. Alvin. I am grateful that the vet is within walking distance and that today is Friday and that they extended their hours past 4:00 p.m. and open on reduced hours on Saturdays. The weather forecast is for cooler tomorrow so I was thinking that I would go after work but may just go tomorrow. Will see how the day progresses.

What are your plans for the weekend? I want to try out my new Bissell Crosswave vacuum / wet cleaner tomorrow. See if it will clean the area rug and carpet although will start small. Maybe will try the stairs and landing tomorrow. Always there is laundry and the usual bathrooms and dusting. I am not sure if the front lawn will be dry enough to rake, so might leave for next week or weekend when the temperatures are warmer. I am going to submit a tea order. I also want to watch a new show with Katy Sagal that I recorded. The name escapes me and there are other well known actors in the show as well so looks really good. Some of the shows coming out now are extra good – not sure why. Has the Pandemic changing things, I do not know.

I am sorry that this will be short as I needed a few extra minutes to sleep this morning. How about some pretty photos? I love sharing my new found wealth of photos.

Take care and have an awesome weekend.

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

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

P.S. thank you to all of the folks who take their precious time to read my posts, I am over the moon grateful.

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? We are doing well. Alvin had been trying to get me up for the past hour as I laid on the sofa just being. Looking up at the ceiling taking in the expanse of the popcorn ceiling (why popcorn?) and then my eyes would fall to the living room window as the sun was rising, beginning to shine and lighting up the tree in our front yard. What a peaceful beautiful morning. It was so great to just lay there with every fiber of my being relaxed and sometimes dozing off for a minute or three. A great way to being one’s day. So now I am up. I was shocked to find that I had not completely turned off the computer yesterday. I was so certain that I had turned it off ….. but I guess not. Technology. Alvin is impatiently waiting for me to finish my post. My daughter will be coming at some point likely this morning and we are going to take a trip to COSTCO. She was going to go and pick up some coffee for me and few things for them when I asked to join her. Perhaps people will be at home and not out shopping. It would be great if when we got there it was quiet ….. only a few shoppers like us out and about. I have not been in a public place for quite a long while and thought it may be nice to get out. Besides any chance to spend time with my girl cannot pass that up.

How was your weekend? I am lucky as this is a holiday for me. My arms and shoulders are a bit sore from hauling those heavy garbage bags home on Saturday. The neighbourhood cleanup. Maybe next time I should score a wagon and then pulling it would be much easier than lifting. The bags would have been okay and not so heavy had it not been for the shingles and some wet cardboard boxes. I always believe that I am stronger than I am and not that I am weak but age does remove some of your younger strength for sure. Oh well. The bags are taking up residence in the garage until I put them out for the garbage men tomorrow morning. They are strong so it will not be a problem for them. I wished that I could label them as trash picked up in the neighbourhood so that they would not think it was my trash. I guess I could put notes on them. I could.

So did I get through the list of items that I had planned to do this weekend. Well most things I think. I did not clean the bathroom cupboards in my bedroom or the main bathroom but truly those are small tasks which I could do after work one night this week or next weekend or later today. The big thing was cleaning up the neighbourhood and that is done until next time. I found my journals for 2020 which I will need for my next project. Laundry and some cleaning was accomplished. Walks were done. Yesterday’s walk was cool and I even put Alvin’s sweater on him. Today is to be plus double digits so no sweater for Mr. Alvin.

You may be wondering why I started posting random photos on my posts. Well, I had not realized until recently that those photos were at my fingertips. A click away. So now I am playing with them. So easy and why not share some beautiful work. Very talented people out there.

SUNRISES …. how absolutely beautiful….

The lighthouse photo above looks like it may have been shot in Eastern Canada. All these photos are amazing.

They transport me away ……

Remembering to live each day with kindness, respect, compassion and patience.

Love Always, Carol & Alvin
