Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 21st day of June, 2017.

We had quite the storm again last night.

This one lasted quite a bit longer.

I am always shocked at how strong our trees are when the winds are blowing them almost to the ground.

They are very flexible.

 

Happy First Day of Summer.

Longest day of the year.

They said we would have 17 hours of daylight today.

WOW ……

Guess it definitely will be light when I go to bed this evening.

Lots of sunshine this morning.

BREEZY.

Very breezy.

 

Do you have any special things that you do on the longest day of the year?

Me, not really other than make certain we go for a walk and then check the sky for the moon.

Love being able to see both the sun and the moon sharing the sky.

 

Feeling quite better now.

Not sure what hit me but glad it is over.

Feeling rested as I slept most of yesterday.

 

Special Hello: to my sister …… not long now.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 5th day of June, 2017.

Well this morning is unlike the past couple of mornings as it is overcast, windy and was raining.

The winds last night seemed close to gale force as they rocked the neighbourhood accompanied by lightning and thunder.

What a show it was.

Unfortunately with all the excitement it did not make for a very good night sleep.

Oh well ….. that is what happens sometimes.

 

We had a good weekend and enjoyed our little adventure to the “Northern Park.”

I call it that as it is two parks north of our house.

The baby geese always hang out there or at least most of them.

So each year me and Alvin make sure we take a walk up there.

It is not really that far but it is so much different than our “parks” and is most enjoyable.

The path through the area has not been touched for the most part it is wild as far as the trees and plants go.

The wild roses were blooming unlike ours in our nearby parks.

The fragrance filled the air.

I could sniff that scent all day long.

Close your eyes and imagine the most wonderful scent known to man.

We had a great two hours.

We did not walk steady as we would stop and take it all in and I snapped as many photos along the way as I could with a leash in one hand and a water bottle for Alvin in the other.

The rest of our Sunday was quiet and relaxing.

 

I have come to realize and have for some time that “one must always keep an open mind.”

It is something that is not always one hundred percent easy to do but we need to try.

There will always be changes.

Changes in life happen every second.

We just have to keep an open mind.

 

Well here it is time to leave for the walk to the bus once again.

Seems like it was yesterday but that was two days ago.

Time flies.

 

Have an awesome Monday.

Happy Monday All.

 

Special Hello to: those adventurers who enjoy life one second at a time.

Always, Carol & Alvin
