Thought for the day….

Wow, today is Monday, September 3rd, 2012 ….. this is the month that we officially change seasons to “FALL” or “AUTUMN” …. but not for a few weeks.

This is my favourite time of year ….. the temperatures are usually warm but not hot, sometimes a rain shower but not downpour and the leaves begin to change colours.

I love all of the colours that Mother Nature showers upon us….. the richness of autumn.

The smells of this time of year ……

I was so blessed to have had a four day weekend this time around ….. found out when I called the store later on Saturday that I was not booked for a shift on Sunday.

It was a very pleasant surprise.  I do love working there, though and miss the staff when I am not there.

I have the office window open and there is a nice cool breeze blowing in and freshening up the house.

Yesterday on my day at home: I baked banana with raisins, cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate three ways ….  muffins, loaf and a cake.

I used up half of the frozen bananas that I had in the freezer (cleaned the fridge/freezer the day before).

I even was brave and did not completely use a recipe as I did not have a couple of things so I took some liberties which is not common for me to do when I am baking.

But everything turned out wonderfully well and so yummy.

Alvin even wanted some but of course, I did not indulge him.

So on this last day of my extra long weekend I am going to work on some jewelry with Amanda.  She is planning to come over later.

I still have to repack up the things that did not sell at the garage sale.  Some things I will leave on Kijiji and others will go to charity.

I will call one that can come and pick things up ……

So have a great day and enjoy your time wherever you are …. home or at work……

Just having time is wonderful …..

I am so grateful for this day ….. to be at home with Alvin … later creating some jewelry pieces …. being with my daughter …..  I am so blessed.

Special Hello to:  YOU AND YOU AND YOU …..


Always, Carol and Alvin
