Thought for the day……

Good Afternoon and Welcome to Friday the 28th day of June, 2013.

WOW, 28th of June.

I apologize for not writing yesterday and earlier today.

Somewhere along the line I picked up a bug – the one with the sore throat, chills and fever.

Thank goodness the worst appears to be over.

In about 8.5 hours or so my niece and her family are coming here from Regina, Saskatchewan.

I am so excited to see them …. it has been three years since we physically have seen each other.

We have seen each other via SKYPE which is so amazing.

It makes you feel like it hasn’t been that long ….. I love that technology.  Very cool.

It is hot here in Edmonton and the forecast is for the same over this long Canada Day weekend.

I am just going to get ready for work as I work at the store tonight ….. so have a few things to do before I leave.

Oh, Alvin has the best sister and brother-in-law on the planet … guess what they did on Wednesday (which was when I day two of me feeling less than stellar).

I got to their place and found that they had given Mr. Alvin a haircut.  He looks like a movie star.  So very cute.  Very handsome my boy.

That sure helped me.

I hope that you are as blessed as I am to have wonderful family surrounding you.

So the house is clean, the yard is manicured, and I baked some chocolate chip cookies this morning.

So all ready for company.

So I hope that you have a great weekend.

Take care and I will catch you all later.

Thank you so much for reading my blog ….. it means the world to me.


Special Hello to: DG&S were on their way to see us …… YAY.

Always, Carol and Alvin…

P.S. the rain has done something magical to the rose bushes that surround our walkways and lakes in our neighbourhood …. the bushes are an explosion of huge bright pink fragrant flowers.  I could stand by them for hours just inhaling the smell.  Oh, how I wish we could bottle that fragrance.  OMG, so beautiful…… I am so grateful to live here.


The violas are my contribution to “flower power.”

It is amazing what a little coloured cut glass and the rays of the sun can do ….. voile little coloured squares lining my wall
