Thought for the day……

Good Afternoon and it is Saturday the 31st day of January, 2015.

The last day of January.

January has been a great month filled with great weather and for the great progress made by my nephew.

He is smiling and although he does not speak as yet he communicates in other ways.

It is so wonderful …… he has come such a long way and although he has a long journey ahead …. to see him here is fantastic.

 

Alvin and I made a trip first thing to the vet for his pedicure and for his “bum squeezing” (sounds better than the gland something or other).

Me and the pups are here now …. doing laundry ….. well not them but me.

The kids are out and out shopping and stuff.

My daughter and I did some shovelling earlier as we received some of the white stuff from Mother Nature.

She always loves to surprise us.

 

One of the big moments today was a phone call from my dear friend “L” who lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

When we both lived in Regina we used to go out for supper and coffees catching up.

We met working for the same company.

He is a retired, married, grandfather who is one of the best people I know.

When I lived in Regina and they in Saskatoon whenever they came home we always got together.

His wife is such a sweetheart.

My friend has some health issues making it hard to get out and about but he calls me all the time.

I miss him greatly.

 

Well time to finish some housework and see what the barking is all about downstairs.

Actually “Casey” our little visitor is growling …. likely someone walking by.

Alvin is upstairs with me.

Elton and Penny are laying on the sofa by the kitchen window watching for the return of Mom and Dad.

 

It is a wonderful quiet, lazy day.

Watching HGTV channel as I roam about the house.

 

I am so grateful for my life …. my home …. my family ….. my friends …..

Thank you.

 

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

 

Special Hello to: my friend “L” … miss you buddy.

Always, Carol and Alvin
