Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 23rd day of February, 2019.

That darn Weather Report says colder weather on the way.

Hopefully when Alvin and I walk to his follow-up Vet appt. in a little bit (930); it is not too cold.

We did not make arrangements for a ride.

Thankfully it is only about an 8 minute walk.

Also wishing a Happy Birthday to our friend “A” who lives a few doors down.

It is her Happy Birthday today as well.

Also a girl I know back home.  Happy Birthday “M.”

Lots of birthdays on this day.

So, today is the DAY.

Today is my beloved sister’s “60” Birthday.

I cannot believe she is 60 ….. where has the time gone.

Seems like yesterday we were teenagers and young adults.

I will say this …. we always had fun … no matter where we were or what we were doing.

We have laughed and cried together.

We have worked together (for same company).

We have lived together for a bit of time.

Always there for each other.

Yes, we have had our “spats” but at the end of it all, we always made it out of the mud and on our way.

She has been my longest friend.

No one can make me laugh like my sister.

I love her sense of humour, her smile and her laugh.

She is one of the most intelligent beings I know.

My sister is dependable, loyal and herself.

Wishing my baby sister the most wonderful 60th Birthday.

Yes, I know I am giving away your age but sister, 60 is huge.

It is just a number.

But a glorious one.

Happy Birthday Sister C.

The pups wanted to get in on the WISHES.

Happy Birthday from Miss Aspen, Master Milo and Mr. Alvin.

Purple flowers – Lavender for a February birthday.

How about an ANGEL FOOD CAKE with Fresh Strawberries …. next visit …. will make you one!

Wishing you a Happy Happy Birthday.

Wishing you a great day and year to follow.

May you have good health, be filled with great joy, love, and abundance.

AND always, surrounded by the ones that love you.

With love from your family

Me, Alvin, A & S, Aspen and Milo.

Have an awesome day.

 

Special Hello to: the Birthday Girl, of course.

Always, Carol

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 16th day of March, 2015.

WOW, have you ever had the feeling that something absolutely out of this world “FANTASTIC” is going to happen to you.

I believe that something great is about to come my way.

It all started yesterday morning on my way to work at the store.

I needed to park closer to Bed Bath and Beyond as I wanted to check out the “pet steps” that were in a recent flyer.

I drove to the north side of the store Simons at West Edmonton Mall and at the very end of the customer parking there was one stall left for me.

It was on the end closest to the store .

My day just got better and better.

Meet some great people at the store yesterday.

One customer even shook my hand.

The night before I got a hug.

YAY.

Life is going well.

Spring is on the way.

Most of our ice and snow has already melted.

Temperatures have been warm.

Work at both jobs is going wonderfully well ….. couple hiccups so to speak but all is well now.

Oh, I was able to secure the pet steps …. they are still in the box however as we had my daughter’s birthday celebration last night.

Lucky girl one of many….. we love our “A.”

I asked one of my co-workers to make the birthday cake …. as my daughter wished for an Angel Food …. time was not on my side so my girl “C” made the most delicious one with a lime drizzle that was out of this world.  What a great supper …. we were going to have taco salad but my son-in-law decided to surprise me and made fajitas and they were so good.

Well looks like almost time to leave for the office.

Well another Monday here we go.

Have a great Monday …..

Spread that kindness to all you meet.

Guaranteed you will feel like you have never felt before …… so good …..

Special Hello to: my friends …. hello out there.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Monday Morning and welcome to January 28th, 2013 …..

I had a great weekend and was especially grateful to be feeling better again.

I started the weekend by having coffee with one of my friends followed by the usual laundry and cleaning.

Alvin and I were able to take a nice long walk and then after supper I watched a movie and baked cookies.

I have the best chocolate chip cookie recipe on the planet.

It is so easy and they always turn out great.

You can add whatever you want in the way of extras like: raisins, cranberries, nuts etc.

I took some into the store and they were a hit.

Just wondering how many people bake these days especially with most grocery stores having a bakery.

I will always love homemade baking.

I remember whenever I would go to my Grandparents farm and the smell of my Grandma’s baking would waft through the air ……

I am certain that even the farm animals were licking their mouths from the scent.

She baked the most amazing items:  jelly rolls, fresh brown bread (even before the popularity of brown breads), all sorts of cookies, and cakes.  She made the best orange chiffon cake I have ever had the good pleasure to eat.

My Grandpa made fudge …. that was his speciality and it was yummy.

My Mom made fudge as well and it was great …. whenever the chance she made the best pumpkin tarts and angel food cakes.

It is so funny how food can invoke such wonderful memories …. I can see Grandma in the kitchen, Grandpa walking in the barnyard and my Mom smiling.

I hope that you have wonderful memories …. you never know what “a good brownie” will remind you of …….

Well time to go and finish getting ready for work.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

Always dream and use your imagination …… it works for you.

Special Hello to: all those bakers ……

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
