Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 4th day of May, 2015.

It is raining at this moment …. or at least it was ….. we could use the moisture so that is good.

Mr. Alvin and his chewy bone are like a pair.

After I voted on Saturday I stopped by our local “Bone & Biscuit” store and picked up a couple of treats for Alvin.

When I got home I gave him the first one.

It was pretty big.

He carried it around the house hiding it along the way.

Alvin likes to him them for a long while before actually eating them.

That first one last well into the night on Saturday.

Yesterday when our company arrived I decided to give him the second and last one that I had bought.

He is still hiding it.

He brings it to bed ….. hides it behind the decorator pillows until I removed the pillows from the bed.

Then he hid it at the foot of the bed …. not really hiding it …. as it was in plain sight.

Then this morning he brought it downstairs …..

After he ate he wanted to take it outside.

Then he brought it back in and when he sat on my lap it came to the table.

He dropped it on the table before snuggling onto my lap.

Then I went to the bathroom …..

He always wants to come in …. in came the treat.

Alvin pushed it behind the bathroom vanity.

When we left the bathroom, I had to get it out as he just stood there and gave a little bark.

It was too tight of a space for him to get back into …..

After breakfast he brought it back upstairs and hid it in the bathroom where I was putting on makeup.

It remains there for the moment as he is stretched out on the carpet in front of the office.

He is so darn cute.

He has hid his chewy behind the cushions on the sofa, on the chair, on the mat by the back door, in the corner by the back door, downstairs in the family room …. anywhere really.

I just wanted to share my morning thus far.

Well almost time to leave as I am on Aussie patrol ….. have to go and look after one of my neighbour’s cat.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

Happy Monday everyone.

Special Hello to: anyone that has a dog or cat or any companion …. they always make us smile.  I am smiling now.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 18th of April, 2015.

The sun is shining and the temperature is mild and the wind is BLOWING.

We have had quite the breezes the past few days.

Well this is our first weekend with no house guests.

The second weekend where I do not go to work at the store.

It feels strange on both counts.

Alvin and I are settling in ….. it is very quiet.

I can hear the echoes of his footsteps, and my voice throughout the house.

Another chapter closed and another opened.

Yesterday I did laundry and some moving things back into my bedroom and regular cleaning.

I had coffee with my friend “G” and that was nice to do on a Friday afternoon.

Alvin and I enjoyed a walk ….. it was strange without my daughter and the pups along.

We got out and back just before it started to rain….perfect timing.

We slept in …. just lying there …… mind drifting off ….. to places ….. to people.

Today my daughter was coming back for one last load of odds and ends.

I found a few things that have to go as well.

There are always those items that miss the boxes.

So today, to do:

1.  make a list of everything that I have to do over the next month

2.  check on Aussie the cat

3.  perhaps rake the front lawn (or wait until next Saturday when the ground has thawed more)

4.  make fudge for my friend’s little guy who is celebrating a birthday, and happens to love my fudge …..

5.  go for a long walk with Mr. Alvin

6.  RELAX

One more day until back to work and oh has it been wonderful being at home.

Well that kitty is waiting …. she needs some company.

Almost forgot about breakfast.

COFFEE …..

Well here we go …… it will be easier by next weekend when the schedule is in place.

I do love my house when it is filled with voices, barks, love and laughter.

I do love my house when it is filled with us.

They will come back for visits and maybe even sleepovers ….. at least for sure the puppies, will.

 

Happy Saturday.

Here we go.

Life carries on.

I am so blessed.

With the wind in my sails I will go.

With Alvin at my side I will never be alone.

Happy Saturday.

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends …. time to be making some phone calls……and video chats…. SKYPE…anyone.

Always, Carol and Alvin
