Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 5th day of November, 2016.

I have to share something with all of you ….. nothing life threatening.

This morning as we are getting ready to make a visit to the Vet (just routine).

I had pulled the blinds up as per usual so that when Alvin sits on the bed he can see out the window.

All of a sudden it went from darkness with only the light of the street lamps to this clearness.

I had not experienced this as it happened.

But with the rise of the sun it gave a glow that was so beautiful it gave me pause to stop and admire.

I looked out of the window to the east and just sighed.

We are so lucky to have sunrises and sunsets.

 

The sheer magnificence is breathtaking.

What a great way to start your day.

Well just a few minutes until we have to leave.

We are so lucky that our Vet is within a quick walk from our house.

Lucky Alvin and lucky Momma, for sure.

They are awesome and just like family.

I have decided to have breakfast when we get back as I was able to get some extra sleep after Alvin’s breakfast (he is such an early bird).

Tomorrow or rather about 2:00 a.m. tonight our clocks go back one hour.

YAY.

Well I should go as Alvin has to go outside.

Another thing to share ….. our ChRiStMaS Tree went up last night.

Also was able to decorate most of the main floor except the upstairs bannister and a bit of tweaking here and there.

I love this time of year.

How about decorating outside today in plus 15 degree temperatures.

Gotta love Edmonton.

Have an awesome day.

Happy Saturday.

Girl friends coming over for coffee later this morning.

Great day ….

Special Hello to: all those folks who love sunrises and sunsets.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 23rd day of November, 2015.

Another gorgeous morning here in Edmonton.

I think I shall wear my shoes today.

Might as well take advantage of dry streets and sidewalks and the warm temperatures.

Another great Sunday was had by me and Mr. Alvin.

We did laundry, mostly me but he had good instructions.

We labelled and priced the last of the jewellery and packed it for the craft sale.

We put together some tea samples to take to work today.

We put the new jewellery in bags ready for transport to the office to show the girls.

We put away the ornaments that were just set on top of boxes and the table downstairs.

We decorated the upstairs bannister for Christmas.

Let’s see there were more things but it was so nice to get so much accomplished.

There was even time for the odd break here and there.

Mr. Alvin is a very good help mainly in the supervisory area.

But we all need some supervision from time to time and I tend to drift sometimes.

Both of us enjoyed our walk …. so beautiful out yesterday afternoon.

Time to go to work ….

Another Monday.

Hard to believe that one week from tomorrow is December 1st.

I hope that you had an awesome weekend.

Did you listen to music?

One little story….on our walk yesterday.

We were on our way home when we noticed one of our neighbours out putting up a reindeer and sled with the help of his young son.

I was smiling as the young boy had shorts on and a winter coat.

Alvin of course wanted to go and say hello.

The Dad and I chatted.

Dad said so nice to have this good weather for decorating outside.

I agreed.

Then a young girl came out …. Alvin was in his glory.

The kids were trying to help.

Trying is good.

Well time to go.

Have a GREAT day.

Special Hello to: all those Dads who decorate with the kiddies’ help ….

Always, Carol and Alvin
