Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 30th and second last day of August, 2014.

It is bright and sunny here in Edmonton as we approach noon – one hour away.

The kids are off to Canmore and I had a wonderful visit with my neighbour “So” …… she is Miss Aussie’s Mom….

Me and the puppies are hanging out.

Doing laundry and housework and also high on the priority list is cleaning out the bathroom fans.

Isn’t it funny how one never seems to notice when they are clean but once they become “dusty” ….. your eyes naturally are averted there.

Oh well.

I am so excited for supper as my friend who is more like a sister and her daughter and grand-daughter (niece and great-niece) are visiting from Regina.

They are in Edmonton to do some back to school shopping at our “WEST EDMONTON MALL” ……. it will be busy there today for sure.

Last weekend before most of the kids go back to school.

I am so excited to see them.

“H” will likely be taller than me now ….. she turned 12 this summer.

Well my darlings I am off to get some laundry done and then fetch the ladder to clean the three bathroom fans.

I wish you all a happy and safe long labour day weekend.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Special Hello:  to all those who are travelling drive carefully …. no texting or talking on the mobile phones when you are driving. We want you back safe and sound.  Enjoy your travels.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Thursday, September 13th, 2012.

Well here we are ….. the middle of another month.

The mornings are a bit cooler here in Edmonton …

The days noticeably shorter…

The moon is noticeable for I think a longer period after sunrise…

The trees are starting to change colour…

The animals are starting to prepare…

INCLUDING US????

So have you packed away your summer clothing, shoes and jackets?

Have you pulled out your flowers that are no longer bright and vibrant?

Are you rearranging your garage to put all your summer stuff away?

Have you cleaned your windows, checked the seals around the windows, cleaned your bathroom fans, cleaned your furnace, or started?

I am still wearing my summer clothing, most of my flowers are still doing okay despite the dip in temperatures the night before last, my stuff is still on the deck, I have begun the getting your home ready for winter part.

I have a furnace cleaning booked for the end of September.

When you own a home there is always lots to do ….

Last night I enjoyed a lovely walk with Alvin…

It was a perfect evening … no breeze …. temperature just right for walking.

Rescued a baby jack rabbit (only a couple or three weeks old) from my basement window well!

That is another story.

Bought the winning lotto ticket (have to check and see how much we won).

Watched “THE VOICE” …. love that show.  The judges are a perfect mix of entertainers and personalities …. they work well together.

I LOVE THAT SHOW.  It is my favourite.

Well on that note I shall say “farewell” until “morrow” ….. which is my day off ….. but I will write something just for you…

Have a blessed, grand, wonderful, awesome, spectacular, great, fantastic, WOW kind of a day ….

Special Hello to: all those volunteers who help people and animals …. you TOTALLY ROCK and are amazing.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin…
