Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 18th day of January, 2015.

Overcast but relatively mild here in Edmonton.

I had a great Saturday ….

Started off by having coffee with girl friends and our hostess made us treats …. yummy.

Two of us decided to take a quick trip to our nearby Target store.

By the way they are closing all of the Target stores in Canada ….. too bad about that.

I know several people that are quite upset about losing them, including me.

We did not go to see if there were great sales or anything we went because we like/love some of the brands they carry.

I splurged and bought new bedding for when I redo my bedroom in the spring and also new shower curtain, bath mat and several sets of towels.

AND two of the most gorgeous pillows for my bed.

SO exciting … they just happened to have the right colour selection and I happened to be able to afford them.

Perfect combination.

So my Saturday was awesome.

My daughter and I took all of the puppies for a walk.

Note to self: it is slippery …. ICY out there.

With these mild temperatures ….. have to be careful.

So today it is off to the store to work a shift.

Last day of our semi-annual sale so will be busy.

We recently started to sell our jewellery on ETSY and received our first sale yesterday.

Very exciting.

So many things to be grateful for and I certainly am.

Well just enjoying a delicious cup of coffee and then have to pack up and leave for work.

Wish you a great Sunday.

Oh, tomorrow is Alvin’s Birthday we will say that he is “6” as we are not sure of his actual birth.

Five years that we have been together……


Have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those artsy folks out there …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 23rd day of July, 2014.

Last night was the last night before the kids and grand-puppies move in …..

Guess what ….. Mr. Alvin was sick to his stomach about 1:30 or so in the morning.

Luckily he did not get the bedspread or sheets too yucky.

But cleaning bedding in the middle of the night is always tricky as one is generally sleepy.

After all was said and done ….. I could not fall back to sleep because I just laid beside him like an anxious Mom.

Just making certain he was okay.

Needless to say I am a bit on the sleepy side this morning.

Tonight will be exciting because the kids move in …… tomorrow morning will be Christmas morning with everyone here.


Oh, Alvin seems to be feeling better.

Well because I am finding it slightly difficult to wrap my thoughts together and then to put them in coherent sentences …..

I will say “have a great day.”

I hope that happiness saturates your day.

Special Hello to: all the parents of two-legged and four-legged beings ….. it is a tough but rewarding job.

Always, Carol and Alvin
