Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 30th day of January, 2019.

Warming up and snowing.

Rides to and from work today, thankfully no riding on the bus.

Teddy comes for a couple of days as his parents are going on vacation.

Love having him in the house.

He brings joy to me and Alvin.

Lightens our moods.

I guess it is the energy of youth.

Hopefully it will work out so that we can walk over and pick up Teddy after work.

I have the song “HAPPY” by Pharrell Williams playing over and over in my head.

I would like it to keep me in this place.

Actually woke up feeling happy this morning.

That is a first in awhile and not that I have necessarily woke up grumpy but just not feeling gleeful.

Today is going to be full of glee.

I am on top of the world.

Yes, I am.

Keeping up the positive, joyful energy.

I guess there will be shovelling in our future.

The pups will enjoy the fresh snow.

Alvin will be burying his chew treats in the snow for sure.

What am I saying …. will be …. pretty much every one that I give him goes outside.

He takes his time and very careful digs with his paws and his nose a bed to bury his beloved treats.

I love watching him putting them to bed.

When he digs them up …. just as cute.

Carefully and with precision he brings them back to the surface and into the house.

Full circle.

How about some photos for a snowy Wednesday.

Random shots from my gallery.

I love this plant arrangement my neighbour gave me before Christmas.

Sadly only part of it remains alive but it is alive and transplanted.

Teddy, Alvin’s BFF with a chew treat almost his size.

Me and my siblings when we were very young.

One of my most favourite photos.

Ah, my babies, so cute.

How can you not love those faces?

Aspen and Milo patiently waiting for treats and Alvin, not so much.

I love this old canister, a great find from our trip last summer.

Nothing like mountains in the smoke

Books, one of my most favourite things.

Ending with some pretty flowers.


Gotta run and catch my ride.

Happy Wednesday.


Special Hello to: my friends and family, you raise me up and keep me going.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 10th day of December, 2013.

Almost time to do the official countdown ….

Still a few sleeps before that ….

We started to ponder the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Menus.

We change it up for year to year ….. but always have our old favourites in some shape or form.

Last night I had a chat with my beloved sister …

Man, how I miss her ….

She is one of the few people on this earth who have been with me since birth …. and I with her.

We have our moments and then we have our MOMENTS.

No matter what though at the end of the day WE LOVE EACH OTHER UNCONDITIONALLY.

Isn’t that what it is all about …..

She is a wonderful human being and I am so blessed to have her as my sister.


One of my favourite photos of me and my sister “Cindy” ….. she is the cuteness on the left, and me, same hair cute just a couple of years older.

I am blessed when it comes to the people in my life.

I am always surrounded by interesting and loving folks.

Who challenge me.

Who keep me grounded.

Who love me.

That’s my life.

Crazy good, I believe.

Snowing again …… WINTER ….

Fa la la ….. la la ….. la la la la ….

Special Hello to: the people in your life.

Always, Carol and Alvin
