Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 23rd day of August, 2016.

It is dark, cloudy, raining, windy and COLD outside this morning as I peer out of my office window.

I am so grateful as I received a phone call a few minutes ago from my neighbour asking if I would like a ride to work this morning.

She had looked outside and did not wish me to have to walk to the bus in the wind and rain and cold.

Am I not the luckiest woman?

I am, I am.

She even turned on her furnace this morning as it was too cold for Cinder, her pet gecko.

Also she just adopted a cat over the weekend and his name is Mitchell.

Well Mitchell to our neighbourhood.

Alvin did introduce himself through the window.

We were going for a walk and Mitchell was sitting on the living room window ledge.

Brr, it is cool here in…..

Alvin will be fine ( it is 70 celsius so not too bad ).

Today was/is a sock in the shoes day and long pants and sweater.

The cold damp air just goes through to your bones.

Time to bundle up.

Yikes, did I really say that?

Well here we go almost time to leave.

I need to take Alvin out again.

He does not spend much time outside when it is raining.

Sometimes if it is raining / well pouring he needs me to haul out my big umbrella and go outside with him.

He’s my boy – I do that for him.


I hope that everyone has a great day.

May your day be filled with love and laughter.

Lots of laughter.

Take care.

Spread the laughter……


Special Hello to: all those folks who open their doors and bring in homeless animals.  Thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Welcome to Thursday, November 1st, 2012 …..

I had a great Halloween yesterday ….. dressed up in my “bunch of grapes” costume.

So many of the office staff dressed up and such great costumes.

I was pleasantly surprised by the number of kids that came by for treats last night.

It was quite cold with the windchill last night.

Some parents drove them around so that was good.

Both me and Alvin enjoyed greeting them at the door and we were happy to see some of our friends and neighbours.

I had to put Alvin on his leash otherwise he would have been gone treating with the kids.  LOL.

I hope that you all had a great Halloween night last night and welcome to November 1st.

I am excited because on Saturday I put up my Christmas tree.

Down with the Halloween stuff and up with the Christmas stuff.

Well I had better run here ….. was late as I had a few extra things to do this morning.

Have a great day …..

Keep safe and warm ….

Special Hello to:  All those people living on the North American Eastern Seaboard …. I hope that you are safe, dry and warm ….. our thoughts and prayers are with you.


Always, Carol and  Alvin …….

Good Morning, Happy Halloween and welcome to Wednesday, October 31st, 2012 …. the very last day of October.

It is a fine morning here in the City of Edmonton.

I just put the finishing touches on my costume and will put most of it on when I arrive at work as I cannot fit my coat over everything.

I am going as a “bunch of grapes” …… will see if I can get someone to take a photo of me tonight so that I can post it.

My friend “G” loaned the costume and I am grateful.

It is so cute.

I hope that if you are celebrating this day ….. dressing up and such …. that you have fun and stay safe.

I have to go as I am running a bit late here.

Have a great day everyone and HAPPY HALLOWEEN……

Special Hello: to all my little trick or treaters ….. hopefully all treaters …..  🙂


Always, Carol and Sir Alvin ….. he is a Knight today …. my Knight in shining armour.
