Thought for the day…….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of March, 2017.

The sun was shining in through my kitchen windows this morning.

I still have the decorations from my daughter’s birthday party hanging in the window and they are BUTTERFLIES.

They are so pretty I decided to leave them up for awhile.

They were used originally for a store display.

Lucky me.

So pretty …… they are well made and will last for years.

 

We were up early as usual and then before heading back to the sofa I turned on the dryer to fluff up the load that I had left in the dryer from last night and put in the last of the two loads to wash.

Always grabbed all of the clothes that were drying and brought them upstairs to be put away.

I put away the dishes that were air drying in the sink.

Pulled out my baking dishes as I plan to bake banana muffins this afternoon after my morning coffee party.

 

Then we hit the sofa.

I must say that one of my most favourite moments in time is when Alvin and I snuggle on the sofa in the morning before getting up to stay.

We have this pillow from IKEA that is rectangular on the sofa.

I lay it flat and place my head at one end and then Alvin shuffles around before laying his head next to mine.

Placing our favourite red blanket over top of us and with my arm over his body we nap for a little longer.

It is truly one of my favourite moments in time.

What a wonderful way to begin the day.

 

Usually after I get up he moves over to my spot and I cover him up.

He lays there while I write in my gratitude journal and once I have breakfast including the always “banana” – he will leave the sofa and come to the table.

We always eat breakfast at the table …… he has his food much earlier but we always share a banana.

His fav.

 

Last night it was raining …. yes, raining in March and windy.

This morning we woke up to snow.

Actually I knew it had snowed because I looked out the window at 2:30 a.m. (bathroom break).

 

While writing in my journal this morning – Alvin got up to go outside.

I decided that I would grab my coat and boots and shovel off the deck …..

 

So time to hit the shower as I have a coffee date with my girls this morning.

Not my turn to host.

I will be walking most carefully this morning.

Feels quite warm out so it should melt today.

Sky is clear so that is a good sign.

Gotta run.

Also want to make coffee for my neighbour before I leave for coffee.

 

Have an awesome day.

Special Hello to: my sister …. SKYPE at 6:30 p.m. ????  If different time call me, please.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

P.S.  Mr. Alvin looks so good in his new hair cut and feels so soft after the bath.  The longer is hair the more course it is ….

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 30th day of October, 2015.

The second last day of October.

One sleep until Halloween.

Two sleeps until my Christmas Tree goes up.

YAY on all counts.

Today we are dressing up at work.

Our group is dressing up as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves ….. complete with the Wicked Queen….

The girls decorated our area so we are reminded of the fairy tale.

Mmmm ….. butterflies ……. banners flying (castle)…..trees …… we have a creative bunch.

I am excited to see how everyone dressed.

I am one of the dwarves …. GRUMPY …… I just was having an off day when they were deciding who would be who.

OH well …… someone has to do it.

I will share some photos later.

Alvin was wondering why I was dressing the way that I am ……

On this day where children will be dressing up to go to school and parents dressing up at work …..

Keep your eyes peeled for folks in costumes and who may not be able to see clearly from behind masks and such.

I hope that you have an awesome Friday ……

Hey this could be “FREAKY FRIDAY” …….

Special Hello to:  all those people who love to dress up.

Always, Carol and Alvin
