Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 1st day of FEBRUARY, 2019.

Well winter is now upon us.

Snow, snow and more snow.

Temperatures taking a dip.

Was out shovelling the back deck for the pups about an hour ago.

Should have time to do some of the front before my ride arrives.

So what does one do when the snow is blowing and the temperatures are a dipping?

Answer: You surround yourself with puppy love.

This was my Thursday night.

Now poor Mr. Alvin even though he loves his best bud Teddy very much, he cannot seem to get past Teddy having a chew treat.

Even though he has one of his own.

Teddy just laid there all calm and Alvin was not calm.

Despite my valiant efforts to calm him, he just had to wait until Teddy decided to let him have it.

What a friend.

Alvin, what a spoiled guy.

 

Alvin finally ended up with both …. Teddy is way too easy going.

Out of site out of mind??

Teddy on the bed with a chew treat AND

Mr. Alvin in the hallway by the bedroom.

Oh, isn’t life grand.

Thankfully the boys slept well last night.

 

I had a great afternoon ….. teeth cleaning …… received my permanent crown, now I feel like ROYALTY.

Then had supper once the freezing came out.

Had a lovely evening with the boys.

My furry four-legged boys.

 

Well time to leave for work.

So grateful to one of my co-workers for coming to pick me up.

Taking the bus home tonight will be pleasant, I am sure.

Glad we have food and a warm place to be this weekend.

Hunker down and keep warm.

 

Special Hello to: all my friends in the west …. hope you are safe and warm.

Always, Carol & Alvin & Teddy

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 10th day of July, 2015.

It is a bright sunny morning here in Edmonton.

The air still has a hint of coolness but before long it will be hot, hot, hot.

The past few days have been in the 30’s ……

Oh, those summer days ……..

I WISH you a Happy Happy Happy Friday.

May you be surrounded by love and laughter.

No drama …. just sweet calmness.

Well somehow the morning has run away on me ….

Time to leave for work.

Happy Friday …..

Special Hello to: YOU

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 23rd day of June, 2015.

The sun is shining and the birds I imagine are singing away basking in the glow of the sun.

There is a bit of a breeze here in the city making it comfortable for walking.

Mr. Alvin is in his usual position laying on his tummy facing the stairs waiting for me to finish.

We have a routine.

He has this routine of waking up and wanting to get up at 4:30 a.m.

I have been getting up with him and then after he eats and goes outside we hit the sofa for some extra zzz’s

I would imagine it would be easier to just say “no” but that is one word that eludes me most often.

Oh well, that is okay ……

Last night we were out for our regular walk and we ran across some neighbours who have two small dogs.

He was happy to see them but the little ones were barking and I was so happy he just stood there.

Didn’t snap back …..

They couldn’t hurt him and he stood there calm as calm could be.

Even their parents were impressed with Mr. Alvin.

Finally he just walked away.

One of the little ones did want to play but she follows the other one and he didn’t want to play.

Funny ……

Anyway he was my good boy, and I was a proud Momma.

Well this proud Momma has to hit the road …… too long on the sofa this morning.

I started to read a book last night and had a hard time putting it down.

I wish you a wonderful day filled with love and laughter, kindness and patience.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. will see her in five sleeps ….. YAY.

Always, Carol and Alvin
