Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 5th day of March, 2016.

Today is the birthday of my Aunt “L” …. she is the only sister and sibling of my Dad.

Happy Birthday Aunt L – we wish you the best day and year to follow.

All the time growing up everyone always said that I looked like my Aunt.

 

Well this is the second morning without Mr. Alvin.

He will be coming home within the next hour.

Oh, how I have missed him.

Missed that waggly tail at the door ….

Missed him snuggling up to me on the sofa and in bed.

He has been away for a sleepover at his sister’s house.

Lucky boy.

Getting spoiled I bet.

I am grateful that he has a place to take a break.

Even though I missed him terribly – it was great to see my friends on Thursday night and then last evening after work I stopped at the mall to do a bit of shopping.

Mostly looking but was great to do.

I stopped by and saw some of my friends at the store, Bath & Body Works.

 

Well almost time for the boy to come home.

My daughter is bringing him for 9:00 a.m. so that we can have coffee before dropping us off at the Vet for Alvin’s pedicure.

Yesterday I was telling the girls as I left for home about Alvin’s homecoming and his pedicure …. at first one of the girl’s thought I meant me and then we got things straightened out and she said “Well at least someone is having a pedicure.  Yes, I said …..

So nice for the sun to be shining and to have it light earlier.  I think next Sunday we put our clocks forward one hour.

 

I wish you a great Saturday.

Oh, here are the beautiful flowers that I received as a thank you for hosting the birthday party last Saturday.

HAPPY SPRING – I was trying to get some fun close ups but clearly I am not a PHOTOGRAPHER ….. oh well…..

Special Hello to: my Aunt …. Happy Birthday

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to a bright sunny Thursday the 12th day of June, 2014.

WOW ….. DAY # 12.

Well so far this month has been pretty great …… and as time seems to be … passes quickly.

Tonight after supper my daughter and I are hitting the greenhouse for some flowers.

I love, love, love, love flowers …… did I say LOVE.

Of all the non-talking, non-breathing, non-human or animal – they are my absolute FAVOURITE thing.

I love everything about flowers ….. their fragrances, all of the colours, the unique shapes ….. they are the whole package.

Tonight I will be in dreamland.

My only wish is that I could purchase every single one or even half of them…… alas but it is only a dream.

Perhaps someday …… can you imagine…. buying every flower in the greenhouse or even several carts/pallets full.

Mmmmm ……… my deck and front porch are going to be beautiful.

I love impatiens because they are happy in partial shade and they are so pretty.

I love petunias because they love the sun …. who doesn’t ….

I love roses and lilies and pansies and dahlias and peonies and them all.

Carnations and some I cannot spell …..

So pretty ….. my heart is doing the happy dance ….. happy …….

I am so happy ……

I counted my pots and have 12 to fill.

Very carefully ……

I do have some roses in my back stone garden …… and some shrubs that faithfully spring back to life after a long snowy winter.

So YAY for today ……

Have a great day and I hope that it is filled with everything that makes you feel happy…… Happiness is: – – – – – –

Special Hello to: my sister who is enjoying a week of vacation.

Always, Carol and Alvin
