Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 30th day of September, 2018.

The trees are moving slightly as the sun is giving a big push to break through the clouds of the morning sky.

We had a nice day yesterday.

It was quiet with me, Teddy and Alvin.

We went for a nice walk in the afternoon.

My daughter and son-in-law and grand-pups arrived just after 5:30 p.m.

I received three sweaters that my daughter at picked up at a clothing swap.

Feels like Christmas.

They ordered food for the birthday party and it arrived at 5:50 p.m.

So good ….. I loved the shrimp with cashew nuts and veggies.

Rice was a nice change, too.

There was SO much food.

The four pups all got along great.

Master Teddy followed Baby Milo around wherever he went.

So cute.

For dessert we had a Dairy Queen ice cream log.

It was good.

We played games and visited and had a wonderful evening.

My son-in-law enjoyed his gifts.

Helps to sell good products and have things on hand for special occasions.

 

After they left we, well I watched a couple of shows that just started their fall season and then to bed where I continued to read the book.

I am managing to get through it rather quickly.

And enjoying it.

Dan Brown can certainly get one to thinking.

Both Alvin and I slept through the NIGHT ….. up at 5:00 a.m. and then back to the sofa until 8:40 a.m. ….

I needed that sleep.

So now time to get ready and go to a friend’s for a visit and coffee.

My girls …. the young ones ….. I miss our regular get togethers.

 

Well time to go and I am so grateful for this relaxing, calm, happy weekend.

Have an awesome Sunday.

The last day of September as tomorrow is OCTOBER.

Now how did that happen.

Alvin and I will certainly be going for a nice walk after I return home.

Happy Sunday.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who are starting something new and are nervous, it will be okay.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 29th day of September, 2018.

The trees are swaying in the breeze while the sun rises and sky slowly clears from blue rain clouds.

Thank goodness for the weekend.

Time to rejuvenate, relax and also to do some things around the house.

This is a weekend of birthday celebrations.

We are celebrating my Son-in-law’s birthday which was on Wednesday.

No cooking for this Mum as we are ordering in ….. pick-up or take-away whatever you happen to call it.

Sounds like it will be Chinese Food.

My Son-in-law also wanted to have an Ice-Cream Cake so that will come from Dairy Queen.

What an easy party to plan.

The card and gift are done.

Just have to tidy up and have the refreshments ready.

Coffee and Water ….. easy peasy.

 

Alvin and Teddy are in the office with me while I write this post.

Teddy slept well and Mr. Alvin well he woke me up a few times.

Perhaps it was the full moon or the time of year.

I do not know.

He appears to be feeling well.

Or perhaps it is an age thing.

I get up to go “pee” so I guess why couldn’t he.

Oh well.

 

Sunday, it is coffee at a friend’s in the ‘hood.

I love to say that.

We take turns.

This time her parents are here for a visit and she is having a little birthday party for her Mom and invited myself and “G.”

The three of us girls take turn hosting coffee weekend get togethers.

Sometimes it is almost every weekend and other times it could be a month in between.

Depends on what everyone is doing.

 

So this weekend is all about celebrating.

 

Yesterday was the funeral of my friend from work.

It was a beautiful celebration of his life.

He was loved by his family, friends and co-workers.

That was clearly apparent.

He will be missed by us all.

I was saddened to hear that his little dog had passed away just a few days ago.

So much heartbreak in one family.

It is a reminder to hold your loved ones near and tight.

Tell them all how much they mean to you.

Do things together.

Phone them, visit them, text them, face-time with them, spend time with them.

It was a clear reminder that life is SHORT.

Do not take them for granted.

Treat people with kindness and respect.

We may only have one chance to do this meaning you never know the next time that you will see that person again.

Also be kind to your four-legged friends and all creatures.

They deserve your love, understanding, kindness and respect.

All living beings deserve this.

 

To all of my dear friends and family, you mean the world to me.

I think of you all in my waking moments and in my dreams.

Sometimes we are on unusual adventures and sometimes it is just a little visit to say hello.

Take care.

I thank you for being you and for being in my life.

 

One of our long-time co-workers and friend retired yesterday.

Monday is going to seem like we have landed on another planet.

Two of our staff and friends will no longer be there.

 

Have an awesome Saturday.

 

Special Hello to:  ALL my family and friends.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 20th day of October, 2014.

It poses to be another great day.

They are forecasting 21 degrees celsius for this day.

What a great way to start the week.

Yesterday we celebrated my daughter and her husband’s 6th Wedding Anniversary.

I picked up some yummy cupcakes from a little kiosk in West Edmonton Mall called “Once Upon a Cupcake,” on my way home from working at the store.  The kids ordered in Chinese food.  We had a yummy supper and dessert.

As time goes on here my nephew is slowly recovering.  I hope to go and see him one night this week.

Sometimes we want things to go at a wicked fast pace and that is not always the plan.

We just have to take one second, one moment at a time.

If you are in the moment and just do one at a time they will of course roll into many more and it will become easier to live the life of your dreams.

Always dream ….. I know that sometimes we get hung up in our day to day life and forget to dream.  Dreams are a very important pat of our lives.

So on this Monday just remember to live in the moment and do not be afraid to dream a little.

I hope that you have an awesome Monday.

Special Hello to: all my fellow bloggers …. keep realizing your dreams.

Always, Carol and Alvin
