Living … One day at a time.

Hello, what a great morning.

Woke to another “dry ground” morning.

Always a great way to start the day at this time of year.

We had an interesting, entertaining staff meeting yesterday.

 

Last night Alvin and I enjoyed our walk.

So nice to still have green grass and some trees remain with various coloured leaves.

My tree is almost bare.

Most of the leaves are on the ground or blown away.

 

Last night we received another big parcel from our friend in Regina.

OMG, there were so many wonderful items.

Alvin loved his package and as always was quite entertaining as he opened his present.

He always gets so excited.

For some reason I am experiencing technical difficulties downloading/uploading the photos of our treats from my phone to the computer.

Alvin had a lovely bag of SNAUSAGES.

Which he loves.

There was an apple pie complete with my initials.

Homemade cheese buns (which I absolutely adore) and regular buns.

Cookies with filling.

A carrot and beet loaf.

A M&M milk chocolate bar, some different mixes and seasoning packets from Epicure, Cereal bars filled with fruit, Carrot jam, Almond biscuits.

Yup, carrot jam and it is divine.

 

I am likely missing something but OMG, so spoiled.

We are so spoiled.

Thank you to our friend for always making us feel on top of the world, so special.

 

Well almost time to head off downstairs.

Carpool off until next Wednesday.

One of my coworkers is giving me a ride today and my neighbour tomorrow.

Just have to take the bus home.

Not so bad.

 

I hope that you all have a great Thursday.

A reminder to myself to walk with joy in my heart,

Kindness permeating my every cell,

and treating myself and all other beings with respect.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day……

Wow, today is Thursday already.

I am always amazed at how quickly the weeks pass by.

I guess each second passes just the same as it always has but somehow as you get older …. those same seconds from when you were five or fifteen

seem to pass by more quickly.  How is that?  I know….  It always seems that the second half of things goes faster.

Like the bottom half of your favourite drink, last half of a chocolate bar, the last half of your ice cream cone (okay I definitely have food on the brain and it is 6:30 in the morning, crazy.  LOL).

The biggest one of all is your life.  After 50, yikes.  I swear that those five seconds just evaporate before they even appear.

So for anyone under the age of “20” ……. be patient and love your life and stop trying to be older, it will come soon enough.  Believe me.

All those of those over “50” ….. be patient and love your life and stop worrying about time lost or going quickly.

The in between crowd ….. it is and always will be a combination …. mixed up “too fast” or “not fast enough”.

So for this day ….. just love the time of your life that you are currently in …… those precious five seconds are just that precious.

Have a great day.

Always, Carol
