Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 26th day of July, 2015.

It is a glorious perfect morning …. sun shining check ….. blue sky check ….. cool breeze check …..

Absolutely perfect.

My neighbour is taking me to Costco to pick up a few things, okay more than a few things.

So as on Sundays I am usually making pancakes at this time or some Sundays.

I wanted to share my “Chocolate Pancake Recipe” – what could be better than chocolate for breakfast.

“Carol’s Chocolate Pancake Recipe”

2 cups flour

6 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

2 eggs

2 cups milk ( I use coconut milk beverage – the one in a box)

2 tbsp white sugar

1 tbsp cocoa  ( make it a heaping tablespoon)

1 tsp vanilla extract

Simply mix ingredients together.  Pour pancakes onto a hot skillet.

Makes enough for two people and enough for leftovers for one for a week …

Best with butter and good old maple syrup.

***  Try taking two cold pancakes and spreading peanut butter on them.  Makes a good “sandwich” for lunch.

ENJOY.

Well time to go to Costco.  No pancakes today.

Let me know what you think.

Happy Sunday Everyone.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. soon …. Pooh, soon.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 22nd day of July, 2015.

It is a beautiful sunny morning here in Edmonton.

Last night we had a lovely rain ….. we so do need it.

YAY.

Do you have mornings when you put on your clothes and go OOOH?

You have diligently, and without fail laid out the outfit the night before and all of a sudden it just does not feel right.

I have had one of these mornings.

So grateful that I had a few extra minutes for the several top changes.

The pants are okay but for some reason the top half is not cooperating this morning.

Oh the joys of being a woman.

I wonder do men fuss and stew over what they are going to wear?

I will say one thing …. I am not trying to impress anyone or everyone …. I just want to be comfortable.

For me, if I am comfortable …. I feel good and I think that I look good.

My opinion and I guess that is what counts is our own opinion.

Putting off good energy is the main thing …..

I have a few items that no matter what is going on I feel great wearing them ….. so white top …. ON.

Mr. Alvin just lays on the bed all curled up …. likely thinking “Oh Momma, how come so many trips to the closet?”

I would reply “Mr. Alvin, it is just one of those days.”

So I have now got the “crap” out of my day and it is going to be great.

Check ….. life is great.

I feel wonderful.

It rained last night so the grass looks amazing.

Needs a cut though and all of those tree shoots coming up.

Doesn’t take them long to sprout.

I hope that you have an amazing day and hopefully what you have picked out is just perfect for today.

Special Hello to: my friend “M” …… chocolate pancake recipe will be posted here on the weekend…

Always, Carol and Alvin
