Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 18th day of December, 2018.

Another beautiful day on the way.

Another night that Mr. Alvin and I were not able to walk – it was warm but icy.

Cannot take the chance.

Hopefully soon the ice will have cleared up and we can resume our nightly walks.

I am looking forward to the week off from work when Alvin and I can go for a couple of walks each day.

Last night one of our friend’s came for a visit.

We are always glad to have her in our home.

She brings a kind light wherever she goes.

One of the nicest folks that I have ever had the pleasure to know.

Alvin loves her.

He was trying to tell her something last night but we could not figure it out.

I think it may have to do with the plate of baking that I set onto the table.

Perhaps he would love my “sugar cookies” as much as others.

Sugar not good for puppies.

Sorry Mr. Alvin.

We also exchanged small Christmas gifts.

I shall treasure hers always.

She gave me the most beautiful Christmas Angel coasters.

Very very beautiful.

AND one of my favourite things: chocolates from PURDYS.

 

Time is counting down.

Looks like six sleeps until Christmas Eve Day.

WOW, where does the time go.

 

Are you ready?

I am pretty much there.

Just have some gifts to wrap and pick up the groceries.

Then just the cooking.

All fun things ahead.

 

I would like to wish each and every one the most glorious Christmas.

May you live in Peace, in Truth, in Harmony with Others and Nature.

May you be in good Health.

May your blessings be tenfold.

May your heart be kind and giving.

May you realize that good people do exist and that you are one of them.

May you spread joy and love all year round.

Merry Christmas and the Best New Year Ever.

 

Have an awesome Tuesday.

Time to go and catch that bus.

Gotta love public transportation but on the other hand it beats the alternative and for me that would be walking.

Work is definitely too far to walk.

 

Special Hello to: YOU

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 14th day of December, 2015.

Eleven days until Christmas Eve.

Alvin and I had a great Sunday …. the perfect extension to Saturday.

I put the finishing touches on some things around the house, wrapped gifts for work exchange and gifts for my kids.

We went to deliver Christmas cards and were invited into for a “cup of cheer” at one house.

I love going to this neighbour’s home as she is older and we always and I mean always have great conversations.

Her memory is sharp as a whip and she tells me things that I either did not know or have long since forgotten.

She loves Alvin almost as much as I do and he loves going to her house.

Not having anything to do with the “treats” that she lovingly prepares for him.

We visited for a few minutes at another neighbour and friend’s before heading home through all of the snow.

Upon arriving at home we found two young men likely in their twenties.

Literally standing in front of our house.

One had a cell phone and the other a snow shovel.

Odd combination, I thought as I did not recognize them.

I soon found out what was going on.

They were taking a FB (Facebook) Challenge to see if they could get two people out of five to give them $10.00 for shovelling their walks / driveways.

Well I was feeling in the festive mood having nothing to do with the double my friend had poured me earlier …. oh no.

More to do with the fact that I just figured that the $10.00 I had in my wallet would be money well spent to have all of that shovelling done ….

I do not mind shovelling but we have been shovelling every day…..

So they shovelled the front (including the other half of the duplex), my deck which is big and the driveway.

In the end I met two more of my neighbours ….. heard a bit of their stories …. and the shovelling was done.

Once finished I went into the house and started supper.

I figured things were okay as Mr. Alvin seemed to like them just fine and they liked him, too.

I hope that they found one more house in the time period allotted which was a total of 40 minutes.

Well guess I had better get this show on the road.

I also SKYPED with my sister and my great niece.

It was nice to catch up face to face.

It reminded me of when I was a little girl and dreamed of the days that we could speak and see the person you were talking with ….

I had the idea …. likely not first but I did have it when I was a young girl. ┬áThat was a long time ago …….

Happy Monday.

Do something today that you have never done before …… try something new.
