Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning and WELCOME to Thursday.

Second last day of the work week for me.

Looking forward to a long weekend.

Teddy and Auntie J are coming over for supper and a visit on Saturday.

Our weather is taking a downturn on Saturday as temperatures are dipping to the minus 25 range.

ARGH.

I am not looking forward to that …..

 

How about a look back on this day a few years back.

I like to do this from time to time.

************************************************

Happy Tuesday, November the 8th.  (2011)

I am so grateful for our great weather.

I wish that it would continue for many weeks to come.

Snow for Christmas would be nice.

You know the light fluffy stuff ….

Coming down softly on Christmas Eve just in time for Santa’s visit.

(A girl can dream, right!)

I know that some years Edmonton has had snow later on.

That would be great.

For all those souls basking in the white stuff ….. it will melt and very soon, I hope.

For this day ….. my thoughts are about the weather and Mother Nature’s designs on it all.

Apparently in 2011 we did not have snow.

******************************************

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 7th day of November, 2014.

WOW, one week into November ….

Isn’t that wild?

Well I survived my first Thursday night shift at the store and by that I mean I am up and ready to go to the office and then onto the store for another four hours.

I do love working at Bath and Body Works but was wondering how it would go working until 10:00 p.m. on a Thursday night but so far so good.

It was nice being in the mall on a Thursday night.

It has been raining here off and on for the past day and the deck appears to be wet this morning.

It was so nice and warm as I walked home from the bus stop last night.

I thoroughly enjoyed my walk but missed having my Alvin with me.

Well okay, then, I guess looking back on this day years back is slightly depressing.

I did not remember that we had no snow in 2011 and in 2014 it was raining.

There are a couple of things from 2014 that I will mention.

One is that I was working at Bath & Body Works back then and the kids & pups were living with us at that time.

I loved having them with us ….

Working a second job and sometimes 7 days a week had some ups and downs but it was great.

*************************************

Last night Alvin and I walked over to Teddy’s house.

Warmed up and had a nice visit.

Of course, Alvin ran right over to Teddy’s food dish.

There is always something there for him to finish.

Thankfully they do not mind.

 

Well here we go again.

Almost ready to head downstairs and gather things up for work.

So happy that today is Thursday, payday.

That is always a good thing.

Wishing you an awesome Thursday.

We, including me always have things to work on.

If we take those moments to build ourselves then we can put that forward to others.

Being kind does not only apply to rewinding video tapes.

Oh, I guess that is old school now.

But you know what I mean.

 

Mr. Alvin is patiently laying on his blue blanket.

I decided to change my bracelet from the bangle to a chain one.

So better go and do that.

 

Happy Thursday everyone.

I hope that life is treating you well.

Stay warm and if it is warm where you are …. keep cool.

 

Always, Me and The Alvin

 

 

Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Good Morning,

Welcome to Saturday the 2nd day of November, 2019.

It feels as though we are up extra early but here it is 8:00 a.m.

We have been up for a bit now as I have made the bed, gathered laundry and got dressed.

Of course we were up about 3:00 a.m. for Alvin’s routine “glucosamine chew” and bathroom break.

Then we hit the sofa for some more sleep.

Of course we were up at 5:00 a.m. so that Alvin could eat his breakfast.

He has a routine.

Now when the time changes in the middle of the night …. tonight…..

We will be disrupted for a couple of weeks until he settles into a new routine.

I am just along for the ride.

Oh well, it has been quite the experience thus far.

 

So last night.

My daughter was feeling better as she has been sick for about a week.

She went to work but by late morning was out of energy.

I know that feeling.

We decided to see if leaving work early by one hour was an option and it was, thankfully.

It feel as though I had, had a whole day off.

So nice.

During the drive to my house we decided to detour to COSTCO.

Being home sick does not help get your groceries.

We ended up home about the same time I normally get home so Alvin did not know the difference.

The late afternoon was nice once again so once Alvin had finished outside and having supper, we all went for a glorious walk.

As we approached Teddy’s house we saw his Auntie J’s car.

She was to arrive last night.

Aunt J is there to stay with Teddy while his parents go to VEGAS for two weeks.

So nice to see her and next weekend we will get together for supper and a visit.

In between we will catch some walks together if the weather allows.

Back home after the walk ….. on went the COFFEE POT ….. followed by starting supper.

Once supper was in the oven ….. we gathered up some of the Halloween decorations and took them downstairs.

My daughter remarked “that if you are going downstairs for something you might as well take something with you”

A great idea, actually as the Halloween stuff had to go downstairs at some point.

We went downstairs to bring up the Christmas Tree.

Originally my daughter was going to spend the night but being sick she thought a sleepover might be better another time.

So we brought up the tree.

Had supper.

Decided on a Christmas Movie, THE NUTCRACKER.

We always have a movie on in the background.

Moved around the chairs in the living room to accommodate the tree.

Assembled the tree only to find out that only the top lights worked on the tree.

Last year some had burned out but not that many.

The tree does not owe me anything as it is now ten years old.

Dilemma, what to do.

Luckily I had purchased extra lights last year.

By this time my daughter had to go.

I am once again grateful for her assistance.

She suggested checking out U-tube for some helpful hints on how to remove the lights from a prelit tree.

Removed her groceries from the fridge/freezer and she was on her way.

I took a look around and decided to clean up from dinner before getting into the Christmas decorating.

Once dishes were done, I sat down with a cup of coffee to assess the situation.

After watching a couple of short videos I decided that my earlier idea of snipping off the lights with my wire cutters was the best idea.

I did find out however an easier way to do this.

After everything it was after 8:00 and my energy and desire to decorate had wanned, so I just kicked back and put together a plan for tomorrow which is today.

I figured that I had all weekend which I do.

So here we are ….. Saturday morning.

Time to get things started.

Put on Laundry, the COFFEE, of course, have breakfast and then start taking off the lights.

Once done I will string the lights and then decorate.

It will take some extra time but that is okay.

A story for later.

Alvin is perhaps losing the bit of patience that a dog has …. he wants to go downstairs.

 

I hope that you have an awesome first weekend in November.

We did receive some moisture last night.

Rain followed by bit of snow.

Might be slippery out there.

I am hopeful that the temperatures will once again return to plus temperatures.

Happy Saturday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Funny as much as I love to decorate the tree and the house for Christmas; I am okay with just getting the tree up the first night and decorate the next day.

A few years ago, I would have worked through and had the tree and house decorated before going to bed.

Older and wiser?

 

 

Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning and we are cruising toward November 1, 2019.

Where did the time go?

I cannot believe it is less than two months until Christmas and then the New Year.

2020.

That freaks me out just a little bit.

When I was a child I actually thought of this year and 2025.

What would be going on in the world?

Where would my family be?

Wondering if I fulfilled my dreams of being a Registered Nurse and a Writer.

Where would I be living?

Would I be happy?

The house with the white picket fence was that in my future?

Four children ….. two girls and two boys, of course.

That was my perfection.

Grandchildren possibly.

One never knows where life will take you.

I am perfectly happy with the way that things turned out.

I am okay with the choices that I made.

Perhaps I could / should have done things differently but then I would not have and be where I am today.

It is a package deal.

You cannot have one person, one thing without the other.

So if I zigged instead of zagged …. I could have been living on a farm in southeastern Saskatchewan or perhaps in the big City of Regina or in London or New York.

I may have been married with more than one child.

I may have become a nurse.

Who knows?

But I know that the choices I made at the time were right for me at that time.

I have the most exquisite daughter.

I have my best buddy Mr. Alvin.

I have a job that sometimes drives me crazy.

I have a house which I bought on my own.

I am healthy.

Life is good.

I am surrounded by great friends.

I have the best sister and brothers on the planet.

So that is that.

I have never spent much time worrying or thinking about what may have been …..

I believe in living in the present …..

You cannot change the past but you can change the present which changes the futures.

Now that is a lot of change….

 

Just living my life trying to be kind and respectful.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning, partial overcast sky this morning.

I can see the sun on the horizon.

We had some rain last night.

A bit on the slippery side out there this morning or at least it was on the deck and the grass.

Well Alvin and I had a great Saturday.

His sister/my daughter arrived after dropping her car off to be winterized at their dealership.

We consumed “massive” amounts of pancakes (not really but it sounded good).

My friend had given me a can of maple syrup from Quebec so it was opened to use.

MMM, so good.

Happy Anniversary gift and card for my kids.I d

After breakfast, we decided it was a good opportunity to go and photograph me and Alvin for our Christmas photos.

We always take them in the fall.

Earlier in the morning I decided might be a good idea to shower and wash my hair and put on some makeup.

Paid off.

So after a few minutes of figuring out what would be good to wear and careful not to be similar to last years colours; we were off.

Jeans and a purple sweater and tank top.

Alvin wore his usual “black and white tux.”

Always so formal that guy.

We spent less time than usual snapping a few photos and for the first time using her iPhone camera.

I was happy with my hair until there was a breeze and then it was out the window.

We/I sat on rocks by the water (not that close), on the little bridge and standing.

At the end of slightly more than 30 minutes; we had some shots that were worthy of our “10th Year Photo.”

Cannot believe ten years already.

The shortest photo shoot and with a phone camera.

Who would have ever thought …. not having to lug a big camera around.

Nice for my daughter.

 

After returning home after the photo shoot, my son-in-law called an UBER for us (cause he has the APP).

I quickly changed into something less dressy.

Gave Mr. Alvin a treat.

Shortly thereafter we were on our way.

My daughter had heard about this Thrift Outlet store which is on the premise as the Recycle place.

All the items whether household or clothing or books whatever are purchased by weight.

We found a few things but it was so busy …. I am no longer happy in crowds.

After leaving there we went to the Thrift Store not far away.

It is new and looks like a Winner’s type store.

In fact, set up much the same.

Everything looks like new or close.

Needless to say we, mainly me found several items that I ended up purchasing.

Some items to hang on the wall, some small Christmas tins to put gifts in as wrapping and PJ’s.

I washed the clothing items right away …. love the pj’s.

Also found a white handmade blanket which will be washed this morning.

It is so pretty, no stains and perfect.

 

Returned home, sorted the purchases and my daughter was on her way.

I decided we would go for another walk as it was so beautiful out.

We had a great walk.

After returning home made supper and cleaned up.

I did another couple loads of laundry.

Today is finishing the laundry, hair cut and bath for the boy and baking of chocolate chip cookies for the 5th Avenue Jewelry party next Saturday evening.

It is finally light out so one can see everything clearly.

Have to decide if I will rake the leaves for the 4th time …. my tree is bare.

 

I hope that you all have an awesome day.

Thus far our weekend has been amazing.

Happy Sunday to you.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Living … One day at a time.

Morning All,

Woke to another brown ground morning.

The white stuff will come soon enough.

Despite the wind and rain mixed with snow yesterday afternoon and into the evening we missed another attempt by Mother Nature.

Another attempt to bring snow to us.

We are so grateful to have another day without the white stuff.

I love FALL or Autumn.

Surprisingly enough there are still quite a few trees with leaves.

 

TODAY is a very special day.

Today is the 4th Birthday of my eldest grandpup “Miss Aspen.”

She joined our family Christmas of 2016.

Milo joined our family this day in 2016 when he was just a baby.

 

Aspen is such a kind and gentle soul.

She has brought a calmness to our family.

She is elegant and energetic.

We just love her.

Happy Happy Birthday to our Dear Aspen.

Hugs and Kisses from Grandma and Alvin

At Grandma’s house – her favourite spot

First Christmas at our House above photo

Aspen at her home (photo below)

 

Wishing you a great day.

 

Happy Tuesday everyone.

Time to leave for work.

 

ALways, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Well it is Saturday July 6th, 2019.

Almost one week into July already …. WOW.

Another rainy day although at the moment it is only overcast.

We have been managing to get walks in around the rain for the most part.

Last night we started our walk after work in a light rain, then it stopped and when we were almost home, the rain came down.

We were wet upon arriving home.

So lucky to have seen the multiple families of geese by our park.

The babies are no longer babies.

**********************

I am so happy that you love my new office wall colour.

I love it so much.

Now for the hard part …. how to place things and what to bring into the office.

So my mind has been swirling with ideas.

Some easy but all time consuming.

So I will get my plan in place before I jump into things.

The colour is amazing.

So brilliant and GREEN.

I love GREEN.

Makes me feel so ALIVE and gives me an all around good feeling.

The office desks are a deep rich brown almost black, perhaps like an expresso colour and my book cases are about that same colour.

They play well off of the vibrant green on the walls.

I love how the green changes in different light.

 

I have also decided to paint this green on a feature wall in the living room.

All of my main furniture in the living room is rich tones of browns except for a chair that is same green palate with brown.

My accents will match perfectly.

Can you imagine how well the Christmas tree will pop in that room?

WOW, wow, wow.

So happy.

 

Well as it was a busy week filled with things other than laundry and house cleaning – time to get at it.

I always find it so strange that I can tell myself when going to bed – that I would like to get up at a specific time and that is the time I wake up.

Last night I thought 7:00 a.m. would be a good time and that was the time that I woke up.

Also noting that Alvin wanted to go downstairs at 3:22 a.m. but that is, his clock not mine.

We did go downstairs at that time and afterward hit the sofa until I woke up at 7:00 a.m.

Our thoughts can literally bring about anything.

 

Well on that note it is time to fly.

I can see laundry, cleaning and a walk in our future.

Also checking on our friend’s flowers …. although they will not require watering today.

 

Happy Happy Saturday.

Enjoy your day.

Reminder to ourselves to be KIND and RESPECTFUL.

I know that sometimes there are people who throw us off being kind and respectful …

But find your way back.

It’s okay.

 

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

P.S. longing for some sunshine but I heard a rumour that we are to have very hot temperatures this summer ….. time will tell.

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 22nd day of April, 2019.

The sky is slightly overcast this morning as the sun rises in the sky.

Forecast is for above 17 degrees celsius today.

Yesterday was glorious.

We were up in good time yesterday morning and spoke to my daughter via the telephone followed by a call from my friend P to go for a walk with her and her grand pup Georgie.

Just when I was sipping my coffee we received another phone call from our friend V in Regina, Saskatchewan.

The phone rang off the “wall” so to speak yesterday morning.

So great to chat to the girls.

Alvin and I met P and Georgie at the entrance to the nearby park and then continued for a nice long walk.

Just a few minutes into the walk we noticed a bright white flock above us filling the sky.

I was distracted by a larger dog and was paying more attention to Alvin and the dog than the birds.

P told me quick look it is a flock of SWANS.

She had heard on a news report that there were swans in our area.

This is not their normal flight route.

A historical flight change for sure.

The sky was white with the huge number of swans.

In all my years I have never seen a swan flying overhead.

How cool is that?

We continues about our walk and enjoyed everything that nature had to offer us.

Everyone was out walking their pups yesterday.

One hour later we returned home.

We, well I spent the day taking apart the office.

Everything down from the walls, packed up the closet and filled two garbage bags.

There are still a number of items and boxes to take to the basement for storage.

Once the room is clean except for the computer desk and chair; I will begin to prepare for painting.

Then at some point – there will be new paint in my office and I will finally hang my bulletin boards that my daughter made me for Christmas a few years ago (3 actually).

Sometimes it takes a while to get things done.

ARGH.

I also pressure washed the deck yesterday early afternoon.

Alvin and I even went for another walk late afternoon – early evening – 30 minutes.

Lots of exercise for us.

Was so great to get it all cleaned and now ready to put out the patio/deck furniture.

I might just put out a few things for now.

Another successful day.

Today will be shower for me after this post, then make pancakes, put on another load of laundry, COFFEE, take boxes and items to the basement and give Mr. Alvin a bath.

I am hoping to trim his front paws and legs a bit more before the bath.

I am excited to have today plus tomorrow off from work.

Feeling like I am accomplishing so much this weekend.

The weather has been great for walks.

Perhaps our daughter/sister might pop by today for a visit.

I will make pancakes and perhaps that will bring her here this morning.

Well time to hop into the shower.

Already changed our bedding.

All fresh for clean human and dog tonight.

We will be freshly clean as well.

 

I am so grateful to have this beautiful house.

I am so grateful for my daughter and her family.

I am so grateful for my sister and brothers.

I am so grateful for all our family.

Young and old.

I am grateful to have had this extra long weekend to get some tasks/chores accomplished; to have had extra walks and to have had some wonderful relaxation time.

Feeling pretty great.

 

Big celebration today is EARTH DAY.

Please be kind to our Earth this day and everyday.

Pick up trash.

Don’t destroy our Environment.

Turn off unnecessary lights.

Plant a tree.

We can all work together and make a difference.

Celebrate this beautiful planet we call EARTH.

Happy Earth Day.

Be kind to our precious EARTH.

Happy Earth Day.

 

 

Have an awesome Monday.

So much to celebrate today.

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 27th day of January, 2019.

Well the WIND has been howling all night long.

There has been rain off and on throughout the night and morning.

Sky is overcast with no sign of sunshine.

Yesterday was glorious.

Although I will say that part of the walk to Alvin’s appointment was nerve wracking.

Once we got out to the street that runs to the Vet’s clinic, the sidewalk walk ICY.

I luckily last minute decided to put the picks on the bottom of my boots.

Taking baby steps it took us almost ten minutes for that part of the walk that usually takes two or three.

But we made it.

We got in right away and Dr. K examined his eye and determined that yes, he will need surgery to have the growth removed.

She figured that perhaps that area had been scratched which lead to the discolouration and subsequent infection.

Instead of having his regular appointment for his nails and anal glands and his vaccination – I made an appointment for him to have all of this done as well as his teeth cleaned.

Better to have it all done all at once.

Less stress for him.

They gave me an estimate for the surgery.

We have insurance and hopefully part of the costs will be covered.

The staff at the clinic will submit the estimate to see how much will be covered.

But it has to be done so that is that, they said.

Alvin is doing well.

We were prescribed some ointment for his eye for the infection.

On our way home … just at our house …. we spotted Humphrey and his Mom.

They were having a bit of a walk and fresh air.

Mainly the fresh air as he likes to sniff about our yards.

She has him on a leash and he looked so cute.

He is doing much better.

I invited them into the house for a visit and coffee, as I did not have time to drink much of my coffee before leaving to the appointment for Alvin.

My friend can not drink regular coffee so she left Humphrey with us and drove quickly to the neighbourhood MacDonald’s for a decaf coffee.

We had a great visit and talk about Humphrey’s surgeries  and huge bills and Alvin’s estimated cost of his, among other things.

After they left for home, I quickly did more laundry, cleaning, transplanted two plants from Christmas into one pot and vacuumed.

Our company arrived at 3:00 p.m. – my cousins.

We had a great visit stopping for supper about 5:30 or so and then continuing to visit and eat.

They left about 9:30 p.m.

What a wonderful visit we had …. I was tired.

Busy day.

So this morning …. we did not get to bed until after 11:00 p.m. and were up at 5:30 a.m. …. Alvin went outside and then ate his breakfast.

We went back to the sofa for some extra zzz’s as I was not quite ready to get up and then ended up sleeping until 8;45 a.m. – disappointed.

I wanted to be up about 7:30, oh well.

Today is going to be a more relaxed day than yesterday although I do have a few things to do and the most important being calling my sister.

We have not chatted in awhile and it is time.

I miss her.

Well before the phone call – get dressed, put on the last of the laundry, have breakfast and COFFEE.

There is always the getting ready for the work week ….. lay out clothing …. make lunch but I am grateful that I have leftovers from last night’s supper for tonight and

for a couple more lunches / suppers.

YAY, me.

 

Have an awesome day.

Well it is now snowing so I had better get dressed pronto and get outside and pick up the poop that has collected since last night.

My little pooper.

 

Wishing you a great day.

I will say just once more thing …. looking out the front window there are huge puddles of water (not frozen) and on the sidewalk in front of my house and now looking

out the office window it is snowing.

What a place we live in …..

It is not freezing rain …. at the moment it is snow.

 

Happy Sunday.

Stay safe, warm and share some laughter.

I remember the laugher I had with my cousins last night.

We had a wonderful time.

 

Special Hello to: my sister …. will call you about 1:30 p.m. …….YAY.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Busy weekend and also a busy week ahead …..

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 27th day of December, 2018.

It remains almost dark outside at just after 8:30 a.m. …..

 

Last night I happened across the “Kennedy Centre Honours.”

They were honouring Cher, Reba, two other entertainers and the Broadway Musical “Hamilton.”

I missed the first part for Reba but saw the rest including the last honouree CHER.

I love CHER and was so nice when her friend Cindy Lauper sang her songs.

Of course, this made for yet another late night and late getting up.

I guess we are going to have to start going to bed at our usual time.

Alvin has been eating at odd times and once back to work he will have to eat before I leave for work.

 

Well yesterday was a lazy day around this house.

I/We did not do too much.

So today we have to get some things done such as laundry.

A walk will be nice.

Pretty much all of yesterday there were these gorgeous fat snowflakes slowly coming down.

The deck requires some shovelling as does the driveway, very likely.

Exercise will get us going.

I also have to go to the Post Office at Shoppers.

 

Looking out our front window this morning the branches of our tree and others were covered in snow.

Those big delicious snowflakes that were falling down from the heavens landed everywhere including on the trees.

So beautiful.

The sky is white.

The ground is white.

The rooftops are white.

White, white, and more white.

Perhaps today the sun will shine.

I will say that the white is the perfect frame for our houses.

Our homes remind me of a little village in the Swiss Alps (not that I have been there).

But from pictures.

That would be out front.

That would be our duplexes … the design ….

 

I just took a minute to read over my posts from prior years.

It was not until after 2010 that I started to do on a regular basis “Thought for the day.”

Last year 2017 was COLD and Alvin had his regular vet appointment on this date.

We were lucky to have had a ride to this appointment.

Weather not warm but not cold – somewhere in between  which is nice.

Good for walking.

Seems like we have had a variety of “turkey dinners.”

One year or two it was TOFURKEY, last year I followed Jamie Oliver’s roasting method for the turkey and one year we had Christmas dinner catered at my daughter’s new house.

I had remembered that there were lots of potatoes but apparently according to my posts there was not.

I am glad that we try new things in amongst our traditions.

Keep things fresh.

 

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

Time to have a shower.

Perhaps that will give me some get up and go.

There is something about a white/grey sky with no sunlight that makes me want to sleep.

I do want to do some things during my 11 day break from work (including weekends).

 

So happy December 27th, 2018, EVERYONE.

I hope that you are enjoying this day whether at home or at work.

 

My big debate is when to put away the Christmas Tree and decorations.

Do I wait until New Year’s Day?

Or perhaps New Year’s Eve.

I work on the 2nd of January so taking them down on New Year’s Day takes a good chunk of the day.

Maybe New Year’s Eve or perhaps on the 30th.

I love the decorations.

Perhaps on the 30th so that I am ready for the New Year ….. all fresh and clean.

Still do not know.

I have a couple of days to decide.

 

Well time to go and have that shower.

Happy Thursday.

 

Special Hello to: all of my family and friends all over the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 16th day of December, 2018.

Well I would like to say that yesterday was super productive but I cannot.

Well I could say that yesterday instead that yesterday was a mix of rest and work.

I have a few things left that I wanted to get done this weekend.

This year I gave baking to “31” people.

Ranging from small cookies bags to large tins and containers.

I have a few left to hand out but they are all done and I had enough baking for them all.

 

I have Christmas wrapping to do but I will do that one night this week.

Finishing up some laundry today.

The coffee is now brewing.

Bathrooms and vacuuming to do.

The big stuff.

But I am feeling better today.

Yesterday I was just tired due in part to the tooth extraction.

One is supposed to relax and not be doing heavy work ( I guess vacuuming would fall into that category).

Oh well I can get it all done in a short amount of time.

Work has been ultra draining as of late, as well.

I will go after work on Friday and pick up the food for the Christmas party that I am hosting on Saturday next and for Christmas.

Then Saturday will just put the finishing touches on the party.

One quick “sweep” and putting the food and beverages in order.

I got this.

Oh and yes, I finally put the menu together for the Christmas party.

YAY.

Only took a couple of months.

Simple, someone said.

 

Mini Quiches

Caramelized Onion Cheese Dip (hot) – served with baguette

Pita Chips and Crackers

Red Chilli Jelly

Boursin Cheese – Cranberry with Cracked Black Pepper

Veggie tray ( carrots, grape tomatoes, cucumber and peppers) with dip

Sausage, cheese, pickles and crackers – one of the girls is bringing

Assorted Christmas cookies baked with love by Me.

 

Well I should get going.

Get dressed.

The last load of laundry is washing.

Coffee is perking.

Blog almost done.

Then breakfast and then vacuuming and bathrooms.

Afterwards time for a shower as I am going with my kids to see the Christmas Light Show at the Zoo.

 

I hope that you have a wonderful Sunday.

Everything is as perfect as you make it.

 

Special Hello to:  my sister ….

Always, Carol & Alvin
