Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning,

YAY, today is Friday.

Always happy to see Friday as look forward to this day and the weekend.

Okay, a few days late.

Here are some photos.

I took the first five of the tree in front of my house while I was waiting for my ride in the morning.

The next four photos are of same tree but the next morning after the freshly fallen snow.

I love my tree.

It looks good fully clothed with leaves or with snow or even bare.

It is amazing how the snow just piles up on the branches with the underneath bare.

Handsome looking tree.

 

Government announced yesterday:

Affordable Housing.

They are going to streamline the information/process that is required for housing.

Making it easier for applicants, clients and in the end the staff.

Sounds like good news for everyone.

 

This weekend it is continuing with and finishing all of the Christmas Cards and letters.

Alvin needs a bath and I am debating as to whether or not I will give him a trim.

Will see.

My new wreath is being dropped off tonight.

I am submitting a STEEPED TEA order this evening.

Bit of shovelling to finish.

There is always the laundry and cleaning.

I want to look through the items that I have for gifts and see where I am at ….

Plan the baking …..

Make a list of those to have over for Christmas treats and visit before the big day.

Lots to do, always.

 

Well life continues to be interesting, amazing and full of surprises.

At this moment in time, I am happy, healthy and excited.

Starting the day with a SMILE is always a great thing.

 

Wishing you the best Friday ever.

Smiling.

Kindness

Respect

 

Three good words.

 

Always, Carol & Mr. Alvin

 

Mr. Alvin is laying on his pretty blue blanket.

He loves curling up on it while I type/key away on the computer.

Which reminds me that I must start deleting photos that are blurry, dark or duplicate from my computer.

Some should be printed or made into albums.

That should be a weekly project.

Spending a few hours every week working on the photos.

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 28th day of July, 2018.

The sun is shining brightly and there remains a bit of coolness from the night air.

I have the windows open so that we can cool off the house.

It is already begin to warm up.

Today is to be a warm one and tomorrow even more so.

I love the weekends.

Time at home with Alvin.

Time to fuss with my flowers and garden.

Time to do things around the house.

Having your one house is wonderful.

I will admit that sometimes having everything to do myself – can be a bit much but at the end of the day – it is all worthwhile.

I LOVE my house.

 

We are preparing for our company.

Plans changed and everyone is staying here.

Have lots to do so that it is all done as they arrive Tuesday evening and I work Wednesday.

It will be great to see everyone.

Following the company will be my mini vacation with my daughter …. just a few days but I am so excited to get away.

 

Alvin has his regular Vet appointment for nails and such this morning.

Followed by a hair cut and bath by his Momma.

Laundry to finish.

Bedding.

Grass to cut.

The list is long but that is okay …. it will get done.

I have two days, I have the weekend.

 

Life is life.

Plans change.

I have found that much better to go with the flow than to stew too much.

Oh, do not get me wrong, I still can stew with the best of them.

But it is usually short lived.

Just like work.

I plan to get this and that done and ten minutes into it – I have a million phone calls, an unexpected meeting or unexpected clients arrive at the office and need to see me.

That is life.

Right.

 

Have an awesome day.

Just enjoying life.

I hope that you are as well.

 

Well time to fly.

Have an awesome Saturday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister – just three sleeps – the countdown is on.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 30th day of October, 2014.

One more sleep until Halloween and the last day of October 2014.

I have been trying to decide on a Halloween costume for the office.

I am working out front at the office seeing clients, and then from there going to work at the store.

So it has to be something easy that I can just change out of at lunch time.

I shall miss seeing all of the little ones coming to my house.

We shall see …… always time to change one’s mind.

Do you throw together something from your closet and house for a costume?

I think it is much more fun to throw something together …. put those creative juices to work.

Some news.

I found out from my neighbour that the yellow cat that has been showing up at our homes off and all for the past couple of months actually has a home a short distance away.  What a relief.  The cat has a name “Barney.”  That so suits him.  I had thought that “he” was a “she” but then again it was just a feeling as I thought that a male cat would not warm up to the dogs like it did but I was incorrect.  That is okay.  I am so thankful that the cat has a home.  Barney was a farm cat – a barn cat at that and likes to get out of the house from time to time.  Anyway we are all happy that we did not find a forever home for him or keep him only to find out that he had a home.  My neighbour even put a notice up on the computer.  Guess there was a reason.

Last night my daughter and I went to visit my nephew and her cousin.  He is now in the neurological unit.  Definitely seems to be improving although he has not come out of the coma yet.  When I mentioned his brother’s name he became very active. I will take that as good sign.  We will continue to be hopeful.

So on this Thursday I hope that life is treating you kindly, and that you are treating life with kindness.

Happy Thursday.

Special Hello to: my sister ……. will talk to you soon.

Always, Carol and Alvin
