The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! Well it is Saturday morning. YAY. Light outside but the sky is not blue and the sun is not shining at the moment. I hope that all is well with you. We are doing well. Same old story with us. Up early early and then slept in. Oh, I have quite the life, I do.

I am so happy to have a long weekend ahead of us. I was thinking that perhaps we may get outside for a walk with all of the recent snow that is covering parts of the sidewalks and helping to make it more safe to walk.

I was also uploading photos from my phone to the computer and ran into a snag. Appears that they did not save. Man, technology sometimes can be a “pain in the butt.” It really can. Maybe it is me but maybe not. I know that my both my phone and especially my computer are getting older and technology is not something that gets better with age. Definitely not like us humans! I hope that both my phone and computer hang in there for a bit longer. Fingers crossed.

I was thinking of more television sitcoms that I watch and perhaps that I missed saying in yesterday’s post. Did I mention GHOSTS? I watched it last night. It is so funny. This is perhaps one of the best seasons for SITCOMS. There are so many and they are so good. There are so many that I do not watch. I watch enough television as it is and cannot fit more in, lol. Watching t.v. shows and movies is my source of entertainment. I do not travel or often even leave my neighbourhood so this is how I enjoy my spare time. I do write in my spare time but not enough. That book or books will never get written if I do not spend more time writing. I always come out of the gate hot and then after a short time, give up. Not sure why – there are likely a million reasons. But I will continue sharing with all of you, my life stories, some photos, perhaps some of wisdom that comes from age and whatever else I can think of. Isn’t that really what life is all about – sharing? I think so.

Wishing you a wonderful Saturday. I really need to have a shower and COFFEE.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus and possibilities.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 16th day of February, 2015.

It is an overcast, gloomy snowy morning here in Edmonton.

It is bright and sunny inside my house.

As per my daughter’s request I made pancakes for breakfast.

We enjoyed them with real maple syrup (the expensive golden liquid) and fruit.

Love pancakes ……

Followed by a hot cup of coffee.

After breakfast Alvin and I danced to Sam Smith “I’m not the Only One.”

Alvin placed his paws on my shoulder and although he seemed to hold on for dear life …. I believe deep down that he loves to dance with his Momma.

At least in my mind …..

So far “Family Day” has been great.

We are just preparing to sit down and make some jewellery.

Some new pieces for our “DEAR STELLA JEWELLERY.”

We both being creative …..

My daughter is into so many creative outlets …… photography, jewellery, artist journaling and collage …..

So exciting.

Well time to get out of the pyjama’s and into some comfy pull on pants (sweats) and a t-shirt.

YAY ….. I have the whole day off and at home.

I am so happy when I can spend the day at home with Alvin and my daughter ….. not to forget the grand-pups …….

Unfortunately my son-in-law had to work today ….. boo to the Feds …..

Have a great Family Day to everyone, and even if you do not have it as a holiday I hope that you have a day to be with your family.

Time to go and get ready to make jewellery.

Have an awesome day.

Special Hello to: all my family and friends …. Happy Family Day.

Always, Carol and Alvin
