Thought for the day …….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 20th day of June, 2015.

It is a bright sunny gorgeous morning here in Edmonton and I am so excited.

The deck has been washed, flowers watered, grass trimmed, raked, tree had a manicure – check.

I even took the branches from the tree and placed them in a big container I had on the deck that had some dirt in it along with some solar lights and watered it well.

This morning the branches continue to look amazing and are a welcome addition to my deck.  Love them.

The floors inside have been washed, bathrooms done – check.

Baking and more baking done – check.

Dusting and whatever else I could think of has been done – check.

Just writing my blog and then time to get this Momma all cleaned up – check.

With time for COFFEE, of course …..

It has been a long time since I have really entertained.

I love having different kinds of parties.

My first “tea-par-TEA.”

Just less than two hours till the consultant arrives and then party guests.

We had rain yesterday late in the day and overnight ….. the grass and trees are so nice and green.

Thank you Mother Nature for giving some extra colour to my yard.

YAY ……

I am so grateful to live in such a beautiful house and have such a gorgeous yard.

Thank you so much.

My first house and I am so proud to be a homeowner.

It has now been over six years and I love it as much as I did on the first day that I unlocked the door with my own key and walked through the door.

Well I am so excited ….. better get going and get showered and dolled up.

What a great day.

Following the tea-parTEA, I am going with my daughter to a GALA that Shoppers DrugMart has been hosting for years.

We used to go for many a year and then missed a few and now we are back…..

This is a great Saturday.

Later on me and Alvin are going for a nice long walk around the big lake north of us.

I hope that you have an amazing Saturday.

Take care …..

Be kind to yourself …. do something nice for YOU.

YOU deserve it.

If you are good to yourself – you will be good to others.

Special Hello to:  all those folks out there who are hosting a tea-parTEA today …. enjoy.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 18th day of February, 2014.

It is a beautiful morning here in Edmonton.

Feels like spring ….

Just from watching some of the shows on television – I can see the insertion of the new colours for spring.

They are talking brilliant and muted pastels.

I love pastels although they for the most part do not love me.

But that does not stop me from purchasing some and proudly displaying them anyway.

So thought for the day ….. do not be afraid to wear something just because it may not be “your colour” ….

If it makes you feel good – wear it.

I love me some “baby blue”  …… that colour is my favourite pastel.

I hope that you have an amazing day …. enjoy your colours.

Special Hello to: all those fashion lovers out there who take a chance and be bold.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Earlier this morning at about “5:00” when I was outside with Alvin (he likes me to go outside with him),

I noticed that there appeared to be only “ONE” lone star in the morning sky (pre dawn) along with the most

slivery crescent shaped moon that I had ever seen.  The air was a bit on the cool side with the moisture from

the rain still lingering in the air.  I didn’t step into the grass as it was wet and wiping off Alvin’s paws is quite

enough first thing after one gets out of bed.

The air was still so my thoughts seem to shout in the atmosphere for all to hear (but of course, they could not).

Wow, it was amazing.

Now at 6:30 the sunrise is happening and the sky takes on another quite different and amazing palette of colour.

So the thought for this day is:  always take a few minutes to check out the sky and discover something new or just admire something old.

Have a blessed and amazing, awesome, terrific and GREAT day.


Always, Carol
