Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 6th day of April, 2019.

Waking up to gloominess.

Where oh where has the beautiful bright sunrise gone?

The sky is that grey.

That gloomy colour.

The one that does not give you energy to get up and go.

Thankfully I have the pups for that …. Alvin and Teddy.

Playing already this morning.

I am so grateful that Teddy has arrived in our lives.

He gives us energy and Alvin plays now.

Even when Teddy is not around.

He grabs his toys and runs around the house; sometimes throwing them into the air.

Sometimes Alvin’s gregarious nature startles Teddy a bit, I think.

Perhaps a bit too “social.”

But they definitely are good friends.

Last night for dessert while hanging out with the boys.

I had a Baileys Banana Chocolate Frozen Dessert.

You know a little frozen banana pieces, throw in some coconut milk, a nice heaping tablespoon of dark cocoa and some BAILEYS, just a nice healthy splash.

VOILA ….. delicious.

As it was better frozen – I had to eat while in that state.

By the time I was done – a little buzz.

Just something I threw together while I watched “Kathie Lee Gifford’s last TODAY SHOW as a regular HOST.

I am sure going to miss that wicked sense of humour, her light, her kindness and her talent.

She can take a blah day or a sad moment and turn it all round with one lift of her eyebrow and a turn of her mouth.

In my previous post I did not mention her writing.

Songs, books both adult and children, plays and movies.

She sings, acts and really could have been a stand-up comedian.

 

Really there is not much this lady has not accomplished and is still accomplishing well into her 60’s.

I salute you Kathie Lee and look forward to hearing your news and music, and watching your movies.

Definitely a legend.

All the Best.

 

Bedtime for me and the boys.

They each had a chew treat.

Of course, Mr. Alvin wanted Teddy’s even though he had his own.

Oh, me Alvin.

What am I going to do with you?

 

The boys with me in my office while I write this blog post.

They patiently wait for me.

Well before a riot breaks out I had better grab the boys and head to the shower.

Too much sitting around for the boys can mean only one thing – “trouble.”

 

Wishing you all a wonderful Saturday.

May the light shine on us always.

Good Health, Joy and so much laughter that you almost pee your pants.

That is what I wish for you …..

 

Special Hello to: my friend “LE” who is celebrating a birthday today.  Happy Birthday.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 5th day of September 2014.

Thoughts of Joan ..

Yesterday we lost one of our comedic legends and all time entrepreneurs.

There seemed to be nothing this woman could not do.

She was 81 and still going strong.

She made us laugh.

She made us cry.

She made us wish we could laugh or cry.

She gave us hope ….

She made us realize that no matter your lot in life you could do it all.

She did not have an easy life by any means but she lived I think a great life.

She designed beautiful jewellery for us to wear.

She was an inspiration when I decided to make jewellery.

She was an inspiration to women everywhere.

Every time she was on the Shopping Channel I would tape each airing so that I could watch them later.

I did not want to miss her jokes, her jewellery ….. that incredible wit and timing ….

I hold in my possession some of the watches and other jewellery she made; treasured reminders of a great lady.

She even designed stuff to make it appear you had more hair.

She most recently designed a clothing line.

Always crazy busy ….

This lady was on television and graced the stage.

She always had an opinion about who wore what and many other things.

But we loved her because she said what most would not.

We loved her because when most people were retiring or retired she was still full of energy and going strong.

She had that light ….. that star quality ….

I wished that her light could have burned a bit longer but she leaves behind a great legacy that we shall treasure and remember always.

I know that I will.

 

To her family and friends … she was the best.

You could just tell that her daughter Melissa and grandson Cooper were the bright lights of her life.

Joan Rivers now rests amongst the stars near our beloved Robin Williams.

The glow in the heavens is so bright ……

 

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
