Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 16th day of August, 2017.

TODAY is the birthday of one of my dear friends.

Happy Birthday “V” from me and Alvin ….

 

What a busy wonderful past week plus this has been.

I have seen family and friends that I have not seen for awhile.

It has been great.

Yesterday, Me Alvin had his teeth cleaning and thankfully he had no extractions.

I was so grateful for that …..

Once he woke up they tried to take him outside for a bathroom break but all he did was cry for his Momma and to come home.

They called me at 1:30 less than 2 hours after he had his teeth cleaning and nails trimmed.

I left right away and am grateful that the Vet is only a 5-7 minute walk from our house.

He was happy to see me as was I ….. he wanted to get out right away.

It was hard to contain him …..

Once paid the bill and received the post dental care sheet we were on our way.

He had no side effects.

Pretty much ran home.

Drank water ….. jumped onto the sofa …..

I only gave him a portion of his food for supper as directed by the Vet.

He clearly wanted more so I gave him some carrots.

Glad it went well.

 

Last night I was invited for dessert and tea to the home of a friend and neighbour.

Another friend was there as well.

I had left Alvin at home and my other friend had her dog there so I decided to go and get Alvin.

At first he was a bit excited but calmed down soon which was good.

My friend made the most delicious treats.

It was like having the High Tea at the Hotel Selkirk – Fort Edmonton Park.

We had egg salad on croissant,  cucumber on cream cheese on croissant and, garden tomatoes on cream cheese.  So good.

She also had chocolate dipped strawberries on a bed of cream cheese & mallow with blueberries.  WOW, good.

Mini vanilla and chocolate cupcakes.

AND this so good fruit lemonade and TEA.

They gave me gifts on top of the beautiful treats.

I was going to take my camera and then decided not to ….. wished that I had.

It was so sweet and so thoughtful.

 

So today getting things ready for more company.

So lucky.

Friends coming from out of province to go shopping at West Edmonton Mall, and to attend a Metallica concert here in Edmonton.

My daughter and I are meeting them later on in the afternoon for coffee and to visit.

They will stay with me and Alvin for the night.

So excited to see everyone.

 

I had better get going.

What a great vacation I am having.

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 26th day of July, 2017.

Today’s forecast is HOT.

Last night Ed Sheeran and James Blunt were entertaining those lucky enough to attend the concert here in Edmonton.

Sadly, I was not one of them.

But I am grateful to the videos posted so that I could hear just a bit of them perform.

So good.

 

Well here we go two weeks from today I turn 60.

I cannot believe it.

Six decades.

How did that happen?

In a blink of an eye.

So much to look forward to …. spending time with family and friends.

That is the best part of the birthday thing.

Time with family and friends.

 

All too often we take for granted family and friends until it is too late.

So take some time today, tomorrow, next week and call someone …. SKYPE someone …. spend time with those you love.

I hope that we all get to live a long, joyful life …..

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who take precious time out of their days to read this blog, means the world to me.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 27th day of July, 2014.

It is a grand day here in Edmonton at my home.

My daughter is downstairs finishing (tying off) the necklaces for our wedding jewellery order.

I am writing this my “1301” blog.

Alvin is lying in the hallway outside the office/bedroom door.

One of my grand-puppies is with my daughter and the other with my son-in-law still snoozing.

We are just getting ready to go for day two of cleaning.

Day one was just moving the odds and ends that were left behind from the big move and smaller trips.

Day two is the nitty gritty ….. cleaning …..

First off, I am going to take Alvin and Miss Penny for a walk.

They have been slightly neglected the past few days.

They deserve a nice walk.

There is a nice cool breeze coming in through the small opening (left window open).

Feels nice.

Thank you again to my first follower and the 500th and everyone in between.

I am so very grateful for your kindness, generosity of time and support.

Time to sip that last coffee and then get ready to go for a walk.

Have a great Sunday.

Oh, did I mention that I booked off from the store ….. I always work there on Sundays.

A regular fixture…..  giggling ……

Special Hello to: all those people back in Saskatchewan who enjoyed Beyonce and Jay-Z last night.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 15th day of August 2013.

Yes, thank you to have over half of the month still to come.

What a hot humid day we had yesterday, and the forecast is for the same today.

Alvin is feeling better – thank goodness.

I am so grateful.

When he isn’t feeling well – I am frightened.

It is hard when they cannot tell you what is wrong.

So on this day ….. I am so grateful for all the great things in my life.

Family which includes Alvin, Penny and Elton our beloved pets.

They truly are like family.

Families come in all shapes and sizes and ages and you love them all the same.

On this Thursday spread the love to all your family and friends.

Let them know how much you mean to them.

BE grateful for all of them.

They help shape the texture of your life.

Special Hello to: all the dogs, cats and other pets I hope that you are loved and watched over.

Also to all my friends and family back in Regina – I hope that you had an amazing time at the  Paul McMartney concert last night.

Always, Carol and Alvin
