Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 30th day of May, 2018.

It is raining outside right at this very moment.

Rain, glorious rain.

Rain, happy, rain.

So pleased that it is raining.

Just a nice steady rain.

The kind that soaks into the ground and provides proper moisture.

The grass is happy and green.

The flowers are happy and blooming in extra vibrant colours.

The trees are dancing in their roots with joy.

So glad for the rain.

 

Oh how I love Humphrey the Cat.

What a guy.

This morning he wanted me to pick him up.

After 5 seconds he wanted down.

Then up and then down.

Playing a game.

He was a bit out of sorts because last night my visits were not lengthy in duration.

I opened the window for him after work to enjoy the fresh air.

Filled up food dishes and changed the water for Humphrey and Cinder.

Stopped by after my walk with Alvin for a few minutes.

After my unexpected company I went back to close the window and spend some time with him.

We played peek-a-boo …. he is quite the cat.

He knows what he wants and when.

He is orange with long hair and he knows it.

Enjoying our time together.

 

So my unexpected company.

A friend had asked if I wanted to order from NORWEX, I said that I would as she always has supported my STEEPED TEA business.

Ended up having a book party which helped her out.

The Consultant from NORWEX happens and this is crazy just to live down the alley from our mailboxes, like a 5 minute walk if that.

She drove because she had not realized that I was so close.

Long story short as it is almost time to go back downstairs.

NORWEX was having a great sign-up and I decided to go for it.

So along with being a STEEPED TEA Consultant – I am a NORWEX Consultant.

I am so happy …. should be fun.

Will definitely be busy but that is okay.

Great products …. both companies.

Made a new friend who just happens to live just a short walk away.

How lucky are we?

PS Alvin likes her, too.

 

Okay time to sign off.

Have a great Wednesday.

Just goes to show that you never know what the day will bring.

Life is full of unexpected wonderful surprises.

Happy Wednesday.

 

Special Hello to: my friend “V” who always keeps busy with businesses, yes multiple businesses.  She is WONDER WOMAN.

Always, Carol

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 15th day of July, 2017.

Another hot one on the way…..it is late morning and already you can feel the heat and humidity.

I wished that I would have stayed up at 7:00 during one of the times that Alvin had my out of bed / sofa.

But alas I did not so we went on a walk at just before 10:00 a.m. – we were only a short way into the park when Alvin decided he was ready to go home.

The breeze was cool to me but not to Mr. Alvin.

I always carry water with us but it was not enough.

I listen to the boss so we went home.

At home I watered all of my outdoor plants and flowers and moved the flower pots into the shade.  Most of them anyway.

Supposed to be 31 degrees celsius today and then much cooler tomorrow.

We really could use some more rain.

 

I wish for rain for our neighbouring province to the west, British Columbia.

I cannot get them out of my head ….. the farmers … the animals ….. domestic and wild …… the ranchers …. trees …. the people.

Please pray for rain ……

Thinking of you my neighbours …….

 

Well today is going to be low key.

As with no functioning air conditioning movement in the house makes you hot.

I have a fan thankfully and the furnace fan is helping.

I only am concerned about me Alvin but for now he is okay.

If need be we will sit on the sofa by the fan drinking coffee and eating BON BONS …… likely not the sweets but could be coffee.

Lots of water nearby for both of us.

 

Last night I held a Mary Kay party at my house.

My dear friend “G” came over and we played with makeup all evening long.

It was great.

I felt so pretty after it all …… even got my eyebrows looking good!

I shared with the Consultant and my Friend a pitcher of Steeped Tea’s Winter Sangria with ginger ale.

So yummy…. the only thing missing was some ice.

Note to self:  make some ice cubes….

 

Have an awesome day.

Keep cool and hydrated.

Stay in the shade.

Keep your pets in the shade and hydrated as well.

Remember they have fur coats on and even though you might love the heat – they do not.

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….. very soon …..

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 30th of August, 2015.

One more August day after today …. where did it go?

I had a great August …..

Celebrated many family birthdays and also friends.

Went on a road trip to see my brother.

Signed up to sell “Steeped Tea.”

Coffee dates with my girl friends.

Lots of walks with Mr. Alvin.

Enjoyed the warm summer days of August.

Even won a prize at our staff barbecue.

September is looking to be a fun month.

One of my dear friends from Regina is coming on the long weekend for a visit with me and a school chum who lives in Edmonton, as well.

Two Steeped Tea parties as a Consultant.

Saturday movie and dinner night with three of my friends that I met from Bath & Body Works.

Busy busy …… today lots to do.

Always seems like the weekends zing by.

So happy that Mr. Alvin is feeling better.

He enjoyed our walk last night ….. sniffing about …… visiting with some of his doggie friends and human ones, too.

Enjoying my mug of coffee this quiet Sunday morning …. looking forward to getting laundry done, getting prepared for my upcoming tea parties and odds and ends.

Back to work tomorrow.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Let us be good neighbours to all about us.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to: my friend “P” who is coming next Saturday for a visit ….. I am so excited.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 15th day of August, 2015.

It is overcast here in Edmonton and the deck remains wet from the rain, overnight.

We could use some moisture so it is all good.

At least here in the city.

Farmers well that will be another story.

I am so excited to be back and as always it was something so simple.

Doesn’t it just figure.

Something I could have done myself …. something I did do myself.

When plugging the computer and equipment back in I plugged it into the wrong “jack.”

Can you imagine?

The young man “Abdul” was very sweet and did not make me feel “stupid.”

I did write a few lines on FB yesterday just after I was “live” again after one week.

The troubleshooters for our cable/communications company are in a country on the other side of the world from us.

They do not know the setups (this was from the tech that came to my house).

These people just read from a script so not their fault.

He said they do not usually mention the “jack” in the script ….

If they had – I would have tried putting it in the other jack.

It is very sad that it is always about the money.

Companies having to make more and more money.

Anyway I am very grateful to have television once again and the internet.

So on with life.

I found during the week …. the house to be quiet.

So we listened to more music.

Spent more time outside.

Watched movies on DVD.

Snuggled more.

I think it was a good thing at the end of the day.

I did miss writing my blog, watching my recorded shows and going on FB.

But it was a good thing all in all.

Today I am hosting my second “Steeped Tea” party and am so excited to announce that I am now a Consultant for Steeped Tea.

I love the product and look forward to learning more as time goes on.

Well I have a bunch of things to do before my guests start arriving and thank goodness my “leader” will be leading the party and I will be watching and learning.

I had a wonderful Friday …. my daughter and grand-pups spent the day and slept over.

She helped me put together the second desk for my office and it looks great.

I will post some photos once I get the room in order (not today).

We walked with the pups in the rain.

I won a big prize at our company barbecue on Wednesday.

It was all about popcorn (hot air popcorn maker, ceramic popcorn container, popcorn to pop and Chicago mix popcorn, liquorice, M&Ms and two movies).

The popcorn tasted so yummy as we watched a movie.

Well I had better get this show on the road.

So good to be back.

I hope that you are all well and enjoying your Saturday.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: all of my friends and family who sent me wonderful Birthday wishes … it was a wonderful day.

Always, Carol and Alvin

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
