Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 12th day of November, 2018.

Remembering my Dad who would have been “85” years old today.

On this overcast Monday morning I am hanging out with the pups.

Alvin and Teddy.

Yesterday had a visit with my girl and a trip to COSTCO.

So many folks at the store…..I thought 1.5 hours before closing time it would have been less busy.

I picked up some lights for my Christmas tree as sadly some of the “pre-lit lights” burned out.

So many so that it was beginning to look odd despite a couple of extra sets added.

So last night while supper was cooking I stripped the decorations from the tree and added the new lights.

Then started to place the decorations back on the tree.

I finally called it quits well into the night and took some time to watch a Hallmark Christmas movie and chill with the boys.

Here are some photos of the pups from Saturday.

I will have to study the photos if I want to decorate it more closely to what it was.

Or perhaps just let it go.

Well lots to do.

Last day before back to work.

Happy Monday ….. I can smell the coffee …… YAY.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 23rd day of February, 2017.

Yesterday I woke up with a raging headache that knocked the socks right off of me.

I stayed home from work and slept virtually all day.

Finally headache is gone and I feel so much better.

***************************************************

Today belongs to two special women in my life.

The first being my one and only sister “C.”

My sister is an awesome Mother and Grandmother and Sister and Aunt.

We have been through life together.

Been single Moms together.

We have laughed and cried together.

Danced together.

Been mad at each other.

Travelled together.

Partied together.

But will, and have always been there for each other.

She is funny, smart, nice and cool, and I am grateful that she is my sister.

No matter how far we are apart; we are always together.

Happy Birthday my Darling …..

The other special woman that shares a birthday with my beloved sister is my dear friend, “D.”

We met about thirty-five years ago.

We were both single Moms at the time, and had so much in common.

She is the most fashionable person I know.

Not only does she dress crazy well but she can decorate like no one else I know.

Not only does she always look amazing but she is smart and funny as well.

Happy Birthday my Friend.

 

Happy Birthday Ladies and I hope that life continues to treat you with great regard.

Thank you for being a part of my life and of my heart.

These are for you both.

Flowers and Chocolate Macaroons.

Special Hello to: my sister and my friend “D” …… Happy Birthday Ladies.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 30th day of October, 2016.

It is overcast and has been all weekend.

No sight of the sun.

It is on those days that one seems to lose energy.

It is on those days that one just wants to eat and to sleep.

It is on those days that you just want to bake cookies, right?

Well that I did last night.

With tomorrow being Halloween our office holds it’s Annual Halloween Potluck.

This year I decided to take my “famous” Carol’s Creepy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies.”

It is my forever Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.

Only this time as I made a quadruple batch the first ones spread out on the cookie sheet because I use butter and waited to add

a bit extra flour until after the first couple of dozen.

They are big and extra chewy, which is perfect for Halloween.

I added some more flour after that, and they were less chewy and for the final ones I added some of my “Salad Topper” which is

dried cranberries and seeds.

Decided not to take those to work in case of allergies.

But the cookies whether the first ones made or the last ones are all super YUMMY.

I have the best recipe for sure.

The past couple of days I have been trying to think of what to be this year.

Has to be easy.

Has to be something that I can make up without buying anything and voile I am going to be the “Spider Witch.”

I have black pants and a black long-sleeved top.

I have a black full length cape.

The best thing of all I have this black and purple witch hat which is unique because on the netting that comes down over the face is covered

with baby spiders.

Perfection.

I also borrowed a big spider from my daughter.

He will be placed accordingly.

I used to have spider earrings but am not sure where they may be.

If I can find them today I will be wearing them.

A bit of makeup, a couple of funky antique rings and black shoes and I am SO ready.

No current cost.

I will post my Halloween decorations tomorrow.

For Tuesday I will post a photo of me in my costume.

Hard to take a full length “selfie” of oneself.

Alvin is not too good at taking photos.

He has tried but it is not easy for the little guy.

Well time to go and have breakfast and COFFEE.

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: all those people who love to dress up and decorate for Halloween.

Always, Carol and Alvin.

Thought for the day….

Good Wednesday morning and welcome to October 17th, 2012 ….

I missed writing to you all yesterday as I took a vacation day to be at home with Alvin who had a touch of the flu.

He had awoke Monday night about 1:00 a.m. and threw up  and started things …..  we did not get to sleep until the time we were supposed to get up.

I am pleased to say that he is feeling better now.

Wow has it been windy for the past day.

The temperature is fairly mild for this time of year.

I am grateful for these days and will take each and every one of them and enjoy them to the fullest.

Two weeks today is Halloween.

Do you decorate and or dress-up?

I love to decorate the house and dress-up.

I think that I will dress up for work again.

On this windy autumn day I hope that you are loving life.

That all of your dreams are starting to come true.

That you are still dreaming of bigger and better things.

Have the best day …

Special Hello to: all those lovers of Halloween …. I hope that the weather is warm and calm for all the treaters.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
