Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 20th day of June, 2018.

Last day of spring and tomorrow is officially SUMMER.

Our forecast is for +29 degrees celsius today.

Yesterday was another HOT one.

Thankfully we have been getting up and going on our walks bright and early in the morning.

The air was so nice and refreshing this morning.

We are both enjoying our early morning walks.

 

My carpool just called and is sick so I will be leaving shortly to catch the bus.

Have to close all of the windows that I opened which brought the inside temperature down by two degrees.

YAY.

 

I hope that you all have a wonderful Wednesday.

Stay cool.

Be safe.

DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN OR ANIMALS IN THE CAR EVEN FOR A MOMENT.

IT WILL BE TOO HOT.

 

Special Hello to:  my sister …..

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 8th day of March, 2016.

After Alvin’s supper and stuff last night we opted to clean the deck and the front walk instead of traipsing through the wet snow that is covering most of the neighbouring sidewalks.

Man, what a workout.

Shovelling that heavy wet snow as it felt like lifting a shovel full of water only it was coloured.

Good for the arms and core, I would imagine.

Alvin had fun sniffing about as I shovelled.

He also ran to our neighbour’s beside us (not other half) and went right up her steps …. she saw us and came out.

We usually take turns shovelling ….. we just had beat her outside.

Alvin really loves her and like to snuggle any chance he gets …. so cute.

While he visited we chatted and I shovelled.

Multi-tasking at its best.

I am gearing up for a busy weekend.

One of my neighbour’s is having a Steeped Tea party at my house on Saturday (so convenient for me) following that a small intimate birthday party for my daughter.

So lots of baking and cooking to do…… YAY.

Sunday morning coffee with my girl pals.

 

Okay, what happened to the morning ….. it is time to leave for work.

The temperature is to be plus 2 today and then 7-9 plus degrees over the next few days and into the weekend.

So excited.

Spring is here.

 

I hope that you have an amazing day.

We should always remind ourselves to be KIND and RESPECTFUL to every living creature not just the two-legged ones.

Until tomorrow.

 

Special Hello to: my friends all over the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 17th day of August, 2015.

Wow another August Monday morning to enjoy.

The sun is coming up a bit later each morning …. shorter days.

The air is cool as summer slowly turns into fall.

I love late summer and fall.

Most especially fall.

After last week’s blast of hot hot air it is a good 10 degrees cooler during the day.

Much easier at night for people to sleep as it gets quite cool during the night.

The temperature in the house was 68 degrees F, this morning.

Well Alvin and I had an unusual Sunday as my neighbour in the other half of our duplex held a “front lawn sale” ….

We ended up out front from basically 9:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Few inside breaks as it was kind of cool to be just sitting …..

It was relaxing and fun.

I found some items that I could use so helped with her sales.

Alvin enjoyed all the folks who stopped by.

I had him on a leash and at some points sitting on my lap to help keep me warm.

Ended up with a winter vest on and thankfully I had put on socks (yup socks with sandals).

We even weeded our front flower beds in between customers.

Leftovers of peach salsa and tortilla chips for lunch and a couple pots of hot coffee.

Well time to get going to the office.

I hope that you all had some time to yourself and enjoyed your weekend.

If you were working I hope that you did take some “me” time.

Happy Monday.

Special Hello to: yes, sister …. so far this tea venture has been great …. am loving it.  Lots to learn.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 5th day of July, 2015.

Wow almost one week into July of 2015.

Summer is zipping along.

Today is overcast and COLD ….. yes, I am saying COLD.

The high for today is about 20 degrees celsius compared to the 30 degree weather of last week and Friday …. feels cool.

I will be putting on a sweater in the house.

I do hope that it rains as we could use some moisture.

Nice change to be on the cool side, though.

Yesterday my daughter picked us up (me and Mr. Alvin) and we travelled to their house.

They live about 15 minutes away by car.

Just a short drive.

Mr. Alvin does not appreciate a car ride.

I love their new house ….. the smell of a new house ….

But he made it there and back.

My daughter took me to some of the places that they have discovered since moving to their new home.

This indoor market that has a cool cafeteria style restaurant ( we stopped for lunch, yummy ).

The big deal for us was to explore a couple of antique stores ….. we spent a few hours just looking at all of the dishes, jewellery, cans, furniture, small household gadgets.  So much.

I found a couple of items.

One was a twisted copper wire wreath.

It fits in my main bathroom which has copper coloured accessories.

The other was a hand painted box with a drawer (could be used for almost anything …. jewellery….. office supplies…..teas.

Good prices on my items.

The other big find for me wasn’t at an antique store but at the local Winners store ….

Alvin has short legs and I wanted to replace the IKEA ottoman that I had with something a bit bigger.

I found a long ottoman which had a big label “MADE IN THE USA” …… so that was a bonus.

Like to use and buy items made in Canada or the USA.

The ottoman matches my current bedroom colours which was nice.

Unfortunately it is taking Mr. Alvin some time to get used to it.

He did use the ottoman twice, but this morning after jumping up onto the bed using it, he jumped over it coming off the bed.

Oh my Mr. Alvin ….. hopefully he will warm up to the new piece of furniture which was bought just for him ….

Well time to go and have a late breakfast ….

Mr. Alvin and I thoroughly enjoyed the time with our family.

Mr son-in-law is healing nicely from his fall down the stairs ( remember do not text and go down stairs).

I had the best five days off (including this weekend) from work.

WE are going to enjoy this last day before back to the regular routine.

Have a happy Sunday.

Perfect day for walking …. not warm.

It is windy though.

Special Hello to: my friends all over the planet ….. hi everyone.

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. I started a new necklace …… lots of small seed beads so it is going to take a while to complete.  Am excited.

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 17th day of May, 2015.

It is bright and sunny outside.

It also feels warmer outside than inside my house this morning.

Guess turning the thermostat off was not a great idea.

This morning it was 61 degrees ….. I don’t have a celsius thermostat.

But blankets and sweaters helped.

No wonder all I wanted to do this morning was stay cuddled under the blankets.

It was Mr. Alvin who convinced his Momma to get up and get to it.

First thing I did was open all the blinds and the house warmed by a whole degree.

Amazing how warm that sun’s rays are ……

I had not downloaded my flowers that I bought for the deck and front porch until just now.

Flowers always make me feel great so thought that I would share them with you.

Once it warms up a bit it will be planting time.

They spent the night in the garage as it was forecasted to freeze last night and I did notice a bit of frost on one of the neighbour’s car windows.

After this blog I need to bring the pots back out onto the deck so they can enjoy the sunshine.

I hope that this flowers bring you a bit of joy on this Sunday morning as they do for me.

They always make me feel giddy and wonderful.

Smiles everyone.

Happy Sunday ……

Special Hello to: every living creature on our planet …. Happy Sunday

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 5th day of March, 2015.

Happy Birthday to my Aunt “L.”

Wishing you a great day Aunt.

She lives on Vancouver Island where the spring flowers are already blooming.

Ah, how lucky is she.

 

Well on Sunday our clocks go ahead one hour so that is a sure fired sign of spring.

The weather over the next week looks like single digit plus degrees so that is good.

I have not seen any rabbits so not sure if they are beginning to change colour or not.

How cool is Mother Nature?

I always think it is amazing that some animals actual change the colour of their fur between the seasons.

Soon the leaves will begin to bud on the trees.

I love the smell of spring.

 

Working at the store tonight.

I wonder who I shall meet this evening.

There are always interesting people that come into the store.

They come from all over the world.

 

Well I hope that you are having a great week.

Enjoying the day wherever you may be.

I am going to have an awesome day.

 

Special Hello to: everyone celebrating a birthday and life today.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
