Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 21st day of March, 2016.

The second day of spring 2016.

Alvin does not know it yet but in less than one half hour he will be having company to spend the day with him.

My daughter and son-in-law are bringing Mr. Elton over to spend the day with Alvin so they each have company.

He will be so excited.

I am excited as well.

Alvin continues to heal and honestly you would never know that they had “dental surgery” other than he is missing his cute little front teeth.

I do miss those little ones …..

Yesterday was a nice day …. Alvin and I circled our lake walking on the grass side all way round the water …. it was wonderful.

We even came across two full grown geese which did not intrigue Alvin for some reason.

My neighbours each separately had coffee with me …. one in the morning and the other in the afternoon.

It was a nice treat to catch up and Alvin always loves their visits.

Back to work ….. oh how quickly the weekends fly by.

 

Do you ever have moments when you cannot think of what to have for lunches?

Oh, I surely do.

Today it is cheese, crackers, raw veggies and an orange.

I really have to stay away from the peanut butter sandwiches as I have had them pretty much every day of my life.

I do like them but bread does not work good for me.

I eat my leftovers for supper so do not want to eat them for lunch.

Any ideas?

I did boil some eggs a week or so ago and they were nice to have for lunch.

I need some lunch ideas???

 

Well almost time for our company to arrive so we best go and finish getting ready.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

From my house to yours …..

 

Special Hello to:  my cousin “J”  ….. yes, Alvin is doing so well and I am very grateful AND to my sister …. can we SKYPE on the EASTER weekend?

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to the 20th day of March, 2016.

Happy Spring Everyone !!

Today is the first day of spring ….. it is now official.

My spring bulbs will start to grow over this next while.

I look forward to seeing the flowers as I do not remember what I planted.

They were a gift from a friend.

The forecast for today is sunny and about 7 degrees celsius which is a lovely day.

The weekend thus far has been beautiful.

Frost lightly covers the windshields of cars and rooftops.

Looks so pretty with the early morning light.

Most of the snow from our front lawn has melted.

We no longer have six inches of ice built up on our front sidewalk.

It is always a challenge over the winter months and spring to keep it clear as it is a low spot and drains from our backyard and from the neighbours.

The storm drain is several feet away.

 

Mr. Alvin continues to heal and recover from his dental surgery/cleaning.

Always happy news …..

 

I guess time to get going ….. I hope that you have an awesome first day of SPRING.

We are definitely going for a long walk in the early afternoon hours.

To celebrate this day.

 

Take care.

We miss and mourn our losses and think of them always in happy times.

 

Special Hello to: family and friends ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 25th day of June, 2014.

WOW, where is June going?

It is a beautiful rainy morning here in Edmonton.

Day two of being at home re-cooping from dental surgery.

It appears to be healing nicely and that is a good thing.

I am following the dental instructions to the letter to ensure no problems.

I think that Alvin wonders what is going on ….. not very often I literally spend two days on the sofa …….

But it does feel good to be resting …….

This rain is much needed for the gardens, grass, crops and flowers.

I am going to spend some time visualizing …. seeing as I have the extra time.

I will say this ….. nothing like dental work to take away your appetite …

Reminds me that I had better find “something soft” to eat ….. I hear oatmeal.

On this rainy Wednesday I hope this finds you well and perhaps doing some of your own visualizing.

Have a Happy Wednesday.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. I have not forgot ….. we must SKYPE this weekend.

Always, Carol and Alvin
