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.

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 29th day of October, 2014.

Wow another glorious fall / autumn day.

Only two more sleeps until Halloween.

Still haven’t decided what to wear ….. I will dress up for the office and then change before heading to the store.

Always fun …..  any ideas???

Last night I had an update on my nephew, and he seems to be making some progress although still not out of coma.

My daughter and I are going up to the hospital this evening after work.

When I write on my blog in the mornings it is with careful eyes watching me, “ALVIN’S, of course.”

He always makes certain that he can see me …. when I am at home seldom am I out of his sight.

Even as human beings we like to have our space from our loved ones.

It appears not to be the case with this puppy “dog.”

He is definitely a “Momma’s Boy” and at home he goes from room to room with me.

There is a bond between me and Alvin that is strong as iron ….. I do not remember nor do I wish to remember what life was like before he entered my life.

I am so grateful for being in great health, for having employment, to have my bills paid every month, to have lots of food in the house, to be surrounded by loving family and friends, for telephones ( the ones that are portable but do not fit into your pocket), for time and energy.

So on this day I wish you grace and purpose, joy,abundance and love.

Keep dreaming and bring your dreams one step closer to fruition.

Special Hello to: family and friends

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 29th day of October, 2013.

Well third last day of October and two days closer to Halloween.

Have you figured out your costume for the big day?

I spend most of the evening going through my rag tag items trying to put together a suitable costume.

I have a few ideas.

Definitely do not want to copy something from last year or the year before …. always good to have something new.

I do enjoy dressing up and even more importantly I enjoy greeting the treaters at my door.

When I lived in the apartment we did not have many kids that would come with the exception of family and close friends.

So this is all new and fun.

This year I am going to put up the “Alvin gate” so that he can stay in the kitchen instead of on his leash with me at the door.

Way too hard to hold him and hand out candy.

He gets so excited.

Only two more sleeps until the big day.

Special Hello to: my fellow lovers of 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
