Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 23rd day of July, 2016.

What a whirlwind of activities over the past few days.

Company arriving …. company leaving…… sad for that.

Pancake breakfast at work …… rest of the day off …… errands ran.

Attended Open House for one of my colleagues and neighbours for Steeped Tea ….. mowed grass afterward ….. too  hot to walk.

Garage sale today ….. Tea Tasting tomorrow.

The past few days seem like a blur and then it will be Sunday evening and I will be preparing once again for the work week.

Do you have times like these?

So much to enjoy and the time just zips by.

I so, we so enjoyed the visit of our friend from back home.

We had such a great time.

We found out that we have much more in common that we even knew.

Funny how that works.

I am grateful for that time as is Alvin.

He really took a shine to her.

It is true that he really likes the girls but he has some relationships that are different and it is apparent.

Not the same as mine or his sisters.

I love it.

Life is full of things that are crystal clear and full of things that are mysterious and unknown.

Well just in the last minutes here before my neighbour and her daughter arrive for the garage sale.

She just called and they will be here in the next bit as they were up a bit on the late side.

Went for a late walk and such.

Anyhoo …. time to get this show / ship on the road / on the sea and go.

I think I will take Alvin with me to put up the sign and then he will have a walk.

Things will be fine …..

As there will be two adults …. if something has to be done last minute one of us can always be in the garage to await potential customers.

Wish us luck …. we just would love to sell everything …… then we are done and things.

Good things as usual.   No junk.

 

Have an awesome Saturday.

Back tomorrow.

Special Hello to: my sister, yes I am very lucky for sure.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 8th day of August, 2014.

Happy Birthday to my niece-in-law “S” …. wishing you a great Birthday.

It is overcast and cool here in Edmonton on the day before my 57th Birthday.

I had the most wonderful time last night with my friends “K” and “K” from Bath & Body Works.

One of the K’s and I went shopping first ….. my first time in a long while.

I was so fortunate to purchase a beautiful scarf and then found a nice summer dress and they match.

We met the other K at the restaurant FAMOSO ( definitely spelled it incorrectly yesterday ).

OMG, so great … we had pizza and it was amazing.

The service was great ….. staff wonderful.

Even took a photo of us for my memory book ( in case my on-site one fails ).

Then we went and saw the movie “LUCY” and it was great.

My friend “G” had given me a gift card to the theatre with instructions to pay for everyone …… the girls were tickled pink.

How wonderful are the friends that I have ……. they are amazing and thoughtful.

Well we have an additional puppy here ….. looking after Mr. Casey …. a cute little guy.

Elton was just growling – not sure why but has stopped.

So lucky that the four of them get along ……

So on the day before my actual 57th Birthday …. I will say that I am so blessed to be surrounded by the best people on the planet.

I have amazing family and great friends.

The puppies are not so bad either.

Love “me Alvin” …… of course.

I am on cloud 9 ……. better yet cloud 7-7-7- ……..

Well time to go and grab some toast and then take the puppies for a walk.

Oh, this afternoon I was invited to my friend “G’s” house for coffee and another friend “S” will hopefully be there, too.

YAY.

I hope that you are surrounded by amazing people.

Have a wonderful Friday.

Also found out that my dear friend, her daughter (my niece) and grand-daughter (my great niece) are coming to Edmonton on the long weekend.

Special Hello to: Miss Hoda Kotb, Happy 50th Birthday; we share the same birthdate.  How cool is that!

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
