Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 14th day of June, 2015.

Looking out of the office window facing south I can see the trees blowing in the wind in bright sunlight.

Looking out of my bedroom window facing north I can see the clouds starting to roll in.

So should be enough time to write this blog, drink my first mug of coffee and get dressed so that Mr. Alvin and I can go for a nice walk.

Yesterday it rained after our morning appointment at the Vet …. for Alvin’s pedicure …. only thing was …. his nails were not long enough so no pedicure……first time going to the Vet and no charge ….. so we bought some toothpaste.  They are so nice.  It was the perfect day to remain indoors and tackle my extra long “TO DO LIST.”

I was so pleased with myself as I managed to to everything on the list.

How is that for a productive Saturday.

Today is baking, bath for Alvin and relaxation for us.

YAY ……

This morning I realized for the first time something about Alvin …… he got me up at 4:30 to have his breakfast and to go outside… then we hit the sofa for some more zzzz’s ….. he got me up at 7:30 to go out again ….. then just after 8:00 he sat there and starred at me….. then he settle back down …… then finally at 9:00 he got up barked and jumped off of the sofa …. I got up and then he jumped up into my spot.  Mr. Alvin’s way of getting me up and out off the sofa.  I had just figured that I had deserved to just relax and lay there but guess he figured otherwise.  Thank you Mr. Alvin for being such a good friend and alarm clock.

I hope that you had a great weekend thus far.

The coffee is tasting pretty good and Alvin is pacing looking for the perfect spot to “leave” his CHEWIE ….. he sure can take up a lot of time going from room to room “burying it or hiding it” …. sometimes in plain sight.

Have an awesome Sunday as we have to get the show on the road.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Everyday I learn something new ….. even about Mr. Alvin.

Special Hello to: all the puppies out there who teach their Mommas and Poppas everyday.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Monday Morning and welcome to May 28th, 2012 ….. just after 6:00 a.m.

Wow, it has been over one week since my last blog.

I was on vacation last week and although I definitely had the time to write, I decided to take a break.

I had a great week with my Alvin and grand-puppies, Elton and Penny.

There are lots of cute stories to relate to you over the next few blogs.

My kids had a great vacation in San Diego.  They took in the Zoo, Sea World and some beaches to name a few places they visited.

Back in Edmonton, it rained for a few days making me feel lazy.  So I definitely got some relaxing in which was great.

Cuddles with the puppies and when it was dry out we went for walks.

My “to do” list remains almost as long as it was prior to my vacation but then again “vacation” is for having fun and relaxing and that is pretty much what happened.

I did pick up some flowers and got them planted in pots, I did mow the grass, I did dust and sweep the floors …… I did the basics.

Well the sun is coming up …. I love sunrises…. and the promise of a beautiful warm sunny day.

This morning I have to be at work extra early so will sign off soon.

I hope that you all had a wonderful week and had some time to relax and have fun.

I watched more television than I have in a long time and it was good to sit back and drink coffee.

So from me and Alvin ….. have a wonderful Monday.

Special Hello to:  YOU, and YOU and YOU, too…….

Always, Carol and Alvin
