Living … One day at a time.

Hello, what a great morning.

Woke to another “dry ground” morning.

Always a great way to start the day at this time of year.

We had an interesting, entertaining staff meeting yesterday.

 

Last night Alvin and I enjoyed our walk.

So nice to still have green grass and some trees remain with various coloured leaves.

My tree is almost bare.

Most of the leaves are on the ground or blown away.

 

Last night we received another big parcel from our friend in Regina.

OMG, there were so many wonderful items.

Alvin loved his package and as always was quite entertaining as he opened his present.

He always gets so excited.

For some reason I am experiencing technical difficulties downloading/uploading the photos of our treats from my phone to the computer.

Alvin had a lovely bag of SNAUSAGES.

Which he loves.

There was an apple pie complete with my initials.

Homemade cheese buns (which I absolutely adore) and regular buns.

Cookies with filling.

A carrot and beet loaf.

A M&M milk chocolate bar, some different mixes and seasoning packets from Epicure, Cereal bars filled with fruit, Carrot jam, Almond biscuits.

Yup, carrot jam and it is divine.

 

I am likely missing something but OMG, so spoiled.

We are so spoiled.

Thank you to our friend for always making us feel on top of the world, so special.

 

Well almost time to head off downstairs.

Carpool off until next Wednesday.

One of my coworkers is giving me a ride today and my neighbour tomorrow.

Just have to take the bus home.

Not so bad.

 

I hope that you all have a great Thursday.

A reminder to myself to walk with joy in my heart,

Kindness permeating my every cell,

and treating myself and all other beings with respect.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Hello Wednesday.  Here we are on Day 28th of September, 2011.

Can you believe it?

The leaves on the trees have all turned to beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow.

The grass is not quite as green as it was earlier in the season.

Everyone is beginning to think about and in some cases prepare for the next season.

Autumn is my favourite season and I wish that it would last longer.

I am grateful for this time of year.

I wish that the leaves would hang onto the tree branches for a few weeks longer.

But I understand that the trees are making way for the “winter”.

Yes, I said that word.  LOL.

These are my thoughts at 6:15 a.m. on this Wednesday.

Leaves ….. colours…….love……….ah, I could just close my eyes and ………

Have a great day.

 

Always, Carol

 

P.S.  on this Wednesday …… have patience …. on your drive to work, while waiting in a line-up or doing whatever it is that you are doing this day.  Waiting is a good time to relax and meditate and be grateful for all the wonderful things in your life.  Believe you me, there is always so much to be thankful for ….. the air that we breathe, the transportation that takes us where we need to go, a roof over our heads, food on the table, clean water to drink, electricity, heat ……
