Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 21st day of August, 2017.

Well today is the last day of vacation for this girl.

Man, I have loved every last minute of it.

Alvin and I are just getting ready to take a little walk to his Vet and pick up some food for the guy.

Cannot run out of food for sure.

The ECLIPSE will happen in just a bit over one hour so need to get busy here.

Do not wish to be outside when it happens.

I wish that I had the glasses to wear to observe it but alas I do not.

So will watch it on television.

 

So on this Monday ….. I am so grateful that during my vacation I was able to spend time with my sister, both of my brothers, my eldest nephew and his family, so many of my friends, old neighbours that came back to

visit me and Alvin, and my “niece” and her family from Saskatchewan and MY daughter, son-in-law and grand-pups.

Without my daughter and her family all of this would not have been possible.  So grateful for their love and support.

It was great to be able to take in High Tea in the Hotel Selkirk at Fort Edmonton Park with my daughter and sister.

We had so much fun riding on the carousel and the girls on the high swing.

The weather was great.

I was terribly spoiled by attention and gifts for the past two weeks.

So much so,I am overwhelmed with blessings and gratitude.

 

Time to get this show on the road before the “light” goes out.

Have an awesome day and DO NOT look at the ECLIPSE without special eyewear.

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends.

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 20th day of August, 2017.

Happy Birthday to a young man named “D” who turns 10 today.

He was one of our first neighbours when I moved to Edmonton.

They moved back to Quebec in 2011 and I miss them all.

So grateful that they were able to visit me and Alvin this summer.

Happy Birthday Buddy …..

 

The sky is overcast this morning and I believe there is a chance of rain today.

Getting close to going back to work.

I have had the best vacation.

Lots of company, went places and had lots of time to relax.

Perfection.

 

Yesterday I had the last birthday celebration with two of my friends.

We had yummy food and cake and they spoiled me with many gifts.

I am so blessed.

We laughed and had a great visit.

 

Ah, tomorrow is the eclipse and then Tuesday is back to work.

 

Sometimes it is easy to slip into negativity but we must remember to focus on the many blessings in our lives.

 

Special Hello to: my sister …… we had a great time together.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 25th day of October, 2015.

We had the first hard frost last night and it certainly cleared the sky which is a brilliant blue this morning.

The sun is shining so bright.

I just downloaded some photos and I thought I would share them with you.

Our life in photos from late summer and now in fall.

In no apparent order ….. sometimes life is all in the photos.

I hope that you enjoy seeing our life in photos.

We have had an awesome past couple of months.

Flowers blooming, my dear friend from Regina visited, then my cousin from Saskatoon dropped by, Elton and Penny came for some visits, Autumn happened and our yard changed, oh and Steven my son-in-law had a birthday, decorated for Halloween, had a few Steeped Tea parties and life.  Have an awesome Sunday.

Flowers still blooming late in the season
