Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning.

Today is Monday, August 17, 2020.

First day back to work after two weeks of vacation.

Alvin is wondering what the heck is going on.

Once I have finished this post – it will be out for our walk as we are going to have another day in the 30’s.

Too hot at lunch and at 4 p.m. to be out walking with a fur coat on.

 

We had a great weekend ending with the birthday party at my friend’s home for her Mother.

There were great snacks including fruit.

My friend made her Mom’s birthday cake and it was delicious.

Also yesterday was my friend from Regina’s 60th Birthday and I was lucky enough to have a chat with her on the phone on her big day.

Seems like so long ago that I turned 60 but alas it is not as I was 63 this year.

 

Also this past weekend I was the HOST for a Fifth Avenue Jewelry party.

This time not in person but on-line.

My friend who is a Jeweler with Fifth Avenue Jewelry out of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan did four live “shows.”

We had a good turn out to view the jewelry.

I like doing the shows “live” on Facebook ….. had an opportunity to view 30+ pieces of jewelry each segment.

So it was great.

 

Well Alvin and I had a great vacation.

Hard to believe it is over for another summer.

Missing from our August 2020 vacation this year was a visit from my sister and our annual siblings trip to see our brother AND girls road trip with my daughter.

I did miss seeing my sister and brothers and also taking a short trip with my daughter.

Hopefully next summer we will be able to travel more easily.

If everyone wears a mask in public, cleans their hands often and does the social distancing – perhaps this will be possible next summer.

 

Well it is almost 7:00 a.m. and time for us to head out for a walk before starting work.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

May you be shown kindness and respect by all others, and in turn show kindness and respect to all others.

What goes around – comes around.

Keep safe and cool.

Enjoy the summer days remaining.

I am excited for FALL.

My favorite season.

 

Living my life with kindness and respect.

Learning new things everyday.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day….

Welcome to Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012.

I was away from my blog and work yesterday as I was not feeling well.

Feeling quite a bit better today.

I am always amazed at how you can be feeling great one minute and not so much the next.

I am grateful this morning that I awoke to dry ground (had forecasted some of the white stuff for overnight).

I am grateful to be feeling better this morning.

I am grateful that I had Alvin to snuggle next to yesterday when I wasn’t feeling well.

I am grateful to have a beautiful home and to live in such an incredible city and neighbourhood.

I am grateful to be Canadian.

I am grateful that I have this forum to write my words and thoughts on a daily basis.

I am grateful to have notebooks and pens to write with each morning.

I am grateful to always have more than enough money.

I am grateful for all my family and friends.

I am grateful that these thoughts of gratitude are not in any particular order.

I am grateful for my favourite season.

I am grateful to have the best daughter on the planet.

I am grateful to have the best son-in-law on the planet.

I am grateful to have grand-puppies.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I am so grateful to all of you for reading my blog and being my inspiration for continuing to write.

Thank you.

I hope that you all have a crazy wonderful day.

Special Hello to: ¬†anyone who is not feeling well ……. we send you good healing energy ….. to feel better.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
