Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 7th day of June, 2015.

WOW, another glorious morning and I feel like shouting it from the rooftop.

YAY …..

I have had a great weekend.

The only thing missing was seeing my daughter and her family.

Yesterday by the time the birthday party started at 10:00 a.m. …..

The flowers front and back were all watered, quickly mowed the back lawn, vacuumed and washed the main floor, dusted and prepared for the party.

The birthday party was a huge success …. the birthday girl enjoyed her gifts and red velvet cupcakes stacked high with my “not to secret” icing and LAUGHTER and CHAT.  We three girls can run the field with every topic under the sun.

It was the perfect party.

After the party …. I mowed and raked the front lawn before it got to hot and finished off the back lawn.  LAUNDRY …. there is always that to do……

By about 3:00,  I decided to call it quits other than finishing the laundry ….. RELAXING TIME.

We curled up on the sofa and just watched a movie.

After supper ….. returned a phone call and then we went for a walk.

I was going to bake cookies to take to Bath & Body Works today but I was pooped …. so bedtime it was.

Well it is just after 9:00 a.m. …… the cookie dough is all made up now and ready for me to scoop it into the oven to bake.

I wanted to take a treat to my friends at the store ….

It has been way too long …. I haven’t been back since my last shift on April 4th.

Somehow the time just has simply got away on me.

I guess after 4 years of working two jobs and for a good portion of it 6-7 days per week …. I had to RELAX and get some things done at home…..

Although it does seem strange that I used to manage to get everything that needed to be done at home and worked two jobs.  Somehow we find the time and strength to do it all.

I will say that I love being home with Mr. Alvin in the evenings and weekends.

Well time to go and get those cookies baked so I can catch the bus to the mall.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: all my friends on the planet …. you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Well here we are at Wednesday – March 21st, 2012.

We are officially in springtime.

I love spring.

The smell, the sounds …..

The whole of it.

I remember when I was a little girl walking in the pasture (field) on the farm, and for as far as I could see it would be a sea of purple ….. crocuses.

They were from what I remember a furry flower, and I guess that helped them from freezing on those cold spring nights.

I truly loved seeing those flowers ….. they marked renewal for me …… a new beginning as I would imagine every spring.

I also remember that the snow would gradually melt and the smell of spring would linger in my senses for weeks.

Water would slowly run from the melting of the snow.

Sometimes on the farm there would be “dirty snow” remaining on the north side of the house until the beginning of July.

Now it seems that spring arrives ….. the temperature rises almost overnight and the snow melts …. almost overnight …

The grass is brown one day and green the next ….. trees bud, blossom and bloom……

Perhaps spring is only in my imagination and boosted a bit by the memory of a small girl.

But it is my memory and I shall treasure it forever.

I hope that you have wonderful memories to draw upon for comfort and entertainment.

Have a happy second day of spring.

Special Hello: to all those wee spring flowers carefully starting to break through the soil and the snow ….

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin ….. ah, my Alvin….. I am so blessed….
