Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 24th day of June, 2016.

The sun is shining and there appears to be a breeze as I gaze out my upstairs window.

Last day of work for this week.

The house is quiet with only the sound of my fingers tapping on the keyboard.

Alvin went home with his sister, brother-in-law and Elton last night.

It was easier as I am hosting a garage sale tomorrow and the day he gets too excited with all of the people coming and going.

I cannot leave him in the house and being outside in the garage with me for that length of time is not good for him either.

So he is on a two night three day sleepover.

My coffee buddies were getting together last night after the kids were in bed to make a craft for each of their children’s teachers.

They invited me for coffee.

Of course, I joined in ……

We ate grapes, blueberries, raspberries and watermelon.

I drank coffee …..some enjoyed another beverage.

We had a blast.

We took these flower pots, put a bed of green foam in the bottom of each, glued in a grassy moss stuff, made a cute flower, added leaves, placed a gift card and button on each flower and also a key chain with an inspirational saying from the child to the teacher.  They were so cute.  Wrapped in cello – coloured on the bottom and clear over that …. wrapped with a small tag and cord.

They look so good.

So this was out of the blue so worked well as I do not like to leave Mr. Alvin alone ….

I managed to get the back lawn mowed, prepared something for the mail, empty the dishwasher, make supper and do the dishes, get my lunch and clothes ready for today and walk the pups all before Elton’s Mom and Dad arrived after work.

Then had time for supper and a couple of extra things before heading out.

I figured it would be nice to go out forgetting the getting up part as I did not get to bed until almost 11:00 p.m. – strange being so light out.

Well I have to run as I did things in revers this morning … up shower and get dressed and then do my blog and now go write in my gratitude journal and eat breakfast.

Have an awesome Friday everyone.

Special Hello to: the girls “S” and “G” ….. thanks “S” for being such a great hostess and to the girls for asking me to join them.  It was so much fun.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 9th day of July, 2014.

I hope this morning greets you with great joy and happiness.

May you feel full of love and compassion.

May you always be surrounded by laughter and kindness.

May you always show love, compassion and kindness to all you meet.

Let us practice simple kindness today.

Make this “KIND WEDNESDAY” ……

The beginning of something extra special.

I wish kindness would take over the world.

The sun is shining here in Edmonton and there is a nice cool breeze.

Another hot day is in our forecast.

Alvin and I waited until late last night to go for a walk.

It was after 9:00 (late for those of us who go to bed usually just about that time).

Anyway there was a bit of a breeze so made our walk comfortable.

My friend “P” was in her yard watering flowers when we came around her side of the lake.

We stopped to visit.

She has a gorgeous yard …… every year it grows more beautiful.

Well comes the time to prepare for the puppies arrival.

Too hot for them to be without air conditioning.

So my grand-puppies are on their way over to spend the day with Alvin.

Good company.

Soon they shall be here everyday.

That will be extra lovely.

Have a kind Wednesday everyone.

Peace to you all.

Special Hello to: all those folks who practice kindness on a regular basis.  Thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
