Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Well here we are at Monday morning.

The sky is filled with dark blue rain clouds.

Sounds like they have forecasted rain for this day.

Tomorrow my friend is taking me to the Devonian Garden to check out the new Aga Khan Garden at the Devonian Gardens just a few minutes away from my home,

and just outside the City of Edmonton.

Alvin is curled up on his blue blanket beside my chair.

I would love to be curled up beside him as it is cool in the house this morning.

It was difficult to remove myself from under the blanket that I was covered with on the sofa.

But it is time to get up and at it.

Vacation day or not.

There are things to do.

Vacation has to be a good mix of work and play.

My sister comes in just 5 sleeps so the house has to be ready.

We are getting there.

Today is Alvin’s hair cut and bath day.

Tomorrow the Devonian Garden which is a birthday gift from my friend.

There is some cleaning, laundry, shopping to do before Saturday but there is time.

Some planning …..

Hopefully the sun will shine some more as I find it difficult to push myself into action especially with days to go.

I guess procrastination would be the word.

Making a list always helps, I find.

I am looking up at my beautiful bulletin boards.

Thinking of what should be displayed on them.

There are still finishing touches waiting.

This is where I shall end this post.

Things to do …. list to make.

 

Living each day with kindness and respect for myself and for others.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 30th day of May, 2015.

It was sunny earlier this morning but now as they have forecasted the skies are beginning to fill with dark blue clouds.

I have a couple of chores in the yard to do but if it rains before I get out there then they will wait for another day.

There is always enough work to do when you own a house.

And so it goes.

I hope that you are doing great on this fine Saturday morning.

I am so grateful that I am able to now have the evenings and weekends at home.

So nice to actually have the time to do things.

There is a long list.

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed with the TO DO LIST?

I hear you …..

Sometimes it is better to have a MASTER List, and then each weekend or evening, take a couple of items from the list and do it that way.

It seems to me that I keep adding things to the list and not taking any away.

So having a few things to accomplish each day makes it more manageable and much less stressful.

We all have to remember to take time for our ourselves, our families, and friends.

Well as I sip on my delicious cup of coffee I am thinking it is time to get this show on the road.

I always have to run out to do a couple of errands.

It sure feels cold today compared to the beginning of the week.

Ah, spring.

So happy second last day of May …..

Have a blast.

Take time for you.

Do one thing at a time.

Don’t fret ….

Sing out loud ……

Dance like you know you want to …..

Happy Saturday everyone.

Special Hello to: FAMILY, FRIENDS and STRANGERS.

Always, Carol and Alvin
