Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 23rd day of February, 2019.

That darn Weather Report says colder weather on the way.

Hopefully when Alvin and I walk to his follow-up Vet appt. in a little bit (930); it is not too cold.

We did not make arrangements for a ride.

Thankfully it is only about an 8 minute walk.

Also wishing a Happy Birthday to our friend “A” who lives a few doors down.

It is her Happy Birthday today as well.

Also a girl I know back home.  Happy Birthday “M.”

Lots of birthdays on this day.

So, today is the DAY.

Today is my beloved sister’s “60” Birthday.

I cannot believe she is 60 ….. where has the time gone.

Seems like yesterday we were teenagers and young adults.

I will say this …. we always had fun … no matter where we were or what we were doing.

We have laughed and cried together.

We have worked together (for same company).

We have lived together for a bit of time.

Always there for each other.

Yes, we have had our “spats” but at the end of it all, we always made it out of the mud and on our way.

She has been my longest friend.

No one can make me laugh like my sister.

I love her sense of humour, her smile and her laugh.

She is one of the most intelligent beings I know.

My sister is dependable, loyal and herself.

Wishing my baby sister the most wonderful 60th Birthday.

Yes, I know I am giving away your age but sister, 60 is huge.

It is just a number.

But a glorious one.

Happy Birthday Sister C.

The pups wanted to get in on the WISHES.

Happy Birthday from Miss Aspen, Master Milo and Mr. Alvin.

Purple flowers – Lavender for a February birthday.

How about an ANGEL FOOD CAKE with Fresh Strawberries …. next visit …. will make you one!

Wishing you a Happy Happy Birthday.

Wishing you a great day and year to follow.

May you have good health, be filled with great joy, love, and abundance.

AND always, surrounded by the ones that love you.

With love from your family

Me, Alvin, A & S, Aspen and Milo.

Have an awesome day.

 

Special Hello to: the Birthday Girl, of course.

Always, Carol

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 28th day of August, 2016.

It is overcast for the most part this morning but it is clearing some to the south and I assume to the east as I can see brightness coming from that part of the sky.

Sunshine or not??

Oh yes there is some sunshine as it is shining on one of the houses to south of my window.

YAY ….. sometimes it is the little things that bring such joy.

I really would like the sun to shine.

It seems like we have had many days of clouds and rain.

 

Yesterday was a busy day preparing the house for the tea party today at noon.

So in just a few hours.

Some of the girls that I used to work with at the store are coming for the Steeped Tea party.

It will be so nice to see them.

Last night Alvin and I were invited out for supper.

My friend “J” made this incredible spread ….. way too much yummy food.

We had a great visit, me, “J” and “A” ……

Alvin enjoyed playing with Jasmine’s plush toys.

He only has non-plush ones because given the opportunity he just chews on them until the threads break and the stuffing comes out.

Even the hard core ones that are supposed to be “chew proof” … not so much.

That boy of mine.

So instead he has a ball, his snowball and we play fetch with that……

He has some other toys but not a soft one in the bunch.

Maybe as he gets older he will not attack them so much and I can get him some softer toys.

 

One of the girls is bringing her youngest girl so that will be nice.

Alvin loves children.

Well I supposed I should get this show on the road.

Get spruced up and prepare the table for the tea party.

I am going to make a couple of goodies for the tea party even though my hostess is bringing some baked good.

There will be Steeped Tea’s “Coconut Key Lime Dip Mix” with fresh strawberries AND “GuacamolTEA” with Artisan Roasted Garlic & Black Bean Tortilla chips.

We will have fun and Alvin will enjoy the company.

He loves to be surrounded by women, go figure.

Well he is a guy after all?

Laughing aloud.

 

Time to go, I hope that you all have an awesome Sunday.

Remember to go for a walk and enjoy the great outdoors.

I hope that you are as blessed as me to have some parks close to your home.

 

Special Hello to: my friends here and there and everywhere.

Always, Carol and Alvin
