Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 9th day of November, 2015.

Wow another weekend come and gone.

It was raining yesterday and the streets are gleaming.

It hovered at the freezing mark so hopefully the sidewalks are okay for walking.

I had a most splendid weekend as did Mr. Alvin.

We enjoyed all of our company ….. some stayed ¬†for a few minutes others for longer.

A great time was had by all.

I would say that we are well prepared for the upcoming craft sale, YAY.

Lots to do before then but that is okay.

Alvin continues to carry that chew treat around the house “burying” it from time to time.

Sometimes he leaves it outside (sometimes laying on the deck and others he actually buries it in the dirt).

Although now that the ground has froze it makes it more difficult to do so.

I have some news …. remember I was mentioning about the GALA that we went to on Saturday afternoon.

Well they had some baskets full of makeup type goodies that they draw for …. I WON ONE.

How exciting.

There was perfume (2), mascara, couple of different eye shadows and lip stuff, a tote bag and nail art.

I am so blessed to have had a fun weekend.

Not much house type work done but that is okay.

I hope that you all have an awesome Monday.

I am still deciding whether to wear winter boots or shoes.

ARGH …..

This in between and if I only knew the actual state of the sidewalks and streets.

Special Hello: my sister and great niece, thank you for Skyping last night …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 25th day of August, 2015.

Today was my Mom’s Birthday …… Happy Birthday Mom.

We miss you.

The sky is overcast this morning much the way it was yesterday morning.

The sun will come out.

Supposed to be 25.

What gorgeous weather.

Too bad we could not regulate our inside temperatures at work …. I froze yesterday.

Funny, because I am usually warm.

Oh well ….. what can you do.

Put on another layer.

I opted for long pants today instead of capris or a skirt.

I love my walk to the bus stop ….. it is quiet and I can just take in the view.

The roses are blooming again and the fragrance just makes my day.

There is nothing quite like the smell of roses in the morning….

Well here we go again ….. running a bit behind only because I could not get my “behind” out of bed earlier.

Should give me more incentive to get to bed earlier….. but there were things to do …..

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Remember to stop and “smell the roses” …….

I think that today is going to be your best one yet.

Special Hello to: my friend “V” who is so thoughtful and kind.

Always, Carol and Alvin
