Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 2nd day of October, 2017.

Well we are in October.

Rained and very windy overnight continuing this morning.

The only difference …… SNOW ……. sticking to the decks, roofs and vehicles.

Debating as to what coat to wear as am umbrella is not going to work this morning and I would like to stay relatively dry on my walk to and from the bus.

I had a great COFFEE visit with my girl friends which included a Birthday party for one of the girl’s Moms.

Followed by a visit from my girl.

It was a great day all round and we even were able to get a walk in before the rain came down.

Perfect SUNDAY.

 

Now back to work.

It was a most productive weekend.

YAY, me and Alvin.

 

Cannot believe this coming up weekend is Thanksgiving already …..

Also I decorated for Halloween in the house but did not get the things up outside due to the wind.

Will try later this week.

 

Time to go and find a proper jacket (basement closet) for this weather.

Not really winter but need something more RAIN/SNOW proof.

Have an awesome Monday.

 

Special Hello to: everyone …… keep safe.

Thought for the day…….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of March, 2017.

The sun was shining in through my kitchen windows this morning.

I still have the decorations from my daughter’s birthday party hanging in the window and they are BUTTERFLIES.

They are so pretty I decided to leave them up for awhile.

They were used originally for a store display.

Lucky me.

So pretty …… they are well made and will last for years.

 

We were up early as usual and then before heading back to the sofa I turned on the dryer to fluff up the load that I had left in the dryer from last night and put in the last of the two loads to wash.

Always grabbed all of the clothes that were drying and brought them upstairs to be put away.

I put away the dishes that were air drying in the sink.

Pulled out my baking dishes as I plan to bake banana muffins this afternoon after my morning coffee party.

 

Then we hit the sofa.

I must say that one of my most favourite moments in time is when Alvin and I snuggle on the sofa in the morning before getting up to stay.

We have this pillow from IKEA that is rectangular on the sofa.

I lay it flat and place my head at one end and then Alvin shuffles around before laying his head next to mine.

Placing our favourite red blanket over top of us and with my arm over his body we nap for a little longer.

It is truly one of my favourite moments in time.

What a wonderful way to begin the day.

 

Usually after I get up he moves over to my spot and I cover him up.

He lays there while I write in my gratitude journal and once I have breakfast including the always “banana” – he will leave the sofa and come to the table.

We always eat breakfast at the table …… he has his food much earlier but we always share a banana.

His fav.

 

Last night it was raining …. yes, raining in March and windy.

This morning we woke up to snow.

Actually I knew it had snowed because I looked out the window at 2:30 a.m. (bathroom break).

 

While writing in my journal this morning – Alvin got up to go outside.

I decided that I would grab my coat and boots and shovel off the deck …..

 

So time to hit the shower as I have a coffee date with my girls this morning.

Not my turn to host.

I will be walking most carefully this morning.

Feels quite warm out so it should melt today.

Sky is clear so that is a good sign.

Gotta run.

Also want to make coffee for my neighbour before I leave for coffee.

 

Have an awesome day.

Special Hello to: my sister …. SKYPE at 6:30 p.m. ????  If different time call me, please.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

P.S.  Mr. Alvin looks so good in his new hair cut and feels so soft after the bath.  The longer is hair the more course it is ….

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 10th day of April, 2014.

WOW, it is my day off …. got to sleep in and snuggle longer with “me Alvin.”

Always a treat.

In less than one hour two of my girlfriends are coming for “coffee” and a visit, of course.

I am so excited.

I love having company.

We should all take a break from our hectic routines and just kick back and enjoy.

There is nothing like time spent with your girlfriends or guy friends whichever or combination.

Have a beverage and maybe a treat if you are organized.

I would have made chocolate cranberry scones but I ran out of time.

Perhaps the thought will count……

So on this quiet …. slightly overcast morning ….. I hope that life is treating you with the love and respect that you deserve.

I hope that you are giving life the love and respect it deserves.

Make sense?

Just always remember you receive what you give.

It always boils down to that.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: my siblings ….. love you all ….. the ones on earth and the one who left us way too early ….. miss you little brother.

Always, Carol and Alvin
