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 Friday the 21st day of November, 2014.

What a surprise I had when I arrived home last night after working both jobs.

There on the middle of the kitchen table sat a parcel ….

As I drew nearer I realized that the said parcel had “my name” on it.

Quickly my eyes searched for the return address as I was not expecting a package.

Lo and behold I saw the name of one of my friends from back in Regina.

I grabbed the scissors from a nearby drawer and set to work to open the carefully done up package.

When I got it open I found a beautiful card and letter and a container with some goodies.

This friend of mine and I am going to name her which as you know I seldom use anyone’s actual name … I usually refer to them by their first initial ….

This absolutely thoughtful and out of the blue gift was from my pal “VAL” …. who is by far one of the most thoughtful humans I know.

This is the second time she has surprised me and surprise it was …..

Anyway the homemade treat of chocolate dipped biscotti is sitting on the table not opened as I wish to have it on a Saturday morning with my coffee and RELAX.

Now there is more than enough for several Saturdays ……

Perhaps over Christmas when I have some extra days at home and not at either job.

Well here it is almost time to leave for work once again ….. almost seems like I just got home ….. whoops yes I did …. it was midnight when I got to bed last night.

I had a great Thursday night at the store.

I hope that you have a crazy wonderful Friday and that perhaps you will take the time to surprise a friend or family member.

Doesn’t have to be anything big ….. something homemade and from the heart will do.

Have a great Friday ….

Tonight will be the third night in a row for working at the store ….. so much fun.

I will be back tomorrow …. thank you for reading my blog ….. this is too cool…..

Special Hello to: my friend VAL from Regina ….. you are absolutely the best and have perfect timing.

Always, Carol and Alvin
