Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to the 22nd day of December, 2017.

The sky is light and the sun is up as it is late.

I used a day of vacation so that I could be at home with Alvin and to give him a hair trim and bath.

There are several things that I need to get done before Christmas so this gives me the opportunity to do so.

Well I was pooped so I did sleep in after our original start time of 4:00 a.m. which was a nice treat.

So just sipping on a up of coffee in my PJ’s at after 10:00 a.m. and it feels great.

Sometimes you just have to do it.

Lots to do but I will get them done.

Nice to be home and chilling with my boy.

Listening to the Christmas shows on the television.

Our temperatures are beginning to drop as some ARTIC AIR blasts through.

Winter in Western Canada.

There was ever so light of a dusting of snow last night.

Fluffy and white.

Mostly ground showing.

 

So time to go and drink my mug of coffee before it gets cold.

I am so excited for Christmas with my family.

Tomorrow morning coffee date with two of my girl friends.

YAY …….

What a great day to hold Christmas on Monday.

Monday will not be blah or dreaded this year.

Enjoy your time with your loved ones.

 

Happy Friday …..

 

Special Hello to:  my friend “I” who lives in Sweden…..

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 16th day of January, 2016.

BRR, it is mighty cold outside.

Supposed to be minus 25 celsius today and that does not include the windchill.

I was going to give Alvin a trim and then he would have to have a bath but am thinking it might have to wait until next weekend.

Will have to check his nails as paws must be trimmed before the pedicure.

My boy has to be in tip top shape.

 

I just noticed Mr. Alvin was laying outside the office with something between his paws ….. ah, shucks he had one of my socks.

Jumped up and grabbed the sock before it has a hole chewed in it ….. he pulled it out of the laundry basket.

What a guy.

So I blocked the basket with another until I finish this and we go downstairs to start the day.

This morning I found it difficult to get my butt out of bed.

Could be because I have the minus twenty something in my head and just wanted to stay tucked up warm as a bug in a rug.

We were up twice earlier for Mr. Alvin ….. breakfast and then couple of hours later he had to go outside again.

Anyway we are now up ….. bed has been made …… clothes gathered up for laundry …… washed and groomed (eyebrows on), dressed and it is almost 9:30 a.m.

Mid morning …. late morning I guess.

Oh well …… most of my things today were not time sensitive ….. the laundry does not care what time it gets done ….. the bathrooms do not care what time they get cleaned.

So it is okay ….. I always feel bad when I get up late …..

Okay I am finished moaning and groaning.

It is a lovely day …… just doing some things around the house ….. perhaps run to the store ….my neighbour said I could borrow her car.

It would be a cold walk and the bananas would be frozen by the time I got home.

 

Well I hope that you have a great Saturday …. don’t hit yourself over the head if you decide to stay in bed a bit longer …. it is Saturday.

If it is your day off …. the laundry can be started at noon and the toilet can be cleaned in the afternoon ….. right.

 

Special Hello to: my friends and family all around the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin
