Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday July 2, 2016.

Another bright and sunny morning although there are some clouds to the south.

I think they are forecasting occasional showers for today.

Me and Alvin had a wonderful Canada Day.

We both were startled by a loud crash when someone in the neighbourhood fired big fireworks.

I had closed the window earlier because there were smaller ones going off.

Thank goodness it started to rain and put an end to the fireworks.

I doubt very much that they had permission to set them off.

Thank you Mother Nature.

 

There is a bit of a cool breeze coming in through my office window as I key these words.

I am also reinforcing some buttons on a couple of new tops that one of my friends gave me so that they don’t come off and get lost.

One is a deep purple and the other is a deeper khaki limey green – both which go with a flowery cardigan that I own.

Lucky me.

I love hand me downs ….. I remember as a little girl when boxes of clothing would arrive from our cousins.

My sister and I used to love trying the clothes.

Our Mom made most of our clothes when we were small but as the boys started to come along she just did not have the time.

She also spent a lot of time out doing chores and working on the land.

I definitely did not have the time to sew on top of looking after the small ones, cooking, cleaning and other chores.

Thank goodness my sister was only 18 months younger and was a huge help with most things.

I remember we would have the odd battle but I do believe it was out of frustration as we had huge responsibilities as young ones.

We did love to go to school and even though we missed more than we went our grades were not reflective of that as we felt as though it was a holiday, it was fun.

Well enough down memory lane.

Time to get these buttons tightened and get downstairs and have my breakfast and then COFFEE.

Mr. Alvin had his breakfast earlier at 5:00 a.m.

 

We want to wish you a great day.

Special Hello to: all those children who grew up before their time …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 1st day of October, 2015.

We are now well into the throes of fall …. or autumn as I sometimes like to call it.

The leaves are a multitude of amazing hues of yellows, oranges and reds.

They warm my heart.

In between all of the colours of fall peer some of the flowers that have managed to stay in perfect form despite some of the cool night temperatures.

My front flower bed is still growing strong.

Last night on our walk we had three visits with friends along our walk.

It was fantastic….. we talked of my friend’s flowers and then my upcoming open house for Steeped Tea.

At another friend’s we discussed “hand me downs” …… growing up with them…..we girls loved them, her husband did not.

Laughed at silly Alvin with a Dad and his three little ones.  My how he loves the kids.

It was one of the best nights ever.

The weather was perfect …. company was awesome ….. feeling so great.

Well here we go again almost time to leave for work.

My how that time always creeps up on me …..

Oh well …..

Time does go by one second at a time ….

I hope that you are out and about enjoying all of the sights and smells of fall.

Stop and crunch the leaves that have fallen onto the ground.

That is one of my most favourite things to do.

I also like to throw them up into the air ….. I always do this after I have raked them from the front lawn.

So much fun.

Be three again ….. why not!

Happy Thursday to you all.

Enjoy…

Special Hello to: my sister …. by the way ….. they have one gorgeous house …. I finally figure it out …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
