Second Half of the NEW YEAR – final quarter.

Good Morning All, man is it ever difficult to get one’s bottom up and going when it is dark outside. Finally at 8:23 a.m. the sky is beginning to lighten as the sun starts to think about rising in the morning sky. As I look out of the office window there are hues of pinks, almost purple, oranges and yellows filling the horizon and above the night sky is slowing dissipating.

Well HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you all. I put together all the treat bags last night to be delivered to children that I know in our neighbourhood. As I mentioned before I have contacted each one to ensure they are okay with the plan and to make certain no one has allergies. Although I know the chocolate bars do not have nuts in them so that part is good. Chips and Chocolate. Sweet and salty. I am excited to deliver them.

Teddy and Kobie spent the day with us yesterday. We had so much fun. Alvin and Kobie actually shared Alvin’s bed in the kitchen while I worked yesterday off and on during the day. I just had to snap a photo. My daughter will be coming over tomorrow to help me with the Christmas tree so I am going to also ask her to help me with the photo / phone thing. Last time we hooked up some additional memory for the “cloud” but apparently it was not enough as I am still getting messages on my phone which is horrible as I am paying an extra $2.00 and it isn’t enough? Anyway, I am not terribly tech savvy and rely on my daughter to fill in the gaps for me.

I can hardly wait to share photos. It has been forever. Even my HALLOWEEN COSTUME for work. I went as ….. “THIS IS WHAT A HOUSING CLERK LOOKS LIKE DURING THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC.” I just wore my regular work stuff, which consisted of a sweater and tank top and pants. Now the pants were more dressed up than I have been wearing as of late but no one really saw them anyway. We had a virtual HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST which was great. This virtual thing is actually growing on me.

Last night we had some freezing rain so the deck was a bit slippery last night and this morning but luckily we had some snow that came down and froze so it gave some grip when walking. I was very careful out there.

Mr. Alvin surprised me this morning. First off, we were in bed before 9:30 and I read for awhile, he woke up about 3:30 so I gave him his glucosamine chew and we went outside. I wanted to make sure that he did not slip and fall either although he has a much better point of gravity than me. Then back to sleep on the sofa and next thing I know it was 8:08 a.m. Just starting to get light but still dark. Deceiving and felt like earlier. Tomorrow the time changes and we will be one hour behind. Oh, back to my original point about Alvin ….. he had his breakfast minutes after we got up, he stretched first….. I was shocked that he only ate 3/4 of his food. Has to be a first. He does not seem to be feeling ill or anything. I guess he just was full.

Time to get this show on the road. Shower, then some laundry and cleaning and before you know it, we will be out delivering treats. Also have to have breakfast and coffee …. but that will be after the shower.

Wishing you a Happy Halloween. Be safe and take care. It is okay to just keep you children at home ….. dress up with them …. have a little party …… give them some treats ….. play some games. This is a different year and we must change according to the times. Better to be safe than sorry. I am wearing a mask when we go out this afternoon. Keeping everyone safe.

Living with Kindness and Respect each and every day ….

I /We shall remain, As Always, Carol & Alvin

I do not have any Halloween photos in my photo gallery to share but I have this photos of me and Alvin from back in the day. Not sure what kind of collar / harness that was as he has been wearing body ones for years. He was a little fuzz ball of cuteness. Taken in 2010.

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 31st day of October, 2018.

Happy Halloween and last day of October, 2018.

Woke up to dry ground so that is a good start.

No moisture in the forecast as of last night.

Should be a great night for the treaters.

I, me and Alvin always look forward to the little ones coming around.

So many cute costumes.

Here are a few photos that I was able to locate from past Halloweens.

Some of me, some of the little treaters.

As I look at the photos – man have the children grown.

Well it is time to fly and I am not a witch.

I will make certain that someone takes photos of me with my camera so I have some for future postings.

Happy Halloween and Be safe out there.

 

Special Hello to: all of my friends and family … wishing you all a Happy Halloween.

Always, Carol & Alvin

My Grand-puppies Penny and Elton

My favourite treaters of all time if only I could have found them in their Halloween costumes that made it to the CTV National Morning Show many years ago.

Missing Penny and Elton.

 

Me ….. WHAT?

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 31st day of October, 2017.

The last day of October 2017 and Halloween.

Happy Halloween Everyone.

I am all dressed up as a “HIPPIE complete with the colourful bell bottoms.

Looking pretty groovy.

Starting to get a little warm from the layers but it is was cold in the office yesterday so I should be perfect today.

It looked dry out earlier when I looked out the front window and the back door but not now.

The street appears to be wet.

So will have a change of plans for footwear.

Drive carefully everyone.

I am so grateful to my neighbour who is giving me a ride to work today so that I do not have to change into my costume at work.  YAY.

Well this will be short today as I need to pack up the stuff for the potluck.

I made a pasta salad …. it turned out so good.

Have a Happy Happy Halloween.

Be Safe and Have Fun.

 

Special Hello to:  All the TRICK OR TREATERS out there – have a great evening.

We just take a few fun things that we have and decorate for my second favourite day of the year.

The next one is right around the corner.

FRom OUR home to YoUrs, HaPPy HaLLowEEn.

Have a wonderful day and I hope that the weather stays nice for all the kiddies and their parents.

Thought for the day…..

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Wow, Monday morning already …… I hope that you had a great weekend.

Are you dressing up for Halloween today?

I made my own costume as I do most years.

I spent $1.50 plus tax on my costume.

I am a LadyBug …… (just had to purchase the wings, was going to buy construction paper and make them until I happened upon them at the Dollar Store for $1.50).

How great is that!

I took a sturdy hair band and added black pipe cleaners and pom-poms for the antennae…..

Added some Halloween stickers for good measure.

I had a black long sleeved top and black exercise pants.

Add some Halloween socks and red shoes.

A red fluffy scarf.

Drew some dots on my cheeks and added extra makeup ….

Oh, and with the wings came a wand …. so I am a magical LadyBug.

With super powers …. perhaps I will be a LadyBug that grants WISHES.

Oh and the final BIG item …. I cut the bottom off an old red t-shirt that was from the University of Nevada …

They are the REBELS….. so I glued REBEL onto the bum of the skirt and some little flowers to the front …

Cut it down the side so that I could tie it on the side ….. (actually I had hole punched a few spots and was going to lace through some string and tie it but that did not work just the best, so I am just tying the material).

It works.

So I resemble a LadyBug.

So from our house ….. Alvin and I want to WISH YOU ALL – A HAPPY HALLOWEEN.

Have a great time out trick and treating (I hope that you will just get lots of treats and skip the tricking part).

Stay safe and have fun.

Special Halloween Hello to: Azlin (my old Halloween partner, I miss you buddy), Zane and Baby E, Lea, Mahee-Lee and David (miss your smiley faces), SELENA (miss you Princess), Hayleigh, Tanner and P ….(I remember trick or treating with your Mom) good times….

Have a great day guys….

Always, Carol

P.S. wishes that I would have downloaded my photos of the decorations I put up for Halloween …… 🙂
