Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 5th day of June, 2016.

It is a glorious bright, sunny warm with a slight cool breeze.

Does not get more perfect than that.

 

Yesterday’s birthday party was amazing.

We laughed and cried, well I cried, I do that sometimes.

Things can get emotional.

My friend baked a red velvet cake for the birthday girl.

We also had muffins and watermelon to begin the party with …..

It was a great visit and party.

We all had fun.

 

I kept physically busy yesterday by cleaning up the front lawn after my little garden dig ….

Followed by laundry, washed down the house and deck and front porch.

Mowed the back lawn as my neighbour that I share the front lawn with had mowed the front, thank you “S.”

Vacuumed the main and upstairs floor followed by steam mopping them.

Of course, dusting and bathrooms….. cannot forget them.

I will say that hauling my Electrolux canister vacuum up and down is a work out in itself.

 

After all of my work and supper was done ….. and a MOVIE …. Alvin and I joined another neighbour for an extra long walk …. over one hour.

So nice.

It was perfect outside (that was about 8:50 p.m.).

 

Well today I am preparing to call and email customers to see if they would like to order some tea as we have one back in stock that was a huge favourite.

After that I am going to canvas for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

I have two routes both in my immediate neighbourhood so that is great.

I figured that as I received the kits a few days ago that I had better get right on it as time seems to evaporate.

In February I helped canvas for the Heart Fund.

Nice to help out.

 

Update:  Alvin has definitely made a game out of pushing his chew treat off the sofa … off the front porch ….

Also yesterday when I was working out front … I had Alvin on the front porch with no leash.

Carefully keeping an eye on him and talking to him to remind him to stay.

He was doing good considering my neighbour’s sister was visiting and she was out front in her vehicle.

Anyway …. he decided to go and say hi …. so I walked over …. before I knew it he was doing 360’s on the front lawn.

He ran from one side to the other semi losing his balance and slipping but happily free and playing.

It was fun to watch.

When he was done I called him to the porch steps …. ( I was right there – watching him).

We can hear some dogs big and small barking outside and with the window open Alvin perked up to listen.

Now they have stopped.

You never know what goes on …. I just know that I love and respect my Alvin and I do the best to keep him safe, healthy and happy.

 

Well I had better get this show on the road.

Ended up really late last night and Alvin was up at 4:30 a.m. (per usual) ….. I thought going to bed after midnight might help him to sleep in but I was wrong.

So we hit the sofa for a few more zzzz’s ….. I needed it.

So lots to do.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Happy Sunday to you.

 

Special Hello to:  my sister, looking forward to the SKYPE visit after supper – about 6:30 p.m. ???

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 2nd day of February, 2016.

There have been a few flakes wondering down from the sky to take their place on my deck, onto the ground.

It feels a bit cooler this morning but perhaps it is only because I had the door open to let Alvin out into the back yard in my PJ’s.

Today we find out if spring is sooner or later.

I am hoping for sooner and not because of the winter being super cold and miserable but because the lack of bright sunshine has made me feel a bit blue.

Our winter here in Edmonton has not been unusually long or bitterly cold for long periods but we have not had the sunshine.

I miss the sunshine …..

A part of it might have to do with my location at the office …. desks block the daytime sunshine.

So unless I get up and walk about which is not much other than to the printer and there is no sunshine that way either ….

Not that I am suffering the way someone would with an illness but more in the energy field.

Lacking in motivation.

I work on being bright and cheery, positive and energized.

I have some MATCHA (ground green tea into fine powder) with my oatmeal.

It helps but there is a looming cloud ….. anyway enough of gloom and doom ….. I like the sound of the OOM ……

Okay perhaps a slight bit over the top.

More than a bit over the top ….

Enough of the drama.

January was drama and February is all about the calm and GREAT

 

Last night Mr. Alvin and I went for a walk.

There was so much salt on the sidewalks to combat the ice that it was not a fun walk for us.

As soon as I got home I quickly washed his feet and I always wash them before bed.

That way any “stuff” on them will not make it into bed with us.

 

I had a phone call from the Captain or Area Leader for the Heart Fund …. I volunteered to canvas for them.

He will be dropping off the package tonight.

 

Well almost time to leave for the office.

The sun will shine today ….

Both Alvin and I hear a cat meowing …. the same one methinks that we heard just after going to bed.

We have to go and investigate before I leave for work.

Poor thing…..sounds distressed.

 

Special Hello to:   CATS

Always, Carol and Alvin
