Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 7th day of December, 2014.

What a great weekend.

I did all of my baking.

Over 12 dozen sugar cookies – baked and iced.

Over 9.5 dozen unbaked chocolate macaroons – that is about 114 mounds of pure heaven.

2 – 9 x 13 pans of chocolate fudge and then a pie plate which translate to about 100 pieces of melt in your mouth – joy.

Over a grand total of 350 pieces of Christmas Baking …… that should go a long way.

I have a couple of cookies exchanges – family and friends visiting – some to give away …..


Another item off of my list.

Just a few more cards to write up, some to mail and others to hand deliver.

GUESS WHAT the sun is coming up and shining brightly.

It will be a great day.

Alvin is looking out our bedroom/office window and barking at something …. I better scoot over and see what all of the hub bub is about.

Well almost time to go to work at the store.

Should be a fun day with holiday shoppers.

I hope that you had a great weekend whether checking off things on your to do lists or just plain taking it easy.

I did have a chance to watch/listen to some holiday shows yesterday while I was baking.

Have a great Sunday.

Special Hello to: all those holiday shoppers ….. remember to be patient and kind …… it goes a long way and in the end everyone is much happier.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Last night after Alvin and I had supper, gone for a walk and did some laundry and other chores ….. I made myself a cup of tea and we sat on the deck in the backyard.

The evening air had a slight coolness to it …. reminding me that fall was just around the corner.  As Alvin cuddled beside me, I looked up at the sky.

There were virtually no sounds coming from my neighbourhood ….. peace.  It felt like heaven, my own little piece of it.  The clouds barely moved as I scouted

the sky for unique shapes.  So blessed and lucky am I.  It was the best fifteen minutes.  Peaceful and relaxing.

I am grateful for my little piece of heaven ….. complete with a loving puppy dog named Alvin and a garden with some roses.

Have a great day and I hope that you all have a little piece of heaven in your “own backyard”.

Always, Carol
