Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 11th day of December, 2015.

Exactly two weeks until Christmas.

I am so excited …..

This year I will Christmas at my daughter and son-in-law’s NEW house.

How exciting is that?

VERY.

The kids have decided to have our first Christmas in the new house, catered.

I am feeling so pampered ….

I believe this is the first for me.

So exciting.

I will miss “cooking” but I did “bake” so I think that satisfies that need.

Well Friday …. we are busy at the office.

We are always busy at the office.

Tomorrow my daughter is coming to work on some jewellery and for a visit.

I miss having them with us and miss having them a quick walk away.

Oh well …. life continues to change and that is good.

Mr. Alvin …. thank goodness for him…. he keeps me company and ENTERTAINED.

What a goof ball …..

I love when he hides his chew treats in the snow.

They are a beige colour.

Makes me laugh.

Such a great personality …. Mr. Alvin.

Well it remains warm here in our City but it is snowing at the moment.

There was a thin blanket of crunchy snow on the deck this morning when we first went outside.

I started going out with him and “cleaning” up right away instead of trying to find his precious bundles after work in the dark.

For some reason the snow makes a lighter reflection in the early morning than after work.

Not sure why.

Well time to get this show on the road.

End of the week …. so looking forward to time with my daughter ….. I am so blessed to have so many bright lights in my life.

Have a wonderful Friday.

Enjoy the moments …. they do not come again.

Special Hello to: my sister … SKYPE on Sunday …. I shall remember. 7:30 p.m.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome and to Thursday the 5th day of November, 2015.

It is a beautiful morning here in Edmonton.

Alvin decided that he absolutely had to get up at 3:50 a.m. ….. yes, that is right “10 minutes to 4” in the morning …..

What on earth was the boy thinking?

I cannot imagine what was running around in his brain.

I know that at that time “The Momma was thinking ….. sleep …. I want more.”

But crazy Momma that I am, I reluctantly got out of bed …. made the bed and grabbed my “bunny hug” (hoodie, for those not born in Saskatchewan, Canada) and followed the boy downstairs.

Gave him his breakfast and then outside.

Part of the thing was his “chew treat” had been left outside …. I reminded him to bring it in but he did not.

So this is what happens ….

Note to self: if he has another one un eaten make certain it is in the house ……

He is so very funny ….. I bought this bag at his last appointment.

He takes a couple of days where he buries it in the back yard or hides it under a pillow or in plain sight in the middle of the floor.

Once that fun has been exhausted he begins the process of chewing it …. devouring it.

Depending on the size it can take a few hours.

I found that out about a week ago …..

Listened to him “chawing” away on it while I was trying to go to sleep …… two hours later he was done and I was exhausted.

Oh, my boy …..

Life is certainly not dull …

Oh, cute story …. last night just a few minutes after we had left the house on our way to the park …. we came across this man, little girl and a small dog.

We could see them in the distance and as we got closer I saw the cutest bundle of black fur ever …. present company excluded (sorry Alvin) …..

Alvin ran toward them …. the little girl asked if she could pet Alvin and I said yes, (of course).  So it turns out the puppy was 8 weeks old …. about 4 pounds (fully grown 12 pounds) …. from Cuba.

The man’s name was “J” and the little girl “A” ….. the really strange thing ….. J is my brother’s name and A is my daughter’s name.  How cool is that.

Anyway we visited for a few minutes and then were on our way.

I always have fun when we walk ….. thank you Alvin for that ….

Okay, now time to get this show on the road.

Special Hello to: all those folks who lovingly and with kindness and respect take in a four-legged animal to be their forever friend.

You rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin
