Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 16th day of August, 2017.

TODAY is the birthday of one of my dear friends.

Happy Birthday “V” from me and Alvin ….

 

What a busy wonderful past week plus this has been.

I have seen family and friends that I have not seen for awhile.

It has been great.

Yesterday, Me Alvin had his teeth cleaning and thankfully he had no extractions.

I was so grateful for that …..

Once he woke up they tried to take him outside for a bathroom break but all he did was cry for his Momma and to come home.

They called me at 1:30 less than 2 hours after he had his teeth cleaning and nails trimmed.

I left right away and am grateful that the Vet is only a 5-7 minute walk from our house.

He was happy to see me as was I ….. he wanted to get out right away.

It was hard to contain him …..

Once paid the bill and received the post dental care sheet we were on our way.

He had no side effects.

Pretty much ran home.

Drank water ….. jumped onto the sofa …..

I only gave him a portion of his food for supper as directed by the Vet.

He clearly wanted more so I gave him some carrots.

Glad it went well.

 

Last night I was invited for dessert and tea to the home of a friend and neighbour.

Another friend was there as well.

I had left Alvin at home and my other friend had her dog there so I decided to go and get Alvin.

At first he was a bit excited but calmed down soon which was good.

My friend made the most delicious treats.

It was like having the High Tea at the Hotel Selkirk – Fort Edmonton Park.

We had egg salad on croissant,  cucumber on cream cheese on croissant and, garden tomatoes on cream cheese.  So good.

She also had chocolate dipped strawberries on a bed of cream cheese & mallow with blueberries.  WOW, good.

Mini vanilla and chocolate cupcakes.

AND this so good fruit lemonade and TEA.

They gave me gifts on top of the beautiful treats.

I was going to take my camera and then decided not to ….. wished that I had.

It was so sweet and so thoughtful.

 

So today getting things ready for more company.

So lucky.

Friends coming from out of province to go shopping at West Edmonton Mall, and to attend a Metallica concert here in Edmonton.

My daughter and I are meeting them later on in the afternoon for coffee and to visit.

They will stay with me and Alvin for the night.

So excited to see everyone.

 

I had better get going.

What a great vacation I am having.
