2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you doing this morning? We are doing great. Bed about 10:00 p.m., first time up at 4:00 a.m. and then again at almost 6:00 a.m. – feeling rested this morning. I hope that you had a good sleep as well. The sun is shining brightly this morning and I feel that it is going to be an awesome day. Today we get an estimate to replace our shingles. It will be a relief to have them replaced as they are in poor condition despite the age of them. They were not a good quality and were not properly affixed to the roof. Most of the folks in our neighbourhood have or are replacing them. Yesterday my kids changed their cell phone provider, one of those “visits” to the door kind of thing and then because something had to be done with my phone in person, my kids had to make an “emergency” trip to my house. They brought the pups. It was great to see them all. What a whirlwind of an evening. After supper I went for groceries as well. All is fixed now and the fridge is full once again. Wow, fruits and vegetables are sure expensive these days. Also a gal from work who placed a tea order a while back is coming for an outside visit and to pick up her tea. We will be walking after work as the shingle estimator is coming at noon. I am so happy to see the sun shining so brightly. My flowers are looking so pretty this morning. A warm day on the way, about +24 degrees celsius.

Now that was a paragraph jammed packed full of a mix of things. No rhyme or reason, just the way things spill out of my brain.

We are watching Cynder, Humphrey and Bogart this weekend while their Momma is taking a weekend trip. She deserves a break as she has been working so hard. I am excited to spend time with them. Might even bring the cats to our house.

Also before I forget. The night before last, I was having a craving for something sweet. So what happened next? I baked some cookies. No chocolate chips? Nope. I made using my base chocolate chip cookie recipe a new cookie blend. I made the most delectable cookies with “raisins and coconut.” Just happen to have lots of those sweet items on hand so that is what I used. The different chew between the raisins and the coconut” made them ultra chewy and mmmm good.

Time to get this show on the road. Get the coffee brewing (premade earlier this morning).

Wishing you a wonderful day. May you laugh and have so much joy this Thursday.

Continuing to live with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, gratitude always.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 26th day of February, 2018.

Another gorgeous day on the way.

Yesterday was so beautiful.

We/I had the best weekend.

Started off speaking with my sister for her birthday.

She was at her son’s home so I had the great opportunity to speak with my nephew and his wife.

Great way to begin the weekend.

Saturday night out for dinner and a movie with my friends.

Sunday morning my daughter brought Mr. Alvin home and also brought along grand-pup Milo.

We had pancakes together and a great visit.

In the afternoon, Teddy and his Aunt came for a visit and stayed for supper.

Teddy’s Aunt brought the fixings for a supreme TACO meal.

OMG, so good.

Absolutely delicious.

I supplied dessert which was pineapple and my homemade chocolate chip cookies with Steeped Tea’s “Coconut Key Lime Dip” added.

Best two days.

Both Alvin and I had a mini break surrounded by friends and family.

We are so blessed.

Hard to believe it is Monday morning already …. where does the time go.

 

The Olympics are over …..

I am very proud of all the Olympic Athletes for their participation in the games.

So very proud of our Canadian Olympic Athletes who came in 3rd in the overall medal count.

It is great to see the world come together and share such an amazing experience.

 

Well here we go again, almost time to go and catch that bus.

My daughter is giving me a ride home (YAY, Momma).

Last week I got a ride home every night.

So lucky.

 

Have an awesome day everyone.

Be kind and respectful.

Do your utmost best to be a good citizen of this planet.

Be there …. show up …..

 

Special Hello to: my friends and my family who made this such an amazing weekend.

Always, Carol & Alvin
