Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 24th day of December, 2016.

No more sleeps this is Christmas Eve.

Today is the day.

So glad that today is Christmas.

We are pretty much ready.

Just a few housekeeping last minute items.

Last minute dust job and vacuum and such.

It snowed last night so of course there is shovelling on my list before my company arrives.

With any lucky no more will fall before the company arrives.

 

As Alvin and I put on the final preparations for this Christmas we remember how different our Christmas will be without our beloved Penny and Elton.

We spent so many Christmases together, and they will forever remain in a special place in our hearts.

I would like to share a few photos of our special fur-babies as we think of them this Christmas.

Christmas 2015 – Elton John Hobbs and Penny Lane Hobbs

Miss Penny, again she is quite the model....

Miss Penny, again she is quite the model….

Alvin and Penny .....

Alvin and Penny ….. he misses her…..

Ah, Miss Penny a few years back

Ah, Miss Penny a few years back

Ah, my puppies ..... Elton and Penny

Ah, my puppies ….. Elton and Penny.

 

Even though we lost our dearest Elton and Penny this last year and our hearts are aching for them, we think of all those other families who are struggling with loss this Christmas.

May their memories warm your hearts, and keep the conversation alive now and forever.

This Christmas we have additions to our family.

It will mean new traditions and more stories.

We will share with them our old stories and life will go on.

 

So on this Christmas ….

May you live your life with some “wreck-less abandon.”

Remember to be kind and generous.

Remember to be grateful …. always a good place to start.

May Santa bring you that special gift that makes you giggle with joy.

That would bring a smile to my face and more warmth to my heart.

Happy Christmas.

Special Hello to: all my family and friends, near and far, we are thinking of you and wish you were here or we were there.

With Love Always, Carol and Alvin

Fall 2016 me and me Alvin …..

Merry Christmas To All and To All a GREAT NIGHT.

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 6th day of June, 2015.

It is a beautiful morning here in Edmonton.

The sun is shining and there is a breeze, one minute.

The next it has clouded over a bit with a breeze.

I am in the throes of preparing for my friend’s Birthday party.

Just a few things to finish up ….. mainly housekeeping items.

My flowers out front need “WATER” …….

I am the host.

Yes, I am ……

I love PARTIES …… organizing …… decorating …… baking ….. whatever is needed.

Mr. Alvin is all relaxed and lying on the floor in front of the office doorway.

Oh, how calm, cool and collected he is.

What a guy.

I went to a neighbour’s birthday party last night and met a bunch of new people.

Always nice to meet new people and hear their stories.

Oh my gosh, I need COFFEE …… have to wait until 10:00 ……

Okay deep breath …… breathe.

John Legend is singing in the background …… “All of Me” ….. one of my favourite songs.

Best lyrics …..

Well I hope you all have a celebration today whether it is a birthday or just the fact that you are alive.

There is always something to celebrate.

Have a great great day.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. we “gotta” SKYPE soon ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
