Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning …. Wednesday finally …. December 18, 2019.

I am getting SO excited for my Christmas break.

Will be great to be home with Alvin and our little friends.

Arriving on Saturday afternoon for a sleepover and going home sometime on Sunday will be Teddy and his little sister Kobi.

On Sunday, Humphrey arrives for a week and will watch over Cinder as well.

Cannot forget about the gekko.

Aspen and Milo will be here Christmas Eve with Mom and Dad spending Christmas Day at Grandma’s house.

 

Today feels like a blast from the past:

One of my first posts from December of 2010.

What happened to 2010?

I am so pondering while writing up the letter to be enclosed with my Christmas card about where 2010 went?

It came in quietly, I barely was aware.

It snuggled down tightly and buried within …..

Suddenly March, then April and then June.

But where it did go?

As I watch from above …… July and then August …..

Summer came and summer went.

Autumn well it was spent.

Now it’s December and almost Christmas.

If you are wondering what happened to 2010

You are not alone, I share your sentiments along with another eight billion or so people.

If you noticed at the beginning of this “story” I was drafting my Christmas letter – just so that you know – it did get written and sent.

So from me and Alvin, WE WISH YOU A HAPPY HAPPY CHRISTMAS & ALL THE BEST IN 2011.

May you always be surrounded by a loving family and friends.

May you be in perfect health (focus on good thoughts, they keep the body healthy, too)

May you laugh every single day (even if it is at yourself, because if you cannot laugh at YOU, who can you laugh at?)

May you love and be passionate about all that you do..

May your life be abundant in every single way.

May your gift of smile brighten someone’s day.

May you remember to help those less fortunate.

May you always be the BEST that you can be.

Happy Holidays …..

Always, Carol and a very patient Alvin (sniffing around in the hallway, now he is in the office)…….

 

I always love to read things from a few years ago …. mostly they are more than relevant today.

Wishing you a Happy Wednesday.

Our office is having a “Christmas Brunch” for us.

Wonder what will be on the menu?

We also have an opportunity to go and check out the renovations for our newly renovated new “old” office.

We move back there in January 2020.

New space for a new YEAR.

Very cool.

 

 

Have an awesome day.

Remember even when a package takes a sharp left turn instead of angling to the right,  it will show up in time for Christmas.

We just have to laugh.

Oh, the Post Office.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 2nd day of June, 2018.

The sun is shining bright and the wind is blowing.

The end to several days of off and on rain.

We were grateful to have the moisture.

Noticed on our front lawn this morning some little yellow flowers.

Dandelions.

They are on my half of the lawn.

So pretty but considered to be a “weed.”

The lawn is too damp to mow at this time but perhaps later in the day.

The grass has grown so tall in spots.

YAY, get to mow the lawn.

 

I would like to share something with you all.

Last night when I was on FB Messenger, I was chatting with my daughter.

We were going back and forth.

Then all of a sudden there was a second chat box appeared and I read the message.

I wondered why my daughter would still be at work after 5:00 p.m. but continued in haste without looking at the top of the message box.

So I quickly replied to her message taking into our previous conversation.

GUESS what ….. I replied to one of my friends with a message that was funny to me and my daughter but CONFUSING to my friend.

When she replied back and I realized what I had done.

I was laughing so HARD that I almost peed my pants.

OMG, how could I have been so careless.

It was not private but private enough.

I am quite certain that my friend is still baffled by the note even thought I tried to explain.

Next time I see her I can go into proper detail.

Anyway, NOTE TO SELF, when replying to someone on FB, make certain that you are talking to the same person.

I do know that a second chat box means a second conversation but somehow last night after work, tired, I did not think of that.

Anyway, it still brings a smile to my face.

I should check with my daughter to see if I could somehow use the details as it was SO FUNNY.

I still cannot believe it.

Be careful when hosting two conversations on FB messenger at the same time.

 

Well still on “pet patrol.”

Alvin was up at 5 a.m. therefore his Momma was up at the time as well.

After I looked after him with breakfast and outdoor visit; I went over to look after Humphrey and Cinder.

Yup, 5 a.m. ….. needless to say after that it was back to the sofa.

It was very foggy and calm at 5 a.m….

 

Well after I finish this post, drinking my mug of coffee and getting dressed; we are off to the VET.

Alvin requires more food ( I wonder why? ) and some glucosamine.

Then home and laundry and some cleaning.

Once it is dry enough I will mow the grass out front.

 

So off to another Saturday ….. lots to do.

I hope that you are enjoying the weekend so far.

Happy Saturday.

 

Special Hello to: my friend “V” who always gives me hope that I can do anything.

Always, Carol & Alvin
