Thought for the day…..

Good Afternoon and Welcome to Saturday the 3rd day of January, 2015.

WOW, it is Saturday.

I got off to a late start so this blog which would normally have been written early in the morning is being written in mid afternoon.

I just needed some extra sleep this morning.

Definitely need to get back into my regular routine.

OMG I just about had a heart attack.

I removed the rug from beside my bed to throw it into the wash (doing laundry) and unbeknownst to me Alvin was trying to jump onto the bed.

The floor is laminate and is slippery and all of a sudden I heard a crash and as he flew into the air he came down on his back onto the floor.

I jumped up and scooped him into my arms.

He seems to be okay … sure hope so.

Reminder to self ….. watch him when the rug is gone from the bed side.

I did have an IKEA ottoman which was perfect for him to climb up onto the bed but this summer when I sold the matching chair I decided to sell the ottoman.

Next on my list is to replace it ….. it was perfect as it had a gradual incline for the puppies.

Oh, my heart is still racing …. my poor baby.

Well just having a regular Saturday …. doing laundry and some cleaning ….. getting back to the norm.

I hope that you are having a great Saturday.

Listening to the soundtrack from “Guardians of the Galaxy” …. love that music.

Watched the movie on New Year’s Eve … great movie.

I was so grateful to receive a couple of  iTUNES gift cards for Christmas so have been downloading some great music.

Time to get back to work.

Happy Saturday.

I do have a great life.

Special Hello to: my friend “P” who left me a voicemail …. yes we will chat soon.

Always, Carol and Alvin


This is “me Alvin” ……. with one of his Christmas presents.

Laying on his blanket that was a gift from his foster parents …. coming up five years old.

I am shocked it is still intact.
