Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning Canada.

Tuesday morning.

Our Federal Election is now over and it would appear that the Liberal Party under the leadership of Justin Trudeau has held on with a Minority Government.

The  Official Opposition under the leadership of Andrew Scheer is the Conservative Party.

The following parties all have various number of seats in government in order of the most to the least with one.

Bloc Québécois

New Democrat

Green

Independent

 

Well it was an interesting evening but not a real surprise.

Or at least not to me.

 

Last night after work Alvin had his supper, we went for a walk, took out the trash, raked up the leaves front and back all before I caught a ride to vote with one of my friends

at 5:45 (home at 4:40 p.m.).

Good night, all in all.

I am happy that I was able to get the leaves raked for the fourth time – just in case.

Although I did hear another double digit plus day later this week.

Whoot Whoot.

Awesome news.

Oh and Humphrey joined us last night after work.

 

Those darn little plant flies.

Not many but enough to be annoying.

 

Well almost time to go back downstairs.

I had better remember to take that box of kleenex to work.

Yesterday, I forgot and kept reaching for one.

 

Happy Tuesday.

Oh, I have a costume for Halloween.

Thank you to my friend for lending me her “Harry Potter” costume.

I am using my own hair as I have a similar hair cut … who knew.

 

Happiness lies in a life lived with kindness and respect.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 3rd day of October, 2016.

We had a beautiful Sunday.

Bright sunny skies.

Felt warm.

Had coffee with two of my friends in the morning.

Went for a walk with Alvin in the afternoon.

Trimmed our tree in the front and raked the leaves again.

Likely will be a couple more times.

Flowers still blooming away.

No moisture over night.

YAY.

I have been trying to keep this cold at bay but alas this morning it has taken over.

Not too bad at this point and hopefully it stays this way or gets better.

This coming up weekend is a three day one which is nice.

Another weekend come and gone.

Another weekend enjoyed.

Back to work.

Note to self:  take kleenex.

I hope that you had a great weekend.

Happy Monday.

Special Hello to: You, just remember that you are awesome.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 2nd day of April, 2015.

Well that snow did eventually stick as it snowed all day long.

We now have snow covering the deck once again.

It is that heavy wet snow …. the kind that is hard to shovel.

Great for snowmen or snow people.

Once the sun stays out it will melt.

We always seem to have a snow storm at the end of March ….. beginning of April.

This is quite normal.

I am grateful for the moisture as the ground was dry.

Should help clean things as well.

Well tomorrow our office is closed for Good Friday and also on Easter Monday.

Tomorrow and Saturday will be my last two shifts at the store.

As much as I will miss all of my friends there – I am so looking forward to having a life once again.

By that I mean …. coming home every night ….. walking with Alvin on a regular basis …. every night.

Having the weekends at home to do whatever I wish.

Last night after work my daughter and I stopped at West Edmonton Mall.

She wanted to use the last of her gift card at a store named DeSerres ( art supplies and more ).

I ended up picking up some coloured “fineliner” pens and a mini sketch pad.

I plan on getting back into making my own cards and also doing some sketching.

We did also at the start stop at the TARGET store just to take a walk through.

There is barely anything left but we did find some make-up.

We were both appalled by the damage customers had done to what remained of the products.

Like the makeup …. packages opened ….. powders all over ….. dirty kleenex’s thrown in with the products in the bins …… just very dirty and messy.

I feel so much for the employees …. they did not deserve such disrespect.

For the most part any of the staff that I saw seemed to be putting on a brave face.

I hope that they all found employment.

We also had a nice dinner together at FRESHI’s ( my favourite place to eat ).

Followed by a trip to the SKETCHERS store (where we each bought a pair of shoes).

Quick trip to CHAPTERS but they did not have what my daughter wanted.

After a stressful day at the office it was just what the doctor ordered.

Well time to leave for work.

I hope that you have a great day.

Wherever you go and whatever you do …. please show respect for the folks around you.

Also if you happen upon our four-legged friends please be kind to them as well.

We share this planet.

Special Hello to: all those folks who read my blog …. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 29th day of January, 2015.

How are you this morning?

Another weekend about to arrive.

What are your plans?

Mine are pretty much the same from week to week.

I have a list of things to do on Saturday my day off for the week.

The list can range from laundry which is always on the top to running out to take Alvin to the Vet to have his pedicure to coffee with my girl friends to making jewellery to cleaning.

It is a varied list for the most part from week to week.

NICE.

I am very blessed and even though sometimes my “EGO” gets in the way ( I do not like when it rears it’s ugly head as I always go over and over the situation and give myself heck ).

I guess most people have a moment or three.

I try very hard every day to be polite, helpful and kind and not to let my feelings which are my EGO take over a situation.

Because it usually means I let a comment or situation be personal and most times they are not.

Last night I let some comments get my EGO and I regret a couple of things that I said and not that they were particularly mean or low-spirited but I felt regretful for letting the words leave my mouth.

You know what I mean.

I believe that most people let it happen from time to time.

Sometimes it is just that we take things personally when they are not meant to be .

Anyway …. that is my “thought” for this Friday.

Try to … I will be a better, more thoughtful, kind and generous person today.

Thank you for reading and I love your comments.

Special Hello to: all my fellow bloggers ….. great job.

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S: this thought has always ran through my mind ….. who are the people who get to design the “facial tissues boxes” ….. the KLEENEX boxes and such.  They always do such an awesome job.  Now I want my kleenex boxes to match my decor.  I would love to design these boxes.  I think this would be one of the best jobs on the planet and you never hear about it.
