Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 11th day of August, 2018.

Happy Birthday to my brother “J.”

Wishing you a great day my brother.

The sky is overcast with smoke and clouds.

I so wished that it would RAIN.

Rain and put out all of the forest fires.

The smoke has been intense here and I can only imagine what it is like in the areas affected by the fires.

 

WE have been spending a quiet last day or so.

Me and the boys (Alvin and Teddy) have been vegging in front of the fans.

No windows open as it has been so smoky.

Too hot to move around much.

I am also watching Humphrey the Cat and Cinder the Gecko.

Just watching the babies.

Too hot to spend the time that I need writing up my HOLIDAY POST complete with PHOTOS.

But I will.

 

The babies are wanting to go downstairs.

I had a refreshing shower.

I have found that a wet facecloth laid on the pups backs/tummies when they are laying down, helps keep them cool.

Funny how both of them actually just laid with the cloth on them.

 

I am so excited to share my Birthday trip stories and photos (there are lots of photos).

But with the heat and the smoke, I cannot spend much time upstairs on the computer.

But I will.

 

Time to go check on the other babies.

Mine want to go outside.

I sure hope that it rains.

 

The gal that baked my 60th birthday cake from work has been asked to bake me one for my 61st.

The cake is being delivered this morning.

I have invited friends over to share ….. this will be a two or three event.

Whenever people have time to come and have a piece of cake.

 

Getting hot now.

Have to move the fan back downstairs to cool the main floor.

 

Have a great day.

Keep cool and I hope that you are safe.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who read my posts, thank you.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 20th day of February, 2018.

Whoops, almost said Monday.

The air felt warmer than I expected when outside this morning.

GUESS WHAT?

We went to bed late for a work night but I was engrossed in the OLYMPICS, Figure Skating.

Pairs Dancing …. they were all so good.

I am not sure if I saw all of them but there were almost ten or so pairs that I was able to enjoy their performances.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching them.

Was very thrilled to see CANADA win the GOLD …. Congratulations.

The FRENCH team were a joy to watch ….. they were all very good.

Anyway, back to this morning.

I woke up just before 4:00 a.m. and Mr. Alvin was still sleeping away.

Watching the clock 4:15, 4:30 and then 5:03 and then the alarm went off at 5:10 a.m.

ALVIN SLEPT until the ALARM WENT OFF.

I think quite honestly this has to be the first time in years …..

He certainly did jump when the alarm went off.

Now I am in dilemma, do we go to bed later and sleep to the alarm?

Would it even work two days in a row?

I do miss our hitting the sofa for some zzz’s and cuddling.

I guess we shall see what tonight and tomorrow morning brings.

 

We had an awesome FAMILY DAY weekend.

Alvin and I entertained and we worked and relaxed.

Does not get better than that.

I am so happy that Alvin has had Teddy around so much lately.

The little guy is good company for Mr. Alvin.

They even played ….. chased each other around the main floor.

Quite cute.

 

Well almost time to hit the road again.

Man, it seems like I say that often.

Happy Tuesday.

I hope that you all had an awesome weekend.

 

Special Hello to: You …. yes, you.  Thank you for being kind and have an awesome day.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of November, 2017.

The sun is shining from behind a light cloud.

Alvin is barking as he tries to pick up his chew treat from the office floor.

What a morning!

Oh, me Alvin.

What a boy you are.

 

My neighbour came for a mug of coffee.

It is a thing we do.

We share the costs of some items as we are both single.

It works.

Always nice to have good neighbours.

 

I love writing on this blog and in my journal every day.

It allows me to look back to see weather, what was going on in the world and with us.

Sometimes we forget or actually most times we forget the little things, the good, the great little things that happen along the way only remembering the bad.

So this way I can see what was going on and be even more grateful for all that I have and for who I am.

I truly am surrounded by some of the best people on the planet.

So as our weather has been all over the place, thought would check and see the weather on this day for the past few years.

Today is supposed to be plus 3 celsius and then minus 20 something tomorrow.

What a change.

ARGH.

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 19th day of November, 2013.

I think it is going to be the winter of SO MUCH snow.

We almost had sunshine for a bit earlier yesterday,  and then it started to snow once again.

More shovelling.

Well time to finish my chores before my friend comes at 1:00 p.m. to take apart my clothes dryer.

He is pretty sure he knows what is wrong and will take out the broken part and then get the new part.

Feeling so grateful to have generous, talented friends.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Just going to vacuum upstairs and then take Mr. Alvin for a walk.

Then home and wash the main floor before the dryer appointment.

YAY, Sunday.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who are blessed to have good friends (and family, of course).

Always, Carol & Alvin
