Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to the 22nd day of December, 2017.

The sky is light and the sun is up as it is late.

I used a day of vacation so that I could be at home with Alvin and to give him a hair trim and bath.

There are several things that I need to get done before Christmas so this gives me the opportunity to do so.

Well I was pooped so I did sleep in after our original start time of 4:00 a.m. which was a nice treat.

So just sipping on a up of coffee in my PJ’s at after 10:00 a.m. and it feels great.

Sometimes you just have to do it.

Lots to do but I will get them done.

Nice to be home and chilling with my boy.

Listening to the Christmas shows on the television.

Our temperatures are beginning to drop as some ARTIC AIR blasts through.

Winter in Western Canada.

There was ever so light of a dusting of snow last night.

Fluffy and white.

Mostly ground showing.

 

So time to go and drink my mug of coffee before it gets cold.

I am so excited for Christmas with my family.

Tomorrow morning coffee date with two of my girl friends.

YAY …….

What a great day to hold Christmas on Monday.

Monday will not be blah or dreaded this year.

Enjoy your time with your loved ones.

 

Happy Friday …..

 

Special Hello to:  my friend “I” who lives in Sweden…..

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 18th day of December, 2016.

Only 6 sleeps till Christmas Eve.

Last night from the time I was picked up for our Girl’s Christmas Out Christmas Supper, I noticed a change in the temperature.

This morning even the slight bit of breeze feels warmer.

So warmer temperatures are on the way.

We had a great time at a nearby restaurant for our First Annual Christmas Supper for one of my trio of friends.

They are the young ones (closer to my daughter’s age).

We shared stories and good food.

It was a wonderful evening out.

Today is my baking day.

I am baking a batch of my sugar cookies for one of the friend’s that I was out with last night.

She absolutely loves them and purchased all of the ingredients and I am making them for her.

After they are done I am going to whip up some fudge, chocolate macaroons and chocolate chip cookies.

Not multiple batches as previous years.

Just enough to give a bit away (my other friend of our trio “G” has a son that loves my fudge so he will get some) and some for us for Christmas and over the holidays.

After that I just have to put the finishing touches for the gifts for my kids and wrap them.

We are reusing things from around our homes.

No money has been spent.

Actually this is fun and I have enjoyed putting things together for them.

Definitely will be taking Mr. Alvin for a walk today ….. so thankful for the warmer temperatures.

Well time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you have a great Sunday and week ahead.

Need coffee ……. then time to clean off the counter and start mixing the dough for the cookies.

Then while it is chilling I can relax and sip on a mug of coffee before getting hard core into the baking.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to: my friends back in Regina ….. miss you gals and guys.

Always, Carol and Alvin
