Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 25th day of September, 2016.

Bright sunny morning and NOT windy.

So grateful for this nice morning.

It has been quiet …. we slept in ….. well we were up at 4:30 …. back to bed …. up and then hit the sofa for a bit.

Is that not what is referred to as a “lazy morning.”

Now we are up and at it.

Shared some coffee with my neighbour.

Working on some tea stuff.

After my mug of coffee is done we are going for a nice long walk.

I thought for something different we would walk to another neighbourhood.

Never know how many more beautiful Sundays we will have to do that so off we will go to see what we can see.

This afternoon I have a tea order to submit and then bake my son-in-law’s birthday cake for Tuesday’s supper.

It is so nice to have the time to just sit and ponder life.

To just kick back and enjoy the moment.

No worries.

Just happy in one’s own skin.

Just relaxed and enjoying life.

Feeling pretty content at this moment.

In the back ground music playing from my iPOD (actually my daughter’s).

Sun is shining brightly in through the office window.

Yesterday I took down all of the Spring/Summer ornaments / pictures from the main floor and brought up the Fall / Halloween decorations.

Not long before I am taking Fall / Halloween decorations down and bringing up the CHRISTMAS stuff.

Oh that is my favourite day of the year ….. November 1st.

Well unfortunately I have to work that day but I will put up the tree and begin the process of decorating the house.

Well I hear Mr. Alvin moaning and groaning – he is bored and would like to go for a walk.

Or maybe he does not appreciate the music that is playing.

Oh well…..

Time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you are enjoying the Fall weekend.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to: all my friends and family

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 9th day of June, 2016.

It is overcast this morning and has been since early on.

Last night after work as soon as Alvin had finished eating and having a drink we went for a walk.

We got almost half way round the lakes when it started to rain, big drops.

That was my cue to get us back home.

Sure enough it started coming down harder and harder.

We were only home about three minutes when the heavens opened and it POURED.

Mixed in with the rain were bits of ice – hail, about the size of a nickel, I would say.

I was so happy that we made it inside before the hail.

I do not mind getting wet although we would have been VERY wet, soaked to the skin.

We can use the moisture and it is a good thing.

I hope that the rain went up north.

Well today is a vacation day for me that is the reason for a much later than usual blog.

My grand-puppy Elton is spending today and tomorrow with us.

Yes, I have tomorrow off.

SO excited to just bum around.

I have some work to do on my tea business and perhaps re-organize another garage sale if the weather will be nice this weekend.

Otherwise for today …. the plan is to RELAX.

Just chill with my BOYS, my pack, my peeps.

Looks like the sun might be coming out.

Well I hope that you have a glorious Thursday.

Time to go and enjoy a big mug of COFFEE.

Take care.

Special Hello to: my sister …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. Elton is doing great and we are so happy.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 1st day of May, 2016.

Well here we are – May 1st, 2016.

The morning is almost over; the air is fresh and the sun is shining.

Once again I felt the need with this “cold” to sleep away the morning.

But I guess that is the way of the body healing itself.

I am sipping on a delectable cup of coffee as I write these words.

Alvin is laying on guard outside the office door, as he always does.

This has been an odd weekend for me.

But a restful one for the most part.

Had two wonderful long distance chats with actually two guys this weekend.

One friend and the other my nephew.

Always good to connect with people.

Today I am going to clean up the trash on the walkway to 62nd Avenue.

This will be the fourth time this spring but always good for it to be clean.

I can finally hear some voices coming in through the open window.

Someone is awake out there.

Children.

Out and about.

Certainly is the weather for it.

This coming weekend is forecasted to be in the 20’s all week.

Quite warm for the first week in May.

Well I had better get this day going as tomorrow is back to work.

Where does the time go?

 

I hope that life is treating you great.

It is okay to run that tub with nice warm water and take a relaxing bath.

You deserve it.

Go ahead …..

 

Special Hello to: all my friends and family who keep me sane.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 24th day of October, 2015.

A glorious morning.

Sky mainly clear.

Sun SHINING.

Coffee made.

Sipping on a mug.

Shared a cup already with my neighbour.

Changed begging on our bed.

Getting some things done.

Alvin has an appointment for his monthly pedicure and other personal items this morning at the Vet.

So we will do that once I have completed writing my blog and getting dressed.

Then it will be to the local grocery store and drugstore.

Time for Alvin to have hair cut and another bath.

In between there will be laundry and other household chores.

All the time enjoyed this glorious weather.

Oh how lucky we are to be having this weather near the end of October.

We are very grateful.

I am very grateful.

Each day it is all about being grateful for everything you have.

Even if you think you are stressed at your job there is always someone who would be happy to have that job.

Always be aware when speaking to others.

What is “terrible” to you might be “joyful” to others.

It is all relative.

I am reminded each day of all that surrounds me.

I learn something everyday.

Happy Happy Saturday ….

Wishing each and everyone a great weekend.

Thank you for sharing your time with me.

Special Hello to: my friends near and far ….. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
