Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning and WELCOME to Friday ….

Not an ordinary Friday.

But the Friday before a long weekend.

The Friday before we celebrate THANKSGIVING.

One of my most favourite times of year.

The weather …. the people …. the FOOD.

Who does not like PUMPKIN?

Pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin cookies.

Pumpkin cake.

Pumpkin Lattes.

Pumpkin tea.

Pumpkin soup.

Pumpkin muffins.

Pumpkins carved for Halloween.

Another fun time of the year.

There is always the contest for the largest PUMPKIN.

Charlie Brown and the gang.

Leaves turning such a vast variety of colours.

Leaves laying on the sidewalks and lawns.

Walking through the leaves …. crunching them.

The smell of the air.

Birds leaving for the winter.


We call the day THANKSGIVING but really we should be thankful all year round.

I am so grateful to have good health.

I am so grateful to be surrounded by the most wonderful people on the planet.

They are all family.

I am so grateful to Alvin in my life.

Although there are times that he drives me a little crazy and I’m quite certain that I do the same to him.

I love the little guy.

I am so grateful to have this beautiful house that we can call home.

I am so grateful to live in this great Country.

Life may not be perfect in all eyes.

But it is perfect for me.


Life is filled with many rainbows.

They come and go.

Latch on and have the time of your life.


Well almost time to leave for work.

I am so excited to have this weekend.

Teddy is coming for a sleepover on Saturday.

My kids and grandpups are coming for supper on Sunday.


I wish and hope that you have a life filled with great joy, good health,

much laughter and abundance.

Happy Friday.

Respectfully and filled with kindness just for you.


Always, Carol & Alvin




Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, February 15th, 2013…..

What a grand day ….. my day started (after breakfast) with a SKYPE call to my dear sister ….

We got carried away and visited for almost 1.5 hours but it was so sweet …. I miss seeing her …..

I just wanted to say how grateful I am for the thoughtful gifts I received on Valentine’s Day.

I received a “chocolate brownie square” from two thoughtful co-workers (couple) at the office and then my so sweet kids ….. bought pasta for supper (from their favourite pasta place).

So I had a lovely supper ……thank you ….. for a wonderful VALENTINE’S DAY.

Anyway, I just wanted to share those things.

I hope that you are having a great Friday ……

I will be back on Monday …..

Have a great weekend.

Special Hello: to all those people who take the time to read my blog …. I am eternally grateful.


Always, Carol and Alvin
