Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 16th day of August, 2017.

TODAY is the birthday of one of my dear friends.

Happy Birthday “V” from me and Alvin ….

 

What a busy wonderful past week plus this has been.

I have seen family and friends that I have not seen for awhile.

It has been great.

Yesterday, Me Alvin had his teeth cleaning and thankfully he had no extractions.

I was so grateful for that …..

Once he woke up they tried to take him outside for a bathroom break but all he did was cry for his Momma and to come home.

They called me at 1:30 less than 2 hours after he had his teeth cleaning and nails trimmed.

I left right away and am grateful that the Vet is only a 5-7 minute walk from our house.

He was happy to see me as was I ….. he wanted to get out right away.

It was hard to contain him …..

Once paid the bill and received the post dental care sheet we were on our way.

He had no side effects.

Pretty much ran home.

Drank water ….. jumped onto the sofa …..

I only gave him a portion of his food for supper as directed by the Vet.

He clearly wanted more so I gave him some carrots.

Glad it went well.

 

Last night I was invited for dessert and tea to the home of a friend and neighbour.

Another friend was there as well.

I had left Alvin at home and my other friend had her dog there so I decided to go and get Alvin.

At first he was a bit excited but calmed down soon which was good.

My friend made the most delicious treats.

It was like having the High Tea at the Hotel Selkirk – Fort Edmonton Park.

We had egg salad on croissant,  cucumber on cream cheese on croissant and, garden tomatoes on cream cheese.  So good.

She also had chocolate dipped strawberries on a bed of cream cheese & mallow with blueberries.  WOW, good.

Mini vanilla and chocolate cupcakes.

AND this so good fruit lemonade and TEA.

They gave me gifts on top of the beautiful treats.

I was going to take my camera and then decided not to ….. wished that I had.

It was so sweet and so thoughtful.

 

So today getting things ready for more company.

So lucky.

Friends coming from out of province to go shopping at West Edmonton Mall, and to attend a Metallica concert here in Edmonton.

My daughter and I are meeting them later on in the afternoon for coffee and to visit.

They will stay with me and Alvin for the night.

So excited to see everyone.

 

I had better get going.

What a great vacation I am having.

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, the 20th day of December, 2013.

Well guess what …. it is SNOWING again.

I must admit that I am not surprised.

Seems like it is warmer out as well.

Sure is coming down now.

I am listening to Christmas music and when I heard “I am dreaming of a white Christmas” ……

I had an idea to rewrite it as it does not apply this year …..

More like “I am dreaming of no more snow for Christmas as we have enough” ……. thank you.

 

On this 20th day of December and only 5 sleeps till Santa arrives.

Did you bake something special for Santa?

He likes chocolate chip cookies, I seem to remember.

Well time to get my day rolling ….

Mr. Alvin has a vet appointment to get his shots, nails trimmed and an exam.

He has been restless all morning so perhaps he knows.

He really likes the staff ….. just not getting his nails trimmed….. he can be such a DIVA.

Then I have a Christmas party at my friend’s house down the street.

Tonight I work at the store and that is one full day.

Perhaps in between there will be time for cleaning a bit otherwise it will be tomorrow.

Have a great day.

Thank you for reading.

Special Hello to: my sister and nephew who are on the road again …. safe trip ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

It is a beautiful morning here in Edmonton, the sun is SHINING and it is SATURDAY.

I am so grateful to have had yesterday, today and tomorrow off from work.

I did work a three hour shift at BBW last night but otherwise I am at home to spend time with Alvin, have coffee with my girls, relax a bit and get some house and yard work done and I also want to go out and do some trash picking in our neighbourhood.

So here it is Saturday morning ….. I NEED COFFEE – EEE  ( I can smell it as it just finished perking ).

I figured as I was over the moon about my weekend that I would share that with all of you.

I am so blessed to lead a pretty charmed life.

I have the best of family and friends, who no matter how far I wander they keep me in their hearts and minds and I LOVE THEM VERY MUCH.

I always meet wonderful people.

I have the “most best” companion and friend in the world and that is Mr. Alvin, my little dog.

Who yesterday had a visit at the vet to have his nails trimmed, the “sac emptied” and then I asked to do an extra cleaning of his ears.

I felt for the little guy and he likely knew that as he cried even before his nails were trimmed.

In fact, at one point the young lady went to get an assistant.  So then Alvin had two people and me in the room and they filled his belly with treats.

I think he deliberately played us all ….. he is in fact one smart puppy dog…..

So I am glad that is done for now.

OMG, the sun is shining so brightly.

I feel incredible at this moment.  Like I could conquer the world (not in the take over sense of the word) …. but more like “anything is possible” …..

So on this day I shall endeavour to do the possible and the impossible ……

I will keep you posted.

Have a wonderful day, and I hope that the sun is shining wherever you are and most of all “that you are surrounded by all those who love you.”

I am going to post some photos over the next while and try to be more diligent when it comes to doing that …. I promise.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to:  everyone who loves you…….including me..

Always, Carol and Alvin
