Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 8th day of April, 2015.

Well I will admit that I am running a couple of minutes behind so this will be short.

Starting to get used to the new schedule.

Thought better try it before the kids move to their new house.

I will be leaving the house at 6:10 so that I can catch the bus and hopefully arrive at the office before 7:30 a.m.

This will be for a short time.

Then I will be able to leave about 6:30 a.m. for the office.

Which doesn’t seem like much but early in the morning 20 minutes, is 20 minutes.

Last night I signed up with my friend “G” for boot camp.

Every Tuesday night for eight weeks.

I knew that I was out of shape but it makes you realize just how “inactive” we really are in our day to day lives.

I feel good this morning other than tired …..

Perhaps tomorrow will be the telling story.

I break my time down into segments in the morning.

That way I know what needs to be done and how much time I have ….. seems to work.

The kids are home today as they go for the final walk through in their brand new house.

I am beyond excited to see the finished product.

Hopefully I can make it over before they get moved in ….. like to see it while it is empty.

Well I had better hop to it here.

I hope that you have an amazing Wednesday.

Remember to try something new ….. mine is the boot camp.

I did go once but never signed up for the class.

I am looking forward to finally getting my core back to it’s original glory.

Or at least have a core that works.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. I miss you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 29th day of June, 2014.

Wow, two days left in June ……

Then Canada Day ……

It has been a very rewarding weekend thus far.

Considering I spent 3.5 days last week with dental issues, I am happy to say all is well.

Me and Alvin moved our bed from the master bedroom to the office.

My daughter, son-in-law and grand-puppies are moving in with us in July.

They are building a new house and their current home has sold.

We are very excited.

I gladly, gave up the master bedroom to have them move in with us.

It will be wonderful having someone other than Alvin to talk to ….. although he is great company …. not much of a “talker.”

Anyway, we have our bed, night stand and computer …… don’t need more than that.

I feel like a little kid ….. so excited to have a “new room.”  ……

I want to hang up some pictures etc on the walls.

I moved all of my book cases and books and odds and ends to the guest bedroom …..

It looks actually quite nice and I was pleasantly surprised that they all fit and it looks great.

I will share photos later ….. just getting ready to go to work at the store.

I have decided to have a garage sale in a couple of weeks.

Give and sell things.

I have so much and I feel like downsizing ……

Mr. Alvin seems to have settled in as he is standing up on his hind legs looking out the window.  (on the bed which is close to the window).

Last night he wasn’t sure …..

When we went to bed …. he went into the master first and then when I said “to bed” ….. he seemed to understand.

We are happy ….. I am truly so excited to have them with us.

I am grateful that I have the room/space for them to live with us.

How very cool.

They are the best kids and so good to me and Alvin ……

Canada Day, I am working at the store which is cool ….. so anyone shopping I can “wish them a Happy Canada Day.”

It is overcast and windy at the moment.

Mr. Sun is trying to come out from behind the clouds.

I think Alvin really like the new bedroom ……. some new views for him to look at …..

Last night I baked a rhubarb (from my friend) and apple (from my brother) crisp and also tried a new recipe from my friend, Val – a rhubarb (threw in a few apples) upside down cake.

Between the moving upstairs, some cleaning and laundry ….. baking down at 11:00 p.m.

Nothing like baking and then going to bed ….. the house smells amazing.

Well I hope you all have a great Sunday.

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing – play and work safe.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello: to my cousin “J” …… thank you.  I am feeling much better now that I got my “mouth” tended to and also getting the bed and stuff moved.  Haven’t tasted the crisp but I added brown sugar …. smells amazing.

Always, Carol and Alvin
