Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 26th day of February, 2018.

Another gorgeous day on the way.

Yesterday was so beautiful.

We/I had the best weekend.

Started off speaking with my sister for her birthday.

She was at her son’s home so I had the great opportunity to speak with my nephew and his wife.

Great way to begin the weekend.

Saturday night out for dinner and a movie with my friends.

Sunday morning my daughter brought Mr. Alvin home and also brought along grand-pup Milo.

We had pancakes together and a great visit.

In the afternoon, Teddy and his Aunt came for a visit and stayed for supper.

Teddy’s Aunt brought the fixings for a supreme TACO meal.

OMG, so good.

Absolutely delicious.

I supplied dessert which was pineapple and my homemade chocolate chip cookies with Steeped Tea’s “Coconut Key Lime Dip” added.

Best two days.

Both Alvin and I had a mini break surrounded by friends and family.

We are so blessed.

Hard to believe it is Monday morning already …. where does the time go.

 

The Olympics are over …..

I am very proud of all the Olympic Athletes for their participation in the games.

So very proud of our Canadian Olympic Athletes who came in 3rd in the overall medal count.

It is great to see the world come together and share such an amazing experience.

 

Well here we go again, almost time to go and catch that bus.

My daughter is giving me a ride home (YAY, Momma).

Last week I got a ride home every night.

So lucky.

 

Have an awesome day everyone.

Be kind and respectful.

Do your utmost best to be a good citizen of this planet.

Be there …. show up …..

 

Special Hello to: my friends and my family who made this such an amazing weekend.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 22nd day of February, 2018.

Warming up?

Spring only a few weeks away?

Time will tell.

 

Are you watching the Olympics?

Unbelievable performances.

I was watching the half pike last night.

Sure hope that is the right name.

Some of the athletes had some terrible falls but all that I saw got up.

Crazy.

Some over 5 meters into the air.

WOW.

 

Well my little athlete was up extra early ….

At like 3:30 …. let him outside.

Then hit the sofa until 4:00 when we got up and he ate and then back outside.

Just I wait until the time changes ….. that is always fun.

Perhaps it will work out.

Tonight he is going for a few days to his sister’s house.

He will have fun minus the car ride.

His Momma will sleep until the alarm goes off, hopefully.

 

Well here it is time once again to leave the house.

I am wearing a new pair of pants that shrunk after being washed.

Wha a a, oh well.

I think shorter is in style right now.

No time to change and I am not wasting a new pair of pants.

After a few washes they will be capris and right in time for summer.

Laughing ….. smiling …. gotta go.

 

Special Hello to: all of you folks who take the time to read my blog.  Thank you.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 20th day of February, 2018.

Whoops, almost said Monday.

The air felt warmer than I expected when outside this morning.

GUESS WHAT?

We went to bed late for a work night but I was engrossed in the OLYMPICS, Figure Skating.

Pairs Dancing …. they were all so good.

I am not sure if I saw all of them but there were almost ten or so pairs that I was able to enjoy their performances.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching them.

Was very thrilled to see CANADA win the GOLD …. Congratulations.

The FRENCH team were a joy to watch ….. they were all very good.

Anyway, back to this morning.

I woke up just before 4:00 a.m. and Mr. Alvin was still sleeping away.

Watching the clock 4:15, 4:30 and then 5:03 and then the alarm went off at 5:10 a.m.

ALVIN SLEPT until the ALARM WENT OFF.

I think quite honestly this has to be the first time in years …..

He certainly did jump when the alarm went off.

Now I am in dilemma, do we go to bed later and sleep to the alarm?

Would it even work two days in a row?

I do miss our hitting the sofa for some zzz’s and cuddling.

I guess we shall see what tonight and tomorrow morning brings.

 

We had an awesome FAMILY DAY weekend.

Alvin and I entertained and we worked and relaxed.

Does not get better than that.

I am so happy that Alvin has had Teddy around so much lately.

The little guy is good company for Mr. Alvin.

They even played ….. chased each other around the main floor.

Quite cute.

 

Well almost time to hit the road again.

Man, it seems like I say that often.

Happy Tuesday.

I hope that you all had an awesome weekend.

 

Special Hello to: You …. yes, you.  Thank you for being kind and have an awesome day.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 6th day of August, 2016.

The sun is shining.

The morning air still has a crispness to it with the coolness of the breeze.

I can hear magpies squawking away.

There is a hum of traffic from the highway that goes around our city.

This is Saturday morning in Edmonton.

My house is quiet except for the clicking sound from the keyboard as I type these words.

Alvin is curled up at the end of our bed waiting patiently for me to finish and get this day going.

 

Last night we watched part of the open ceremonies from Rio De Janeiro ….. very colourful and different.

I especially enjoyed how they incorporated a piece of the ceremony about the ENVIRONMENT.

The whole premise of the ceremonies was about us all, mankind.

Maybe with an audience of about three billion people it will open some eyes.

I love how they gave each of the 11,000 athletes a sapling to plant.

11,000 trees, how splendid.

We, I did not watch it all as it got too late for me but I recorded it to watch later.

Well done Rio.

 

Well two days before I am back to work for a couple of days and then off for the rest of the week.

Nice short work week – two days.

Wouldn’t that be nice for always.

 

I baked some bran muffins and infused them with hydrated fruit tea from my collection of Steeped Tea.

They turned out so yummy.

Who would think that you could add tea to muffins.

When they were baking it seemed glorious in the house.

Alvin really wanted some.

But did not think muffins would be a good thing for him.

He is such a foodie.

 

Well time to get going here.

Check the lotto tickets.

Do some laundry.

Change bedding …..

Make coffee for me and my neighbour “S” ……

 

Happy Saturday everyone.

Enjoy your weekend.

 

Special Hello to: all my friends all over the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

P.S.  Alvin is no longer on the bed, I guess he decided to be closer to me as he is lying outside the office door.  He truly is a Momma’s boy.  Gotta love that little guy.
