Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 27th day of May, 2017.

It is a glorious morning here in Edmonton with the sunny shining full blast and a breeze to keep it all in check.

The birds are singing.

There were an assortment of birds landing and taking off from our deck this morning.

Alvin wanted to catch the magpie.

But I invited him back into the house.

Birds are free to fly …..

Alvin not so much.

 

Excitement ….. we are hosting a Birthday Party for one of my friends who happens to live in the neighbourhood.

I do love a good party.

Nothing better than friends, coffee and CAKE.

Great way to begin a weekend.

After the party Alvin and I will check in with our friends and perhaps take a walk followed by the ZOO.

I am excited to go with my daughter to the ZOO this evening for our OFFICE PARTY.

Two events in one day ……

BUSY and I LOVE IT.

So excited to spend the day with my dear girl friends and my daughter.

Alvin will be happy to have so many girls around …..

 

Well 35 minutes to party time.

Just have to remove the p.j.’s and get some actual clothes on …..

Sipping on coffee ….. putting clothes away from the laundry that I did last night.

The cake was baked last night and I just iced it a few minutes ago.

Decorated last night.

Wrapped the gift and wrote up a card last night.

House clean.

I think we are almost ready except to put on a fresh pot of coffee.

I could not wait till 10:00 a.m. …. so I made a pot earlier for another neighbour and I to share.

She lives next door ….. we share a pot of coffee on the weekends.

 

Beautiful weather …. I am so giddy with excitement for the most PERFECT DAY.

I hope that wherever you are and whatever you are doing that you are surrounded by loving, kind and generous of heart people.

I am so blessed.

SO blessed.

 

Have an awesome Saturday.

Back tomorrow with photos of the ZOO ….. so excited …… I hear that they have paddle boats so hoping to try that out.

 

Special Hello to:  YOU, my friend ….. you rock.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 25th day of October, 2015.

We had the first hard frost last night and it certainly cleared the sky which is a brilliant blue this morning.

The sun is shining so bright.

I just downloaded some photos and I thought I would share them with you.

Our life in photos from late summer and now in fall.

In no apparent order ….. sometimes life is all in the photos.

I hope that you enjoy seeing our life in photos.

We have had an awesome past couple of months.

Flowers blooming, my dear friend from Regina visited, then my cousin from Saskatoon dropped by, Elton and Penny came for some visits, Autumn happened and our yard changed, oh and Steven my son-in-law had a birthday, decorated for Halloween, had a few Steeped Tea parties and life.  Have an awesome Sunday.

Flowers still blooming late in the season
