Thought for the day…..

Good Morning …… mmm Tuesday, December 27th, 2011 …… on Christmas Eve morning I awoke with a bad cold …… and it is still with me but I am now feeling more myself.  Unfortunately I missed the annual Christmas Eve get together at Dan & Janelle’s home.  Instead I stayed at home curled up on the sofa with Alvin, Elton and Penny.  Amanda and Steven arrived about 10:30 p.m. and that’s when we opened our gifts.  The puppies were so excited.  This year Sir Elton was the one that had all the energy, and was into everything.  This is quite the change from his normal self.  It was cute to watch him in action.  Meanwhile our girl Penny was quiet, and Alvin was somewhere in between.  We had a fun couple of hours before retreating to bed.  My most favourite gift was a photo book that Amanda had done of Alvin’s life/time with me (us) thus far.  OMG, it was so emotional.  I love being surrounded in my own home by my family: Amanda, Steven, Elton, Penny and Alvin.

Christmas Day was fun in between sneezing and blowing my nose.  I know gross.   But I managed to get everything ready, and we had a grand time.  We also had a friend of Steven and Amanda, join us …. that is always great fun.  We played one of the trivia pursuit board games before supper for a bit.  We tried Tofu-Turkey (cannot remember the spelling) which was actually quite good.  It is quite funny that as a vegetarian we still try to “eat meat.”   Then mostly ate and visited which is perfect.

Yesterday on Boxing Day …… me and Alvin laid on the sofa and in between sleeping we watched four Star Trek movies.  Earlier in the day … Amanda came over to have coffee, pick up their car and take “food” and their gifts etc.  home.

So I hope that you had a great Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

While I am feeling almost human I am going to run and put a load of laundry on …….gotta go … feel those darn sneezes coming on…… oh … no…. !!

Have a great day.

Special Hello:  TO YOU and YOU AND YOU…….

Always, Carol
