Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

It is Sunday ….

Overcast and raining.

My nephew leaves later this afternoon and my sister arrived about 4:00 p.m. yesterday afternoon.

We have been enjoying our time together.

This is what my nephew and I did yesterday around noon.

Bright sunny day ….

The pergola came down.

At the end near the back door it was beginning to split and I was afraid it would come crashing down.

It was very poorly constructed as we found out once we decided to take it down.

The deck looks bigger and is so open.

There are the four corner posts remaining and I will remove them once I have a proper saw but for now they are solid.

 

We had pizza for supper …. nice and easy.

 

Well today is our family get together and belated birthday celebration for me.

So time to get cooking.

I am making potato salad and chicken (deep fried, chicken breast) and some vegetables and that cake.

That beautiful carrot cake.

 

Also I am going on a road trip with my sister and daughter leaving tomorrow morning.

My sister and I will take Alvin to my daughter’s where we will change vehicles.

Alvin will stay with my son-in-law while we are away.

So excited for our second annual girls road trip.

 

While I am away …. I will not be writing this blog.

So will have lots of stories and photos to share upon my return.

Have a great next few days.

 

 

 

Travelling along life’s path with kindness and respect, that is how I roll.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 20th day of July, 2018.

A bit cooler outside this morning and some beautiful cloud formations.

We had two walks yesterday which was great.

So grateful that it was cooler in the house last night.

Cooler weekend on the way which will be nice as my daughter and grand-pups are coming for a sleepover (actually two nights).

So excited.

 

I have some questions and I will provide my answers, what are yours?

  1.  Favourite place to visit in the world – my country, Canada and I have another New York City, USA.
  2.  Favourite season – Fall, love the colours of the trees and the smell in the air
  3. Favourite food to eat – that is way too hard.  I am a foodie and love most things but if I had to narrow it down:  chocolate cake and potato salad (not together)
  4. Favourite time of day – sunrise and sunset
  5. Favourite companion – Alvin (my four-legged guy)
  6. Favourite song – Don’t Stop Believin’ – by Journey
  7. Favourite colour – periwinkle blue, purple, but most of all “Kelly GREEN”
  8. Favourite thing to do – anything creative, walk or have coffee with my girl friends and my daughter and working in my flower garden.
  9. Do you like surprises? – only the good ones
  10. Are you a negative or positive person? – definitely more on the positive side, although I have my moments
  11. Are you on-time or late in general? – definitely on-time but usually early.
  12. One thing that ticks you off the most? – people that have total disregard for animals, people and the environment.

Well I guess that is it for now.  Almost time to leave for work.

Have an awesome Friday.

 

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 27th day of September, 2016.

Yesterday was this amazing fall/autumn day.

Sun shone, not too hot and no wind.

Another enjoyable walk with me Alvin.

Tonight we are hosting my Son-in-law’s birthday supper.

So last night we, I mean I iced his birthday cake.

Boiled the eggs and potatoes for a potato salad.

Completed other tasks to prepare for tonight.

I am able to leave work one hour early so that will give me the extra time to get things done after arriving home.

Elton is spending the day with Alvin.

They should be here soon.

The wind is blowing this morning – too good to last.

We seem to have a lot of wind.

Not a good thing for all of those people who placed their small cardboard boxes loosely out for pickup.

I will never understand why people do not think ahead.

So later today and tomorrow as some of us are out and about we will be picking up other’s garbage that they did not secure.

I guess this will always be a pet peeve of mine.

Perhaps I need to change the script in my head.

Think that they will always secure the garbage and our neighbour is always clean.

There we go.

Well it is almost time to leave – the kids are picking me up as they are dropping Sir Elton off to spend the day with Alvin.

So I get to ride in a car to work this morning.

YAY for me.

Somedays people are annoying on the bus so it is nice to have a ride.

Maybe I am annoying as well, who knows.

Happy Tuesday.

Looking forward to chocolate cake tonight with my family.

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: all those folks celebrating something today.

Always, Carol and Alvin
