Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 6th day of November, 2016.

Sky is overcast and it has been lightly raining for almost the last hour.

Time changes this morning so I have an extra hour.

I guess that I had better get changing my clocks before I forget.

Lots to do on this Sunday:

  • finish laundry
  • ┬ácheck on Cinder (her Momma is on vacation),
  • go through our jewellery for the sale next Saturday – take photos, make sure each item is priced and packed up for travel,
  • make a poster for our Combo Christmas Event on December 10th, 2016,
  • do an on-line event for said event,
  • bit of cleaning,
  • clean the walkway to 62nd Avenue and our street as people just are lazy and it is filled with trash once again,
  • walk with Alvin,
  • make some phone calls regarding upcoming tea events,
  • WHEW

 

Yesterday was a beautiful day.

We enjoyed the walk to the Vet in the morning and also later in the afternoon.

It was not an usual November day temperature wise.

Even raining in November is not usual.

Well I guess I had better get this show on the road.

Get dressed and check on the laundry.  Have coffee and check on Miss Cinder.

Special Hello to: You.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 29th day of March, 2015.

WOW, only two days left in March.

This morning the sun is shining ever so brightly.

The sky is clear.

The air has a slight coolness.

Happy Spring.

Just a few more days until April ….

Closer and closer to when I can go and get flowers.

Still over one month away but getting there.

Picking out flowers is probably one of my most favourite things to do.

Over the past few years it has been a spring – early summer ritual for me and my daughter.

The colours and the fragrances are so delightful.

It takes us hours to go through our neighbourhood greenhouse.

We have been going to a privately owned nursery for the past few years.

I believe in supporting our locals as much as possible.

The big box stores all have flowers and lots of times for better pricing.

I still like to support the local nurseries and greenhouses.

Mmm, this summer I will be home week nights and weekends so I will have lots to time to fuss over my flowers.

I think this may be the year that I remove the remaining shrubs in the front bed.

They always go wild on me and I think it might be nice to have some perennials out front.

Needs to be some that like to face north that is the only thing.

It is a huge bed so lots to fill and I will likely needs some dirt to top it up.

But time will tell.

Now I have time to do it all.

Dreaming of sitting on the deck under the umbrella reading a book, admiring my flowers and sipping on a cup of coffee.

Alvin will be laying in the shade or even in the sun for a bit close by.

Oo summer …. YAY.

Well time to go and catch up with my daughter before getting ready to go to the store.

This will be my third last shift.

I hope that you all have a lovely Sunday.

Special Hello to: all those people who love to plant flowers.

Always, Carol and Alvin
