Thought for the day ….

Good Morning, well actually it is afternoon and welcome to Saturday the 19th day of May, 2018.

Yesterday was a glorious day.

My daughter picked me up and we went to COSTCO and then to CREEKSIDE GREENHOUSE.

Between the two places we picked up dirt and lots and lots of flowers.

I spent 3.5 hours from 4:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. bringing out flower pots, deciding which pots the flowers should go in and then planting.

So great to have an array of colour on the back deck, on front steps and in the front flower bed.

Will post some photos later on.

Love having flowers.

 

Likely some of you may have wondered why I did not write earlier in the day and this is why.

I have always had a fascination with the ROYAL FAMILY.

I have read and watched them at every opportunity available to me.

When Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer on July 29, 1981 – I watched in awe.

I followed them with great interest over the years to come.

I watched and read about their two sons: William and Harry.

It was sad to see their marriage end.

But they are just like us and some things just do not last.

Unfortunately a fact of life.

When Diana was killed in that horrific accident on August 31, 1997; I joined the world in overwhelming sadness.

A life cut way too short.

Over the next decades we watched as her/their two sons grew up and blossomed into fine young men.

She would have been so proud, as I am quite certain that Prince Charles is as well.

I watched when Prince William met and married Catherine (Kate) Middleton  on April 29, 2011.

What a day.

We watched and were so happy when they had their first child, Prince George followed by Princess Charlotte and most recently Prince Louis.

Earlier this morning I watched as Prince Harry married Meghan Markle.

I stayed up all night and watched hours of their life bringing them to this moment in time.

The wedding was not to disappoint.

Prince Harry looked so handsome in his uniform and Meghan in her very simple but ever so elegant off the shoulder white dress with a long train and veil.

The dress was glorious.

Likely this paid homage to his Mother as her train was some 25 feet long.

Poor Alvin was not sure what was going on with me not going upstairs to bed at all.

Now my day starts at 1:30 p.m. which feels odd but it was worth the change in schedule.

Time for breakfast.

Another Royal Wedding on the books.

Prince Harry and Megan Markle married Saturday, May 19, 2018.

Almost thirty-seven years after his parents were married on July 29, 1981.

Oh, I remember that dress.

We are always excited to see the dress and the guests.

 

It has been quite the busy past 24 hours ….. flowers and a Royal Wedding.

Time to come back to reality.

I am grateful for technology and that I could join with everyone in watching the wedding.

 

Special Hello to:  all those folks who stayed up to watch Prince Harry get married.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 15th day of May, 2018.

Another gorgeous day has begun.

The sun is shining and the sky is blue.

We are up.

Are you?

Sorry I could not resist.

A little rhythm to start the day.

I guess not actual a rhythm, but I love this word.

 

This is a short work week for me.

A busy fun weekend is only a few short days away.

I booked Friday and Tuesday off so I will have a five day weekend.

Alvin has his regular Dr. appointment on Friday morning.

The grand-pups will spend the day or so with us on Saturday as the kids are attending a wedding.

Actually my son-in-law is in the wedding party.

Exciting.

Their friends are getting married the same day as the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

I will be up bright and early to watch the wedding.

There is just something about a Royal Wedding.

I love watching them …. reminds me of the Fairy Tales that I read as a child.

The Prince …. the Princess ….. the dress …… happily ever after.

One could dream.

Teddy’s Aunt J will be visiting his house this long weekend so we are going to squeeze in a visit with her.

I have plans to do some spring cleaning in the garage.

Lots to do.

 

Will work extra hard to get my desk all cleared off before I leave so that it does not take my breath away when I return.

Actually things are going well at work.

YAY.

 

Well here we go.

Almost time to leave for work.

Alvin is on his blue blanket until I click on “off” on the computer and he seems to know.

Have a great day.

 

Special Hello to:¬† all those folks who are anxiously awaiting the Royal Wedding ……

Always, Carol & Alvin
