Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 4th day of December, 2015.

Another absolutely gorgeous morning here in Edmonton.

This morning at 5:00 a.m. while we were outside, Mr. Alvin was digging in the snow (when he should have been pooping).

I kept saying …… “go poop” and he “kept digging.”

This carried on for about five minutes and although I was enjoying standing on the deck in the warm winter air; I grew concerned.

What in the hay why was digging to the South Pole?

Just after that he stopped digging as he had retrieved the prize (whatever that was?) …

I must admit that I was kind of nervous to find out …..


Then (because it is dark) he stepped into the light and I could see that it was one of his chew treats.

Somewhere along the line he had buried it and forgot about it or something.

So he stood there and chewed on it for a couple of minutes.

Then proudly ran up onto the deck and I said once again “go poop Alvin.”

This time he dropped the treat and when back down to the grass covered with snow area and guess what “he went poop.”

Pooping is a big deal in this family.

Always have to make sure he goes before I leave for work.

Keeping regular is a good thing.

That was our morning about forty minutes ago and now it is almost time to hop into the shower.


I hope that wherever you are …. you have an awesome day.

I hope that your belly is full, that you are safe, warm and that you are loved.

Happy Friday.


Special Hello to: my friend who is now living in Spain …… I hope it all works out and you can move back to Canada …. we miss you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 30th of August, 2015.

One more August day after today …. where did it go?

I had a great August …..

Celebrated many family birthdays and also friends.

Went on a road trip to see my brother.

Signed up to sell “Steeped Tea.”

Coffee dates with my girl friends.

Lots of walks with Mr. Alvin.

Enjoyed the warm summer days of August.

Even won a prize at our staff barbecue.

September is looking to be a fun month.

One of my dear friends from Regina is coming on the long weekend for a visit with me and a school chum who lives in Edmonton, as well.

Two Steeped Tea parties as a Consultant.

Saturday movie and dinner night with three of my friends that I met from Bath & Body Works.

Busy busy …… today lots to do.

Always seems like the weekends zing by.

So happy that Mr. Alvin is feeling better.

He enjoyed our walk last night ….. sniffing about …… visiting with some of his doggie friends and human ones, too.

Enjoying my mug of coffee this quiet Sunday morning …. looking forward to getting laundry done, getting prepared for my upcoming tea parties and odds and ends.

Back to work tomorrow.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Let us be good neighbours to all about us.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to: my friend “P” who is coming next Saturday for a visit ….. I am so excited.

Always, Carol and Alvin
