It is the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to the fourth day of our FREEZING COLD temperatures.

The temperatures started to drop this past Friday and are going to get even colder this week.

Please, please keep your pets indoors.

If you have a pup that needs to walk, make sure that they have boots and a coat on them.

Keep them warm.

The pads on their paws WILL freeze, they are no different than our hands.

If you see a dog out in a backyard for more than a couple of minutes call the authorities.

Make sure that everyone in the household that has to go outside is dressed warmly and in multiple layers.

Layers are what keeps you warm in these temperatures.

 

Yesterday I went for groceries in the afternoon with Teddy’s Mom.

Teddy came for a visit.

I am proud to say that I finally remembered to take all my reusable mesh bags with me to the grocery store.

And used them, too.

Finally ….. I am posting on social media “tips to reduce plastic consumption.”

So I had better walk the talk …..

Teddy ended up staying after I came home until after supper.

It was nice for the boys to have company.

Teddy does have his little sister but there is nothing like your best friend for company.

 

Well I had better get going as on poop patrol again.

If I leave it and it snows, then I will be playing detective trying to locate the brown parcels.

Life in the fast lane.

Better to pick up now when it is frozen than in the spring when it melts.

No one wants that …..

 

Have an awesome day.

Today is an awesome day as it is the 55th birthday of my youngest brother.

Happy Birthday …. have a great day and keep warm and stay safe.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 31st and last day of July, 2014.

It has been a great month and I look forward to this day and all the days of August.

I love ¬†August …… mainly because of my birthday??

No.

I love August because all of the flowers are at their height of beauty and fragrance.

The gardens and flower pots just are full of amazing colours.

The gardens are starting to yield lots of yummy produce.

The evenings are generally cooler and more comfortable than July.

The days are still warm and wonderful.

Sometimes I take vacation which is the case now.

After 12:30 today I am on vacation from my day job until August 11th, 2014.

I am so happy and so need some time away to relax, get my “our” house sorted out and have some fun.

To me August is summer.

On this last day the sky is overcast and it is 18 degrees celsius at this time.

Forecasted high 24 ( 29 with humidity).

Possible thunderstorm this evening.

We managed to get almost all of the cleaning done last night ……

Just have to mop the floors ….. (main floor).

Happy Thursday everyone.

I hope that you can take a few days off during the month of August to enjoy what nature has to offer.

Even though I am going to stay at home for my vacation – I am looking forward to long walks (playing catch up) with Mr. Alvin and taking the time to enjoy the yard and my flowers.

Coffee on the deck, anyone?

I love being at home ….

Special Hello to: all those LEOS out there …….

Always, Carol and Alvin
