Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 27th day of April, 2017.

The sky finally appears to have clear breaks ….. our morning sky has been pretty much been overcast for days now.

Some sunshine would be very welcome.

We have had enough moisture for a bit …… I would love some sunshine.

The weekend holds promise weather wise so that is good.

 

Last night my daughter gave me a ride home from work.

On our way to my house we stopped at COSTCO.

COSTCO was busy …… as always.

I love that ride with my daughter and our conversations.

Any time that I spend with my darling girl is most precious.

Picked up a few things before going home to Mr. Alvin.

He was VERY happy to see us both, for sure.

My TEA ORDER arrived as well …..

We had a busy evening ….. putting away groceries……walk with Alvin and sorting the tea orders.

Most of the tea orders goes to my co-workers and another co-worker graciously is giving me a ride to work as my usual ride is not going in that direction today.

So it all worked out.

Just a few minutes until my ride arrives.

I love the change going my car as opposed to the bus.

Public transportation is good however; nothing like a car ride to work, most especially in the morning.

 

So today I am hoping to have a quiet, super PRODUCTIVE day …..

Tonight is my ENERGY HEALING appointment.

I am looking forward to that ….. great way to end or almost end the work week.

I will be working on Friday.

 

Well I had better get my things together.

I hope that you all have an awesome Thursday.

Another great thing about today it is PAYDAY.

Gotta love a Thursday that is payday.

Alvin is patiently watching me from the comfort of the rug in the hallway.

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….. Sunday…… SKYPE…..YES.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 23rd day of October, 2016.

It is looking like another gorgeous day here in Edmonton.

The sun has been up for awhile and is shining.

Yesterday was so nice …..

Did some community service (picking up trash).

Raked my front yard and my neighbours.

Alvin and I enjoyed a lovely walk.

Did some laundry.

This morning my daughter and one of the grand-puppies Elton are coming for a visit.

I am making pancakes.

Have to make some coffee.

This was a very productive and fun weekend.

I hope that wherever you are whatever you are doing that you are having fun.

No matter what you must have fun.

Gotta run.

Sorry for such a short blog this morning.

Somedays it just turns out that way.

So excited for my daughter to come and Elton, of course.

Alvin is getting excited.

Also have to mail the tea samples that I did for some friends in Regina.

I made 82 samples of tea yesterday and hand wrote the labels.

Happy Sunday.

Take time for you and do something nice for someone else.

Special Hello to: you my friend.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 9th day of April, 2016.

Wow, so windy here in Edmonton, throughout the night and into the morning.

WINDY … WINDY ….. WINDY.

It felt like the roof was being blow off.

Certainly had Mr. Alvin on guard.

My little protector.

Well I managed to give Mr. Alvin a hair cut last night and it only took 1.5 hours followed by a bath.

YAY ….. now he looks great for our company tonight.

I will have to settle for the shower and a bit of make-up, no hair cut for me.

The sky is clouding over so perhaps the forecast for rain is correct.

Time will tell.

I am preparing for a tea party at my house tonight …. some friends from the office and some of her friends, too.

Should be fun.

We have a friend who moved to England and we are going to SKYPE her this evening.

Cannot make it to the tea party so we are taking the tea party to her.

Only thing is it will be in the middle of the night there …..

Time for some coffee to get me started … although I have already started my TO DO LIST.

I hope that you have productive and relaxing day.

Just listening to “Maggie Mag” by Rod Stewart on the iPOD music box thing (too technical for me).

Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: our friends in England ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 6th day of December, 2015.

Today is the Birthday of my dear cousin “J.”

Alvin and I want to wish her the very best day and a wonderful 2016.

 

Yesterday was a productive day for me.

This is what I accomplished and in no apparent order:

  • Alvin had his pedicure, we took a Christmas card and photo of us and had a nice visit with Dr. K and the staff.
  • Made special coffee for my neighbour.
  • Did four loads of laundry.
  • Continued to write up Christmas cards and have only a handful left to write up for the office.
  • Cleaned the bathrooms including the toilets.
  • Swept the floors upstairs and on the main floor.
  • Went to Shoppers Drug Mart and used my Optimum points and scored $85.00 FREE.
  • Went to Save-On for groceries.
  • Changed my land line to our HOLIDAY GREETING.
  • Cleaned the kitchen.
  • Cleaned the pantry.
  • BAKED:  two kinds of COOKIES for a total of 7 dozen and made three batches of FUDGE. (started baking at 7:30 p.m.)
  • BED AT 11:45 p.m.

 

We had a great day.  It was funny at the end of it all – I did not have a sense of accomplishment.  This morning when I wrote down what I had done, it feels great.

Today it is back to baking.

As soon as finish this and have breakfast.

Baking SUGAR COOKIES today …… that is my number one priority.

 

Also it was so strange after going to bed so late …. we woke up at 7:00 this morning …. now of course, Alvin wanted to get up earlier but I coaxed him to stay in bed.

I felt so awake and ready to begin the day and it was 7:00 a.m. – seven hours after we went to bed.

Now I should have just stayed up and by now would have been baking but alas my inner voice WON out and we went back to bed thinking okay I will get up at 8:00 ….. nope whenI woke up it was 8:45.

Joke’s on me.

I am not sure why this happens but it always does.

We should just stay up when we wake up …..

Oh well …. time to get this baking day underway.

Thank you for reading my blog ….

 

Special Hello to: my cousin “J” ….. hope you have a wonderful day cousin …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 15th day of October, 2015.

Last night Alvin and I enjoyed another wonderful walk ….. a bit on the breezy side but warm.

I am so grateful for this great weather.

Mr. Alvin seems to have changed his clock already for the fall as he was ready to get up just after 3:00 a.m. this morning.

I managed to convince him to remain in bed until 4:15 a.m.

Thank goodness we were in bed by 9:15 p.m.

I guess for him he basically eats/sleeps/walks/snuggles so not a big deal for him.

Now his Momma on the other hand ….. time will tell.

I just keep telling myself I am energized everyday ……

We did go and hit the sofa for some zzz’s before I got up at 5:00 a.m.

Perhaps I need to be more firm.

Just is difficult so early in the morning.

Oh well ….. just another day in Paradise.

Right ….

Looking forward to Thursday ……

At this moment in time, I am grateful to be sitting in front of my computer keying these words, expressing myself, with Mr. Alvin laying on the floor just outside the office door, (always close by).

The only sound other than my fingertips hitting the keyboard is the sound of the furnace as it sends warm air throughout the house.

I do love the early morning quiet.

So Happy Thursday.

I wish for us all a productive and wonderful day.

Special Hello to: my friends all over the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of July, 2015.

WOW, another bright, sunny, breezy morning here in Edmonton.

It is a glorious morning.

When I looked out at the front and back yards this morning I realized that I did not mow the grass.

I was so concentrated on the inside yesterday I forgot about the outside.

Perhaps after supper will have time to give it a quick hair cut.

Doesn’t take long ……

The flowers are looking awesome ….

It was so nice to have the rain ….. they do love it fresh from the heavens.

BUT today is a great day because my daughter is coming for a visit.

YAY ….. I love having her over …..

I am not going to tell Mr. Alvin just yet as he will get too excited.

When I tell him he will sit at the window and watch for her car.

He knows her car.

He will jump off the chair.

Run to the back door.

Look out the back door (which has long window).

Usually bark as he wants to go out and greet her.

Then go and wait for her to come in through the garage at the back of our house.

He is too cute.

I am almost too excited to write …. okay I am …. gotta go and get the coffee ready and stuff.

I hope that you all have an awesome day and have had a productive day with time to relax.

Last night was awesome we had a walk and then watched a movie between making some necklaces.

YAY …..

I am babbling ……

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to:  all those Moms and Daughter out there.

Always, Carol and Alvin
