Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 29th day of October, 2017.

Windy overnight and the sky is clearing although to the east the dark blue clouds crouch into the light.

No moisture overnight and that is good.

Each day without at this point is a good thing.

Two days until Halloween and then only a few sleeps after that until we decorate for Christmas.

Yesterday Alvin and I puppy sat our little friend “Teddy.”

He is a bundle of energy and loves to cuddle.

He really did not like to be outside but definitely followed me wherever I went.

We had a great day.

I worked on some of my Christmas crafts throughout the day and played with the pups.

This morning it is coffee with my girls in the hood.

We try to have coffee quite regular but sometimes our lives get crazy and we miss a few weekends.

Each one takes a turn hosting although I think it must be my turn by now.

Seems like it anyway.

Oh now, just had several sneezes in a row.

I have had this “cold” thing for a little bit now but nothing much.

So many people at work and on the bus coughing and sneezing and hacking away.

 

I hope that you all had an awesome Saturday and that your Sunday is amazing.

Remember take some time for yourself.

Play with your pups.

Spend time with your children.

Go for a walk with your spouse.

Remember to tell your loved ones that you love them.

Even when your day is going to heck in a hand basket …. find the good …. find the positive and let it set sail.

Happy Sunday.

 

Special Hello to: my friends new and old all over the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 25th day of October, 2015.

We had the first hard frost last night and it certainly cleared the sky which is a brilliant blue this morning.

The sun is shining so bright.

I just downloaded some photos and I thought I would share them with you.

Our life in photos from late summer and now in fall.

In no apparent order ….. sometimes life is all in the photos.

I hope that you enjoy seeing our life in photos.

We have had an awesome past couple of months.

Flowers blooming, my dear friend from Regina visited, then my cousin from Saskatoon dropped by, Elton and Penny came for some visits, Autumn happened and our yard changed, oh and Steven my son-in-law had a birthday, decorated for Halloween, had a few Steeped Tea parties and life.  Have an awesome Sunday.

Flowers still blooming late in the season

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to the 3rd day of November, 2013.

Wow, it has been snowing since yesterday morning and staying since yesterday afternoon ….

I have shovelled the driveway, deck, and out front.

Our time changed so it was great to have that extra hour this morning.

The snow is perfect for making a snowman ….. wet and heavy.

But not easy for shovelling.

It is so pretty.

Yesterday my daughter came over and helped me put up the Christmas tree.

Over the course of the day and into the evening I decorated most of the house as well.

YAY, Christmas is coming.

When I look back at previous photos of my decorations I notice that I have done the same theme even though it feels different.

OH WELL ….. still looks good.

I have some photos to share from Halloween …..
