Living … One day at a time.

Wow, welcome to Monday and the actual calendar date of Thanksgiving.

We celebrate yesterday with our family.

The wind is blowing and the sky is grey.

Happy Thanksgiving.

 

I was chatting with my friend G yesterday morning.

Catching up.

She mentioned about going to COSTCO, so I asked her to keep any eye out for casual, around the house, sweatpants.

G said that she would.

She texted me from COSTCO as she found sweatpants for $14.99.

G picked me up two pair one charcoal grey and one black.

I must say they are the most comfortable pants that I have had in a long time.

Wished I could wear them to work.

Will be great for walking with Alvin.

My other pants will be tossed with a small ceremony.

They served me well.

So appreciated them but the holes can no longer be sewn, time for them to go.

These dear old pants are over 10 years old.

Wore them everyday.

YAY, thank you my friend for the new pants.

 

 

My four charges from yesterday.

The kids had to make a trip to COSTCO so dropped pups off.

Miss Aspen, Baby Milo, Master Teddy and Rockstar Alvin

How I managed to get them all looking to the camera was an achievement.

Oh my babies.

Thanksgiving

I forgot to take a photo when the food was served but the buns that my friend made were under the tee towel.

The turkey platter was filled with desserts.

One would think we were feeding twenty people, nope just three of us.

I provided my friend’s homemade apple pie and I bought a pumpkin pie (cut into wedges).

The kids brought some cake that one of their friends had made.

So we were surrounded by loving hands.

We had a great time.

Well we went to bed late and got up at 5:00 and then back to the sofa for a few hours.

So it is now after 9:00 a.m. ……

Guess it will be a quiet day.

I might have to work on the photos.

Just noticed that the total of photos I have on the computer is now over 33,000 and almost 1,000 videos.

ARGH.

OR may be a project during Christmas holidays.

 

I hope that you all have an awesome day.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Sure is great to wake up to SUNNY SKIES.

Quite the change from the past few days …. going on a week.

There is rain in our future according to the weather channel.

Only time will tell.

Well folks guess what?

When I signed into iPhoto on the computer to download the photos that I took this morning; lo and behold there were the photos from Thursday.

The ones that I wanted to show you yesterday morning.

The first ones are of the plant pots outside my work office.

The plant pots are gigantic.

Possibly the largest ones that I have ever seen.

I love the flowers and am going to track down the names.

Followed by photos from Friday morning in the rain.

This morning Sunshine ……

Well Mr. Alvin has just thrown up and I got things cleaned up and managed to get him into the office where the floor is laminate and easier to clean.

Poor boy.

Likely due in part to something he ate last night and because he hasn’t eaten breakfast yet.

His food bowl is out but he doesn’t like to eat before me.

Not sure why.

He appears to be okay now.

Alvin has his regular Vet appointment in just over one hour.

So time to get this show on the road.

COFFEE and food for the boy.

 

So happy to see the bright blue sky this morning.

The grass and plants are a brilliant green and the TREES.

 

Last night after work my daughter and I picked up a shower gift for one of her friends followed by a trip to IKEA.

I picked up a few smaller plant pots, couple of clips to hang things with and some serviettes.

The shower gift was handmade by one of the gals at the ART SHOW last weekend.

Home a bit later but my neighbour watched over Mr. Alvin.

We had time to walk before another patch of rain set in.

 

I wish you a great Saturday.

Catch you tomorrow.

 

Remember to be kind and respectful.

First to yourself and then to others.

If you are good to yourself it is shown to others.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Argh, I cannot remember or find my voicemail password!!
