Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 3rd day of August, 2018.

Well it is a much cooler morning and it is RAINING.

Our house is cooler and more comfortable.

No need to run fans or have windows open.

Nice break from the heat.

 

Last night / late afternoon, my sister, Alvin and I went for a nice walk.

It was raining just slightly when we started our walk.

But it was so refreshing.

 

My sister and I are getting ready as at some point we are going to West Edmonton Mall with her grandson/my great nephew to do some shopping.

He would like to look around as he has not been there lately.

Our ride will arrive sometime during the next hour or so.

 

Last night I made a rhubarb crisp from the rhubarb that one of my coworkers gave me.

OMG, so good.

Nothing like fresh from the garden.

 

Well this will be short.

Life is good.

Keeping busy with company and trying to keep cool (loving it today).

 

Happy Vacation.

 

I hope that you all have a great day.

Special Hello to: my friends near and far.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 4th day of July, 2017.

Bright sunny morning …. beautiful day.

Happy 4th of July to our neighbours in the United States.

 

We, me and Alvin, had a wonderful extra long weekend.

Lots of down time, me time, our time, work time, work time, relaxing time ……

Good weather and had great company.

Even a bit of shopping (do groceries count?)

Made a RHUBARB crisp with the rhubarb my friend “T” gave me.

OMG so good.

 

So on this day ….. Tuesday …… LISTEN and BE KIND.

Often times, we do not listen to ourselves or to others.

So much rides on this two things.

 

Special Hello t0:  my sister ….. getting closer.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 2nd day of July, 2017.

Bright sunny morning.

Appears that all Canada Day Celebrations went well.

I am grateful that my daughter is coming to visit us today.

Yesterday was hot and humid.

We did have a storm earlier but the evening turned out to be sunny.

Summer weather, right.

 

I managed to give Mr. Alvin a hair cut and bath.

Did some house work, laundry and mowed some grass.

Watched some of the Canada 150 Celebrations.

 

Well I have to get this show once again on the road.

Yesterday I did not get the rhubarb crisp baked as it was hot and I did not get to it early enough.

Even baking with air conditioning …..

So want to get it done this morning (promised my daughter).

Not only that …. the rhubarb will soften and better when it is firm.

 

Have a great Sunday everyone.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. not long now until you visit.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 29th day of June, 2014.

Wow, two days left in June ……

Then Canada Day ……

It has been a very rewarding weekend thus far.

Considering I spent 3.5 days last week with dental issues, I am happy to say all is well.

Me and Alvin moved our bed from the master bedroom to the office.

My daughter, son-in-law and grand-puppies are moving in with us in July.

They are building a new house and their current home has sold.

We are very excited.

I gladly, gave up the master bedroom to have them move in with us.

It will be wonderful having someone other than Alvin to talk to ….. although he is great company …. not much of a “talker.”

Anyway, we have our bed, night stand and computer …… don’t need more than that.

I feel like a little kid ….. so excited to have a “new room.”  ……

I want to hang up some pictures etc on the walls.

I moved all of my book cases and books and odds and ends to the guest bedroom …..

It looks actually quite nice and I was pleasantly surprised that they all fit and it looks great.

I will share photos later ….. just getting ready to go to work at the store.

I have decided to have a garage sale in a couple of weeks.

Give and sell things.

I have so much and I feel like downsizing ……

Mr. Alvin seems to have settled in as he is standing up on his hind legs looking out the window.  (on the bed which is close to the window).

Last night he wasn’t sure …..

When we went to bed …. he went into the master first and then when I said “to bed” ….. he seemed to understand.

We are happy ….. I am truly so excited to have them with us.

I am grateful that I have the room/space for them to live with us.

How very cool.

They are the best kids and so good to me and Alvin ……

Canada Day, I am working at the store which is cool ….. so anyone shopping I can “wish them a Happy Canada Day.”

It is overcast and windy at the moment.

Mr. Sun is trying to come out from behind the clouds.

I think Alvin really like the new bedroom ……. some new views for him to look at …..

Last night I baked a rhubarb (from my friend) and apple (from my brother) crisp and also tried a new recipe from my friend, Val – a rhubarb (threw in a few apples) upside down cake.

Between the moving upstairs, some cleaning and laundry ….. baking down at 11:00 p.m.

Nothing like baking and then going to bed ….. the house smells amazing.

Well I hope you all have a great Sunday.

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing – play and work safe.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello: to my cousin “J” …… thank you.  I am feeling much better now that I got my “mouth” tended to and also getting the bed and stuff moved.  Haven’t tasted the crisp but I added brown sugar …. smells amazing.

Always, Carol and Alvin
