Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 24th day of November, 2013.

WOW, it is a glorious morning.

The sun is up and shining brightly in a beautiful blue sky.

My favourite sky.

It is warm outside, too.  Thank goodness.

I am just getting ready to go to work at the store.

I am thinking it will be busy today unless everyone is home watching the Saskatchewan Riders play in the Grey Cup at home in Regina.

They are going to win, I can feel it in my bones.


So on this bright happy Sunday ….. my thoughts are full of joy and happiness.

I am going to spread that joy to every person I meet today.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to: all those RIDER FANS – you ROCK.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 23rd of November, 2013.

Up at 5:00 this Saturday morning as I am watching my grand-puppies for a sleep-over.

Busy day for me, so thought would get an early start as we can always have a nap later.

I want to get laundry started, dish washer unloaded, my blog written of course, have breakfast before they arrive.

Then at 10:00 two of my girl friends are coming over for our “First Annual CHRISTMAS BAKING EXCHANGE” …..

So I want to do the last minute touches on the house and put on coffee and get the treats out.

After that, the plan is to SKYPE my sister …..

This afternoon if the weather permits I would like to take the puppies for a little walk …..

Well time to go and get started on that to do list.

I hope that you are having a great day thus far.

May it blossom and grow and be SPECTACULAR.

Special Hello to: my cousin from Saskatoon ….. I hope that the Riders win the Cup.


Always, Carol and Alvin
