Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 19th day of November, 2016.

Sky is overcast at just after 8:00 a.m. and there is a light dusting of snow covering the ground.

Busy day ahead for me and Alvin.

Some company, laundry to do (always), cleaning (always), preparing for a TEA PARTY tomorrow at one of my neighbours and

then whatever else comes our way.

Yesterday I was so excited I took a small amount of vacation time and went to West Edmonton Mall from Work.

I wanted to check out the big sale at SEARS with hopes to buy some, wait for it, wait for it ….. new …. new

UNDERWEAR.

Yes, I was so excited to buy some new underwear.

It is a big deal as it is one thing that is super expensive and we always wait until what we have is almost falling apart.

I received a gift card from my neighbour for looking after her gecko, Cinder while she was away.

So I am proud to say that I spent the card and got some new underwear.

Now I have to part with the old stuff (some I was not able to replace it all).

Perhaps there will be a lotto win tonight so that I can replace every old piece.

Would that not be the best shopping trip ….. to buy all that…. mmm, a girl can DREAM.

Well hopefully I have made you giggle, laugh or just smile at this point.

If that is the case my job is done for today.

Take some time and smile.

Think of all of the people that you love and care for and for all of your great memories.

No matter where you are in your life or where you have been (trust me I know); you can always find good memories.

For some people they may be in short supply or for others they may be living a dream life, full of awesomeness.

No matter …… at some point there was something that was great/good.

I hope that you have a great day.

You are so special.

You are wonderful.

Take care.

Special Hello to: all those folks who read my blog, I so appreciate your time.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 20th day of June, 2016.

WOW,  ten days remain in June of 2016.

It is a beautiful morning here in Edmonton, sun shining bright in the blue sky.

Alvin is tired as we had a busy weekend.

He was up at 4:30 but was happy to lay down on the sofa with me after he ate his breakfast and went outside.

It is funny because he always stays in the bathroom for a few minutes when I am in the shower and then goes and lays down on the bed.

Just checking on me.

If I drop something in the shower he is quick to respond by jumping off the bed to come and check on me.

My faithful buddy.

I do wish however that he would jump onto the ottoman at the foot of the bed.

He will use it to jump up but not down.

Thank goodness for thick plush rugs …. to break the fall ….. a bit easier on his joints.

If he would wait for me and I could lift him down that would be great but to catch him is near impossible.

Yesterday my daughter and grand-puppy Elton came for a visit.

I made pancakes and we had a visit before tackling a trip to Costco.

I will say one older couple did say excuse me ….. at least someone has manners.

It would seem that people are just in their own little world and anything else they do not see or it does not matter.

Just do their thing and that is all that matters.

What a brutally unkind society we are turning into ….

Just imagine if everyone were kind and had manners and CARED what a wonderful world this would be.

Oh well, at least there are some and that is a good thing.

Well here it is once again time to get this show on the road.

I seem to say that a lot.

Oh and last night on our walk we happened to see our friend “P” out in her garden.

She was putting in some last minute flowers that her daughter have given her ….

I told her of the great deal that I received at Costco.

It was the last day and I got 18 Impatiens plants for $2.98 and 3 Geraniums for $2.98 (less than $6.00 for 21 plants).

I plants them yesterday afternoon.

My friend also gave me some more flowers for my new flower bed by the sidewalk.

How blessed am I?

So happy to have flowers on my front steps and out front.

Well gotta go ….

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: my friends who are leaving on an Alaskan Cruise this Wednesday, how wonderful.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 15th day of June of 2014.

WOW …. we are at the halfway point.

So excited I got so much accomplished this weekend between yesterday and this morning.

I am now enjoying a cup of coffee and writing (two of my favourite things).

It feels to so good to get things done before I go to work.

Alvin and I enjoyed a fantastic walk by our lake and on the way home bumped into one of my neighbours out working in her garden.

She has the most gorgeous garden and lawn …. so beautiful.

We had a great visit and then home ……

Mr. Alvin is pooped …… nothing like exercise to start your day.

I work at the store as per usual and it is the end of the first week of Semi-Annual Sale.

Lots of people looking for bargains.

So always interesting.

There is the most glorious cool breeze blowing this morning making walking and being outside …. heavenly.

I feel so energized and I am sure that the walk had everything to do with it.

Well on this glorious Sunday morning I hope this finds you energized and happy.

I am happy …. it was the best weekend.

Special Hello to:  YOU.

Always, Carol and Alvin
