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!!

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to FRIDAY the 17th day of June, 2016.

I capitalized Friday because it is the weekend and I am ready for it.

The sky is overcast with rain clouds.

It has been raining overnight as everything is wet.

Alvin was wet when he came in from his morning constitutional ….

Another cool day …

We appreciate the moisture but are ready for some more sunshine.

I believe that the forecast is for sunny skies this weekend.

One thing I will tell you is that I am so happy that at the last moment I decided to mow the front and back lawns.

It looks so happy now with a haircut and now a shower.

I also stopped at West Edmonton Mall on my way home from work last night.

I had not done that in months.

It was busy as usual and it reminded me that I do not like crowds so much.

Picked up the “poop bags” for Alvin although I do not think that he really appreciated that as a present from my shopping trip.

Who would think that the Dollarama store had the longest lines.

I also had to stop at the store that being Bath & Body Works …. Semi Annual Sale.

Picked up a few things …. not too much …..

Felted like I had had a special treat.

While there I also went to Old Navy – just to see.

One of the young people that used to work at the GAP across from Bath & Body Works now works at Old Navy and even remembered me.

I have not worked in the mall for over a year.

Nice young guy.

Anyway it was good to try on a few things and then just walk away.

So it was a busy evening.

Now almost the weekend and the grass is cut so one thing off the TO DO LIST, yay.

A head start.

Well almost time to get this show on the road once again.

Seems like I was just catching the bus to work.

Now it is again.

I hope that you have a great Friday and weekend.

Special Hello to: all those people who take a bit of time for themselves – well done.

Always, Carol and Alvin.
