Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 17th day of August, 2015.

Wow another August Monday morning to enjoy.

The sun is coming up a bit later each morning …. shorter days.

The air is cool as summer slowly turns into fall.

I love late summer and fall.

Most especially fall.

After last week’s blast of hot hot air it is a good 10 degrees cooler during the day.

Much easier at night for people to sleep as it gets quite cool during the night.

The temperature in the house was 68 degrees F, this morning.

Well Alvin and I had an unusual Sunday as my neighbour in the other half of our duplex held a “front lawn sale” ….

We ended up out front from basically 9:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Few inside breaks as it was kind of cool to be just sitting …..

It was relaxing and fun.

I found some items that I could use so helped with her sales.

Alvin enjoyed all the folks who stopped by.

I had him on a leash and at some points sitting on my lap to help keep me warm.

Ended up with a winter vest on and thankfully I had put on socks (yup socks with sandals).

We even weeded our front flower beds in between customers.

Leftovers of peach salsa and tortilla chips for lunch and a couple pots of hot coffee.

Well time to get going to the office.

I hope that you all had some time to yourself and enjoyed your weekend.

If you were working I hope that you did take some “me” time.

Happy Monday.

Special Hello to: yes, sister …. so far this tea venture has been great …. am loving it. ┬áLots to learn.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Friday morning and today is already for several hours ….. January 18th, 2013….

I lazed around on the sofa after Mr. Alvin insisted on getting up at 4:30 a.m. ……

He had to go out so what do you do?

As I sit here at my computer at just after 10:00 a.m. and see the skies clearing and with a peek of sunshine coming through, I am very happy.

With winter and the shorter days …. we get up in the dark, go to work in the dark and come home in the dark ….. so no time to enjoy any sunshine that comes our way.

I must start going out for short walks on my breaks at work.

I will admit that without sunshine, I am low on energy.

It takes me awhile to get the momentum going ……

Once it does …. I am ready to go…….

Just on my way to have a shower and do a few small household chores before going to enjoy coffee with one of my friends who lives in the neighbourhood.

I hope that you all have an amazing day and have energy to burn, so to speak…..

With luck the sun is shining wherever you are and the birds are singing and life is treating you “right”…..

Have an awesome day and weekend.

Oh, I am so excited …. Amanda and I are going to make jewellery tomorrow ….. it has been awhile for me.

We just received some special orders from one of our faraway friends….

Take Care.

Special Hello to: all our “Dear Stella Jewellery” friends ……. we are grateful for your support.


Always, Carol and Alvin
