Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning,

It is quiet in the house and in the neighbourhood at this hour.

We had a lovely visit and supper with Teddy and Aunt J.

Supper was in honour of her visits to Mexico.

Soft tacos.

Nothing like tomatoes, onions, lime, avocado, refried beans, cheese and more.

I love the smell of LIME.

One of my favourite things.

Reminder to pick up some limes on my next grocery shop.

I always enjoy our visits and our conversations.

Always learning something new.

I did not know that she became a certified SCUBA DIVER after the age of 50.

How cool is that for a prairie girl!

Not like there are oceans close by for diving.

It was a great story how that came to be.

Quite by accident.

Won a contest with a trip to a tropical climate.

The forecast was rain during the time that she was to be on the island.

She did not wish to sit around all week in her room; so she booked scuba diving lessons and the rest is history.

You never know what can happen.

Nothing planned.

 

Well today is organizing a book party for Steeped Tea.

With Christmas coming …. my customers will be wanting to pick up some items.

Great gift ideas as well.

I love our Hot Chocolate.

MMMMMM

 

I also see lots of shovelling in my future.

We have almost as much as the first time we shovelled.

The third time now ……

 

If the temperature is okay we might head out for a walk.

Likely will be short as they have not plowed the path around the park.

Not everyone gets out and shovels.

So many folks just leave the sidewalks covered in snow all winter long.

I am fortunate most of my neighbours do shovel.

Some may take a bit longer than others but it gets done.

 

I snapped some photos last night at bed and this morning.

Love taking photos of the SNOW.

Especially the fresh stuff.

 

 

Well I guess it is time to hit the shower.

Might be important to “smell good,” just in case someone comes to visit.

Oh, I am kidding.

I always smell good.

Just freshen up.

Don’t you find that a showers gives you energy?

I do.

Then coffee and breakfast

and

then

SHOVELLING.

Exercise.

Perfect order.

 

Happy Sunday.

With kindness and respect I shall live this day and my life.

 

Always, Carol & Al

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 24th day of July, 2017.

Well less than two weeks until my sister arrives.

I spent the weekend getting the house ready and some time in the yard.

I am so blessed that my neighbour and I split the grass mowing and also snow shovelling in the winter.

She is wonderful and I am blessed to have such a great neighbour.

We work together and that is the way it should be.

Alvin loves her and that is a must …..

We had quite the storm last night.

Lots of thunder and lightning and some rain.

Definitely not as bad as it could have been.

The sky is clearing but there is forecast for a rainy Monday so time will tell.

Good to have the moisture and I only hope that British Columbia has received some moisture.

More fires reported to have started ….

Alvin and I had a walk in the morning which was great as there were storm warnings out in the evening.

So here we go another work week ….. just two until vacation.

I am so excited there are no words.

It will be great to have some time off from work.

YAY …… time to visit, relax and have fun.

 

Special Hello to:  All those folks who are able to and are taking vacation.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 6th day of January, 2016.

Today is the birthday of one of my dear friends back in Regina.

Alvin and I would like to take this opportunity to WISH her an awesome Birthday.

Happy Birthday “L.”

 

On the home front, I picked up my second pair of new glasses last night and I love them.

Now I have two new pairs of glasses that I can alternate.

One of them has custom sunglass clips so that I no longer require to carry around a separate pair of sunglasses.

So much easier.

 

Alvin helped me shovel the deck and driveway last night.

I shovelled the snow from the front by myself.

It was starting to get cold or at least with the wind so the back was enough for Mr. Alvin.

We shovelled our neighbours front and back not obviously not her backyard.

Nice to get some extra exercise.

 

Well for some reason I tossed and turned and was feeling nauseated so did not sleep well.

I feel great this morning but unfortunately I am running a tad late.

How does that happen?

 

Fridays are a great day to show some extra kindness to someone.

Pick up a coffee for someone.

Shovel the walks for a elder neighbour.

Take a friend/neighbour’s dog for a walk.

Have a wonderful Friday and thank you for helping out.

 

Special Hello to: my friend in Regina as she celebrates a birthday today.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 21st day of December, 2016.

Only THREE sleeps till Christmas EVE.

Warm weather continues.

OH my …. I have to finish my projects over the next couple of days to be ready in time.

But I will be.

 

With the holiday season “wrapping up” just a reminder to all of us to show the rest of the world “our kindness.”

Randoms acts of kindness.

Perhaps there is a senior in your neighbourhood who has no family or none than can be there over the holidays.

You could invite them to your home for Christmas.

You could send them a Christmas Floral Arrangement.

You could make a Christmas Hamper up to ensure that they have a nice meal and deliver it to them.

You could clean their sidewalks if there is snow.

You could take them a Christmas Card.

You could bake some cookies and take them over.

If you have a family in your neighbourhood that is struggling perhaps due to job loss or health problems.

You along with other neighbours could provide them with food for the Christmas meal.

You could bake some cookies and take them over.

You could make or purchase some gifts for them.

If they do not have a Christmas Tree …. you could pick one up and fill a box with decorations and have it delivered.

Perhaps you could invite them over for Christmas Dinner at your home.

There are so many ways some that cost money and many that do not.

Take the time to spread holiday cheer by random acts of kindness.

If you baked cookies for your family – share them.

Trust me we do not need ALL the cookies.

Perhaps you know of a pet that needs to be rescued, rescue him or her.

I know a family that recently adopted a beautiful rescued doggie.

Help everyone man and animal alike.

Let this Christmas be the one that stands out in history.

For all of the right reasons.

Well time for me to finish getting ready for work ….. it is calling.

I am so excited only today and tomorrow to work this week and our office Family Christmas party on Friday morning and then we are off until January 3, 2017.

I am so looking forward to some time to recharge these “old” batteries.

Okay they are not that old.  LOL

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Special Hello to: You, thank you for making my Christmas and Holiday Season Special.

Always, Carol and Alvin
