Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 30th day of August, 2016.

Can you believe it?

Two days left in August.

I believe that we went through this last month, the month before that and the months before that even.

What happens to the time?

It just seems to always go by at lightning speed.

The evenings for example by the time that I actually got to sit other than the 10 tens to eat, it was bedtime.

Task here and a task there.

Couple of phone calls.

Walking with Alvin.

Conversation with a neighbour on our way home – seems like our neighbourhood has been hit the summer with so much vandalism.

What is wrong with people?

Destroy your own things if you will but leave others alone.

Favour for a friend.

A visitor.

Some time on the computer.

Empty the garbage.

Mow the lawn.

The evening was gone.

Well at least I did get everything done that I had planned and not planned.

The sky is clear and that is nice.

Able to wear a skirt today instead of long pants, socks and shoes.

Nice change.

It has been cool here for the past couple of days.

Well almost time to hit the road.

Bit later as I have an appointment this morning outside of work.

Figured that as I did not sleep that I would just go from home.

Not fun when you cannot sleep.

Waking up each hour.

Dreaming in between.

What a strange night.

I hope that you have an awesome Tuesday.

Special Hello to: Everyone …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 13th day of September, 2015.

It is a great morning here in Edmonton.

The skies were overcast but are now clearing as the morning progresses.

Today is an exciting day for me as this afternoon I will hold my very first tea party as an consultant for Steeped Tea.

My training party was in August and I have my leader, “C” with me so she did all of the work so today it is all me.

I have read over the training information.

I have read all about all the different kinds of teas.

The guest catalogues/order forms and pens are ready to go.

I have placed samples out and some of the other products that we sell.

My tea pots are ready to be used.

The teas have been chosen by the Hostess.

I have placed on the table some tea plates, tea cups and saucers and glasses.

In case you have not guessed I will “host” the party as far as the venue and dishes go and the hostess will bring over a treat for the guests. ┬áNice and breezy easy for the hostess.

The house is pretty much clean.

Just the last minute sweep/vacuum the floor …. quick dust ….

I am excited and perhaps a little bit nervous.

There is so much information and I just want to do a great job.

Well I am going to enjoy my cup of coffee and get ready.

I am just going to wear a skirt and top so I will be comfortable getting ready now.

The only component I am a bit concerned about is Mr. Alvin ….

He knows a couple of the people so he will definitely be excited.

I did have a chat with him because I know that he will be wanting to visit and see everyone.

Hopefully he will bring it down a notch …. just friendly not FRIENDLY.

Oh, my boy.

Well I had better go.

I have a couple of things to do of course even though there are almost four hours until start time.

Wish me luck.

I know it will be a great tea parTEA.

Have a great Sunday everyone.

I will let you know how it goes.

Special Hello to: my Daughter who helps her Momma so much ….. thank you for the help with my Steeped Tea website.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 30th and last day of April, 2014.

Whoa where did April go?

It was an interesting April of 2014, I shall say.

We are grateful that here in Edmonton are skies are bright and blue as the sun rises in the east.

We hope that the snow that has fallen to the east melts quickly and that our neighbours in Saskatchewan and eastward have our weather soon.

Thank you.

Mr. Alvin came in to take a look and sniff at me as this morning I decided to wear a “skirt.”

This is not an usually sight in my house.

In fact, this is the first bare legs I have had since last summer.

Feels good to not have material covering my skin although my skirt is longer.

I am so happy is we are just about to touch “summer.”

Although you know that spring is my favourite season; summer and fall come in a close second.

I also do not mind winter.

I guess I am a all season lover.

Lover of all seasons.

You always have to take it all to appreciate the high points.

That is life.

So on this last day of April – let us be grateful that:

– we are alive

– we have food in the fridge

– we are surrounded by family and friends

– we are surrounded by love and laughter

– we have blessings in all shapes and sizes

– we can hear the clock ticking

– we can taste that good food in the fridge

– we can smell the fresh air

– we can see the bright blue sky and that perfect sunrise

– we can walk to the mailbox

– we can buy that cup of coffee on the way to work

– we can talk and communicate

– we have each other.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those amazing human beings that read my blog and every blog ….. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
