Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 11th day of August, 2018.

Happy Birthday to my brother “J.”

Wishing you a great day my brother.

The sky is overcast with smoke and clouds.

I so wished that it would RAIN.

Rain and put out all of the forest fires.

The smoke has been intense here and I can only imagine what it is like in the areas affected by the fires.

 

WE have been spending a quiet last day or so.

Me and the boys (Alvin and Teddy) have been vegging in front of the fans.

No windows open as it has been so smoky.

Too hot to move around much.

I am also watching Humphrey the Cat and Cinder the Gecko.

Just watching the babies.

Too hot to spend the time that I need writing up my HOLIDAY POST complete with PHOTOS.

But I will.

 

The babies are wanting to go downstairs.

I had a refreshing shower.

I have found that a wet facecloth laid on the pups backs/tummies when they are laying down, helps keep them cool.

Funny how both of them actually just laid with the cloth on them.

 

I am so excited to share my Birthday trip stories and photos (there are lots of photos).

But with the heat and the smoke, I cannot spend much time upstairs on the computer.

But I will.

 

Time to go check on the other babies.

Mine want to go outside.

I sure hope that it rains.

 

The gal that baked my 60th birthday cake from work has been asked to bake me one for my 61st.

The cake is being delivered this morning.

I have invited friends over to share ….. this will be a two or three event.

Whenever people have time to come and have a piece of cake.

 

Getting hot now.

Have to move the fan back downstairs to cool the main floor.

 

Have a great day.

Keep cool and I hope that you are safe.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who read my posts, thank you.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 15th day of May, 2016.

Another sunny morning although it appears to be a bit smoky out there.

Temperature starting to warm up.

 

Today is the seriously putting together things for next weekend’s garage sale.

Cleaned out my closet yesterday and filled a huge rubbermaid container of clothes.

Still have to go through the basement and gather things.

It feels so good to go through and clean out things.

There are always a couple of items that can be tossed but otherwise all things have a long life yet.

 

My daughter and family are coming for a visit today.

We have not seen Elton since his surgery and I am excited to see the little guy.

 

So just a day of posting a garage sale on KIJIJI and carrying things out to the garage.

All things garage sale this day.

Maybe a short trip to the grocery store to break things up and of course our very special visit.

My daughter is bringing things to add to the sale.

Also some of my friends are bringing things over so will be a multi-family event.

Next Friday and Saturday.

 

Well better get this show on the road as time is evaporating as I key these words.

 

Have an awesome Sunday.

Remember always good to clean out closets and such.

You will lighter and better.

Give some away and sell some maybe at a garage sale.

I do both.

 

Special Hello to:  all those holding garage sales, have fun and sell lots.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 13th day of July, 2015.

Hooray overnight and earlier this morning it “RAINED.”

How glorious …. the deck is still wet ….

The grass, flowers, crops and the air desperately needed the rain.

I hope that it rained near Jasper at the fire sites.

The smoke has been cleared for now by the rain and it is breezy.

The sun is shining through the rain clouds and not smoke for the first time in days.

Yesterday was a great Sunday.

The day started with me and Alvin sleeping in and just lying there enjoying each other’s company.

My favourite part of the day ….. just being still …. before the day takes over.

The air was very smoky and the air quality the worst in days so we did not go for a walk.

I did however have coffee with two of my good friends.

Seems like it has been forever since we had coffee and a visit.

It was a great visit ….. lots of laughs and catching up.

The balance of the day spent finishing up the laundry and odds and ends.

I am looking forward to an extra long walk tonight with Mr. Alvin.

“The days pass by quickly so it is always important to take time to do what you love, and to be surrounded by those that you love.”

We wish you a happy Monday.

Take some time for yourself ….. even 5 minutes …… breathe …… scream if it makes you feel better ….. then sit down and close your eyes …. nice.

Special Hello to: friends …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
