Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 4th day of November, 2018.

So funny how fast time goes.

I was up in the office and speaking to a friend on the phone and realized that I had not flipped the calendar in this room.

Flipping to already the 4th day of the new month.

WOW.

Last night and early this morning it rained.

Still some snow on the deck as I did not shovel it all.

OH well.

I did however finish the decorating yesterday.

I have one more big project left to do and that is to rearrange / clean out this room, my office.

All of my plants had to be moved upstairs …. all four of them.

I do not like a room that is too crowded with things so time to rearrange.

But as I have a long weekend coming up I may leave until then.

I took photos of the newly decorated main floor.

Did anyone spot the one lone Halloween / fall item that photo bombed Christmas?

It has been since removed.

I also found another strand of lights and decided it would be best served on the mantel with that collection of snowmen and trees.

It looked so beautiful when I turned the lights on and these photos do not accurately show that.

I do have one thing that drives me crazy and that is the cords from the television.

I had them fixed with my old television and when I got the new one, years ago now I did not have it redone.

So I will locate some plastic zip ties and get them all into one bunch ….. shortly here.

I realized that even though I do this once a year most of the decorations end up in close to the same spot.

Well time to go and change the clocks.

We are officially ONE HOUR BEHIND.

YAY  or NAY, I do not know.

Just have to remember that when I call my sister and brother and friends they are ahead of us.

HAVE AN AWESOME DAY.

I see a bath on the horizon for Mr. Alvin.

His BFF arrives on Tuesday night and Alvin needs to be his best self …..

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….. we girls had a great night.

Always, Carol & Alvin

COUNTDOWN: 60 Days to 60

Today is Friday, August 4rd, 2017 and it is the 6th day until my 60th Birthday.

It is hard to concentrate on anything else as my dear little sister arrives tonight.

She is flying in from Regina, Saskatchewan.

So looking forward to seeing with her and catching up in person.

 

Well I think over the past 50 plus days we have covered almost aspects of my life, thoughts, dreams and aspirations.

I have an idea for the day of my birthday for this post which will require some additional time.

 

One of my most favourite times of year is Christmas.

I love the colours, the music, the festive ambiance, decorating the tree and my house and BAKING.

I love sharing said baking with family and friends.

Here are some of my decorations:

These tiny Angels were made by my Daughter and my Mom shortly before she passed away.

Did I mention that I love to wrap gifts.

Christmas at my house

Wrapped gifts …. so beautiful….

One of my most favourite tree ornaments

 

Inside and Outside.

Maybe because it has been warm that I am really thinking about Christmas.

 

Just a few of my favourite time of year.

 

Have a wonderful Friday….

Always, Carol

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to the 3rd day of November, 2013.

Wow, it has been snowing since yesterday morning and staying since yesterday afternoon ….

I have shovelled the driveway, deck, and out front.

Our time changed so it was great to have that extra hour this morning.

The snow is perfect for making a snowman ….. wet and heavy.

But not easy for shovelling.

It is so pretty.

Yesterday my daughter came over and helped me put up the Christmas tree.

Over the course of the day and into the evening I decorated most of the house as well.

YAY, Christmas is coming.

When I look back at previous photos of my decorations I notice that I have done the same theme even though it feels different.

OH WELL ….. still looks good.

I have some photos to share from Halloween …..
