Living … One day at a time.

Good Sunday Morning,

We were outside in the backyard and I was doing the thing.

In my pj’s and my winter coat.

Very cute.

The air felt relatively warm.

Not certain what the temperature is.

 

One of my friend’s is going to give me a ride to PETSMART today so that I can pick up the clipper blade (so looks like Alvin’s haircut will be next Monday).

Just in time for Christmas.

Perfection.

I will also pick up the remaining gifts for the pups and Humphrey.

Couple little treats for stockings and done.

Wrap the fur baby gifts and done.

 

Yesterday afternoon we had company which was so nice.

Had a great visit and even scored a couple of games of JENGA.

We each won one game.

After our company left – we headed out for a walk.

It was warmer than I thought.

 

Later in the afternoon, I delivered cookies to some of my friends in the neighbourhood.

Only two more cards and cookies to deliver.

Cookies for work, Cookies for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and DONE.

 

Nice to be able to enjoy the time instead of running around dazed and confused.

 

I popped in another load of laundry.

I have a few things to do other than the trip to PETSMART and grocery store.

One being to make a big pot of CHILI for supper and for suppers this week.

It is filling and goes a long way.

Then no cooking and you can change it up.

Put chili over roasted potatoes or over a bun.

I am going to call my sister today in between the shopping trip.

Oh, another light bulb burned out.

I hope that I have another new one.

 

Oh, how exciting we checked the mail yesterday on our way home from the walk and had received “TWO CHRISTMAS CARDS.”

So happy to have received them.

Cards and letters, nothing better.

 

Alvin is laying on an old quilt (his blanket is in the wash) resting.

I was thinking earlier that perhaps I should make a collage with all of my old Christmas cards.

A tribute to family and friends.

Then every Christmas it would be part of the decorations.

It would have to be huge but it would be beautiful.

Perhaps I will.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you all have a wonderful Sunday.

Time to relax.

Remember …. to breathe.

Always take time for you.

Even if it is 5-10 minutes here and there.

Even if it is in the bathroom with the door locked to keep the world out.

No phone allowed.

No children or spouses allowed.

No pets allowed.

Just you.

Wonderful you.

You are important.

To your children, spouse and pets.

So be good to you.

 

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 24th day of April, 2014.

YAY, it is Thursday.

How are you this fine morning?

I can see breaks in the somewhat cloudy sky.

It rained here solid for more than 24 hours.

I would say that the ground has been moisturized.

Just like applying a good heavy cream to your face and going to bed.

Mr. Alvin and I decided not to walk in the rain last night and instead just curled up on the sofa and watched of the shows that I record.

Okay, I did do some housework ….. it is hard not to …. just lay around …..

Anyway, it was a glorious evening ….. I am very grateful for it.

What do you do in the evenings?

After supper and clean-up is done.

Perhaps you have children and there is homework and preparation for the next day.

Perhaps you have a spouse and you just spend some time together catching up on the day’s events.

Perhaps you are alone like me with a dog ….. most nights it is a walk together followed by a cup of tea (not for Mr. Alvin, giggling).

Perhaps you are surrounded by family and you might take a few minutes to relax …. ” me time.”

Whatever you may be doing or whomever you might be with ….. just enjoy.

Having a nice evening is preparation for a good night’s sleep and a great tomorrow.

So remember have a great evening ……

I hope that you always remember to make each day the best it can be.

Keep your focus on the great things in your life.

You always get what you give out.

Good thoughts ….. more good thoughts.

You know what I mean.

Have a great day my friends.

Special Hello to: everyone who wants their life to be better ….. it can be …. one thought at a time.

Always, Carol and Alvin
