Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 18th day of September, 2017.

Another dark, crisp morning here in Edmonton.

As the days grow shorter and cooler – me Alvin is less inclined to hurry out of the house in the wee hours of the morning.

He hesitates just a bit longer before finally leaving the warmth of the house.

Although the past few mornings have not been warm in our house (still have not turned on the furnace) but more warm than the great outdoors nonetheless.

Back to work after the most lovely weekend.

Just putzed around the house and yard doing what needed to be done and going for walks with Alvin.

We had a great time and snuggling, well that is my very favourite part.

 

Looks like it is almost time to leave for the trek to the bus.

Takes a bit longer now that I have to don a coat, scarf, shoes not sandals and mini gloves.

Likely will grab my umbrella as well as you never know.

 

So excited in less than one week the new Star Trek weekly television series begins “Star Trek Discovery.”

Cannot wait.

 

Have a wonderful Monday.

Let us be kind and generous to all the souls we encounter on this day and each day that follows.

Thank you.

 

Special Hello to: my kids of whom as the best souls on the planet ….. warm and kind and generous …. good to animals and to humans. ┬áSo proud of them.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 17th day of September, 2017.

Today is the birthday of my Steeped Tea Leader, Happy Birthday “C.”

She is a sweet, kind and wonderful gal.

 

The sun is shining this morning.

The house does not seem as cold as it has the past few mornings.

I am steadfast in my decision not to turn on the furnace at this time.

Obviously if the temperature dips below ZERO degrees, it will have to go on as I do not wish the pipes to freeze.

Will have to watch my plants as the colder it gets at night the harder it is to pull them out (these are annuals in pots).

My tomato plant was DONE yesterday so I pulled it.

My first one and I even had tomatoes, so happy about that.

 

Yesterday with the new blade for Mr. Alvin’s electric clippers I gave him a great hair cut EXCEPT …..

I noticed later last night that I missed a bit on his one side.

How could I have missed that spot is beyond me but I did ….. glory me.

Oh well at some point I will grab him (he does not like having his hair cut) and trim that up.

He does look back to his most handsomest self, I must say.

After his oatmeal and aloe shampoo/conditioner with bath after the cut he is so SOFT.

 

Well I guess time to get this day going.

Oh, the grand-pups stopped by for a nice visit yesterday.

At one point all three were laying in different areas chewing on a chew treat.

Alvin on the sofa, Baby Milo on Alvin’s chair by the window and Miss Aspen on the floor.

Did not have time to grab a video as it would have been PRICELESS but I have the image engrained in my memory banks for all time.

So we had a great Saturday.

Along with cleaning up some things outside and mowing the back patch of grass, we did laundry, okay I did laundry, baked a ginger chocolate loaf (Steeped Tea), Alvin’s hair cut, made a huge supper

so will have leftovers for a few days and VACUUMED.

So will have a more quiet day which is nice.

Happy Sunday everyone.

 

As much as I love the fall ……. oh, the leaves are falling and that is a sign that the other is not far behind.

It would be so nice to have a nice long warm fall (about 17-21 degrees celsius).

 

Oh, I forgot and I do not know how I managed not to hear about this but there is a new STAR TREK television series starting on September 24, 2017.

Next Sunday.

I had one of the new STAR TREK movies on the television when the kids picked up the pups and my son-on-law asked me if I was excited about the new show.

I saw “what.”

I am so excited that it will be on CTV and not just SPACE as I do not have the SPACE channel.

So lucky me do not even have to add another channel to my cable package.

No extra money.

So excited ….. STAR TREK DISCOVERY.

No. 1 on my fall line-up.

 

Have an awesome Sunday.

I am going now.

Special Hello to: all those STAR TREK fans …. yay a new television series.

Always, Carol & Alvin
