Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 24th day of August, 2016.

Rain cleared up and now time for some sunshine.

I want to share some of the beautiful and wonderful treats that have come my way this week.

Let us start with Sunday.

My roses are the most delicate of pinks I have ever seen.

They are blooming like they have never bloomed before and oh so gorgeous.

These little darlings have decided to take a peek through the railing – I suppose just to see what is on the other side.

Thought you might enjoy them.

Everyone loves a Tuesday when parcels arrive one in the mailbox and the other on my doorstep.

The parcel in my mailbox was addressed to both Alvin and his Momma, well that would be me.

I picked up the parcel before going into the house and Alvin knew, he could smell because right away he jumped up to see

what had arrived.

But good Momma that I am – I made us both wait until after Alvin had supper and our walk before we opened the package.

Can you believe my friend?

She was just supposed to be sending me this new toothpaste that she uses and loves.

She gave me a small tube and I loved it, too.

My friend ordered me some and then mailed it to me.

Only thing is ….. my friend ….. well she can never just mail one tube of toothpaste.

The box as you can see in the photos was LARGE.

OMG, the goodies that filled it were/are amazing.

There were cheese buns, regular buns, this delectable pumpkin loaf with walnuts and fruit with chocolate icing, pumpkin – carrot muffins, Saskatoon berry chocolates, some healthy soy sauce in a cool spray bottle, a brush for when she comes to visit and bakes me buns (she said that), small tongs and a package addressed specially for Mr. Alvin.  Oh my he was so excited.  He jumped up.  In fact as you can see in the photo his Momma did not get a clear shot as he inspected the package and read the note addressed to him (he is home schooled) ….. he absolutely loved his special treats for his teeth.

Now if that was not enough of wonderful treats my last tea order arrived.  I packaged up the orders and ready to deliver tomorrow.

The first photo is all MINE ….. so excited.

I am happy to try out my new MATCHA Shaker and all the new teas and things.

So as you can see  …… the special delivery GODS were shining down upon my on this Tuesday.

I just know that this week is going to be epic … full of more wonderful surprises.

P.S. not to be excluded from the greats treats but my neighbour from the other half of my duplex stopped by for a visit just night before last.

They are settling into their new house.  Alvin and I are so excited to go in September for a visit.

Well …… see what a week.

Met some new people …… loving this week.

Well here it is time to leave for work once again.

The evenings seem to zing by as do the small amount of time I have in the mornings.

I always feel bad leaving Alvin as it must be lonely …..

Wishing you a great Wednesday.

Almost time for a new month to begin.

August has been wonderful.

Special Hello to: my friend “V” back in Regina, thank you once again for the lovely Surprise Package.  The pumpkin loaves with the chocolate icing are my new favourite.  Alvin loved loved loved his treats and I will not tell him that they are good for him.  LOL

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 23rd day of June, 2016.

Another thunder/lightning/rain storm last night.

The grass, flowers and trees are looking so good.

The best in a long time.

We certainly needed the moisture.

Sounds like more rain in our future.

Alvin did fine last night as the storm was not quite so fierce as the previous night.

My tea order arrived and I got it sorted and packed.

We had a quiet lovely evening.

I fooled around on my tablet trying to get the photos for my upcoming garage sale posted on KIJIJI and on a local FB page.

Was successful for the most part except for the FB page I ended up closed it off as it did not display the way that it looked.

So will try again tonight as least I know what to do.

My kids are on their way here as Mr. Elton will be spending the day with Alvin so that will be nice.

I had better once again get this show on the road.

I hope that you have an awesome Thursday.

Special Hello to: my friend “M” – tea has arrived.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, December 15th, 2015.

Ten days until Christmas Eve.

A bit cooler here this morning but certainly not bad at all for this time of year.

Last night I was greeted my the delivery of my TEA ORDER.

YAY ….. so stayed up late putting the order together.

Today delivery ….

Most of the orders were from my office so that makes it easy.

My neighbour has graciously offered to drive me to my work so that I do not have to take it all on the bus.

Frankly, if it were the only choice …. it would take me four days to get it all to work.

Just not an easy task.

Well how are things?

Are you doing okay today?

Ten days away ….

I know I am so EXCITED.

 

Last night one of the two orders that were not from work was from a neighbour and friend down the street.

She has patiently been waiting for the order to arrive.

So I gladly delivered it and one hour later I was back home.

It would seem that I cannot go anywhere taking me a few minutes.

Just as I was leaving another friend and neighbour of ours dropped by.

Tis the season.

Poor Alvin I left him at home thinking I would be quick.

We did do a walk earlier but he loves to visit.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

 

Special Hello to: all those friends out there …. sharing their lives.

Always, Carol and Alvin
