It is a NEW YEAR.

Sunday morning coming down!

Yes, it is.

Raining and the clouds are a deep grey blue as I look out of my office window.

We managed to get a walk in yesterday later in the afternoon between the rain showers.

We also had a surprise visitor.

Master Teddy, Alvin’s best friend.

His Mom texted me to see if Teddy could come for a visit.

It has been at least two weeks since his last visit so of course, I said “yes.”

She said that her sister would drop him by.

Alvin was so excited.

I wished that I had taken a video as they greeted each other outside.

They were so excited.

It was a blur of black and white as they said hello and ran into the house.

Teddy’s Aunt is visiting from Saskatchewan.

So we had a little visit at the doorway …. front sidewalk

First thing after Teddy’s Aunt left was they wanted to go out into the backyard.

So that is what we did.

Thankfully it was not raining at that point in time.

Actually I think most of yesterday afternoon it was just overcast.

Today though is to rain all day long …..

The boys had a nice afternoon while I did laundry, cleaned out both pantries and made a banana/strawberry loaf.

 

First photo: just after arrival going into the backyard

Second, Third and Last: Just as Teddy’s Mom pulled up.  Of course the boys were at the window and last photo running (blur) to the door.

I realized too late that I had not taken any proper photos.

There be video.

As in life, most things happen so quickly that we are not prepared in the moment.

Can be true of taking photos.

 

Well time to go and have a shower.

Then breakfast and COFFEE.

Followed by some quiet time before I sit down and get some work-work done.

Later on I will finish up my housework.

Always lots to do whether at home or at work.

Well both of them are seconds apart.

 

Wishing you a relaxing wonderful Sunday.

Even if it is raining and you cannot go for a walk.

Well maybe you could if you had an umbrella.

I used one of my huge umbrellas to go outside with Alvin just a few minutes ago.

When it is raining …. he will not go out in the back without me.

I guess he figures I should get wet, too.

I do follow as close as I can so that he can be protected under the umbrella which is big enough for me and him and a family of four.

 

I do want to mention one more thing.

Last night I decided to rent a movie from our local cable provider.

I finally watched “Mr. Rogers Neighborhood” with Tom Hanks.

It was great.

Perfect movie for the world to watch at this time or anytime, really.

If you have not seen it, I highly recommend watching.

 

Okay, time to hop into the shower.

I have scary hair right now.

A few minutes ago I had to go out front and check on the attachment to the downspout.

The plastic attachment sometimes slips off or moves.

I made sure to put the hood up on my coat so that anyone going by would not lose concentration and crash their car or if walking, fall down.

Yup, I definitely need to wash my hair.

Oh, likely purple pjs and coat not such a great sight on a Sunday morning.

 

Take care.

Relax.

Deep breaths.

 

Living with kindness and respect for all.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day……

Wow, today is Friday, March the 2nd, 2012.

Last night Amanda and I watched the last of the Harry Potter movies.

I know ….. it has been almost a year since it was released to the big screen but sometimes things happen.

It was amazing ….. worth the wait.

I wish that I was the next JK Rowling and could/would/was writing a world wide hit.

That would be so cool ….. perhaps in the movie Brad and Angelina, The Tom’s Selleck and Hanks could head the all star cast.

WOW, that would be amazing.

So on this incredible high and using all of my “imaginational” powers ….. I AM CAROL Y LEWIS, Author and WRITER EXTRAORDINAIRE……

I hope that you all have an amazing weekend …. I shall enjoy my Friday off with Amanda and the puppies….. we are going to work on our jewelry and visit.

The sun is already coming up and it is light outside ….. thank goodness for March …. whoops I almost said February…..

Special Hello to: YOU ……and YOU ….. AND YOU, too….

Always, Carol and Alvin and my company …. A, E & P….

Thought for the day…..

Today started out storming.  Snowing and blowing.

By mid afternoon the sun was shining and it was -4.

So Alvin and I went for a walk down by one of the nearby lakes.

We bumped into our family (Amanda, Steven, Elton and Penny).

So we enjoyed our walk even more.

So thought for the day….. you never know what the day is going to bring.

I am hoping for some  fun and excitement this evening.

I love Alvin’s company but face it – he is no Tom Hanks.

Alvin is cute as a button but needs to practice his “conversational skills”…. LOL.

Have a great, awesome and amazing evening everyone.

Thanks for reading….

Well Mr. Alvin wants his supper so have to run.

 

Always, Carol
