Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 12th day of October, 2017.

Well there is no SNOW on the ground this morning which is a good sign.

More time without the pretty stuff.

We went for a short walk last night as the wind was freezing cold.

So thankful to be getting a ride home and to be getting home so VERY early.

Yesterday was home by 4:45 p.m. and we even made a couple of stops.

WOW …. normally on the bus I get home … well, let me think about that for a second ….. THERE IS NO NORMAL …. anytime between 5:15-5:45 p.m.

Feeling pretty spoiled this week, to be sure.

Nothing says FALL like a parcel from our good friend “V” ….

Truth be told ….. she spoils us ….. with goodies all year long.

She knows how to spoil me and Mr. Alvin.

There was a bag of treats for the boy.

Muffins, Pumpkin Snickerdoodles, Caramel Chocolate tarts, Brownies like a cupcake with chocolate icing and a piece of KIT KAT chocolate bars and a DEEP DEEP DISH APPLE PIE.

Now this would have been more than enough treats for us ….. she also gave me the most gorgeous turquoise pendant.

I am wearing it today.

I, we are so grateful to have such a thoughtful, kind and generous friend.

 

Footnote: to the treats for Alvin.  He went overboard and guess who was up SICK last night about 1:30 a.m.?  Not the Momma.  Note to self: do not keep letting him have treats …. he has no self control.  Have to teach him …. NO…..never too late to learn something new.  “ALVIN…”

There is so much to be thankful for this week and all the weeks of my life.

I am surrounded by great people.

I live in peace and joy.

I live knowing that if I truly would like to do something (legal of course), I may do so.

I live knowing I can make my dreams come true.

I live knowing that life is great at any age.

 

Whoops time to fly.

Have an awesome Thursday.

Happy Thursday.

 

Special Hello to:  my dear friend “V” who keeps me full of homemade sweet delectable treats …… thank you.

Always, Carol & Alvin
