It is a NEW YEAR.

Well it is Friday, end of the first week back in our old newly renovated office space.

I must say I really like my workspace.

The noise level can sometimes be a major distraction but perhaps in time they will add some paintings or something to the walls to help absorb the sound.

Otherwise so far so good.

Last night we went for a walk but only as far as the park and Alvin turned back (there was no changing his mind).

I found a bit of bile on the main floor; so he definitely had an upset tummy and gas.

I noticed he has had gas for the past couple of days.

So back to only his food, his biscuits from the vet and only small amount of banana and perhaps carrots in the evenings.

No other treats.

I think sometimes it can be too much for the “old” guy.

But this morning all seems well.

I think that excess gas is an age thing.

I will admit that I suffer from “gas attacks” from time to time, okay more often than that.

LOL.

What can I say?

Alvin is resting on his blue blanket beside my computer chair.

He is always in a hurry to lay down on his blanket.

We have a routine.

That routine will be disrupted this weekend as tomorrow the Teddy and his little sister Kobi arrive.

They will be with us until next Saturday when their Aunt J arrives home from Mexico.

I am excited to visit with Aunt J and catch up.

We always have good visits and suppers together.

Tonight my daughter is picking me up from work.

I always cherish our time together.

How long is winter?

I had been asking myself that very question up until the past few days.

It feels like spring outside.

The sun is shining …… I can see and hear the snow melting from the roof …… hip hip hooray !!!

It has been so great that Alvin and I have been going out for walks everyday.

Life is always …. BETTER ….. MORE GREAT – when the sun shines and the snow is melting…..

Have a blessed day….

Always, Carol

In January of 2011, I was still a “retired” individual.

Home with Alvin.

A few months later our lives would change again when I went back to work.

For several years I worked two jobs.

Now just one.

 

I was going to post a random day from years ago and found just a short little post with my logo.

Strange how today the weather is similar, almost ten years later.

**********************************

 

Well almost time to head on downstairs.

I hope that you all have an awesome day.

Happy Friday.

Be Kind and Respectful to yourself and spread that to all you meet (all).

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 24th day of October, 2016.

Wow what a grand Sunday we had with our company.

My daughter and grand-puppy Elton came by for several hours.

We had a pancake breakfast, coffee, went through our jewellery for the upcoming sale, visited some more and even had time to take the pups for a

walk before they left for home.

My daughter managed to take some video and photos of the pups on our walk.

Mr. Elton continues to have that gait to this walk.

He is so cute.

It was a great day.

Now back to work.

Seems like those two weekend days always go in hyperdrive.

Oh well.

Gives me the opportunity to use such words as hyperdrive.

My futuristic word.

Not that it is really applicable to much in this day and age.

I suppose there may be a few things.

We were pleasantly surprised by the amount of jewellery we have as we have taken a break from the jewellery business as of late.

We each had some that we did not realize ….

Well actually since we lost our beloved Penny in March.

Sometimes you just have to take a break.

Take some time.

For me, it is not so easy to be creative when you are working “two” jobs.

But as we both love being creative we will return to the jewellery making at some point.

In the meantime I have decided to do custom pieces when they are requested.

Well I have to go as Mr. Alvin needs to go outside before I leave for work.

I hope that you had an enjoyable Sunday.

Thank you for sharing your time with me.

I hope that something I write brings a smile to your face and joy to your heart.

That is what life is all about being joyful.

Special Hello to: all my friends and family.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Monday Morning and Welcome to the 13th day of May, 2013.

Wow, almost at the midpoint of May.

Are you having a great month of May thus far?

I must say that I am.

The past couple of weeks have been chalked full of excitement.

– first neighbourhood trash pickup

– fell on the only piece of ice left in Edmonton, and now I get to go to physiotherapy for my knee ( never been to physiotherapy )

– got rid of the yucky snow mould and leaves that blew in from all across the neighbourhood on both front and back yards

– brought out all of the deck furniture

– enjoyed my first cup of coffee on the deck with my daughter and the puppies (no coffee for the puppies)

-cleaned out winter clothes and brought back summer

-made jewellery with my daughter

-wrote on my blog and in my journal and in my “writing book”

-enjoying the season finales of all my shows

-enjoyed the finale of Survivor and I will not divulge the winner’s name

-had the best Mother’s Day

-having a blast on the morning after ….. that would be today.

 

So that has be the month thus far for me.  I know that I have missed some things but that is life in between two jobs.

Also coffee with friends in there, as well.

So have a great day.

Gotta run …. my early start day.

 

Special Hello to:  SUMMER

 

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

P.S. will have to post photos ……
