Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 18th day of February, 2019.

The sun is up.

Shining brightly on this Family Day.

This is a Statutory Holiday here so our office is closed today.

I am grateful to have another day at home with Mr. Alvin.

 

We were up at 4:00 a.m. as he had to go outside.

Thankfully we were in bed about 10:30 p.m.

I caught the first 30 minutes of the Elvis Presley Celebration.

Thankfully I had the mindset to record to watch at a later time.

 

The weather channel is forecasting warmer temperatures over the coming days.

YAHOO, walking will be in our future.

We did manage to take a short walk to the park yesterday afternoon.

It was cold but so much better than the past over two week period.

 

I have decided to take one hour every weekend to go through my on-line photos and delete the ones that are out of focus or duplicates.

When you have 30,000 photos on your computer – it is time to do something.

I also have about 10,000 hard copies of photos in boxes that need to be sorted.

A HUGE JOB.

 

Well I am thinking that today is a good day to make some pancakes.

My daughter might be coming over for a visit.

I love making pancakes for her.

 

So another day in paradise.

We are so blessed, me and Mr. Alvin.

 

My thoughts do go to all of the bunnies, birds and other wildlife that are desperately foraging for food.

We have quite a bit of snow.

 

Happy Family Day.

I  hope that you enjoy your time with your family.

Family may be described as any being that you “love.”

May be two-legged or four or winged or …..

Family are the ones that are ….

They may be of same blood, related or not ….

Family are the ones that you want to spend time with ….

Whether you spend the day playing board games or baking together…

Whether you talk on the phone or go to see a movie.

Just spend time together.

Just be.

Happy Family Day.

 

Special Hello to: all of my Family, related and those who are not, we love you and have a Happy Family Day.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 26th day of August, 2017.

Another multiple birthday day …… Happy Birthday “T”, and “M-L”

I know that I miss writing everyone’s birthdays on my blog but I think of you, all.

 

Well the sun is shining, there is a bit of a cool breeze and the sky is that beautiful pale blue with highlights of yellow.

Perfect morning.

This is an unusually busy day for us.

So no time like the present to get this day on the way.

Shower – check

Blog – check

Breakfast – to do

Then put things into high gear.

 

Have an awesome day.

Looking forward to a bit of yard work, housework, laundry, four-legged company (grand-pups) and then the kids, three of them for an overnight visit.

Busy day but a good day.

 

Gotta run.

Happy Saturday.

 

Special Hello to: those celebrating a birthday today.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 1st day of January, 2016.

A New Year.

Alvin and I managed to stay up until Midnight ….

 

The sun is shining brightly in the sky …

 

 

This morning I am reminded of all the dear souls two-legged and four-legged that we lost in 2015.

Just received a call that …

Yesterday …. our friend “KOA” has left us.

The big yellow dog that would visit my neighbour.

Rest in peace KOA … we know she is in a better place and we wrap our arms around her Mom “K” who misses her so much.

We have been blessed to know, to have learned and to have been in their lives.

 

Today remember …. turn on the photos in your memory and watch their stories.

Remember all of the joyful times you spent together.

 

Take care …..

 

Special Hello to: everyone who has lost someone ….. we miss them, too.

Always, Carol and Alvin
