Thought for the day……….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 10th day of August, 2014.

It is overcast and cool this morning which is a nice way to begin the day.

I had the best “57th” Birthday one could ever ask for or even dream about ….

I was surrounded by those that I love.

I received many Birthday Wishes from near and far …

We shared good food ….. some of my favourites which I prepared.

My favourite dessert: fruit pizza covered in a zillion fruits.

Received some beautiful flowers in radiant shades of pink, and unexpected gifts.

We took all of the puppies for a walk after supper.

Just before the movie one of my neighbours dropped by with beautiful hand crafted gifts including the card.

Oh and I also received several beautiful and thoughtful cards.

Ending with a movie at home with my family.

It was the perfect day.

No stress ….. just love.

Just perfect.

I am so grateful that I am able to be home for one more day before returning to the regular routine.

Who knows perhaps I hold some winning lottery tickets …. that truly would be the icing on the cake.

Now off to feed Miss Aussie …. she is the cat of one of my neighbour’s.

Oh, I see the sun coming out.

Mmmm. Nice.

I hope that you all had a great weekend and that it continues on this peaceful glorious Sunday.

Thank you for reading my blog and bringing the number to now over 500.

How very cool …..

Special Hello to:  Happy Birthday to all those August babies.  I have more family and friends with birthdays in August.  I wished that I could celebrate with each and every one of you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Oh, I forgot to download some of my birthday photos ….. later …

My Daughter Amanda…..

On Saturday afternoon – my daughter Amanda surprised me by dropping by with a beautiful bouquet of flowers (purples and greens) and the most thoughtful card.

An early birthday present….. lucky me.

The flowers matched my table place mats ….. just perfectly.

If I imagined her speaking – she would say those words.  So perfect.

It was unexpected and so lovely.

I have the most thoughtful daughter and she is such a generous and loving human being.

Makes me proud to be her Mom and proud that she is my daughter.

Thank you so much Amanda for that unexpected “treat”…… next to my kids ….. flowers and words are my favourite things.

Always, Carol
