Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 9th day of February, 2018.

Happy 41st Birthday to my eldest nephew “T.”

Hard to believe that you are 41 years old, where has the time gone?

Crazy ….


So happy that today is Friday and that I made it through this first week back to work after being sick.

Tomorrow is Mr. Alvin’s appointment.

The one that was post phoned from last Saturday.

He has to get his shots, nails trimmed, “bum squeezed” and I think that is about it.

Will be good to get those things caught up.

I do take him on a very regular basis.


Also this weekend I am hosting a belated 40 Birthday party for my friend.

It was supposed to have been last weekend, as well.

I am baking a cake tonight.

The party will be on Sunday.

Decorations, I want to come up with some new ideas.

Perhaps I should check out Pinterest.

Have the card and gift to finish wrapping.


Well I am also most happy about this …. the weather.

It is warming up one again.

Thank goodness.

Spring is also getting closer.


Well I guess I should get this show on the road.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

Oh, one more thing to share.

I met a young woman yesterday who gave me back my faith in humanity.

I cannot give details but suffice to say …. I have faith once again.

Not that I lost it altogether but it was failing.


Special Hello to: the birthday boy.

Always, Carol & Alvin


Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 13th day of May, 2017.

The rain has definitely set in ….. no clear blue sky to be seen.

The sky is a light grey colour.

A bit on the windy side.

Perfect for our walk to the Vet this morning.

Mr. Alvin has his 6 week pedicure and bum squeeze (perhaps that is a bit personal, sorry Alvin).

We will don as close to rain gear as we have for our walk.

I am very grateful that Dr. K. is only a ten minute walk from our house.


Will enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee on the return home.


Looks like this is going to be an indoor kind of weekend.

Although I may just go out and clean up the walk way.

I was thoroughly disgusted last night as I walked through on my way home.

Even if I just clean that up I will feel better …. wet and heavy, I do not care.

Has to be done.

Just getting worse.

Perhaps if people see me out in the rain …… they might think twice.

Likely not but one has to remain positive, right.


I hope that you all have an awesome Saturday.

Whether wet or dry.

Be kind and generous and POLITE.



Time to go and capture Mr. Alvin to don his harness and jacket.

He is going to love that….. not really.


Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: friends and family – family and friends all over the world.

Thought for the day….

Welcome to Friday, October 12th, 2012 ……

Today is my day off from my office job and I work the evening shift at the store.

But I plan to play and work for the rest of the day.

So my friend “G” and the kids are coming over for coffee/visit; afterward I will do some work.

Mid afternoon Mr. Alvin has an appointment with the vet (he’s okay just a nail trim and his annual shots).

Then come home and start getting ready to go to work as I am catching the bus to work tonight.

I actually love catching the bus …. you get to meet all kinds of wonderful and interesting people.

In between you hear people talking on their phones in every language on the planet.

The rhythm of their voices relaxes my mind and I just listen.

Not knowing what they are saying but just sitting there ….

Then I will at the store …. my favourite store …. the staff and the customers are amazing …. always fun.

I meet so many wonderful people ….

Well better get going … just time to vacuum the floors and put the coffee on before my company arrives.

Have a great weekend.

Special Hello to:  everyone working in retail ….. you rock.


Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. “G” just called the kids are sick so I am going over there for coffee ….. and pumpkin muffins.  How did I get so lucky?  Sorry for Mr. Alvin as he was excited to see his friends.  I will leave the television on so he has company.

Vacuuming can wait until later ….. mmmm ……. perhaps Al can do some housework while I pop out for coffee…..  LOL
