Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Monday morning here we go.

Back to the weekday routine.

We love routine.

We, Alvin and I had a glorious weekend.

There was a visit and overnight stay by a best friend named Teddy.

There was a visit by our friend and neighbour Humphrey.

There was a visit by the two little neighbour boys from two doors down.

There was JENGA, Halloween ARTWORK, Laughter and toys flying through the air.

Girl Guide Chocolate Mint cookies.

Throughout this weekend surrounded by fur babies and children we had so much fun.

We enjoyed our walks this weekend.

There was sunshine and warm temperatures.

It was perfection.

I even managed to find time for laundry, some cleaning and relaxing.

Although who wants to relax when they are enjoying themselves.

Better to be in enjoyment than a couch potato.

I guess that I should not compare “relaxing” to “being a couch potato.”

They are definitely not one in the same.

Anyway we had a great weekend.

Also yesterday we were out for our walk and bumped into another friend who joined us for an extra long walk.

We just had to enjoy that perfect day …..

 

We both slept well last night and no waking up at 2 or 3 a.m.

First up at 4:00 which is doable.

 

I was working on taking a selfie (yuck, that word) of me and Alvin.

He wasn’t very cooperative but I will keep trying.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

 

 

Kindness and Respect go hand in hand.

A better place.

A better world.

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 11th day of September, 2016.

Wow, for a split second there I thought something was wrong with me or the computer as I was so certain it was the 12th.

Whew.

Until I took a gander across the room to the calendar and it said SEPTEMBER 11th.

Isn’t it funny how something can completely throw you off track and get you so worried in like a nanosecond?

I had one million thoughts going through my brain at the speed of light.

Back to reality.

The sky is overcast and we had another good soaking last night.

The wind is howling away making it seem like it is bitterly cold outside.

I am so happy that Alvin and I enjoyed two wonderful walks yesterday.

We went out in the morning and then again after supper.

It was glorious.

So nice to enjoy the weather while we can.

Last night I decided to make homemade black bean / vegetable burgers.

I pretty much followed the recipe and definitely know what I will do a bit different next time.

They may not look like much but they are so full of flavour once you get past the consistency.

First attempt definitely a pass …..

Next time will be a touchdown.

I am not a big football follower but figured the terms just fit perfectly.

Today is going to be a quiet maybe enjoy some television kind of day.

Perhaps a movie.

We will wait and see what the day brings before going for a walk.

Hopefully the wind will die down.

Today is a do things on the computer kind of day.

I did the laundry and tidied the house yesterday.

Just debating about putting the deck furniture away but think I will wait for another weekend.

Most of my flowers and shrubs are doing great.

The ones that were not I pulled or trimmed back depending on whether or not they were annuals or perennials.

We still have a good week of weather ahead of us according to the long rang forecast.

Might as well enjoy it while we can.

So on this quiet Sunday – I hope that you are unable to enjoy time with your family and friends.

Maybe just a day where you can sit and relax ….. enjoy some laughter, good company and good food.

Take care.

Special Hello to: my friends near and far. ┬áThank you “V” for you never ending support.

Always, Carol and Alvin
