Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 28th day of October, 2017.

The wind is actually WARM this morning which is actually a bit unusual for almost the end of October.

Alvin and I are gearing up for our company.

We are puppy sitting “Master Teddy” today.

He really isn’t a puppy as I think he is about four years old but to Alvin and I, he is a baby.

We will have some play time in the back yard today for sure.

 

Today is an important day for another reason, it is the birthday of a long time dear friend of mine, “L.”

He is one of those people that is warm, kind and funny.

When I lived in Regina and he after they (his wife and children) moved to Saskatoon,  he would always come visit me.

Every time they were in Regina, he would make time to come and have coffee with me.

One of my dearest and best friends.

Happy Birthday Buddy …… Have a great day.

 

Well before the Teddy arrives – still have to have breakfast and put the coffee on.

 

Happy Saturday …..

Enjoy the day….

 

Special Hello to:  you and you and you.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 4th day of November, 2016.

What ….. November 4th.

Well Halloween decorations are all down and in storage containers.

Yesterday was amazing …. the wind was actually warm.

Felt like a summer day.

Tomorrow is to be +15 celsius.

WOW.

Last year on this date:

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 4th day of November, 2015.

Well no additional moisture overnight …. that is a good thing.

We had the most glorious huge wet snowflakes yesterday …

I was standing right in the middle of them waiting to catch a bus to an appointment.

I wanted to stick out my tongue and let them land but decided against it.

You know people around …..

Almost one week into November, can you believe it?

In just a few shorts weeks it will be …… CHRISTMAS!

I just have to snag my neighbour so that we can decorate outside and a few finishing touches inside and I am finished with the decorations.

Next step: print our photos and start writing our Christmas letter and Christmas cards.

I like to have them mailed before December 1st, 2015.

Most especially the overseas ones ….. best to have them done by mid November.

Sounds like Alvin and I will be spending Christmas with the kids and grand-puppies at the new house.

Exciting.

I am so excited.

This weekend my Daughter and I will be preparing for the craft sale at one of the hospitals here in Edmonton.

I guess they are always busy …. can only imagine the traffic at a hospital ….

It will be fun.

Lots of exciting … fun events coming up.

I am grateful to have fun things to do so that it offsets the not so pleasant things we all have to do.

Actually I am pretty blessed in my life and am grateful.

We all have speed bumps along the way ….. as long as we try to be kind and respectful and are grateful we will get through each one.

Well almost time to place the finishing touches on getting ready for work.

I hope that you all have the most wonderful day ever.

May laughter be the backdrop for your day.

May kindness and joy be the centre pieces.

Happy Wednesday All.

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

Mr. Alvin had the Momma up again extra early.

So I am running late here.

Time to leave for the bus.

Happy Friday.

This post from last year really is a good one for me to read ……. being grateful and such.

A good reminder.

Special Hello to: YOU ALL

Always, Carol and Alvin
