Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 22nd day of February, 2019.

Yay, it is the weekend.

Weather has definitely been warmer the past few days.

Alvin and I have been enjoying our walks after work.

Last night we picked up Teddy and Aunt J and they joined us for the remainder of our regular route.

Feeling a lot less cob webbed having that lovely fresh air being absorbed through our skin, nose and mouth.

 

Tomorrow is my sister’s 60th Birthday.

I cannot believe we are both in our sixties.

Where has the time gone?

Once upon a time we were little girls.

Our mother made our dresses and everyone thought we were twins.

For the longest time even though we are eighteen months apart – we were practically the same size.

In fact, we had friends and neighbours that the oldest two children were boys, 18 months apart and almost the exact size.

When we were all lined up for a photo we could have passed for quadruplets.

We grew up on a farm.

Surrounded by cows, pigs, chickens, ducks and horses.

There were always animals around.

Oh, we had at least one dog and many cats.

My sister and I loved animals from the beginning with the exception of her fear of birds.

Likely due to the chickens chasing her when she was young.

We worked hard as children on the farm.

Always house to clean and chores to do.

When there was time to play we usually used our surroundings in our games.

Both my sister and I loved school and our grades reflected that love.

Even when we did not live close by we were always in touch with each other.

Long distance.

Over the years we have remained close.

Now our babies have grown and there are grand babies.

She lives in Saskatchewan and I live in Alberta.

We may not chat every day or even every week but we REMAIN ALWAYS CLOSE in our minds and hearts.

Happy early Birthday my wonderful, beautiful sister.

Will chat tomorrow.

 

Well almost time to finish getting ready, last day of work for the week.

Then time to work at home.

 

Special Hello to: my sister, love you my darling.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 14th day of January, 2017.

Wow the sun is up and shining with promises of warmer temperatures for today and tomorrow.

We went for a walk after work.

It was the first one in many days.

We did not go far before Mr. Alvin turned around and headed for home but we did go for a few minutes walk.

Some exercise is better than none.

 

Enjoy your weekend.

 

Special Hello to:  Family and Friends all over the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 25th day of May, 2015.

The sun is coming up and forecast is for 25 degrees celsius today.

I hope that you had a great weekend.

Mine was wonderful.

Great company, accomplished many items from my master TO DO LIST and relaxed.

Doesn’t get better than that.

It feels strange ….. I have decided to wear dresses more often.

They are cooler in the warmer weather.

So today is a dress day.

I am so used to wearing pants and capris and shorts that I feel almost naked.

Also this dress is a tad shorter.

My daughter picked me up a couple of cute dresses from a swap she had at work.

They fit perfectly.

It was funny because I had been thinking it would be nice to have a couple dresses for the warmer weather.

Voile they showed up.

In my favourite colours, too.

How is that for “thoughts become things.”

So here we go …. try something a bit new.

Well I am running a couple of minutes later as it took some time to do up the back zipper ….. I must show Alvin how to do up a zipper ….. would that not be a sight. ¬†But should would be nice.

Have an awesome Monday.

Special Hello to: all those people who are trying something new today, you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin
