Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning and Welcome to A Wintery Morning.

Meaning we have SNOW.

Well yesterday throughout the daytime it was raining and gradually throughout the late afternoon and early evening it turned to wet snow.

The sticky stuff and it has not melted.

We are covered with a thick blanket of snow once again.

The trees look so pretty painted with snow.

It looks like someone took a paint brush and painted the top of the branches with a white fluffy paint.

The last bunny that I saw was almost white.

 

Last night was the GIRL GUIDE SNOWFLAKE TEA/COOKIE SALE.

They changed the location after like forever.

To some HIGH SCHOOL about 1/2 hour away from us.

The roads luckily were okay there and back.

 

The setup was much different than previous years due to the location, of course.

But worked out perfectly.

I purchased 4 dozen cookies and squares.

My favourite purchase was “puffed wheat cake.”

They had them individually wrapped.

We enjoyed a visit along with a cupcake and drink, I had coffee.

I also picked up some Christmas coasters made by one of the older GUIDES.

They were made of ceramic tiles, cannot wait to undo the ribbon and view the other three.

 

 

Alvin was so happy to see me when I arrived home.

 

Well I guess we will not have photos this morning.

I ran into technical difficulties or rather human something or other.

I am quite certain that your vivid imagination can picture the snow covered branches of the trees.

 

Perhaps they will end up here tomorrow.

As if by magic.

 

Have an awesome Wednesday.

Time to finish getting ready.

Perhaps shovel a bit of snow on the deck.

The rest will be tonight.

 

Travel throughout your days with kindness and respect.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 8th day of March, 2016.

After Alvin’s supper and stuff last night we opted to clean the deck and the front walk instead of traipsing through the wet snow that is covering most of the neighbouring sidewalks.

Man, what a workout.

Shovelling that heavy wet snow as it felt like lifting a shovel full of water only it was coloured.

Good for the arms and core, I would imagine.

Alvin had fun sniffing about as I shovelled.

He also ran to our neighbour’s beside us (not other half) and went right up her steps …. she saw us and came out.

We usually take turns shovelling ….. we just had beat her outside.

Alvin really loves her and like to snuggle any chance he gets …. so cute.

While he visited we chatted and I shovelled.

Multi-tasking at its best.

I am gearing up for a busy weekend.

One of my neighbour’s is having a Steeped Tea party at my house on Saturday (so convenient for me) following that a small intimate birthday party for my daughter.

So lots of baking and cooking to do…… YAY.

Sunday morning coffee with my girl pals.

 

Okay, what happened to the morning ….. it is time to leave for work.

The temperature is to be plus 2 today and then 7-9 plus degrees over the next few days and into the weekend.

So excited.

Spring is here.

 

I hope that you have an amazing day.

We should always remind ourselves to be KIND and RESPECTFUL to every living creature not just the two-legged ones.

Until tomorrow.

 

Special Hello to: my friends all over the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day….

Welcome to Wednesday September 19th, 2012 ….

The air is cool this morning and it is still dark outside.

We are getting into the shorter days of the year now.

This is my favourite time of year.

The colours, the comfortable temps, the preparations of the animal kingdom and the fact that my two favourites times are close at hand.

They are:  Halloween and Christmas.

I love to decorate and prepare …… the anticipation ….. I am just like a small child ….. go figure ….

Well, is fall your favourite time of year or perhaps it is spring or summer or even winter ……

We are blessed here in Canada to have definite changes in the seasons.

I do however remember there to be more of a noticeable difference between winter and spring.

Now it seems to go from snow and cold to wet snow and bit warmer to no snow.

The air used to smell differently or at least I remember it to be so.

Anyway, I should run ….. working gal you know.

I hope that wherever you are …. you are enjoying this wonderful mid week day.

I wish you many blessings, perfect health and abundance.

Have a great great day.

Special Hello to:  my friend “S” who turns 40 today ….. and to all those people of all ages celebrating a birthday today.

Always, Carol and Alvin
