Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday, December 23rd, 2012 …… guess what …. only “1” sleep until Christmas Eve.

Are you excited?  I am excited.

I am always excited to spend quality time with my daughter, son-in-law and their dogs Elton and Penny.

This year we will also be joined by Sir Casey …. he belongs to friends.

So we will have four dogs in my house for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day ….. it will be just like having children about….

I just have to share something with you all …… do you remember when I mentioned about going to work yesterday and that it was deemed “Super Saturday” ….. and that I would smile, be happy etc.?

Well the first customer I went to greet as I started my shift … walked toward me and asked me if “she could give me a hug”?

Can you imagine that a total stranger …. on the third last busiest shopping day before Christmas.

I was so grateful and knew right then and there that the day was going to be great and it totally was amazing.

Some other customers that I knew popped in and it was great being able to wish them a Merry Christmas.

A very successful day by my counts.

Alvin had a great day at his sister’s house and even got to go on a walk….

Well today looks like it will be busy ( I slept in extra this morning ) and I truly need that cup of coffee to start my day.

It is still snowing here in Edmonton and has been since yesterday.  I think it might have stopped for a bit yesterday afternoon.

I did shovel part of the deck so that Alvin did not get lost in all the snow.

Last night and earlier this morning when he went out the snow was passed the top of his legs and it is fluffy so it just went flying as he walked onto the deck.

So my “to do” list for today looks something like this: from this point go put on coffee after writing blog, start first of four loads of laundry, give Alvin a bath before clean floors and trim his coat, vacuum, dust, clean t.v., clean all three bathrooms, shovel front of house, rest of the deck and driveway which is out back etc.  ( I wrote up my list before coming upstairs and it is long but I will get things done ).  Tomorrow will be preparing food in the morning and then shower after lunch and relax.  Other than the meal cooking on Christmas Day I will be having fun.

Anyway, I had better get this show on the road …..

I hope that you have a great day and no matter what …. just smile and enjoy.

I believe that any day I get out of bed and am breathing is a good day.  It can only get better from there…..

Have a great day.

Special Hello to:  all of your company this holiday season ……


Always, Carol and Alvin
