Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 21st day of September, 2014.

It is a bright sunny warm day here in Edmonton.

My neighbour is having a “front lawn” sale so my daughter and I checked it out.

Picked up a few things ….

Did not get carried away ….

Only items I knew that I would use ……

After giving and selling a ton of things this summer, the last thing that I want to do is get a house full of items that I do not need.

It is so easy to pick up things when on sale or at garage sales because of the pricing.

But really ……

ONLY GET WHAT YOU REALLY NEED.

That is my motto.

We, North Americans are notorious for accumulating material things.

I think we should start a trend and all downsize.

My neighbour also told me of a friend of hers that was doing a 21 day cleanse.

It was not the cleanse for your body but for your soul.

Starting on Day one you give away one item until you are up to 21 items per day.

What a great idea.

Wished that I would have thought of that…..

I think that for every item other than food that you bring into the house you must give away an item.

That way you never get overloaded with things.

Well almost time to leave for work ….. have to go to the mall early as we need to pick up a few things and I am on the hunt for a good pair of winter boots.

The kind that actually keep your feet and legs warm……

Something that has good grip on the ice and snow.

Wish me luck.

Happy Fall to You.

Special Hello to: all those people who are “cleansing your soul” …… you will feel better as you clean it ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
