Living … One day at a time.


With my trusted companion Alvin at my side – I am back after 11 days to write.

I have both missed and dreaded the writing and the process.

But today seemed like a good day to start once again.

I am living my life one day at a time.


Inside this twenty-four hours.

We are starting this day a bit later than usual.

Waiting for the coffee to perk.

Have to have coffee to start the day.

Oh, how I love the aroma of coffee perking.

Today is our last day before I head back to work at the office.


During the past six decades of my life; I have lived most of that time by planning.

I planned what I was going to wear to work.

I planned what I was going to make for supper for the week.

I planned the where, the when, the why and the how of my life.

Somedays but not all days I was sorely disappointed.

So for the past few years I have changed my mindset.

I live my life ONE DAY AT A TIME.

That is not to say that I don’t plan ahead for some things because that would be a grievous error on my part.

However; I live within the time that is here and now.

Be present and in the moment.

Being the best me in this very moment.


I do believe that as we get older …. living in the moment is very important.

Making every second the best that it can be.

Now of course, I am very much a realist as much as I am a dreamer.

I know that every single solidarity second is not perfection.

I know that every single solidarity second could be bliss.

It is all about what you determine it it be.

Maybe it is not so important to be late once in awhile or not to do something at 110%.

Perhaps to walk away from washing the floor to enjoy a walk with Alvin when the sun is shining is a much better use of that time.

Perhaps, perhaps.


Well time to go and see if the coffee did perk after all.

Likely will have to play with it a bit.


Thank you for taking this journey with me.

Through the ups and downs.

Through each day.

Living … One day at a time.


Always, Carol & Alvin
