Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 8th day of December, 2014.

“17” days until Christmas Eve…..

How was your weekend?

Mine was great.

Busy as per usual.

I can check off “Christmas Baking” as completed.

Taste test done by my daughter and son-in-law and all is good in that department.

Last night I wrote up some cards for the office and will take them in this morning.

Still have a few more to do.

I also have a few more to mail.

Our weather has been great …. feels like spring.

Supposed to be plus temperatures all this week.

How crazy is that for December in Alberta?

It is crazy, believe me.

I am so excited to have some time off at Christmas from the office.

Still working some of those days at the store but to have only one job will be a good break for me.

Time to recharge my batteries so to speak.

I am almost ready for Christmas.

We measured the puppies so that I can go and pick up their new harnesses which is their Christmas present from me.

I am so excited.

They are so much nicer than the ones they have now.

New technology.

Well almost time to go to work.

I hope that you had an awesome day and that you took some time for yourself, and that when you were in the company of others you were kind and respectful.

It is not an easy thing to do all the time.

I am a work in progress.

It is not that we are not necessarily kind and respectful, more like impatient and sometimes perhaps a bit rude.

I know at this time of year with people rushing around including you and me; it is something that we need to take into account.

I know that sometimes my patience runs a bit low.

Sounds like the “bus” is almost ready to leave so better go grab my lunch and coat.

Have a great day.

Remember as long as we try to be good and decent human beings – we likely are.

I hope that you are enjoying this holiday season.

Special Hello to: family and friends, near and far.

Always, Carol and Alvin
