Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 3rd day of July, 2017.

Nice breeze coming through the windows and cooling us off.

Yesterday was a warm day.

My air conditioner needs servicing.

I noticed that it was not keeping the house cool.

Did some reading and like most things air conditioning should be serviced annual.

Well I have not done that.

So we will keep the windows open when it is cool and keep the blinds closed when the sun shines.

I have done some reading and although air conditioning keeps us cool it can do harm as well as increase our carbon emissions.

As I do not have extra money to service the air conditioner we will make do without …..

My only concern is Alvin and I will do everything in my power to make sure he is comfortable.

A fond reminder about being a home owner.

I love having a house but it does cost lost to maintain.

 

Just had the phone ring and the caller ID said RHODE ISLAND and a non 888 or 800 number.

Odd.

 

Well time to get this day on the way.

Alvin and I already went for a walk.

The breeze was so refreshing.

 

I was/need/should go and pick up trash but my heart is not in it …. I feel guilty.

Even though not one piece of said trash came from me.

Isn’t that awful?

 

Special Hello to:  all those Homeowners, it is a big job but so worth it.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 20th day of December, 2015.

Only 4 days until Christmas Eve.

The party was great …. we drank coffee/tea …. we nibbled on sweets ….. we laughed ….. we exchanged gifts ….. we laughed some more.

Isn’t that what getting together over the holidays is all about?

Enjoying the company of friends and loved ones.

The sun is bright this morning and the sky is clear posing to be a great day.

Today will be one of those easy …. tidy up …. finish laundry kind of days.

I am still sitting in my pyjamas sipping on the first cup of coffee …. freshly perked.

 

Isn’t it crazy to know that today is December 20th and almost the New Year?

Each and every year seems to pass more quickly than the one before, not sure why.

I do try and fill each day of each year with so many good moments with lots of good thoughts.

I guess that is all that one can do.

One thing for sure when I compose my annual Christmas letter I always forget things that have happened throughout the year.

Not because they were any less important but mainly I think due to time passing so quickly.

Sometimes I forget that it was just a few months ago…

Time for reflection that is for sure.

 

Well on this last Sunday before Christmas … I hope that you are safe, warm and content.

Safe from any harm that life could bring your way.

Warm being comfortable with a roof over your head, food in your belly and with the bills all paid.

Content in knowing that you have done the very best that you could possibly do in any moment.

Have a great Sunday.

Enjoy a mug of hot chocolate or if you are in a warm place perhaps a fruity beverage.

Take care.

 

Special Hello to: my sisters and brothers all over this beautiful planet …. take care.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 18th day of September, 2014.

WOW, over halfway through this beautiful month of September.

The trees are starting to turn those glorious fall hues.

As Alvin and I were walking around the lake last night it made me realize that this would be the perfect time to have my daughter take our annual photos.

We have had one done of us each fall since I adopted Alvin.

I love to see the changes in us, mainly in me, though.

But both of us are very blessed as we seem to be aging gracefully.

So happy for that…..

So on this beautiful Thursday morning …. still dark outside though …..

I am thinking of all those families out there …..

Whether it is made up of Moms and Dads and children.

Whether it is made up of Moms and children ….

Whether it is made up of a Mom and her puppy …..

Whatever the combination is ……

Take some photos to celebrate your blessed family.

Time is precious as are they and what better way to mark that than a photo of everyone.

I love looking at photos.

It brings back memories of people and places and our beloved furry friends.

I hope that you have a great Thursday.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: all those families ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
