Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 8th day of March, 2017.

Another brr COLD morning as was evident when I opened the back door to let Alvin outside.

Thank goodness he has a warm coat and boots so to speak.

Naturally of course.

When we walk at night – I add one of his jackets depending on the weather.

I would have tried booties with him but because of his “foot fetish” – likely not a great idea.

We enjoyed another brisk walk last night.

Which is good ….. short but fast.

I could feel my heart rate increasing.

 

This morning I have been thinking about the choices we make.

We make choices in every second of every day.

We decide whether to wear the black pants or the brown ones.

We decide whether to take an apple and peanut butter sandwich for lunch or to buy lunch.

We decide whether to send that email or not.

We decide whether we want to have a great day or not.

We decide whether to hold the door open for a senior.

We decide whether to write that story or not.

We decide whether to go for a walk or to vegetate on the sofa.

We decide so many things – coffee or tea.

 

Now some of these choices are not totally our own.

Some we make dependent on life or lifestyle.

Some people would prefer not to work but if you want a roof over your head and food in your belly – it is a must.

But you can certainly choose where you work.

For as many of the choices that we must make just to live our lives there are many more that we have more control over ….

So when you think that life is getting you down and that you have no choices.

Trust me you have plenty.

Start making the ones that will bring joy to your heart and a smile to your face.

 

Have an awesome Wednesday.

Make a choice today to smile at every person you encounter.

That will for sure bring some good energy your way.

Who knows maybe even that person you have been dreaming about …..

Just smile…

 

Time to get going …… the bus you know.

Public transportation.

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day….

Do you ever wonder who came up with the following and why?

24 hours in a day?  (yes, I know the scientific stuff) But really, WHY?

Who named an apple, an apple?

Why do turtles lay eggs?

Why do birds lay eggs?

Why does the grass seem to grow six inches overnight?

Why does Alvin love to pull on my pant leg or chew on my foot when I return after leaving the house?

Note:  he always give me love for the first 20 seconds!

Why do flowers smell so amazing?

Why, why, why????

Today is my WHY day.

So on this Monday – take the time to ask questions?

You can ask them to yourself?

There are so many wondrous things in this world, and really how did they come about and WHO gave everything it’s name?

Like why is cheese – cheese and poop – poop.

I think it would be wonderful to be the person or entity in charge or NAMING THINGS!!  What fun.

Have a great great day everyone.

Always, Carol

Why

P.S. this is my “269th” post.  Time to celebrate.  WOW.  Thank you for coming along with me, as I make my way to fulfilling my life-long dream to be a published writer/author, and of course to make you SMILE AND PERHAPS GIGGLE, now and again.

Who would have thought !

Last week when Amanda was over for a visit she took Alvin outside to go to the bathroom.  To the backyard.  There was a small plastic storage bag lying on the ground.  Alvin ran over to the bag, and picked it up before Amanda could reach him.  To her surprise, he ran over, and gave her the bag.  I guess the “apple” doesn’t fall far from the tree.  LOL. Sounds like Alvin’s neighbourhood watching has paid off.  I have a puppy that picks up garbage.  YAY.  Now if I can only get all of the two legged animals to follow suit, I will be most grateful.  Hard to believe, but it is true.  Sure wished that I would have had a camera handy.  That would have made for a good submission to America’s Funniest Videos……
