Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 13th day of January, 2016.

Today marks the 51st Birthday of my youngest brother “T.”

Happy Happy Birthday Little Brother.

I cannot believe he is 51 ….. seems like only yesterday he was a baby.

He was the sweetest little guy you could ever imagine and has grown to be a sensitive lovely man.

Well mid week ….. weather nice ….. temperature mild ….. feeling good ….. life is great.

 

Last night before bed I decided to pull a book from my “library” and read one of my favourite authors.

His name is Alexander McCall Smith, he is from Scotland.

I believe that I have almost every book he has ever published.

I love the charm and wit of his stories.

They take me from wherever I am to the far reaches of the global.

My favourite series is the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

If you have a chance to read these books, I believe there are 7 in the series, please do so.

They will make you laugh and sometimes cry.

Anyway I read the first chapter in one of his books before turning off the light.

Next thing I woke up to go to the bathroom and saw that it was 4:55 a.m. – which is time for us to get out of bed.

WOW, I did not even wake up at all during the night.

Slept right through.

I might doze on the bus ride to work, though……

The night went quickly.

 

Well here we are almost time to grab my lunch, give Alvin some fresh water and get the outer garb on and head out to the bus stop.

I hope that you have a great Wednesday.

Take time to read a book …… always time well spent.

 

Special Hello to: my baby brother …. Happy Birthday.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 18th day of September, 2013.

THIS IS MY 900th BLOG ….. WAHOO WAHOO ……. CLAPPING WILDLY.

Yesterday was beautiful with a slightly cool breeze.

If this weather continues it will make a bunch of people very happy or at least help.

This is gratitude day ….

Well everyday should be gratitude day.

I always write every single day in a journal …. yes, I actually write with a pen and paper.

I have filled many a notebook but I do write in a gratitude journal every morning.

It is part of my morning routine …. it is ritual.

Actually it is part of “our” morning ritual.

This happened yesterday morning and I have to share:

Mr. Alvin stood by my chair (usually he lays on the sofa until I am ready to have my breakfast – he is already done his by this time) and did his little “whiny barking thing” …..

It took me a few minutes to realize that he wanted up in my lap.

Well he isn’t really a lap dog.

I always have to extend my legs straight out on a nearby chair as there would not be room for him.

He used to do this, like last winter but hasn’t done it in months

It was nice to cuddle and write …..

P.S. this morning he just put his paw up on the chair leg asking to be picked up …. ah, how I love my Mr. Alvin.

So on this mid week morning I am so grateful that I have Mr. Alvin in my life ….. even though he cannot talk to me …. he does.

I know that sometimes and trust me I do know this for sure.

 

There are days when it seems like the world has a different plan in store for you meaning that things just do not seem to be going right ….

But listen to your inner voice ….. jump and scream if you have to ….. let it out. Then listen to your inner voice – it does give great advice.

Do not be afraid to ask for help or for some advice.

Well time to get travelling here…..

Have a great great day my friends.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Special Hello to: all those kind and generous people who read my blog …. you have no idea how much it means to me.  I feel like a real author.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

WELCOME EVERYONE …… TODAY IS TUESDAY, JANUARY 1st, 2013 ……

Can you believe it?  2013.

It sounds like a line from a futuristic movie or a book.

This morning is absolutely gorgeous here in Edmonton.

Alvin and I were out on the deck for a few minutes while the coffee was brewing.

You know picking up the poop and scraping off the ice from the steps to the garage.

You know typical stuff for a dog owner and for living where there is ice and snow.

I had a great night last night.

We, me and Alvin snuggled on the sofa and watched a couple of movies.

My favourite was a movie from last year called “New Year’s Eve” …… it had so many of my favourite actors.

I called my sister back in Regina (they are one hour ahead of us) at 11:15 p.m. Edmonton time and wished them a Happy New Year.

Watched the ball drop in Times Square, New York City.

As the clock hit midnight ( I joined in the Canadian countdown ), and gave Mr. Alvin a little kiss on his cheek.

I think he figures I am just a tad crazy.  Oh well, that’s what you do when it is just you and the puppy dog..

Just a few minutes after Midnight  my daughter called me (hard to believe we were both still awake) to wish us a Happy New Year.

So here we go again ….. another year……full of brightness and promise…..dreams ready to be realized……hearts ready to fall in love.

I hope that on this first day of the New Year that you are enjoying yourself.

I plan to make a list of all the things that I need/want/wish for …… and post it so that I can see it everyday.

Point me in the right direction and one by one each item on the list will come to fruition…. I will make it happen.

 

I wish all of my friends and family a great and wonderful New Year, Happy 2013.

I hope that good health, much love and laughter, abundance, wealth and joy paint your path as you go through each day of this New Year.

In fact, I wish this for all of us ….. we all deserve to be healthy, happy and living in abundance.

So let us make it happen.

 

Happy New Year …… Happy 2013…..

 

Special Hello: to all my readers for without you I am just a writer of words, and with you I am an author.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin ….  🙂

Thought for the day……

Wow, today is Friday, March the 2nd, 2012.

Last night Amanda and I watched the last of the Harry Potter movies.

I know ….. it has been almost a year since it was released to the big screen but sometimes things happen.

It was amazing ….. worth the wait.

I wish that I was the next JK Rowling and could/would/was writing a world wide hit.

That would be so cool ….. perhaps in the movie Brad and Angelina, The Tom’s Selleck and Hanks could head the all star cast.

WOW, that would be amazing.

So on this incredible high and using all of my “imaginational” powers ….. I AM CAROL Y LEWIS, Author and WRITER EXTRAORDINAIRE……

I hope that you all have an amazing weekend …. I shall enjoy my Friday off with Amanda and the puppies….. we are going to work on our jewelry and visit.

The sun is already coming up and it is light outside ….. thank goodness for March …. whoops I almost said February…..

Special Hello to: YOU ……and YOU ….. AND YOU, too….

Always, Carol and Alvin and my company …. A, E & P….
