Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 15th day of June, 2015.

It is a bright sunny morning here in Edmonton with little breeze.

Hard to believe it is Monday morning already.

Me and Mr. Alvin had a great weekend ….. there were parts of it that I am pretty certain he would not agree were great but nonetheless it was pretty awesome.

It was almost like a spring cleaning kind of weekend.

The task that I am most proud of accomplishing was painting the porch.

It was windy and I did wear some but JOYFUL noise it is done and looks awesome.

All sparkling white and clean.

Sometimes it is those tasks that we put off because we are somewhat “nervous” or “scared” to do that gives us the most satisfaction when completed.

Now I feel like I can do almost anything.

So it was a great weekend.

We accomplished everything on the “TO DO LIST” and even had time for relaxing.

Snuggles with Mr. Alvin …..

My favourite time.

Yes, I cannot believe the weekend is over.

Time to move onto another week with another weekend coming up.


So make some noise …. you deserve it …… you did it.

Now it is Monday …. the most dreaded day of the week.

Likely for the most part is because it falls after the weekend and most of us just want to stay home and sleep.

I do make the mistake of sleeping in ….. besides really who wants to get out of bed at 5:00 a.m. when you do not have to … well okay, I can think of one little guy ….. me Alvin …… he always wakes up early.  We always get up but not always stay up.

Well time to get this show on the road.

Happy Monday.

Just take a deep breath …..

If I can move my “Fanny Farkle” up and out, I know that you can, too.

We can do it.

Today is going to be awesome, fantastic, great, spectacular and amazing.

It will …..

Special Hello to: my friends back in Regina …. miss you all.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Happy Sunday Everyone!

What are your plans for this sunny Sunday?

Are you spending the day at home?

Are you watching your favourite movie with your family?

Are you using your creative genius to create the next “IT” item?

Are you drinking coffee?

Are you planning to take your dog for a walk?  (Later, I am)

Are you walking on the treadmill because you have one?

Are you chatting with your favourite person on the telephone, SKYPE or on Facebook?

Are you writing a story?

Are you listening to music?

Are you reading a good book?

Are you going shopping?

Whatever you happen to be doing this Sunday.

Just remember that everyone in your “hood”, in your city or town, in Canada, in North America, in the WORLD – is doing “something” this fine Sunday.

Someone might even be doing exactly what you are doing….  🙂

So have a blessed, awesome, amazing, happy, incredible, fabulous, fantastic and cool Sunday.

Also, if you have a wife, husband, children, friend or a pet in close proximity – give them a “kiss” and smile.

Guaranteed this will make your Sunday, extra special.

Always, Carol and of course, Alvin who is recovering from his Momma’s kiss.  LOL
