Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 8th day of October, 2017.

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all our Canadian Family and Friends.

It is late morning and we are now back home from our overnight visit with the kids and grand-pups.

We had fun.

Went on two walks, had our photographs taken and had the most delicious meal.

Loved my daughter’s potato dish ….. so yummy.

Always good to try something new.

Alvin is happy to be back home as he is a home “doggie” …… loves to be at home.

Back to work tomorrow so for the rest of today will get a few chores completed and then relax for the evening.

I hope that you all had a good Thanksgiving weekend.

I am thankful for all that we are blessed to have ……

 

Special Hello to:  my family and friends.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 10th day of November, 2016.

Happy Birthday to my brother who rests with the angels, he would have been 53 today.

Gone but not forgotten.

 

The mornings are now dark until I am at work.

It is dark now as I walk home from the bus after work.

Up in the dark and down in the dark.

It is that time of year.

Our walk last night was so beautiful.

I wore a long sleeved t-shirt and a vest instead of a jacket and was plenty warm.

 

Perhaps you are feeling a little blah today with everything that is going on around the world and in your life.

Here is something to think about or ponder.

Hope is what separates us from every other living creature on this planet, and our ability to accessorize.

Perhaps we are not the most intelligent creatures on the planet but we are hopeful.

( I used “ability to accessorize” from part of a line from one of my all-time favourite movies “Steel Magnolias” ).

So no matter what is going on around you just remember there is always hope, always.

As long as human beings inhabit this planet there will always be hope.

It is what gets us out of bed in the morning.

It is what gives us the drive to do better.

It is what gives us a reason to live.

 

Have a great Thursday.

Special Hello to: my friends back home.

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. so excited for Saturday as my daughter and I are taking our Dear Stella Jewellery inventory to a craft sale.

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 5th day of March, 2014.

YAY, me “ALVIN” is back home.

He has been at his sister’s house since Sunday morning.

He came back home last night.

This was the longest that we haven’t seen each other, 3 days and 2 nights.

OH JOYOUS JOY ……

The house just wasn’t home without him.

I thought maybe he would have forgotten me but when he saw me coming into his sister’s house ….. he barked his shrill bark and ran around like he had won the lottery.

Perhaps that is what I need to do.

Anyway I am so happy that my Alvin is back home.

I know he was in great hands and had a good time but I missed him.

We still have not caught the “you know what” and are going to pick up different traps.

We noticed that he has eaten the peanut butter, pooped and left.

How clever.

I have been feeding him on expensive “natural” peanut butter for a week.

Oh well…..

Anyway time to go to work.

It is getting better there as well …… I am beginning to feel more at ease.

Huge change is always a bit unsettling.

So back to myself ….. thank goodness.

I think everyone was wondering.

But I think that once in a while I can have a “overwhelmed” – crazy – crying – down in the dumps – day or two!!

CRASHED and I AM FLYING AGAIN.

Special Hello to:  my cousin “J” who always has my back ….. thanks “J” …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
