Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 25th day of April, 2017.

I now know why I was having an “off day” ….. apparently there is/was a full moon.

That darn moon always plays with me ……

Cannot see the moon for the overcast sky but I will take the word of the person who made the statement.

Snow and rain mix was most of Monday.

We shall see what happens today.


Well yesterday I wore a new pair of shoes that I had picked up on the weekend from the Thrift store …. big mistake to wear them to work the first day.

They did not feel great with socks off the get go so I removed said socks.

Another mistake.

I had a couple of blisters before day’s end.

So I donned my winter boots and wore them for the rest of the day.

Which leads me to a cute story.

This morning I decided to place a couple of bandaids on my feet on the “delicate spots.”

As I was opening the bandaids – Mr. Alvin came along to check things out.

So I explained to him what I was doing.  He kept watching closely and listening intently.

Man oh man, those eyes of his – could melt even the coldest of hearts.

Big brown … soft beautiful eyes..

As I was opening three ….. he watched and listened and sniffed at each one.

I guess he was making sure that I wasn’t doing wrong.

Such a little honey, my boy.

Lesson learned about the shoes.

They felt so good in the store and were like new.


I have to start incorporating some type of exercise other than walking into my daily routine and it has been a long winter, just saying.


So here we go again to work ….. HI HO …. HI HO ….. it’s off to work I go …..


Okay time to get this SHOW on the road.

I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

Keep safe as you go out and about this day.


Special Hello to:  my fellow bloggers …..

Always, Carol & Alvin






Thought for the day……

I have a question for you all today.

What is the one thing that you always must have in your home or with you?

It can be anything …… your children, perhaps a spouse, mm maybe CHOCOLATE or a bottle of water.

I think that I have one that most people will agree on …. YOUR CELL PHONES, BLACKBERRY,  I-PHONE and all those high tech items that have eluded me to this point.

I am certain that I am one of three, okay maybe ten people on the planet that do not have cell phones.  LOL.

So what is the one thing that I always must have in my home or with me?

Mm, I was thinking about that while I was make a list for you all ……. I guess it would COFFEE.  I always love to have a cup of coffee and most always have coffee in my home.

As far as something that I have with me at all times ….. that would be my purse.  I am one of those gals that carries virtually everything but the kitchen sink.

I always like to be prepared.  So I carry a bit of everything …. band-aids as I am allergic to Elastoplast……pen & small notebook (because you never know and because sometimes I love to jot notes for a story) and much more.

So the thought for the day ….. think about what you like to always have around you.  Maybe it is music ( IPOD’s and Shuffle).  I do love to listen to music.

So many choices……

Have a great great Sunday …..

Always, Carol
