Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 4th day of July, 2013.

Happy 4th of July to all our Neighbours to the South ….. I wish you a day surrounded by your loved ones, filled with love and laughter.

Canada Day was July 1st and was on Monday.  I hope that each and every Canadian had a great day.

I have been under the weather over much of my vacation, and I hope that the antibiotics kick in, and this last few days are better.

Tomorrow I am going to host a garage sale.

Isn’t it amazing how you can have so much stuff that you do no need.

I haven’t even bought anything for the house in over two years and still have things I do not require.

I love garage sales.

Not only do you dispose of those unwanted items but you meet people and make some money.

How can you not love garage sales?

I also have found that as I get older I do not have the infinity of material things as much as when I was younger.

Such as it is …… that’s life.

Well it started out to be sunny with baby blue skies and now the sky is overcast.

We have had hot, hot weather this first week in July of 2013.

I hope that wherever you are that you are in great health ….. at the end of it all …. if you do not have great health how can you do anything.

I sure wished with all of my heart and soul and brain that I was in perfect health.

These past few days have been less than stellar.

I want to enjoy each day.

Time to change the focus and think of pink gums and healthy teeth ( I have an abscessed tooth) and before that had a sore throat and then lost my voice for seven days.

Oh the joys of life.

I am wishing for perfect health so that I may enjoy the rest of my vacation.

Time to go and have a shower so that I can start preparing for the garage sale.

Have a great day and I am already starting to feel better.

Me and Alvin did enjoy a walk by the lake this morning ….. the roses, OMG so beautiful …. they lifted me away.

I know that the rest of my vacation is going to be GREAT.

I should also add that I did enjoy the visit with my niece and her family over the long weekend.

Special Hello to: all those folks on vacation at this time …. I hope that you are having a blast.


Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013.

I must apologize for not writing as of late ……. had company from Saskatchewan, worked at the store and “sick.”

I hope that all of my Canadian friends and family had a great long Canada Day weekend.

Some of my family from Saskatchewan were here for the long weekend and that was so great.

Last week started out having sore throat, chills, graduated to no voice for several days and now have an infection in my mouth (tooth).

So am off to the Doctor’s office .

I am on vacation, so hopefully I can get some medicine and get feeling 100% quickly.

Have a great day and I will be back tomorrow for my regular writings.

Thank you for your patience.

Have a wonderful day.

Oh it has been HOT HOT HOT here in Edmonton ….. +30 for the past four days.

I am so grateful to have central AIR.

Time to turn it on.

Nice to see the sun shining.


Special Hello to my niece Dee and her family ….. it was so wonderful to have you guys here with us for the weekend.  You are welcome back anytime.

Always, Carol and Alvin …..

Thought for the day….

Wow, here we are another Friday morning and today is June 29th, 2012.

Only a couple more days until July 1st, Canada Day.

The day that we celebrate our great country, our Canada.

We are so blessed to live in such an amazing country.

We have beautiful landscapes, fresh air, clean water, a diverse population from every corner of the planet, yummy food from all over the world, and most importantly PEACE  and FREEDOM.

We are peacekeepers….

What more could one ask for ….. I know that I have simplified how great Canada is…. as,  I could literally write all day about my beloved country.

I hope that you all have some great plans for the Canada Day weekend.

I will be at home (which is fine by me) …..

Saturday I will be catching up on the housework after last weekend’s three day garage sale.

On Sunday, I will be working at Bath & Body Works.

So that will be great – I will get to wish everyone a Happy Canada Day and see how people are celebrating.

When my shift is over at 6:00 …. I am invited to a friend’s birthday celebration.

Then on Monday my daughter and I are going to have a “jewelry making” day or at least part of the day.

So I will be busy starting today working both jobs.

Alvin gets to go to Amanda’s for a sleepover tonight and on Sunday….. so lucky him.

I hope that come Monday …. perhaps you will share some of your Canada Day Celebration stories with me.

Special Hello to:  all Canadians as we start our Canada Day weekend ….

Always Carol and Alvin

P.S. I was so excited that I published my blog and forgot to add my sign off …… oh well, it is Friday…..

See you all on Monday….. thanks for reading.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning Everyone,

How did you spend your Canada Day?

I was working at Bath & Body Works at West Edmonton Mall.

I met so many folks from all over the world.

Some just moved here from Europe.

So many wonderful people.

I had a great day.

Spent a quiet evening with my dog, Alvin.

We had a nice walk.

It was a great way to end the day…..


Always, Carol
