Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 12th day of January, 2019.

The sun is beginning to rise in the east and I can see a beautiful array of oranges and pinks filling the horizon.

So excited to have a bright sunny day and warmer temperatures.

Up to stay for about 1/2 hour now and first up at 4:00 (give or take a few minutes before 4).

Oh my Mr. Alvin, what a guy.

We have a busy day ahead.

Master Teddy is coming at 9:00 a.m. to spend the day with us.

I always love having him as we brings more joy to our house.

If you were having a less than stellar day well Teddy would change your mood, definitely.

Alvin has his 2nd treatment this morning at the Vet.

So will have both the boys in tow on the walk over.

As I sit here the colours have expanded and there is so much colour on display.

So beautiful.

I can now see yellow in with the pinks and oranges.

It is going to be a beautiful day.

Beautiful, perfect.

 

I was listening to one of the morning shows that I record last night.

It is an American show and they were discussing a wide variety of topics.

SICK DAYS came up.

They were staying that there is talk of doing away with sick days.

Too many people have taken advantage.

Interesting and scary.

 

I wanted to mention this.

My daughter ordered something for me on AMAZON after Christmas.

The order was shipped out in several deliveries.

The first two arrived at my house while I was at home.

My daughter let me know that there had been a delivery only I did not receive that package.

I suppose someone decided that they needed that item more than me.

There are always comments and posts on Facebook and News Reports that packages delivered by Amazon and other on-line companies are stolen

I was grateful that my daughter contacted AMAZON and guess what – not only did they send a replacement but they placed it in CANADA POST.

This time I received the package.

Now I have the full order.

I had been worried and they have restored my faith in humankind.

Thank you Amazon.

Still kind of mad about the fool that stole the package from my front porch.

What kind of people do that?

If you needed the money, why did you not ask?

 

Well time to go and have a shower before Master Teddy arrives.

I am so excited to see him as is Mr. Alvin.

 

Have an awesome Saturday and if you are reading this while the sun is rising …. it is glorious.

As each minute passes it becomes more beautiful.

So beautiful.

 

Special Hello to: my friend V who is so helpful, thank you my friend.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 21st day of November, 2018.

Another beautiful day on the way.

Alvin and I enjoyed the most wonderful walk last night.

The air was calm and warm.

The sidewalks were about 80% clear of ice and snow.

We walked slowly where need be and took in our whole walk.

On the way home we bumped into our friends “A” and Abi (Alvin’s girl friend).

She squealed when she saw us.

She is so cute.

Abi always jumps up and gives me a kiss.

She always makes my day.

It has been awhile.

I had forgot that Abi and Alvin were the same age or pretty close.

Four-legged buddies.

We caught up in each other’s news.

Then on our way home.

 

Tonight is the Guide Christmas Cookie Sale.

I am going with my friend “S” and her daughter.

Should be fun.

There always is a bit of waiting to get into the sale and it is always packed to the rafters.

But one manages to find some cookies and then on our way.

 

I heard on the news last night that CANADA POST says that the strike could go into the New Year.

They were talking about the effect on small businesses whether in stores or on-line; parcels and Christmas cards.

If they are on strike, I am going to wait and mail my cards in January.

It would be a waste of money as there is always the possibility that they would not reach their destination.

Better late than never.

I send cards, photo(s) and letter.

Time spent is not to be wasted.

 

Well here we go again.

Time to leave for work.

 

How are you doing today?

Are you on your way out the door to work or to school?

Do you work from home?

Stay-home Mom? (hardest worker of all)

Whatever you do.

Wherever you go.

May you have a productive, safe, happy day.

 

Special Hello to: my friends all over the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 11th day of October, 2017.

Yesterday was a great start to my “work” week.

I accomplished everything on my work “to do” list.

As I was waiting for the bus with a guy that I know from the office; this car stops and someone was waving.

We looked at each other and wondered aloud was this someone that knew one of us? or thought that they did?

After a few seconds and before the light changed I decided to just walk closer to the car so that I could see who it was,c and it was for me.

A gal that I had met on the bus that lives in a neighbourhood north of me had noticed me so stopped to see if I would like a ride home.

How simply wonderful is that?

Pretty great, I will tell you.

As it turns out she had started to carpool with her son and he is on a week vacation so she is continuing to drive.

She works downtown so she drives right by bus stop.

She had wondered if she would see me.

We had a lovely chat on the way home and she advised that she should be able to give me rides home all this week.

My bus friend said that she will pick me up from my work.

Also said that her son loves tea and has started to drink more and wanted to see a catalogue.

BONUS.

Also our Canada Post is having FREE shipping on parcels every Tuesday in October for those who have this certain small business card, for which I do.

Anyway I had been unable to set up an on-line shipping account until yesterday.

Last night I went to my friend who uses it and was able to print the postage label for my parcel.

BONUS.

What a crazy great day.

Alvin and I had a wonderful walk after work.

I think that today is going to be even better.

So put on your easy going positive cap and walk out your door.

No worries ….. be joyful.

Good things happen.

 

Happy Wednesday.

Yes, my sister I had a great day yesterday.

We will SKYPE soon.

 

Special Hello to: my dear friend “V” ….. always in our thoughts.

Always, Carol & Alvin
