Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 2nd day of September, 2013.

Another breathtakingly gorgeous morning here in Edmonton.

I love listening to music when I am getting ready for work on the weekends.

During the week it seems I don’t think of it but on the weekends before working at the store.

It has become a ritual ….. listening to my favourite “current” songs.

I love “PayPhone” by Maroon 5 and also “Daylight”,  also “Try” by Pink, “Set Fire to the Rain” and “Someone Like You” by Adele and …..

Music always seems to energize me and get me in a great feeling mood.

I love the words and also the melody.

Sometimes I pick Alvin up and dance with him….

Sometimes he is okay with it other times I think he suffers in relative silence likely “thinking “Oh Momma” …..

But that is it for today ….. listen to some music and grab a partner and dance or just kick up your heels on your own.

I hope that you have a great great Monday ….. Happy Labour Day.

I also like Ed Sheeran, Mumford & Son, Terry McDermott, Cee Lo Green and the Lumineers (they are on my downloaded list that I listen to often).

Special Hello to: music lovers …..


Always, Carol and Alvin



Thought for the day……

Good Morning Everyone …. well today is Thursday, May 3rd, 2012.

The sky is partially cloudy here in Edmonton but it is going to be a beautiful sunny day once these early morning clouds dissipate.

Well on this morning ….. I am thinking of one of my favourite shows, “THE VOICE.”

Such talent, and it is great that they have this launching pad for their careers.

I was disappointed when my guy Jamar went home last night but equally  pleased that Juliet made it to the final round.

I think that Cee-Lo’s team is the one to win this year.

Both Jamar and Juliet were amazing.

Good luck to all of the contestants.  They made watching television pure joy.

So as I put the finishing touches on getting ready to leave home for work, I just want to say that you should always follow your dreams and your heart.

These young people on “The Voice” are great examples of following your dreams.

I really enjoyed hearing the top four from last year.


So on this Thursday …. no matter what ….. FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS ….. get out there and just do it.

I am so proud of you and I know that you can do whatever you put your mind to ….. imagine it and it will come.

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to:  all those wonderful singers and their coaches on The Voice …

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. I wish that I could meet Blake Shelton, Cee-Lo Green, Adam Levine and Christina A.  WOW.
