Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 22nd day of September, 2017.

Stopped raining but overcast as do not see stars.

Today is the FIRST official day of FALL/AUTUMN.

Happiness.

I love this time of year.

 

Once the rain stops ….. we will have a chance to see how many leaves have turned colour and how many are actually left on the trees.

 

Reminder to self:

It is my thoughts that create the atmosphere within me.

It is not what is happening around me.

Keeping my thoughts in a positive, wellness pattern.

To keep my atmosphere bright and joyful for both myself and those around me.

 

Happy Friday.

Gotta run.

Alvin would like to go outside again.

Cannot blame the little guy.

 

Special Hello to: my kids who continue to shine a bright light on the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 16th day of June, 2015.

Bright sunny morning here in Edmonton.

Spent the evening outside last night with Mr. Alvin ….. first we went for a walk ….. then we, well me … cut the front lawn and raked, pulled some dandelions, watered the flowers front and back, and lawn and visited with neighbours who happened by.

It was absolutely gorgeous out last night.

Unplanned evening but great.

I am so grateful to live in this house with me Alvin in this city and in this country.

We are so blessed.

Well this morning we were up ultra early and then hit the sofa for some zzz’s so the Momma is a bit on the tired side.

Almost time to hit the trail to catch the bus to go to work.

I hope that you all are having an amazing day thus far.

OMG, I almost jumped …. out of the blue … Alvin jumped up quick ….. it would seem that there is a fly in the house …. likely because I had the back door open most of the evening while we were outside.  In the beginning Alvin was in the back yard and I wanted him to be able to come in and see me out front.

Poor little fly does not stand a chance with Mr. Alvin on guard.

Take care ….. be kind to each other.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those tea drinkers out there ….. I just tried the best tea ever …… Roobios (not sure of the spelling) but it had coffee in it …. from Steeped Tea,so yummy.

Always, Carol and Alvin

That Girl – Just a Girl

I am that girl

The girl who smiles everyday

The girl who passes your way

The girl who has a dog

The girl who writes on her blog

The girl who loves life

The girl someday a wife

The girl next door

The girl never a bore

The girl who loves boys

The girl playing with the kids and their toys

The girl who loves flowers

The girl finding her inner power

I am just a girl who loves to dance

I am just a girl starting to take a chance

I am just a girl who loves her dog

I am just a girl reaching out of the fog

I am just a girl with a pure heart

I am just a girl whose smart

I am just a girl who loves to share

I am just a girl who even takes a dare

I am just a girl who loves to shop

I am just a girl loving a new top

I am just a girl who loves starry nights

I am just a girl who believes in what is right

I am just a girl who has a song in her heart

I am just a girl eager to bake that tart

I am just a girl trying to make this poem rhyme

I am just a girl living her life …. this time

I am just a girl who loves to write

I am just a girl who even just might

I am just a girl who thinks so much more

I am just a girl not afraid of a chore

I am just a girl whose funny

I am just a girl loving a bunny

I am just a girl taking the time

I am just a girl a song out of rhyme

I am just a girl

I am that girl….

Earth Day, April 22nd, 2011 in Edmonton, Alberta.

Thought for the day……

I am so excited about 2011.  Lots of ideas are floating around my head …… just have to grab them and get to work.

So the thought for this day is ……. take a chance……..you are a being of perfection …… you can do anything you chose…..

Remember to dream and go for it…….

Have a great 2011 ……. smile it is catching……..  🙂

Always, Carol

My thought for the day……

While I was out to  mow my front lawn, I decided it would be nice to mow the lawns on either side of mine.  My neighbours, of course.

So I did, mowed and raked it all.  Good feeling to do a bit of “manual labour” and will be a pleasant surprise for my girls.

So “My thought for the day” is this:  whenever possible do something nice for someone else.

They will be grateful for your kindness and you will have done a good thing.

Doing good things when not asked to do them …. doing them just because is one of the greatest things you can do.

So remember BE KIND, LEND A HAND and DO SOMETHING OUT OF THE BLUE TO HELP SOMEONE ELSE.

Enjoy your day.  You will only have one chance at this day.  Make it great.

Always, Carol

P.S.   The sun is shining here in Edmonton and Alvin is “quiet” – ready to start vacuuming ….. isn’t life grand.
