Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 11th day of April, 2019.

Wow, we are having quite the morning.

We were originally up at 3:00 a.m. and then went downstairs.

Alvin had his glucosamine chew and went outside.

Then we hit the sofa for what was supposed to be 99 minutes and apparently the microwave timer went off but I did not hear it.

So I woke up and it appeared to be getting lighter than it should have been.

I jumped up (scared Alvin) and ran to the kitchen.

Where the microwave clock said “5:58 a.m.”.

It took me a few seconds to wrap my head around the time.

Was it two minutes to 5 or what?

Nope it was 6:00 a.m. (or almost).

So I grabbed my pre cooked oatmeal from the fridge.

Threw it into the microwave to heat.

Quickly grabbed Alvin’s food from the pantry and filled his bowl.

Mixed in some coconut melt and clementine matcha and over top some blueberries.

I wrote just a few lines in my “gratitude journal.”

Ate quickly and then upstairs.

Water piked the teeth (as cannot start the day without that and with blueberries, you get the picture).

Brushed teeth,

slapped on some makeup.

Into clothes which thankfully I always lay out including socks and underwear.

Then grabbed rings, earrings, bracelet and watch.

Oh, in between brushed Alvin’s teeth and filled his upstairs water dish.

Laid down his blanket.

Onto the computer.

Here I am ….. just a tad frazzled.


Well I have to make this short.

As of course, we are late.

I think Alvin has to go outside because I don’t know if he actually “pooped” or not in all of the commotion.


Have an awesome Thursday.

Coffee break??  feel as though I have put in a full day already.

Happy Thursday.


Special Hello to: my family …. always in my heart and thoughts….. love you all.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day……

Yesterday afternoon on coffee break …… I was sitting outside….. enjoying the beautiful weather.

We have a couple of picnic tables in the parking lot right behind our office, and I was sitting at one.

I could see this bug flying right toward me.

At first I thought it might be a small wasp but upon further inspection it was not.

In fact, it was a ladybug.

I had never paid much attention to them in flight before this moment.

But they reminded me of an animated aircraft coming in for a landing.

Wings out …… legs down…..

After it landing it almost looked as though it was shaking itself off.

How cute.

Then it wobbled back and forth on the table in front of me.

So cute.  I wondered, what does a ladybug think, okay perhaps feel ….

She, he probably was just taking a rest from the flight.

After a few moments of going back and forth it disappeared between the cracks in the table.

I looked under the table to see if I could find it but alas it was gone.

A few minutes later it appeared and flew off……

My lucky ladybug….

I am of the mindset that they are a sign of fortune, and I will continue to believe that …..

So that is the story of Carol and the Ladybug…. I shall name him “FRED” ……

For everyone knows Ladybugs really are not ladies but actually gents….. LOL.

Have a great day.

Happy Wednesday….

Always, Carol
