Thought for the day……

Good Morning and welcome to Monday, October 22, 2012 ….. whoops I missed a date somewhere.

Earlier when I was writing in my gratitude journal I marked today as Monday, October 21st, 2012.

So somewhere over the weekend I got one day behind…….

Oh well …….

So what is your plan for this day, for this week …..

I have work for the first three days followed by a one day seminar/course at work and then my Friday off.

I am so blessed that I can work the extra time each week so that every second week I can get an extra day off.

It makes having a second job easier with having a two day weekend here and there.

This past weekend was grand.  I got lots of housework done (still have to do the fans, light fixtures and baseboards but perhaps that will be this coming up weekend).

Also was able to have a couple of “coffee visits” and spend an afternoon working on jewelry ….. I made a beautiful necklace with touches of red.

It will be posted on FB over the next week or so.

I love making jewelry …. so relaxing.

So that was my weekend and my week to come.  I hope that you are enjoying life.

Even though most of us have to work to support our habits of having a roof over our heads and eating …. (giggling out loud) …. I hope that in between you can find the time to relax, have a few laughs and simply enjoy your time on this earth.

I am going to practice being a better person ….. I always try to do better than the day before and perhaps one day I shall strike perfection …. whatever that may be.

So on this Monday …. I hope that you are feeling great ….. that you had a wonderful sleep and that you have a comfy bed.

I hope that you are surrounded by love and laughter.

Take care.

Special Hello to:  us all …….


Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Wow, today is Monday, October 1st, 2012 …… it has been a few day since my last blog.

I enjoyed my Friday off and accomplished most of my TO DO LIST and worked at the store that evening.

Saturday I spent a good portion of the day starting to organize our beads and jewelry.

It is always good to reorganize things from time to time.

It is still a work in progress.  I had no idea that we had so many beads, charms etc.

Yesterday I worked at the store.

That was my weekend.

In between the work, I enjoyed coffee visits with my daughter and my friend “G” ….. and snuggles and walks with Alvin.

So at the end of it all those were the most important.  Time well spent.

I hope that you have a great Monday and welcome to October.

Where has the time gone?

Time to put the finishing touches on outdoor prep …. (cover the a/c unit, pull some of the flowers (most of mine are still blooming).

Have a great day.

Special Hello to:  Artists of the World …… for all of your creations …. thank you.


Always, Carol and Alvin
