Thought for the day …….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 21st day of July, 2015.

It is a wonderful morning here in Edmonton ….. the sun is rising, the rain clouds have almost dissipated and there is a bit of a breeze.

Forecast is for another warm one ….. not super hot and that is great.

On Saturday while at our Vet Clinic, I ordered a water bottle for Alvin.

One that I can carry while we walk.

Guess what …. there was a message from them …. the bottle is in.

Already, I am thinking….. wow, that is fast.

I guess with computers ….. no more paper orders …. just click and then it is in the mail or perhaps hand delivered.

I am so excited to see which one they could order.

Last night one of my neighbours called to come for a visit ….. I was drinking tea and made her a cup of coffee.

She loves the coffee that I make in my percolator.

Alvin loves company ….. he was so excited …..

We had a great visit followed by a walk with Mr. Alvin.

What a wonderful evening.

Do you ever think of an item that you could use but there is really nothing on the market?

Consider making something but wonder where do you start?

I was thinking about something…..

I will keep it a secret until I figure a few things out.

Who knows maybe I will re-invent something ….. just a bit different that is currently on the market.

Well here it is almost time to leave for work once again.

Where does the time go?

Sometimes it feels like someone is holding up a giant vacuum at the top of the world pulling moments up one by one.

Well doesn’t that sound a bit better than the actual reason?

I wish you an awesome Tuesday.

I know that this is going to be a great great day.

Filled with all good things.

Special Hello to: all my fellow bloggers, I hope that you are enjoying your summer(s).

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 18th day of March, 2014.

How was your St. Paddy’s Day ( realized the correct spelling )?

Mine was interesting…… all good on the St. Patrick’s side, anyway.

 

Here we are fast approaching the first day of spring, 2014.

Can you believe it is almost the end of March, already.

Wasn’t it just New Year’s Eve?

 

I am so grateful that the sun is warming the earth here and all around us.

I am so grateful that the snow is melting and that the earth is showing once again.

I am so grateful for the smells and sounds of spring.

 

So on this timely Tuesday – I am so grateful to be alive.

I was thinking this morning I wonder what my grandparents would think of what is going on around us if they were alive?

My Grandma Stella would have embraced the internet and all that it brings.

I could see her sending emails as she loved to write letters  …. perhaps in the beginning she might have been a bit reluctant but she would have converted and surfing the world wide “web.”

I am always amazed by how much of our glorious older people have embraced technology with cellphones and email.

 

I hope that you have an amazing Tuesday.

If you happen to find yourself in a situation that starts to remove your positive sunny outlook and peace of mind ….. stop take a deep breath.

If you can remove yourself from the situation.

If not, with your sunniest face ….. just carry on.

Find the right words …. always good to have a “catch word” that can bring you to your best place.

I have found myself as of late stepping off my glorious plane of peace and positive energy to the “dark side.”

It is not something that I am proud of nor to I wish to stay there but it has happened.

So I am going to practice what I “preach.”

After all, we are all human.

I hope that you have a lovely day.

Wish me luck and I, you.

Take care, my friends.

Special Hello to: my cousin “J” and my sister “C” ….. who have always been supportive and loving ….. thank you.

Always, Carol

P.S. very excited that our first Trade Show for our Dear Stella Jewellery is only four sleeps aways…… YAY

Thought for the day….

Good Tuesday Morning … the date is March 27th, 2012.

I still am in awe that we are in 2012 …. seems like only yesterday that we were preparing for the new millennium.

Do you remember the hype, anxiety and excitement that surrounded going from 1999 to 2000?

At the end of it all when the clock struck midnight on December 31st, 1999 ….. the world was still operating, and we were fine.

I am so grateful that I was alive to bring in the new millennium.  Very exciting.

I only wish that my grandmother had lived for a few more years to bring in the year 2000.

She had been born in 1901 and passed away in 1998.

When I think back to all of the things that she experienced during her lifetime  ….  being one of the first women to have her own car(s), man walking on the moon, beginning of the technology age, and first computers.

So much to even remember…..

So take a moment or two and think about all of the changes since you were born……. it seems like everyday there is something new and exciting.

I hope that you have fun remembering ….

Have a great day.

Perhaps you would like to drop me a line and let me know what your favourite / most interesting invention or change/update has been?

Special Hello to:  all those inventors…… idea people …… you rock.

“Gotta run” ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

On this Saturday …… my thoughts lean toward “keeping in touch with family & friends”.

Often times,  we get too busy and consumed with our daily lives, and forget to contact our loved ones.

The days can zip by and before you know it ….. weeks, months and yes, sometimes even years have passed by.

So pick up that phone or turn on your computer and send an email.

With all the modern day technology ….. it is very easy….

Have the best day ….. MY LOVED ONES…… yes, that includes ALL OF YOU.

 

Always, Carol
