Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 26th day of October, 2016.

Another one of many dark mornings to come.

Appears to have been raining overnight.

Still mild so sidewalks and streets should be ice free.

Please be careful …..

Wow only a handful of days left until Halloween and then my time.

My time to put up the tree.

My time to decorate the house inside and out.

My time to send Christmas cards, letters and current photo of me and Alvin.

My time to BAKE.

Our time to appreciate all that we have.

I am so grateful that I can make my own choices when it comes to the above.

I am so grateful for all those who watch over and look after us all.

I am so grateful for my family and friends.

It was a late night and early morning.

I honestly slept in a bit so have to cut this short.

So much running through my head.

One thing:  can I really leave the house with my hair like this?

Yes, I can because I have no time.

It is clean but a little wild.

Will blame it on “being older.”

It could work.


Good for a giggle.

Honestly it is not that bad.


Am I trying to convince myself?


Time to go.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Live in the moment and be mindful.

Special Hello to: my friends and family.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thoughts for the day….

Pets are like children.

Last night Alvin woke up at 2:00 and then at 4:00.  I was able to convince him to go back to sleep “ALVIN, go back to sleep”, I said.

That was the first time.  The second time at 4:00 ….. no way.  He jumped off the bed (yes, he sleeps with his Mama, spoiled “nope”).

At that point there is not much hope that he will return to bed …. so that is my queue to get my butt out of bed and go downstairs.

So I go down and I grab my shoes and we head out to the backyard.  He does his “business” ….. okay peed and pooped.  Double good.

Anyway ….. seeing as though it was only 4:10 by this time, I figured that I would set the timer on the microwave so that I could catch

a couple of extra winks.  So I did just that.  Alvin laid down (sort of ).  Then I was awaken by the alarm and it is a buzzing noise.

Most annoying.  The alarm is upstairs of course in my bedroom.  Yes, I had forgot to turn it off before heading downstairs at 4:00 a.m.

By this time it is 5:00 and Alvin is ready to eat.  So I turned off the alarm.  Feed Alvin and see that there is still 11 minutes and 47 seconds

left out of my 60 minutes that I had entered into the microwave clock.  Okay gotta go here.  But you get the picture.

Your pets are like your children.  They basically RULE the household.  I love Alvin with all of my heart but I sure wished his inner alarm

clock would go off when my alarm goes off….

Anyway thought for the day ……. we spend most of our life “training the kids and training the pets” and some are lucky to throw a spouse into the mix.

If you happen to be a spouse and reading this ….. please do not take offence.

Have a great day.


Always, Carol
