Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 16th day of December, 2015.

Not sure if I was not counting right but this morning when I checked the calendar including day and not including Christmas Day there are “EIGHT” days …..

Really I thought there were like nine or ten….. with Christmas Eve or without …..

I think I lost a day somewhere ….

Oh well …… will have to practice my numbers ….. one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten ….. so far so good.

I guess one just has to have a sense of humour and not be afraid to get the facts/details not quite right.

Sometimes people get so hung up on the facts/details … which I do know are so ¬†important.

But losing sight of what is truly important ….

Why debate with someone over a detail that will not end the world.

Why not let it go …. just move on.

I am a detail person but have found that over the recent years I am slowly letting things go ….

Not getting so hung up that my feelings are hurt if I have to let someone be right even though I know that I am right.

Really what difference does it make.

Something like losing a day when counting.

The fact that it did not snow on this day last year.

Or that Aunt Liz was an avid reader and your cousin thought she was into crafts.

At the end of the day ….. it really is not that important (other than being metrologist and you are really keeping track for historical purposes about the snowfall that is).

I am not sure why … now I remember … I lost count in the days leading up to Christmas.

See 277 words to explain ….

 

Wow, Alvin was just laying down and jumped up and is looking about ….. wonder what that is all about.

I want to keep my house with the only living creatures being Alvin and myself.

 

Well here it is mid week ….

I am always so excited to check the mailbox this time of year to see if I have received any Christmas cards.

I love to receive cards and letters.

Nice to reconnect with family and friends.

Catch up ….. love those letters.

 

Well almost time to get into the bedroom and start to get the “face” on (which is considerably less than in my youth), and dressed for work.

Thank you for reading my blog …. it truly means the world to me.

To be able to connect literally with folks such as yourself from every corner of this planet.

Have a wonderful day.

 

Special Hello to: my friends who always will be my friends….near or far.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 3rd day of December, 2015.

Wow, it is crazy, awesome, fantastic, wonderful, divine, nice, great, WEATHER here in Edmonton.

This morning I did not need gloves but I wore my mini ones because my hands dry out easy.

SO Beautiful ….. I am so GRATEFUL for this wonderful WARM weather.

Yesterday it was melting ….. and what day is it again? ¬†Smiling …..

 

Do you ever have a moment that you feel “OH WOE IS ME” and that moment turns minutes seconds and into minutes and into hours?

We all have them?

Funny how out of the blue then you can receive an email or see a sign and all of a sudden you are reeled back into reality.

Thinking all the while …. “I AM VERY BLESSED.”

It would seem that any time I find myself “HAVING A PITY PARTY FOR ONE” .…. reality brings me back and I realize how super lucky I am.

I have my own house …. more room than I actually need but suits me and Alvin all the same.

I am in good health as is Alvin ….

I have a daughter whom I treasure more than life ….

I have my constant companion her little brother Alvin whom I treasure just as much ….

I have an awesome, amazing good-hearted, super smart son-in-law and GRAND-PUPPIES. (sounds better than GRAND-DOGS)

I work in an office that always gives me a reality check.

I have friends and family all over the world who are simply the best.

I have a sister who is not just a sister but a dear friend.

I have so much and more.

So on this Thursday ….. I am just thinking that the possibilities are endless.

I have so much and can do pretty much whatever I choose.

Just have to choose.

Make the list and start working toward those dreams.

We just have to remember to live our lives and not let our lives live us, make sense.

There will always be those moments when you just cannot rise to the occasion.

That is okay.

Have your pity party and then rise up and carry on.

Today is TERRIFIC THURSDAY …..

We are in the countdown to Christmas.

Last night wrote more Christmas cards and will mail more today and then finish the ones to be mailed, tonight and mail tomorrow.

This weekend I get to BAKE.

I love to bake ….. “sugar cookies” …… “chocolate macaroons” …… “chocolate fudge” …… maybe a couple more items.

YAY …

Well it is time to go and finish getting ready to go to the office.

Have a splendid day…..

 

You are simply the best and do not forget this…..¬†

You can climb to the top and wave the flag ….

I know you can.

 

Special Hello to: my friends back in Regina and in Saskatchewan who are the best ….. thanks guys.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 12th day of December, 2014.

Twelve sleeps until Christmas Eve.

WOW …..

We are officially in countdown mode.

I have a couple of things to do and then I am ready for the big day.

Besides cooking of course.

We are experiencing amazing weather here in Edmonton …

Yesterday was plus 8 ….

Everyone is beginning to think we are in the tropics……going without coats and wearing short pants.

Not likely the best idea but I totally understand.

Quite a lot of our snow has subsequently melted and that is good.

Just can be a bit icy when walking especially home from work at night.

I just take baby steps and my time, of course.

I hope that you are in the throes of “kindness” and “generosity” this holiday season.

There is and will always be someone less fortunate than ourselves ….. just the way of the world.

We are so blessed to have abundance all around us …..

A roof over our heads, good food in our bellies and surrounded by love and laughter.

Make sure that you take the time to help someone less fortunate than yourself this holiday season.

You will feel amazing and it is better than any gift you might open on Christmas.

Helping a fellow human being or an animal in need.

Both need our help today and always.

Have a great Friday.

I will be back tomorrow.

Special Hello to: every living being on the planet Earth – on this Friday I wish you comfort and joy.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Afternoon and Welcome to Saturday the 25th day of October, 2014.

WOW, I am so excited as we are in the final hour countdown until “Our Dear Stella Jewellery” Open House.

Friends, Family, Neighbours, and Co-Workers of ours will be coming to our house in just less than one hour.

We are ready ….. house cleaned check …… beverages ready check …… goodies check ….. and MOST IMPORTANT

of all we have a table set up full of our jewellery …..

My daughter is so creative and did such a great job of setting up …. will post photos later.

Well this will be short as I must go and put the finishing touches on things and perhaps relax for a few moments.

I hope that you are having an amazing day….

Thank you as always for ready my blog.

You rock ……

DREAMS DO COME TRUE.

Special Hello to: YOU ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
