Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 5th day of February, 2018.

Happy Birthday to my friend “S.”

Well today is my first day back to work after being gone for a whole week.

Alvin was getting used to me being at home.

I will miss his snuggles the most.

He will miss having a beck and call Momma ….

He likes to go out to the back yard lots whenever I am at home no matter what the weather is like.

It will determine the length of his stay in the back yard, the weather.


So Monday …… what are you thinking about this morning?

Me, well I am nervous.

It almost feels like the first day.

Always is that way for me when I am gone for more than a couple of days.


The temperature remains cold but warmer than last week.

Oh, winter in Alberta, Canada.


This month is a huge birthday month for my family and friends.

My birthday calendar has some for almost each day this month.

I cannot believe that my youngest brother’s youngest turned 21 years old, yesterday.


Time it goes.

That is one measurement or thing in life that you do not have to worry about passing.

If you have a bad day or less than stellar one, well it will pass and then you can try again tomorrow or even later in the day.

We have so many opportunities to make things better.

I guess that is why there is 24 hours in one day and 365 days in a year and so on.


All we have to do is take them.

Give it a try.

No one has a perfect life although sometimes the grass does look greener on the other side.

But you can have your perfect life.

The most perfect life for you.

Just for you.

So take a deep breathe and go to it.

Dream big …. why not?

Do it.

There is no time like the present.

Happy Monday, Everyone.


PS lucky me, I will have a ride to work on my first day back.  My neighbour just called.


Special Hello to: all those celebrating birthdays today including our friend “S.”

Always, Carol & Alvin



Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 2nd day of January, 2015.

Yes, I even remembered it is 2015 at 6:24 this morning.

WOW, so early.

It was so nice to sleep in for a week and now back to reality.

Work both jobs today.

ARGH …. not really …..

It is only because of the time of day.

I prefer a bit later start to the day.

Well it is the New Year.

It was warm yesterday and today starts the dip for the next couple of days.

Also we got about a foot of snow.

So out comes the higher winter boots and my longer warmer coat.

Thank goodness for that earlier purchase.

Well almost time to go and start donning the winter apparel.

It always takes extra time to get that stuff all on.

I hope that you are having a great New Year thus far.

Have a great Friday.

Remember DREAM BIG.

I am ……

Special Hello to: fellow inhabitants of this planet Earth.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 21st day of February, 2014.

Today is my Grandma Stella’s Birthday ….. she was born in 1901 and she would have been 113 today.

Isn’t that crazy ….. I wished that she was still here.

She was a unique and special person ….. she lived her life to her own “beat.”

Happy Birthday Grandma wherever you are …..


Sometimes when I wake up I feel very reflective.

Other times I am thinking of what is going to happen.

I am thinking “WINNING THE LOTTERY” …..

The jackpot is $50 MILLION and our group at work has a ticket.

It is about time that a group won again.

We sure could do lots of amazing things with that much.

It would be about $3.3 million each.

WOW, WOW, and WOW.

Doing my happy dance ….. 🙂


I am so blessed in my life and the money would just be the icing on the cake.

To have financial freedom.


So on this fearless Friday I am dreaming of the big win.

I am visualizing and feeling great.

Thank you Universe.


You know what at the end of the day –  I have already won big.

I have the best puppy dog a gal would ever ask for and the “best” daughter.

I have a great son-in-law and the cutest grand-puppies.

I have my OWN house ( I have always wanted my own place with a yard for flowers).

I have a rocking wonderful sister and two crazy good brothers.

Lots of nieces and nephews and cousins.

I have more friends than a person should be blessed to have ….

I am in great health.

I love my life.


There you  have it ….. I have WON big ……

I am so grateful.

Have the best day everyone.

Dream big and follow your heart.


Special Hello to: my family who are my support and my loves – you are my dream come true.

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin …. my main “dog” ….

Good Morning and welcome to Wednesday, June 6th, 2012.

I have been dreaming for the past several nights.

The feelings that I have from the dreams have all been positive.

I do remember that I met someone (so there is definitely hope yet).

I remember travelling and writing.

I only remember little things nothing really specific other than a guy, being in a foreign place (not sure where) and writing.

I have been dreaming for the past couple of years of being on the fourth hour of the Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda.

It is funny because several years even before they were part of the morning line-up, I had purchased a charm.

You know the ones that clip together and make I think they were called “Italian bracelets” ….. anyway …

I found in a little store in the Cornwall Centre back in Regina ….. this charm that said “TODAY” like the show….

So I guess that was a sign ….. of things to come.

So I will keep dreaming …. I hope that you do, too.

Our life is only as great and amazing as we dream it to be.

That is how I believe it to be.

So have a grand day.

Go out there and dream ….. remember to DREAM BIG.

What is your “Today Show Dream” ?

Special Hello: to all those dreamers …..


Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Wednesday Morning ….. today is March 7th, 2012 ….

Really ….. midweek …… WOW, time truly does fly when you are having fun!!

So what’s new in your life?

Are you enjoying your life?

Are you making it happen?

Your dreams that is.

I know that sometimes it is easy to get off track …. believe me, it happens.

It is always important to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start thinking about what it is that you really want.

What are your dreams?  What do you want to happen in your life, every day.

Perhaps it is to be retired and be at home.

Perhaps it is your dream job ….

Perhaps it is writing a book (that is my dream).

Whatever it may be …..

Start visualizing what you want it to be ….

Feel how good it is to have your dreams come true….

The pieces start to come together when you are feeling great…..

Start small if you want to …… but at the end of the day ….. DREAM BIG.

I believe that everyone’s dreams will come true ….

If you truly believe …… remain positive …… and see the end result.

So for this Wednesday ….. how about playing a game ….. “pretend” …..

Remember when you were a child and you would play pretend ….. how much fun it was …… how good it felt.

Feel in your heart what it would feel like if your dream came true……

I am working on mine…. let us do it together……

Take the time to do this for yourself ……

Have a great day…..

Special Hello:  Happy Birthday Conner ……. he is THREE today.

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin (the man in my life, ruff ruff)……..   🙂

Thought for the day…..

Good Monday Morning Everyone !

I was reminded by a thought when I was in bed last night of something that happened to me when I was a little girl.

This event changed my life forever.

It made me realize that I can do anything ….

If you have read the book “THE SECRET” ……

Then you have heard or read the term “Thoughts become Things” ….

This is so true.

So funny that I have read the book so many times and have been practicing the positive feelings and outlook.

I have read all of the amazing stories of people who using the Law of Attraction have brought miracles of all description into their lives.

Only I had not remembered yet about my miracle.

I can use my mind and my thoughts to create the life that I want ….

Dream BIG.

I am so blessed and I am so grateful.

So on this Monday …… use your mind to create your day ….. deliberately ….. intend it.

This is the best Monday ever!


Special Hello to:  Linda, Mary Lynn, Pat (my coffee buddies from Regina).


Always, Carol
