Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 28th day of July, 2014.

It is a glorious day here in the City of Edmonton.

The sun is up, there is a slight breeze and it is cool and comfortable.

It would be a great idea for me to get my bottom more mobile and take Mr. Alvin for an early morning walk.

The next few days are forecasted to be with the humidity in the 30’s ….. pretty hot.

We then have to wait until later in the evening to go for a walk.

I love walking in the evenings but in the morning is also nice.

Only hitch is me.

I am learning and slowly becoming a morning person.

Is there such a think?

Why are we as human beings so much different between morning and night?

I know when I get to work in the mornings which is generally about 7:15 …. when I greet people they sometimes do not reply.

For some reason most people do not function well in the early morning.

Lots of people are what we deem as night owls.

They stay up late whether due to work or play or just because.

Then they sleep in (if possible).

Is there such a thing as an afternoon person?

Food for thought.

Perhaps I will do some research and find out what the experts say on the subject.

But it does intrigue me somewhat.

So on this wonderful Monday morning ….. I hope this finds you well and ready to start your day.

Happy and smiley.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. perhaps this weekend we can catch up.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 14th day of June, 2014.

Bright and sunny with a hint of a breeze that cools the early morning ….. it is almost Nine so not that early.

Well today is going to be a huge day for me …. I have a TO DO LIST about one mile long.

Have you ever had that day when you made out your list and it was almost scary the amount of chores and things you had to do?

Today is that day for me.

It is almost daunting as to where to start.

But all you can do is make that list.

Start at the top ( put something on the top that you can do quickly).

Once you have finished or completed a task – cross it off with a marker or highlighter – something that will stand out.

You will feel so much better that way.

It shows up as you complete the items.

If you get near the bottom or even half way and still too many things to do in the course of one day …. then see what you can do later.

We always get carried away thinking we are SUPER “WOMEN” or “MEN” …… sometimes we are.

So deep breath …… consult the list that I started and write that list.

I will tell you one thing ….. it feels so amazing to cross things off of a list and see what you have accomplished over the course of a day or two compared to just buzzing around trying to think of what you have to do.

Less stressful and I believe wholeheartedly that you accomplish more with a TO DO LIST.

So let’s take off ….. get things done ….. what you cannot easily accomplish today save for tomorrow or perhaps ask for help.

I know that Alvin has had his heart set on mowing the grass for his Momma … and who knows I might get his help.

Now wouldn’t that be a sight ….. watching a doggie pushing the lawn mower.

Which is a push one powered by “muscles” …..

Happy Saturday.

See you back here tomorrow.

Special Hello to: all those people who are looking around and seeing tasks to do and do not know where to start …… write your list ….. have fun.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Hey it’s Thursday, February 2nd, 2012 ……. another gorgeous day in Edmonton.

We have been so blessed this winter.

This morning when Alvin and I were outside the stars seemed extra shiny.

Perhaps they were doing so just for me….. I would like to think so.

It is always wonderful when the morning sky is clear so that I can take in the stars and the moon.

It fills me with wonderment and awe.

I wonder how many other folks are standing outside at that very moment gazing up at the sky.

What are they thinking?

Are they as awe struck as I?

I hope that you take a few moments in the early morning or in the evening to take in our gorgeous sky….

 

Special Hello to: all those star gazers.

Always, Carol and Alvin (who lays on the floor outside my office waiting for me)…….

Thought for the day……

Today I am sitting my grand-puppies Elton & Penny so I am up bright and early (up at 5:00 a.m.) and actually it feels pretty GREAT.

The sun is shining and the air has a quietness of it’s own….. feels like a wonderful meditation.

For anyone who gets up a bit later (which is fine, of course), once in awhile it is good to get up bright and early.

Shake out all those cobwebs (I had a shower) and start your day.

It is just after 6:00 a.m. and this is quite possibly the earliest that I have written on this BLOG.

Have a great day and remember to take the time and get up early (you can always grab 40 winks later in the day) and enjoy your early morning.

Well off to have breakfast (and get that Alvin out of bed).  You see when I came back upstairs to make the bed and have a shower, he figured it was back to bed and jumped up.

I had the bed partially made and just threw down his blanket and he crawled under it (so cute) and is still there.  Time to get up “sleepy head”.   GOL (giggling out loud)

Okay, I am leaving/going now.  Have to remember to turn off the “wireless mouse” ……

Always, Carol
