Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 30th day of November, 2018.

The last day of November, 2018.

Tomorrow is December 1st, 2018 and ONLY 24 Days till Christmas.

 

How do you celebrate Christmas?

 

Do you travel to a warm climate?

Perhaps you lay on a beach and have seafood for Christmas dinner.

That would be nice.

 

Do you go to your parents?

Perhaps they live hundreds of miles away.

Do you fly or drive or take a train?

Turkey or Ham?  Both.

 

Do you go to your in-laws?

Perhaps they live just down the street.

Do you take dessert?

 

Do you stay at home?

Perhaps family and friends come to your home.

You like to cook and to entertain.

Your family and friends like your cooking and love when you entertain.

 

Wherever you are, wherever you go.

I wish you a safe, health, happy, joyful Christmas.

I believe that we should keep the joy in our hearts and give to ourselves and to our fellow “humans” and to all living creatures ALL year long.

If we are joyful ….. we will do good things.

Keep the Christmas spirit all year long.

 

This weekend I am going to finish up Christmas cards.

Some will be mailed and others hand delivered.

It is a tradition that I will do forever.

 

Well almost time to go.

We had some freezing snow pellets either late last night or earlier this morning.

They were on the deck when we awoke earlier.

 

I hope that you have an awesome Friday.

Celebrate the greatness that November was and that December will be.

Happy Day.

 

Special Hello: to all those people who keep the Christmas spirit alive all year long.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 5th day of April, 2017.

First week of April and the weather is beautiful.

Last night Alvin and I had a wonderful walk.

 

Today is the 7th Anniversary of my FIRST BLOG ever …..

I named my blog after the major change in my life which happened at 51.

It was not until a couple of years later that I chose  “My New Life at 51” as my blog name.

I had wanted to entertain and inspire anyone who took the time to read my words.

Writing is the one constant that has been in my life since I was a small child.

Whether writing poems for my Grandmother at Valentine’s Day or one for my Mom on her Birthday; I tried my hand.

A poem for my daughter’s class play.

I loved writing in school and did well.

My next project will be writing a book ….. it has been a dream of mine for a long time.

One that I can have published.

I just have to decide on a storyline and go.

I just keep changing my mind ….. is that not the beauty of writing ……. you can always change your mind.

Change the lines ….. change the story ….

 

 

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

I hope that you have enjoyed this journey with me and will continue.

With gratitude and hopes that I can bring a smile to your face and perhaps be inspirational along the way.

 

Have an awesome day.

Special Hello to: all those folks who write and to those who read what we have written …. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 12th day of September, 2015.

The sun is up and the sky is clear and there is a breeze.

YAY for Saturday.

In just over one hour my friends “G” and “S” are coming for coffee and a visit.

I miss them as we have not had a regular coffee visit together for a while.

Summer is busy for families.

Following their visit my daughter is coming for a visit, too.

What a great day.

Mr. Alvin is pacing the floor as he is excited for all of our company.

Wouldn’t it be nice if that is all a person had to do was to visit with family and friends.

Just entertain.

Entertain only.

I would love that ….

I definitely could have been the wife of a big CEO, and spent my time entertaining and doing charity work.

Well maybe not all of the time but I do love the though of entertaining.

Visiting …. chatting …. the planning and the execution.

What are the things that you love to do?

I have been thinking of that a lot as of late.

After you reach and past the age of “55” and now I am 58, you do spend time thinking about all the things you would like to be doing.

There has to be a way, right.

Yell up at the Universe … show me the way.

Something like that …..

Well slowly but surely I will get there.

I am doing some of the things that I love but only in small parcels …. that has to change.

I will find a way.

I will.

Well time for a shower and prepare for my, our company.

I hope that you have an awesome Saturday.

Remember do the things that you love / are passionate about and then find a way to make money doing them.

Special Hello to: my friends “V” and “M” who are doing the things they love.

Always, Carol and Alvin
