Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 19th day of August, 2016.

It is so much cooler outside the past couple of mornings, so refreshing.

Just means that my favourite season is fast approaching.

Long range forecasts are calling for a warmer than usual fall, and dry.

We have had a wet spring/summer.

Sometimes I like to read about what I was feeling / thinking a year or more ago.

This is what was going on on the same date exactly one year ago.


Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 19th day of August, 2015.

It is an absolutely gorgeous morning here in Edmonton.

I can tell by the temperature in the house that it is warmer this morning than the past few.

The sky is a pale blue with hints of a deeper blue and smudges of pink and orange.

I love the morning sky ….. reminds me of the tie dying days …..

The sun is coming up to shine down on us today.

How are you feeling today?

I feel great.

You know some mornings you just feel like you could conquer the world but in a nice way of course.

I know that today is going to bring some great news.

I am beyond happy.

I have a great life.

I am surrounded by friends and family.

I live with my good little buddy “Alvin” who keeps me centred.

I am blessed to meet friends every day …..

We always meet some new folks from our neighbourhood when we are out and about.

I love getting to know people.

If you are every feeling lonely or down in the dumps.

Try this …. if you have a doggie go for a walk.

You should be walking him or her anyway ….. but nevertheless, go.

If you do not have a doggie then go outside.

Walk down your street.

You must say Hello to everyone you meet.

I have started to say to people after our encounters “thank you for your time.”

It made me feel wonderful just saying the words.

I would love it if someone would acknowledge my time.

I believe we must be more kind and loving to everyone.

Be respectful of time and space.

Well time to go to work.

Alvin needs to go outside one more time.

I hope that you are surrounded by love and laughter.

Two very important things ….

Happy Wednesday everyone.

Special Hello to: to our friend “V” you celebrated a birthday a few days ago ….. you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin


Yes, it was a good reminder to be respectful of everyone’s time.

Also say thank you.

Have a great Friday.

Special Hello to: all my friends and family all over the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Happy “Terrific Tuesday” Everyone!

I am in the midst of trying to figure out how to decorate my desk at work.

We are having a contest and I really would like to participate.

But exactly how and what I should do eludes me.

I come up with an idea and then think of something else.

Whatever I do, it means packing up the decorations and taking them to work.

So I want to make sure that I think of everything.

Are you like me?

Too many choices?  Too many decisions?

Yes, I think there are lots of us out there.

But on the bright side …. whatever choice or decision I go with …

Well, it will be GREAT ….. because it is all about Christmas.

So if you are in the midst of making decisions about Christmas…..

Remember this ….. Christmas is meant to be a happy, spiritual time of year.

A time where we give back to our families and communities ….

So let us not over think and stress over things….

Have a great day everyone.

Special Hello to:  All those folks who love Christmas …. this time of year….. Happy Holidays..

It is my favourite time of year.  I love the music and the joy in the air.

Always, Carol
