Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 30th day of March, 2016.

Second last day of this month …..

WOW.

I think that every month I am surprised when it is the last few days.

No surprise ……

I am grateful this morning to have wonderful family and friends.

I am grateful that our Elton is enjoying life with his Mom & Dad.

Oh and guess what on March 29th here in Edmonton it was 15 degrees celsius.

So beautiful.

 

The past few days perhaps even weeks my mind has turned to poetry.

I have written poems my whole life.

I am inspired by my family, people that I meet, and life.

I was thinking of some poetry that I wrote in High School and will have to find my book to reread them again.

Perhaps I will share some of them.

Here is another one ….. wow almost 26 years ago.

My how time flies.

 

LOVE

My heart is all aglow

With a feeling I don’t know.

Is it love?  Perhaps!

Who will know.

 

Tell me how it feels,

Tell me so I know,

Tell me is it love?

For surely I  don’t know.

 

Written by Carol Lewis – May 10, 1990.

 

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: my family and friends …… love to you all.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 7th day of March, 2016.

Well we have “winter” once again …… it was like being in a snow globe yesterday afternoon and into the evening.

Over those hours the ground is covered in a thick white blanket.

We will need the moisture so it is all good.

 

Well it did not help my friend find her way in a somewhat strange city.

The GPS system in the car was outdated.

Needless to say it was a long out of the way trip to my house.

But she made it, and we had a great visit.

Shared a cup of “Steeped Tea.”

Note: to self …. alway check directions even if you have a GPS system in the vehicle.

 

Wow, here we are one week into March.

Next Sunday we push our clocks ahead one hour.

That will seem odd …. we lose an hour which takes a bit of adjusting.

Alvin and his internal clock – well that is another story.

 

Lots of “thoughts” this weekend.

I need/want to get back to my old positive self, as of late I seem to have gone over to the dark side.

Not entirely that is for sure …. not even half but I want to be 98% positive.

Makes for one JOYFUL Momma when your thoughts are on a silver lining that lack of…..

It is easy to slip into that negative Nelly mode for sure.

Sometimes you do not even realize.

But I do and I will get myself back to where I want/need to be.

 

Mr. Alvin is quiet this morning.

Curled up on the piece of rug that my computer chair is sitting upon ….. he is so cute.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

I am going to have a wonderful day and hope that you do as well.

So happy that my friend made it safe and relatively “sound.”

 

Special Hello to: friends near and far …… Hello, How are you?

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 8th day of March, 2014

HERE WAS MY POSITIVE OUTLOOK FOR YESTERDAY WHICH I DID NOT POST AND WISHED WOULD HAPPEN.

YAY, we finally caught the MOUSE …… it is gone forever and may it rest in peace.

At least it had lots of good meals.

I am so grateful that we no longer have a mouse in our house.

It was a long nine days.

Thank you everyone for your support and ideas.

Now the sensors will keep future ones out.

A few bars of Irish Spring soap cannot hurt either.

YIPEE YIPEE YIPEE ….

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you.

What a great start to my weekend …..

Well unless it is in one of the five traps that are hiding behind every big object on my main floor away from Alvin’s reach …. it is still here.

I am at a loss ….. I simply want “it” gone ….. it has dragged my life for long enough …… I feel like it isn’t my house and I feel like the outsider …. gently and carefully making my way around each room so that I do not come in contact with it.

Nothing seems to work ….. woe is me.

It does seem to be eating all the peanut butter ….. 

Well I better get downstairs as it is going onto 10:00 a.m. and I have lots to do …..

I am brave ….. I am bigger than it …. I am going to catch it today …. not me personally …. I will have my house back again.

I hope that the sensors are working and keeping them outdoors where they belong.

Now if it was Mickey or Minnie that would be another story but it is not.

I know this has been a lot of strange and woeful blogs but I can only write what is going on and how I am feeling.

So thank you so much for reading and the support …..

Maybe I need to bring in the big guns “a cat” …….

Have a great Saturday my friends …..

Special Hello to:  Dave and Baby, my sister’s cats …. oh, how I wished that Dave could come for a visit!!

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 20th day of February, 2014.

Last night I watched the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles being on the Ed Sullivan Show back on February 9th, 1964.

WOW.

Brought back lots of memories but not for me seeing the show as I was seven.

I have always loved their music …..

It evokes every feeling and memory one could imagine.

I have a few favourites and was pleased when those songs were played.

They had some amazing musicians playing in their honour.

Some of my favourite performances were by Joe Walsh – the times on his guitar and then when he sang ….. I had forgotten how great his voice was …..

Everyone turned out to celebrate.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson had front row seats.

Yoko Ono enjoyed the music and even got up to dance …. so cute.

There are so many things that I could write about.

There was a little blonde girl in the audience (belongs to David G) who was rocking out to the Beatles.

I guess her Dad keeps the Beatles alive in their music repertoire.

Well time to get downstairs and finish getting ready for work.

I hope that you were able to watch this show.

It was the best night of music ever.

The last song played was “Hey Jude” and I picked up Mr. Alvin and we danced.

Well rather I danced and held him.

He was not sure what was going on …. although I have danced with him previously.

Have a great day.

Thank you for reading …..

Special Hello to: Beatles Fans

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day…..

How do you really feel at any given moment throughout the day?

Are you a positive person?

Are you resting in the other direction?

Do you feel genuinely happy?

Or do you feel a bit blue most of the time?

Do you feel good/positive or not so good/positive based on what others say and think of you?

More often than not we tend to base our feelings good, bad or indifferent on the “feelings” or thoughts of others.

I want you (and me, too)  from this moment on …… feel based on you.

Based on what is going on around you to you and only you.

If you feel so excited that you could burst because you just saw the cutest baby squirrel.

Then feel that excitement …. feel it down to your core and let those feelings envelope you.

If you feel happy eating a peanut butter sandwich, then do it.

If laying down on the grass in your backyard late at night watching the stars makes you feel so blessed…

Then by all means do that …..

Do whatever it is that makes you HAPPY!

Whatever you are passionate about …. do it.

On this day ….. I am passionate about writing on my blog.

It makes me feel great ….. everything else falls by the wayside.

I am in my own space and time.

For these precious moments I am at my very best …. I feel so happy that I could burst and feel so blessed that I have the words and the means to share them.

Have a great day.

Always, Carol

Thought for the day……

Whenever I feel like things are perhaps working in the opposite direction that I want them to ….

I turn my feelings to the things that I love.

Life is a work of art and sometimes you have to dabble a bit with the paint to get it just right …..

Have a great day.

 

Always, Carol

Thought for the day…….

REMEMBER TO FILL EACH AND EVERY DAY WITH LOVE.

FEELINGS OF LOVE.

THOUGHTS OF LOVE.

ACTIONS FIRED BY LOVE.

MAKE A MENTAL LIST OF EVERYTHING YOU LOVE EACH DAY

BEING FILLED WITH LOVE EACH AND EVERY DAY WILL MAKE ALL OF YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.

HAPPY DAYS EVERYONE.

Always, Carol

Have a great, great day!!
