Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the first DAY of October, 2014.

Can you believe it?

It is October ….. time to start putting up the Halloween decorations …..

I know what I will be starting to do on the weekend.

Likely it is time to pull the last of the flowers …. yes, I still have some that are blooming.

Poor flowers though, I have been forgetting to water them on a regular basis.

But somehow they are managing to hang in there for yet another day.

I am so grateful.

Love me some flowers.

Also time to pack up the patio furniture and get the deck ready for winter.

Argh, did I say the “w” word.

No….. no I did not.

I do like winter ….. yes, I do.

Well it is that time to ensure that you have your home and yard fallerized ….. winterized.

I just have a few things to do.

If you need to have the furnace cleaned (if you have one) and the vents… most especially the dryer one. ┬áTime to do it.

Change or clean the furnace depending on whether or not you have the “green” or disposables ones.

Last mowing of the grass and fertilize if you do that …..

You know what I love ….. love….. love …

The turning of the leaves …. still some green ones on the tree out front.

But lots of golden ones lying on the ground below the tree.

I love to run or even walk through them …. kicking them about….. hearing them crunch.

Actually the trees that line the street where our office is located they have massive amounts of leaves….

I have walked for almost a block ….. kicking them about and listening to them crunch ….. crunch …. crunch.

So much fun.

What a great way to begin the day.

Well here we go again …. almost time to go to work.

I hope that you have an amazing first day of October.

Mid week ….. a good place to be.

Oh, I had the best night last night….

Alvin and I went on a long walk by the big lake and my friend “G” stopped by to drop off some carrots and to have coffee after her “boot camp” …..

We laughed and talked … talked and laughed.

A great night.

Even with two big mugs of coffee I slept ….. must have been because I went to bed with laughter in my heart and peace in my brain.

Good combination.

Well gotta go.

Special Hello to: all my friend “G” … you are a great friend.

Always, Carol and Alvin


Thought for the day…..

Good Afternoon and Welcome to Saturday the 1st day of February, 2014.

WOW, February ….. fancy that.

Are you excited for this month?

The month of LOVE and ROMANCE.

I am hoping it turns out to be just that.

I have bit the bullet so to speak and am serious about “on-line dating.”

Wish me luck.

It is scary but exciting at the same time.

Have any of you my readers and fellow bloggers ever done the on-line dating thing?

Well I feel that 2014 is the year for me to try new things ….. serious try new things.

Time to get super charged and excited.

Right …

New Year and all that jazz.

Well how about you join me in trying something and exciting.

Doesn’t have to be on-line dating …. just has to be something new.

Let us challenge ourselves.

Get out there and spread your wings.

So have a great Saturday and first day of February.

Special Hello to: All Those People out there spreading their wings and trying something new.

Always, Carol and Alvin
