Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 4th day of January, 2015.

The first Sunday of 2015.

Doesn’t 2015 seem almost “futuristic?”

On this COLD Sunday morning the smoke from neighbouring chimneys slowly rises into the sky.

When it is cold everything seems to slow down.

I wonder if the mall will be busy today or will people stay home and keep warm?

The sun is shining and that is great.

We always feel better when the sun shines.

That good old VITAMIN “D” thing …..

Alvin decided to climb into bed with his sister so he not curled up on our bed watching me type these words.

Usually he does …… but not today.

Well it is time to go and finish some coffee and do a couple of things before heading out to work at the store.

I wish you a happy, safe and warm Sunday …. the first one of 2015.

Cool, to be the first one.

Special Hello to: all my Canadian friends who are in the “deep freeze” stay warm.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

OMG, welcome to Monday, September 10th, 2012.

This is my favourite time of year ….. I believe I have mentioned it before …..

This morning the air is only a bit cool and earlier the sky was overcast but now is clear.

We are supposed to have another beautiful week here in Edmonton.

The temperatures have been amazing …. in the high 20’s to 30.


I had a great weekend and the icing on the cake was that I have Alvin his first hair cut all by myself.

I will admit that I missed a couple of spots and one was a tad close (he’s fine) but all in all, he looks as HANDSOME as ever.

It only took me one hour from start to finish and then he had a bath ….. it did take awhile to get all of his hair cleaned up.

Man, he is one hairy little guy ….. he practically filled a small garbage container.  LOL.

But I am proud of myself for doing it all alone.

Saturday was an amazing day as I accomplished so much more than I had even planned …..


I worked from noon to six at the store yesterday….. met more nice people.  Love it.

Even had a visit with my sister “C” via SKYPE …. always amazing, and her guy “G” was there to say hello and chat for a bit……

Well back to the office today.

Alvin is curled up on the ottoman under the window in my office …. looking so “dog gone” cute …..


Also my friend “G” left me a huge bag full of garden vegetables while I was at work.

There are carrots, potatoes, cucumbers and tomatoes.

Good eating, I say.

I am so grateful to have them and her, of course.

Tonight will be carrots and potatoes boiled and then cucumbers and tomatoes chopped up …..

I am excited for supper tonight.

Well time to go ….. I hope that you all had a great weekend.

Till tomorrow….. have a great, great day.

Fill your day with kind and positive thoughts and work on fulfilling your dreams.

Just start “walking” in the direction you wish to go and it will happen …

Special Hello to:  all my new readers, OMG thank you for your time.  I know that I have to start writing that book ….. just have to decide on which one…. so many ideas…..


Always, Carol and Alvin
