Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 3rd day of February, 2017.

Another winter morning but it does warm up over the course of the day.

Another super quiet morning with Alvin away at his sister’s house.

He comes home tomorrow.

I spoke to my daughter last night and apparently Alvin is trying hard to play with Aspen.

She gets so excited when he signals play-time that she runs around and scares Mr. Alvin, poor old guy.

Perhaps soon they shall get on the same page and actually have fun and not give each other a bit of anxiety.

But they do love each other and that is the important thing.

The playing will come in time.

Practice makes perfect.

I had a great time at the mall last night.

Ran my errands and did a bit of shopping.

Pretty surprised by the amount of people in the mall.

By listening as people passed there were lots from out of town.

I had decided to treat myself to supper at “Freshi’s” in the food court closest to Bath & Body Works, my old haunt.

The gal in front of me placed her order and had turned to the side.

When I was placing my order she turned around when she heard my voice and low and behold it was one of the girls I worked with at Bath & Body Works.

We ended up having our supper together.  She goes to University and works part-time at one of the stores in the mall.

It was great to catch up.

What are the chances of meeting a friend in line for food.

I will take those chances …..

 

Well here we are almost time to hit the trail again.

Friday, though and that is good.

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello:  Lots of Birthdays today ….. Happy Birthday Everyone.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 16th day of August, 2014.

The breeze feels cools as it wafts in through our bedroom/office window.

YAY ….. thank goodness for the cool morning.

I had fun at the company barbecue yesterday and even won movie passes.

Oh, I “manned” the game …. throwing the blow up beach ball into the garbage can.

OH yeah.

Followed by a few glorious hours at the mall …. West Ed Mall.

It was so packed ….. people all over the place ….hu

Just checking out stores on my list and trying things on.

I even managed to finally get one of my watches in and have the battery changed.

Had a bowl of noodles from Freshi’s and treated myself to a frozen yogurt from Pinkberry.

So great.

Then I went to the store and found that one of my coworkers had left a birthday present for me …..

A beautiful scarf splashed with pinks and whites and a coffee mug with my initial.

Am I not the most lucky woman on the planet.

Such a great day.

It was extremely muggy and I could have lived without that part of the day but being in the mall did help.

It was at the barbecue that was hot and sticky.

I just slept in this morning which was nice.

So time to get some laundry and housework done.

Sometimes when you think that you are just getting by and that no one notices and then you are pleasantly surprised that that just was not the case.

Does that make sense.

Sorry for the long sentence.

Sometimes it is necessary.

I do love my life.

Also I am super excited because I came up with a good story line for a book ….. so am working on that …..

Man it has been a great August …….

Time to go and get dressed.

Words to the wise ……

Never give up.

Also remain positive and keep the light burning bright …..

Life can be great if you think that it is ……

Mine is spectacular.

Special Hello to: my sister and family and friends back in Regina …… we have to SKYPE or something …… miss you all.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

P.S. if you have not yet watched the movie “FROZEN’ ….. then you must.  Great movie and great songs.
