Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 10th day of November, 2017.

Today would have been my brother “J’s” 54th Birthday.

Miss you and Happy Birthday …….

 

Life has a way of slipping away second by second, minute by minute, day by day.

No matter how well we live our lives, times passes at the same rate.

Sometimes it feels as though it is passing at lightning speed but it is not.

All we can do is try to live our lives to the best of our abilities.

Some days we may slip before that line.

Some days we may soar above our wildest dreams.

Some days we will be somewhere in between.

Wherever you are …. that is okay.

Just live the best life that you are able.

 

Just do the best that we can and do not feel guilty.

There is way to much guilt in the world.

 

Happy Friday Everyone.

Smile, say something nice to someone, be kind.

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….. Hello, my darling.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 6th day of October, 2017.

Another beautiful day on the way.

Last night we enjoyed our walk – it was shorter than usual as Alvin decided we should go home early.

But it was great all the same.

Also my daughter not only did she drive me to work after a last minute change in plans but she picked me up after work and came for supper.

We always love having her in the house.

She is my claim to fame.

She is my umbrella on a rainy day.

She is the light at the end of every dark tunnel.

She is the sunshine to my days.

I am most grateful to have been blessed with my darling daughter.

 

On this upcoming Thanksgiving weekend – we should all take some time to be grateful.

To be grateful for the food in our fridges, cupboards and pantries.

To be thankful for family and friends.

To be thankful to live in peace and in the best country on the planet, Canada.

To be thankful for clean air and drinking water.

 

There is so much to be thankful that the list would fill many pages.

 

Take care.

Have an awesome Friday.

Keep the faith.

Be kind and generous.

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….. miss you.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 22nd day of September, 2017.

Stopped raining but overcast as do not see stars.

Today is the FIRST official day of FALL/AUTUMN.

Happiness.

I love this time of year.

 

Once the rain stops ….. we will have a chance to see how many leaves have turned colour and how many are actually left on the trees.

 

Reminder to self:

It is my thoughts that create the atmosphere within me.

It is not what is happening around me.

Keeping my thoughts in a positive, wellness pattern.

To keep my atmosphere bright and joyful for both myself and those around me.

 

Happy Friday.

Gotta run.

Alvin would like to go outside again.

Cannot blame the little guy.

 

Special Hello to: my kids who continue to shine a bright light on the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 1st day of September, 2017.

Welcome September.

Gorgeous sunrise.

The sky is this incredible pink with hues of blue and purple.

So pretty.

 

So on this Friday.

I am going to take myself just a little less seriously.

Take a “laugh break” throughout the day.

Be kind to others and to myself – always.

Be in the moment.

This is my Friday mantra.

 

Happy Friday Everyone.

Special Hello to: all those folks starting the month with a birthday, Happy Birthday.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 25th day of August, 2017.

Today is / was my Mom’s Birthday and she would have been 79.

Happy Birthday Mom and I hope that you are laughing with all of our Angels.

 

Okay so thought at this very minute is BANGS.

I envy those ladies who have the patience and have all their hair the same length.

I have always had bangs as you can see from my front page.

I do love bangs but when mine have a mind all their own.

The rest of my hair looks great but my bangs this morning were doing a little jig on their own.

One hair up and another one down all along the way.

So after trying a few things – decided to just wet my bangs and blow them dry.

It worked but took precious time.

Now it is time to go …..

 

I hope that you are having an excellent hair day.

Funny how a few little pieces of hair can disrupt your morning.

I am happy now that they look more normal.

They did have a little dance to start the day and who can argue with that.

Happy Friday.

 

Special Hello: to all those people who got up this morning and looked at their hair and said “dancing again” ……..

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 23rd day of June, 2o17.

Last night we had another lovely walk with our friends Sara and Presley.

Tonight my girl is picking me up from work and coming over for supper and a visit.

Excitement ensues.

Life is great.

Alvin will be happy to see his sister.

Looks like great weather for the weekend.

This morning is bright and sunny ….. YAY.

Well running a tad late …. just had to have those extra few minutes on the sofa snuggling with me Alvin.

The real reason we were up at 4:00 a.m. – right in the middle of some good sleep.

ARGH.

Oh well it is Friday.

Happy Friday.

Keep the faith ….. be cool but not COLD …… BE KIND and RESPECTFUL OF YOURSELF AND OF OTHERS.

Have an awesome Friday.

 

Special Hello to: YOU, remember you are so special.  Give yourself a hug from me.  You are the best.  Enjoy your Friday.  Do something just for you.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 16th day of June, 2017.

Woke up extra early this morning but not on my own with thank to Me Alvin.

So feeling a bit tired and have a headache.

Oh well, it is Friday after all.

The sun was shining earlier but now it has clouded over.

Rain is in the forecast.

We had a wonderful walk with our friends “S” and Presley last night.

 

The air was perfect …..

I keep forgetting to mention the ROSES ….. they are in bloom ……

The fragrance is amazing …….

I love the smell of roses in the early morning.

They line the a path that takes me part way to the bus.

It is like walking in heaven.

 

Well Mr. Alvin had his Momma up at 3:40 a.m. – yes …… you are correct.

So even though we hit the sofa for some zzz’s ….. I am a bit tired.

 

So time to go here.

Listening to Adele in the car with James Corden – Carpool Karaoke.

They are singing a Spice Girls song ……

Tell what you really really want ……

I do not want to leave but I have to run and catch the bus.

 

Thank you for Friday.

Special Hello to:  all those people who write all over the world ……

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 19th day of May, 2017.

Off to a great start weather wise.

Sun is coming up and sky is pretty clear but just in case I am going to take my umbrella.

One snag as I was putting on my stud earrings I lost the back …. thankfully I have an extra one.

Hopefully I find the lost one tonight.

Perhaps it will fall out of my clothing later ……

 

Thinking today is a throwback Friday …..

Remembering this day last year…

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 19th day of May, 2016.

Overcast and a bit windy ….. is RAIN on the way?

Sure hope so even though I am hosting a garage sale tomorrow and Saturday.

It is in the actual garage so we will be dry as will our customers.

I was thinking this morning as I was readying myself for work ….. ” ***** ”

What would it be like to be the “tissue box designer.”

Can you imagine?

Coming up with different scenes to have placed on a box of tissue for all the world to see.

I would love to do that.

How many other jobs out there interest you?

Something out of your current box but something you could totally do if given the opportunity.

Something to ponder for the next day or so.

For me it is time to go to work.

Alas the sofa was calling my name over and over this morning ……

Thank goodness I have tomorrow off ….. thank goodness for vacation days.

Have a great day.

I would love to hear from you as to your ideas on different jobs outside the mainstream office worker, retail, doctor, lawyer, plumber kind of thing.

Special Hello to:  YOU on this Friday.  It will be okay.  Keep you “glass” on the half-full side.  Happy Long weekend.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 5th day of May, 2017.

A glorious morning here in Edmonton.

The sun is smiling as it rises in the East filling the sky with it’s magical beams.

So happy for the weekend.

I am grateful that I have the weekend off so to speak.

Anyone who works outside the home knows – we all have work to do when we get home.

 

On a more somber note and reminder to us all.

It is the time of year when forest and wild fires break out.

Be careful as the cost to lost lives whether animal or human is too high.

They may never be replaced.

Homes and businesses may be replaced.

Memory from one year ago today.

*********************

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 5th day of May, 2016.

It is overcast here in Edmonton this morning.

The air is cool and there is a breeze.

Such a difference from the past couple of days.

I am actually cold this morning.

I only hope that it has cooled off up north where the wildfires are burning out of control.

They need a break.

RAIN and no lightning would be great.

Sounds like everyone was evacuated safely and that is great news.

My heart goes out to all of the animals in the forest surrounding Fort McMurray, Alberta.

I hope that all of the dogs and cats were rescued from the City.

We are so grateful to all those brave men and women whose job is to go into the inferno to fight the fires.

Whether paid or volunteers we thank you.

I hope they are all safe.

To all of the individuals out there who came together to offer up a place to sleep or to gather necessities for the evacuees, we thank you.

Well here it is time to leave for work once again.

The time always passes quickly in the morning.

So on this Thursday be safe.

Special Hello to: all the residents of Fort McMurray, Alberta and surrounding areas, we are grateful that you are safe and secure.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 27th day of April, 2017.

The sky finally appears to have clear breaks ….. our morning sky has been pretty much been overcast for days now.

Some sunshine would be very welcome.

We have had enough moisture for a bit …… I would love some sunshine.

The weekend holds promise weather wise so that is good.

 

Last night my daughter gave me a ride home from work.

On our way to my house we stopped at COSTCO.

COSTCO was busy …… as always.

I love that ride with my daughter and our conversations.

Any time that I spend with my darling girl is most precious.

Picked up a few things before going home to Mr. Alvin.

He was VERY happy to see us both, for sure.

My TEA ORDER arrived as well …..

We had a busy evening ….. putting away groceries……walk with Alvin and sorting the tea orders.

Most of the tea orders goes to my co-workers and another co-worker graciously is giving me a ride to work as my usual ride is not going in that direction today.

So it all worked out.

Just a few minutes until my ride arrives.

I love the change going my car as opposed to the bus.

Public transportation is good however; nothing like a car ride to work, most especially in the morning.

 

So today I am hoping to have a quiet, super PRODUCTIVE day …..

Tonight is my ENERGY HEALING appointment.

I am looking forward to that ….. great way to end or almost end the work week.

I will be working on Friday.

 

Well I had better get my things together.

I hope that you all have an awesome Thursday.

Another great thing about today it is PAYDAY.

Gotta love a Thursday that is payday.

Alvin is patiently watching me from the comfort of the rug in the hallway.

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….. Sunday…… SKYPE…..YES.

Always, Carol & Alvin
