Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 23rd day of June, 2018.

A beautiful morning.

The sun is shining and there is a breeze which at this time remains cool.

We had a nice “storm” last night with a good rain and lots of thunder.

Thankfully the pups are not frightened of the those loud claps of thunder.

We managed to get a walk in before the downpour.

When we left the house it had not felt hot until we were half way through our walk and that was when Alvin decided it was time to go home.

So home we went.

We had a good night.

I watched a couple of movies and played with the pups.

All three of us slept great last night.

We were all up at 6:20 a.m. – YAY.

Breakfast was odd.

Teddy ate some of Alvin’s food and not his own and Alvin ate Teddy’s.

No harm no foul.

Everyone ate.

Teddy is not a breakfast eater for the most part so having had some of Alvin’s at least he ate.

Tonight I will make him the remainder of his food for supper before his Momma comes to pick him up.

We have had a lovely time.

One minor accident this morning but it was fixable.

Things happen.

 

Alvin has his regular appointment at the Vet this morning at 10:30 so Teddy will be coming with us.

Almost time for coffee (after I make it of course).

I can almost smell it.

Today will be laundry and cleaning.

THE NORWEX order arrived yesterday so I will sort it today to be delivered.

 

We are most grateful to live this life.

There are a few “downs” along the way but when I see what other people are living with and through; I cannot help but feel so much peace and gratitude.

I have been blessed with good health, supportive and wonderful family and friends.

I have a house, yes my very own home in partnership with the bank at the moment but in time I will OWN it.

I have me Alvin, who is the best partner one could ever ask for..

I have a full-time job and several part-time ones that I enjoy.

I can write to you every day.

I can dream or not.

I can be me.

So as we travel down the road during our days on this earth – if we are able to just be ourselves – our true selves, that is the most wonderful blessing of all.

 

Happy Saturday Everyone.

Back to my Saturday, coffee, the pups and LAUNDRY ……

 

Special Hello to: Everyone who takes the time to read my words, it means so much to me.  I hope that perhaps some day you learn a little something but most of all I hope that they bring a smile to your

face and warmth to your heart.

Always, Carol & Alvin

The boys:  Teddy and Alvin – enjoying a chew treat.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 4th day of March, 2014.

I feel out of sorts this morning and I will be honest.

My full-time job has changed and after two years of in the position I was just getting comfortable and settled.

The office has restructured and I find myself not dealing with the changes as well as I should and perhaps I should not even be writing about this but writing is my way …. I am a writer.

Also our unwanted house visitor was not found last night so that causes me much anxiety.

I feel like my life is unravelling before my eyes.

I know that is a bit of an exaggeration.

I have not felt like this in many years ….. perhaps it is also because my Alvin is not here.

He slept over at his sister’s house.

Because we have traps out by the dishwasher I did not want to have him in the house.

Anyway …. I need to wipe my tears and suck it up and get on with it.

I thank you for “listening” to my early morning “whining” and I am not even sure if you can call it that …..

So I will keep this short as I need and want to get myself together before I go downstairs.

Maybe it found it’s way inside the trap and that part of my anxiety will be over.

I can only hope.

With regard to the office ….. well all I can do is take it one day at a time.

I am not the only one ….. big changes and it always takes a while to get things back to normal ….. a new normal.

Thank you my friends …..

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: all my friends and family ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, the 24th day of October, 2013.

What would appear to be on most everyone’s radar these days is money.

It would seem by comments from most people these days that everyone is looking for ways to make extra cash.

So, I am offering the question.

How do people go about making extra money?

What if you work full-time but it isn’t quite enough?

What if you want to do something from home?

So other than getting a part-time job which by the way I know so many folks who are working both full and part time jobs.

What do you do?

Perhaps you are passionate about something and could offer lessons about your craft?

Perhaps you could make things and sell them?

Maybe you are an excellent baker and could sell your baked goods.

There are lots of ideas out there.

How do we go about helping people find a way to make extra cash without having to leave their homes?

Is there a way to make money from writing a blog?

Perhaps you can write song lyrics?

So where do you start?

Thank you in advance.

I hope that you are all having a most enjoyable day.

Special Hello: to all those idea creators out there ….

Always, Carol and Alvin
