Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 9th day of May, 2017.

Well the sky is overcast somewhat with patches of a lighter blue sky.

I cannot see the sun rising but I know it is happening.

Morning is here and the day has begun.

 

Last night my friend “P” called just as Alvin and I were about to head out for our walk.

She wondered if I might be interested in some extra plants?

Well no second thought there, of course “yes.”

She is my English friend that has the most amazing garden(s) and yard.

Last year she gave me several plants and I am happy to report that they are coming up and are green.

I can hardly wait to see the colours ……

So last night I planted a grass plant and some ferns.

The grass plant in the back and the fern in the front flower bed.

The remaining plants are here in the house until the major threat of frost is over.

Some of those plants in the house are “snapdragons” and I love their delicate flowers.

So exciting.

I am so blessed as I have some of the most kind and generous friends on the planet.

 

Well almost time to hit the road for the bus.

Dressing a bit warmer than original planned as it feels cooler outside.

I can always remove a layer.

 

Have an awesome Tuesday.

Thank you for reading my blog.

 

You know that it does not take much to make someone’s day.

Remember that during your travels.

I will.

 

Special Hello to: my sister and nieces ……

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ……. HAPPY NEW YEAR

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the very first day of January and of the New Year “2014.”

Well we were in bed before midnight.

We did see the ball drop in New York due to the time difference, thank you.

Someone in the neighbourhood lit fireworks so we listened to them but I was too “lazy” to get out of bed to see them.

I read the first chapter of one of Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book “Change your thoughts …. Change your life.”

Good way to end 2013 ….. reading.

I hope that you all had a great New Year’s Eve.

Now we are entering another New Year.

Time to be better people.

We can do it.

Starting today ….. be kind ….. be good …. be generous and be grateful.

Well I am on my way to the store to work a shift.

Should be fun …. I get to say “Happy New Year” ……

Much more fun than “Good Morning or Good Afternoon.”

Thank you for reading my blog.

I am so grateful.

Special Hello to: friends and family all over the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 30th of December and the second last day of 2013.

WOW, is it just me or that 2013 go by extra fast.

Always at the end of the year we made “resolutions” for weight loss, to spend less and to save more, and on and on.

I have not really made resolutions for the simple reason they mostly seem to be doomed from the start.

So instead I just decide to be a better person.

I always try to be better than the day before ….. more kind …. more patient….more grateful.

If you work on the inside the outside will follow.

You must love yourself before anything else will work.

So on this day ….. just be a good person.

Have to run …. time to go to work.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to YOU.

 

ALLways, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 24th day of December, 2014 and Christmas Eve.

On this special eve before Christmas Day, I would like to take this opportunity …. to WISH

To wish each and everyone the most wonderful Christmas of all.

May you be surrounded by the love and laughter of family and friends.

May you be surrounded by great joy and live in good health.

May you live in abundance every single day.

May your dreams continue to come true.

May you live your life with some “wreck-less abandon.”

Remember to be kind and generous.

Remember to be grateful …. always a good place to start.

May Santa bring you that special gift that makes you giggle with joy.

That would bring a smile to my face and more warmth to my heart.

Happy Christmas.

Special Hello to: all my family and friends, near and far, we are thinking of you and wish you were here or we were there.

With Love Always, Carol and Alvin

My daughter, Alvin and I went on this photo adventure on Saturday.  It was minus 30.  We got some "cool" shots.  Alvin thought it was a real deer..... grr
