Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 19th day of February, 2018.

The sun is shining brightly.

The wind is blowing so it is not real warm outside.

Today is FAMILY DAY here in Alberta.

So we have the day off from work.

Alvin and I spent the morning thus far up and down from bed and cuddling.

Isn’t that the way most people spend FAMILY DAY?

We had a grand time yesterday with our company.

Teddy and his Aunt.

Company was good.

Food was good.

After they left I watched some of the WINTER OLYMPICS followed by a MOVIE.

So it was late when we went to bed and then I read for awhile.

Alvin slept until 5:00 a.m. which was one whole hour than usual.

It would seem that six hours is the magic number of hours of sleep at night for him.

So this morning we were up and down.

But that is okay …. most of our work has been done already.

Garbage day is tomorrow so you know what that means.

Also there remains looming in the backyard the enormous snowbank in the grass area.

We had a huge amount of snow when I had the flu and I never kept that area shovelled.

So today is the day ….. I see shovelling snow and gathering up garbage.

Shovelling will mean fresh air and exercise so that is good.

I think that Alvin will need his jacket.

Always have to watch that his paws do not get too cold.

They can freeze, you know.

It is quiet in the house, usually is in the morning.

Alvin is laying at the entrance to the office on the rug.

I am clicking away on the keyboard writing this blog.

Life is good.

I am so blessed.

When Teddy’s Aunt J and I were talking last night at supper about family and friends, I told her that I was so blessed and also very grateful for my daughter and son-in-law, siblings and many friends.

My kids are supportive and wonderful.

My friends, well I have the best.

No matter how I may feel every once in awhile, I truly lead a charmed life.

Sometimes in the moment things may seem dark but by the end of the day the light is shining most brightly and life is good.

So it is a decision to put your mind over matter.

To have faith in yourself and others.

To truly believe that life is good and that things will work out.

It is also true that working out may not mean that you won the lottery.

So on this FAMILY DAY …… thank you to my incredible loving, supporting, generous and kind family.

They make me laugh and keep me grounded.

Thank you.

 

Happy Family Day to EVERYONE.

 

Special Hello to: my FAMILY whether you are blood or chosen to be, thank you.  I am grateful to have you in my every increasing circle of life.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Afternoon and Merry Christmas on this 25th day of December, 2013.

WOW, Christmas Day.

It has been an up and down day but mostly up.

 

Earlier today my television “died.”

Not even five years old.

Sure do not make anything to last.

Note to self ….. more expensive Samsung is not always better …..

 

I ended my story today after five months.

So that was great.

I feel a great accomplishment.

 

Santa was good to me.

My favourite gift other than having my kids and puppies here was admission to go and see the Harry Potter Exhibit in February.

My daughter and I are going.

So exciting.

I can hardly wait.

 

Our weather is nice.

Will have to take the puppies for a walk.

 

I spoke to my siblings and that was amazing.

So on the up side my day has been mostly great.

 

I hope that you all are having a great Christmas.

May your day be filled with much love, laughter, a good cup of coffee, some chocolate of course, maybe making a snow angel or three, surrounded by good company and good food.

Merry Christmas from our home to yours.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin …..
