Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 3rd day of June, 2014.

As I sit at the computer and type these words I am feeling pure joy.

I am so blessed to live in this beautiful house.

To have in my possession items that bring back memories of days gone by when evoked by thoughts and feelings or even a glance.

I am surrounded by the best people of the planet …. my family and friends.

I live with me Alvin, my buddy ….

It is just a few weeks away until it is officially summer but I think it is close enough to celebrate.

The temperatures are warmer, the sun rises earlier and stays up later.

We had sun showers yesterday on the way home from work.

My son-in-law opened the cover on the sun roof in the car so we could see the rain as it hit the glass ….. very pretty.

I just have so much to be thankful for and to feel really blessed with in this sometimes very crazy life of mine.

I work at two very different places that cause me to use different skills …. if you will.

So all in all ….. we are great in this household.

I hope that you take a few moments this Tuesday to feel just how blessed you are …. always concentrate on the good stuff.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: my sister ……. yes we are SKYPING this weekend for sure……

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday, the 6th day of July, 2013.

Well yesterday was the garage sale.

I guess by all accounts it was a success.

We sold and gave away lots.

Made a few dollars, and that was good.

Garage sales are always interesting.

You meet all kinds of people.

Our neighbourhood and city is now filled with people from every corner of the planet.

Most people come and say hello and then speak their languages between themselves.

So you never know what they are saying …..

We had a ton of free stuff and that was a big hit.

Also most people barter.

I guess I am not a haggler as I wouldn’t think of bartering down a price.

Part of that process kind of bothers me.

Even when they had boxes and bags of free (good stuff) they still wanted the priced items for less.

Oh well, I have decided after four years of hosting a garage sale or two each summer that I am hanging up my “GARAGE SALE” sign.

Whenever I have things that I do not require they will go to Good Will.

Also I do not buy or request anything “ornamental” as I do not need anything.

I did meet some wonderful people that live close by and that is always good.

Meeting people from all over the world gives me ideas to use in my stories.

Well time to go and get some work done.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those people who have garage sales …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
