Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 15th day of September, 2017.

Brr, it is cold in the house and I am so grateful that Mr. Alvin has a fur coat to keep him warm.

Really I do not want to turn on the furnace in the middle of September, but may have no choice.

Will see what happens on the weekend.

 

Tonight after work my daughter is giving me a ride home and coming for supper.

Along the way home we are stopping to pick up a new blade for Alvin’s hair clipper.

It will be nice to give him a proper hair cut.

 

Well I am running late for no reason.

Have a wonderful day.

Remind yourself to be kind and generous.

Be good to yourself and to others.

 

Special Hello to: my daughter who constantly reminds me that there is good in the world by her own actions.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 29th day of November, 2015.

The second last day of November …. where did it go?

I think that we say and think that every single month.

Time just has a way of marching on, right!

That is why it is so important to live each day to the fullest.

Now fullest does not necessarily mean that you have to get up at 5:00 a.m. and go to bed at midnight filling the day full of doing things.

Fullest to me, means that when you go to bed at night that you have done your very best.

I believe that living each day to the fullest is not so much about the number of things that you accomplished from your “list” but more about how you felt, and reacted to situations/people through the course of your day.

We all tend to judge ourselves and others.

How about we try not to.

Turn those nasty thoughts and remarks into a happy dance.

Instead of making others feel bad and making yourself look “like a butt” try to make others feel good …. say something pleasant / do something nice.

You will feel so much better.

Just be your very best self.

Be kind …. Be respectful …… do what you can do to that end.

Do not be disappointed or critical of yourself just do better that is why we have tomorrows.

Living each day to the fullest ….. I smiled at everyone.  I treated myself and others with kindness and respect.  I felt good about how I handled each situation and each encounter.

Food for thought.

Now it is time to get this day going …. Mr. Alvin’s haircut and bath were rescheduled to today as yesterday got away on me.  Finish the laundry and have some fun with me Alvin.

Thank you.

Special Hello: to my fellow humans …. let us always do better today than yesterday.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 18th day of August, 2015.

Wow, it was raining overnight ….. deck still wet.

I thought that I heard the pitter patter of raindrops through the night.

Now the sky is beginning to clear and soon the sun shall be shining.

YAY …. beautiful day here in Edmonton.

Last night Alvin and I went for our walk earlier than our usual after supper/between bedtime.

It was so nice …. not hot and it was quiet.

I would suspect that most people were either on their way home from work or eating supper.

He sniffed along the way as he does.

He is so cute …. my puppy dog.

Tonight my group leader is coming over to assist me with my submitting my first order.

How exciting …. Steeped Tea here I come.

It seems like every few months I decide to change things up or sometimes life just changes things.

I guess change is good ….. sometimes perhaps a bit tiring ….. we find that as we get older.

Somedays you just want to roll out of bed as you naturally wake up ….

Maybe take a stroll in the morning about 7:00 a.m. …..

Maybe after lunch … say mid afternoon ….. curl up on the sofa for a nap.

Well I keep telling myself change is good ….. it keeps me learning …. keeps me going.

Going where …. sometimes not so sure …. but that is okay.

Well almost time to hit the trail to the bus ….. the trail is lined with sidewalk and roses …. how blessed am I.

I hope that you have an amazing Tuesday and wherever life finds and take you that you enjoy it.

Our lives are usually much too short so hop on the change bus and go.

We can do it together.

We gather strength and energy from each other.

Today I give you mine ….. just in case you are feeling a bit low on strength and energy.

Take care.

Special Hello to: all those folks who find something new each day to learn and gather strength and energy from …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 18th day of May, 2015.

YAY, bright and sunny ….. perfect for planting my flowers.

They have been patiently waiting since Friday to be planted.

These pretty flowers have enjoyed the sunshine on the deck during the day and kept warm at night in the garage.

Another windy day …. seems like another breezy spring day.

Me and Alvin are enjoying our time together.

My daughter and grand-puppies came yesterday for a visit.

Both Alvin and I felt as if we were on cloud nine ….. family ….. felt so great.

It is funny that with her presence I felt light and incredibly good.

Some people just have that effect on us, and my daughter always gives me energy and lightness.

Sunday was a great day.

Today planting flowers …. water the lawn later ……

Enjoying this last day of our long weekend.

Just actually sat on the sofa and drank a cup of coffee while it was still “hot” ….. what a concept.

It was so good.

P.S. reminder to all those folks who turned off the “thermostat” or furnace, and have been cold …. just turn it on. I turned it back on in the early evening last night ….. the coolness was making me feel stiff …… not good.  Soon the temperatures overnight will be what our daytime temps are, and then the thermostat can be turned off.  But for now this gal is leaving it on and keeping warm and limber.

Okay time to get this day on the go…..

Starting with an energizing shower …….

Special Hello to: family and friends everywhere.  Miss you all.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday, the 17th day of April 2013.

How are you this morning?

I am feeling great.

The sky is blue and clear and the sun is coming up in the west.

Oh, it always comes up in the west …… why did I say that?

I guess it is a thought.

 

So how many times a day do you think something and before you can say  YAB- A- DAB- A- DOO ….. you say something that is silly and usually not appropriate for the situation.

We think so many thoughts over the course of the day.

I have heard 60,000 …. yikes ….. that is a lot.

So many come to us without us even realizing ….. breathe ….. left leg …step ….. right leg step…

 

So on this mid week day …. let’s keep our thoughts focused on the positive …. the good and the kind.

If your mind wanders to something less than positive and good ….. change it ….

Own it and change it.

Keep the fear out and the love in.

 

OMG, the sun is reflecting off the windows on a neighbouring home ….. so pretty.

Bright …. brilliant gold.

 

Have a great day.

Special Hello to:  YOU and YOU ……

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
